Growing up in Cañon City, Colorado, home of the famous Royal Gorge, Dr. Jay F. Morris learned a thing or two about natural beauty, unchecked erosion, and impressive bridgework. A former pediatric dentist, Dr. Morris began working in cosmetic and restorative dentistry in 1993, and today his dental practice commits itself to helping patients reinforce their smiles' strength and natural beauty with an arsenal of cutting-edge dental techniques geared toward undoing the effects of enamel erosion. His gentle chair-side manner and genuine concern for patients are trumped only by his expertise and focus on mini dental implants. Along with an armory of advanced tools, such as soft silicone dentures, he also uses 3-D digital x-rays that accurately reveal oral topographies while generating significantly less radiation than traditional x-rays or a high-five from Marie Curie.
While patients are having their teeth cleaned and polished inside Blum Family Dentistry's wood-toned treatment rooms, they can focus on a conveniently located television rather than the glare of an examination light. It's details like this, as well as technologies such as low-radiation digital x-rays, that set Dr. Steve Blum's practice apart. In addition to in-office dental treatments, the specialists outfit patients with take-home whitening trays to enhance smiles or dental-themed home decor.
At Kansas City Dental, Dr. Guerschon de Laurent addresses cosmetic, restorative, and preventative oral-health issues at their roots. The multilingual doctor employs a host of technologies, including intraoral cameras and digital x-rays, to project detailed views of the mouth and to find the underlying causes of dental aches and periodontal disease. Dr. Laurent corrects crowding or spacing problems with Invisalign retainers, gently coaxing teeth back into place with such successful results that in 2011 he earned the title of Premier Invisalign Provider in recognition of the more than 300 jaws he’s straightened. A commander in the US Army Reserves Dental Corps, Dr. Laurent also plies his trade abroad while serving members of the armed forces and on humanitarian missions that have taken him to Central America and the Caribbean.
Though Dr. Youngjune Chang has earned an impressive stack of degrees from universities in both Korea and the United States, he never stops honing his craft, enriching his dental expertise with continuing education programs and cosmetic dentistry studies. Together with a team of skilled hygienists and assistants, Dr. Chang helps patients beautify and protect their mouths with treatments ranging from routine cleanings and exams to installing computer-designed crowns and inlays or reshaping gums with targeted laser therapy. The clinic keeps smiles healthy and intact with high-tech procedures and technology, such as dental implants, 3D x-rays, digital x-rays that forego radiation, and an intraoral camera that doesn't even need any tape in it to deter plaque from committing its typical crimes.
Dr. Geoffrey Riley seeks to cultivate the same friendly, familial atmosphere in his small practice that he remembers from his small-town upbringing. After extensive schooling, two years in a large group office, and a residency where he focused on dental implants and full mouth cases, Dr. Riley opened Advanced Dental Arts in June 2011.
His personable approach leads to appointments where he and his staff talk to each patient and get to know them, unlike at other dentists' offices, where patients are referred to by their social-security numbers. Whether he's whitening teeth, conducting a root canal, or straightening chompers with Invisalign, Dr. Riley always takes time to educate patients about the procedure and oral health in general.
At Parkville Dental Center, Dr. John Huke and his team of dedicated assistants and hygienists keep mouths clean and healthy and smiles full and bright with routine care, cosmetic treatments, and vital dental procedures. Patients guard against cavities and decay with regular cleanings and exams or repair damaged and infected teeth with resin-based, metal-free fillings. Zoom! whitening treatments brighten enamel by several shades in just a single visit, and TMJ and migraine relief therapy soothe pain throughout the entire head.
