After years of treating his own patients, Dr. K. Michael Dossett founded his multi-office practice, overseeing skilled dentists who treat teeth in Dallas, Frisco, Hurst, McKinney, and Plano. Dr. Dossett selected his dentists carefully, taking pains to choose pros who not only exhibited excellent medical technique but who also had exemplary bedside manner. His goal was to assemble a team by forming dental floss into a lasso and corralling free-range dentists whose undivided focus on each patient, and whose level of personal care, matched his own. By prioritizing communication and friendliness, Dr. Dossett has fashioned a quintet of offices where clients are comfortable and their thoughts are heard.
Drs. Robert Limosnero and Sandhya Krishan, who helm A to Z Family & Cosmetic Dentistry, investigate cavities and prevent future enamel ailments with an eye toward easing the anxieties of nervous patients. Sensitive to the fear many feel about visiting the dentist and having their teeth replaced with jellybeans, the dentists and their staff of hygienists and assistants help patients relax with optional medicinal measures that include intravenous sedatives and relaxing nitrous oxide gas. The twosome then get to work with services such as dental checkups, porcelain veneers, and dentures, using tooth-saving machinery, including digital x-rays, dental lasers, and intraoral cameras.
Each person on staff at Brookshire Dental works to maximize comfort, whether by flipping on cable TV for patients undergoing treatments or bringing blankets to drape over chilly legs. Though the team spaces appointments to minimize idle time, waiting patients can catch up on work or plan work meetings around their coworkers' astrological signs with free wireless Internet access. The staff also takes advantage of advances in dental technology, bustling between digital x-ray machines and intraoral cameras.
When it comes to the integration of Eastern and Western medicine, Dr. Carlos Chapa might as well be the poster child. He spent nearly a decade learning and practicing Western medicine, first as a medic in the U.S. Marines, then as a civilian paramedic. When he took a sabbatical from his budding medical career to study abroad in China, Dr. Chapa's early interest in natural cures?stemming from visits to his grandmother's small town in Mexico, where she acted as the town healer?took root in the form of Traditional Chinese Medicine. He delved head-first into this new passion, earning his master's degree and then his PhD in Oriental Medicine from Dongguk University in South Korea, which led him to study at one of the world's first hospitals that integrated Eastern and Western principles.
Today, Dr. Chapa brings this integrative approach to clients at Valley Ranch Acupuncture. As a licensed acupuncturist who has treated thousands of patients, he uses this 5,000 year old technique to decrease pain, boost energy, and affect hormone levels in clients, all with the aim of treating the root cause of the issues and not only focusing only on the symptoms. True to his forward-thinking style, Dr. Chapa may even swap out the hair-thin, virtually painless acupuncture needles for a laser. The low-energy beam is used to target the same locations and produce the same results as acupuncture needles, but require no penetration of the skin.
If there is one word that describes Active Dental, it is modern. The Baylor College of Dentistry–trained doctors at each of the two practices scan teeth with digital x-rays, display cavities on chair-side flat-screen TVs using intra-oral cameras, and light up their work with Helios technology, LED dental rays designed to focus on mouths instead of shining in eyes.
