After graduating dental school, doctors Nissa and Paul McConnell spent time in active duty as dentists with the U.S. Army. Today, at Heritage Family Dental, they've taken on a different kind of duty: providing an alternative to impersonal corporate dental chains. Inside their cozy Evansville office, Nissa and Paul strive to build their legacy around traditional family values. Of course, they also build that legacy around their handy dental work, with their services covering everything from braces and bridges to implants, crowns, and emergency dental procedures.
Dr. Jason McNabb grew up in the Louisville area, and when he decided to attend dental school he chose the University of Louisville. After undergoing advanced training in implants, endodontics, and cosmetic dentistry, Dr. McNabb opened Simply Smiles, where he treats the pain of impacted wisdom teeth, spots periodontal disease, and whitens teeth in-office. He also straightens teeth with ClearCorrect braces, which use custom-made clear trays instead of the traditional metal brackets that make it unsafe to microwave your food while it's in your mouth.
At Kentucky Oral Surgery & Dental Implant Center, board-certified oral and maxillofacial surgeons Drs. Thad Schulten, W. Ronald Harris, and Timothy Acord and their team of certified assistants use the latest techniques and technology to perform a variety of procedures. They specialize in treatments ranging from dental-implant surgery and wisdom-tooth removal to corrective jaw surgery, and monitor patients before, during, and after surgeries that feature intravenous (IV) sedation or outpatient general anesthesia. The skilled surgeons can also remove excess folds or under-eye bags with eyelid surgery, and use surgical or nonsurgical treatments to address sleep apnea resulting from an albatross-obstructed airflow.
In 2007, Dr. Barbra Shea Perkins followed her dreams and became the owner and primary dentist of Newburgh Family Dental.

Since completing his residency in pediatric dentistry at Chicago’s Children’s Memorial Hospital in 2001, Dr. Jeff Hiester uses his training in dentistry, his natural empathy, and the latest dental technology to tend tots’ teeth. Dr. Jeff and his hand-picked team of registered assistants operate out of two locations, monitoring children’s dental development, restoring wayward molars to their pristine condition, and instilling good oral hygiene practices, such as flossing, brushing, and not biting the mall Santa.
At River Bend Dental Group, board-certified dentists Dr. Donald Eblen and Dr. Thomas Salmon Jr. and their tooth techs strive to improve the shine and width of grins. Examiners scrutinize each tooth for signs of disease or unpatriotic sentiments, then thoroughly cleanse cuspid surfaces of plaque, tartar, and the enamel doodles of less professional dentists. A set of commemorative x-rays preserve toothsome images for dentists' and grandchildren's perusal, then are used to create custom trays. At home, patients can continue improving smiles with a combination of the trays and NiteWhite bleaching gel.
Headed by veteran dental professional Dr. Kathleen Foster, Diamond Valley Dental Care keeps mouths squeaky clean in a comfortable, professional setting. A mouth exam gives chompers a fastidious once over, helping uncover toothy troubles such as enamel decay, gum disease, and feral populations of animal crackers. Bitewing and full-mouth x-rays augment the visual recon, revealing hidden cavities and creating a detailed dental map for future visits. The thorough cleaning gently restores mouths to immaculate cleanliness, lifting away plaque and tartar from tarnished pearly whites. Treatments take place in an open, friendly atmosphere, and the practice’s staff is dedicated to explaining treatment options and answering patients’ questions, so that no one has to go home wondering where cavities come from or why molars and incisors have such a turbulent relationship.
