The My Premier Dental Group of America dental network links patients to private practices throughout the Pacific Northwest. All the dental professionals within this network independently own their practices and are trained in the latest technologies. They perform everything from preventative checkups to maintain oral health, porcelain veneers to correct smiles, and sleep-apnea-device fittings to help patients sleep better than a baby who just completed his taxes.
If Dr. Noé Flores could give his chiropractic patients one piece of advice, it would be to work toward preventing pains before they start. By incorporating lifestyle coaching and practical postural-advice into his visits, he helps to fulfill his goal of helping patients practice prevention as much as he helps them relieve their pains. New patients experience an in-depth consultation during which Dr. Flores assesses their current issues, the number of bowling balls currently stuffed in their mattresses, and their goals for treatment, before he administers tests or treatment. During adjustments, he uses a low-pressure technique as a way to keep his patients comfortable. In some cases, he uses auricular therapy, a type of ear acupuncture that helps release endorphins and reduces pain. Building on his preventive ideas, the doctor and his team also give their patients exercises they can perform on their own to promote wellness outside his office.
Growing up in Las Vegas, Dr. Raymond Frye found himself drawn to bling at a young age. After training in general dentistry in Oregon, he decided to return to that youthful love of all things sparkly by imbuing his clients' teeth with an otherworldly glimmer. To that end, he created Bling Dental Products and launched a series of cosmetic-dental products such as the in-home Icing teeth-whitening kit, the Diamond ultrasonic toothbrush with UV sanitizer, and Shazzam teeth-whitening strips. Embarking on several projects, such as his pro-bono work in Brazil, Dr. Raymond's creations form an arsenal against dullness that aided in the gifting suite at the 2012 Academy Awards and help non-celebrity clientele flash a smile to gain entry to exclusive clubs and temporarily blind bouncers at movie-award ceremonies.
At City Dental, Dr. Jason Bajuscak and his team promise compassionate dental care and a relaxed visit. To help their patients feel confident about any works that needs to be done, they maintain open communication about each procedure to help allay fears. That's only where the team's work begins. An artillery of cosmetic treatments helps each patient achieve just the smile they want, whether through teeth-whitening systems such as KöR Whitening or teeth-straightening with Invisalign. They also repair teeth with Lumineers, which, unlike porcelain veneers, are reversible and don't require grinding or shaving of teeth. Whenever emergencies arise the team also keep their doors open for same-day emergency appointments, from broken teeth to needing a hug from a professional.
The Bridgeview Dental Associates themselves—Drs. Briles and Parks—have both traveled to Cambodia, volunteering with the Northwest Medical Team to brighten smiles halfway around the world. Here in Portland, the duo helm their own team to conduct services ranging from cosmetic procedures to specialized treatments such as Invisalign braces and professional dental implants to replace existing orange slices.
