A slew of advanced technology helps Dr. Houser improve his patients’ smiles. Digital x-rays capture chompers’ inner workings with nearly 80% less radiation that traditional x-rays, and an intraoral camera projects images of the mouth onto a screen for patients and Dr. Houser to view together. Dr. Houser also wields an electric handpiece to perform root canals as a quicker speed, remove decay from teeth, and tattoo your favorite team logo onto cuspids.
Dr. John J. Andre draws on training in general dentistry, Invisalign systems, and laser treatments while heading a team of doctors and dental hygienists. They perform treatments that range from routine cleanings to implants or extractions, leaving smiles that are beautiful even when directed eerily at the only other person in a life raft. The dentists also specialize in pediatric dentistry, striving to put children at ease during cleanings and to educate them about oral hygiene.
Emphasizing preventative care, the professionals at Dental Care of Columbia and Family Dental Care of Maple Lawn scour sullied maws with dental exams, digital x-rays, and hygienic cleanings. During each exam, specialists conduct a complete periodontal screening to check for evidence of gum disease, cavities, cracks, and meteorites. Digital x-rays emit half the radiation emitted by traditional devices and send all captured images directly to a computer, where technicians and patients alike can immediately view the information on a screen.

Using a combination of whitening gel and FDA-approved blue accelerating lights, the DaVinci teeth-whitening system can leave teeth an average of up to eight shades whiter. During office visits, clients apply the signature whitening solution—an organic plant- and mineral-based gel—to chompers. A specially designed LED laser light is used with the food-grade hydrogen-peroxide gel to lift lingering stains. Once the total transformation is complete, patients may walk away with the graffiti of tobacco, wine, coffee, and age erased from the highway overpasses of their smiles. To continue the process, patients can also take home a personal whitening kit that includes 12 gel applications, custom-fitted trays, and remineralizing and desensitizing gel to care for enamel. DaVinci Teeth Whitening also sells gift certificates.
