With hundreds of locations across the country, Right Dental Group represents a collection of oral-healthcare professionals who deliver a variety of quality dental services. The collective places an emphasis on relationship building—meaning patients can confess their most egregious toffee-apple trespasses while receiving a teeth scrubbing delivered with precision and understanding. Each of the dentists is prescreened for a consistent record of excellence and the ability to efficiently locate a cavity in a toothstack. A skilled doctor and staff will skillfully probe forgotten mouth corners, eradicating tartar and expunging plaque from bacterial lairs. The included x-rays will help uncover any oral problem areas that cannot be seen with the shamelessly naked eye. After treatment, clients will be privy to tips that explain the proper brushing and flossing techniques to ward off gum disease and tooth loss, ensuring tongue-stoppers remain firmly rooted to the rest of the skeletal system.
At his self-named eye and laser institute, Dr. John Vassallo puts his extensive training as a surgeon into practice. His specialties include eye plastic and muscle surgery, lens implants, laser surgery, and LASIK, a quick laser procedure that restores patients’ once-clear vision. This is not to say that Dr. Vassallo doesn’t provide preventative care, however; he also performs eye exams and glasses and contact-lens fittings.
Dr. Steven Freeman of Elite Smiles Dentistry straightens crooked smiles with sets of Invisalign's convenient removable braces. During the initial exam, patients relax in a private room as Dr. Freeman explains the treatment and answers questions, scrutinizes chompers, and takes digital x-rays to examine graffiti carved into gums by graduating baby teeth. After the doctor takes impressions of soon-to-be-straightened chompers, patients receive a set of thin, clear, customized aligners, to be removed only when eating, brushing, flossing, and temping at the county fair's kissing booth. Every two weeks patients receive a new set of aligners, which gradually shift mismatched grins into symmetrical forms. Treatment time varies, but generally lasts about 12 months.
Avanti Medical Spa's microdermabrasion treatment sloughs away dull, spent skin cells, rejuvenating the epidermis and dampening the effects of aging. During the treatment, an experienced aesthetician uses a small handheld device to polish away the top layer of skin with a steady stream of microcrystals and whisk away epidermal evidence with a steady anti-stream of vacuum. The one-hour procedure can increase the effectiveness of skincare products, stimulate collagen production, even out skin tone and texture, and reduce the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, and mild acne scarring. After the procedure, clients can immediately resume everyday face activities such as smiling and biting Tootsie pops.
Dr. Khan earned a degree in dental surgery from the University of Michigan before opening Dental Arts Family and Cosmetic Dentistry, and she continues to learn to this day via continuing-education courses. These classes help her stay abreast of the latest dental techniques, which she pairs with of-the-moment technology. Her facility’s equipment ranges from intraoral cameras and cosmetic imaging to digital x-rays, which uncover tooth decay and other ailments dentists can’t detect even when staring through a dozen magnifying lenses strapped together with duct tape.
Dr. Khan and her staff use this arsenal of techniques and technology to deliver comprehensive dental care. Exams and x-rays help ward off periodontal disease and root-canal-mandating tooth decay, and cosmetic treatments can straighten smiles and prevent patients from having to adjust their own teeth by always walking around with their heads slightly tilted.
