At Gemini Dental, oral care is a family affair: the sons of a prominent Peruvian dentist in Lima, brothers Luis and Jorge Velis opened their own clinic after graduating together from the University of Florida in 1998, helping them stay as close to each other as two front teeth. Dedicated to keeping their skills sharp, the brothers and their staff undergo continuing education. It allows them hone their skills with such smile-improving procedures as affixing Invisalign braces, performing virtual imaging, and teaching the hygienically correct way to pull back lips and pretend to be in a wind tunnel. Besides regular dental care, the six staff doctors render such advanced services as low-radiation digital X-rays and single-visit, ceramic crowns.
The dentists and doctors at Dental Specialists of Doral want to make sure their clients have the healthiest—and healthiest-looking—teeth possible. New patients can come in for their first exam, where a dentist will take patient history, exam teeth, take x-rays, and perform a thorough cleaning, or clients can choose to have their teeth whitened in the office. Using either the popular Zoom! or BriteSmile whitening technique, a thin layer of whitening gel is spread on each client’s teeth, and a low-intensity light activates the gel, resulting in teeth 6–10 shades whiter after the procedure.
Dr. Raul Gonzalez and his team commit to making every appointment as stress-free as possible. One technique for putting visitors at ease is to employ an arsenal of cutting-edge dental technology intended to diagnose and treat patients with greater speed and comfort. The practice’s signature microdentistry procedures use lasers to treat gum disease without resorting to invasive surgery or wishing on a star. An in-house CEREC system can create porcelain fillings, crowns, and veneers in one visit, and the center’s diagnostic equipment gives the technicians greater insight into patients’ dental, medical, and neuromuscular health.
As passionate as they are about dentistry, the doctors at Concierge Dentistry of Florida like to keep their handiwork a secret between you and them. They do this by using tooth-colored fillings for cavities, which blend in with natural teeth better than the metal amalgams they replace. Porcelain veneers and dental implants resemble natural teeth in both look and function, and Invisalign braces straighten smiles while remaining nearly impossible to see, like a contact lens's ghost.
Whether teeth are in need of a simple cleaning or in need of serious help, patients turn to Dr. Rolando Velasco. He specializes in fixing chipped, broken, and rotted teeth. He also covers unsightly chompers with veneers crafted from porcelain or papier mâché, and fills in smile gaps with dental implants.
Whether lightening the appearance of wrinkles or blasting away dead skin cells, the medical staff at both locations of Mosa Med Spa rely on up-to-date cosmetics equipment. Board-certified physicians Jose I. Garri, MD, DMD and Dr. Ramiro Peréz, Jr. lead a team of medical professionals, all of whom specialize in minimally invasive techniques such as skin-resurfacing microdermabrasion and anti-aging facials. One of the med spa's crowning jewels is the Candela laser, which heats away melanin deep in the follicles to remove hair from nearly any skin type.
