For more than a decade, Dr. Lubomir Serafimov—like his father, grandfather, and great-grandfather before him—brightened smiles in his native Bulgaria, only breaking family tradition when he and his family made the move to the United States. Today, Dr. Serafimov lends his overseas experience to Minnesotans, working with patients to maintain their teeth’s health and appearance. Along with family-dentistry services, the staff performs cosmetic procedures such as veneers and implants, which save patients from constantly replacing lost teeth with tiny marshmallows.
University of Minnesota graduate Dr. Jay B. West, his son Dr. Grayson T. West, family man Dr. Peter J. Stanton, and crown guru Dr. Joseph M. Opack enhance smiles with a bouquet of preventive and cosmetic dental services. Armed with modern technology such as intraoral cameras, digital imaging devices, and hovercrafts, the trio of dentists identifies and treats mouth maladies with speed and grace. Treatment areas, designed with comfort in mind, pamper patients with individual music headsets, neck pillows, and toasty blankets, and waiting guests keep busy in the well-appointed reception area with current periodicals and cable TV.
Here at Family & Cosmetic Gentle Dentistry LTD, we believe in dentistry that lasts a lifetime. We have designed this site to help answer your questions about the services we provide, educate our patients, and to let you know about anything new in our office or in the field of dentistry.
Dr. William Johnson II has tamed teeth through general and cosmetic dentistry for more than 36 years—two of which were spent with the U.S. Coast Guard in Boston. At Dentistry at Central Medical, he and his staff perform a variety of treatments and services, including whitening teeth, customizing dentures, and implanting crowns, bridges, and veneers. In particular, Dr. Johnson specializes in properly placing tooth-colored fillings and in gentle injection techniques.
The team designed its practice to respect patients' time and individual needs—the staff are always reachable, as the office's phones transfer directly to a cell phone or begin to melt if unanswered, and appointments can be quickly booked online. Each operatory is replete with a nitrous oxide delivery system and with the newest Cavitron cleaning equipment, which renders mouths immaculate without any gritty paste. High-tech sterilization equipment keeps all tools spotless, and air purifiers remove any airborne allergens.
Drs. Mike and Myron Henrickson, a father-and-son duo, brandish sophisticated systems when nurturing their patients' oral health. Their CEREC 3-D and digital x-ray machines chart tooth and bone structures in intricate detail, giving the dental duo a comprehensive look at potential issues. Diagnodent laser cavity detectors search teeth for the smallest hint of decay. With intra- and extraoral cameras, the dentists can gain an up-close view of clients' molars. The dentists wield these technologies during treatments that range from laser teeth whitening to same-day dentures.
Dr. Collin Hatcher has led the staff of Cedar Cliff Dental Center in tending smiles since he founded the practice in 1985. He enthusiastically embraces new dental technologies such as laser dentistry and Invisalign, which gets teeth to straighten up their act with clear aligners rather than threats of military school. He and his team cover the spectrum of dental services from general cleanings and checkups to teeth whitening. They also practice holistic dentistry, which focuses on the mouth's connection to the rest of the body, preserving natural teeth, and educating patients about alternatives to traditional dental procedures.
