Though Dr. Jasmeen Goyal of Great Smiles is passionate about treating people of all ages, what she may enjoy the most is working with children. Fittingly, the children's play area in the office brims with stuffed toys, an Xbox console, and cartoon channels on the flat-screen TV. Dr. Goyal aims to set her young patients on lifelong paths toward excellent dental health with her gentle chairside manner and preventive—rather than corrective—approach.
During the exam at Jefferson Dental, which welcomes walk-ins, one of the dentists from the smile-savvy staff ventures into facial caves in search of tooth decay and gum disease. A skilled technician then snaps x-ray pictures, uncovering hidden problems to use as blackmail. Opting to add cleaning ensures that a whirlpool of floss and paste separates debris, plaque, and tartar from enamel and that fangs look more polished than a socialite dipped in wax.
Floss Dental's dentists and surgeons, many of whom are often featured on local TV stations, may specialize in preventative care, but they also beautify mouths with cosmetic- and reconstructive-surgery services, such as veneers, Invisalign, and dental implants. They harness panoramic x-rays to get a complete view of the teeth, and they broadcast these pictures on a TV, which helps them explain which treatments are necessary and to point out which tooth would look best with an inlaid diamond chip.
Floss Dental encourages patients to keep coming back by offering free Invisalign consultations and free Boost whitening once a year to those who maintain their regular cleanings. Flat-screen TVs and satellite radio entertain patients during their procedures, and sedation dentistry keeps them free from anxiety in a dream-like state.

They also accomplish quality orthodontics with braces designed to suit the smiles of all ages.
Dr. Edwina Evangelista, a member of the American Dental Association, aligns and lightens clients' teeth. Using a series of ClearCorrect aligners, specialists straighten teeth gradually and covertly without resorting to archaic methods such as having clients chew on repurposed kindergarteners' rulers. First, doctors send impressions, photos, and x-rays to ClearCorrect, which then creates exact 3-D models of grills and maps out complete treatment plans before employing an arsenal of computers to create custom aligners. Patients wear their aligners all the time, except while eating, drinking, brushing, flossing, and growling at bears. Periodic checkups throughout the process ensure that the process is proceeding smoothly.
