Desai Dental Care's Dr. Chetna K. Desai touts more than 20 years of tooth-soothing experience, beautifying mouthscapes with advanced brightening technology. The in-office Power Bleach teeth whitening blasts away smile blemishes in about an hour, imbuing dull, stained, tie-dyed, or discolored chompers with an ivory gleam. Dentally adept incisor artists apply a protective gel or rubber shield to gums, and then slather tooth formations with a bleaching agent. Special light beams then bathe bicuspids, inspiring the bleach's peroxide to whiten teeth five to seven shades, cutting through discoloration caused by age, coffee, or tobacco products. Due to their impenetrable, half-robot nature, dental accessories, such as crowns, bridges, and fillings do not bleach.
As kids await their checkups at Smile Dental Care, they have two choices—play with wooden rocking horses and stuffed animals below colorful paintings of flowers and leaping frogs, or tinker with two iPads mounted on the walls. That blend of a comfortable, caring environment with the latest technology extends to the rest of Dr. Hak J. Seok’s practice, where HDTVs project soothing images over the modern dental chairs. To carry out services ranging from routine cleanings to fillings, porcelain crowns, and extractions, Dr. Seok and his staff use high-tech equipment such as panoramic digital x-rays and painless injections that block pain receptors without the typical discomfort from swapping out patients’ brains.
Continuing-education courses keep Dr. Edward Sharkey abreast of the latest innovations in the fields of periodontal, surgical, and cosmetic dental care. By updating his dental know-how, he can offer his patients these treatments, including checking for cavities with a diagnostic laser, taking digital tooth impressions with a 3-D imaging program, or making smiles brighter than a radioactive snowflake with the Zoom whitening system. When he’s not treating patients at his clinic, Dr. Sharkey also serves on the surgical staff at Howard County General Hospital and donates his scuba-diving skills to the National Aquarium in Baltimore.
The experience of working in a dental clinic while earning his master's of public health program gave Duane L. Archer, MPH, DDS, a personal view of how oral health can affect community members of all ages. The time spent working with patients inspired him to attain his degree in dentistry from the University of Michigan School of Dentistry, memorize orthodontia incantations scrawled by the white-toothed wizards of old, and open Precision Dentistry. As a loving father of four, he welcomes each new patient as he would a member of his own family—by carefully explaining dental options and procedures, answering any questions, and gussying teeth with comprehensive treatments.
Thanks to a doctorate of dental surgery and 20 years of experience, Dr. Hazel Glasper has a reputation for making her clients feel at ease. She is the founder of Teach Me Dental, focusing on comprehensive dentistry. Revive Dental staff confidently operate a beautiful and modern dental office that features decorative artwork that adds to the comfort of the dental experience.
Led by Dr. Owen Allison, the cuspid caretakers at Susquehanna Dental Arts diagnose dental dilemmas and rejuvenate smiles from conundrums caused by tooth discolorations. During new-patient exams, experienced mouth mechanics scope tooth caves for tooth decay, signs of oral cancer, and stowaway swedish fish. Tooth technicians then clean chompers, removing tartar buildup and plaque. Once tongue houses are rendered tidy, incisors and molars pose and smile for four bitewing x-rays, which provide an inside scoop on the interworking of human fangs. Upon completing the examination, the dentist studies the collected data and prescribes a plan for future treatments.
