The doctors at Alamo Smiles Dentistry understand that pain and dental offices seem forever linked. A large part of this perception, they note, comes from people’s fear of dental drills. Instead of relying on old-fashioned drills, the doctors there confront cavities with air abrasion tools designed to gently remove cavity debris without generating any of the high-pitched noises or heat of metal cutting tools. They back up this devotion to pain-free dentistry with a conservative approach, using thorough exams to track down decay and gum problems before they get a chance to hurt.
Drs. Dan Marcuse and Amruta Patel lead the team at Outreach for Smiles Family Dentistry, where the focus is on warding off tooth decay with patient education and regular checkups. But when treatments are in order, the staff is at the ready to fill in cavities or perform root-canal therapy. They also cater to busy kids through a mobile outreach program—Outreach for Smiles—in which the team travels to schools and community programs to dole out fluoride treatments and dental cleanings.

Invisalign straightens crooked chompers through a combination of highly advanced, 3-D computer graphics and the spells of good old-fashioned orthodontia. Three different practices feature orthodontists specially trained and certified in the Invisalign process, which eschews cumbersome braces for clear, removable aligners that are virtually invisible to the unclothed eye. An initial exam, including x-rays, photos, and impressions of your mouth terrain ($325), will pave the way for a flurry of calibrated teeth sheaths that are designed to slowly shift your walnut crackers into perfect alignment. The total cost of an Invisalign treatment varies with each customer (it can run anywhere from $2,000 to $8,000); this Groupon gets you $1,000 to put toward that final cost.

They also stage alternate party themes, helping youngsters form rock ‘n’ roll bands to sing along to kid-friendly hits, or play chef during hands-on pizza- and sundae-making parties.
