Dr. Bruce Jacobs opened his Hallandale office in 1976 and has stayed in place ever since, which is precisely the opposite of what he does to gunky mouth-bone buildup on a regular basis—that is to say, he removes it. An active member of both the Florida and American Dental Associations, Dr. Jacobs is dedicated to restoring smiles to their pre-pursed health and beauty. With today's Groupon rolled into a squeezable tube, a meticulous cleaning gives the heave-ho to any tartar and plaque buildup, clearing the way for future generations of inevitable meal remnants. A general exam and full set of oral x-rays will provide the private detection necessary to determine if any no-good cavities or gum disease have been messing around on your territory, while a lead apron wrapped around the torso makes a powerful fashion statement for spring. You'll leave with a smile bright enough to melt hearts, including your own, so be careful around mirrors.
Sunlight floods through oversize windows in Dr. Despaigne’s treatment rooms, creating a warm atmosphere that helps put patients at ease. Also putting minds and mouth at ease is Dr. Despaigne and his associates' vast expertise. Before opening his practice, Dr. Despaigne served as an instructor in operative and comprehensive dentistry at New York University, and his knowledge of preventive and holistic dentistry has led him to be featured on numerous radio and television programs. Each day at Despaigne Dental Associates, Dr. Despaigne and his associates brighten their patients’ smiles any number of ways, from whitening chompers with a bleaching formula to covering up chipped and unsightly teeth with eye-catching veneers or smiley-face stickers. And to help him in his quest to thwart decay, his office employs the latest dental technology, including intraoral cameras and digital-imaging devices.
For 30 years the team at Center for Laser Esthetic Dentistry has stayed on top of the latest technological developments in their field, a habit that has helped them build their service menu into what it is today. Instead of relying on their eyes, for instance, they use Diagnodent to spot cavities and tooth decay. When it's necessary to drill, then, they use a Waterlase tool that produces less heat and vibrations than metal drills, helping reduce discomfort. And instead of traditional x-rays, they use digital x-rays to spy on the inner goings-on of teeth while emitting less radiation.
