When Dr. Anthony Skiadas began treating patients, he found that despite their differing oral-health problems, they all had one thing in common—a desire for convenient care. His patients were sick of finding a specialist they thought could treat their maladies, only to be told they'd have to see yet another doctor in another location. So Dr. Skiadas established Smilebuilderz, a practice with more than 250 professionals working under one roof, all with the goal of giving patients a clean bill of oral health and a beautiful smile.
To make dental care even more convenient, he and his staff created the Smilebuilderz discount dental plan, which gives members between 20% and 50% off services such as implants, veneers, braces, and whitening, as well as unlimited complimentary exams and x-rays. They also offer massaging dental chairs, pillows, and blankets, making visiting the dentist more relaxing than being rocked to sleep by Betty White.
Dr. Keisha Judd, who received her dental degree from Tufts University and completed advanced training at the University of Pennsylvania, helms a team of technicians who solve dental problems based on individual needs. To begin the treatment, patients make themselves comfortable in cushy dental chairs before a hygienist x-rays ivory soldiers to assess their position, identify decay, and formulate further treatment plans. Hygienists then cleanse teeth of grime and plaque before bestowing guests with oral hygiene instructions to keep smiles as bright as the buckle of Orion's belt. Call ahead to schedule an appointment.
Dr. Daniel C. West presides over New Holland Dental Care, where he applies his more than 30 years of dental expertise. Throughout his career, Dr. West has kept his office up to date on modern dental tools. Digital x-rays reduce the radiation of traditional x-rays by up to 90%, and CEREC technology creates customized crowns in one day. IV sedation or nitrous oxide allows patients to snooze through procedures or simply beat pretreatment jitters.
Dr. Steven W. Haywood’s proficiency at transforming smiles earned him a spot on ABC2’s Extreme Makeover Special, and his staff strives to recreate the calming atmosphere of a spa in their office. In cosmetic dentistry treatments, Dr. Haywood fills gaps between teeth with porcelain veneers and straightens smiles with Invisalign and orthodontia. Lasers whiten teeth in fewer than two hours or help the doctor sniff out cavities without calling in a specialized bloodhound to follow the scent of decay through your mouth. An intraoral video camera sends mouth-views to a TV screen, letting both doctor and patient share the same view of each tooth.
At Advanced Smiles, Dr. Jiten Gohel administers restorative and cosmetic treatments with minimal patient discomfort. Dr. Gohel uses low-radiation digital x-rays over traditional x-rays to cut down on radiation, and cleans teeth with distilled water to eliminate potential contamination caused by tap water. All of this, plus his warm air high-fives, help make patients feel more comfortable and cut down on traditional dental phobias.
