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).
Dr. Inna Shimanovsky and her professional staff have the experience and credentials to intimidate plaque and oral antagonists from the crevices of canines and incisors. Every patient's exam and x-rays provide a thorough investigation into the state of their mouth and illuminate what basic steps can be taken to keep their chewers and gums in a fit state of opulent well-being. AAdvanced Dental uses top-of-the-line digital x-ray technology that exposes patients to less radiation than a normal x-ray device, greatly decreasing the likelihood of patients obtaining unsettling superpowers during their visit.
The My Premier Dental Group of America dental network links patients to private practices throughout the Pacific Northwest. All the dental professionals within this network independently own their practices and are trained in the latest technologies. They perform everything from preventative checkups to maintain oral health, porcelain veneers to correct smiles, and sleep-apnea-device fittings to help patients sleep better than a baby who just completed his taxes.
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.
If Dr. Noé Flores could give his chiropractic patients one piece of advice, it would be to work toward preventing pains before they start. By incorporating lifestyle coaching and practical postural-advice into his visits, he helps to fulfill his goal of helping patients practice prevention as much as he helps them relieve their pains. New patients experience an in-depth consultation during which Dr. Flores assesses their current issues, the number of bowling balls currently stuffed in their mattresses, and their goals for treatment, before he administers tests or treatment. During adjustments, he uses a low-pressure technique as a way to keep his patients comfortable. In some cases, he uses auricular therapy, a type of ear acupuncture that helps release endorphins and reduces pain. Building on his preventive ideas, the doctor and his team also give their patients exercises they can perform on their own to promote wellness outside his office.
