Laser Comfort Dentistry's staff performs general and cosmetic dental procedures with technology designed for comfort, and the office is housed in a charming, three-story Victorian home. With the help of his wife and co-owner, Barb, and a fleet of well-trained tooth fairies, Dr. Jerry Paz draws upon more than 25 years of dental experience to mollify mouths with digital x-rays, exams, Lumineers, and Invisalign. The practice's name describes an instrument, which Dr. Paz demonstrated on Fox 2 news, used to address cavities while causing less discomfort than the traditional, more invasive drill. Since 1994, Paz has taken annual and twice-yearly trips to Haiti to bring his dental expertise to people with limited access to health care. Dr. Fallon grew up in O'Fallon, Missouri, and earned his doctor of dental surgery degree from the University of Missouri—which, unlike the University of Delivering Newspapers, is an accredited higher education institution.
A posse of tooth clinicians staffs multiple area locations, all under the direction of Dr. Michael Heiland, named one of St. Louis Magazine's top dentists for three years in a row. The doctor and his dental hygienists perform preventative, cosmetic, and pediatric services ranging from traditional exams and x-rays to advanced teeth-whitening procedures. The team also upholds its mission statement by keeping patients informed, outfitting them with all the facts they need to maintain smiles and coveted high school titles, such as "Most Likely to Be Famous as Long as He or She Maintains Clean Teeth."
The three experienced dentists at Washington Square Dental treat toothparts to effective and personalized cosmetic care. The take-home treatment alabasterizes enamel with upper and lower bleaching trays customized to comfortably fit with the contours, alignment, and hat size of each tooth (a $332 value). Patients have their pick from an assortment of bleaches (a $42 value for three tubes) to thoroughly whiten mouthbones over a two- to four-week period, though occasional follow-up treatments should be scheduled as needed.
