Dr. Prakash K. Sojitra believes in keeping his patients informed as much as he believes in good dental hygiene. To make this happen, he first examines for decay in a patient's enamel and bone with thorough exams and x-rays, which also lay out panoramic diagrams of teeth so he can determine bite relationships. The doctor then relates his findings to patients in simple terms so they can make informed decisions about treatment plans. Educated patients, the doctor finds, feel empowered about their dental health and are thus more likely to maintain their dental upkeep instead of waiting for their teeth to develop deeper, more costly problems. In addition, Dr. Praskash sees patients for dental emergencies such as broken teeth, bitten tongues, and infectious smiles; he also spends a good amount of time devising lifetime treatment plans to help prevent such emergencies.

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. An initial 30-minute exam, including x-rays, photos, and impressions of your mouth terrain, paves the way for a flurry of calibrated teeth sheaths that are designed to slowly shift walnut crackers into perfect alignment. The total cost of an Invisalign treatment varies for each customer (it can run anywhere from $2,000 to $8,000); this Groupon gets you $2,500 toward that final cost. View some Invisalign FAQs here.
Though he has more than 25 years of dentistry experience in the city of Modesto, Dr. Wayne Yee isn't content to let these years stand alone when it comes to his expertise.

MAGD stands for Master of the Academy of General Dentistry, a title whose requirements entail at least 1,200 hours of continuing education, the mastery of a sprawling, 16-discipline and 500-question exam, and the annual achievement of four times the amount of continuing education required for a state license.
