At Astounding Bright Confident Smiles Dental Center, which is led by general dentist Dr. Charzetta Moore, the staff seeks to preserve the shine of its patients' smiles with a multifaceted approach to dentistry. The first line of defense is general and preventive care, which covers cleaning, periodontal health, and strategies for teeth to use in fighting off the Tooth Fairy. Should problems arise, Dr. Moore can perform extractions, create crowns, and help address issues such as sleep apnea. For patients who want more of a full-mouth makeover, Dr. Moore also offers braces and cosmetic services that can completely renovate teethscapes.
Generations Family Dental Care is a community-focused facility with a caring staff that is dedicated and passionate about preventative health and treatment of any dental issues. Some dental emergencies are sudden—a tooth knocked out or a debilitating ache. But most extreme dental problems are slow developing; it's these disasters that Dr. Kimberly A. Orr and the staff at Generations Family Dental Care seek to prevent, focusing on preventive dental care for all their guests. Their thorough exams check over every nook and cranny, searching for plaque build-up, tooth decay, and signs of oral cancer. A Velscope machine provides extra problem-finding power, using blue light to illuminate disease. Cleanings leave most mouths sparkling fresh, and dozens of advanced procedures fix everything from missing teeth to gum disease.
Dr. Joseph Serra breaks up stains, fades yellowing, and brightens bicuspids with Opalescence Boost whitening treatments. The service begins as Dr. Serra wraps tarnished chompers with a whitening gel containing potassium nitrate and fluoride, both of which help to strengthen enamel and decrease sensitivity. A strong light activates the bleaching properties of the gel, which dissolves discolorations and coffee graffiti tags, leaving patients with a whiter smile after a single one-hour treatment. Though not included in this Groupon, two to three sessions beget more dramatic whitening results.
Dr. Timothy Kosinski of SmileCreator has placed over 7,000 dental implants throughout his career. When he isn't crafting dentures, treating gums, or replacing fangs with tusks, he works as an adjunct assistant professor at a university. Because of his achievements in his field, he won the Lifelong Learning and Service Recognition award from the Academy of General Dentistry in 2009. In addition to contributing to two textbooks, he has published more than 80 articles on implant dentistry and has written an unpublished collection of dental-themed haikus. Although Dr. Kosinski offers more routine preventive care, he mostly performs full-mouth reconstruction and cosmetic dentistry, and so, in order to help patients relax during these services, he can use both intravenous and oral sedation. Treatment rooms help patients unwind without sedation with TVs, individual headphones, DVDs, and computer equipment.
Inside this state-of-the-art dental center, Drs. John and Gianni S. DeCarolis combine their expertise to administer cleanings, cosmetic dentistry, and dental treatments for the entire family. The up-to-date office swells with elegance, from the wall-size windows overlooking a verdant lawn to the French-style double doors leading into the reception area. But it’s the advanced technology housed beyond those doors that really makes the studio swell with sophistication. Digital x-rays and intraoral cameras provide a rare look at each tooth’s internal health and the uvula’s collection of swallowed gum, while Zoom whitening procedures help take years off a smile with help from a light-activated gel.
