American Dental Care's Dr. Amish P. Patel has dentistry in his blood. His father and brother are both dentists, and Dr. Patel has worked in dental labs for much of his life. This early exposure to dentistry laid the foundation for his formal training at Temple University where he learned many of the advanced techniques and treatments he administers today, such as tooth-colored fillings, Invisalign braces, and customized teeth-whitening.
Doctor of Chiropractic Martin S. Gildea operates under the position that the body is its own best doctor. Central to the self-healing properties of the body is the spinal cord, which often gets impinged by slipped disks or aggressive puppeteers. Dr. Gildea administers adjustments and other noninvasive techniques to ease individual columns of the spine back into place, taking pressure off pinched nerves and allowing the brain and body to resume smooth communication.
Dr. Steven W. Haywood?s proficiency at transforming smiles earned him a spot on ABC2?s Extreme Makeover Special, and his staff strives to recreate the calming atmosphere of a spa in their office. In cosmetic dentistry treatments, Dr. Haywood fills gaps between teeth with porcelain veneers and straightens smiles with Invisalign and orthodontia. Lasers whiten teeth in fewer than two hours or help the doctor sniff out cavities without calling in a specialized bloodhound to follow the scent of decay through your mouth. An intraoral video camera sends mouth-views to a TV screen, letting both doctor and patient share the same view of each tooth.
When Dr. Anthony Skiadas began treating patients, he found that despite their differing oral-health problems, they all had one thing in common—a desire for convenient care. His patients were sick of finding a specialist they thought could treat their maladies, only to be told they'd have to see yet another doctor in another location. So Dr. Skiadas established Smilebuilderz, a practice with more than 250 professionals working under one roof, all with the goal of giving patients a clean bill of oral health and a beautiful smile.
To make dental care even more convenient, he and his staff created the Smilebuilderz discount dental plan, which gives members between 20% and 50% off services such as implants, veneers, braces, and whitening, as well as unlimited complimentary exams and x-rays. They also offer massaging dental chairs, pillows, and blankets, making visiting the dentist more relaxing than being rocked to sleep by Betty White.
Dr. Daniel C. West presides over New Holland Dental Care, where he applies his more than 30 years of dental expertise. Throughout his career, Dr. West has kept his office up to date on modern dental tools. Digital x-rays reduce the radiation of traditional x-rays by up to 90%, and CEREC technology creates customized crowns in one day. IV sedation or nitrous oxide allows patients to snooze through procedures or simply beat pretreatment jitters.
Drs. Philip Qi, Vikash Patel, and Kuljeet Bhangra work alongside a staff of specialists—including a periodontist and an oral and maxillofacial surgeon—at three dental locations. The dentists strengthen their abilities by routinely participating in advanced training in cosmetic, restorative, implant, and sedation dentistry. Whether a patient needs a routine checkup, a dental implant, a smile makeover, or an Invisalign consultation, they can take advantage of appointments in the early morning or late evening, on weekends, or on James Buchanan’s half birthday.
