Product of Georgia’s university and college system, Dr. Juanita Adkins planted her roots along the tree-lined streets of Augusta by opening Downtown Dental in March of 2006. Today, with her offices nestled in among the little shops and restaurants, she executes all manner of dentistry, from general checkups and teeth whitenings to dental implants and dentures. She remains ahead of the dental curve through continual education, and by wielding the latest in technology such as digital x-rays that reduce radiation exposure and offer more comprehensive views of the mouth.
Dr. Mike Franklin didn?t always see himself as a dentist; in fact, he worked for seven years in corporate America before deciding that helping others was his true calling. He decided to study dentistry, a choice that would lead him to open Vivid Smile Dental Center in 2011. Dr. Franklin and associates perform a full slate of preventive, surgical, and cosmetic procedures, including routine cleanings and checkups, x-rays, root canals, dental implants, crowns, and teeth whitening.
Because Sunset Dental's staff recognizes that going to the dentist can be unpleasant for some, it has designed an office that keeps patients' comfort in mind. Massaging dental chairs and sedation dentistry help relax patients, and digital x-rays take images of teeth and roots. Above all, the staff comforts patients by listening to their concerns and complaints before attempting any general or cosmetic services.
Twenty-two dentists uphold Friendly Neighborhood Dental Center’s tooth-care empire, which fans out across eight North and South Carolina locations. Each of these mouth mages looks after the chompers of children and adults by providing hygienic, restorative, and cosmetic services. Regular exams detect plaque, decay, or hopelessly lost astronauts, and crowns, veneers, and fillings replace damaged spots with natural-looking alloys or amalgams. The dentists can recommend braces or Invisalign to straighten out rogue teeth, and the in-office or take-home whitening treatments turn smiles the shade of jeans laundered in whitewash.
Smiles sparkle in safety and bask in healthiness under the care of a team of cavity conquerors led by Dr. Jordan, who has over 30 years of experience with restorative and cosmetic dentistry. During the exam, the skilled professionals seek out potential signs of gum disease, tooth decay, and nascent gills in an inspection of the gums, tongue, and teeth. X-rays are taken for a more intimate glimpse into the secret lives of mouth bones, which looks to reveal any previously unseen drama beneath the surfaces of the gums. Meanwhile, the thorough cleaning helps to polish porcelain posses and remove menacing plaque and tartar as floss slithers between teeth. Before being released to smile at ornery crossing guards, teeth owners are tutored on healthy brushing habits and flossing techniques.
A dental office that emphasizes health and prevention alongside treatment, Palmetto Dental Services has been helping chompers stay healthy and strong for more than 40 years. Licensed dental hygienists perform teeth cleanings, removing tartar buildup and plaque, which can lead to dental disease and embarrassing singing fish mounted on the incisors. Dental exams test oral health with screenings for cancerous growths, tooth decay, and gum disease, and they also include a checkup on existing restorations such as crowns and fillings. Like a palm reading for mandibles, the full x-ray treatment reveals any unseen problems inside teeth or under the gum line.
