Dr. Christian Hoybjerg loves change. As an orthodontist, he gets to see smiles change and self-esteem levels soar as his corrective treatments shift teeth into straight formation. Working alongside Dr. Nathan Adams, they work together as dentist and orthodontist to help their patients achieve flawless smiles. Both doctors were educated at Loma Linda University Dental School, and keep right on learning with continuing-education courses and trainings in the latest procedures. Some common conditions he ameliorates include crowded teeth, underbites, and overbites.
At Star Dental, dentists treat mouths in preventative, cosmetic, and restorative treatments. They specialize in a wide range of treatments, from standard cleanings and veneer applications to implants and lessons that teach you how to smile your way to the front of the DMV line. For eligible procedures, the dentists offer conscious sedation to help alleviate any pain and promote relaxation.
The Institute of Esthetic Dentistry is a multispecialty practice, which means that unlike most general-dentistry practices, it houses all of its specialists under one roof, so patients can avoid the inconvenience of going to multiple places for various treatments. Its specialists include Dr. Gregg Welsh, an oral and maxillofacial surgeon certified in using general anesthesia, Dr. Dean Ahmad, a board-certified periodontist, and Dr. Donna Galante, a board-certified orthodontist who is ranked by the company that owns the rights to Invisalign as an Elite Preferred Provider—someone who is in the top 1% of Invisalign providers.
The aptly named institute also has an on-site education center that hosts professional seminars, study-group sessions, and live patient demonstrations, so the in-house specialists have ample opportunities to gain more clinical experience and pass notes about which molar is the cutest. The aesthetics part of the practice's name comes from the cosmetic and aesthetic dentistry services performed there, as well as from office's tribal-art decorations and arched ceilings painted to look like clouds.
At Fende Orthodontics, Dr. Stacie D. Fenderson's experience has taught her two important lessons about her patients: they don't want to spend much time in braces, and they don't want them to be seen. To that effect, Dr. Fenderson incorporates a variety of techniques to make each patient's treatment as quick, effective, and invisible as possible. Among her methods, she uses digital x-rays to make instant diagnoses, prefers functional appliances over cumbersome equipment such as headgear, and places brackets accurately to ensure a quick treatment time. To keep braces out of sight, the office depends on Damon-brand brackets or Invisalign clear aligners, both of which help treat smiles without the tell-tale "Under Construction" signs of ordinary braces. During visits, the staff keeps guests comfortable with such comforts as iPads loaded with games, a beverage bar, and free WiFi.
Husband-and-wife team Drs. Luminita and David Markham aim to build relationships with their clients while waging a high-tech ground assault against their plaque and gingivitis. Luminita eases clients into the appointment, giving them a chance to snuggle into the exam chair, nestle under a cozy blanket, and listen to music on personal headphones or watch TV. For more advanced work, the team harnesses the power of technology, lending protection to chipped teeth with fresh ceramic crowns that are made in-office with a Sirona Cerec machine during one visit. Digital x-rays create detailed maps of mouths, all while keeping radiation levels lower than those emitted during a plane ride from New York to Los Angeles or a malt shared with a member of the Fantastic Four. David, who is a board-certified orthodontist, also offers braces to patients.
At Kids Care Dental Group, the dentists make kids comfortable by using a variety of gentle, dental techniques. Toddlers and teenagers of all ages frequent the office, where skilled dentists accomodate their needs in a comforting environment. Screens on the walls and ceiling let little patrons play video games and watch movies to help them relax during their visit.
