Product of Georgia’s university and college system, Dr. Juanita Adkins planted her roots along the tree-lined streets of Augusta by opening Downtown Dental in March of 2006. Today, with her offices nestled in among the little shops and restaurants, she executes all manner of dentistry, from general checkups and teeth whitenings to dental implants and dentures. She remains ahead of the dental curve through continual education, and by wielding the latest in technology such as digital x-rays that reduce radiation exposure and offer more comprehensive views of the mouth.
Dr. Mike Franklin didn’t always see himself as a dentist; in fact, he worked for seven years in corporate America before deciding that helping others was his true calling. He decided to study dentistry, a choice that would lead him to open Vivid Smile Dental Center in 2011. Dr. Franklin and associates perform a full slate of preventive, surgical, and cosmetic procedures, including routine cleanings and checkups, x-rays, root canals, dental implants, crowns, and teeth whitening.
Because Sunset Dental's staff recognizes that going to the dentist can be unpleasant for some, it has designed an office that keeps patients' comfort in mind. Massaging dental chairs and sedation dentistry help relax patients, and digital x-rays take images of teeth and roots. Above all, the staff comforts patients by listening to their concerns and complaints before attempting any general or cosmetic services.
The expert chopper doctors at The Art of Dentistry restore carnassial sheen in a friendly office replete with the latest dental technology. For take-home treatments, discolored mouth knives are first subjected to a careful molding to tailor bleaching trays to the upper and lower jaws, ensuring they fit comfortably in your mouth and uncomfortably in the mouth of covetous strangers. Three included syringes grant patients the ability to give repeat boosts to the pearlescent brilliance emanating from their neck oysters. Alternately, Groupon customers can erase a lifetime of Cray-Pas gnawing with the in-office BriteSmile treatment, which can whiten gum jewels an average of nine shades. A special blue light activates the whitening gel, which is reapplied three times during the treatment for optimal smile resolution and playback in HD-only bathroom mirrors. Between applications, patients can busy themselves watching DVDs or imagining how their newly glittering grin will strike fear into the hearts of romantic rivals and the occasional romantic cube steak.
The 90-minute Zoom! Advanced Power whitening treatment is designed for safe and immediate shine-boosting of up to eight brightness shades. Zoom! utilizes a scientifically formulated gel that is activated when applied, targeting discolorations and overall yellowing. Whitening results can be long-lasting, and can continue with the take-home trays, which are good for one year of touch-ups and allow multitaskers to work, watch children, or pose for hours in front of the mirror as their chompers whiten. Patients also get a 30-minute basic exam to ensure overall oral health.
At Davis & Dingle Family Dentistry, Drs. Isaiah Davis and John W. Dingle form an amazing tooth-saving twosome that harnesses more than 45 years of combined experience to lavish clients' smiles in individualized attention. The accomplished clinicians treat the chompers of all family members, wiggling baby teeth, issuing adult dentures, and taking car keys away from teenaged bicuspids in the same fully equipped facility on Farrow Road. Along with preventative care, these dental dynamos also forge pristine-looking pearlies with a variety of cosmetic services such as Zoom! teeth whitening, Invisalign, and full mouth restorations. Davis & Dingle Family Dentistry's patient-focused philosophy eliminates needless pain and anxiety during procedures, with dentists administering nitrous oxide and giving molars belly rubs to make every patient's experience as comfy as possible.
