Dr. Tamma J. Gray and the experienced staff at The Perfect Smiles Dental Center accompany their meticulous dental services with myriad amenities. As the team installs porcelain veneers, fits grins with ClearCorrect invisible braces, or delineates to-do lists for oral hygiene, patients mull over current films through video glasses or affix eyes to flat-screen TVs. Snuggled up in blankets and leaning against spa pillows, patients barely notice low-radiation digital x-rays and intraoral cameras mapping out their mouths in preparation for a gold-tooth heist
For as long as Dr. Carson Rimer has been living in Rutherford County, he has been cleaning teeth and gums. The University of Tennessee graduate's latest locale is Signature Smiles. There, he and his team's general-dentistry services range from the routine—cleanings and exams—to the cosmetic—Zoom! teeth whitening and ClearCorrect aligning. To help make scheduling appointments that much easier, the office stays open until 7 p.m. on Tuesday.
Seven Embassy Dental hubs chase a single mission: to enhance smiles safely using state-of-the-art technology. The accomplished dentists that staff each office preach preventive health care and regular hygiene as a way to stave off more serious issues, although Embassy does employ an oral surgeon, endodontist, and orthodontist just in case. All procedures follow safety guidelines as outlined by the American Dental Association, the Occupational Safety and Health Administration, and articulate fire extinguishers that sit in the corner of each office. The dentists can further highlight healthy smiles by treating teeth with the Zoom whitening method, which brightens them an average of eight shades in 45 minutes.
Dr. Derek Renfroe draws from his award-winning experience at the University of Louisville School of Dentistry and from his years spent as an active-duty dentist in the U.S. Army to protect and enhance smiles inside a new, contemporary office setting. Preventative and general treatments come in the form of checkups, cleanings, fillings, and dental implants. Cosmetic services improve the look of toothy grins with porcelain veneers, teeth-whitening treatments, and strategically placed mirrors. Warm yellow tones cloak the modern office, where TVs rest beside cushy treatment chairs, and sleek white furniture reflects off a meticulously shined floor.:
Like a basketball player after a game-winning shot, successful patients at RM Orthodontics & Family Dentistry get treated to congratulatory high-fives all around. But instead of sinking a difficult free throw, these patients have simply managed to keep appointments, brush regularly, and take care of their teeth. This celebratory atmosphere is what orthodontist Dr. Rachael Maidens and her staff encourage through regular contests for patients and jersey day for staff members.
Dr. Rachael Maidens adheres to the Six Elements orthodontic philosophy, which outlines optimal treatment goals and methods to create harmony in the mouth's appearance, function, health, and rhythm while chewing gum. In the modern office, a central skylight casts natural sunlight over patients gazing out the windows along the perimeter of the treatment room. Sage-green walls, stone embellishments, and dark hardwood floors give the office natural accents, and wireless Internet gives waiting parents or adult patients an opportunity to email or guess the passwords to their coworkers' email as they wait.
Beyond exams and cleanings, Foster Dental Care's specialty services include same-day crowns and custom veneers. The office is open six days a week, with appointments available until 7:30 p.m. on certain days to accommodate busy schedules.
