At Central Valley Dentistry, the doctor and staff combine compassion and the latest technology, such as intraoral cameras, to provide stress-free and effective dental services. Like the intraoral camera, the digital x-rays they use give a more comprehensive view of the mouth while also reducing exposure to radiation. Furthering the ease of each appointment, their CEREC equipment makes it possible for the dentist to repair teeth with high-quality ceramic material in one visit.
Gentle Hands Dentistry’s dedication to its name is evident from the moment patients walk in the door. Friendly staff members provide a warm welcome in the reception area, and point visitors in the direction of two cushy, overstuffed leather couches. Though they strive not to keep patients waiting, kids and kids-at-heart can while away any extra minutes with a Nintendo 64 game console. A nearby television also plays helpful videos on topics such as tipping the tooth fairy or the importance of flossing.
When appointments begin, Dr. Avis M. Sadre—who served in the US Air Force caring for military personnel—uses state-of-the-art diagnostic equipment and technology to pinpoint oral health issues. New digital-imaging software allows her to formulate and explain treatment plans in a more convenient, clear, and time-efficient way. To further put guests at ease, Dr. Sadre's team of dental hygienists receives specialized training on how to make each visit more comfortable and enjoyable.
Phoenix native Dr. K. Michael Hood has been beautifying the smiles of his hometown for nearly 30 years. Always at the forefront of advancements in his field, he is certified and licensed to perform laser treatments for gum disease, as well as cosmetic procedures such as enamel shaping, teeth whitening, smile makeovers, and white fillings. But Dr. Hood isn't just a provider of many of these treatments—he's also a satisfied patient. In addition to straightening his own teeth with the Invisalign system—of which he's a premier provider—he also bonded his wife's teeth in 1986, using porcelain veneers that, like their marriage and the Rodney Dangerfield film Back to School, have withstood the test of time.
Dr. Mark Espinoza specializes in pain free smile makeovers, which aim to straighten smiles with the aid of Invisalign and ClearCorrect invisible braces. Dr. Espinoza wants to keep patients as comfortable as possible, which is why he welcomes all new patients to Central Dental Care with a personal phone call. Once in the office, clients can put on a provided headset or rest on a pillow as the dentist retouches smiles with cosmetic or preventive services.
Desert Dentistry's specialists tend to teeth at five locations using advanced technologies such as intraoral cameras, cavity-detecting UV lights, and a computer-controlled wand that delivers precise measurements of anesthesia. While performing treatments such as dental checkups, they use distilled water attached to a water-line purification system, and during these checkups, they screen for oral cancer using a ViziLite fluorescent light to spot any abnormalities.
To relax nervous patients, they offer sedation dentistry or a CD of James Earl Jones reading bedtime stories. As an added bonus, they encourage patients to complete their necessary dental care and keep up with preventative treatments by offering a Whitening for Life program that gives out complimentary tubes of whitening gel.
