Drs. Michael and Lindsay Grosso and the team at Grosso Orthodontics usher straighter smiles into the world with different types of braces. Traditional metal braces come smaller than they did in the early 20th century or the Iron Age, whereas modern clear Invisalign aligners are barely detectable. The Grosso gang understands that a crooked smile isn't just aesthetically unpleasing?it may also signify internal problems with bite and mouth structure.
A two-story castle, jumbo stuffed animals, and Xbox video games—these aren’t what most people picture when they think of a dentist’s office. But these amenities and more are found at Coastal Kids Dental & Braces, whose founder and mother of two Dr. Isabel aims to make going to the dentist fun. She and a skilled staff of pediatric dentists and hygienists make every effort to put children at ease and answer their questions about the tooth fairy’s interest rates. In rooms decorated with galactic, naval, and underwater themes, these experts cater to their pintsize patients while assessing oral health and evaluating the need for orthodontics. The patients themselves can watch movies on flat-screen televisions while they swish with fluoride and open wide.
Positive Energy's staff melts away stress with custom massages, facials, and body treatments infused with natural ingredients. At each kneading session, a licensed massage therapist removes knots from muscles like a master sailor as soft music caresses the eardrums. Facials tailor Dermalogica products to individual skin types, and gentleman?s spa treatments soothe rugged exteriors with massages and facials.
Nestled in a scenic spot southeast of Sea Pines Circle, Distinctive Dentistry has kept Hilton Head chompers in tip-top shape for the past 25 years. Dr. Shelley Irving Murphy helms the practice, complementing preventative care with cosmetic treatments. As a certified Invisalign provider, she equips patients with translucent aligners that gradually shift teeth into a single-file line. She consults with patients and works alongside hygienists inside sunlit rooms that overlook trees and nature. Meanwhile, in the facility's spacious waiting room, a stone waterfall greets visitors and serves as a comforting reminder to gargle lucky pennies before each dental checkup.
At Miller Dental Group, Savannah natives Dr. Robert B. Miller & Dr. Jan Cossar help patients take charge of their own dental destinies by keeping them informed about their current conditions and educated about their options for treatment. To do so accurately,the staff employs digital x-rays and intraoral cameras, keeping track of the ins and outs of each tooth, revealing the extent of decay, and probing the depth of cavities.
Once patients make an informed decision about how to proceed, Dr. Miller & Dr. Jan keep them comfortable throughout treatments such as dental implants, composite fillings, and root canals. Each treatment room contains a television to keep patients' minds occupied.
For Dr. Karen Cooper, cosmetic dentistry is more than just outfitting mouths with veneers and implants: it's designing a smile that truly complements patients' features. This passion is why she meets with each patient personally, carefully charting their facial features and dental goals to design a plan just for them. This may involve minor tweaking such as a teeth-whitening treatment, or a major overhaul with a full-mouth restoration or a Mona Lisa smile transplant. Whatever the treatment, her staff doles out the latest technology—including Invisalign and Cerec one-day crowns—and pampers clients with warm blankets, DVDs, and paraffin treatments.
