Dr. E. Maurice Henderson leads the crew of dental hygienists and assistants that make up Dedicated Dental Services & Onyx Dental Associates. Dr. Henderson splits his time between two locations, where he removes plaque and tartar from teeth and lint from zipper pockets in the inner cheek. The doctor performs not only routine cleanings and exams, but also restorations, teeth whitening, and root canals.
In elementary school, Quanda Johnson told her classmates she wanted to be a dentist when she grew up—and that’s just what happened. These days she is indeed a licensed dentist who has been helping Today’s Smiles for more than a decade. She specializes in cosmetic dental treatments, such as veneers, cosmetic fillings, and stain removal via whitening rather than outfitting each tooth with a slipcover. She and her team also offer general dentistry services, including exams, extractions, and even braces.
At Astounding Bright Confident Smiles Dental Center, which is led by general dentist Dr. Charzetta Moore, the staff seeks to preserve the shine of its patients' smiles with a multifaceted approach to dentistry. The first line of defense is general and preventive care, which covers cleaning, periodontal health, and strategies for teeth to use in fighting off the Tooth Fairy. Should problems arise, Dr. Moore can perform extractions, create crowns, and help address issues such as sleep apnea. For patients who want more of a full-mouth makeover, Dr. Moore also offers braces and cosmetic services that can completely renovate teethscapes.
As their name implies, the dentists at Southfield Cosmetic Dentistry know how to make teeth look good on the outside. But they have the skills to keep them healthy on the inside, too. Routine exams and x-rays ensure that chompers grow strong and stay cavity free, while whitening procedures give patients movie-star smiles.
While others grow up wanting to be astronauts and firefighters, Dr. Winter dreamed of the dental arts. After he graduated summa cum laude from Eastern Michigan University, Winter encountered a strong gust of wind that filled his graduation gown and carried him just a few miles down the road to the prestigious University of Michigan dental school, where he continued his studies.
Dental technology has advanced quite a bit in the more than 25 years since Dr. Winter began practicing, but he and his staff at Progressive Dental Professionals pride themselves on staying abreast of the changes. Among the many services and amenities they offer today are realistic Lumineers, single-visit teeth-whitening treatments, and flat-screen TVs.
The Wow Smile Express teeth-whitening system is a safe and painless way to brighten your smile and feign a darker haircut. Unlike at-home whitening products that only address surface discoloration, Wow Smile's cosmetic treatment tackles both surface stains and deep-seated tooth regrets, targeting the dingy evidence of coffee, tea, cola, red wine, and tobacco, a cocktail known in some circles as "the filibuster." During your 20-minute treatment, a Wow Smile–trained professional will apply a special gel that will catapult water and radical hydroxyl ions into the tubules of your teeth, breaking apart stains to reveal a smile two to six shades brighter.
Dr. Rachel Woll treats teeth in a renovated home complete with a brick fireplace and leather-upholstered chairs.
