Dr. Michael Costello leads his team of dentists and hygienists in the war against oral disrepair from two clean, welcoming bases of operations. Your tooth-technicians will begin with a radiograph that examines your whole mouth-cavern for signs of tumors, tommyknockers, and trapped miners. They’ll also scan your molar mountainscape with a DIAGNOdent laser cavity-detection instrument to pinpoint any developing divots in your dentata that have been stockpiling food particles for tomorrow's lunch. As Dr. Costello and company scrub and scrape your tusks clean, you’ll be free to watch the TV above the chair and speak mostly in vowels.

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.

Mouth master Dr. Roberto Monteagudo brings more than 15 years of advanced dental experience to the task of dental maintenance and food-cruncher cleaning. Dental experiences at Monteagudo are as comfortable and nonthreatening as lounging on a tame lion skin—a previsit phone call gives Dr. Monteagudo's office the opportunity to learn tooth history and tailor the appointment to the needs of each individual mouth, followed by a visit with personalized care. The office's earth toned colors, soft lighting, and homey feel exude a calming influence, putting patients at ease. Teeth and gums are given the once-over, searched for evidence of gum disease, plaque, and mouth gnomes chipping away at enamel with tiny pickaxes, and then x-rayed to check for impacted molars and hidden tooth decay. With a clean bill of tooth health, the plaque-wrecking cleaning begins delicately devastating tartar buildup and brushing teeth to a blinding sheen.
