Though the patients at CNS Dental are all human, you still might catch a glimpse of a german shepherd mix. Jacob can occasionally be found alongside Dr. Cara Schantz, calming patients at the office on his days off from working as a certified therapy dog. Dr. Schantz's altruism doesn't just extend to Jacob, who makes regular appearances at the Powhatan Nursing Home courtesy of Fairfax Pets on Wheels. She also volunteers her dental services to Mission of Mercy projects in Virginia.
Back at Dr. Schantz’s home base, shimmering aqua tiles, mod-style chairs, and golden chandeliers that resemble models of atoms at a school for rich children adorn the waiting room. The retro, space-age feel gives way to the simplicity and natural light of the treatment rooms, where patients open wide for cleanings and exams. Dr. Schantz spends the rest of her office hours performing cosmetic and restorative treatments. An onsite oral surgeon places implants, performs extractions, and treats temporomandibular joint (TMJ) issues.
Invisalign straightens crooked chompers through a combination of highly advanced, 3-D computer graphics and the spells of good old-fashioned orthodontia. Three different practices feature orthodontists 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 ($325), will pave the way for a flurry of calibrated teeth sheaths that are 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 $4,000 to $8,000); this Groupon gets you $1,000 to put toward that final cost.

Since 1992, United Dental Group has been building a network of specialized medical professionals across the world. With background-checked, CPR-certified dentists now in multiple branches across the country, the group has set its sights on global expansion, opening multiple centers in Korea. Each center maintains its commitment to quality by selecting staff with varied medical specialties and requiring them to obtain 15–30 continuing-education credits and 5 underwater-basket-weaving credits each year.
In addition to thorough, thoughtful patient care, United Dental Group is devoted to giving back to the community. Its charitable efforts began at its founding, when dentists offered free care to patients with hearing difficulties, and continue today with donations of medical devices to North Korea through the Red Cross.
DC Dental Spa's dentists and technicians restore teeth's snowy-white pelts with Colgate chairside teeth-whitening treatments that take just over an hour. Layers of pH-activated, 36% hydrogen-peroxide gel wash away stains, working quickly without relying on a UV lamp or the unsteady beams of a whitening flashlight. Technicians slather on gel in three 15-minute sessions, using gingival barriers to prevent splashing it on gums, then using suction and rinsing to remove residue. Afterward, teeth prove notably whiter when posing for family photos or growling at postmen the family dog has befriended.
