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.
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.
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.
Patients seeking both regular checkups and more complicated services are in good hands with Dr. Thang Cao Nguyen. He received his doctorate degree in dental surgery from Loma Linda University in California in 1993, and has spent his days since performing root canals, dental implants, and tooth extractions. His orthodontic patients include both adults and children.
Filbert Family Dentistry views oral health as an important part of overall health and quality of life, and its staff puts patients at ease with a friendly demeanor and a modern office. Dr. Dat starts by surveying the mouth's great wall of enamel with a thorough exam and x-ray battery, which exposes any chips, cracks, cavities, invading barbarians, or signs of disease. Following the tusk tour, Filbert's professional cleaning crew will scour away all plaque, tartar, and empties from last week's molar house party—sending your face on its way with a blazing, blinged-out smile.
