Born and raised in Holladay, Dr. Andrew Ericksen knows his neighbors better than most people, especially since he has unparalleled access to the tiny family trees etched in each person’s teeth. To ensure the most effective treatment, he uses the latest technology, such as rotary endodontics, which employs electrical handpieces to quickly and gently perform root canals. He x-rays mouths with digital equipment, reducing radiation exposure, and wields intraoral cameras to capture thorough views of mouths. To ease anxiety, he offers sedation, enabling even the most apprehensive patient to relax.
Husband-wife team Dr. Stan Presley and Dr. Jaimee Morgan have a combined 53 years of experience tending to patients’ teeth. Their expertise ranges from routine checkups to custom veneers and dental implants. Both have authored articles on cosmetic dentistry, and Dr. Morgan travels the world while giving lectures on such topics as tooth whitening and orthodontics.
Dr. Burns and Dr. Jenkins have DDS degrees from the Temple University Kornberg School of Dentistry and the Indiana University School of Dentistry, respectively, and they put that professional training to use at Platinum Dental Care. The doctors work tirelessly to keep up with changes in dental medicine, adopting new techniques and technologies—such as implants—as they develop. While both practitioners promote oral health with a variety of cosmetic and rehabilitative dental procedures including teeth whitening, veneers, and fillings, Dr. Burns focuses on saving teeth through full-mouth rehabilitation and by depositing extra teeth into a piggy bank. Dr. Burns also has a degree in psychology, which helps him empathize with patients and mitigate their concern over dental care.
Within the modern, inviting quarters of 39th Street Dental, Dr. Darren Cole keeps teeth in mint condition with services that range from routine cleanings to root canals. Patrons may also opt for cosmetic procedures, such as porcelain veneers or teeth-whitening treatments that remove both natural stains and tetracycline discoloration.
After completing his degree in dentistry, Dr. Daniel West stepped up his game by signing on for an additional 100-plus hours of continuing education, including a residency in dental implants. This expertise comes in handy on a daily basis at his practice, where Dr. West crafts porcelain crowns and veneers in minutes using a special CEREC machine. The doctor also uses technology for preventive care, including an intraoral camera to get a close-up of chompers and digital x-rays to check teeth’s inner chambers for squatting cavities.
General dentist Dr. Randy Roberts and his team gussy up grins with treatments lavished on chompers at their modern, glass-walled office. Chair-nestled patients open up during free consultations—conducted in English or Spanish—during which Dr. Roberts reads each tooth's star chart. Dr. Roberts belongs to both the national and state dental associations, and is certified in Invisalign, ClearCorrect, treatment planning, implant placement, and bone grafting.
