Smith Family Dental's Drs. Steven and Morgan Smith have designed their office to keep patients as comfortable as possible?both during and after appointments. Once in the chair, patients can don pairs of Bose surround-sound headphones and watch movies or shows playing on the ceiling-mounted TVs. Nitrous oxide soothes patients before treatments, especially when it's coupled with one of the office's blankets, pillows. After root canals or fillings, the team can use OraVerse reverse anesthetic, which helps restore feeling to the lips and gums.
Dr. Burns and Dr. Jenkins have DDS degrees from the Temple University Kornberg School of Dentistry and the Indiana University School of Dentistry, respectively, and they put that professional training to use at Platinum Dental Care. The doctors work tirelessly to keep up with changes in dental medicine, adopting new techniques and technologies—such as implants—as they develop. While both practitioners promote oral health with a variety of cosmetic and rehabilitative dental procedures including teeth whitening, veneers, and fillings, Dr. Burns focuses on saving teeth through full-mouth rehabilitation and by depositing extra teeth into a piggy bank. Dr. Burns also has a degree in psychology, which helps him empathize with patients and mitigate their concern over dental care.
After completing his degree in dentistry, Dr. Daniel West stepped up his game by signing on for an additional 100-plus hours of continuing education, including a residency in dental implants. This expertise comes in handy on a daily basis at his practice, where Dr. West crafts porcelain crowns and veneers in minutes using a special CEREC machine. The doctor also uses technology for preventive care, including an intraoral camera to get a close-up of chompers and digital x-rays to check teeth’s inner chambers for squatting cavities.
iSmile Dentistry proudly proclaims that their doctors are patient specialists and oral-cancer-screening gurus. The crew regularly attends lectures and conventions to remain on the cutting edge of new technology and techniques, including oral-surgery procedures, laser treatments for gum disease, and clear brace aligners. The comprehensive nature of the practice allows patients to receive virtually any service with an on-staff practitioner, eliminating the need to go door to door to find a nearby orthodontist.
Alpenglow Dental's team of five practitioners—all Utah natives—track down the latest research and employ modern technology to maintain oral health at four local practices. Their spectrum of services encompasses many mouth-based needs, whether patients seek a regular cleaning or need veneers to conceal misaligned teeth. ClearCorrect invisible braces use removable aligners instead of metal wires for straighter smiles and more intimidating growls. The dentists are also able to lift stains from age, coffee consumption, and smoking with whitening treatments.
General dentist Dr. Randy Roberts and his team gussy up grins with treatments lavished on chompers at their modern, glass-walled office. Chair-nestled patients open up during free consultations—conducted in English or Spanish—during which Dr. Roberts reads each tooth's star chart. Dr. Roberts belongs to both the national and state dental associations, and is certified in Invisalign, ClearCorrect, treatment planning, implant placement, and bone grafting.
