Dr. Hema Patel, a member of the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry, headlines Smile Plus Dentistry’s grin-cleansing gang who stem the tide of tooth decay, plaque, and tartar buildup through comprehensive dental care. The comprehensive checkup begins with a visual exam that scans chatterboxes for noticeable wear, troublesome tooth craters, and Charleston Chew accumulation (a $70 value). A set of x-rays allows Dr. Patel to gaze deeper inside teeth to unveil the appearance of cavities or the progress of decay (a $90 value), and a cleaning (a $116 value) polishes away any dental detritus so that each gumstone shines like the top of Mr. Clean’s head. The enamel enlightenment can be continued at home with a whitening kit, which brightens teeth with trays and bleaching gel that can be worn while sleeping or during the day (a $150 value).
Dr. Precilyn B. Silvestre leads the team at Gorgeous Smile Dental in refurbishing smiles across two stylishly appointed offices.

The latest technology—including intraoral cameras and low-radiation digital x-rays—aid Dr. Joshi and her staff during services that include crowns, teeth whitening, root canals, and orthodontics.

Dr. Scott Nguyen’s desire to give his patients the best possible care leads him to attain more than four times the required number of continuing-education hours each year.

At Sunnysmile Dental, Dr. Nguyen flexes his skills alongside his team, where they makes treatments such as root canals and laser teeth whitening as comfortable as possible.
