Dr. Faryl K. Hart tends to teeth with technology such as Velscope cancer detection, which reveals cancerous tissue with specially calibrated light, and DioDent lasers, which contour soft tissues with less bleeding than a traditional blade. Dr. Hart quickly makes over smiles with Snap-On Smile, effectively hiding chips, gaps, and stuck-on grills for several years. She also helps patients overcome snoring and sleep-apnea issues with specialized appliances, and assesses the patients’ treatments while they sleep in their own beds by sending them home with MediByte take-home sleep-study monitoring equipment.
At Family Dentistry, Dr. Harini B. Reddy and Dr. Khisti operate in sync. They each began their dental education in India and then moved to the U.S. to receive their doctorates at Boston University. Today, they continue to work in tandem, accomplishing general, restorative, and cosmetic dental services for patients of all ages. Throughout each filling, dental implant, or extraction, the doctors keep patients in the know, explaining ahead of time what the procedure will entail and giving pointers on how to give your mouth that new-toothbrush smell.
Dr. John J. Andre draws on training in general dentistry, Invisalign systems, and laser treatments while heading a team of doctors and dental hygienists. They perform treatments that range from routine cleanings to implants or extractions, leaving smiles that are beautiful even when directed eerily at the only other person in a life raft. The dentists also specialize in pediatric dentistry, striving to put children at ease during cleanings and to educate them about oral hygiene.
Dr. Soltanian and his team help teeth realize their potential with services as basic as cleanings or as advanced as complete smile makeovers. Restorations and orthodontics fix gapped and uneven smiles, and take-home whitening systems with custom-fit trays intensively erase stains. Lumineers—porcelain veneers that are as thin as a contact lens—fit over existing teeth to correct chips and discoloration, and sedation dentistry quells the anxiety of nervous patients more effectively than a hug from a grandmother.
At Murry & Kuhn Dentistry, Drs. Donald Murry Jr., Ken Murry, Don Murry III, Brittney Murry, and Todd Kuhn focus on keeping teeth in top-notch form with routine cleanings, veneers, dental implants, and whitening services. They use a slew of technologies during appointments, straightening chompers with traditional orthodontics or Invisalign clear braces and revealing hidden medical issues with digital x-rays. The digital units allow the dentists to show patients images quickly, and they produce less radiation than a traditional x-ray machine or Superman doing pushups. Murry & Kuhn Dentistry recently opened a new office in Chesterfield.
At Midlothian Family Dentistry, Drs. Robert A. Sorenson and William R. Monacell work to erase the perception that dental offices have to be scary. In doing so, they rely on more than just a gentle chair-side demeanor; they help guide patients step-by-step through general, cosmetic, and reconstructive treatments with optional oral-conscious sedation. This tool allows patients to stay awake and responsive—a helpful option for patients leery about "going under" with general anesthesia or the dentist's slideshow of his trip to Alaska.
