American Dental Arts furnishes private treatment rooms, where Dr. Homa Faridnia performs routine exams, root canals, and teeth-straightening Invisalign. Dr. Faridnia bulks up her brain with the latest developments in the dental field by regularly attending continuing-education classes and seminars hosted by the tooth fairy. She also spends her time volunteering with Heartworks, a group that doles out random acts of kindness to its community.
Visitors to Pearly Whites enjoy a departure from the staid interior of traditional dentists. Mint-green walls add a cheery tone to a waiting room decked out with flat-screen televisions and bean bag–style seats. Drs. Michael Skolnick and Brooke Skolnick also have pleasantly unorthodox ideas about dental technology. The husband-and-wife team corrects conditions with a Waterlase dental laser and a single-tooth anesthesia system, allowing them to completely avoid needles and drills. In each treatment room, televisions serve as pleasant distraction during cleanings. Ornate, sea-urchin-like chandeliers cast a glow across dark-stained hardwood floors and a gaming room.
At Summit Smiles, Doctors Gaurav Agarwal and Rajni Singh employ years of experience and sophisticated dental technology to fortify the long-term health of their patients’ precious chompers. A detailed exam screens mouths for signs of oral cancer and tooth decay, and a gentle cleaning treatment whittles away at tartar and challenges plaque to fisticuffs in molar back-alleys. This prophylaxis clears the way for a cleansing polish, floss, and topical fluoride application, keeping pearly-whites free from harmful bacteria. A digital bitewing x-ray exposes patients to minimal radiation as it captures a series of high-quality images to determine internal tooth health and expose clandestine cavities. In addition to fastidious dental care, Summit Smiles tends to stresses and frayed nerves with an efficient, paper-free, and technologically advanced office.
Summit Dentist accompanies its cosmetic, restorative, and general services with touches such as warm towels. Headphones and flat-screen televisions in every room comfort patients as Drs. Mindy Ok and Erin Welfel operate the latest dental equipment. Periodic seminars and a network of international spies keep the doctors informed on technologies such as tooth-colored fillings and Invisalign braces. They also use low-radiation digital x-rays and the Velscope cancer-screening light, which can detect tumors invisible to human eyes.
At Glamorous Smile Dental Spa, Dr. Sally Alkamary and her staff strive to keep teeth white and gums pink. Most of the time that means scheduling general dentistry services such as exams and cleanings. For more serious issues, like patients with an all-sugar diet, they'll also snap x-rays of patients' mouths.
Invisalign straightens crooked chompers through a combination of highly advanced, 3-D computer graphics and the spells of good old-fashioned orthodontia. Orthodontists specially trained and certified in the Invisalign process eschew cumbersome braces for clear, removable aligners that are virtually invisible to the unclothed eye. An initial exam, including x-rays and photos ($325), will pave the way for a flurry of calibrated teeth sheaths that are designed to slowly shift your walnut crackers into perfect alignment. The total cost of an Invisalign treatment varies with each customer (it can run anywhere from $2,000 to $8,000); this Groupon gets you $1,000 to put toward that final cost.
