Dr. Ufberg and his friendly staff at Ufberg Dental cultivate friendships with their clients, who relax with entertaining amenities while their teeth undergo professional sprucing. During the dental package's 90-minute roster of treatments, guests recline atop TempurPedic cushions with a client-chosen movie while a camera projects up-close chomper shots onto a viewing monitor. The scrutinizing session is followed by the handheld ViziLite cancer screener, which sheds light on any problem areas with a pen-size lamp. To express teeth's poetic inner thoughts and track cavities, a quartet of digital x-rays snaps interior shots of maws, and a fresh coat of fluoride fortifies enamel strength. Smiles finish up by previewing a simulated portrait of what they'd look like with veneers, allowing them to try on a new identity without the hassle of tooth toupees. For those opting for the two-hour Zoom! treatment, a stain-blasting lamp illuminates teeth to make chompers up to eight shades whiter.
Plush gray couches and contemporary black tables induce states of calm inside the Philadelphia Institute of Cosmetic Surgery's waiting room. The corridors and reception area inside the beauty-bolstering office eschew the clinical appearance of traditional medical facilities for more a home-like décor, such as warmly lit floor lamps, paneled curtains, and porcelain figurines enveloped in snuggies. In the experienced hands of the office's highly trained staff, led by founder and medical director Dr. Zaki Ftaiha, a slew of surgical and nonsurgical cosmetic services, such as Botox, implants, and microdermabrasion, smoothes and reshapes corporeal housings. Philadelphia Institute of Cosmetic Surgery's standards for patient care and treatment match the goals set by hospitals, earning the office accreditation from the Pennsylvania Department of Health.
Invisalign premier provider Dr. Catherine M. Foote crafts stunning smiles on faces of all ages with personalized Invisalign and Invisalign Teen treatments that earned her a top orthodontist award in 2010 from Philadelphia Magazine. During the first visit, expert technicians snap shots of preening teeth with 3-D photo technology and take digital x-rays to check for stowaway plaque. Dr. Foote scrutinizes images to determine whether Invisalign is right for the patient and creates a customized treatment plan to address specific oral issues. Invisalign manufacturers use the 3-D imaging and molded impressions of teeth to craft a series of clear, calibrated, and removable aligners that cradle teeth for two weeks, comfortably and subtly correcting crooked bites. Over 9–24 months of treatment, patients receive a new set of aligners every two weeks until teeth have reached their desired location, such as a vacation house in Acapulco.
In 1996, Drs. Grace Liu and Lewis Yu graduated from dental school and embarked on furthering their education: she completed postgraduate work at Columbia University and he trained in oral surgery at the University of Pennsylvania's hospital. After amassing a wealth of knowledge and experience, the pair married and started All About Smiles.
Their newly renovated ultra-modern clinic boasts cutting-edge technology such as intra-oral cameras, a VELScope for oral-cancer screenings, and sleep apnea screening equipment. With assistance from their friendly and highly-trained staff, the dental duo help clients care for their smiles with a wide range of treatments, ranging from basic cleanings and orthodontic care to oral surgeries and installations of crowns, veneers, bridges, and neuromuscular dentistry.
Established more than 45 years ago, the teeth technicians at Kirkwood Dental Associates seek to listen, educate, and provide comprehensive dental care for patients in a personalized and professional manner. Their practice includes five dentists with more than 100 years of collective experience in eradicating incisor imperfections and capsizing cavities. Visit either of the two locations for all-important dental services. Enjoy the refreshment of a cleaning, including dental exam and bite-wing x-rays that will reveal the hidden treasure map tattooed on the crown of your left maxillary first molar. Alternately, teeth-whitening services begin by having custom trays fitted to in-office teeth. They'll be ready around a week later, along with a take-home bleaching kit sure to expunge coffee stains and freshly spilled tar from dainty dentition.
