At Pennsylvania Center for Dental Excellence, Dr. Leonard Tau—an American Dental Association member and one of Philadelphia magazine's Top Dentists of 2010—places special emphasis on patient comfort. Patients can indicate their preferences among myriad amenities, such as massage chairs and paraffin wax treatments, as they nibble and sip complimentary refreshments in the waiting room. During treatments, blanketed patients snuggle into massage chairs, unwind with music on loaner iPods, and watch DVDs on a flat-screen TV that obviates the need to bring a dentist to the movie theater.
Along with a team of experienced hygienists and assistants, Drs. Terrance Mahoney and Daniel Klauer keep patients of all ages grinning with general and cosmetic dental treatments that emphasize patient care. They believe it is important for patients to make informed decisions, which is why their website proffers advice and information through a newsletter, a blog, and videos that demonstrate how to properly brush or whittle a stick into a toothpick. Drs. Mahoney and Klauer’s care extends to their community through Give Kids a Smile and Dentistry From The Heart. The dentists also donate services to a local clinic, as well as make trips to Haiti and other impoverished countries to help underserved patients and wind-up novelty teeth.

At Shambaugh Family Dentistry, patients can clean up dingy smiles with a variety of whitening services. The process for acquiring whitening trays (a $350 value) begins with a 20-minute initial consultation. A brief examination ensures that teeth are healthy enough to be beautified, and upper and lower bite impressions are taken. Come back one week later to pick up the trays; it takes about 20 minutes to deliver the whitening trays and learn the instructions. Opt for the Zoom! Whitening treatment (a $475 value) and experience shade-shifting results of at least six to ten shades. After a 20-minute initial appointment, this quick, pain-free process takes just over an hour and involves the application of a scientifically formulated gel that activates under a specially designed Zoom! light. Feel free to kick back and relax as the activated gel makes its way into your teeth, targeting discolorations and transforming smiles from sparkling to most sparklingist. Much like building a cubicle, the entire Zoom! process takes place in-office, which means you'll be exempt from additional take-home whitening regimens.
After earning his doctorate from the University of Nebraska Medical Center College of Dentistry in 2010, Dr. Boateng quickly relocated and settled in Fort Wayne. Here, he and his certified dental assistant, Megan, strive to make patients comfortable while administering services such as fillings, root canals, and extractions that don't involve the hassles of yanking really hard. To nurture a stress-free environment, they clearly communicate each procedure, the need for it, and what the potential alternatives are. Keeping the office immaculate and running smoothly is receptionist Cheryl Trout, whose 20 years of dental experience and friendly demeanor help foster a welcoming atmosphere.
