When Dr. Gretchen Hoover purchased About Smiles’ dental facility, she was dissatisfied with the look and feel of the practice. So she and her husband remodeled the office themselves, adding amenities such as a gourmet coffee bar, free WiFi, and cable TV in every room.
Dr. Hoover’s vision, drive, and commitment to her patients’ comfort are also apparent in her approach to dentistry. She draws on the most advanced technology available as she performs preventive, cosmetic, and restorative services for adults and children. Intraoral cameras provide a close-up view of teeth, and low-radiation digital x-rays, panoramic x-rays, and computer 3-D scans reveal details invisible to both the naked eye and a dog's sense of smell. Computer-assisted CEREC technology allows Dr. Hoover to create crowns for patients in one visit.
