Roberto Gil, DMD, and Lissette Bernal, DDS, have laid down their swords in the ongoing battle to determine who possesses the most legitimate acronym and joined forces to fight a common enemy: the fear of smiling. They channel their experience into helping patients maintain or reach a point of brandishing pearly whites without shame, drawing from a menu of cosmetic and preventive treatments for children and adults. Using a combination of digital imaging technology and echolocation, the doctors and their staff of technicians can thoroughly scan each patient’s teeth and pinpoint problem areas before they become unmanageable. In addition, they offer porcelain veneers and teeth-whitening procedures to ensure that teeth remain unblemished.
Helmed by Dr. Kenneth Pyle, a general and cosmetic dentist with a penchant for tooth technology and over 10 years of experience from more than 600 cases, Orlando Dental Group keeps choppers healthy and helps them look their best. Scientific advances such as Invisalign tooth straightening, which Pyle is an instructor for, and Cerec restorations bolster the clinic's service menu, which teems with furbishing options such as bonding and veneers. Caring technicians guide patients through routine cleanings, sharing oral-hygiene tips, and steering them toward educational videos on brushing, gum-disease prevention, and management of wisdom teeth. Digital x-rays minimize radiation as they search for cavities, and friendly schedulers makes appointment-setting easier than getting stuck in a puddle of quicksand.

After waiting by the sandy walls and staring at beach photographs in the lobby, patients at Lake Baldwin Dental might mistake their treatment room for a private cabana, especially after reclining in a leather chair with a personal screen that broadcasts movies, TV shows, and music. Patients relax further with noise-canceling headphones that diminish the sounds of dental instruments or with dental sedation, which can help clients with dental phobias find a sense of serenity.
Dr. William Dunn and Dr. Kathleen Anderson then get to work, addressing cosmetic concerns with complimentary smile makeover consultations that can lead to Zoom! whitening services, porcelain veneers, and implants. Their medical offerings range from inconspicuous fillings to cosmetic services.
Dr. Jose Marcano, DMD, draws from more than 20 years of dentistry expertise and numerous continuing-education classes to lead his staff in the fight for healthy smiles. His practice is a mostly "drill-free" facility, thanks to his use of air abrasion and advanced lasers for cosmetic and restorative treatments. During routine dental exams, technicians scan teeth for trouble spots, such as cavities, tartar buildup, or picketing molars demanding more candy, before snapping panoramic and bitewing x-rays to gain insight into inner-enamel precincts. The staff further revamps teeth with a full spectrum of services, from veneers to Zoom! whitening to Invisalign aligners.
Affinity Life Spa’s talented professionals perform an array of cosmetic and corrective services, including facials, LipoSonix, laser hair-removal treatments, IPL laser treatments, and permanent-makeup procedures. For patrons seeking stress relief, massages in the form of Swedish and deep-tissue modalities shepherd muscles into serene states; holistic treatments such as acupuncture and hypnosis target unhealthy habits and foster overall well-being. Staffers send guests home with a positive-thought card that helps keep dispositions brighter than a Harvard-educated flashlight.
Helmed by board-certified orthodontic specialist Dr. Battle, Premier Orthodontics guides rebellious mouth knives back into regimental alignment using the most up-to-date tooth technology. The Invisalign process straightens crooked chompers with a combination of highly advanced, 3-D computer graphics, and clear, removable aligners that are virtually invisible to the unclothed eye. During an initial 60-minute exam, the mouth magicians will determine the best course of treatment for each patient, using x-rays, and photos of the mouth terrain, paving the way for a flurry of calibrated teeth sheaths that are designed to slowly shift walnut crackers into perfect alignment. Depending on the client’s teeth, as few as 12 or as many as 48 separate Invisalign aligners will need to be worn during a period of 6–15 months before the straightening effect finally self-actuates in a sudden burst of pink smoke and slobber. Aligners are only removed when eating, brushing, flossing, or modeling a finely clenched jaw.
