Evenings, weekends, or same day—the team at Kris Dental goes out of its way to accommodate patients with flexible scheduling, as well as a vast menu of services. The office's fully licensed dentist specializes in cosmetic and general dentistry, with treatments that range from cleanings and dental implants to extractions, oral surgery, and whitening.
Recognizing that each mouth is as unique as an encrypted snowflake, the oral-health experts at Rivercrest Family Dental and Sonrisa Dental design their treatment plans accordingly. A duo of skilled dentists leads the way: Dr. Justin Barber—who served as a dentist in the US Air Force and helms Sonrisa as well as seeing patients at Rivercrest Family Dental—and Dr. William T. Lee Jr., who lavishes chompers with an expertise that comes from four decades of experience. The pair of dental experts treats gnashers of all ages and stripes, catering to mouths with everything from basic exams and cleanings to root canals. They also practice cosmetic dentistry, handling veneers and offering whitening treatments for patients seeking smiles bright enough to forgo helmet lights when spelunking.
The life of David Lewis overlaps a great deal with that of his father, Robert. After graduating from dental school, both men joined the US Army Dental Corps, where they served soldiers with their knowledge of oral care. Robert established his practice in 1963 and then watched as his son followed his career path and eventually joined him in San Antonio. Today, they work together, bringing 70 years of combined experience to their cosmetic and dental treatments.
Though their pasts indicate a regard for tradition, both David and Robert continually update their education and techniques. The dental duo converts metal fillings into tooth-colored ones, brightens smiles with porcelain veneers, and often advocates for clear Invisalign aligners instead of wire braces or tiny etiquette coaches that tell teeth to stand up straight. Their proficiency in endodontic procedures such as root canals can save patients the trouble of finding a specialist, and they reward those who consistently schedule six-month checkups with free whitening kits.
Specializing in family-friendly services, the dental duo of Dr. Justin J. Gonzales and Dr. F. Bradley Dutton and a tenacious staff combat incursions of plaque, tartar, and tooth decay from their pearly Pentagon at San Pedro Dental Associates. The routine procedure begins with a thorough visual inspection of each patient's dentition (an $82 value), followed by a set of x-rays to find underlying issues and call out lies about lead-chewing habits (a $107 value). Each tooth is then freed from clingy plaque deposits with a full cleaning, polishing, and fluoride soak (a $119 combined value). Patients are given a brush-on whitening pen that makes undoing unwanted discoloration at home as simple as writing an unofficial sequel to Of Mice and Men on a set of dentures (a $49 value).
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.
