Following in her father’s footsteps, Dr. Diana Correa Velosa became a dentist more than 25 years ago. Continuing-education classes have strengthened her skill set for such procedures as wisdom-teeth extractions, root canals, porcelain crowns, and dentures. Outside of the office, Dr. Velosa participates in summer mission trips and dispenses free dental care in Central and South America. She and her team maintain a friendly demeanor at all times, unlike the host of a children's TV show—who once in a while must go to the DMV.
Since 1990, Dr. Thomas Winegarden, DDS, and his supporting hygienists have restored and maintained the health of Fresno-area smiles in a calm and compassionate atmosphere. The office?s advanced dental equipment includes a laser cavity-detection device and an intraoral camera, which reveals the mouth's inner workings, including mint Chiclets pretending to be teeth. Friendly office assistants accommodate busy patients with same-day appointments when available and extended hours on Monday and Wednesday.
Dr. Byron L. Reintjes and his staff of expert hygienists employ state-of-the-art technology ranging from intraoral cameras to computer generated crowns and veneers in their on-going quest to promote healthy smiles and cure humans born with beaks. Tending to teeth in need of general, cosmetic, or reconstructive treatment, Dr. Byron expertise is matched only by his chair-side manner, as he takes the time to carefully analyze his data and listen to each patient’s input before developing a treatment plan. This dedication to patient comfort is reflected in the modern aesthetic of the family-friendly office. Relaxing massage chairs knead away trepidation in nervous patients, while complimentary blankets keep teeth from chattering with cold.
The dentists and aestheticians at Dental Spa on First combine forces to help realize a wide range of beauty and health goals. Dr. Amin and his team examine mouths for signs of disease, straighten crooked chompers with Invisalign, and remove unruly wisdom teeth. The staff aims to relax clients during appointments by covering them with blankets for warmth, massaging their hands, and playing movies that aren’t about famous car alarms. The aestheticians, on the other hand, snip off split ends, apply makeup, and remove dead skin with chemical peels. In a private room with earthen-hued walls and abstract artwork, massage therapists glide their hands along muscles, unraveling knots and relieving achy joints.
Catherine A. Lambetecchio, DDS, practices all forms of dentistry, but she specializes in whitening smiles. She uses a combination of a lightening chemicals and light exposure to brighten up teeth, offering both an intensive in-office laser treatments and take-home kits. She also performs regular checkups, and can help patients find long-lasting solutions to cavities with composite crowns that look natural. She continues to hone her skills and technological knowledge as an instructor at the Northern California Institute of Cosmetic Dentistry.
Invisalign straightens crooked chompers with a combination of highly advanced, 3-D computer graphics and the spells of old-fashioned orthodontia. The Invisalign process eschews cumbersome braces for clear, removable aligners that are virtually invisible to the unclothed eye. A two-hour or less initial consultation, including x-rays, photos, and impressions of your mouth terrain, paves the way for a flurry of calibrated teeth sheaths that are designed to slowly shift walnut crackers into perfect alignment. The total cost of an Invisalign treatment varies for each customer (it can run anywhere from $2,000 to $8,000); this Groupon gets you $1,000 toward that final cost. View some Invisalign FAQs here.
