Dr. Randall and his staff at Quarry Bend Dental help teeth and gums to health. Before the roughly 80-minute dental exam, Dr. Randall snaps a series of 18 bitewing x-rays and scans soft tissues and gums for potentially cancerous lesions; he'll also gladly consult with any patients interested in cosmetic improvements or sharper tusks. A basic cleaning scours teeth's nooks and crannies, banishing loitering debris from its molar lodgings. At the end of the treatment, the staff hands patients a warm towel to daub their mouths or tie on as a cape to mark a transformation into the Oral Health Avenger.
Alpenglow Dental's team of five practitioners—all Utah natives—track down the latest research and employ modern technology to maintain oral health at four local practices. Their spectrum of services encompasses many mouth-based needs, whether patients seek a regular cleaning or need veneers to conceal misaligned teeth. ClearCorrect invisible braces use removable aligners instead of metal wires for straighter smiles and more intimidating growls. The dentists are also able to lift stains from age, coffee consumption, and smoking with whitening treatments.
Smith Family Dental's Drs. Steven and Morgan Smith have designed their office to keep patients as comfortable as possible—both during and after appointments. Once in the chair, patients can don pairs of Bose surround-sound headphones and watch movies or shows playing on the ceiling-mounted TVs. Nitrous oxide soothes patients before treatments, especially when it's coupled with one of the office's blankets, pillows. After root canals or fillings, the team can use OraVerse reverse anesthetic, which helps restore feeling to the lips and gums.
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.
It says something that pageant queens of the likes of Ms. Utah and Miss Park City Continental trust their skin to the beauty experts at The Spa Dr. The staff’s treatments help make faces stage-ready by zapping unwanted body hair and coaxing away wrinkles. One of its tools is a super-diode laser, which thins out unwanted hair and produces minimal heat while mitigating redness on irritated skin. Services also include chemical peels and injectables, which serve to fight off the signs of aging without making the client go under the knife or halt the earth’s orbit around the sun.
