The multi-lingual staff at Dr. Dental, a family-run practice, strives to shatter orthodontic stereotypes by tidying up tusks in an unintimidating office sporting the ambience of a friendly neighborhood establishment. Return choppers to a glowing state with a new-patient cleaning, a procedure that polishes pearly whites and analyzes teeth’s deep-seated fear of falling out and being exiled by a fairy. After a deep cleaning, the non-judgmental dentist administers bitewing x-rays to inspect for toothy ailments and lays out a long-term treatment plan for molar maintenance. Many locations offer after-hours and weekend appointment times for patients who are busy with work, family, or animal husbandry.

At ZM Dental, she does everything from routine dental care to cosmetic procedures, including whitening and clear Invisalign orthodontics.

Goldman Family Dental's office has been helping patients for more than 30 years with everything from esthetic dentistry to one-visit Cerec porcelain restorations. In addition, dentist Dr. Bruce Goldman recently welcomed Dr. Zack Goldman, Dr. Bruce's son, in 2011. What Dr. Zack describes as a "family-like atmosphere," is characterized not by the duo's kinship but by their relationship with patients, whose thank-you notes and gifts are cherished by the entire staff. To exist as a truly "warm and patient-centered environment," the dentists nurture friendships with patients, provide their cell-phone numbers for 24/7 emergency assistance, and emphasize esthetic dentistry and comfort.
