Since graduating from the University of Missouri-Kansas City in 1989, Dr. Cliff Broschinsky—known as Dr. B to his patients—has been keeping pace with the constantly evolving field of dentistry. At his practice, tooth-colored composite resins replace metal amalgams for cavity repair and Invisalign orthodontics take the place of wire braces or stern ballet instructors to nudge teeth into straighter positions. Patients undergo these modern treatments while surrounded by décor from a bygone era, including Victorian-style couches, brocade curtains, and ornate tables.
Although Dr. Imran Rizvi graduated dental school in 1997, his dental education has continued every day of his career. He also attends additional training at the Las Vegas Institute for Advanced Dental Studies every year, picking up always-evolving techniques for composite fillings, teeth-whitening, and dental implant procedures. Like the best mustaches, his training also goes above and beyond the mouth, addressing neuromuscular disorders that include TMJ.
Walnut Creek Dental Center's Dr. Colin Au recognizes the importance of educating himself as well as each of his patients. That's why he regularly takes continuing education classes, attends dental conferences and seminars, and reads the nutrition panels on cereal boxes. He then transfers his knowledge to patients, equipping them with the skills to prevent common oral diseases. Should a problem arise, Dr. Au and his team stand at the ready to handle most types of mouth-related issues. For those who are afraid of dental visits, Walnut Creek is equipped with Waterlase laser equipment that substitutes for a dental drill during various treatments. Patients can also achieve straighter teeth by working with Reem Stephanos, a dental professional who specializes in orthodontia.
Both Berkeley Dentistry's and Shadelands Dental Care's dental squads are led by Dr. Ricky Singh, DMD, a University of Pennsylvania grad who specializes in cosmetic dentistry and dental implants. Treatment starts with an oral exam and x-rays to search for cracks, chips, and hardened peanut-butter globs, before professional tooth cleaners swoop in to take care of tartar and hard-to-reach plaque. In addition to a thorough mouth scrubbing, patients can choose to up their smile's ability to reflect light with a take-home teeth-whitening kit, which includes impressions and a stain-busting gel that helps teeth shine brighter than a firework shot at a mirror.
Fillings. Root canals. Extractions. Movies. Though these may seem like items in the game One Of These Things Is Not Like The Other, they all fit in at Moy Dental. That's because the dental practice makes its clients as comfortable as possible during appointments, pairing them with warm neck wraps, bottled water, and even soup following major treatments. TVs grace the walls in each room, inviting clients to watch a film or a series of their favorite commercials while having their teeth whitened or a crown adhered. Same-day emergency care further sets clients at ease, while an incentive program rewards them for referring new patients to the practice.
Two dentists head up Davidson Dental Group’s experienced team: Warren Davidson, DDS, and his daughter Elena Davidson-Arbit, DDS. Alongside a crew of hygienists, the duo of dentists works to straighten teeth with Invisalign, whiten them with Zoom! devices, treat them with laser dentistry, and replace them with dental crowns or eye-catching ice cubes.
