Smile Design Studios' Dr. Simone Ellis gravitated toward the field of dentistry after seeing her father lose his teeth while he was still in the prime of his life. After earning her doctorate in dentistry from the University of Medicine and Dentistry of New Jersey and gaining membership to professional organizations including the American Dental Association, she set about saving grins from premature departure at Smile Design Studios. She and her staff tend to teeth with dental services including deep cleanings, ClearCorrect invisible braces, porcelain veneers, and Zoom! in-office whitening treatments. Armed with advanced technology, they can help detect cavities with DiagnoDent, screen for oral cancer with VelScope, and read graffiti carved into molars using digital x-rays and snapshots from intraoral cameras. Massaging dental chairs and TVs populate each room of the spa-like office, where a running waterfall calms nerves and a plush reception area with a leather couch, artwork, and a flat-screen TV engages waiting patients.
After growing up in Indiana, Dr. Jessica Ransom performed oral surgeries at a non-profit dental center in Detroit, took an immersion-style Spanish course in Puebla, Mexico, and eventually settled in Texas. Nowadays, she performs oral surgeries and converses easily with Spanish- and English-speaking patients at her Houston clinic: Rocky Creek Dental Care. She and her team specialize in preventative care, administering cleanings, sealants, and fluoride treatments in order to keep teeth from fleeing to more promising mouths. They also finesse smiles with cosmetic treatments, which range from veneers to whitening. To ensures that each procedure employs the latest techniques and technology, Dr. Ransom regularly attends continuing education seminars.
Dr. Sheela Parekh commits herself to staying on top of the latest dental technology and skills, which she achieves by taking various continuing-education courses. This allows her to keep chompers healthy with cosmetic and general dentistry services, utilize technology such as digital x-rays, and craft custom sleep-apnea gear. Her practice’s sedation options relieve fears of experiencing pain or having your teeth replaced with Chiclets for more comfortable appointments.

At Prodental, Dr. Matt Tabrizi leads an experienced team in wielding the latest technology during general, restorative, or cosmetic services. When treating gums, the space-age office eschews blades for a dental laser that reduces bleeding and swelling while also uncovering teeth’s retail value by scanning their barcodes. Digital x-rays reveal the hidden happenings of teeth while using up to 90% less radiation than their forebears. Needle-free anesthesia reduces both pain and anxiety during procedures, and invisible Invisalign trays take the place of bulky metal braces to effectively straighten smiles.
