Drs. Chris and Kristie Vinson helm Tulsa Precision Dental, where they welcome patients for general, restorative, and cosmetic dentistry. Using the latest in dental technology and techniques—such as digital x-rays and invisible braces—they work on enhancing smiles. Though they’re equipped to deal with periodontal disease and fix dental problems with such restoration treatments as root canals, implants, and composite fillings, they stress preventive care through annual exams. They also stress the importance of brushing twice a day, noting that it’s especially important at night if you don’t want to scare away the Sandman.
Dr. Bert Franklin cares for smiles with a full range of preventive, corrective, and cosmetic dental services for which he pursues continuing education. A Tulsa native, Dr. Franklin headed to the University of Oklahoma College of Dentistry to earn his toothy know-how. From there, he heeded the call of southern climes such as Mexico and Barbados, where he helped to found dental clinics for the underprivileged. Dr. Franklin then returned to Tulsa to build the Signature Smiles of Tulsa practice upon his charitable and worldly experiences.
At The Perfect Smile, Dr. Mark Davis and his experienced staff use their whitening prowess to put teeth on the path to enlightenment. During the first visit, clients will be greeted with a complimentary snack and drink before being escorted to a memory-foam-padded chair for an examination (a $78 value). Using low-radiation digital x-ray technology that produces instantaneous images, Dr. Davis will take an electromagnetic snapshot of the client’s entire mouth (a $100 value) and then perform a ritualistic dental cleaning (valued at $85) as the patient listens to tunes or watches digital TV. To conclude the show, visitors are gifted with a whitening kit (valued at $140) of gel and a custom-fitted tray to match the bite-sized terrain inside their mouths. Because the content of bleaching is inappropriate for kids under 16, two PG-13-rated sealants may be substituted instead.
Led by Dr. Steven Deem—a one-man gleam team with 30 years of dental experience—Dentistry for You excels by using the latest technology, such as digital radiograph x-rays for more accurate diagnostics and less radiation. Dentistry for You strictly adheres to its name, providing patients with a range of professional treatments that ensure and maintain beautiful smiles and dental health to keep teeth functioning as back-up flashlights for amateur spelunkers.
Dr. Lauren Whenry never wants fear of the dentist to come between a patient and his or her smile. With a gentle chairside manner, she educates patients on what to expect before filling cavities, affixing Lumineers veneers, or measuring bites for Invisalign braces. Her special training in sedation dentistry allows her to customize oral sedatives for patients who are especially nervous or preparing for more involved treatments.
