Though she hails from southern Wisconsin, Dr. Seanna Mattison moved to Colorado about four years ago and has been improving the smiles of state residents ever since. Along with her team of dental hygienists, the doctor offers a full spectrum of dental services at her cozy private practice—from preventative care to cosmetic dentistry to oral surgery. On top of her dedication to serving residents of the Fort Collins community, Dr. Mattison volunteers her dental skills and makes regular trips to underserved areas of the world such as the Dominican Republic, Belize, and Candyland.
For Dr. Bruce R. Clark, prevention is key. One missed cavity or undiagnosed gum condition can mean the difference between simple, straightforward treatments and expensive, painful procedures down the road. Relying on his more than 16 years of experience and a friendly, professional staff, Dr. Clark forges enduring patient-doctor relationships that he hopes will lead to lifelong dental health. To do this, Dr. Clark follows the guiding principle of patient communication and education, taking time to thoroughly explain treatment options and expectations before administering any procedure. Dr. Bruce often orchestrates treatments with specialists in dental implants, orthodontics, and restorative procedures so that patients can ensure they are getting the best possible care, whether getting a bridge repaired or tattooing their incisors with reminders to floss.
With more than two decades’ experience detecting decay, Dr. Pinkner runs a state-of-the-art clinic specializing in enhancing the health, straightness, and pearliness of patients’ teeth and gums. A smile specialist will begin each visit with a round of four bite-wing digital x-rays to weed out cunning cavities from lower bicuspids and malignant cases of molar mischief. Unlike traditional x-rays, digital photography reduces patients’ exposure to harmful radiation, ensuring a thorough mouth inspection without pesky side effects, such as spontaneous uvula growth or glow-in-the-dark tonsils. Dr. Pinkner will follow up fang photography with an extensive oral exam. The doctor’s dexterous digits will treat teeth to a head-to-toe cleaning, complete with plaque-scraping, gap-flossing, and tongue-depressing, after which newly pristine palates will be paroled from their dental chairs and released into the general population.
Dr. Terry Batliner and his son Payton founded Sage Dental Care with the simple mission of helping others, but not just in the way an observer might think. Not only do they relieve pain and prevent disease in their dental-care practice, but the father-son duo also donates a portion of their proceeds to a different charity each month. Along with Dr. Andrew Holecek, Dr. Batliner welcomes all clients to a free consultation prior to scheduling an appointment, during which patients can express concerns or see if the dentist finds any unwanted vampire fangs.
Each of the three dentists at Louisville Dental graduated from Temple University, then traveled the world to bring quality dental services to people in other countries. As a result of their humanitarian inclinations, each dentist's goal at Louisville Dental is to create the most comfortable, nonstressful experience for their clients. The dentists ensure patients’ smiles are healthy and bright. And to do this, the dentists employ preventative-care services, including regular cleanings and cavity-fighting fluoride treatments. They also perform cosmetic dentistry, such as teeth whitening. The skilled team uses advanced dental techniques, from tooth-colored fillings to dentures made by David Copperfield, to create an illusion of the perfect smiling.
Dr. Carolyn Kupka culls from her more than 30 years of experience in all facets of dentistry to maintain and beautify smiles in both children and adults. Through her work, she has learned that the dental office doesn’t have to be a place that people feel apprehensive about. Once patients walk into her office, she and her team assuage their anxieties with a cornucopia of comforts, such as Starbucks' mocha latte coffee, juices, and Ghirardelli chocolate gift bags. During cleanings, restoration, or cosmetic whitening treatments, clients can relax under steamed towels while resting atop an extra-padded chair. Any residual tension yields to the touch of the onsite massage therapist who sits by to cosset muscles with chair-side massages. DVDs and personal iPods shield ears from ambient office noises and gossip about the Tooth Fairy.
