For more than 35 years, dentists at American Dental Centers have polished pearly whites and prevented dental disease with thorough exams. At each of the 14 locations that dot Northern and Central Ohio, patients walk in or schedule appointments so they don’t have to scrape off plaque using chew toys. The center maintains a 24-hour phone line so that patients can arrange to have emergencies treated as soon as possible, and it also offers a Forever White program, in which patients pay a one-time fee and then receive take-home bleaching treatments for as long as they attend their regular three- or six-month check-ups.
At Preferred Dental Spa, tooth whisperers apply a specialty Zoom! gel onto chompers, which then bathe in focused, intense light in three 15-minute cycles. The 45-minute service causes minimal discomfort, if any, and brightens teeth up to eight shades more efficiently than holding a flashlight between teeth. Zoom! reports that with careful upkeep, results can last for years.
With hundreds of locations across the country, Right Dental Group represents a collection of oral-healthcare professionals who deliver a variety of quality dental services. The collective places an emphasis on relationship building—meaning patients can confess their most egregious toffee-apple trespasses while receiving a teeth scrubbing delivered with precision and understanding. Each of the dentists is prescreened for a consistent record of excellence and the ability to efficiently locate a cavity in a toothstack. A skilled doctor and staff will skillfully probe forgotten mouth corners, eradicating tartar and expunging plaque from bacterial lairs. The included x-rays will help uncover any oral problem areas that cannot be seen with the shamelessly naked eye. After treatment, clients will be privy to tips that explain the proper brushing and flossing techniques to ward off gum disease and tooth loss, ensuring tongue-stoppers remain firmly rooted to the rest of the skeletal system.
When it comes to teeth, Dr. Jeff Kover’s training in classical sculpture and architecture has taught him to consider aesthetic matters, such as symmetry, proximity, and color. He puts these skills to use when crafting custom implants, bridges, and veneers for each of his patient’s unique teeth shapes and shades.
An artist is only as good as his equipment, so Dr. Kover outfits his office with up-to-date technology. Electric hand pieces whir to life and quickly disband plaque, ultraviolet light reveals cancerous tissue during oral-cancer screenings, and digital x-rays eschew higher levels of radiation than those emitted by traditional x-rays or sticking one’s head in the microwave. To keep patients safe from cross contamination, Dr. Kover keeps the office at a level of cleanliness that exceeds the requirements set by OSHA and the Center for Disease Control.
