At A Place to Smile, Dr. Soutas doesn’t need to forbid his patients from consuming coffee, tea, and red wine—he knows he can erase the stains with Zoom whitening. The whitening treatments, as well as regular checkups, dental implants, and root canals, are conducted in a private room, rather than the dental aisle of a supermarket. Dental technicians also wield lasers and other new technology to battle gingivitis, tooth decay, and other maladies.
Each of Professional Dental’s dentists attends lectures, conventions, and classes to further their knowledge of new techniques and cutting-edge technology. They put this knowledge to use during cosmetic and restorative procedures at 10 clinics with extended and weekend hours. At the start of appointments, the dentists thoroughly review the patient’s medical history for anything that could impact health. During the treatments, movies help distract patrons or allow them to watch the scary parts of The Adventures of Milo and Otis with an unshakeable doctor.
Dr. Scott Stringham of Canyon River Dental wants to make procedures as comfortable as possible. Instead of stinging gums with anesthetic shots and boring into enamel with drills, he specializes in air -abrasion fillings, which do away with common dental-work complaints, including heat, metallic vibration, and the faint but persistent sound of crying teeth. The doctor talks to patients throughout each procedure, explaining his treatment plans in both English and Spanish.
Cascade Medical Spa's board-certified plastic surgeon, Dr. Trenton C. Jones, helms a team of medical and aesthetic specialists in bolstering individual appearances with both surgical and noninvasive approaches. Whether trimming down one area, augmenting another, or shaping a third to match a favorite chess trophy, the surgeon forges subtle, natural-looking results that leave minimal scars and often instill newfound confidence. Med-spa technicians harness the power of lasers, microdermabrasion, and chemical peels to diminish blemishes and leave skin looking smooth and youthful.
During dental treatments, patients watch their own satellite television screens as Dr. Goeckeritz and his team tend to teeth with services that include comprehensive exams, oral surgery, and orthodontics. He tends to all ages, installing implant-supported dentures for older patients, distracting young children with video games and toys during routine cleanings, and taking Invisalign impressions for teens with crooked smiles.
His emphasis on patient care is evident in sedation options for both children and adults and 24/7 emergency dental care. He also takes the time to explain what he's doing with 3-D interactive animations and emphatic hand gestures.
