At Worthy Dental, Dr. Justin Jones has corralled a team of dental assistants and hygienists who fight tooth decay while keeping patient comfort at the forefront of every preventive, restorative, and cosmetic procedure. Whether they're restoring smiles with implants, veneers, or in-office whitening treatments, Dr. Jones and his assistant Michele consult closely with patients to ensure they're feeling as comfortable as possible, going so far as to coo sweet lullabies or scat in whalesong if that's what it takes to keep nerves at ease. Resident hygienist Janet, meanwhile, handles all teeth-cleaning operations with computer-like precision, educating patients on proper dental hygiene as she scours her way from tooth to tooth to quickly eliminate dislodged plaque and yesterday's foodstuffs. Finally, receptionist Kathleen completes the cavity-fighting foursome, taking up post at the front desk to welcome visitors with a smile and help to create custom financial plans that fit their needs.
Led by the talents of Dr. Braasch and crew, Braasch Dentistry provides a full array of dental services to keep teeth in fine health, all in a chic, modern office environment. When enamel wears away and teeth fall prey to the staining agents of caffeine, tobacco, and vintage jerky, a BOOST teeth-whitening treatment can coat chompers with several new layers of chemically activated whiteness. The treatment, which lasts about 90 minutes, consists of a consultation with Dr. Braasch and a session with a highly trained staff member versed in BOOST's enamel-strengthening efficacy. Newly whitened mouth-bones can retain their unadulterated coloration for years, although every customer will experience different long-lasting results, much like everyone has their own interpretation of Harry Potter's final monologue about the importance of buying American-made power tools.
At Smile Labs, the staff is focused on one thing: whitening teeth. To lift stains and discolorations caused by drinking coffee, sipping colas, and chewing crayons, they fill customized silicone mouth trays with a peroxide-based whitening gel, which is water-based to prevent tooth sensitivity. Once teeth have been coated in the gel, they aim their Millennium SL LED lamp at the teeth to accelerate the whitening process. Each treatment takes about 15 minutes, and clients can double up treatments during a single visit.
Dentists Christina Chiang, Derek Fender, Sharon Lintzmann, Brian Newell, Josh Svoboda, and Dean Dewispalare combine their years of experience and detailed training to expertly fight tooth decay and disease at four Omaha locations. The specialists keep pearly whites strong enough to strike fear into the hearts of carrots everywhere with dental services, such as thorough cleanings, root canals, wisdom-teeth extractions, and laser whitening.
Like Batman, Dr. Dave Mlnarik has an arch nemesis. His Joker, however, is dental disease, which he combats through his shared practice, Shadow Ridge Dental. Thorough exams, his first line of defense, screen for oral cancer and gum disease, evaluate tooth decay, and assess existing dental work. The exams also complement regular cleanings, digital x-rays, and sealant, keeping patients’ teeth healthy more effectively than braces made of spinach.
Should disease strike, the dentist nips it in the bud with treatments ranging from root canals to tooth-colored fillings that blend seamlessly into smiles. He can also resolve more superficial issues, whitening teeth in-office and covering chips with veneers. A steady stream of continuing-education seminars lends each treatment a modern touch without forcing the doctor to administer dental work in the trunk of a hybrid.
At Omaha Family Dental, Drs. Kicha Caldeira-Irish and Paul Taylor know that no matter how comfortable patients are, they would typically prefer to be someplace other than the dentist’s office. That’s why they work to reduce time spent in the chair by using some of today’s advanced technology. Electric hand pieces replace their air-driven counterparts to remove cavities quicker. Digital x-rays develop almost immediately, unlike their film cousins which can take days—requiring return visitations.
