The comprehensive oral exam checks your gums and each of your 132 teeth for signs of decay, sensitivity, and other oral hobgoblins ($95), and the four x-rays check the health of tooth roots ($70). Following the exam, the dentist will perform a thorough prophylaxis inside your face, scrubbing down enamelware and removing all traces of plaque and tartar ($76), providing squeaky-clean food demolishers and ensuring that the Zoom! bleaching kit with custom trays can go directly to work on surface discolorations ($295). Use today's deal to fuse practicality and aesthetic values into one. Call ahead to schedule your appointment.
Dr. Mandy grew up in Europe and learned several languages, but as she got older, she decided to focus on the language of teeth. She earned an undergraduate degree from Concordia University, a molecular-biology certificate from the University of Quebec, and finally a dental degree from the New York University College of Dentistry. After practicing dentistry in Boston for 12 years, Dr. Mandy relocated to Fort Lauderdale in pursuit of sunshine, which shows off beautiful teeth better than overcast weather.
At Coral Ridge Smile, she performs treatments that range from routine cleanings to complex surgeries with the same gentle touch, always using her personal warmth to make guests feel at ease. Her practice is outfitted with advanced technologies including low-radiation digital x-ray machines that reveal cavities in teeth, unlike the gamma ray machines that reveal cavities in the fabric of space. Dr. Mandy also rejuvenates aging skin with injections of Botox and Juvéderm. Visitors to the practice can sip complimentary refreshments in the waiting room, a pleasant space decorated with flowers and paper lamps.
There's a reason why the teeth of Dr. Tatiana Herzog's patients often look brand new—they are. Her specialty is implant dentistry, a technique she honed at The Misch International Implant Institute after getting her dental degree from Howard University. Nowadays, she and Galt Family Dentistry's Dr. Douglas Pyser also install dental implants and perform other types of restorative and cosmetic dentistry, including fillings, crowns, and veneers. Their practice has been in operation for more than two decades, but you wouldn't know it from looking at their exam rooms. Each one is outfitted with digital x-ray machines and a flatscreen TV often tuned to The Dentist's Channel.
The dentists and staff at Sierra Dental mollify mouths with a plethora of tooth-sprucing services administered in brightly colored, relaxing offices. During the exam, a mouth expert will investigate enamel for signs of disease and decay, pausing only to interview suspicious-looking molars. Teeth whitening aims to banish surface stains using a gel applied directly to teeth and activated with a specialized light. X-rays let dentists' peepers plumb oral façades in search of issues, and a cleaning expels debris built up from years of brushing teeth with debris.
Dr. Patty’s Dental Boutique and Spa, which references the nickname given to her by her patients, and bills itself as "South Florida's First Dental Spa", doesn’t take it personally that many of her patients don’t like the dentist. Instead, Dr. April Patterson does what she can to help. “There are about 30 to 40 million Americans that suffer from dental anxiety,” she said during a segment on Good Morning America. “I wanted to do everything I can to make those clients feel like they are not at the dentist.” So she bolstered her routine dental services—preventative care, implants, bridges, whitening, crowns, and braces—with a full spa menu. The result is Dr. Patty’s Dental Boutique and Spa, which references the nickname given to her by her patients. And it’s not just the soothing, spa-like atmosphere that calms clients, she says, “A client … coming in to have their dental veneers done [can] come in an hour early, and they can have a facial or a massage while their Valium kicks in… they come in to start their dental procedure and they’re nice and relaxed.” Her aestheticians adhere faux eyelashes to lids, arch eyebrows, and artfully apply permanent makeup. Dr. Patty also administers facial rejuvenation treatments such as Botox, Juvéderm, Dysport, and more. Additional services include invigorating lemon-scented warm towel service, silky paraffin-wax treatment for hands, temple massage therapy, refreshing cucumber eye presses, and personalized movie and music selections. Clients can also enjoy access to a spa locker room with many amenities such as complimentary robes, slippers, and a private shower area available for use before and after treatments.
Family Dentistry of South Florida's courageous league of dentists serves, protects, and brightens pearly whites with a lineup of preventive and cosmetic services. During the Zoom! whitening treatment, an enamel advocate isolates teeth from gums before coating each gumstone in a light-activated hydrogen peroxide gel. Discolored teeth then bask under the glow of a special lamp that restores incandescence to chompers in about one hour. A single smile-enhancing session can whiten cuisine crushers up to eight shades, flushing away the effects of chugging coffee, swirling wine, and biting rainbows.
