Dr. Jane L. Dodson and her caring staff maintain and beautify smiles with a gentle chair-side manner in an office lush with sunlight and plant life. They keep patients relaxed and apprised through detailed explanations of each procedure, and the lobby's flat-screen TV plays educational videos. Children can play with in-office kaleidoscopes, and their parents can stock up on gallons of alkaline water, effective for balancing the body's pH or making lemonade milder. Advanced dental technologies sharpen Dr. Dodson's practice. Intraoral cameras capture accurate, up-close shots of individual teeth, and digital x-rays reveal hidden goings-on without exposing patients to the radiation doses characteristic of traditional x-ray equipment.
Calling on more than 40 years of experience, Beachwood native Dr. Daniel Glick and his staff of seasoned technicians polish teeth with general and cosmetic dental services. Families can flock to Dr. Glick's warm, welcoming office, which was designed for his patients' comfort, complete with window-facing chairs that allow patients to admire the green landscape or survey it for soon-to-spout flash mobs. There, they'll also find the latest treatments for everything from gum disease to temporomandibular joint disorder, as well as services tailored to treat dental issues specific to kids and athletes. Dr. Glick is so confident in the care provided by his office that he offers a warranty that covers any damaged sealant, composite filling, crown, or bridge so long as patients maintain their regular six-month checkups and avoid snacking on rocks.
As she plunked accounting formulas into a calculator during another long night of studying, college student Lisa Browning found herself drifting into daydreams about the day she changed someone's life. At the dental practice where she worked part-time, a woman in her mid forties had recently arrived with a mouth filled with dentures. Having worked her way up from receptionist to de facto dental assistant, Browning helped install implants and restore both dental arches with fixed bridgework. At the post op appointment, Browning saw a complete change in the patient?hair done, makeup on, fashionably dressed, and radiating with confidence?all thanks to a new smile. Browning tried, and failed, to derive a similar sense of satisfaction from the dry formulas before her on the textbook page.
Browning soon scrapped accounting, telling her calculator "it's not you, it's me," and enrolling at the Case Western Reserve University School of Dental Medicine. Today, her expertise in general and restorative dentistry?as well as cosmetic treatments?has earned her recurring appearances in the Guide to America's Top Dentists. She is also a member of the Academy of General Dentistry, whose members undergo continual education each year beyond the requirements mandated by state dental boards or federal anti-frowning regulations.
Dentists oversee the operation at Gordon Dental Care: Drs. Peter G. Gordon and Ellen K. Friedman. Even better, each one brings something unique to the table, notably Dr. Gordon's master status from the International Congress of Oral Implantologists, Dr. Friedman's Invisalign certification, and both of their degrees at Case Western Reserve University. Together, the duo and its staff provide an array of dental services, including cleanings, implants, teeth whitenings, and crown procedures.
Looking at his datebook, you would think Dr. Kent S. Lamoreux never gets tired. When he’s not working at his dental practice, he's teaching as an adjunct professor at the Case School of Dental Medicine. When he's not teaching, he donates his time and dental expertise to the Free Medical Clinic of Greater Cleveland. After more than 30 years as a dentist, he tried to give retirement a shot, but quickly found that he enjoyed his work even more than gardening, airplane-model building, beekeeping, or the other hobbies retired people are legally required to take up.
Happily back at work, Dr. Lamoreux’s dental practice benefits from his boundless energy and zeal. When he found he wasn't content with standard extractions and root canals, Dr. Lamoreux learned to cover the full range of dental services, from general dentistry to cosmetic and restorative types. His comprehensive knowledge base means that he can treat patients himself, which is the leading cause of the thick layer of dust on his rolodex of dental specialists.
For 30 years, Dr. Harper and Dr. Gilmore have worked to fix up the smiles of their patients at their University Heights family dental practice. They skillfully perform basic cleanings and exams, fillings, crowns, bridges, root canals, and implants.
