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.
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.
A quartet of dentists at Dental Smile Therapy attend to all oral health concerns with services ranging from general checkups and whitening treatments to extractions and implants. They use the latest technology—such as Invisalign’s clear plastic teeth aligners—to ensure quality care, and they fill their treatment rooms with natural light to create a warm, inviting environment. By offering sedation during procedures, the staff can also foster comfortable visits for even the most apprehensive patients.
