Dr. Joy K. Lunan DDS brings more than three decades of experience to her family dentistry practice, which serves patients in the greater Waterbury, Naugatuck, and Middlebury areas. A native of Mercedes, Texas, she studied at Baylor University and the University of Texas, where she graduated Summa Cum Laude. Today, she works hard to not only brighten smiles with whitening treatments and cosmetic procedures, she also wants to ensure that mouths stay healthy with cancer screenings and preventative care. Regular cleanings, x-rays, and checkups are key in deterring expensive problems in the future and maintaining a healthy mouth for as long as possible.
When she is not caring for her adult patients via cosmetic and restorative dentistry or her pediatric patients, she maintains an active lifestyle of kayaking, cycling, sailing, skiing, and fishing. Much like her work at her dental practice, her interests are diverse and include spending time with family, friends, and her beloved dogs.
At Advanced Dental of New England, Dr. Michael Maroon and his staff banish skittishness in new patients with a relaxing atmosphere and meticulous patient care. During a dental exam, the doctor determines the health of teeth and mouth-dwelling gum goblins by performing a periodontal probing. After a thorough cleaning makes teeth as clean as an obsessive-compulsive whistle, Dr. Maroon snaps a flattering set of x-rays, allowing him to deliver a clean bill of health or discuss a future course of treatment.
General dentists, certified lab technicians, and specialists in areas from root canals to orthodontia work together on Columbia Dental’s diverse team. They safeguard smiles with a comprehensive array of services, placing special emphasis on disease prevention with rigorous exams, cleanings, and digital x-rays. However, when disease strikes, the team can treat it in-house, tending to inflamed gums and eliminating chronic pain with root canals. The staff can also straighten crooked smiles with Invisalign treatments, which are more effective than constructing mouth guards from rulers. The office accommodates hectic schedules by staying open seven days a week, with evening appointments available.
West Main Dental caters to teeth teeth young and old. Kids as young as aged 5 are treated to sealants that protect against cavities and tooth decay.

Specialty dental services range from extractions and root canals to dentures and crowns.
Cromwell's licensed and experienced dentists and staff tune up teeth with dental expertise and a friendly chairside manner.

New patients can opt for a full dental exam, expediting the process by filling out an information packet before visiting Cromwell's sleek and inviting office, where tastefully bright colors, high-tech equipment, and streamlined chairs let clients know what it's like to get a fluoride rinse on the bridge of the Enterprise.
At All Smiles Dental, Dr. Joseph Ciarcia strives to treat patients like family. Instead of ironing Dad’s shirts or driving the kids to piano lessons, he and his caring staff make dental visits as comfortable as possible. To build healthy smiles, Dr. Ciarcia crafts a treatment plan for each tooth, crown, and veneer. During preventive exams, he searches for cavities using digital x-rays, which help locate decay using up to 90% less radiation than a traditional x-ray or a make-out session with a flirty quasar. Cosmetic services range from Invisalign smile-straightening regimens to whitening treatments by Philips and Opalescence. Throughout each visit, staffers field patients’ questions and share tips on keeping choppers strong and shiny.
