Instead of harboring the scents of antiseptic, hallways and treatment rooms fill with pleasant aromas. Bright lights stay away as relaxing glows radiate from soft illuminators. World music flits into ears alongside the sound of bubbling emanating from in-office waterfalls. Smile With Zenitude shuns an uncomfortable "clinic" environment, relying on a variety of relaxation methods to help calm patients before any dental procedure, Botox treatment, or hormone therapy. And if all that fails, the aesthetic center's team of dentists can ease patients into more tranquil states by administering oral sedation or describing a summer's rain using hushed tones.
Dentists at other clinics boast of having studied implantology under the world-renowned Dr. Arun Garg. Dr. Garg began his practice at Center for Dental Implants of South Florida after two decades of building a sterling reputation in academic dentistry. During those years, he published more than 100 medical articles and wrote several textbooks that have been translated into eight different languages. He also founded the American Dental Implant Association, where he still serves as president.
Dr. Garg and his associates handle services ranging from general checkups to advanced implant procedures. The dental team was among the first to adopt technologies such as surgical lasers and the cone-beam CT scanner for facial imaging.
Dr. Nhora Ortega graduated from the University of Florida and has spent more than two decades as a practicing dentist. Inside her peaceful Miami office, Dr. Ortega and her staff keep chompers chipper with an arsenal of general and cosmetic services. The teams wipes away blemishes with prophylactic cleanings and rounds of teeth whitening with the same level of care that they use when reassembling smiles with bridges, crowns, and implants. In their quest for the absolute best results, Dr. Ortega’s team also incorporates state-of-the-art technology, such as intraoral video cameras that explore the insides of mouths and record individual teeth celebrating a birthday.
When they're examining teeth, the trio of dentists at Premiere Dental Care Center aren't just thinking about the mouth?they're thinking about the rest of the patient, too. That's because they recognize the relationship between oral health and the body. During consultations, they explain how stress can cause cavities, plaque can lead to heart problems, and loose lips can sink ships. Then they meticulously examine teeth in search of decay and other ailments, taking into account activities that can impede oral health, such as smoking.
Armed with a degree in microbiology from the University of Florida, Dr. Pablo J Fonseca combines his fascination with small worlds with a passion for big smiles. The 25-year veteran works closely with his team members, many of whom dedicate thousands of hours to continuing education classes. Together, the group performs both general and cosmetic services as well as emergency dentistry for those with chipped teeth or a feeling that the tooth fairy is overstaying her welcome.
Dr. Marilyn Amaral and her smile-saving team rejuvenate wearied teeth with their compounded cosmetic and restorative dental expertise. A full inspection of the mouth begins the 90-minute procedure, during which cavity scouts check the teeth and gums for oral disease and smuggled lollipops. A series of four bitewing x-rays peers into the inner workings of chompers, ensuring that their beauty is not simply enamel-deep. Professional prophylaxis then removes clingy tartar and plaque, leaving grins gleaming brightly enough to blind uninvited encyclopedia salesmen. Houseplants and natural light lend the procedure rooms a homey feel. While waiting for their appointments, patients can set their eyes upon the guest room's television or hunt for unlicensed pictures of their pets in the assortment of magazines.
