At Helotes Family Dentistry, Dr. José Brigman wants to keep patients comfortable during treatments. When patients need a stronger distraction than the flat-screen TVs that are in every room, the staff provides electronic movie glasses and headphones during cleanings, fillings, and teeth-whitening treatments. The team also offers conscious sedation to especially anxious patients, which lets them stay alert and responsive while easing pretreatment jitters.

Family dentist Dr. Tom Watkins, who received his advanced training in dentistry while serving in the US Air Force, divides his time between fostering greater grins and teaching at the University of Texas Dental School. Dr. Alejandro Cavazos, previously a science teacher, employs his extensive experience in implants and oral surgery to provide a high level of care for his patients. Together, they helm W Dental Group, realigning teeth with ClearCorrect orthodontics and replenishing smiles by implanting dental prostheses or pieces of corn soldered in gold.

During exams, W Dental Group's staff snaps candid shots of teeth with x-rays to better assess overall dental health and identify any existing issues, then stores the photos in an electronic database, alongside clinical photographs and impressions, for future visits. They also assuage anxiety with sedation dentistry, helping patients to relax with nitrous oxide, IV sedation, or stories about a very calm whale learning to read.

The office makes time for philanthropic pursuits—the team recently participated in San Antonio's Smiles for Hope, an annual event for families unable to afford dental care or insurance, and Dr. Watkins regularly travels to Central and South America to deliver dental care to those without access to it.

The network of dental professionals at Today’s Dental Today check families’ chomper health using progressive digital dental technology such as digital x-rays, intraoral cameras, and computers in every room. During the 90- to 120-minute exam, the dentist thoroughly peruses mouthscapes in search of tooth decay, gum disease, and oral cancer before taking intraoral photographs and a set of digital x-rays. Then, a skilled hygienist bathes teeth in a flurry of toothpaste and fluoride, sloughs off tartar between teeth with floss, and scrapes tongues free of schoolyard-inspired swear words.

Tooth Time Family Dentistry's expert dentists and hygienists rejuvenate damaged and stained chompers with meticulous cleaning and whitening treatments. The one-hour sprucing up begins with an initial oral exam that scours pearly whites and gums for ailments caused by invading bacteria. Four x-rays delve deeper to discover hidden cavities or untapped fossil-fuel deposits. A hygienist then scrubs away plaque and bacteria using high-tech dental gadgetry. The tooth technicians also brighten smiles with custom teeth-whitening trays. Bleach-based whitening serum dismantles stains and brightens smiles. Tooth Time Family Dentistry also employs bilingual staff members to assist native Spanish or pig Latin speakers.
