Dr. Nabil Youssef manages the team at Orange Avenue Dentistry, channeling the spirited sense of duty that led him to serve in Afghanistan as a major in the US Air Force Reserve. His hygienist, Ahmed Taha, performed dentistry in Saudi Arabia before bringing 20 years' worth of expertise to Orlando. The diverse, compassionate staff receives patients warmly, welcoming English and Spanish speakers alike to the bilingual office.
Their services cover a wide range of medical and cosmetic procedures, including fillings, root canals, whitening, crowns, and Invisalign straightening. A reliance on digital technology has enabled the practice to go paperless, a choice that preserves trees and prevents clients from consulting cootie catchers to decide on a treatment.
The tech-savvy engineers behind DaVinci Teeth Whitening brighten smiles by activating a special lamp that works in tandem with a whitening solution or equipping clients with a powerful do-it-yourself gel that an American lab makes fresh every week. All of DaVinci's treatments work to rid teeth of lackluster hues, clingy stains, and embarrassing love letters to dentists without weakening tooth enamel.
Dr. Milton Clement, DDS started out honing his craft in both cosmetic and general dentistry, but it was this background that helped him dive headlong into implant dentistry. Working with implants, Dr. Clement explores the art of repairing clients' mouths with new custom-fitted false teeth or tasty Chiclets as necessary. He's been filling mouths for more than a quarter century, and now helms his own team at a bright, family-friendly office. Though Clement's dental practice specializes in implants, other popular procedures range from general exams and fillings to dental surgery and enamel shaping. The studio diagnoses many of these issues using high-tech gear such as same-day CT scans and digital x-rays.
Dr. Jose Marcano, DMD, draws from more than 20 years of dentistry expertise and numerous continuing-education classes to lead his staff in the fight for healthy smiles. His practice is a mostly "drill-free" facility, thanks to his use of air abrasion and advanced lasers for cosmetic and restorative treatments. During routine dental exams, technicians scan teeth for trouble spots, such as cavities, tartar buildup, or picketing molars demanding more candy, before snapping panoramic and bitewing x-rays to gain insight into inner-enamel precincts. The staff further revamps teeth with a full spectrum of services, from veneers to Zoom! whitening to Invisalign aligners.
Since attaining a fellowship in implantology, Michael Koyfman, DMD, has been a player in the evolution of restoration dentistry. He reinforces every patient's smile with hundreds of hours of continuing education and clinical research through the Dental Practice-Based Research Network. Dr. Koyfman offers patients several variations on traditional implants and wind-up dentures: the CEREC procedure eschews tooth impressions for fast, 3-D imaging, and the all-on-four procedure accomplishes full-arch restorations with four implants instead of the customary eight. Dr. Koyfman also pushes the boundaries of dental techniques by using a CT scan, which allows him to make more accurate measurements and provide better treatments for his clients.
Dr. Koyfman's practice is versatile. Looking beyond crowns and abutments, he and his staff oversee orthodontic services, such as Invisalign aligners, as well as cosmetic services, such as Zoom teeth whitening.
After waiting by the sandy walls and staring at beach photographs in the lobby, patients at Lake Baldwin Dental might mistake their treatment room for a private cabana, especially after reclining in a leather chair with a personal screen that broadcasts movies, TV shows, and music. Patients relax further with noise-canceling headphones that diminish the sounds of dental instruments or with dental sedation, which can help clients with dental phobias find a sense of serenity.
Dr. William Dunn and Dr. Kathleen Anderson then get to work, addressing cosmetic concerns with complimentary smile makeover consultations that can lead to Zoom! whitening services, porcelain veneers, and implants. Their medical offerings range from inconspicuous fillings to cosmetic services.
