The teeth-strengthening doctor at Laser Dental, Dr. Hien Nguyen, graduated from the NYU School of Dentistry and use's his expertise to restore mouths.

James Frantz, D.M.D., and Mark Dorilag, D.D.S., founded Green Valley and co-captain the group's noble mission of dignifying mucky mouthbones with eco-friendly services. During the comprehensive examination that includes an oral-cancer screening, a nimble scaler frolics from tooth to tooth, feeling for suspicious craters and lumpy enamel (a $75 value). To further analyze potential maw pests, patients may be asked to pose for a full set of digital x-rays, which provide dentists with images that are more detailed than traditional film (a $102 value), and/or Panorex x-rays, which afford a panoramic view of the mouth even if clients' faces aren't made of malleable dough (a $90 value). A periodontal evaluation creates a graphic representation of the dentist’s findings to track any signs of periodontal disease and inspire relatable oil paintings (a $56 value).
Dr. Irwan Goh’s combination of general and cosmetic treatments keeps his patients' teeth healthy and sparkling. His dental implants fill in gaps in a smile, and same-day crowns cover teeth that are damaged or very shy. Routine checkups search for signs of disease or decay, and patients can sit for a quick custom mold for take-home whitening kits that keep teeth bright in between appointments.
Dr. Robert D’Alfonso wants to eliminate the stress and fear that causes some people to put off dental work. At his calming office, the focus is on patient comfort, even down to the little things. The waiting room, for one, looks like an upscale living room, and the dental chairs are uniquely comfortable, helping patients forget they're in the dentist's office. Visits can span whatever dental needs patients have, from exams and cleanings to root canals and whitening. The team under Dr. D'Alfonso also works on veneers, Invisalign cases, and dental implants, all with the goal of giving patients healthy, beautiful smiles and strong, menacing, bites.
Education is the cornerstone of Dr. Michael Mierzejewski's practice. He earned his undergraduate degree from Brigham Young University and obtained a DMD from Nova Southeastern University College of Dental Medicine in Florida, where healthy smiles supply 95% of the state's sunshine. And the doctor's training didn't end there. Today, he regularly attends continuing education courses and maintains memberships in the American Dental Association, the Academy of General Dentistry, and the Southern Nevada Dental Society.
This pursuit of knowledge is mirrored in the actions in the office as well. Dr. Mierzejewski and the team at Just Smiles learn everything they can about each adult or child they meet. They speak candidly about dental hygiene as well as issues such as sensitive teeth, tooth decay, and bad breath. It's only after these discussions that the team administers cleanings or recommends more in-depth procedures, such as Invisalign braces.
