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.
At Aqua Dental, an expert, multidisciplinary staff joins forces with state-of-the-art equipment and technology to keep chompers looking and feeling top-notch. The Aqua Dental team consistently seeks to expand its repertoire of services, which already include cosmetic dentistry, whitening treatments, and hygienic services. They also provide orthodontics to help straighten misaligned teeth and correct jaw problems.
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.
Dental work is often just as conspicuous as the flaws it's attempting to fix. That's why Dr. Mark Nguyen continues Orange Dental Arts' 30-year tradition of conservative dentistry. Rather than relying on silver metal amalgams to keep cavities in check, he fills enamel holes with white composite resin, which, like a snowman's skull tattoo, is difficult to see. Similarly, his Invisalign braces ease teeth into place without wires or brackets. Dedicated to utilizing the most conservative dental technology available, Dr. Nguyen attends continuing-education courses.
Though he knows how to artfully arrange sets of porcelain, Dr. Mark Nguyen is anything but an interior decorator. Rather, he's a dentist who specializes in cosmetic treatments, utilizing tools such as Invisalign braces, porcelain veneers, and implants to enhance a smile's beauty. Though he often administers complex mouth makeovers, he strives to minimize all patient discomfort. His Zoom! whitening treatments, for example, are only one hour long, much shorter than the time it takes to paint them with Wite-Out.
Dr. Nguyen also conducts medical procedures for the long-term health of teeth and gums. He takes intra-oral photos that allow clients to glimpse inside their own mouths, as well as digital x-rays that identify hard-to-see problems. His oral cancer screenings, fluoride treatments, fillings, and crowns further help to combat tooth decay and other mouth-related ailments.
