The doctors at Oral Surgery South have all the training to back up their straightforward business name—and it's a lot of training. To perform oral and maxillofacial surgery, these medical professionals took on up to six additional years of training as they mastered surgical techniques, anesthesia, and the hanging of many degrees on a single wall. In addition to helping patients with a variety of problems of the mouth, teeth, and face, they also perform aesthetic services, giving their patients youthful looks that complement their healthy smiles.
Dr. Alison Freeman and her skilled team of dental dazzlers illuminate enamel and reinforce self-image with Opalescence Boost whitening treatments. Each one-hour shine session brightens blemished bicuspids with Boost gel, a chemically activated serum that creates gleaming grins without ultraviolet lights or lasers. First, a tooth technician prepares your oral interior and then isolates teeth from their gummy footholds. After mixing the whitening gel, a friendly member of Dr. Freeman's staff gently layers on the polishing potion, which activates to help dissolve dental stains and fortify enamel against erosion and caramel apples.
The trained technicians at Advanced Laser Care dispel unwanted body hair with precise, pulsating beams of light. When targeted at the base of the hair follicle, these laser beams eliminate existing fuzz and help prevent its regrowth over the course of six sessions, on average. The noninvasive treatment yields minimal pain comparable to the snap of a rubber band or the sting of not understanding a children’s riddle.
Dr. Gary H. Mikels believes that the most important factor in any trip to the dentist is trust. With more than 30 years of experience under his belt, he calms jittery nerves with his tranquil chair-side manner and by fielding any mouth-related queries. A specialist in bonded ceramics, he quickly closes gaps between teeth and repairs chips, leaving teeth even for beautiful smiles and the ability to bite sleeping coworkers without leaving incriminating marks. A suite of advanced technology further streamlines visits; an in-house lab quickly manufactures custom implants, digital x-rays speed up the checkup, and an intraoral camera takes panoramic pictures of mouths for easy diagnoses.
Proud lifelong area resident and accomplished dentist Dr. Karen Martin-Phillips dutifully operates a practice built on strong doctor-patient relationships, high-tech equipment, and continuing her education across several different fields of dentistry. A hardworking team of hygienists and administrators staffs an office equipped with an arsenal of sophisticated equipment, including distilled-water dental units, an ultramodern sterilization apparatus, and digital x-rays that reduce radiation exposure and accidental evolution of superpowers by up to 90% over traditional film. The in-house lab swiftly repairs and fashions dental fixtures, and a décor of comfy leather seating in the lobby and violet-colored, sunny treatment rooms ensconces visitors in an aura of welcoming relaxation.
The equipment that Dr. Richard S. Rossman uses in his office represents the most contemporary technology and techniques. Digital x-rays and intraoral cameras snoop for issues where eyes can’t. A diode soft-tissue laser cuts tissues gently and with more precision than a prehistoric hand ax. Heated towels clean mouths after treatment. The modern tools augment Dr. Rossman’s more than 30 years of dental education and practice.
