Fewer than 400 dentists around the world can currently claim accredited membership in the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry, but Dr. Dennis Lichorwic is determined to add one to their ranks. In the process, he's submitted to a multiyear system of peer review that includes written and oral exams and in-depth clinical case studies that are scrutinized by the members of the Academy.
This passion for continual education has helped make his practice the nine-time winner of Emerald Coast Magazine's Best Dental Practice award. Along with his partner Dr. Julia Sprang and their friendly staff of hygienists and dental assistants, Lichowic keeps up with new technologies to treat patients with popular new procedures such as Invisalign teeth-straightening treatments and ultra-quick Zoom! whitening.
Meanwhile, patients say aah in a pair of offices whose waiting areas, despite their stately exteriors, evoke nothing so much as a posh family room. Carafes of coffee sit atop a coffee bar in the waiting room, a flat-screen TV hangs over a fireplace that sucks pre-appointment anxieties from the air, and wooden floors lessen the institutional feel of treatment rooms.
At Dentalville, a staff of professional gurus calms jangling nerves in wary adults and children with friendly, comfort-focused patient care. The dentist performs a thorough periodontal probing to test the resiliency of teeth, gums, and vestigial tongue tentacles, noting the locations of trouble spots and old dental work. The mouth-bone specialist then screens for oral cancer, cavities, and imbalances in patients' bites with a 60-second corncob-chewing test.
A Henderson native with more than 25 years experience providing cosmetic, restorative, and implant dentistry, Dr. Samuel Savage and his talented team design and execute dazzling reasons to smile. Whether patients are curious about Invisalign, or already own perfectly ordered mouth pearls, a comprehensive oral exam and thorough teeth cleaning help to ensure mouth-knives continue to perform according to their manufacturer’s specifications. After manually checking for signs of decay, a set of panoramic and full mouth x-rays provide the dental doyens with insight into each tooth’s inner workings and the locations of hidden time capsules, helping reveal possible below the surface problem areas. Equipped with cable TV, music, and a refreshing lack of chainsaws, Dr. Savage’s exam rooms help patients undergo their tusk-fortifying treatment with minimal stress and maximum comfort.

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).
The technicians at Above and Beyond Us help clients tailor their birthday suits using noninvasive radio frequency and infrared technologies. Fluctuations in weight, the natural aging process, and relentless bullying from gravity can cause skin to lose its elasticity. To counteract these influences, laser technicians and anti-aging specialists recommend radio-frequency treatments, which restore smoothness and bounce to areas that have begun to droop. They also point clients to infrared sauna and vibration-platform sessions that temporarily boost metabolism and lymphatic drainage.
