Smith Family Dental's Drs. Steven and Morgan Smith have designed their office to keep patients as comfortable as possible?both during and after appointments. Once in the chair, patients can don pairs of Bose surround-sound headphones and watch movies or shows playing on the ceiling-mounted TVs. Nitrous oxide soothes patients before treatments, especially when it's coupled with one of the office's blankets, pillows. After root canals or fillings, the team can use OraVerse reverse anesthetic, which helps restore feeling to the lips and gums.
After completing his degree in dentistry, Dr. Daniel West stepped up his game by signing on for an additional 100-plus hours of continuing education, including a residency in dental implants. This expertise comes in handy on a daily basis at his practice, where Dr. West crafts porcelain crowns and veneers in minutes using a special CEREC machine. The doctor also uses technology for preventive care, including an intraoral camera to get a close-up of chompers and digital x-rays to check teeth’s inner chambers for squatting cavities.
Dr. Wahlstrom’s expertise is not only in cosmetic, restorative, and surgical dentistry, but also in patient comfort. In his office, patients can relax while gazing at large photographic murals of mountains, trees, and ponds as he utilizes the latest technology to make procedures as quick and effective as possible. He also offers online appointment booking to keep visits convenient.
Two years after graduating from USC's School of Dentistry with a spot on the dean's list, Dr. Amira Hassan moved to Salt Lake City and opened Elite Dental Care. Today, she and her staff provide families with an array of dentistry services, including checkups and teeth whitening. They also offer branded services, such as Invisalign?known far and wide for effectively straightening teeth and being the only invisible thing on Earth. Elite Dental Care accepts Medicaid and most dental insurance plans.
Dr. Randall and his staff at Quarry Bend Dental help teeth and gums to health. Before the roughly 80-minute dental exam, Dr. Randall snaps a series of 18 bitewing x-rays and scans soft tissues and gums for potentially cancerous lesions; he'll also gladly consult with any patients interested in cosmetic improvements or sharper tusks. A basic cleaning scours teeth's nooks and crannies, banishing loitering debris from its molar lodgings. At the end of the treatment, the staff hands patients a warm towel to daub their mouths or tie on as a cape to mark a transformation into the Oral Health Avenger.
With a skilled touch and a wealth of experience supplemented with updated training, Dr. Dave Anderson makes those in his chair feel at ease. The surgeon specializes in dental and maxillofacial procedures, though he and his team also dispatch less-intensive treatments, such as Botox injections and oral-cancer screenings. Patients appreciate the practice's high-tech gear, friendly staff, and skillfully conducted services, but Creekside's upsides don't end there. The team cares for patients before and after their surgeries, too, by stocking the office's website with pre- and post-op resources patients can refer to at home.
