The multi-lingual staff at Dr. Dental, a family-run practice, strives to shatter orthodontic stereotypes by tidying up tusks in an unintimidating office sporting the ambience of a friendly neighborhood establishment. Return choppers to a glowing state with a new-patient cleaning, a procedure that polishes pearly whites and analyzes teeth’s deep-seated fear of falling out and being exiled by a fairy. After a deep cleaning, the non-judgmental dentist administers bitewing x-rays to inspect for toothy ailments and lays out a long-term treatment plan for molar maintenance. Many locations offer after-hours and weekend appointment times for patients who are busy with work, family, or animal husbandry.
Although she graduated from the Goldman School of Dental Medicine at Boston University more than a decade ago, Dr. Carla Bustillo is still up to date on dental practices. The English- and Spanish-speaking dentist helms Shawsheen Family Dental. Here, she not only employs digital x-rays and intra-oral photography, but she also uses Invisalign, Zoom! whitening, and Six Month Smiles to keep patients' teeth straight and white with minimal effort. In addition to using this technology for aesthetic dentistry, she performs cleanings and fillings and crafts custom porcelain veneers rather than traditional papier m?ch? veneers.
At Laser Image, plastic surgeon Dr. Stephen J. Scully leads a team of medical aesthetic technicians as they work to realize clients? goals. Though most of Laser Image's services can be performed within 30 minutes and require no downtime or reciting of pledges, a complimentary consultation is always provided to ensure clients receive the best treatment for their aesthetic concerns.
After deciding a course of action, the staff harnesses the beams of various lasers to perform services ranging from eliminating unwanted hair to fading stretch marks, sun spots, and acne. Skin is further treated during exfoliating ultrasonic facials and chemical peels, which aestheticians personalize with pharmaceutical-quality products and carefully embroidered monograms. Botox injections can smooth fine lines, and laser teeth whitening puts the finishing touch on dazzling visages.
Specializing solely in whitening smiles, the technicians of Express Teeth Whitening Center help fade blemishes on teeth, allowing patrons to smile with confidence, whether it's for that job interview or presentation, or to just feel more at ease, all without the hassle of a dental-office visit. For teeth-whitening treatments, a technician will assess the type of treatment that will work best for the client by using a mouth tray with either 36% or 44% carbamide peroxide gel or a cheek retractor with 16% hydrogen peroxide whitening gel. After that, the technician will provide the client with protective glasses and activate the stain-zapping power with a blue light. The combination whitens teeth two to seven shades and produces immediate results, unlike going back in time to un-drink a year's worth of cups of coffee.
At Dental Bright Advanced Family Dentistry, a team of seven dentists keeps teeth looking and feeling their best with a full spectrum of services, from general dentistry to periodontics to orthodontia. Using digital x-rays and oral sedation, they help dramatically reduce both radiation and anxiety. Their treatment rooms' chair-side flat screens also keep restless uvulas entertained during services. It's important to the dental crew that kids grasp the importance of dental health, so the Dental Bright Kids Club periodically plies tykes with helpful tips along with ice cream, pizza, or sugar-spun dental floss at bowling parties.
The office itself lives up to the practice’s name with sweeping, airy spaces that are tied together with huge windows, curved blue walls, and orange accents. Even the kids' section of the waiting room is chic, with round neon stools and mod murals adding pops of color to the toothbrush-scrubbed interior.
The specialists at Concord, Andover, and Weymouth Dental Associates make dental care faster and more comfortable. The team at Andover Cosmetic Dental Group consists of an orthodontist, a dental anesthesiologist, a periodontist, and an endodontist, allowing patients to address multiple needs under one roof. They use the latest anesthetic advancements to put guests at ease, including the Wand, with bidirectional rotation that prevents needle deflection, and the computerized Comfort Control syringe, which offers more controlled and consistent delivery than a manual syringe. The clinical staff at Weymouth Dental Associates also uses the CEREC system to design and fabricate ceramic restorations in one convenient visit, eliminating the need to cover treated teeth with temporary crowns or Lego helmets.
Cosmetic and general dentist Rich Miller, who practices at the Andover, Weymouth, and Concord locations, is a member of the Dental Comfort Academy, an organization dedicated to making trips to the dentist a more pleasant experience.
