Before opening his private practice in Eagle, Dr. Jacob Brown served a tour of duty in the U.S. Army as a general dentist and Director of the Red Cross Dental Assistant Training Program. After completing his service, Dr. Brown settled in Idaho with his wife and five daughters and opened up Castlebury Dental. Working alongside experienced assistants, he keeps mouths healthy with intraoral cameras, electric handpieces, and digital x-rays that expose teeth to less radiation than traditional X-rays or traditional isotope-chewing contests. One of Dr. Brown's many specialties is his use of rotary endodontics, a procedure that allows him to perform root canals quicker than is possible through conventional methods.
SmileLabs of Meridian specializes in the optimization of smiles using a sophisticated in-office whitening system. Technicians inaugurate sessions by having patients paint teeth with gel using an Applia-Brush, then hasten its stain-busting skills with activating beams from the FDA-approved Infinity Pro SL Whitening Accelerator. The virtually painless treatments can lighten grins up to eight shades, with results lasting for a year or more if patients practice proper maintenance and abstain from chewing on printer-ink cartridges.
Dr. F. Todd Wortham—or “Dr. T,” as his patients call him—is so well trained in implantology, he finds installing replacement teeth to be fun. The dentist, who has more than 500 hours of continuing education in advanced dental techniques under his belt, has learned to be one with his work to such a degree that even the challenging procedures have become a joy.
Together with longtime colleague Dr. Rachel M. Deininger, Dr. T takes time to get to know each patient who comes through the door or scratches through the drywall. In addition to installing dental implants, the doctors treat periodontal disease, whiten teeth with custom bleaching trays, and fit patients for dentures.
