Dr. Namita T. Chaudhary graduated magna cum laude from the Baltimore College of Dental Surgery, and her specialized education and experience with patrons of all ages shine through during general, cosmetic, and restorative treatments. After sessions, she calls her patients to check up on them and provides her personal cell-phone number so they can ask questions and check if her refrigerator is running. The staff keeps up with the practice's technology by attending courses and seminars, which prepare them to use a laser cavity-detection tool and a ViziLite oral-cancer screen. Sandwiched comfortably between the treatment chair and a toasty blanket, guests open wide while watching movies, or listening to music and taking in the window's sweeping view.
When Dr. David Pinsky opened State of the Art Dental Group in 2001, it was the culmination of a dentistry career that at that point had already comprised nearly 20 years of experience. Now, together with Rustin Levy, DMD, and Ira Reiz, DMD, Pinsky delivers general dentistry and orthodontic services ranging from root canals and extractions to the popular Invisalign teeth-straightening method. Unlike lifelong cave dwellers, the doctors are comfortable exploring the area outside of the mouth—they also provide skin-smoothing injections that reduce the appearance of wrinkles for up to one year.
With hundreds of locations across the country, Right Dental Group represents a collection of oral-healthcare professionals who deliver a variety of quality dental services. The collective places an emphasis on relationship building—meaning patients can confess their most egregious toffee-apple trespasses while receiving a teeth scrubbing delivered with precision and understanding. Each of the dentists is prescreened for a consistent record of excellence and the ability to efficiently locate a cavity in a toothstack. A skilled doctor and staff will skillfully probe forgotten mouth corners, eradicating tartar and expunging plaque from bacterial lairs. The included x-rays will help uncover any oral problem areas that cannot be seen with the shamelessly naked eye. After treatment, clients will be privy to tips that explain the proper brushing and flossing techniques to ward off gum disease and tooth loss, ensuring tongue-stoppers remain firmly rooted to the rest of the skeletal system.
A student of aerospace engineering before earning his extensive dental credentials, Dr. Shin Kim commands a crew of experienced clinicians, making smiles shine as brightly as the moon. For the cleaning option, four X-rays (a $27 value each) first capture the mouth's inner beauty, revealing any issues to be investigated during the comprehensive dental exam, which screens for the overall health of teeth, gums, and any fillings (a $65 value). A hygienist then performs a professional cleaning (a $101 value), scraping away plaque and calculus built up from years of eating math homework. Patients leave the cleaning toting a Lumibrite take-home whitening kit, which uses custom whitening gel and trays to brighten teeth by up to nine shades in two weeks (a $250 value).
The Royal Care Dentistry team—a dentist, an orthodontist, and a dental assistant—help keep chompers healthy for the long run. Dr. Haghighi helps prevent dental decay and fix and painful issues that may arise, while Dr. Heller keeps patients' teeth looking perfect with Invisalign and other teeth-straightening options. Together they treat visitors of all ages, drawing upon years of experience and giving each patient lots of personal attention.
Invisalign straightens crooked chompers through a combination of highly advanced, 3-D computer graphics and the spells of good old-fashioned orthodontia. Three different practices feature orthodontists specially trained and certified in the Invisalign process, which eschews cumbersome braces for clear, removable aligners that are virtually invisible to the unclothed eye. An initial exam, including x-rays, photos, and impressions of your mouth terrain ($325), will pave the way for a flurry of calibrated teeth sheaths that are designed to slowly shift your walnut crackers into perfect alignment. The total cost of an Invisalign treatment varies with each customer (it can run anywhere from $4,000 to $8,000); this Groupon gets you $1,000 to put toward that final cost.
