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.
Medical aesthetician Monica Pacheco and Drs. Stan Zebrowski and Irene Blaess aim to make a trip to the dentist's office something to anticipate with a smile during general-dentistry and cosmetic-dentistry appointments or aesthetic spa services. A complimentary sugar scrub and paraffin hand treatment helps soothe every patient and client to leave hands soft enough to participate in unarmed pillow fights. Teeth-whitening treatments or porcelain veneers rehabilitate tarnished grins, and a variety of facials and chemical peels helps countenances return to healthy, youthful states. Clients enjoy the fragrant candles and soothing music as a gently gurgling aquarium displays fish who lazily swim toward the light of newly radiant enamel.
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).
Rehoboth Health Network and Family Dentistry, PLLC caters to families' needs by providing a range of dental services for adults and kids as young as 6 months. Ensuring patients' comfort is a priority for the practice's dental specialists, so throughout each appointment, they provide compassionate care while tending to teeth. During routine exams, they use audio-visual equipment to display x-rays and photographic images, allowing patients to see any troublesome areas while the staff offers possible solutions. Thorough examinations and cleanings are essential to preventative care, although the team is equally capable of addressing existing complications. Crowns and bridges can replace signs of damaged teeth, and fillings and root canals can eliminate the sources of decay before they spread further. The dentists even perform extractions when necessary, or when patients want more mouth-holes to set their drink straws.
Prior to working in private practice, periodontist Dr. Kent Hamilton practiced dentistry in the U.S. Air Force. He also taught the art of dentistry at the university level, helping countless proteges learn how to make teeth feel comfortable in the dentist's office. Today his patients come to him with a range of dental needs, needing him to repairs smiles with simple procedures or with implants, grafting techniques, or tissue regeneration.
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.
