Drs. Brian and E. Glenn Clark draw from a combined 40 years of dental experience to preserve gums and their enamel tenants. During the initial visit, x-rays lay bare oral predicaments such as bone loss and trapped peanut butter, employing a digital technique that uses less radiation than conventional radiography. A dental exam follows, in which a tooth technician ousts tartar, checks for cavities, and cleans tusks with professional care. During the second appointment, clients receive four 15-minute Zoom! whitening treatments, using trays prepared during the initial visit. A chair-side collaboration between whitening gel and Zoom! light penetrates stains and disarms discoloration with charming vaudevillian banter, restoring the teeth's burnish.
During the exam at Jefferson Dental, which welcomes walk-ins, one of the dentists from the smile-savvy staff ventures into facial caves in search of tooth decay and gum disease. A skilled technician then snaps x-ray pictures, uncovering hidden problems to use as blackmail. Opting to add cleaning ensures that a whirlpool of floss and paste separates debris, plaque, and tartar from enamel and that fangs look more polished than a socialite dipped in wax.
If there is one word that describes Active Dental, it is modern. The Baylor College of Dentistry–trained doctors at each of the two practices scan teeth with digital x-rays, display cavities on chair-side flat-screen TVs using intra-oral cameras, and light up their work with Helios technology, LED dental rays designed to focus on mouths instead of shining in eyes.
As the eponymous experts at Dallas Dental Specialists, Dr. Moore and Dr. Milenbaugh understand that good oral health goes way beyond bright smiles and straight teeth. As a periodontist, Dr. Moore takes special care of mouths’ soft tissues, helping stave off the associated troubles of gum disease, including heart and respiratory disease, diabetes, and pregnancy complications. Beyond fighting disease, the duo also handles a full complement of dental procedures, from cosmetic work, such as teeth whitening and custom crowns, to more advanced dentistry, including implants, oral surgery, and vampire-fang removal. Adults and teens alike can also visit with the specialists for orthodontic regimens including traditional metal braces and clear Invisalign straighteners. No matter who is in the chair, the Dallas Dental Specialists team is always willing to help keep anxious patients calm; they frequently offer simple tips and tricks, such as throat spray to hinder gag reflexes, as well as more intense treatments, including sedation.
