Though Dr. Jasmeen Goyal of Great Smiles is passionate about treating people of all ages, what she may enjoy the most is working with children. Fittingly, the children's play area in the office brims with stuffed toys, an Xbox console, and cartoon channels on the flat-screen TV. Dr. Goyal aims to set her young patients on lifelong paths toward excellent dental health with her gentle chairside manner and preventive—rather than corrective—approach.
Invisalign straightens crooked chompers through a combination of highly advanced, 3-D computer graphics and the spells of good old-fashioned orthodontia. Orthodontists at the five participating locations are specially trained and certified in the Invisalign process, which eschews cumbersome braces for clear, removable aligners that are virtually invisible to the unclothed eye. An initial exam, including x-rays, photos, and impressions of your mouth terrain, will pave the way for a flurry of calibrated teeth sheaths designed to slowly shift your walnut crackers into perfect alignment. The total cost of an Invisalign treatment varies with each customer (it can run anywhere from $3,500 to $8,000); this Groupon gets you $1,000 to put toward that final cost.

After years of treating his own patients, Dr. K. Michael Dossett founded his multi-office practice, overseeing skilled dentists who treat teeth in Dallas, Frisco, Hurst, McKinney, and Plano. Dr. Dossett selected his dentists carefully, taking pains to choose pros who not only exhibited excellent medical technique but who also had exemplary bedside manner. His goal was to assemble a team by forming dental floss into a lasso and corralling free-range dentists whose undivided focus on each patient, and whose level of personal care, matched his own. By prioritizing communication and friendliness, Dr. Dossett has fashioned a quintet of offices where clients are comfortable and their thoughts are heard.
Drs. Robert Limosnero and Sandhya Krishan, who helm A to Z Family & Cosmetic Dentistry, investigate cavities and prevent future enamel ailments with an eye toward easing the anxieties of nervous patients. Sensitive to the fear many feel about visiting the dentist and having their teeth replaced with jellybeans, the dentists and their staff of hygienists and assistants help patients relax with optional medicinal measures that include intravenous sedatives and relaxing nitrous oxide gas. The twosome then get to work with services such as dental checkups, porcelain veneers, and dentures, using tooth-saving machinery, including digital x-rays, dental lasers, and intraoral cameras.
Each person on staff at Brookshire Dental works to maximize comfort, whether by flipping on cable TV for patients undergoing treatments or bringing blankets to drape over chilly legs. Though the team spaces appointments to minimize idle time, waiting patients can catch up on work or plan work meetings around their coworkers' astrological signs with free wireless Internet access. The staff also takes advantage of advances in dental technology, bustling between digital x-ray machines and intraoral cameras.
Floss Dental's dentists and surgeons, many of whom are often featured on local TV stations, may specialize in preventative care, but they also beautify mouths with cosmetic- and reconstructive-surgery services, such as veneers, Invisalign, and dental implants. They harness panoramic x-rays to get a complete view of the teeth, and they broadcast these pictures on a TV, which helps them explain which treatments are necessary and to point out which tooth would look best with an inlaid diamond chip.
Floss Dental encourages patients to keep coming back by offering free Invisalign consultations and free Boost whitening once a year to those who maintain their regular cleanings. Flat-screen TVs and satellite radio entertain patients during their procedures, and sedation dentistry keeps them free from anxiety in a dream-like state.
