For more than 30 years, the team at Community Dental Center has kept its office updated with the latest dental technology. During exams, Drs. Helen Jafari and Jane Herrington scan enamel with Diagnodent lasers to catch signs of tooth decay at its earliest stage. Intraoral cameras show full-color, detailed images of teeth on a digital monitor, and digital x-rays peer through teeth and bone while emitting less radiation than traditional x-rays.
At Radiant Smiles Dental, P.A., Dr. Akudo Laura Ekwem and her staff help patients smile with abandon, unselfconscious about the teeth they reveal. To accomplish this, they perform dental services that range from braces that correct misalignments to implants that fill in for vacationing teeth. Clients can also avail themselves to reversible cosmetic fixes, such as Lumineers or a Snap-On Smile, which cover misshapen or discolored incisors. While waiting to meet with Dr. Ekwem, patients lounge in black-leather chairs amid the waiting room’s lime-green walls.
While the staffers at Summit Dental Center treat patients of all ages, they go the extra mile to give kids a reason to look forward to their dental visits. A play area entertains young patients before their turn in the dental chair. After a routine checkup, cavity filling, or orthodontic session, they leave the office with a gift bag filled with toys, supplies for oral hygiene, and a spring-loaded trap for capturing tooth fairies. Summit Dental Center's professionals even spoke to reporters at Fox 26 News about different ways to help kids keep their teeth healthy during the school year.
Westwood Dental is a network of five Houston-area dental offices, each one home to highly experienced dentists skilled in a broad spectrum of specialties to ensure patients can turn to a single clinic for all of their mouth’s needs. Services range from simple preventative checkups to oral surgery to pulling out extra teeth so you have a safe spot to store your gummi bears.
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.
The dentists at iSmile Specialists know what it takes to improve their patients’ smiles. They’ve mastered a slew of cosmetically minded procedures—such as braces, dentures, and veneers—to make smiles look more uniform. This isn’t to say that they ignore dental health, however; they also provide care for gum disease, perform root canals, and insert dental implants.
