Dr. Karen Besler and Dr. Laura Ross team up to helm Dental Associates of Cedar Rapids, where they improve smiles with Invisalign and veneers and ensure improved oral hygiene with general checkups for patients of all ages. They attend to patients during convenient early morning and evening hours, as well as one Saturday a month, and keep a staff member on call for dental emergencies, such as when a patient cracks a tooth or grows baleen. Additionally, Dr. Besler promotes dentistry worldwide, helping to raise funds to equip a dental clinic in Kipkaren, Kenya.
Lifepoint Dental Partners is a dental practice that uses minimally invasive techniques, which include composite resin fillings that blend in with enamel. Invisalign braces keep metal out of mouths as they guide teeth into more aesthetically pleasing positions. And the team probes mouthscapes with digital x-rays that emit up to 80% less radiation than traditional x-rays.
Dr. Paul Black brings 25 years of dental experience to his cosmetic procedures and Invisalign treatments. State-of-the-art equipment, like the Itero Digital Impression, ensures teeth emerge looking their best after orthodontic or whitening sessions, and high-quality implants allow patients to bite through even the toughest turkey leg.
Dr. Hagarty and his toothy team inspect, clean, whiten, and repair incisors and molars alike at Hagarty Family Dental. With a father and brother who are also dentists, Dr. Hagarty spent his formative years watching dental procedures and performed his first root canals at age 4 on a set of Hungry Hungry Hippos. During an exam (a $75 value), each smile will be visually checked for healthiness and wear, followed by four bitewing x-rays (a $58 value) and, if needed, a panoramic x-ray (a $105 value). Each tooth is then freed from its sheath of plaque and tartar during a cleaning (an $86 value). An overhead television offers a welcome distraction for patient eyeballs, and a massaging chair provides a welcome relief for tense backs. Should a customer's insurance cover the exam and cleaning, Hagarty Family Dental will credit the cost of the Groupon toward any further treatment needs.
Dr. Dennis Yossi approaches dentistry with an innovatively non-terrifying philosophy focused on minimizing pain and eliminating the onus of oral shame. After the initial exam for the Whitening for Life program, an incisor scourer will make a mold of your mashers and supply two weeks' worth of bicuspid bleach, which sparkles up mouth bones without the need for diamond-dust toothpaste. These oral artistes will provide fresh coats of bleach as long as their canine canvases return biannually (every six months). The office's guilt-free policy means that if patients are lectured or made to feel guilty about their use of floss for games of cat's cradle, the exam and x-rays are free. New patients may request their first appointment online.
Dr. John McGrane does it all, from general dental checkups to Invisalign orthodontics. With more than 20 years of experience under his belt, Dr. McGrane is comfortable with most every type of dental treatment. Among his specialties, he expedites tooth-restoration procedures with advanced CEREC technology. This piece of equipment allows him to digitally map a patient's mouth, create a porcelain restoration, and attach the replacement without the need for multiple visits or having to chip a tooth off the statue of David. Along with his dental team, Dr. McGrane makes a concerted effort not only to provide quality dental care but also to truly connect with his patients.
