Though it’s a locally owned location, America’s Mattress is a nationally known name. And just like its other branches, the Derby location offers more than 25 styles of Serta mattresses among other brand names including Perfect Sleeper and Tempur-Pedic. Around the store, one may hear the soft whisper of trained mattress experts as they help customers choose the right mattress and educate them on the proper sleep position to conjure up dreams of flying that don’t end in emergency water landings.
Even though he’s been practicing general dentistry for over three decades, Dr. Ted Milligan still studies like a student. Though his membership to professional organizations including the American Dental Association, Kansas Dental Association, and Academy of General Dentistry might keep him busy, it also keeps him sharp, cluing him in to advances within his specialties. Dr. Milligan and his staff treat mouths to a full range of dental care, from preventive maintenance and cosmetic treatments to smile-changing implants and endodontic work. He also stocks his office with the latest dental technologies, revealing secret trouble spots with safe digital x-rays or taking an intimate look at fillings, decay, or molar tattoos with the help of an intraoral camera.
Fueled by a passion for people and a devotion to keeping up with current technologies, Dr. Nancy Tran leads a personable staff in brightening slouchy smiles. At the first of two appointments, patients present their dull chompers to staffers who then take impressions. The impressions are used to create custom whitening trays, which can be used as mouth guards during thumb-wrestling matches. During the second appointment, smiles are united with their cog covers and clients are sent home with a carbamide-peroxide gel solution designed to lighten teeth and chewed up lace doilies two–four shades.
A take-home teeth-whitening treatment from Wichita Family Dental is a safe, easy, and effective way to brighten dingy teeth. One of the dental professionals—most likely Dr. Pierson, Dr. Windle, or Dr. Begnoche—will evaluate your teeth before taking an impression to create custom fitting trays. Then, after ensuring the trays fit on your teeth like a wetsuit on a portly linebacker, you'll be ready to administer the whitening agent. This not-so-secret agent will rip through stains accumulated from various foodstuffs, drinks, natural aging, and unnatural rituals involving squid ink and asphalt. Much like owning a child, results can last several years, and it's recommended you tend to your whitened teeth every 6–12 months with some sort of preventive care. Wichita Family Dental uses the statiest-of-artiest equipment along with comfortable furniture and plush surroundings to make every patient comfortable and excited to display his or her newly gleaming mouthgate.
American Dental offers family-friendly care with a variety of restorative services for teeth of all shapes and sizes, including cleaning, fillings, crowns, and more. During the initial consultation, an experienced dentist will examine mouths from every angle, searching along incisors and canines for signs of decay and plaque buildup. For deeper issues, patrons sit for a set of x-rays, which uses electromagnetic radiation to plunge into the unseen depths of calcium and gum tissue and find out which bicuspid is hiding the queen of hearts. In order to elevate smiles to clean and sparkling states, ultrasonic water jets, hand tools, and tooth polishers burrow beneath layers of molar moss, revealing a mouthy bounty of pearly whites underneath.
Invisalign straightens crooked chompers with a combination of highly advanced, 3-D computer graphics and the spells of old-fashioned orthodontia. The Invisalign process eschews cumbersome braces for clear, removable aligners that are virtually invisible to the unclothed eye. An initial exam, including a CT scan, photos, diagnostic records, and an oral examination, paves the way for a flurry of calibrated teeth sheaths that are designed to slowly shift walnut crackers into perfect alignment. The total cost of an Invisalign treatment varies for each customer (it can run anywhere from $4,000 to $8,000); this Groupon gets you $1,000 toward that final cost. View some Invisalign FAQs here.
Lots of dentists don’t seem to consider the experience their patients have at their offices, but Dr. Kreg Boynton does. At Boynton Family Dental Arts, patients wait in plush leather chairs and sip complimentary coffee and bottled water; they listen to music with office-supplied headphones during treatments; and after they’re finished, they clean up with warm, freshly scented towels. Dr. Boynton’s treatments range from general fillings to cosmetic teeth-whitening sessions to advanced TMJ treatments.
