Dr. Paul C. Simeteys stands at the helm of The Dental Suite, where he uses his more than 30 years of expertise to reinforce his clients' health and ensure their comfort. In addition to preventive care, such as disease screening and cleaning, the friendly team performs restorations and cosmetic treatments including teeth whitening and crafting custom porcelain veneers, whose thin, durable material can effectively correct odd tooth shapes or skewer the trunk of a tree to expose its syrup supply. While waiting for appointments, patients can relax in the gilded reception area with golden wood trim and glossy marble flooring.
Dr. Darron Tanioka leaves his patients smiling after providing them with general, cosmetic, and orthodontic dental services. At Creekside Dental, he examines mouths for signs of decay or disease and removes plaque and tartar covering the teeth. He also whitens teeth with Zoom treatments that use a light-activated hydrogen-peroxide gel to remove red-wine, smoking, and coffee stains. His services extend beyond mouth care, however. He also helps treat sleep apnea using a comfortable dental appliance.
Growing up in a small town in rural Nebraska, Scott Krause, DDS, learned not only the value of hard work, but also the importance of helping others. The compassionate dentist has made multiple volunteer trips to Mexico, Bangladesh, and Tanzania to restore underserved people's smiles and self-confidence. During a recent journey to a Kenyan orphanage, Dr. Krause and his team performed 175 procedures for 108 patients in need.
His passion for service also extends to his patients at home. Dr. Krause continuously attends dental lectures and conventions to stay ahead of the latest restorative and cosmetic procedures. He beautifies grins with daVinci veneers, clear Invisalign aligners, and durable Empress crowns, whose heat-pressed glass-ceramic material can withstand years of mistaking bowls full of decorative rocks for candy.
One moment, Dr. Coleman was standing tall on the lake’s water, balancing on wooden skis as water splayed behind him like a rooster tail. The next moment, he crashed headfirst into the water, cracking his front teeth on the way down. It wasn’t until four years later that Dr. Coleman regained his smile, an experience that left him yearning to study dentistry.
Now at the helm of Coleman Dentistry, Dr. Coleman works hard to pass on that feeling of being able to grin with confidence in a comfortable environment. Slight bubbling sounds drift from a hanging fountain in the waiting room, inducing daydreams of faraway lagoons or scuba divers singing Frank Sinatra. During appointments, patients sink into a heated massage chair, swaddle themselves in warm blankets, or watch flat-screen TVs inside the treatment room. Other perks include dark sunglasses, earplugs, and afternoon wines to cap off clean bills of dental health.
At North County Cosmetic and Implant Dentistry, Craig R. Huenergardt, DDS and Christopher S. Henninger, DMD use the latest industry advancements to care for teeth and gums. They employ the computer-aided 3-D technology of the CEREC machine to design and fabricate ceramic crowns in a single convenient visit. They also use this 3-D technology in placing implants for missing teeth or stabilizing dentures. The duo also uses laser energy, eliminating the heat, vibration, and cross-stitched kitten sutures associated with restorations and surgical procedures. The dentists perform cosmetic services ranging from smile-straightening Invisalign treatments to whitening and porcelain veneers, and are certified to provide conscious sedation for patients with dental anxiety or a nervous tick that involves doing the worm.
