At Ideal Dentistry, Drs. Christian W. Hahn and Dr. Gill specialize in cosmetic dentistry. Both doctors dedicate themselves to performing handcrafted cosmetic techniques that imbue refurbished smiles with a natural and realistic appearance. When patients arrive, they're escorted to a private consultation room to meet with one of the doctors and discuss their desired results. After a "quick-look" exam and a few digital photographs, the doctor will help the patient determine which dental tests and treatments should follow on their next visit.
The doctors demonstrate their compassion for patients and commitment to health by using safe, advanced dental technology. They also use safe and aesthetically pleasing compounds such as white composite and porcelain. So dedicated is Dr. Hahn to the use of natural ingredients in dentistry, he is the founder and president of Dr. Hahn?s Naturals, which exists for the sole purpose of replacing harmful chemicals with natural dental products. In addition, technologies such as digital x-rays spare patients the radiation exposure and anachronistic lectures of traditional x-ray equipment.

The Kentucky Center for Orthodontics’ trio of doctors all got into orthodontics when they realized just how much a great smile can improve someone’s life. Dr. Douglas Durbin, the inventor of the Flosspik polypropylene interproximal dental cleaner, Dr. Thomas Garner, and Dr. John Huang enhance the smiles of both children and adults with Invisalign treatments, braces with clear brackets, and invisible retainers glued to the back of teeth. They use digital imaging to construct treatment plans, they avoid headgear whenever possible, and they never just pull out a tooth when it won’t cooperate. Under their steady hands, The Kentucky Center for Orthodontics has straightened the teeth of more than 35,000 patients, including Miss Kentucky USA 2009 Maria Montgomery.
As Forest Springs Family Dental enters its second decade of life, Dr. Misty Waldeck-Griffin continues to build the clinic's legacy amid the columns and arches of a neoclassical office. Curving granite countertops and tiled glass walls cultivate the openness of a Roman forum, and wooden floors ground the office in the 21st century. Tucked away in treatment rooms, massaging dental chairs hum as Dr. Waldeck-Griffin walks patients through services from digital x-rays to teeth whitening and wireless braces.
At J-Town Comprehensive Dental Center, Dr. Christina Beckham heads a team of mouth maestros who tend teeth with general, cosmetic, and preventive dentistry. Dr. Beckham specializes in CEREC tooth restoration, which matches ceramic crowns or veneers to gnashers' natural ivory hue, fostering natural-looking smiles that are more stunning than a tinfoil suit in a lightning storm. Gingivitis and teeth grinding meet their match with corrective cleansing, and glistening surfaces replace tartar and daily wear after exams and cleanings. Patients seeking Hollywood smiles avail themselves of J-Town Comprehensive Dental Center's in-office teeth-whitening techniques and Six Month Smiles braces before casting their tooth impressions on the Walk of Fame.
Drs. Mark Schulte and Carol Muth, along with Mark’s son Dr. David Schulte, work together to correct crooked smiles and protect the oral health of their patients. They draw on their collective expertise to tend to teeth with a variety of procedures that range from exams to orthodontics. The dentists also employ advanced technology, including a digital x-ray system to reduce exposure to radiation and a rotary-endodontics system that addresses root canals in one visit instead of several weeks or leap days. Whether the team is filling cavities with tooth-colored composites or fitting mouths with Invisalign clear plastic aligners, such attention to efficiency and comfort is emblematic of their mission to make dental health as easy as possible for their patients.
