Protecting smiles is a time-honored practice. However, Dr. Heather Stamm and Dr. Kai Kawasugi take a modern approach to this practice by embracing cutting-edge technologies whenever possible. The dentists and their staff are capable of providing general as well as cosmetic care, either catching troublesome conditions early and preventing them from becoming larger issues or correcting existing signs of damage, all with the use of modern dental technology. The E4D system, for example, creates custom-fit crowns, inlays, overlays, and veneers on the same day as the patient's initial visit. Medical-grade lasers can whiten teeth or remove cavities. Additionally, Dr. Stramm and Dr. Kawasugi can use tiny cameras to show patients the insides of their mouths or the interior of a tube of toothpaste. Although these options only represent a handful of the services available at Stamm Dental, the doctors always maintain their commitment to use advanced technology and compassionate care to make patients feel as comfortable as possible.
Dr. Andrew Hall's love of tending to teeth has led him across the country and the globe. After returning from a deployment in Iraq, where he provided dental services for nearly 2,500 soldiers and civilians, he set out again, this time for training at the Las Vegas Institute for Advanced Dental Studies, which specializes in neuromuscular and cosmetic dentistry. Today, he couples his advanced experience with advanced dental technology such as Cerec 3-D imaging, which helps him to create precise-fitting crowns in around an hour and negates the need to implant temporary crowns or tiny, tooth-colored construction cones. His office also caters to nervous patients with the use of NuCalm, a natural relaxation aid that joins forces with soothing music to bring bodies to a presleep-like state of calm.
For more than 17 years, Dr. Gunjan Kalra and her staff have scoured mouthy serrations to fend off periodontal disease while empowering clients to make educated dental decisions. Each cleaning begins with an exam, wherein Dr. Kalra explores ivories in search of tooth decay and gum disease. Next, digital x-rays⎯which boast an 80% reduction in radiation when compared to traditional x-rays⎯instantaneously photograph mouths, allowing Dr. Kalra to zoom in on a single tooth while rotating and sharpening the image, all before the patient's eyes. Lastly, hygienists scrub tusks to remove plaque, tartar, and hidden colonies of dried oregano. Should specialists discover any gum disease, additional treatments beyond a regular cleaning may be required.

From the four years he spent with the US military in Vietnam to the numerous charities––including Halloween Candy Buy Back and Operation Gratitude––he supports through his dental office, All Family Dentistry, his service is apparent. He even gives his time as a professor at the University of Colorado, teaching soon-to-be dentists the techniques of modern dentistry and the tricks to changing a tire using only rubber bands meant for braces.

Advanced laser technology from Diagnodent helps promote safer dental procedures along with intraoral cameras, ultrasonic cleanings, and nitrous-oxide sedation.
