Absolute Dental Hygiene Associates' team composed of hygienists, a dentist, and a denturist searches for cavities, installs implant-supported dentures, and replaces decay with tooth-coloured fillings inside an office cushioned by spa-like amenities. Patients watch flat-screen televisions, lie on aromatherapy pillows, and dip their hands in warm, scented paraffin baths during dental treatments. Before their appointments, they can relax in front of the office's electric fireplace, which burns kindling from electric trees, and sip coffee, tea, or juice.
Registered dental hygienist Tania Egher helms Pearly White Smiles, a dental-hygiene clinic where she welcomes patients of all ages for routine teeth cleanings and checkups. After filling out the medical-history form on the computer—the office is completely paperless—patients settle into an upholstered dental chair that’s crafted with different layers of foam density for added comfort. Tania then gets to work on brightening smiles up to eight shades with peroxide gel and an LED light. Children can spend time in the waiting area watching cartoons, playing video games, or calculating how many tears it takes to get a pony for Christmas.
Sleek white couches sit pristinely below a modernist chandelier, overlooking a manicured row of bamboo stalks. If guests arriving in Thornhill Smile Centre's waiting room feel as though they have taken a wrong turn into a nearby spa, that's no accident: Dr. Hagi and his corps of teeth-cleaning experts have worked for years to create the most comfortable, relaxing dental experience possible. Once inside treatment rooms, guests sink further into luxury, snuggling beneath warm blankets and using contoured pillows to cradle necks while remaining en garde for an impromptu pillow fight. Gentle vibrations massage backs during procedures while satellite radio or HDTV further distract minds from treatments. All the while, top-of-the-line technology streamlines experiences, with virtual mouth modeling, digital X-rays, and noise-dampened hand pieces.
No matter which of Polar Dental Centers’ five full-service offices a client visits, the friendly staff and doctors strive to provide a high standard of care. That's because each dentist is certified in a range of specialized treatment, including cosmetic dentistry, gum disease treatment, and teeth straightening. The centres also administer emergency care to deal with with intense pain or dumb, wisdom-less molars.
Dr. Stewart Fenigstein has worn the title of “dentist” for nearly three decades. Over the years, his practice has adapted to new techniques and technology such as Zoom teeth whitening and Invisalign, but has always remained dedicated to providing clients with a caring environment. The first time Dr. Fenigstein meets patients, he takes time to lay down the foundation for a long-term relationship. He listens to their concerns, medical history, and perhaps a haiku or two they’ve composed about the office waiting room. Then, he becomes familiar with the patient’s mouth by scrutinizing teeth with his own eyes as well as with panoramic and bitewing x-rays.
As the official dentist of the ever-cheerful Buffalo Jills, Dr. Douglas Hamill, DDS, knows a thing or two about smiles. He calls upon years of teaching and professional dental experience to assist his team during both routine visits and more intensive treatments.
