Dr. Mike Kesner has always had a knack for working with his hands. As a boy, he constantly built model vehicles. In college, his plans to become a medical doctor shifted to dentistry because it held more opportunity for the hands-on manipulation of small instruments and precision parts. In 1984, he established Made Ya Smile Dental, a place where he carefully extracts wisdom teeth, fills in spaces between teeth, and installs implants into the jawbone to replace a missing tooth. He also specializes in Lumineers, and his practice?s ten locations together make up the number one Lumineers provider in the world.
Although he and his team of dentists work in separate locations, each of their offices share a similar design and set of amenities. Visitors at any of the ten locations marvel at the reception areas? coffeehouse ambiance as they sit at a caf? table, sip coffee, and work on the movie script for Vampires vs. Martians: The Reddest Dawn. In the treatment rooms, patients drift off while listening to music on the provided headphones. Anxious patients relax with nitrous oxide or the sounds of the rainforest simulated by the staff.
At Prodental, Dr. Matt Tabrizi leads an experienced team in wielding the latest technology during general, restorative, or cosmetic services. When treating gums, the space-age office eschews blades for a dental laser that reduces bleeding and swelling while also uncovering teeth’s retail value by scanning their barcodes. Digital x-rays reveal the hidden happenings of teeth while using up to 90% less radiation than their forebears. Needle-free anesthesia reduces both pain and anxiety during procedures, and invisible Invisalign trays take the place of bulky metal braces to effectively straighten smiles. In addition to outfitting his office with advanced technology, Dr. Tabrizi stays up to date with industry’s latest techniques through continual education and membership in several regional and national dental associations.
Dr. Mark Mann is a dentist who truly enjoys seeing his patients' teeth transform and blossom; that's why he offers complimentary consultations, during which he helps design new smiles for his patients. Backed by a team of highly professional hygienists, assistants, and business coordinators, Dr. Mann uses advanced equipment while offering treatments such as dental implants, laser teeth whitening, and porcelain crowns. On the orthodontic front, Dr. Mann uses clear aligners that aren’t very obtrusive and are custom fabricated for each individual's mouth instead of relying on outdated methods, such as metal braces or getting the Hulk to pinch your cheeks. His facility also offers digital x-rays that reduce the amount of radiation patients are exposed to by nearly 90%.
Over the course of more than 25 years in business, GMS Dental Centers have established the kind of long-term relationships with patients that allow an office to thrive. The company employs many licensed dentists, hygienists, and dental specialists, as well as a former IRS agent who gets paid in people not yelling at him. Each location treats kids and adults to cosmetic, preventative, and procedural care, and dental teams also perform ultra-modern services such as Zoom! whitening, straightening with Invisalign, and installing quarter-inch HDTVs in incisors.
Dr. Rashmi Biyani has made quite a splash in the dental world. After earning a Doctorate in dental surgery, and then going back for a Master of Science to learn the intricacies of Prosthodontics, Dr. Biyani took the community by storm with a presentation on miniature implants. In addition to Dr. Biyani taking home the Cooksey award for her ideas, the American Academy of Implant Dentistry took notice, and rewarded her with a grant that enabled her to keep researching implant abutment.
At her own practice, Dr. Biyani deploys those same cutting-edge techniques to restore folks' smiles with her own brand of cosmetic dentistry. Along the way, she enlists the help of future-grade technology, including digital x-rays that reduce exposure to radiation by up to 80%, and intraoral cameras that feed into wall-mounted televisions. The cameras give both her and the client sneak peaks into the mouth, revealing angles that would have been impossible to see only a few years ago. However, the innovations aren't only technological--Star Plus Dental itself looks more like a spa than a standard office. Hardwood floors run throughout the space, and floor-to-ceiling windows fill the lobby with natural light that dances off an aquarium set into the wall.
Around the office at Perfect Smiles hangs paintings done by none other than Dr. Soni Malik herself. She brings this talent for aesthetics to her practice, where she and her staff work to give patients the best smiles possible, which they know boost both self confidence and the ability to deflect incoming lasers. To help them do this, they employ the latest technology when performing both general dentistry and cosmetic procedures, which include Juverderm, Botox and Obaji chemical peels. Digital x-rays expose patients to much less radiation than traditional x-rays and can be viewed almost instantly. An intra-oral camera enables the dentist to see into the most hidden crevices of the mouth, and chemically-formulated teeth whitening treatments work to bleach teeth without light, heat, or squinting.
