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.
While the staffers at Summit Dental Center treat patients of all ages, they go the extra mile to give kids a reason to look forward to their dental visits. A play area entertains young patients before their turn in the dental chair. After a routine checkup, cavity filling, or orthodontic session, they leave the office with a gift bag filled with toys, supplies for oral hygiene, and a spring-loaded trap for capturing tooth fairies. Summit Dental Center's professionals even spoke to reporters at Fox 26 News about different ways to help kids keep their teeth healthy during the school year.
Westwood Dental is a network of five Houston-area dental offices, each one home to highly experienced dentists skilled in a broad spectrum of specialties to ensure patients can turn to a single clinic for all of their mouth’s needs. Services range from simple preventative checkups to oral surgery to pulling out extra teeth so you have a safe spot to store your gummi bears.
The doctors at Spectrum Dental Group each bring their own specialties to the clinic, which has been in operation for more than a quarter of a century. The range of services include family and cosmetic dentistry, oral surgery, and orthodontics. The supporting staff works to welcome any new clients into the practice by helping patrons complete paperwork and the necessary licenses to smile on television.
Board-certified orthodontist Vijay Bhagia has built a practice at Space Center Orthodontics that harnesses the latest digital technologies to correct patients' smiles. He uses cone-beam 3-D diagnostic imaging to capture detailed panoramic views of oral anatomy, such as bones, airways and sinuses, and rows of extra shark teeth. Once the terrain has been mapped out, the doctor helps to straighten misalignments in teeth and jaws. He and his staff fit adults or children with corrective equipment such as metal or clear braces, Invisalign aligners, and TMJ mouth guards.
The practice also puts an emphasis on patient comfort and enjoyment by outfitting the office with a slew of amenities. Its waiting room entertains patients in line for the dental chair with both Wii and PlayStation systems along with children's movies and fly-through visits by balloon geese. The office staff sews delight into mature crowds with a selection of intriguing books, news and entertainment magazines, and in-house ice cream to calm sweet-tooth cravings.
