Dr. Christian Hoybjerg loves change. As an orthodontist, he gets to see smiles change and self-esteem levels soar as his corrective treatments shift teeth into straight formation. Working alongside Dr. Nathan Adams, they work together as dentist and orthodontist to help their patients achieve flawless smiles. Both doctors were educated at Loma Linda University Dental School, and keep right on learning with continuing-education courses and trainings in the latest procedures. Some common conditions he ameliorates include crowded teeth, underbites, and overbites.
Dedicated to high-quality family and cosmetic orthodontics, Dr. Jeremy West designs and executes dazzling reasons to smile. Invisalign straightens crooked chompers with a combination of highly advanced 3-D computer graphics and the spells of old-fashioned orthodontia, eschewing cumbersome braces for clear, removable aligners that are virtually invisible to the unclothed eye. An initial 30-minute exam—including x-rays, photos, and impressions of your mouth terrain—paves the way for a flurry of calibrated teeth sheaths that are designed to slowly shift your natural walnut-cracking tools into perfect alignment. While the total cost of an Invisalign treatment varies for each customer ($2,000–$8,000), this Groupon gets you $1,000 toward the final cost. View some Invisalign FAQs here.
After earning his dental degree at the University of the Pacific in San Francisco, Modesto native Galen Filbrun returned home to practice cosmetic, laser, and implant dentistry. Filbrun uses the latest effective techniques, such as laser therapy, to treat gum disease, disinfecting the gums while disintegrating diseased tissue. He also performs non-surgical root canals and can fit patients with dentures or wind-up chatter teeth. Cosmetic procedures and treatments available include teeth-whitening and porcelain veneers.
A member of five prestigious dental associations, Dr. Scott Winter renovates mouths with state-of-the-art technology turning yellow, stained teeth sparkling white. The dedicated doctor of dentistry whips up custom-made mouth guards that fit teeth precisely, ensuring rogue canines can’t escape from the stain obliterating clutches of the whitening agent. Patients receive an ADA-approved peroxide gel to coax the yellow from teeth in case your coffee-baited mousetrap fails. Chompers may be revamped with whitening gels intended for use twice a day for two weeks or for overnight use for one to two weeks. Whitening may leave teeth a bit sensitive for a short period of time, but sensitivity should fade after the treatment ends.
After several years as a clinical chemist, Richard Amstadter decided he would rather treat patients than work in a lab. So he enrolled at the University of San Francisco School of Dentistry, the first stop on a path that culminated in his own Modesto practice. His services?personalized for every patient?range from routine dental-hygiene checkups to fitting mouths with crowns, veneers, and Invisalign braces. To ensure comfort every step of the way, he relies on tools such as digital X-ray machines and CAD/CAM technology, which swiftly manufactures crowns so patients needn?t schedule multiple visits or erect a campsite in the waiting room.
