Dentists at other clinics boast of having studied implantology under the world-renowned Dr. Arun Garg. Dr. Garg began his practice at Center for Dental Implants of South Florida after two decades of building a sterling reputation in academic dentistry. During those years, he published more than 100 medical articles and wrote several textbooks that have been translated into eight different languages. He also founded the American Dental Implant Association, where he still serves as president.
Dr. Garg and his associates handle services ranging from general checkups to advanced implant procedures. The dental team was among the first to adopt technologies such as surgical lasers and the cone-beam CT scanner for facial imaging.
Drs. Andrew Forrest and Juan Alberto met at the University of Florida's College of Dentistry, where they were studying periodontics and prosthodontics, respectively. After graduating over ten years ago, they started Premier Dental Group and began recruiting dentists to join their staff. Together, the group of six professionals collectively speaks five languages and provides an array of modern dentistry services, specializing in cosmetic, restorative, orthodontic, and implant dentistry. Premier Dental Group boasts two prosthodontists, an orthodontist, a periodontist, and two general dentists, all focused on providing personalized care and providing oral health information.
Dr. Ernest DiGeronimo views himself as an artist, and his cosmetic and reconstructive surgeries as his works of art. He trained under Dr. Ralph Millard?considered by many plastic surgeons to be the father of modern plastic surgery?and has perfected his craft over the course of more than 30 years and thousands of procedures. He and his staff practice their trade in two pristine operating rooms, performing procedures that span the whole body, from face lifts and Botox injections to breast augmentation and liposuction. He also stays abreast of current aesthetic technological advances, as evidenced by his noninvasive laser treatments that include skin resurfacing and radio frequency skin tightening.
If his Boston University education and years of experience has taught Dr. David Bitchatchi one thing, it’s that dental patients want to feel relaxed during procedures. As a result, he has designed Hollywood Center for Cosmetic Dentistry to keep patients safe and comfortable during general, cosmetic, and restorative treatments. The good vibes begin outside the office, where a fountain burbles amid myriad plants and flowers. Inside, hardwood floors and wooden fixtures complement cream-colored walls that spill into the treatment rooms. There, digital panoramic x-rays reveal mouthscapes while reducing the radiation exposure that is characteristic of more traditional x-rays and the birth of most superheroes. Apart from setting patients at ease, the doctor also wants to keep them highly informed about their procedures. To that end, he has devoted a private conference room to consultations, where he and patients discuss possible treatment options.
Routine is paramount for the doctors at Sheridan Dental Care. Of course, the crew wants patients to brush and floss multiple times daily—but just as important? Regular check-ups. Focused on preventing tooth decay, gum disease, and oral cancers, Sheridan’s staff of hygienists and dentists carefully clean and examine teeth, preferably every six months, to minimize the impact of possible diseases. They snap x-rays when necessary, using a digital panoramic machine designed to reduce exposure to radiation.
Beyond the bi-yearly grind of check-ups, x-rays, and cleanings, patients can also stop by the office for cosmetic procedures, including teeth whitening, braces, and dental implants to replace missing teeth or make small tongues look bigger. Less popular—but still important—services include fillings, bondings, and root canals, when necessary.
