Heritage Oak Dental's doctors, Shane and Mark Douglas, arm their office with an arsenal of dental technology designed to keep treatments accurate and patients comfortable. Digital imaging uses 3-D technology to map out every tooth crevice, and digital x-rays snap shots of roots while emitting far less radiation than a traditional x-ray machine. Instead of gooey, unpleasant impression gel, Heritage uses digital impressions to create a model of the mouth when new crowns and bridges are needed.
But the patients themselves don't need to worry about all this advanced computer gadgetry; they need only relax. Padded ergonomic chairs in the treatment rooms make that easy, and the bright kid's play area in the lobby keeps moppets entertained with a play kitchen, toys, and a real-time stock-market ticker.
Dr. Nilesh Keshav and his staff have a simple mission: make dental visits as calming as possible. To that end, their office is outfitted with comfort in mind, sporting plush sofas in the reception area and botanical art in treatment rooms. This attention to detail extends to treatments as well, which focus on whatever cosmetic and preventive services are necessary to create beautiful smiles. Once patients are ensconced in cushioned chairs, the courteous staff can tend to their health with comprehensive exams, or restore function with oral inlays, fillings, and veneers. In-office and take-home teeth-whitening solutions brighten smiles by lifting enamel stains and autographs left by famous forks.
Invisalign elite provider Mark Holt corrects aberrant chompers in a vibrant, sports-themed mouthetorium. After traversing the hardwood basketball-like lobby, you'll be given the opportunity to meet the tooth-turning team who will review your dental and medical records and quiz you on Proust trivia. A complete initial exam, including an oral excavation, x-rays (a $177 value), and impressions (a $123 value), uncovers the mystery of which treatment options will best meet your mouth's needs. After discussing your options, you and the doctor can hash out a customized treatment plan, pontificate all financial information, discuss insurance options and payment proposals, and crochet each other's pillows. Groupon-holders also receive $1,200 off the final cost of the full braces or Invisalign treatment if those are determined the best remedies for your orthodontic ailments. The cost of the treatments starts at $4,680.
For Dr. Satbir Kahlon, the only thing more important than ensuring her patients are receiving the most advanced dental treatments is making sure they also have the knowledge needed to secure a healthy future for their smile.

Cutting-edge technology including digital radiographs assist Dr. Kahlon as she safeguards oral health through preventive exams and enhances grins with veneers and dental implants, and Biolase Waterlase laser technology affords her unrivaled precision as she removes decay and bonds fillings sans drilling.
