Prior to perfecting smiles at Brookhaven Family Dentistry––a division of the Centre for Family Dentistry––resident dentist Dr. Dinesh S. Tewari put a BS, MS, and PhD into practice as a published biochemical researcher before graduating from the Temple University DMD program. Now, alongside Dr. Euree Choi, DMD, who helps to helm Drexel Hill Family Dentistry, Dr. Tewari uses the latest smile-taming technology to protect and enhance teeth at four Delaware County locations. Clear, removable Invisalign aligners help to put errant teeth back in line sans braces, and Lumineers porcelain veneers help to mask stained, cracked, or chipped teeth beneath a pearly-white façade that is as thin as a contact lens and twice as easy to floss. Other services include root canals, bone grafting, and regular checkups, which help to keep mouths at the pinnacle of health with careful oral-cancer screenings and a thorough examination of gums, teeth, and joints.
Invisalign straightens crooked chompers through a combination of highly advanced, 3-D computer graphics and the spells of good old-fashioned orthodontia. Orthodontists specially trained and certified in the Invisalign process eschew cumbersome braces for clear, removable aligners that are virtually invisible to the unclothed eye. An initial exam, including x-rays and photos ($325), will pave the way for a flurry of calibrated teeth sheaths that are designed to slowly shift your walnut crackers into perfect alignment. The total cost of an Invisalign treatment varies with each customer (it can run anywhere from $2,000 to $8,000); this Groupon gets you $1,000 to put toward that final cost.

As a physical therapist with his own private practice, Hand & Stone founder and chief operating officer John Marco made sure that he kept abreast of the rapidly growing health and wellness industry. After a period of careful research and planning, John decided to create a spa based around convenience and affordability—Hand & Stone Massage and Facial Spa.
Since its launch, Hand & Stone has expanded to more than 20 states and four planets. The spa’s core concept is to offer massage, facial, and waxing services performed by licensed, certified, or registered professionals and offered at convenient times, seven days a week. Each location adheres to a traditional spa aesthetic with soft lighting, heated treatment tables, and plush linens.
With more than 30 years of experience, Dr. Stephen Gershberg of The Art of Dentistry has just about seen it all: chipped teeth, uneven smiles, and cavities so big they owned their own water pick. This experience allows him to help patients with virtually any dental situation, from routine checkups to advanced cosmetic and restorative procedures. He whitens yellow or stained teeth, repairs damaged teeth with porcelain crowns, and replaces missing teeth with dental implants. For those with crooked smiles, he offers subtle, nearly imperceptible, Invisalign aligners. But before performing any of these services, Dr. Gershberg conducts a thorough consultation, discussing everything from dental health and sleep issues to jaw pain resulting from a steady diet of Sour Patch Kids.
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.
At Aesthetic & Special Care Associates, doctors Keith Nguyen and Jeffrey F. Rutledge prod at plaque buildup to leave mouth pearls polished and healthy. During an initial exam, one of the dental docs will visually assess choppers' vital signs, checking for evidence of periodontal disease, decay, or hidden wiretaps and recommending a proper course of treatment for alleviating any anomalies. Bitewing x-rays allow the cuspid custodian to delve deeper into each tooth's inner workings, utilizing digital radiology to limit exposure to potentially harmful radiation. The one-hour treatment is then capped with a meticulous molar cleaning, which diligently purges each meat masher of plaque and buildup—a process designed to leave patients with the shining grin of an open-mouthed walk through an automated car wash, but with less exposure on the local news.
