Powell Village Dental's dentists and hygienists get to know their patients' dental history and dental hopes for the future so they can customize treatments. An initial oral exam checks canines and their soft gummy holders for decay, problems with soft tissue, and chunks of ham, while x-rays reveal hidden cavities and tooth alignment issues. The cleaning scours teeth of built-up stains, tartar, and plaque, and buffs them to a pearly shine before the concentrated fluoride treatment combats decay and leaves toothy palaces fortified with dental turrets.
There are 32 teeth in the mouth of an average adult, and not one of them goes unaccounted for at Olentangy Family Dentistry. But even before he takes the time to gently clean every last one of each patient's teeth, Dr. Mohsen Faghihi sets aside a few minutes to get to know the patient. This brief consultation about brushing and eating habits makes all the difference in helping him devise an effective treatment plan. Aside from routine exams and cleanings, Dr. Faghihi specializes in restorative fillings, whitening treatments, and oral surgery.
Dr. Rupinder Kaur fixes diseased, chipped, and stained teeth with her steady hands and dental skills. She performs root canals and extracts beyond-repair chompers, replacing them with realistic-looking implants. Invisalign straightens crooked teeth, and whitening or glow-in-the-dark treatments brighten smiles. Dr. Kaur keeps her office open evenings and on Saturdays to cater to busy clients.
Inside Dublin Ohio Dental Group’s cozy office, replete with wood paneling, light-green walls, and a warmly lit waiting area, Dr. David A. Bennett and his staff treat all manner of teeth with a variety of cosmetic and general services. Dr. Bennett employs his more than 14 years of mouth-mending experience to fill gaps in smiles with crowns, bridges, veneers, and dentures, and to improve upon grins with whitening treatments and orthodontia. He and his team work to assuage any patient anxiety by providing complimentary nitrous oxide and staging full-scale Broadway productions upon request, and they cater to tinier teeth with pediatric dentistry. The practice takes pride in giving back to the local community, as is evident in its Dentistry From the Heart program—previous efforts have included hosting a free day of dentistry for all ages and filling cavities for a patient without dental insurance.
After earning his doctorate in dental surgery from Ohio State, local boy Dr. Buck remained in his home state to practice cosmetic, restorative, and general dentistry. He and his team build long-term relationships with their patients by remaining clear and honest about all procedures, whether it's a teeth whitening or full-mouth rehabilitation when disease, injury, or decay has becoming seemingly overwhelming. They understand trust is just as important as comfort, which is why they also offer oral sedation and nitrous oxide to ease patient anxieties about procedures such as root canals, dental implants, or the extraction of wisdom teeth not smart enough to stay out of trouble.
At Schneider Family Dental, Dr. Matt Schneider makes use of dental technology that wasn’t available when the practice first opened its doors in 1968. In fact, much of it wasn’t available a few years ago. 3-D x-rays give dentists a full view of teeth, allowing them to observe virtually every spot of decay and any frisbees stuck on the roof of the mouth. The office's Cerec machine crafts porcelain crowns custom fitted to patients in one visit, and tooth-colored composite resins keep fillings a secret.
But the team isn’t bogged down with technology so much that they neglect the comfort of their patients. IV sedation relaxes nervous or needle-wary patients while allowing them to continue giving feedback during treatments.
