Smiley Dental's quintet of dentists keeps tooth decay at bay and gums healthy with general, surgical, and cosmetic dentistry for the whole family. Their gentle services cover everything from checkups and fillings to extractions, implants, and dentures. They also accomplish quality orthodontics with braces designed to suit the smiles of all ages.
On weekday evenings and Saturdays, most nine-to-fivers are relaxing, but Dr. Larry A. Davis is examining teeth. A dentist for more than 25 years, he maximizes patient convenience by offering appointments during non-traditional hours at his clinic, Davis Dental Services. There, he collaborates with Dr. Audrey Cha and Dr. Destiney Bean, tending teeth with fillings and exams, as well as more cosmetic treatments such as implants and tooth-wigs.
Dr. Ellen Turner and her staff of aestheticians, physician's assistants, and medical assistants are passionate about what they do. In a mini-documentary about their practice, they all chime in about unearthing their clients' inner beauty and enhancing their self-confidence. Through their treatments, which range from facials to treatments for acne and rosacea, they focus on making a difference in their patients' lives. A lot of times this means bringing about change that makes patients happy to look in mirrors and unwilling to hide their faces beneath brown paper bags.
Dr. David Nix and his team employ advanced dental technology to keep their patients comfortable. His full-service office performs cosmetic and restorative services with less-invasive equipment, such as digital x-rays, lasers, and intra-oral cameras. Dr. Nix also removes tooth decay with an air-abrasion tool, which scrubs with a current of aluminum oxide particles rather than a traditional drill’s millions of microscopic erasers. During treatments, patients are welcome to watch a movie, relax with massage pads, and soothe their senses with aromatherapy.
Anthony Capasso, a board-certified doctor of internal medicine, has channeled his more than 15 years of experience treating weight-related ailments into developing medication-free approaches to weight loss at Thin Centers MD. At each location, clients start their medical weight-loss regimens with an initial consultation that uses various health metrics—including medical history and a blood evaluation—to determine which approach fits them best. Dr. Capasso’s diets come tailored to various lifestyles, ranging from those that work for avid cooks to diets for people with hectic schedules. Each of the programs can also be enhanced with the fat-melting technology of an FDA-approved Zerona laser. Weekly follow-up visits with the medical staff help patients track their weight-loss progress, stamp their diet journal with the words “Private—This Means You, Mom,” and make any necessary changes to their program.
