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.

Dr. Jorge E. Quintero—who holds licenses from the dental boards of both Florida and California—has been safeguarding teeth using preventive maintenance and advanced detection technology since 1984. He oversees a team of trained hygienists who keep mouths healthy and fully operational with oral surgery, implants, and teeth cleanings. When they're not focusing on preventive dentistry, they pretty up smiles with a variety of cosmetic services, including porcelain veneers, teeth whitening, and lip augmentation. These dental experts fully believe that educating patients is an important step towards oral health. As such, Dr. Quintero encourages his clientele in both Spanish and English to practice healthy habits, such as flossing, brushing twice daily, and limiting the number of candied sugar cubes they eat each night. :m]]
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.
Helmed by board-certified orthodontic specialist Dr. Battle, Premier Orthodontics guides rebellious mouth knives back into regimental alignment using the most up-to-date tooth technology. The Invisalign process straightens crooked chompers with a combination of highly advanced, 3-D computer graphics, and clear, removable aligners that are virtually invisible to the unclothed eye. During an initial 60-minute exam, the mouth magicians will determine the best course of treatment for each patient, using x-rays, and photos of the mouth terrain, paving the way for a flurry of calibrated teeth sheaths that are designed to slowly shift walnut crackers into perfect alignment. Depending on the client’s teeth, as few as 12 or as many as 48 separate Invisalign aligners will need to be worn during a period of 6–15 months before the straightening effect finally self-actuates in a sudden burst of pink smoke and slobber. Aligners are only removed when eating, brushing, flossing, or modeling a finely clenched jaw.
Once clients are comfortably ensconced in the dentist's chair, the oral exam begins. The dentist and his/her fellow toothsperts will check each individual incisor, cuspid, bicuspid, and molar for chips, cracks, staining, and loitering Minnesota Twins, ensuring that enamel bones are sound for biting, and gums and soft tissues will be inspected for any signs of periodontal disease. The x-ray battery exposes the roots and inner sanctums of oral stalagmites to reveal any soft spots, problem areas, or cavities. When your mouth checks out as mammalian and your teeth are cleared for take-off, the professional teeth cleaning begins. An expert cleaning removes all the buildup and surface staining that regular brushing and flossing can't—hardened tartar, hard-to-reach plaque, and bacterial graffiti along the gum line.
The procedure is simple. Hydrogen Peroxide gel is applied to the teeth. A cold, blue light is placed directly in front of your exposed teeth and runs for 15-20 minutes. Many customers see the positive results they desire after 1 to 2 treatments, and some opt for 3, for maximum whitening.
