Going to a dental office where you're treated like a mere number can be a dispiriting experience. City Dental Centers founders Dr. Mike and Dr. Sam set out to foster the opposite atmosphere at his clinics, bringing a caring, personal touch to underserved neighborhoods. At all three of City Dental Centers' locations, the cheerful staffers help keep mouths healthy and comely, offering a full slate of services that range from basic cleanings to tooth-replacing implants. The friendly environs also ease appointments for kids, who might be scared of having a dentist clean their teeth or find their uvula.
Flashing a winning smile is a sure-fire way to make a good impression, which explains why so many people look to teeth-whitening treatments for an added boost of confidence. Great Smile Store fills this need with a selection of home whitening kits and teeth-brightening pens. In addition, it carries sonic toothbrushes that eliminate plaque by vibrating at a rate of 28,000–31,000 strokes per minute, the same speed at which Leonardo da Vinci could have painted the Mona Lisa if he had wanted to.
Dr. Etemad doesn’t have to explain his passion for dentistry; it’s all in his resumé. In addition to carrying licenses in three states—California, Florida, and Arizona—he has pursued specialty dental training in oral sedation, Cerec crowns, and impacted-wisdom-tooth extractions. He extends his knowledge of advanced techniques not only in his offices, but also to underprivileged patients in Jamaica during mission trips.
