At City Creek Dental, Dr. Landon Bye soothes the skittish beast in his new patients with a luxurious and relaxing environment. The sleek office is furnished with modern décor, quiet, babbling fountains, and state-of-the-art technology. A massaging dental chair awaits patients, offering gentle vibrations to unwind the body and entertain the human laugh-sack while the doctor performs an exam and tooth cleaning. Small-screen aficionados will feel happy as an unfished clam upon seeing the cable television in the exam room display a favorite show or sporting event. After the x-rays, exam, and cleaning, Dr. Bye will deliver a clean bill of health or discuss future treatment; either way, visitors will leave with their teeth as clean as a bar of soap in a Hazmat suit.
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.
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.
The dental professionals at Genesis Dental keep mouths gleaming radiantly with oral procedures performed in a friendly, professional setting. In the one-hour Boost teeth-whitening treatment, patients lay back while a technician applies a bleaching gel to discolored chompers, breaking up stains and leaving teeth bright enough to rival the grins of veteran game-show hosts. The special chemical formula also contains tooth-strengthening potassium nitrate and fluoride, helping to keep mouths fit for leaving love bites on particularly alluring marble statues.
Bountiful Dentistry aims to keep smiles in tiptop shape. Drs. Aaron Stobbe and Hans Smith helm the practice and treat patients in semiprivate dental stations that face oversized windows for a bright and cheery environment. The duo's services include whitening teeth, crafting porcelain veneers, and straightening smiles using Invisalign clear retainers.
Alpenglow Dental's team of five practitioners—all Utah natives—track down the latest research and employ modern technology to maintain oral health at four local practices. Their spectrum of services encompasses many mouth-based needs, whether patients seek a regular cleaning or need veneers to conceal misaligned teeth. ClearCorrect invisible braces use removable aligners instead of metal wires for straighter smiles and more intimidating growls. The dentists are also able to lift stains from age, coffee consumption, and smoking with whitening treatments.
