With 40 years of oral-arts experience, Dr. Ken Hamada oversees a small, intimate practice that's devoted to providing personalized dental pampering. Beginning with a full exam and oral-cancer screening ($85), the one-hour comprehensive tooth-tinkering package includes a panorex x-ray ($125) and four bitewing x-rays ($60), followed by a basic cleaning ($97) and fluoride treatment ($40). Dr. Hamada also helps brighten and beautify bicuspids with his 30-minute exam and whitening package. Tooth technicians first march molars through a limited oral exam ($60) and four bitewing x-rays ($60) before teaching them how to tint themselves using the take-home Venus White system ($85) combined with simple meditations and a dried spaghetti noodle.
During the complete exam, a talented toothologist examines the chompers for any obvious red flags trapped between the teeth. To go further than the eye can see, any necessary x-rays are snapped for a behind-the-scenes peek at the relationship between mouthbones and jaw. The meticulous cleaning will remove buildup as no handheld bristles can, leaving smiles as sparkly and pristine as the day they were born.
The continually educated mouth specialists of Sunshine Dental keep smiles healthy with a tag team of preventative dentistry and modern technology. During the appointment, a licensed dentist scours the mouth for signs of decay, cavities, and lost gummy bears (a $97 value) with an attention to detail normally only exhibited by pickleball referees. X-rays, including four bitewings, an extraoral, and a panoramic (a $234 total value), allow the certified tooth whisperer to inspect cuisine crushers in greater depth in a set of black-and-white snapshots. Take-home whitening treatments evict the yellow from teeth with stain-fighting bleach and a sheriff-delivered court order. Mouths that return dutifully to the dental office every six months for a checkup receive additional treatments for free.

Doctor Gary Wall and his esteemed dental staff at Edmonds Family Dentistry specialize in comprehensive and restorative dentistry for children and adults, including orthodontic treatments with ClearCorrect invisible braces. After patients qualify for the treatment through an initial consultation, a dental professional creates impressions of the teeth to fashion into translucent aligners that patients remove only when eating, brushing, or chewing on a dog bone. The invisible braces gradually pull chompers into proper placement without altering smiles with clunky brackets or wires. Clients return for frequent adjustments until bites look and feel straightened. While waiting for appointments, guests can lounge in the office's spa-like massage chairs or listen to the sound of metal braces being ground into coins on provided stereo headsets.
