For a dentist, a normal day at the office brings little anxiety. But for an apprehensive patient, it can trigger nerves and stress. That's why the staff at aptly named Apprehensive Patient dental offices work hard to temper guests' jitters. The most potent calm comes in the form of anti-anxiety medications, nitrous oxide (AKA "sweet air"), and intravenous sedatives. These soothing agents ensure that patients are laid-back and comfortable no matter the scale of their scheduled treatment, which can range from a simple exam and cleaning to an Invisalign fitting or application of porcelain veneers.
Drs. Allan Ruda and Beth DeAngelis maintain and beautify smiles with general, restorative, and cosmetic dentistry services. The doctors treat each patient who wanders through the door or chews their way through the crawlspace as an individual, devising custom care plans and carefully explaining each procedure. They then get to work rejuvenating teeth with advanced dental technology such as laser dentistry, conscious sedation, and computer-controlled dental injections, which deliver a steady, more comfortable stream of anesthetic.
Oakwood Dental Arts spreads its 10 dentists out across three locations, where they sculpt smiles with both preventive and cosmetic treatments. When they aren't fending off cavities with regular cleanings and fillings, they improve smiles with in-office whitening treatments and no-prep veneers. The latter fix chipped, crooked, and discolored teeth while preempting the pain associated with traditional veneers. The process begins when dentists craft custom porcelain shells and ends when those shells bond to existing teeth in spite of their crippling fear of intimacy.
Dr. Galina Goldenberg guides the way to healthy mouths and bright smiles for adults and children at AMG Family Dentistry through her extensive experience and use of the latest technology. She discards decay with electric hand-pieces known to work faster than air-driven hand-pieces, takes digital x-rays for more comprehensive views, and wields rotary endodontics, which make root canals faster for a more comfortable procedure. Her knowhow also extends to everything from dental implants and bone grafting to teeth whitening and crowns.
A bright, airy office greets patients at Shore Smiles Family & Cosmetic Dentistry. The office's state-of-the-art equipment enables University of Pennsylvania School of Dental Medicine graduate Dr. David M. Herman and his team of dental professionals to carry out procedures such as teeth whitening, cleanings, and dental implants.
