Dr. Burns and Dr. Jenkins have DDS degrees from the Temple University Kornberg School of Dentistry and the Indiana University School of Dentistry, respectively, and they put that professional training to use at Platinum Dental Care. The doctors work tirelessly to keep up with changes in dental medicine, adopting new techniques and technologies—such as implants—as they develop. While both practitioners promote oral health with a variety of cosmetic and rehabilitative dental procedures including teeth whitening, veneers, and fillings, Dr. Burns focuses on saving teeth through full-mouth rehabilitation and by depositing extra teeth into a piggy bank. Dr. Burns also has a degree in psychology, which helps him empathize with patients and mitigate their concern over dental care.

The dentistry team at Funk Dental skillfully performs treatments that range from routine cleanings to complex oral surgeries. The teeth experts keep up with latest advancements in their field and use technologies such as digital x-rays and digitally crafted Cerec porcelain crowns to keep mouths in mint condition. Patients can also opt for cosmetic procedures such as veneers or teeth whitening.
After completing his degree in dentistry, Dr. Daniel West stepped up his game by signing on for an additional 100-plus hours of continuing education, including a residency in dental implants. This expertise comes in handy on a daily basis at his practice, where Dr. West crafts porcelain crowns and veneers in minutes using a special CEREC machine. The doctor also uses technology for preventive care, including an intraoral camera to get a close-up of chompers and digital x-rays to check teeth’s inner chambers for squatting cavities.
At City Creek Dental, Dr. Landon Bye soothes the skittish beast in his new patients with a luxurious and relaxing environment. The sleek office is furnished with modern décor, quiet, babbling fountains, and state-of-the-art technology. A massaging dental chair awaits patients, offering gentle vibrations to unwind the body and entertain the human laugh-sack while the doctor performs an exam and tooth cleaning. Small-screen aficionados will feel happy as an unfished clam upon seeing the cable television in the exam room display a favorite show or sporting event. After the x-rays, exam, and cleaning, Dr. Bye will deliver a clean bill of health or discuss future treatment; either way, visitors will leave with their teeth as clean as a bar of soap in a Hazmat suit.
