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.
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.
Within Smile Studio DFW's meticulous office, a special teeth-whitening contraption stands at the ready to brighten smiles. Armed with a trademarked precision Applia-Brush, guests can ready their teeth with peroxide gel without worrying about troubling their gums. They then relax as beams of cool blue LED light wash over stains, activating the gel and whitening teeth up to eight shades. The process is faster and more effective than at-home whitening kits or toothpaste infused with white paint, and the results typically last up to a year.

Along with medical-grade skincare services, Medford can implant upper layers of skin with micropigments in permanent cosmetic sessions, eliminating the need for daily makeup applications or naps in a box of crayons.

Medford practices traditional makeup application techniques with her micropigments, as well as camouflaging scars and adding beauty marks.
