Dr. Burns and Dr. Jenkins have DDS degrees from the Temple University Kornberg School of Dentistry and the Indiana University School of Dentistry, respectively, and they put that professional training to use at Platinum Dental Care. The doctors work tirelessly to keep up with changes in dental medicine, adopting new techniques and technologies—such as implants—as they develop. While both practitioners promote oral health with a variety of cosmetic and rehabilitative dental procedures including teeth whitening, veneers, and fillings, Dr. Burns focuses on saving teeth through full-mouth rehabilitation and by depositing extra teeth into a piggy bank. Dr. Burns also has a degree in psychology, which helps him empathize with patients and mitigate their concern over dental care.
The founders of Direct White and Brighter Image teamed up more than 10 years ago to form a three-step, at-home teeth-whitening system. Inside their storefronts, skilled techs outfit clients with custom-fit bleaching trays. At the worldwide lab, similarly skilled techs craft custom-fit bleaching trays from at-home impression kits. The trays' snug tooth caps are trimmed along the gum line, which helps to prevent burning of gums and can provide a more consistent whitening than bulkier trays. Bleaching-gel pens supplement each kit, providing easy touchups that break down stains left behind by wine, tobacco, and gnawing on coffee mugs.
Alpenglow Dental's team of five practitioners—all Utah natives—track down the latest research and employ modern technology to maintain oral health at four local practices. Their spectrum of services encompasses many mouth-based needs, whether patients seek a regular cleaning or need veneers to conceal misaligned teeth. ClearCorrect invisible braces use removable aligners instead of metal wires for straighter smiles and more intimidating growls. The dentists are also able to lift stains from age, coffee consumption, and smoking with whitening treatments.
Each of Professional Dental’s dentists attends lectures, conventions, and classes to further their knowledge of new techniques and cutting-edge technology. They put this knowledge to use during cosmetic and restorative procedures at 10 clinics with extended and weekend hours. At the start of appointments, the dentists thoroughly review the patient’s medical history for anything that could impact health. During the treatments, movies help distract patrons or allow them to watch the scary parts of The Adventures of Milo and Otis with an unshakeable doctor.
