Born and raised in Holladay, Dr. Andrew Ericksen knows his neighbors better than most people, especially since he has unparalleled access to the tiny family trees etched in each person’s teeth. To ensure the most effective treatment, he uses the latest technology, such as rotary endodontics, which employs electrical handpieces to quickly and gently perform root canals. He x-rays mouths with digital equipment, reducing radiation exposure, and wields intraoral cameras to capture thorough views of mouths. To ease anxiety, he offers sedation, enabling even the most apprehensive patient to relax.
iSmile Dentistry proudly proclaims that their doctors are patient specialists and oral-cancer-screening gurus. The crew regularly attends lectures and conventions to remain on the cutting edge of new technology and techniques, including oral-surgery procedures, laser treatments for gum disease, and clear brace aligners. The comprehensive nature of the practice allows patients to receive virtually any service with an on-staff practitioner, eliminating the need to go door to door to find a nearby orthodontist.
Dr. David Duke loves technology. At Dental Designs, he uses an intraoral camera—a pen-size device that projects the teeth and the crevices between them onto a screen for easy examination—among other gadgets to help him treat his patients. Dr. Duke’s services include preventive care and reconstructive dentistry, though he vests most of his interest in cosmetic enhancements, such as teeth whitening, veneers, and Invisalign, clear orthodontics that secretly straighten smiles.

Smith Family Dental's Drs. Steven and Morgan Smith have designed their office to keep patients as comfortable as possible?both during and after appointments. Once in the chair, patients can don pairs of Bose surround-sound headphones and watch movies or shows playing on the ceiling-mounted TVs. Nitrous oxide soothes patients before treatments, especially when it's coupled with one of the office's blankets, pillows. After root canals or fillings, the team can use OraVerse reverse anesthetic, which helps restore feeling to the lips and gums.
