Run by Drs. Mark, Ben, and Rena Mollner, Mollner Dentistry is truly a family affair. Originally founded by Mark, the practice opened a new location in Denver with his son, Ben, and daughter-in-law, Rena, newly married and ready to practice their craft. In addition to a family name, the three also share a love of cutting-edge technology and have equipped their space with dental tools such as LED-topped drills and CAD/CAM porcelain-crown technology, and patient comforts including flat-screen monitors. Together, they have worked on more than 500 successful Invisalign cases.
As patients recline in comfortable leather chairs, they pass pretreatment minutes peering out of full-wall windows that look out at a sprawling mountain landscape. In the midst of this open atmosphere, the trio of dentists stays busy, performing tasks ranging from basic tooth maintenance including fillings and crowns to beautifying treatments such as cosmetic bleaching and veneers. They’re also equipped to deal with oral trauma or damage, and can complete root-canal therapy, oral surgery, and fracture repair onsite.
Joy Hewitt Kind and Regina Rodriguez both have a personal passion for helping women in need. Channeling the healing powers of acupuncture and massage, respectively, the two have come together to create Harmony's Family Cooperative, an all-encompassing holistic care center that houses Comfort & Joy Oriental Medicine and helps women relax with massage and acupuncture sessions designed specifically for them. The spa aims to ease the burden on mothers and mothers-to-be through treatments that address fertility problems, postpartum issues, and malaise from the stress of early motherhood, as well as fending off any hired muscle from unpaid storks. They also teach classes that prepare expectant mothers and help keep them level-headed through the early months after giving birth.
Dr. Dan Spencer and Aspen Leaf Dental's experienced staff utilize years of experience with the body's visible bones to treat teeth to a smorgasbord of cosmetic- and family-dentistry services that emphasize preventative cuspid care. Pearly whites' pampering starts with a thorough cleaning, which nixes buildups of plaque, tartar, and hot sauce (a $90 value), before a comprehensive exam monitors mouth health, keeping an eye out for disease, abnormalities, and decay (an $85 value). Aspen Leaf Dental gives chompers two types of x-rays—four bitewing x-rays (a $62 value) and a panoramic-film x-ray destined for release in IMAX theaters next winter (a $107 value). Groupon-holders will also receive $20 off a second cleaning at the clinic, and Aspen Leaf Dental is donating a portion of the total Groupon proceeds to Global Dental Relief, an organization that gives free dental care to impoverished children.
The physical rejuvenation fairy has come to San Diego and will be staying until the airline locates its luggage. Today's Groupon invites you to pick any of nine deluxe treatment packages from BriteSmile for $185 (an up to $1,197 value). On top of personal beautifying of your already-beautiful features, 10% of all BriteSmile proceeds will go to charity. Follow @Groupon_Says on Twitter.
Protecting smiles is a time-honored practice. However, Dr. Heather Stamm and Dr. Kai Kawasugi take a modern approach to this practice by embracing cutting-edge technologies whenever possible. The dentists and their staff are capable of providing general as well as cosmetic care, either catching troublesome conditions early and preventing them from becoming larger issues or correcting existing signs of damage, all with the use of modern dental technology. The E4D system, for example, creates custom-fit crowns, inlays, overlays, and veneers on the same day as the patient's initial visit. Medical-grade lasers can whiten teeth or remove cavities. Additionally, Dr. Stramm and Dr. Kawasugi can use tiny cameras to show patients the insides of their mouths or the interior of a tube of toothpaste. Although these options only represent a handful of the services available at Stamm Dental, the doctors always maintain their commitment to use advanced technology and compassionate care to make patients feel as comfortable as possible.
Drs. Stuart and David Bennett can see the future. Whereas most dentists look into patients’ current dental states, the father-and-son team at Bennett Signature Dentistry uses advanced equipment to both read and help direct patients’ dental destinies. Diagnodent can detect cavities a full year ahead of traditional x-rays, and computer bite analysis measures tooth positioning and helps guide corrective treatments with digital modeling.
One might expect such technology inside a cold, sterile environment, such as a hospital or an android couple’s honeymoon suite. Although Bennett’s graphite hues and stainless-steel fixtures do reflect a commitment to modernity, the clinic also contains an array of anxiety-soothing comforts. Complimentary food and drinks emerge from the countertops of the kitchen, and patrons sink into comfortable fireside chairs. In each operatory, massaging dental chairs work to knead out tension, and flat-panel televisions in front of patients stream Netflix movies and shows.
