For more than a quarter of a century, Dr. James Michaels has practiced dentistry with an understanding of the trepidation that many people feel towards dental visits, often at the expense of their dental health. Dr. Michaels and his caring staff emphasize gentle dentistry, earning the trust needed to build long-term relationships with patients rather than losing them to cults that worship gummy bears. Among other comforting amenities, headphones engulf patients in a selection of tunes to keep them relaxed during each session.
Dr. Michaels and his staff make sure to walk patients through the ins and outs of each procedure, whether in the area of general and cosmetic dentistry or oral surgery and sorcery. These procedures incorporate up-to-date technologies and techniques thanks to the dental team's commitment to continuing education.
Though they hail from different corners of the world, Drs. Chuan Li, DMD, and Gerald F. Eagan, DDS, both pursue the universal goal of bright, healthy smiles. Doctors and staff—all members of professional dental associations and the Toothbrush of the Month club⎯stay up-to-date by taking continuing-education courses.
Inside treatment rooms equipped with digital sensors and intraoral cameras, patients can look out at Wauwatosa from ninth-floor windows as technicians perform gum treatments or place crowns on power-hungry teeth.
Dr. John Olsen brings more than two decades of experience to every cavity he fills and every smile he fixes. He and his team have created an office that resembles a day spa more than a dental practice: pleasant music fills the air, an aquarium bubbles soothingly, and clients wait in massage chairs instead of standing in a long line leading up to the exam room. In addition to traditional preventative dentistry services, the Franklin Dental staff also offers Invisalign, porcelain veneers, and three varieties of teeth whitening.
While the Funke Family Dentistry practice may have begun in 1928, there's absolutely nothing old about its approach to dental care. Although Dr. James E. Funke and his daughter, Dr. Laura J. Funke, carry on the family legacy of friendly service and lasting doctor-client relationships, they aren’t afraid of modernity. In addition to keeping a banner that reads “Welcome Robot Overlords” on hand, they greet the future by offering a selection of advanced dental services, using state-of-the-art equipment, and operating in a newly remodeled office.
With more than two decades of experience tucked into his gloves, Dr. Stephen Klug leads a sizeable staff at Golden Oak Dental Care. Together, Dr. Klug, Dr. Mena Ghaly, and the team provide comprehensive dental work for the whole family, plus other specialized services such as root canals, veneers, and implants. The Golden Oak team also has some of the industry's latest technologies at its disposal, including dental lasers and oral-cancer-screening devices.
Dr. Kent Botsford employs his 32 years of dental experience to renovate mouths by evaluating not only the patient’s smile and bite but also their muscles and posture. To do this, he uses tools such as digital x-rays, intraoral cameras, and conscious sedation, which frees patients from anxious jitters and accidental biting. The kindhearted dentist also evaluates underprivileged patients by volunteering his services at Head Start and Samaritan Free Care Clinic, and when not perfecting smiles, he enjoys teaching his chocolate lab how to floss.
