After years of treating his own patients, Dr. K. Michael Dossett founded his multi-office practice, overseeing skilled dentists who treat teeth in Dallas, Frisco, Hurst, McKinney, and Plano. Dr. Dossett selected his dentists carefully, taking pains to choose pros who not only exhibited excellent medical technique but who also had exemplary bedside manner. His goal was to assemble a team by forming dental floss into a lasso and corralling free-range dentists whose undivided focus on each patient, and whose level of personal care, matched his own. By prioritizing communication and friendliness, Dr. Dossett has fashioned a quintet of offices where clients are comfortable and their thoughts are heard.
Drs. Robert Limosnero and Sandhya Krishan, who helm A to Z Family & Cosmetic Dentistry, investigate cavities and prevent future enamel ailments with an eye toward easing the anxieties of nervous patients. Sensitive to the fear many feel about visiting the dentist and having their teeth replaced with jellybeans, the dentists and their staff of hygienists and assistants help patients relax with optional medicinal measures that include intravenous sedatives and relaxing nitrous oxide gas. The twosome then get to work with services such as dental checkups, porcelain veneers, and dentures, using tooth-saving machinery, including digital x-rays, dental lasers, and intraoral cameras.
Each person on staff at Brookshire Dental works to maximize comfort, whether by flipping on cable TV for patients undergoing treatments or bringing blankets to drape over chilly legs. Though the team spaces appointments to minimize idle time, waiting patients can catch up on work or plan work meetings around their coworkers' astrological signs with free wireless Internet access. The staff also takes advantage of advances in dental technology, bustling between digital x-ray machines and intraoral cameras.
Dental pros detail teeth with general and cosmetic treatments at the practice's two locations. Staff members are guided by a commitment revamping smiles in a professional, efficient, and caring manner, and are fluent in both English and Spanish. Extended weekday and Saturday hours suit working clients, and same-day emergency care provides immediate treatments when a molar's tennis elbow flares up.
Dr. Scott Staffel and his friendly staff maintain chomper health through a vast array of dental services. During the examination, mouths participate in a series of impressions, which help to forge custom take-home trays that patients will fill with whitening bleach or pureed light bulbs to help brighten smiles for the next six months. A skilled technician then snaps a series of full mouth x-rays to reveal the hidden goings-on of roots and otherwise undetectable decay. In the absence of periodontal involvement, a hygienist thoroughly scrubs tusks in a flurry of floss and foam, bathing away unsightly plaque and tartar. After intraoral photos, Dr. Staffel begins a thorough examination and delves into mouth caves in search of oral cancers, tooth decay, and recalcitrant gummy worms. Dr. Staffel's Whitening for Life program ensures that his smile-savvy staff continues to replenish stocks of whitening gel each time the patient reschedules.
A highly skilled dentist, Dr. John M. Vinings turns on smile beams with a tag team of whitening technologies. Patients who opt to illuminate pearly whites at home receive a set of custom trays and Opalescence gel. For approximately two weeks, clients wear the trays a few hours a day to fight off stains caused by red wine, coffee, and bobbing for apples in brackish pools. For faster results, in-office LumaCool technology whitens chompers in about an hour with a light-activated gel that bleaches away discoloration, leaving mouth squares whiter than a ghost who just saw himself. Dr. Vinings is committed to staying on top of advancements in the dental field, putting in 200–300 hours of continuing education each year.
