Dr. Mike Franklin didn?t always see himself as a dentist; in fact, he worked for seven years in corporate America before deciding that helping others was his true calling. He decided to study dentistry, a choice that would lead him to open Vivid Smile Dental Center in 2011. Dr. Franklin and associates perform a full slate of preventive, surgical, and cosmetic procedures, including routine cleanings and checkups, x-rays, root canals, dental implants, crowns, and teeth whitening.
Led by the experienced Dr. Freemont, Freemont Dental & Orthodontic Care's sparkling staff specialists maintain patients' smiles with a full lineup of routine and reparative procedures. The approximately one-hour appointment begins with a complete census of the teeth and gums, wherein a technician searches for signs of excessive wear, oral disease, or counterfeit teeth made from Chiclets. The patient's pearlies then receive a comprehensive scraping and scrubbing, which helps remove buildup of plaque and tartar and polish the toothy surfaces to a mirror-like sheen. Finally, a series of x-rays reveals the hidden history of teeth, helping to ensure that they are sturdy enough to withstand everyday rigors, such as gnawing on a desk chair until it fits in the broom closet.
A fleet of dentists and oral surgeons at various dental offices have banded together with one aim: to keep Georgians' smiles as bright and healthy as possible. Managed by the same business, each Dental Practice Group of Atlanta office has its own name and staff. Patients at each location recline in comfy chairs as licensed dentists and experienced technicians remove excess plaque, inspect gums for signs of disease, and x-ray chompers for cavities. Available at every office, Venus White teeth-whitening treatments improve upon pearly whites' luminescence and ability to serve as a projection surface for miniature film festivals.
Imagix Dental & Orthodontics' team of smile shiners leaves gleaming grins in its wake at offices stationed across the Atlanta area. To begin whitening sessions, clinicians paint pearlies with a special light-activated gel, then switch on the Zoom! light to activate stain-lifting action that erases discoloration from coffee drinking, cigar smoking, and oil swigging. Lips and gums are shielded so that only enamel whitens as clients listen to music or relax in chairs. The sessions last about an hour, after which chompers emerge an average of eight shades lighter, and offer a quicker alternative for brightening smiles than outfitting mouths with solar panels.
Not everyone can say an Emmy-nominated celebrity stylist does their hair, but the clients of Charles Gregory do. Charles was recognized as head of the hair department on HBO's Emmy-nominated original film Lackawanna Blues, a position he has also held on numerous Tyler Perry films. With such commercial success, it’s not surprising that celebrities such as Halle Berry, Queen Latifah, and Raven-Symoné have also flocked to his talents.
Today, after years spent teaching, medal-winning, makeup-academy-founding, and star-styling, Charles pilots his own salon’s team, which includes hairstylists, a massage therapist, and aestheticians that provide facials, microdermabrasion, waxing, and makeup application. In addition to cutting and coloring, the salon’s stylists can also apply extensions and weaves made from real human hair.
Representing the third generation in a local family of dentists, Dr. Cary Goldstein opened his eponymous dental clinic in 1995 to culminate what is now 75 years of dental care under the Goldstein name. Dr. Goldstein and his team of dentists and hygienists address a full spectrum of tooth-related complaints, brushing and flossing patients' mouths free of tartar and tartar sauce during cleanings, keeping smiles pearly with a variety of over-the-counter or in-office whitening treatments, or restoring order to undulating toothscapes with clear braces and dental implants. He also ensures new patients receive thorough initial exams and x-rays, allowing him to keep tabs on their dental improvement over subsequent visits.
