Dr. Michael Caparas and his associates at each of the seven Metroplex Dental Care locations perform services using advanced technology, such as digital x-rays that release up to 90% less radiation and intraoral cameras. The doctors recommend a "sensible oral-health regimen," which includes regular dental exams, cleanings, and oral-cancer screenings. They help to repair existing maladies with restorative procedures such as root-canal therapy, and makeover smiles with veneers and whitening treatments. For sound sleep, the doctors fit apnea appliances and snore guards, ensuring that patients will no longer wake family members or lure a herd of migrating kazoos into the bedroom. Whatever the service, the doctors put patients at ease with their soothing chairside manner and variety of sedation options.
At Houston Dental Group, Natalie N. Stimpson, DDS leads a clinical team?including a dental assistant who speaks Spanish?in performing services such as crown installation, Invisalign orthodontic treatments, and wisdom-teeth extractions. She also offers sleep or sedation dentistry for patients with dental anxiety, or for harried moms looking to take a scheduled nap.
With its brilliant, rainbow-colored walls and artwork, the newly opened A-Z Dental makes a cheerful, welcoming impression. This dental office specializes in dental care for children starting at 6 months old, although it provides care for everyone, adults included. Here, dentists offer exams and cleanings, as well as fillings and tooth-repair services. A bright and busy children's play area keeps kids busy and less anxious about dental visits, and the staff is friendly and used to working with young patients.
The team at Forney Family Dentistry strives to engage with patients on a personal level while offering the latest in dental technology. Perhaps Dr. Melina Cozby embodies that attitude best. "When I was a teenager," she says, "I had a dentist that actually listened to me and heard my phobias," she says, "and changed her ‘normal’ routine to make me feel better. From that moment on, I knew I could help people by providing personalized, customized care and connect with each person." Besides offering general dentistry for adults, the doctors and technicians perform pediatric dentistry, gum therapy, headache relief through TruDenta, and cosmetic procedures such as teeth whitening, veneers, and painting a little smiley face on each molar.
