At James A. Burden, D.D.S. & Associates, comfort and care pave the road to healthy smiles. Here, more than 20 staffers welcome patients with warm personalities and homey accoutrements such as televisions, toys, and a children's stool shaped like an oversized tooth. A duo of dentists—Drs. Burden and Maharty—performs the full gamut of services, from checkups and cleanings to cosmetic treatments such as Invisalign and custom-made veneers. Armed with advanced training in dental implants, Dr. Burden fills mouth gaps with sturdy, natural-looking prosthetic teeth rather than marshmallows shaped like vampire fangs. The dentists also ease patient anxiety with either laughing gas or a pill that produces a mild, conscious sedation, and accommodate busy-bees with early morning and evening appointment slots.
Living up to its name, the physician-supervised Skin Renaissance Clinic gives skin a new lease on life with a full slate of laser and facial treatments. A registered nurse wields Matrix IR technology to blast wrinkles, and slough away imperfections with microdermabrasion and chemical peels. They cull from Obagi and SkinMedica products to lavish faces with anti-aging serums, tapping into the skin’s self-healing and homework-deflecting properties.
Dr. Michael Folck calls upon his 25-year career in cosmetic dentistry to expertly renovate smiles and keep clients whistling healthy tunes through their shiny, well-aligned teeth. His sedation dentistry keeps patients comfortable, and his laser-dentistry treatments bring teeth back to brilliance in tandem with maintenance services such as fillings, gum reductions, and whitening treatments. The office rounds out its advanced technology set with digital x-rays, which provide a crisp perspective and emit significantly less radiation than traditional beams or the unmarked barrels that catalyze most superheroes' beginnings.
Dr. John Monsman helms Colonial Heights Dental, blending his allegiance to traditional dental care with ultra-modern treatment modalities. He draws upon 22 years of experience and extensive training to perform procedures ranging from fluoride treatments and sealants to crowns, root canals, and oral surgery. He also improves oral appearances with cosmetic treatments including Zoom! teeth whitening and Invisalign, which straightens smiles without braces or a really boring birthday wish. Not content to simply rest on his reputation, Dr. Monsman also embraces education, sponsoring continued training for himself and his staff and enlightening patients with tips for at-home care.
At Murry & Kuhn Dentistry, Drs. Donald Murry Jr., Ken Murry, Don Murry III, Brittney Murry, and Todd Kuhn focus on keeping teeth in top-notch form with routine cleanings, veneers, dental implants, and whitening services. They use a slew of technologies during appointments, straightening chompers with traditional orthodontics or Invisalign clear braces and revealing hidden medical issues with digital x-rays. The digital units allow the dentists to show patients images quickly, and they produce less radiation than a traditional x-ray machine or Superman doing pushups. Murry & Kuhn Dentistry recently opened a new office in Chesterfield.
At Midlothian Family Dentistry, Drs. Robert A. Sorenson and William R. Monacell work to erase the perception that dental offices have to be scary. In doing so, they rely on more than just a gentle chair-side demeanor; they help guide patients step-by-step through general, cosmetic, and reconstructive treatments with optional oral-conscious sedation. This tool allows patients to stay awake and responsive—a helpful option for patients leery about "going under" with general anesthesia or the dentist's slideshow of his trip to Alaska.
