Dr. Andrew Hall's love of tending to teeth has led him across the country and the globe. After returning from a deployment in Iraq, where he provided dental services for nearly 2,500 soldiers and civilians, he set out again, this time for training at the Las Vegas Institute for Advanced Dental Studies, which specializes in neuromuscular and cosmetic dentistry. Today, he couples his advanced experience with advanced dental technology such as Cerec 3-D imaging, which helps him to create precise-fitting crowns in around an hour and negates the need to implant temporary crowns or tiny, tooth-colored construction cones. His office also caters to nervous patients with the use of NuCalm, a natural relaxation aid that joins forces with soothing music to bring bodies to a presleep-like state of calm.
Dr. Richard Koch, a former army captain whose family refers to him as a human encyclopedia, and Dr. Doug Koch have been filling cavities, installing implants, and straightening teeth for more than two decades. The dental professionals describe themselves as conservative, ensuring that every procedure they do is necessary, instead of yanking out every tooth with spinach clinging to it.
They work in an office that eases anxiety with treatment massage chairs, and offers a toy tower that rewards children who didn’t eat one of the dentist’s fingers. They use advanced technology such as digital x-rays and a soft tissue laser, and they update their equipment every 1–2 years.
DaVinci White Smiles specializes in FDA-compliant teeth-whitening systems manufactured in the United States. Unlike whitening gels that are made from a mixture of paste and powdered donut residue, DaVinci's gels are forged from organic plant- and mineral-based ingredients, with food-grade hydrogen peroxide serving as the active catalyst. Made in fresh batches every week, the gels work together with LED whitening lights to demolish stains from teeth or composite materials, such as crowns or bridges, leaving choppers up to 14 shades whiter in just 20 minutes.
Rangewood Dental's owner and presiding dentist, Dr. Gary Hickenlooper, who has been practicing dentistry since 1982, fortifies cavitated chompers with natural or gold fillings, performs routine cleanings, or hides damaged teeth behind porcelain veneers. To ensure dental well-being, Dr. Hickenlooper includes oral-cancer screenings in every examination he performs and keeps his keen eyes trained skyward for the tooth signal, in the event of a late-night emergency.
Seasoned dental dynamos Drs. Mollner and Mollner—a father and son duo—maintain mouths and catch falling smiles with a full array of state-of-the-art cosmetic services. Today's Groupon keeps teeth orally evaluated with a thorough exam, a standard cleaning to polish mouthstones, and digital x-rays that hunt for hidden health issues. A cosmetic consultation with digital imaging will explore the need for any bleaching, veneers, or crowning, which readies teeth regents with tiny rhinestone tiaras. Mollner/Mollner also staffs a periodontist who can authoritatively discuss all of your gummy affairs, and as an added bonus, Groupies with chompers in need of extra scrubbing will get half off any necessary deep-cleaning treatments.
At Audubon Dental P.C., Dr. Mylene Glueckert Reinicke and her squad of trained tooth techs work hard to brighten chompers with LumiBrite light-activated whitening gel. Over the course of an hour, enamel is scrubbed clean of excessive stains from coffee, tea, and age. During the appointment, chompers also pose for impressions that will be used to create take-home custom trays that fit the mouth as snug as a glove that has been repeatedly gnawed on. Patients waltz home with these custom trays along with their own supply of whitening gel, which may be used for routine upkeep or as the finishing touch on an all too-lifelike marionette.
