At Downtown Dental Care, Drs. Lance D. Bailey and Kirk Christianson combine their years of experience in general, restorative, and cosmetic dentistry in an office with a compassion-oriented philosophy. The doctors demonstrate their commitment to patients by participating in not-for-profit dentistry as well as such charitable organizations such as UNICEF, Pride Northwest, and Donated Dentistry, a clinic that administers free dental care for patients without insurance.
The doctors also devote themselves to continually honing their craft. Dr. Bailey cares for kids through his training in pediatric dentistry and for seniors with his advanced education in dentures. His training in laser dentistry, IV sedation, and CEREC one-visit crowns keeps him on the cutting edge of the industry. Meanwhile, Dr. Christianson’s advanced skills restore smiles beyond just the teeth with hard and soft tissue grafting and sinus surgery.
The team works to keep patients comfortable during each treatment. Every patient who wanders through the door, or chews their way through the wall, gets treated as an individual. The doctors thoroughly explain each treatment in order to reduce anxiety. During treatments, patients can keep tabs on the outside world with a flat-panel television and a broad window, both situated in front of the operatory chair.
Drs. Wolfe and Shafer consider oral health inseparable from general health. They practice a holistic approach to dentistry at Wolfe Family Dental, not only treating concerns when they appear but taking every step to avoid them. Those preventative measures include regular exams using digital x-rays and cleanings that eliminate the residue regular brushing might not completely clean. The dentists are also committed to patient education, sharing insight on proper flossing, protective fluoride treatments, and how to use “bicuspid” in a sentence. No matter what the procedure, the team strives to create a positive experience for their patients.
At ProDental Hygiene LLC, registered dental hygienist and owner Lilia Hamblin provides a wide range of dental hygiene services without the supervision of a dentist. At this independent dental hygiene practice, her thorough cleanings gently clear away plaque and tartar from each tooth and below the gum line, preventing the bacteria from escaping into to into lungs or blood stream where it can lead to respiratory infections or hardened arteries. She can also fortify enamel from decay and sensitivity with fluoride treatments or brighten smiles with Zoom! whitening treatment. Not only does Lilia clean and whiten teeth, she also educates patients on how to best keep their smiles looking their best.
The teeth-whitening professionals at White Smile Central believe that a brighter smile is a gateway to success. With that in mind, they help whiten clients’ teeth with a variety of premium in-office treatments and take-home whitening treatments. Each treatment harnesses professional-grade peroxide gels and LED lights to accelerate the whitening process while causing little to no sensitivity, brightening chompers up to 12 shades in the process. White Smile Central's gold or platinum in-office treatments can expedite the whitening process, quickly erasing the unsightly evidence left behind by gulps of coffee, sips of wine, and attempts to drink all of a pen’s ink in one sitting. White Smile Central also offers remineralization gels, which reduce tooth sensitivity and strengthen enamel by replenishing important minerals.
With more than 30 years of dental experience, AACD accredited Dr. Robert Stafford and his expert staff keep mouths healthy and in pearlescent condition. The 90-minute comprehensive oral inspection starts with digital bitewing and panoramic mouth x-rays to check for decay and buried treasure (a $198 value). A thorough exam scours kissers for signs of mouth cancer, TMJ, and gum disease (a $97 value), and a bite evaluation marks errant bicuspids and wayward canines. The hygienist gently polishes chompers to a snowy gleam, cleaning away hard-to-reach gunk and calcified toothpaste (a $102 value). A protective fluoride varnish caps off the visit, sealing enamel against corrosion and enabling teeth to direct air traffic with glinting smiles (a $46 value).
