In one private dental-treatment room, a patient reclines while swaddled in a soft blanket, listening to Sirius XM radio. Next door, in a chamber dedicated to Zoom! whitening, Sony movie glasses transmit moving pictures as dinginess leaches from teeth. According to hygienist Jenn Martin, regular patients like to call Prestige Dentistry "a spa for their teeth," as comfort is paramount in this modern office paneled in golden wood and cream-colored walls. Staying at the forefront of technology with an all-digital office, the dentists peer at biters with interoral cameras and look beneath surfaces with digital x-rays, which, like transcripts of the president's personal phone calls, can be viewed from any computer in the office. An onsite lab and mill enable crowns and any other tooth-replacement options to be forged on the same day as a patient's visit. Prestige Dentistry's staff regularly reaches out to the community with informational events, including visits to schools and adult-care facilities. During the field trips, the professionals explain how good dental care contributes to overall health and better times during no-hands pie-eating contests.
Dr. Dang Ha will do almost anything to get patients the dental care they need, even if it means knocking them out. The Tampa Bay–born Tufts University graduate focuses in sedation dentistry, which removes the hurdle of anxiety from services such as bridge work, implants, and cosmetic procedures. Indeed, Dr. Ha's entire practice is designed to induce a state of calm—from the soothing manner of the staff to the softly lit, buttercup-yellow walls of the office to the gentle whale songs each hygienist has been trained to sing.
Tampa-area native Dr. Dang Ha founded Palm Harbor Sedation and Family Dentistry to serve the community's common dental needs. Regular exams and prophylactic cleanings for kids and adults keep teeth healthy and nip emerging problems in the bud. The office also addresses issues such as chipped enamel, missing teeth, and uvulas that have suddenly gained the ability to sing opera.
