Specializing in family, cosmetic, and orthodontic dental care, Bright Side's dozen dentists and seven hygienists treat the tusks of both mature mouths and nervous children alike. Each dentist begins by examining their patients' mouth for any obvious abnormalities, such as extra tongues and molar fires. Next, a series of x-rays delves deeper to expose any cavities, tumors, gum infections. Finally, a meticulous cleaning gives the heave-ho to any tartar and plaque buildup, clearing the way for future generations of inevitable meal remnants. After the last brush stroke is struck, you'll leave Bright Side Dental with a smile bright enough to melt hearts, including your own, so be careful around mirrors.
While others grow up wanting to be astronauts and firefighters, Dr. Winter dreamed of the dental arts. After he graduated summa cum laude from Eastern Michigan University, Winter encountered a strong gust of wind that filled his graduation gown and carried him just a few miles down the road to the prestigious University of Michigan dental school, where he continued his studies.
Dental technology has advanced quite a bit in the more than 25 years since Dr. Winter began practicing, but he and his staff at Progressive Dental Professionals pride themselves on staying abreast of the changes. Among the many services and amenities they offer today are realistic Lumineers, single-visit teeth-whitening treatments, and flat-screen TVs.
Unlike the sun, who can't be bothered to give up his beauty sleep, Birmingham Tan keeps bronzing bodies till 9 p.m. on weekdays and offers convenient weekend hours to suit busy schedules. Staffed by a team of knowledgeable tanning experts, the salon maintains a fleet of Puretan and Suncapsule tanning equipment that baste pale skin with five varying levels of hue-shifting rays. Those hoping to avoid the synthetic beams can opt for a UV-free Mystic Tan session, which includes a brief instruction video that shows first timers how to operate the booth or use it as an emergency floatation device.
Dr. Spencer, who has more than 30 years of smile-enhancing experience, polishes mouth bones and routes out dental troubles using state-of-the-art equipment and sincerely friendly hospitality. His skilled team operates in a bright, naturalistic facility with cherry wood, arched ceilings, and plenty of natural light. A dental exam and cleaning thoroughly removes plaque from the teeth and gum line while checking the whole hole for signs of oral cancer, gingivitis, and hamburger ghosts. X-rays ensure that teeth and jaws remain amiably (if argumentatively) cohabiting your head.
To Dr. Daniel Mashni and his team, patients' comfort is just as important as their oral health. That's why they stock the office with the latest ease-enhancing advancements in dental technology?including digital x-ray scanners and a sterilization system that provides distilled, crystal-clear water for every appointment?and by thoroughly explaining all of the available options to their clients. The specialists might recommend general, cosmetic, or restorative dental care, although every service shares the common goal of leaving teeth healthy and sparkling. Veneers, implants, and crowns can all help seal gaps or conceal signs of damage, and Invisalign treatments even out teeth without the use of metal braces. The practice also offers in-office as well as at-home whitening procedures, which leave smiles as stain-free as the apron of the inventor of invisible ink.
Dr. Timothy Kosinski of SmileCreator has placed over 7,000 dental implants throughout his career. When he isn't crafting dentures, treating gums, or replacing fangs with tusks, he works as an adjunct assistant professor at a university. Because of his achievements in his field, he won the Lifelong Learning and Service Recognition award from the Academy of General Dentistry in 2009. In addition to contributing to two textbooks, he has published more than 80 articles on implant dentistry and has written an unpublished collection of dental-themed haikus. Although Dr. Kosinski offers more routine preventive care, he mostly performs full-mouth reconstruction and cosmetic dentistry, and so, in order to help patients relax during these services, he can use both intravenous and oral sedation. Treatment rooms help patients unwind without sedation with TVs, individual headphones, DVDs, and computer equipment.
