Helmed by Rashmi Swamy, DMD, the dentists and hygienists at Dr. Swamy and Associates help prevent oral maladies and brighten smiles by combining years of experience with technologies such as single-tooth anesthesia and intraoral cameras. Low-radiation x-rays use digital radiography to survey the entire dental lineup for cavities and signs of thin enamel. Ezlase units hum in treatment rooms, clearing teeth of stains, and hygienists gently scour pearlies to remove plaque, tartar, and confidential documents about bubblegum.
By the age of 10, Dr. Sarmad Channo already knew that being a doctor, engineer, or pilot would never be as fulfilling as being a dentist. The profession suited him because it harnessed his analytical mind and compassion for patients. Today, he lives out his childhood dream by practicing dentistry at Art Dentistry Center, performing routine exams, treating disease, and cursing his sugary foes.
The Wow Smile Express teeth-whitening system is a safe and painless way to brighten your smile and feign a darker haircut. Unlike at-home whitening products that only address surface discoloration, Wow Smile's cosmetic treatment tackles both surface stains and deep-seated tooth regrets, targeting the dingy evidence of coffee, tea, cola, red wine, and tobacco, a cocktail known in some circles as "the filibuster." During your 20-minute treatment, a Wow Smile–trained professional will apply a special gel that will catapult water and radical hydroxyl ions into the tubules of your teeth, breaking apart stains to reveal a smile two to six shades brighter.
Dr. Rachel Woll treats teeth in a renovated home complete with a brick fireplace and leather-upholstered chairs. Continuing-education courses keep Dr. Woll and her staff up to date on noninvasive cosmetic-dentistry techniques and celebrity gossip. Established patients who make their cleaning appointment within 30 days of their due date receive one free syringe of whitening gel to help ensure pearly whites stay bright.
While others grow up wanting to be astronauts and firefighters, Dr. Winter dreamed of the dental arts. After he graduated summa cum laude from Eastern Michigan University, Winter encountered a strong gust of wind that filled his graduation gown and carried him just a few miles down the road to the prestigious University of Michigan dental school, where he continued his studies.
Dental technology has advanced quite a bit in the more than 25 years since Dr. Winter began practicing, but he and his staff at Progressive Dental Professionals pride themselves on staying abreast of the changes. Among the many services and amenities they offer today are realistic Lumineers, single-visit teeth-whitening treatments, and flat-screen TVs.
Dr. E. Maurice Henderson leads the crew of dental hygienists and assistants that make up Dedicated Dental Services & Onyx Dental Associates. Dr. Henderson splits his time between two locations, where he removes plaque and tartar from teeth and lint from zipper pockets in the inner cheek. The doctor performs not only routine cleanings and exams, but also restorations, teeth whitening, and root canals.
