A beautiful smile isn't just a showpiece; it's a key to happiness and success, according to Dr. George Hitzel. Bolstered by a staff of caring and attentive hygienists, assistants, and in-house lab techs, the Georgetown-trained Dr. Hitzel and fellow dentists treat tooth troubles and teach patients how to prevent them with oral-hygiene pointers.
During prophylactic cleanings, powerful polishing brushes remove plaque from teeth, and x-rays locate cavities hidden between the teeth or beneath the gum line. In addition to warding off tooth decay and gum disease, the dentists enhance choppers' aesthetic appeal with cosmetic services such as Zoom! Whitening, Invisalign invisible braces, and applications of prosthetic narwhal tusks.
Today's Dental staff shares one goal; to provide excellent care and high quality dentistry that will improve your health, comfort and appearance. Our cosmetic dentist, Dr. Greg Engelman has been creating beautiful smiles for over 20 years.
Dr. Kristine Marshall, a graduate of Northwestern University's dental school, followed in her grandfather's footstep by earning her dental degree in 1993. Since then, she's practiced both general and cosmetic dentistry and enhanced her expertise at the Las Vegas Institute for Advanced Dental Studies. Armed with the latest dental technology, from digital x-rays to laser-assisted treatments, Dr. Marshall examines teeth, whitens smiles, and performs full-mouth reconstruction. Her friendly and compassionate approach quickly puts patients at ease, while her Jedi mind tricks lure mouths into opening up and saying "Ahh."
Even dentists get toothaches. Director of The Dental Emergency Room Dr. William Jamolych knows how torturous tooth pain can be, having suffered unexpected dental emergencies himself. He and his staff keep the clinic open 365 days a year, even on important holidays such as Christmas and Super Bowl Sunday. Besides treating the sudden ache or broken tooth, he and his staff also perform routine exams, cleanings, and cosmetic procedures.
Dr. Harold Kirksey doesn't isolate his practice to the mouth. He views dentistry as a holistic profession, one that addresses oral ailments for the benefit of the entire person. Therefore, his services strive to correct root problems and restore confidence, rather than simply cancel out symptoms. His porcelain veneers, crowns, and bonding treatments act as evidence of his extensive training in cosmetic and restorative dentistry. He also straightens teeth with Invisalign braces—less conspicuous than metal braces, they're unlikely to be detected by the malevolent Brace Fairy. Before he begins any treatment, however, Dr. Kirksey discusses patients' goals during a smile design consultation, which outlines a customized plan for obtaining a more carefree grin.
