For the dentists at Community Family Dental, prevention is paramount. Comprehensive exams and x-rays help them customize treatment plans to head off any mouth-centered maladies. When corrective treatments are needed, the staff stands at the ready to perform implant surgery or root canals or to cosmetically enhance teeth with Invisalign and whitening treatments.
At Smile & Skin Aesthetics, a talented staff boosts patients' self-esteem with a host of dental and skincare services. According to Damian D. Meola, DMD, a second-generation dentist with more than 20 years of experience, "there is a synergy between the smile, the skin and a sense of confidence that having both in great shape brings." He tackles the dental side of services with specialties including smile makeovers, full mouth reconstruction, and successful mediations with tooth fairies. Board-certified aesthetician Stacey Powell, alternatively, enhances the skin with nonsurgical treatments such as facials, microdermabrasion, and waxing services.
Dr. Daniel Whiteman sums up his philosophy on dental education in one word: “kaizen,” which is Japanese for “continuous improvement." Even after passing licensing exams in three countries, the driven dentist surpasses the state's requirement for continued education every year. He attends study groups, seminars, and certification classes to bring his patients the latest advances in dental technology. Dr. Whiteman earned certification from Dentsply to operate the Eclipse prosthetic-resin system, creating dentures and nightguards in the clinic's onsite laboratory. He also holds mastership certification from the World Clinical Laser Institute, offering his surgical patients an alternative to drills and scalpels with Biolase's Waterlase MD laser. After each treatment, the dental staff prepares a hot towel for the patient, an alternative to the shreds of burlap passed out at most dentist offices.
Dr. Zineb Mediouni believes that every patient should have a personalized appointment and treatment; her lengthy list of specialties makes it easy for this vision to become a reality. At ZM Dental, she does everything from routine dental care to cosmetic procedures, including whitening and clear Invisalign orthodontics. With an additional degree in prosthodontistry, or restorative dentistry, Dr. Mediouni specializes in replacing missing or damaged teeth with natural-looking implants, veneers, and dentures customized for each individual's smile. She performs these services with the help of ultramodern equipment such as digital x-rays, intraoral cameras, and conscious sedation for patients who feel anxious about visiting the dentist because the overhead light reminds them too much of their alien encounter.
Dr. Bhavani Sriramaneni draws from the lessons of more than two decades of dentistry experience to shine smiles at her dental clinic, where she specializes in cosmetic, preventative, and restorative dentistry. Invisalign treatments straighten teeth with a sequence of invisible aligners, and one-hour Zoom! whitening treatments lift stains from smiles, while veneers stand by to add a new level of perfection to mouths. Preventative dental care complements the more aesthetic services, ranging from tooth-protecting sealants to screenings for common diseases.
Dr. Harish Gulati excels at communication. As an associate professor and lecturer, he shares his insight in general and restorative dentistry and, as a peer reviewer of many dental journals, offers feedback regarding dental healthcare. Similarly, he explains procedures to patients before repairing cavities with tooth-colored fillings or crafting custom dental bridges.
