For more than seven years, Healthy Smile Dental Hygiene’s registered dental hygienist Isabel Da Silva has been living out her dream of working one-on-one with patients inside her private practice. Her exuberance for such specialties as teeth whitening, oral cancer screenings, and pit and fissure sealant applications has led her to share her expertise by teaching at dental hygiene schools and serving as a clinic coordinator at Medix School in Brampton. Efficient and organized, Isabel’s office keeps waiting to a minimum, preventing bored patients from organizing thumb twirling Battle Royales.
At Pure Image, you won’t find any stations manned by manicurists, makeup artists, or dental hygienists. Neither a spa nor a dentist's office, this friendly facility is dedicated entirely to teeth-whitening procedures. Here, experienced technicians pair a potent peroxide gel with cool blue LED lights to whiten teeth up to eight shades. To aid in client comfort, they prop smiles with cheek refactors and apply the gel directly to the teeth without dental trays, which minimizes mouth sensitivity and the odds of walking out of the office while still wearing a dental tray. They also use Power Swabs loaded with a foam-based gel that lifts stains dwelling deep in the enamel.
In addition to brightening teeth in the Pure Image office, technicians help clients maintain alabaster enamel at home with cosmetic products such as touch-up pens, peroxide-free whitening foams, and shine-enhancing tooth gloss.
At Snow White Smiles, dental hygienist Alie Preisig eschews the clinical atmosphere of a traditional dentist's office, trading the whirring drills and faint odor of Novocaine for soothing music and aromatherapy. Focusing solely on dental hygiene—not medical dentistry—she and her staff specialize in preventative and cosmetic services ranging from teeth cleaning and cancer screening to teeth whitening and sealants. They also help clients manage every aspect of their oral health, helping them to quit tobacco or hosting a fresh-breath clinic so as to stop killing window plants when singing them lullabies. While encouraging healthy smiles, the office immerses patients in a relaxing atmosphere, with massaging dental chairs and flat-screen TVs in every treatment room.
