Dr. Barry Gibberman has dedicated more than three decades of his working life to improving patients' dental hygiene. After years of helping manage clinical trials for Crest toothpaste at Procter & Gamble, he opened a family practice. He now spends his days removing disease and decay from mouths and beautifying smiles with dentures, veneers, and Invisalign teeth-straightening retainers?so named for their ability to make crooked teeth invisible. Dr. Gibberman still acts as a consultant for Procter & Gamble. He even served as the point person to introduce Crest Whitestrips to the public on the QVC channel.
Dr. Carmy Michael tends to teeth of all types and sizes. Adults come into the office with chompers that are crooked, chipped, or filed into the shape of washed-up boy-band anagrams, and Dr. Michael uses implants, dentures, and crowns to restore smiles. Additionally, children as young as 4 years visit Dr. Michael for their first cleaning and a pep talk on proper oral hygiene.
Dr. Kapers and the staff at Creating Smiles, PC believe that a visit to the dentist doesn't have to be scary or painful. Their modern dental equipment is less invasive and gentler than the stereotypical tools. Both offices are equipped with digital x-rays that minimize radiation exposure. Intraoral cameras show patients what's going on inside their mouths, and full sedation is an option for patients who don't want to think about having a mouth at all. Dr. Kapers' surgical techniques are also gentler; air abrasion cleans cavities of decaying enamel without the sound and vibration of the drill.
With almost 40 years of dental experience, Dr. Kenneth Rundle boasts skills that stretch from routine checkups and fillings to mini implants and sleep-apnea surgery. And true to his practice's name, Dr. Rundle also offers a host of cosmetic services, including Zoom! whitening, veneers, and Snap-On Smile, a removable arch that covers existing teeth with a line of straight, chip-free teeth. When not in the office, Dr. Rundle and his wife, psychologist Dr. Mercedes Rundle, donate their time and talent to underprivileged communities in Kenya and Honduras.
Dr. Irfan Atcha, along with fellow dentists Dr. Jessica Mehta and Dr. Nilofer Khan, uses his 15-plus years of dentistry experience to preserve and protect families' smiles. Understanding that many patients have phobias and dental-chair allergies that make typical dental visits uncomfortable, he's pursued advanced postdoctorate training to help him effectively treat fearful patients. Dr. Atcha's other specializations include one-visit root canals and crowns, simple and complex surgical cosmetic makeovers, and Invisalign aligners.
Dr. Reichwage, twice published in Dentistry Today, continuously expands his dental expertise with postgraduate courses in laser dentistry and the latest in cosmetic and restorative treatments. His staff at Fort Wayne Smiles has followed suit, training in technologies such as Zoom! teeth whitening and dental implants. Together, staff members dole out services that restore the health and beauty of molars, incisors, or retractable fangs, including cosmetic options such as porcelain veneers.
