Dr. Prakash K. Sojitra believes in keeping his patients informed as much as he believes in good dental hygiene. To make this happen, he first examines for decay in a patient's enamel and bone with thorough exams and x-rays, which also lay out panoramic diagrams of teeth so he can determine bite relationships. The doctor then relates his findings to patients in simple terms so they can make informed decisions about treatment plans. Educated patients, the doctor finds, feel empowered about their dental health and are thus more likely to maintain their dental upkeep instead of waiting for their teeth to develop deeper, more costly problems. In addition, Dr. Praskash sees patients for dental emergencies such as broken teeth, bitten tongues, and infectious smiles; he also spends a good amount of time devising lifetime treatment plans to help prevent such emergencies.

Dr. Maulik Shah isn’t just a dentist, but an artist. Since 2002, he has created beautiful smiles for his patients with veneers, whitening treatments, and Invisalign clear braces. But his office oversees more than the visible twinkles that appear at the corners of his patients’ grins. He also ensures lifelong dental functionality with general and restorative dental treatments. Sealants keep hidden food from wreaking havoc inside teeth’s nethermost nooks, and Six Month Smiles braces safely shift teeth to healthier positions with controlled, efficient pressure while their tooth-colored exteriors keep them hidden. He also gives damaged teeth second chances with restoration services such as root canals, tooth-colored fillings, and crowns. Understanding the value of continuing education, Dr. Shah stays on top of emerging dental technologies and trends to always bring his patients the best current treatment options available.
