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 the number one Lumineers provider in the world.
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.
Floss Dental's dentists and surgeons, many of whom are often featured on local TV stations, may specialize in preventative care, but they also beautify mouths with cosmetic- and reconstructive-surgery services, such as veneers, Invisalign, and dental implants. They harness panoramic x-rays to get a complete view of the teeth, and they broadcast these pictures on a TV, which helps them explain which treatments are necessary and to point out which tooth would look best with an inlaid diamond chip.
Floss Dental encourages patients to keep coming back by offering free Invisalign consultations and free Boost whitening once a year to those who maintain their regular cleanings. Flat-screen TVs and satellite radio entertain patients during their procedures, and sedation dentistry keeps them free from anxiety in a dream-like state.
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.
During the appointment, ClearChoice Orthodontic's doctors and staff perform a dental examination before making precise molds of clients' mouths to foster at-home whitening. The tray, which is ready for pickup within four to five days of the impression, is worn a few hours each night, snuggling up to patient’s fangs so the professional-strength Ultra Radiance bleach can blanch bicuspids and ivory-ize incisors. Results vary according to age and habits, however people have been known to see teeth brighten one to four shades. The amount of Ultra Radiance bleach included in the deal should last around two weeks, though an additional container of solution can be purchased from ClearChoice for $30.
Dr. David Chiu and his team of smile renovators at Anchor Dental keep mouths neat and tidy with a suite of dental procedures. In the comprehensive exam, hygienists give pearly whites a once-over, sleuthing for plaque-ridden molars, camouflaged cavities, and any signs of oral cancer. Next, a cleaning attacks tartar and squatting bands of Sour Patch Kids. A full-mouth x-ray searches for hidden decay and mislaid wisdom teeth and a periodontal health screening checks teeth’s gummy garden beds for signs of gingivitis. Groupon patients with gum problems also receive a 50% discount on a full periodontal cleaning, including scaling and root planing.
Five dentists work together to improve oral health at Just Dental, which is open on weekends at their Katy location. Dr. Pam Wang, a general dentist interested in orthodontics, oversees general-dentistry services with Dr. Joyce Le, including checkups and cleanings; periodontist Dr. Miles Mason takes care of procedures such as bone and gum grafting and implant placement; Dr. Rosie Tran is the practices kid's dentist; and general dentist Dr. Kim Le rounds out the staff. Helping matters, the dentists have access to digital x-ray machines, intraoral cameras, and other high-tech dental tools that will impress your tooth fairy. In an effort to ensure that the quality of care here remains high, the practice's website has an online survey for patients.
