Since receiving her D.D.S. degree in 1993, Dr. Sheila Shahamat has pursued many forms of dentistry, including cosmetic and orthodontic. Patients of Crown Point Dental Care can take advantage of Dr. Shahamat's advanced studies by augmenting their smiles with services that range from dental implants and TMJ treatments to Invisalign and Zoom! whitening.

For more than 35 years, dentists at American Dental Centers have polished pearly whites and prevented dental disease with thorough exams. At each of the 14 locations that dot Northern and Central Ohio, patients walk in or schedule appointments so they don’t have to scrape off plaque using chew toys. The center maintains a 24-hour phone line so that patients can arrange to have emergencies treated as soon as possible, and it also offers a Forever White program, in which patients pay a one-time fee and then receive take-home bleaching treatments for as long as they attend their regular three- or six-month check-ups.
Dr. Barry Gibberman has dedicated more than three decades of his working life to improving patients' dental hygiene. After years of helping manage clinical trials for Crest toothpaste at Procter & Gamble, he opened a family practice. He now spends his days removing disease and decay from mouths and beautifying smiles with dentures, veneers, and Invisalign teeth-straightening retainers?so named for their ability to make crooked teeth invisible. Dr. Gibberman still acts as a consultant for Procter & Gamble. He even served as the point person to introduce Crest Whitestrips to the public on the QVC channel.
A Toledo native, Dr. George Namay set up shop in his hometown to practice general, restorative, and cosmetic dentistry with an artist’s touch and a gentle approach.

His expertise also extends to bridges, implants, and teeth whitening using the speedy Zoom! system, which brightens smiles in less than an hour.
During his three decades of dental experience, which included a six-year stint as a general dental officer for the United States Air Force, Dr. John N. Santin has seen a lot of smiles.

But teeth aren’t the only thing on Dr. Santin’s mind. He also provides his patients with a range of cosmetic treatments, from rhinoplasty and facial implants to Botox injections and chemical peels. The offices even come equipped with advanced ActiveFX and DeepFX fractional lasers, which are designed to blast away layers of sun damage, dead skin cells, and temporary tattoos that seeped down into the dermal layer.
