A graduate of the University of Michigan School of Dentistry, Dr. Justin A. Leath is the type of guy who can make any activity fun, dentist visits included. At his all-digital practice in Rochester Hills, he performs everything from basic cleanings to emergency extractions while clients gaze at flat-screen TVs mounted in every treatment room. Cosmetic enhancements include porcelain veneers and professional teeth whitening. For clients who just can't relax, the office also offers two modes of sedation: nitrous oxide (laughing gas) and algebra textbooks on tape. To accommodate clients' busy schedules, Leath Dental books early-morning, after-work, Saturday, and Sunday appointments. For those who arrive at the office ahead of time, a modern reception area with black leather chairs, cold bottled water, and a single-cup coffee brewer make the waiting period feel more like an intentional stint of rest and relaxation.
Dr. Joseph Matievich and his staff routinely seek out education in the field's newest technologies, procedures, and techniques, bringing that knowledge back to Family Smiles Dental Care and using it to provide efficient, comprehensive care for patients. Some examples of the practice's modern equipment include digital x-ray machines, intraoral cameras, and laser systems specifically designed to treat the gums. This diagnostic technology is especially useful during basic examinations, which thoroughly check for any signs of trouble before they become serious problems. In the event of existing decay or damage, Dr. Matievich and his team can still help. Implants, porcelain veneers, and crowns replace chips or gaps, creating full and healthy-looking smiles.
PGS Dentistry combines skill along with a dedication to ethics and a desire to nurture, to treat the entire family’s dental needs. The staff at the Romeo location includes two dentists and two hygienists, who work together to provide preventative care, perform surgery, and beautify smiles with cosmetic procedures such as Zoom! whitening. The practice is affiliated with the Michican Dental Association and the American Dental Association, among other organizations.
Unlike the sun, who can't be bothered to give up his beauty sleep, Birmingham Tan keeps bronzing bodies till 9 p.m. on weekdays and offers convenient weekend hours to suit busy schedules. Staffed by a team of knowledgeable tanning experts, the salon maintains a fleet of Puretan and Suncapsule tanning equipment that baste pale skin with five varying levels of hue-shifting rays. Those hoping to avoid the synthetic beams can opt for a UV-free Mystic Tan session, which includes a brief instruction video that shows first timers how to operate the booth or use it as an emergency floatation device.
To Dr. Daniel Mashni and his team, patients' comfort is just as important as their oral health. That's why they stock the office with the latest ease-enhancing advancements in dental technology—including digital x-ray scanners and a sterilization system that provides distilled, crystal-clear water for every appointment—and by thoroughly explaining all of the available options to their clients. The specialists might recommend general, cosmetic, or restorative dental care, although every service shares the common goal of leaving teeth healthy and sparkling. Veneers, implants, and crowns can all help seal gaps or conceal signs of damage, and Invisalign treatments even out teeth without the use of metal braces. The practice also offers in-office as well as at-home whitening procedures, which leave smiles as stain-free as the apron of the inventor of invisible ink.
Dr. Timothy Kosinski of SmileCreator has placed over 7,000 dental implants throughout his career. When he isn't crafting dentures, treating gums, or replacing fangs with tusks, he works as an adjunct assistant professor at a university. Because of his achievements in his field, he won the Lifelong Learning and Service Recognition award from the Academy of General Dentistry in 2009. In addition to contributing to two textbooks, he has published more than 80 articles on implant dentistry and has written an unpublished collection of dental-themed haikus. Although Dr. Kosinski offers more routine preventive care, he mostly performs full-mouth reconstruction and cosmetic dentistry, and so, in order to help patients relax during these services, he can use both intravenous and oral sedation. Treatment rooms help patients unwind without sedation with TVs, individual headphones, DVDs, and computer equipment.
