Stepping into Tower Dentistry is like stepping into the house of a neighbor?a neighbor who?s really into the Middle Ages. One of the sunny, yellow walls in the reception area gives way to the stone exterior of a castle, where children climb through a kid-size archway to enter their own play space. Overhead, a flat-screen TV entertains parents as they shift focus between the screen and their progeny, sipping coffee or juice on the plush cushions of the sofa. Nearby, a vibrant blue-and-orange flower painting crowns the fireplace, complementing the blue backlighting of the rotunda-like ceiling and the dark-wood cabinets.
If you can bring yourself to leave the cozy comfort of the foyer, you'll find that the rest of the office is just as calming. Satellite TV or music await in treatment rooms, where dentists Adam Raschke, Paul Pierce, Paul Velton, and Frank Duran would love to hear the nicknames you've chosen for each of the fish in their 1,000-gallon aquarium. The caring team maintains its patient-centered philosophy with timesaving, state-of-the-art dental technology. They use a CEREC software system to design and fabricate ceramic restorations in about an hour, and offer mini dental implants that stabilize ill-fitting dentures in a single visit.
Led by a doctor with two decades? worth of experience, the staff at El Cajon Family Dental remains at the forefront of dentistry with advanced tools such as digital x-rays and an intraoral camera. Armed with these technologies, they put patients at ease during an array of general and cosmetic treatments, such as Invisalign trays that straighten crooked teeth or porcelain veneers that cover up rock-chewing habits.
As one of only 50 dentists to have achieved the status of fellow of the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry, Dr. David Hornbrook brings an elite touch to each mouth he beautifies. Because he views each smile as a chance for his clients to show their confidence, he seeks nothing less than spectacular results with each service, whether he's straightening teeth, installing porcelain veneers, or whitening enamel.
To mirror the level of service each client gets in the dentist's chair, the staff stocks their coffee bar with juices and freshly baked chocolate-chip cookies as flickering aromatherapy candles create a light, soothing aroma. After each appointment, they hand patients a lavender-scented facial towel to help them refresh and reward cheeks for waiting patiently as teeth get all the attention.
Dentists Jessamine Sunglao and Nelson Deleon create healthy, glowing smiles with general, restorative, and cosmetic dentistry and thoughtful, personal treatment. The digital x-rays the doctors employ to detect any abnormalities use safer, less harmful rays than their standard counterparts. Painless anesthesia from Milestone can comfort patients who fear the needle. Email- and text-confirmed appointments help busy patients work dental care into their packed schedules. Both doctors tend to general checkups, dental exams, Zoom! teeth whitening, and root-canal therapy. Dr. Deleon also offers orthodontics, and gives patients the option to straighten teeth with ClearCorrect invisible aligners or the old fashioned way of using plaster casts.
Technology-driven oral-investigative equipment and creature comforts litter the patient rooms inside Image Dental Group's office. Intraoral-photography systems snap digital shots of mouths’ interiors and exteriors to give dentists a clear picture of their patient's health. When peeping below the skin's surface, technicians shy away from the x-ray vision services of overpriced superheroes, instead brandishing digital x-ray systems that chart bone structures with intricate detail. Movies playing on the office's I-Glasses video system and iPods relax patients snuggling in the plush arms of a neck pillow.
While Dr. Navid Javadi has made it his business to specialize in a wide range of dental disciplines, from full-mouth reconstruction to endodontics, his primary concern is a simple one: making sure his patients are fully informed. That?s why he takes time to describe any treatment in depth and why he has included a dental library on his website full of educational videos and articles that explain such complex procedures as root-canal therapy and flossing the teeth of a shark.
