Dentists at other clinics boast of having studied implantology under the world-renowned Dr. Arun Garg. Dr. Garg began his practice at Center for Dental Implants of South Florida after two decades of building a sterling reputation in academic dentistry. During those years, he published more than 100 medical articles and wrote several textbooks that have been translated into eight different languages. He also founded the American Dental Implant Association, where he still serves as president.
Dr. Garg and his associates handle services ranging from general checkups to advanced implant procedures. The dental team was among the first to adopt technologies such as surgical lasers and the cone-beam CT scanner for facial imaging.
Armed with a degree in microbiology from the University of Florida, Dr. Pablo J Fonseca combines his fascination with small worlds with a passion for big smiles. The 25-year veteran works closely with his team members, many of whom dedicate thousands of hours to continuing education classes. Together, the group performs both general and cosmetic services as well as emergency dentistry for those with chipped teeth or a feeling that the tooth fairy is overstaying her welcome.
Dr. Marilyn Amaral and her smile-saving team rejuvenate wearied teeth with their compounded cosmetic and restorative dental expertise. A full inspection of the mouth begins the 90-minute procedure, during which cavity scouts check the teeth and gums for oral disease and smuggled lollipops. A series of four bitewing x-rays peers into the inner workings of chompers, ensuring that their beauty is not simply enamel-deep. Professional prophylaxis then removes clingy tartar and plaque, leaving grins gleaming brightly enough to blind uninvited encyclopedia salesmen. Houseplants and natural light lend the procedure rooms a homey feel. While waiting for their appointments, patients can set their eyes upon the guest room's television or hunt for unlicensed pictures of their pets in the assortment of magazines.
Within a soothing spa setting filled with modern technology, Elite Dental Group restores gleam to Cheshire grins via the Zoom! method of laser tooth illumination. Experienced fang-wranglers perform this in-office artistry, first bedaubing teeth with a special paste. Next, Lilliputian stain fighters bombard sullied smiles with squirt guns as a laser waltzes gracefully across cusps, activating chemicals that restore whiteness and make proud papa lasers weep. The one-hour treatment results in mild, temporary sensitivity, while purity may persist for up to four years, depending on the client's use of coffee, tobacco, tea, wine, and foul language.

Emphasizing the importance of patient comfort, Premiere Dental Care Center’s trio of dentists serve smiles with 45- to 60-minute appointments tailored to individual needs. Cleaning sessions deploy experienced hygienists to gently scour entire mouth interiors for plaque and tartar, including sub-gumline areas that can breed gingivitis, periodontal disease, or gum puppies. Nitrous oxide and local anesthesia are on hand as needed to soothe sensitive or anxious patients. Exams peek between pristine ivories, investigating crevices for decay and other ailments and taking into account activities that can impede oral health, such as smoking or chewing on limestone walls. Bitewing x-rays lift the epidermal veil over jawlines, evaluating potential problems and ferreting out lurking cavities.
With a staff of 150 licensed dentists, hygienists, and dental assistants, Community Smiles conducts dental exams that aim to detect problems early and instruct youth on healthy brushing and eating habits. Examinations can also prevent more serious health conditions caused by cavities and gum disease, such as diabetes, respiratory diseases, and infection. Community Smiles has set the goal to provide free dental examinations for 80 children from low-income families, but the organization requires additional funding in order to complete this goal.
