Dr. Michael Caparas and his associates at each of the seven Metroplex Dental Care locations perform services using advanced technology, such as digital x-rays that release up to 90% less radiation and intraoral cameras. The doctors recommend a "sensible oral-health regimen," which includes regular dental exams, cleanings, and oral-cancer screenings. They help to repair existing maladies with restorative procedures such as root-canal therapy, and makeover smiles with veneers and whitening treatments. For sound sleep, the doctors fit apnea appliances and snore guards, ensuring that patients will no longer wake family members or lure a herd of migrating kazoos into the bedroom. Whatever the service, the doctors put patients at ease with their soothing chairside manner and variety of sedation options.
When he took over Capital Area Dentistry in June 2012, Dr. Bhavesh Bhakta brought with him a guiding philosophy that stressed the importance of building patients’ trust. Under his leadership, the once-inconsistent practice was transformed into a friendly, stable environment in which to receive oral health care. Through every dental implant, composite filling, and cleaning, he and the staff comfort and educate patients by explaining each step of the treatment. They even succeed with especially anxious patients, putting them at ease with nitrous oxide or by beatboxing the sounds of the rainforest.
Gayla was sipping an organic iced coffee as she strolled down Pennsylvania Avenue in Washington DC, contemplating her lifelong problem with stains. Whether spaghetti sauce on white shirts or the remnants of caffeinated drinks on teeth, stains bothered her deeply. Coffee. Stains. Teeth. That's when, walking by the White House—home to a Texan President at the time—she realized: everything's bigger in Texas, so why shouldn't that be true of their stains? She decided then to open an organic teeth-whitening spa in Austin. After her epiphany, Gayla gathered a team of beauty consultants, customer-service representatives, operations officers, and business consultants and opened My Texas Smile. She and her team pool their individual talents to brighten smiles for up to 12 months without using harsh chemicals.
Though you might not guess it, teamwork can be just as important as top-notch tools in the field of dentistry. At Arbor Dental Associates, Dr. Borgman maintains a strong bond with his staff that helps ensure every treatment goes over smoothly. Thirty years of experience has left him proficient in most every aspect of dentistry, from checkups and fillings to root canals. He’s worked with the same lab technicians for all of these 30 years, which is especially beneficial when he performs restorative and reconstructive dental procedures.
Since graduating from the prestigious University of Texas Health Science Center at San Antonio, Dr. James Lee has been practicing dentistry for more than 15 years. Now at Star Dental of Austin, Dr. Lee performs general family dentistry services alongside advanced restorative and cosmetic procedures, including dental implants and Invisalign treatments. He also performs fillings and root canals with Waterlase technology, a drilling alternative free of heat, pressure, and vibration that, like a stroll through a Las Vegas hotel fountain, features a laser and a refreshing spray of water.
Dr. John F. Lann has been helping patients maintain healthy smiles at Stonegate Dentistry since 1995. He and his team of dental hygienists take a comprehensive approach to care with each and every patient, performing in-depth dental exams and using x-rays to reveal any cavities. Though dental health is his primary focus, Dr. Lann also performs cosmetic procedures, including whitening treatments and orthodontics.
Dr. Ahmad Ahmadian is not your average dentist. Prior to earning a degree in dentistry from the University of Texas Health Science Center, he was fabricating crowns and bridges from the comfort of his own dental laboratory. This experience instilled in him a love for high-quality prosthetics, which he now furnishes patients with from his post at Smile Gallery. Amid the yellow and green walls of the modern, 2,500-square-foot office, Dr. Ahmadian leads his staff in seamlessly restoring smiles with tooth-colored resins and natural-looking crowns. During any procedure, he seeks to keep clients informed about their dental health as well as all available treatment options and anticandy mantras.
