At Ideal Dentistry, Dr. Christian W. Hahn specializes in cosmetic dentistry. The doctor dedicates himself to performing handcrafted cosmetic techniques that imbue refurbished smiles with a natural and realistic appearance. When patients arrive, they're escorted to a private consultation room to meet with the doctor and discuss their desired results. After a "quick-look" exam and a few digital photographs, the doctor will help the patient determine which dental tests and treatments should follow on their next visit.
The doctor demonstrates his compassion for patients and commitment to health by using safe, advanced dental technology. He also uses safe and aesthetically pleasing compounds such as white composite and porcelain. So dedicated is Dr. Hahn to the use of natural ingredients in dentistry, he is the founder and president of Dr. Hahn?s Naturals, which exists for the sole purpose of replacing harmful chemicals with natural dental products. In addition, technologies such as digital x-rays spare patients the radiation exposure and anachronistic lectures of traditional x-ray equipment.
Arbor Ridge Vine & Grill boasts a pleasant atmosphere, where couples and familial clans can imagine themselves in the shade of vineyards that whisper helpful wine suggestions to thirsty ears.

At Kentucky Oral Surgery & Dental Implant Center, board-certified oral and maxillofacial surgeons Drs. Thad Schulten, W. Ronald Harris, and Timothy Acord and their team of certified assistants use the latest techniques and technology to perform a variety of procedures. They specialize in treatments ranging from dental-implant surgery and wisdom-tooth removal to corrective jaw surgery, and monitor patients before, during, and after surgeries that feature intravenous (IV) sedation or outpatient general anesthesia. The skilled surgeons can also remove excess folds or under-eye bags with eyelid surgery, and use surgical or nonsurgical treatments to address sleep apnea resulting from an albatross-obstructed airflow.
The Kentucky Center for Orthodontics’ trio of doctors all got into orthodontics when they realized just how much a great smile can improve someone’s life. Dr. Douglas Durbin, the inventor of the Flosspik polypropylene interproximal dental cleaner, Dr. Thomas Garner, and Dr. John Huang enhance the smiles of both children and adults with Invisalign treatments, braces with clear brackets, and invisible retainers glued to the back of teeth. They use digital imaging to construct treatment plans, they avoid headgear whenever possible, and they never just pull out a tooth when it won’t cooperate. Under their steady hands, The Kentucky Center for Orthodontics has straightened the teeth of more than 35,000 patients, including Miss Kentucky USA 2009 Maria Montgomery.
Dr. Gary L. Griffin and his team follow a philosophy of treating each patient as an individual, so much so that they refer to each patient as their guest. Dr. Griffin’s office schedules only one appointment at a time, giving each guest a heaping dose of undivided attention and virtually eliminating long wait times and attempts to break the land speed record for thumb twiddling. Once inside the sunny yellow treatment room, guests can relax in the thickly cushioned office chair amid an arsenal of up-to-date equipment such as laser dental technology and a flat-screen TV. During initial appointments, Dr. Griffin looks deeply into medical histories and works with guests to develop custom treatment plans to fit their needs and expectations.
