Dr. John Monsman helms Colonial Heights Dental, blending his allegiance to traditional dental care with ultra-modern treatment modalities. He draws upon 22 years of experience and extensive training to perform procedures ranging from fluoride treatments and sealants to crowns, root canals, and oral surgery. He also improves oral appearances with cosmetic treatments including Zoom! teeth whitening and Invisalign, which straightens smiles without braces or a really boring birthday wish. Not content to simply rest on his reputation, Dr. Monsman also embraces education, sponsoring continued training for himself and his staff and enlightening patients with tips for at-home care.
The innovative Invisalign treatment corrects alignment with a system of clear, removable acrylic aligners. Using 3-D digital imaging and a certified Invisalign lab, the skilled artisans of dentition make custom aligners for each patient’s mouth. The technique straightens teeth in about 6–18 months for a faster turnaround time than traditional braces or elaborate invisibility cloaks. Patients can remove the devices for meals, brushing, or special events like tooth prom, though most people will never see the translucent devices. Supremia recommends the treatment for adults and older teens who have already had braces, or even for purely cosmetic purposes.
Dr. Kenisha Grant-Hyman and Dr. Brandy Joyner, Horizon Family Dentistry's two dentists, believe in dental care that's accessible––in terms of both money and time. In this spirit, they each worked in disadvantaged communities for three years before opening their practice. And in the same spirit, their new office is outfitted with a CEREC machine, which can craft full crowns, veneers, and inlays in under an hour, thus streamlining a process that typically takes multiple appointments. The duo also tends teeth with a range of general-dentistry services; their thorough exams are aided by intra-oral cameras, and they provide root canal services when necessary.
Dr. Abbott and the staff at Midlothian Dental Arts revamp smiles with maintenance and cosmetic services that harness newer technology such as digital x-rays, 3-D imaging, and rocket-powered dental chairs. Each exam unfolds inside the comforting confines of the facility's rooms, which boast natural lighting. Neck pillows, flat-screen TVs, and headphones relax patients, as any necessary sedations put excess anxieties to sleep, and treatments conclude with rejuvenating, spa-scented washcloths.
The dental professionals at United Smiles combine their expertise to cover the full range of dental services, from restorative and crown work to endodontics and cosmetic dentistry. The practice spans across four offices, though each office operates under the same philosophy of educating patients with thorough explanations of treatments and setting them at ease in a comfortable environment. This patient-centric credo extends to scheduling appointments on Saturday, as well as the practice's policy of always accepting emergency visits resulting from sudden tooth pain or strong urges to nap in a dental chair.
Most people hate going to the dentist. That's why Dr. Lindsey Willams and her staff at Dental Oasis of Clayton work hard to make every patient feel comfortable. It starts with the look and feel of the office, which features soothing curved lines and natural surfaces like hardwood floors and earth-toned furniture. The friendly staff also makes sure to call each and every patient by name instead of barcode number, and they offer beverages to sip on while waiting in the reception area. To further patient comfort, the dentist and hygienists work with ultramodern equipment that eases the pain of some treatments and boosts sterilization. Dental Oasis offers everything from general services such as fillings and cleanings to restorative procedures such as root canals and crowns.
