EZ Smile's trio of dentists team up to fight tooth decay and gum disease in all their guises. In their cozy office replete with dark wood floors and plenty of natural light, they accomplish treatments such as fillings, extractions, and gum-disease laser therapy with a gentle approach. Besides lasers, they employ other effective tech such as the VELscope, which easily detects early signs of oral cancer. Through use of the latest technology and techniques, they enhance patient comfort and execute procedures with greater precision. As patient comfort is paramount, they adhere to strict sterilization standards and comply with all CDC guidelines. They also ensure relaxed visits with sedation dentistry, allowing anxious patients respite from their worries with nitrous oxide.
On his website, Dr. Gary Arabatyan compares his dental practice to artistry. “I view my patient’s smile as my canvas,” he says, a paint-splattered toothbrush in his hand. Using his years of experience, Dr. Arabatyan transforms grins into visual masterpieces by cleaning mouths, whitening teeth, and replacing chipped enamel with ceramic fronts, crafted in-house. The artistic attention to detail also extends to the practice’s furnishings. Guests can dreamily gaze into a saltwater fish tank and enjoy DVDs in each treatment room.
Sonoma Smile's at-home kit utilizes advanced whitening technology to gently coax masticators to the next level of eye-blinding brightness. Unlike their weak, ill-fitting drugstore counterparts, these whitening trays surround each tooth like a snake squeezes a stress ball. Dr. Wayne Sutton's office takes custom molds for each patient, ensuring the trays conform to each individual tooth, molar, and fang. After the quick fitting, patients receive trays in about a week, along with a supply of professional-grade whitening gel that restores teeth to porcelain radiance within 14 days by repelling the espresso-loving gum gremlins that cause tooth discoloration.
The folks at Children's Choice Pediatric Dental Care do their darnedest to make sure kids actually look forward to going to the dentist. In a waiting area adorned with brightly colored murals, kids can play video games, watch movies, or entertain younger siblings by staging a healthcare debate in the toddler play area. Each treatment chair is equipped with a video screen to keep youngsters entertained and relaxed during meticulous cleanings and exams. Dr. Jeffrey Saladin and his team of caring professionals place an emphasis on gaining patients’ trust and teaching them the importance of prevention and proper home care, ensuring the health of their teeth and gums for years to come.
After tanning the San Francisco 49er Gold Rush cheerleaders, Miss California, and international bodybuilders, Kelly Richardson has expanded her sunless-bronzing enterprise beyond her original location in wine country. Today, Richardson runs two salons as well as her own tanning product line, B.Bronz, which has graced the glossy pages of beauty magazines and the glossy models of New York City’s fashion week. In the 15-minute Gold Rush tan, master airbrushers contour and highlight curves, erase tan lines, and reveal deposits of valuable ore buried just beneath the skin. Sonoma Tanning also oversees Da Vinci whitening treatments, which untarnish teeth with an organic formula clients apply in-store and activate with the salon’s bleaching light.
If someone in the Santa Rosa area has nice, straight teeth, there's a good chance they've met the board-certified orthodontists at Bales Orthodontics. Since 1976, Dr. Thomas R Bales has refined the smiles of more than 15,000 patients. Today, he and his daughter, board-certified orthodontist Dr. Kathleen M. Bales, continue to customize orthodontic treatments for adults and children.
At Bales Orthodontics, Drs. Tom and Katie, as their patients know them, apply a number of techniques to nudge teeth into healthier positions. They expertly apply traditional braces and wires—a tried-and-true choice for kids and teenagers. But they also offer Lingual braces, which are hidden behind the teeth, as well as discreet clear braces, which blend with the natural tooth color. Drs. Tom and Katie are also Elite providers of Invisalign treatments, which straighten teeth invisibly with a series of clear, removable aligners.
