For 30 years, Dr. Harper and Dr. Gilmore have worked to fix up the smiles of their patients at their University Heights family dental practice. They skillfully perform basic cleanings and exams as well as more complex procedures, such as root canals.
The checklist for pre-surgery sanitation at Premier Dental is meticulously scrutinized all the way down to the operatory water. A high-tech filtration system courses water through two filters to remove chemicals and particulates before an ultraviolet light disintegrates any lingering bacteria. To match, the tools are scoured by a high-tech sterilization system that surpasses OSHA requirements.
This highly detailed process represents Premier Dental’s head dentist, self-proclaimed perfectionist Dr. Rita Kutsikovich. Earning diplomate status through the International Congress of Oral Implantologists, Dr. Kutsikovich has the credentials and continuing education to support her passion for dentistry. Her specialty services include dental implants, crowns, bridges, and sedation dentistry, which can help patients to feel less anxious about procedures and make teeth sit still. She also performs general exams, cleans teeth, and seals them.

The Center for Advanced Dentistry's experienced staff makes clients feel at home in the office before making itself feel at home in their mouths.

As she plunked accounting formulas into a calculator during another long night of studying, college student Lisa Browning found herself drifting into daydreams about the day she changed someone's life. At the dental practice where she worked part-time, a woman in her mid forties had recently arrived with a mouth filled with dentures. Having worked her way up from receptionist to de facto dental assistant, Browning helped install implants and restore both dental arches with fixed bridgework. At the post op appointment, Browning saw a complete change in the patient—hair done, makeup on, fashionably dressed, and radiating with confidence—all thanks to a new smile. Browning tried, and failed, to derive a similar sense of satisfaction from the dry formulas before her on the textbook page. Browning soon scrapped accounting, telling her calculator "it's not you, it's me," and enrolling at the Case Western Reserve University School of Dental Medicine. Today, her expertise in general and restorative dentistry—as well as cosmetic treatments—has earned her recurring appearances in the Guide to America's Top Dentists. She is also a member of the Academy of General Dentistry, whose members undergo continual education each year beyond the requirements mandated by state dental boards or federal anti-frowning regulations.
