Dr. Namita T. Chaudhary graduated magna cum laude from the Baltimore College of Dental Surgery, and her specialized education and experience with patrons of all ages shine through during general, cosmetic, and restorative treatments. After sessions, she calls her patients to check up on them and provides her personal cell-phone number so they can ask questions and check if her refrigerator is running. The staff keeps up with the practice's technology by attending courses and seminars, which prepare them to use a laser cavity-detection tool and a ViziLite oral-cancer screen. Sandwiched comfortably between the treatment chair and a toasty blanket, guests open wide while watching movies, or listening to music and taking in the window's sweeping view.
Dr. Michael Timothy Gocke and his team of professionals work to firm up frontispieces showing the signs of age using FDA-approved Botox treatments. During the appointment, a steady-handed doctor injects a tiny needle filled with skin-smoothening serum into the face's crinkly acreage, slowing down hyperactive facial muscles by inhibiting nerve impulses and spasmodic expressions of befuddlement. The botulinum-laced tonic can fade forehead worry lines, crow's-feet, and smile ravines from the visage for up to four months, although results generally take 3–10 days after treatment to become visible. To ease any discomfort, sensitive face owners can opt for an application of anesthetic cream or an ice pack during the procedure. The noninvasive treatment results in little to no downtime, allowing patients to return to their normal activities of working, raising a family, or imitating Mister Ed soon after treatment.
Invisalign straightens crooked chompers with a combination of highly advanced, 3-D computer graphics and the spells of old-fashioned orthodontia. The Invisalign process eschews cumbersome braces for clear, removable aligners that are virtually invisible to the unclothed eye. During an initial 30-minute exam, Dr. John F. Conaghan and his experienced crew take x-rays, photos, and impressions of patients’ mouth terrain, paving the way for a flurry of calibrated teeth sheaths that are designed to slowly shift walnut crackers into perfect alignment.

When searching for a new dentist, patients prize a light touch almost as much as they do extensive training or whiz-bang technology. Fortunately, Tarek Mogharbel, DDS—who worked in District of Columbia General Hospital’s oral-surgery department and is a certified Invisalign and Lumineers practitioner—and his partner, Sun Park, DDS, both describe themselves as gentle people. This character trait translates to each of their cosmetic and family dentistry services. The doctors take special care no matter the procedure, whether it’s an exam for an anxious youngster, a teeth-whitening treatment for an adult, or a new set of porcelain veneers for a ventriloquist’s dummy locked in an eternal, unfeeling grin.
Invisalign straightens crooked chompers through a combination of highly advanced, 3-D computer graphics and the spells of good old-fashioned orthodontia. Three different practices feature orthodontists specially trained and certified in the Invisalign process, which eschews cumbersome braces for clear, removable aligners that are virtually invisible to the unclothed eye. An initial exam, including x-rays, photos, and impressions of your mouth terrain ($325), will pave the way for a flurry of calibrated teeth sheaths that are designed to slowly shift your walnut crackers into perfect alignment. The total cost of an Invisalign treatment varies with each customer (it can run anywhere from $4,000 to $8,000); this Groupon gets you $1,000 to put toward that final cost.
