After growing up in Indiana, Dr. Jessica Ransom performed oral surgeries at a non-profit dental center in Detroit, took an immersion-style Spanish course in Puebla, Mexico, and eventually settled in Texas. Nowadays, she performs oral surgeries and converses easily with Spanish- and English-speaking patients at her Houston clinic: Rocky Creek Dental Care. She and her team specialize in preventative care, administering cleanings, sealants, and fluoride treatments in order to keep teeth from fleeing to more promising mouths. They also finesse smiles with cosmetic treatments, which range from veneers to whitening. To ensures that each procedure employs the latest techniques and technology, Dr. Ransom regularly attends continuing education seminars.
Normally a doctor doesn't want to make a patient cry, but sometimes it's a good thing. White Smiles Orthodontics' doctor said that one of his greatest successes was when a bride wept tears of joy upon seeing her improved smile before her wedding. The orthodontist tends to patients of all ages, fixing their smiles with a variety of services ranging from surgery to barely perceptible Invisalign, Clearguide, and ClearCorrect braces.
The office keeps patients comfortable during their visits with flat-screen TVs and Sonos music entertainment. It also offers patients Keurig drinks and bottled water.

At Preferred Dental Spa, tooth whisperers apply a specialty Zoom! gel onto chompers, which then bathe in focused, intense light in three 15-minute cycles. The 45-minute service causes minimal discomfort, if any, and brightens teeth up to eight shades more efficiently than holding a flashlight between teeth. Zoom! reports that with careful upkeep, results can last for years.
Oral surgeon J. Enrique Tabarani helms Shadow Creek Oral & Facial Surgery, where he treats ailments from missing teeth to cleft palates and specializes in dental implants. Dental implants start with a titanium post implanted in the jawbone; this sturdy foundation functions as a root for false teeth, enhancing the stability of crowns and bridges. Dr. Tabarani's treatments extend beyond that, too, encompassing wisdom teeth removal and jaw surgery, which help correct severe overbites or underbites. The doctor also donates his expertise to Latin American children, in collaboration with a variety of nonprofits.
The office is located within Shadow Creek, which provides services such as botox, juvederm, chemical peel, skin-tightening, and photofacials.
