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.
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.
Dr. Iranpour and his staff of hygienists and assistants at Today's Dentistry understand that going to the dentist can be a stressful experience for some. To help ease anxiety, they've installed a soothing waterfall in the office, filled the air with therapeutic scents, and keep warm paraffin wax onsite, into which patients can dip their hands or unpaid parking tickets. During procedures, such as bonding, root canals, or whitening treatments, patients can watch their favorite film through virtual glasses while lounging atop massaging chairs.
For more than 35 years, dentists at American Dental Centers have polished pearly whites and prevented dental disease with thorough exams. At each of the 14 locations that dot Northern and Central Ohio, patients walk in or schedule appointments so they don’t have to scrape off plaque using chew toys. The center maintains a 24-hour phone line so that patients can arrange to have emergencies treated as soon as possible, and it also offers a Forever White program, in which patients pay a one-time fee and then receive take-home bleaching treatments for as long as they attend their regular three- or six-month check-ups.
