With an advanced degree in orthodontics and TMJ treatment in dentistry from the University of Minnesota School of Dentistry under her belt, Dr. Delia Dall' Arancio and Dr. Regina Blevins adjust smiles until they project even more smile. The initial exam, including x-rays, photos, and strategizing about a dental regimen, will set the course for teeth calibrators designed to slowly shift walnut crackers into alignment. Patients are encouraged to ask questions about their particular treatment, including how much peanut butter will be involved. For the toothy task of fang modification, you get $1,000 toward any traditional full set of braces priced at $5,700 or more or $1,000 toward any individualized Invisalign treatment priced at $6,500 or more.

The experienced tooth technicians at Kinney and Musser brighten smiles with modern technology and a philosophy of preventative maintenance over corrective procedures. The visit begins with a comprehensive dental examination, during which the dentist will spelunk into face caverns in search of tooth decay, signs of oral cancer, and Lego buildup. Afterwards, a skilled technician snaps four bitewing x-rays and a panoramic x-ray to reveal the goings-on between tooth and gum, as well as exposing any otherwise invisible tooth decay. A hygienist then bathes mouth bones in a whirlpool of floss and foam, sloughing off plaque jackets and removing tartar tiaras.
Twin Cities native Dr. Wallace Lunden continued his dental education after graduating as a DDS from the University of Minnesota, and he actively participates in dental organizations like the Academy for the Study of Dental Occlusion, the American Dental Society, and the Minnesota Dental Society. He tends to teeth with a full range of general and cosmetic dentistry services. In addition to preventing cavities with cleanings, the doctor specializes in keeping evidence of dental work a secret. He spruces up smiles with porcelain veneers, fits teeth with natural-looking ceramic crowns, and replaces conspicuous metal amalgam with tooth-colored composite material. He also applies Invisalign and ClearCorrect braces that stay out of sight like teenagers at family functions as they guide teeth toward healthier positions. Dr. Lunden runs a family practice, and he loves kids; he himself has four children, four grandchildren, and a wife who teaches kindergarten.
The blue LED lights shining throughout Bright Smile Teeth Whitening’s office glow with purpose—to activate and oxidize the system’s specially formulated whitening gel. In just 30 minutes, this duo tag-teams the stains that result from using tobacco, drinking coffee, or mistaking a quill for a toothpick, lightening teeth up to six shades. Bright Smile also downsizes its system to make it feasible for at-home shading, even providing a compact blue light that fits snugly in mouths.
Lots of people never want to leave college, but few actually get the chance to stay. Dr. Steven B. Means counts himself among these lucky few; after graduating from the University of Minnesota School of Dentistry in 1977, he moved in to an office located right on campus. Though he’s now an expert in cosmetic and restorative dentistry, Dr. Means has taken advantage of his collegiate surroundings to continually educate himself in those fields. He has joined forces with Dr. Sherif Said, who is an alumnus of Ain Shams University's School of Dentistry in Cairo, a member of the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry, and has practiced dentistry for over eight years.
Whether they're filling cavities with tooth-colored composites, installing dental implants, or performing a routine cleaning, the two doctors keep their patients informed and encourages them to ask questions. It’s all part of making them feel as comfortable as possible—as is their use of nitrous oxide to calm jittery nerves. Their expertise also extends to treating gum disease and customizing mouth guards for people who unconsciously chew on their arms while asleep.
