Just because it's an old adage doesn't make it any less true: an ounce of prevention really is worth a pound of cure. Just ask the doctors at each American Dental of Florida location. At their practices, they avoid using the term "disease care." It's not because they don't know the ins and outs of tooth decay and periodontal disease; rather, they simply prefer to focus more on nipping possible problems in the bud instead of going through invasive treatments to fix their eventual aftermath. During regular exams and cleanings, they teach their patients how to clean, floss, and properly brush. They also point out habits to avoid—like consuming too much sugar, which is basically tooth enamel's evil twin. Of course, sometimes they still spot a cavity or other tooth trouble spot. Luckily, these dentists attend regular lectures and conventions that cover the latest techniques for procedures such as root canals and dental implants. They're also masters of cosmetic procedures as well, from single veneers to complete mouth restorations.
All Care Dental's team of dentists specializes in what they call "smile makeovers." These makeovers could involve veneers and lumineers that even out teeth or laser whitening treatments that remove stains caused by gargling with coffee grounds. No matter what the treatment, they aim to make patients?especially kids?feel safe and comfortable.
Dr. Knecht oversees a team of teeth technicians who keep chatter-factories in shipshape through a variety of cosmetic dental procedures. During the one-hour Opalescence Boost whitening treatment, Dr. Knecht slathers gumstones in a special gel with enamel-brightening ingredients designed to break up stains caused by drinking coffee, smoking cigarettes, or chewing on a giant Magic Marker. A healthy dose of fluoride minimizes any desensitizing effects to complete the whitening treatment.
Rejuvenate Your Skin's licensed facial specialist Mindi Birkenholz is like a detective when it comes to skin. The first case she ever cracked was her own. As a teenager, Ms. Birkenholz suffered from cystic acne, and she found no relief from over-the-counter treatments. For six years, she scoured medical journals and ultimately found the right combo of Vitamin A therapies, which cured her condition.
Today, with decades of experience and a graduation from aesthetics school under her belt, Ms. Birkenholz helps others find solutions to their skin issues. She examines a client's issue?whether it be acne, dry skin, or wrinkles?and comes up with the right plan of medical grade skin care, almost always kicking things off with an in-depth consultation. Then, factoring in price range and time, she might recommend chemical peels to remove blemishes, oxygen facials to restore skin, or various anti-aging treatments, such as microdermabrasion. The licensed medical staff can also administer cosmetic injectables, including Botox and fillers.

It wasn't enough for Dr. Paulo A. Sarria to earn two degrees as a doctor of dental medicine. Ever the overachiever, the bilingual denstist garnered honors in the field of prosthodontics and hones his skills by attending continuing-education courses in several fields of dentistry each year.
On any given day, however, Dr. Sarria is most likely to be found at Innovation Dental, where he and his staff put this expertise to use within a pristine, monochromatic office. In private rooms, they administer classic and advanced services ranging from cosmetic fillings to Invisalign treatments.
