Smith Family Dental's Drs. Steven and Morgan Smith have designed their office to keep patients as comfortable as possible?both during and after appointments. Once in the chair, patients can don pairs of Bose surround-sound headphones and watch movies or shows playing on the ceiling-mounted TVs. Nitrous oxide soothes patients before treatments, especially when it's coupled with one of the office's blankets, pillows. After root canals or fillings, the team can use OraVerse reverse anesthetic, which helps restore feeling to the lips and gums.
The dental professionals at Genesis Dental keep mouths gleaming radiantly with oral procedures performed in a friendly, professional setting. In the one-hour Boost teeth-whitening treatment, patients lay back while a technician applies a bleaching gel to discolored chompers, breaking up stains and leaving teeth bright enough to rival the grins of veteran game-show hosts. The special chemical formula also contains tooth-strengthening potassium nitrate and fluoride, helping to keep mouths fit for leaving love bites on particularly alluring marble statues.
After completing his degree in dentistry, Dr. Daniel West stepped up his game by signing on for an additional 100-plus hours of continuing education, including a residency in dental implants. This expertise comes in handy on a daily basis at his practice, where Dr. West crafts porcelain crowns and veneers in minutes using a special CEREC machine. The doctor also uses technology for preventive care, including an intraoral camera to get a close-up of chompers and digital x-rays to check teeth’s inner chambers for squatting cavities.
Dr. Randall and his staff at Quarry Bend Dental help teeth and gums to health. Before the roughly 80-minute dental exam, Dr. Randall snaps a series of 18 bitewing x-rays and scans soft tissues and gums for potentially cancerous lesions; he'll also gladly consult with any patients interested in cosmetic improvements or sharper tusks. A basic cleaning scours teeth's nooks and crannies, banishing loitering debris from its molar lodgings. At the end of the treatment, the staff hands patients a warm towel to daub their mouths or tie on as a cape to mark a transformation into the Oral Health Avenger.
With a skilled touch and a wealth of experience supplemented with updated training, Dr. Dave Anderson makes those in his chair feel at ease. The surgeon specializes in dental and maxillofacial procedures, though he and his team also dispatch less-intensive treatments, such as Botox injections and oral-cancer screenings. Patients appreciate the practice's high-tech gear, friendly staff, and skillfully conducted services, but Creekside's upsides don't end there. The team cares for patients before and after their surgeries, too, by stocking the office's website with pre- and post-op resources patients can refer to at home.
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.
