Dr. Olugbenga Akinsanya at Vernon Dental Center knows that the entire face creates a nice smile, not just the teeth. That’s why he looks beyond the mouth by snapping cephalometric x-rays, a full-face x-ray that reveals the jaw’s relationship to the cheekbone. This x-ray helps give him a clear picture of the overall aesthetics of the face before conducting more detailed procedures, such as orthodontia or dental implants.
At Globus Dental, Dr. Nayaki Chirumamilla works closely with patients to develop the treatments best suited to them. She determines this through preventative examinations and advanced diagnostics. Comprehensive in scope, treatment options cover everything from fillings to full-mouth restorations. To ensure patient comfort during procedures, she also offers sedation dentistry to alleviate all anxieties and phobias.
At Rocky Hill Dental Care, Drs. Howard S. Korn and Grace Lo combine their skill sets to maintain smiles with expert preventive and cosmetic dental care. Dr. Howard culls his cosmetic specialties from nearly 40 years of experience and more than 1,000 hours of continuing education. Dr. Grace’s general dentistry expertise resulted in the invention of Tooth Tissues, a 99% naturally disposable wipe for babies and toddlers.
Rocky Hill Dental Care’s dentists promote a preventative approach to oral health with a strong dedication to safety and continued education to learn the most current dental technology and practices. In addition to extending the life of precious chompers, the polyglot staff⎯with proficiency in English, Spanish, French, Bosnian, and Cantonese⎯easily accommodate any patient, family, or UN meeting.
Most artisans begin training in their craft at a very young age, and Dr. Christopher Napolitano was no different. He began his apprenticeship in transforming smiles in high school, when he crafted dental prostheses at his father's lab every summer, gathering the experience and predilection for the color white that would spur him through dental school.
Today, Doctors Napolitano and Merchanthouse lead a staff through restorative and cosmetic treatments to repair and enhance pearlies in treatment rooms fitted with cable televisions and iPod docks. Digital x-rays in those rooms expose patients to less radiation than conventional machines and enable the dentists to discover hidden problems almost instantaneously. Beyond cleanings and preventative care, the crew performs restorative procedures that leave teeth healthy and appealing in case the mayor forgets the scissors at a ribbon-cutting ceremony.
