After earning his DDS degree from Ohio State University, Toledo native Dr. Chad Belongea planted roots in Maumee at Arrowhead Dental. He practices family dentistry with a compassionate and gentle approach (two qualities exemplified by the time he spent providing emergency medical care in Haiti after the 2010 earthquake). Whether filling a cavity or filling gaps with dental implants, he's committed to providing the best care and keeping patients comfortable.
Patient-friendly technologies used at Arrowhead Dental include metal-free fillings and digital x-rays designed to provide comprehensive views of mouths while reducing exposure to radiation. Sedation options are available for those anxious about procedures or their tendency to break into song whenever there's a hand in their mouths. High-tech equipment for oral-cancer screenings helps the dentist catch troubling issues in their earliest stages.
When not working in the office, the doctors of Spring Valley Dental live active lives, because they believe that health and happiness is more than a pretty smile. Drs. Simon Lee and Kristen Shumate, for example, take on running competitions with a fierce commitment to health, and Dr. Mark Bedford showcases dexterity with glass-blowing and ceramic crafts. During the work day, however, they join Drs. Shahid Mahmood and James Pelagalli in enhancing smiles. Their services include placing crowns, treating cavities, and cleaning teeth, as well as in-depth procedures like implants and root canals. The smile specialists also utilize advanced technology during every appointment: surgical telescopes allow dentists to explore their clients teeth more accurately than training ants to repel on dental floss.

Hashim, and his team, giving you a comprehensive dental cleaning.Resident evils tartar and plaque will be removed, and mouth pearls will be polished.

Customers may experience temporary sensitivity following the whitening treatment, and results will vary from person to person. After the treatments, every patient will receive toothpaste, floss, and a toothbrush.

The waiting room is outfitted with a TV, cozy fireplace, and plenty of magazines, and the team keeps drinks on hand to offer to guests.

Dr. Larry Schmakel leads the team in tending to teeth with more than 27 years of experience in addition to a doctorate in dental surgery from Ohio State University. But he doesn’t content himself with that—he partakes in continuing education, both as a student and a mentor. Dr. Schmakel is a member of the Cerec Faculty Club at the Scottsdale Center for Dentistry, a continuing-education facility. He's also a member of the Ohio Dental Association, the American Dental Association, and the Tooth Fairy’s scout troop.:m]]
