In private practice for nearly a decade, John E. Holmes, DDS, sits at the helm of Colonial Dental ushering patients along the road toward good oral health with the help of his trusty team. Striving to stay current in dental research, the team welcomes patients for family, restorative, and cosmetic dentistry. They also perform root canals and teeth-whitening services and help straighten teeth without unsightly metal braces, as a certified Invisalign provider.
Showtime Dental and Orthodontics' Dr. Smith, a graduate of one of the country's top dental schools, does whatever she can to make a trip to the dentist not only tolerable, but also enjoyable. Her waiting room features a movie theater, where patients can watch movies while enjoying complimentary beverages and snacks. The entertainment continues in the dental suites, where patients can tune out their treatment with the help of a TV show or music?whether they need a simple checkup or something more advanced, such as mini dental implants.
While Dr. Smith works on her adult patients' teeth, Showtime Dental's staffers supervise their kids to make sure they stay safe and don't start questioning the existence of Santa.
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.
Dr. John Rubin, a graduate of the University of Texas School of Dentistry, strives to make trips to the dentist as stress-free as possible, whether performing general checkups or dental-emergency care. To limit pain during procedures, he can administer oral and audio sedation, and also alleviates fears as a certified practitioner of sedation-sleep dentistry. His trained staff further comforts patients with amenities such as heated massage chairs, CDs and video, and long-lost teddy bears.
A comprehensive and modern dentistry office, Benbrook Dental treats kids and adults with the latest techniques and technology. Putting patient comfort first, the staff uses equipment such as the Isolite, an ergonomic bite block that allows patients to comfortably keep mouths open during procedures, as well as digital x-rays that expose patients to less radiation than traditional x-rays. The office keeps kids entertained with video games, DVDs, and a play area. To ensure efficient visits, the staff also employs intra-oral cameras to get panoramic views of the whole mouth, and offers nitrous oxide and sedatives to ease nerves and foster deep relaxation during procedures.
With more than 500 wisdom-teeth surgeries under his belt, Dr. Mark Angerbauer knows his way around the inside of a mouth. His residency in the US Air Force built on his training in general dentistry from the University of Texas, which taught him such techniques as straightening teeth with Invisalign orthodontics and replacing missing teeth with dental implants.
Dr. Angerbauer is a self-proclaimed optimist and people person who aims to ease patients’ anxieties with his friendly demeanor. When cheerful smiles and informing patients that they are currently not on fire aren’t enough to relax them, the doctor can administer IV sedation during any and all dental procedures.
