Over the course of more than 25 years in business, GMS Dental Centers have established the kind of long-term relationships with patients that allow an office to thrive. The company employs many licensed dentists, hygienists, and dental specialists, as well as a former IRS agent who gets paid in people not yelling at him. Each location treats kids and adults to cosmetic, preventative, and procedural care, and dental teams also perform ultra-modern services such as Zoom! whitening, straightening with Invisalign, and installing quarter-inch HDTVs in incisors.
Over the last 10 years, Skin Essentials Med Spa & Hair Salon owner Kelly Davis has prettified more than 1,000 faces with the SofTap permanent-makeup technique. She sidesteps the racket and pain of traditional tattoo-machine methods to gently apply the pigment with a hand tool, giving her absolute control to craft a subtle lip shape or a seductively arched brow. Guests can find similar attention to detail in the spa's repertoire of other beautifying services, from simple mani-pedis to advanced exfoliation peels that obscure signs of aging. Injections of Botox or Restylane keep skin surfaces as smooth as a pancake, and full-body scrubs and masks treat the whole physique to ensure that even your Achilles' heel embodies a beauty that belies its vulnerability.
While the staffers at Summit Dental Center treat patients of all ages, they go the extra mile to give kids a reason to look forward to their dental visits. A play area entertains young patients before their turn in the dental chair. After a routine checkup, cavity filling, or orthodontic session, they leave the office with a gift bag filled with toys, supplies for oral hygiene, and a spring-loaded trap for capturing tooth fairies. Summit Dental Center's professionals even spoke to reporters at Fox 26 News about different ways to help kids keep their teeth healthy during the school year.
Harmony Dental's Dr. Thao Vo specializes in orthodontics and affixes traditional metal or ClearCorrect braces to make teeth line up straight and uniformly, just like a librarian shelving books on dentistry. He also performs other oral treatments, including tooth extractions and whitening treatments, as well as dental checkups. Comfort is of utmost importance in Harmony Dental's office, and Dr. Vo offers custom fitted mouth guards and sedation via nitrous oxide or personalized lullaby.
Dr. Mike Kesner has always had a knack for working with his hands. As a boy, he constantly built model vehicles. In college, his plans to become a medical doctor shifted to dentistry because it held more opportunity for the hands-on manipulation of small instruments and precision parts. In 1984, he established Made Ya Smile Dental, a place where he carefully extracts wisdom teeth, fills in spaces between teeth, and installs implants into the jawbone to replace a missing tooth. He also specializes in Lumineers, and his practice?s ten locations together make up one of biggest Lumineers providers in the country.
Although he and his team of dentists work in separate locations, each of their offices share a similar design and set of amenities. Visitors at any of the ten locations marvel at the reception areas? coffeehouse ambiance as they sit at a caf? table, sip coffee, and work on the movie script for Vampires vs. Martians: The Reddest Dawn. In the treatment rooms, patients drift off while listening to music on the provided headphones. Anxious patients relax with nitrous oxide or the sounds of the rainforest simulated by the staff.
Board-certified orthodontist Vijay Bhagia has built a practice at Space Center Orthodontics that harnesses the latest digital technologies to correct patients' smiles. He uses cone-beam 3-D diagnostic imaging to capture detailed panoramic views of oral anatomy, such as bones, airways and sinuses, and rows of extra shark teeth. Once the terrain has been mapped out, the doctor helps to straighten misalignments in teeth and jaws. He and his staff fit adults or children with corrective equipment such as metal or clear braces, Invisalign aligners, and TMJ mouth guards.
The practice also puts an emphasis on patient comfort and enjoyment by outfitting the office with a slew of amenities. Its waiting room entertains patients in line for the dental chair with both Wii and PlayStation systems along with children's movies and fly-through visits by balloon geese. The office staff sews delight into mature crowds with a selection of intriguing books, news and entertainment magazines, and in-house ice cream to calm sweet-tooth cravings.
