Dr. Mike Kesner has always had a knack for working with his hands. As a boy, he constantly built model vehicles. In college, his plans to become a medical doctor shifted to dentistry because it held more opportunity for the hands-on manipulation of small instruments and precision parts. In 1984, he established Made Ya Smile Dental, a place where he carefully extracts wisdom teeth, fills in spaces between teeth, and installs implants into the jawbone to replace a missing tooth. He also specializes in Lumineers, and his practice?s ten locations together make up the number one Lumineers provider in the world.
Although he and his team of dentists work in separate locations, each of their offices share a similar design and set of amenities. Visitors at any of the ten locations marvel at the reception areas? coffeehouse ambiance as they sit at a caf? table, sip coffee, and work on the movie script for Vampires vs. Martians: The Reddest Dawn. In the treatment rooms, patients drift off while listening to music on the provided headphones. Anxious patients relax with nitrous oxide or the sounds of the rainforest simulated by the staff.
After growing up in Indiana, Dr. Jessica Ransom performed oral surgeries at a non-profit dental center in Detroit, took an immersion-style Spanish course in Puebla, Mexico, and eventually settled in Texas. Nowadays, she performs oral surgeries and converses easily with Spanish- and English-speaking patients at her Houston clinic: Rocky Creek Dental Care. She and her team specialize in preventative care, administering cleanings, sealants, and fluoride treatments in order to keep teeth from fleeing to more promising mouths. They also finesse smiles with cosmetic treatments, which range from veneers to whitening. To ensures that each procedure employs the latest techniques and technology, Dr. Ransom regularly attends continuing education seminars.
Normally a doctor doesn't want to make a patient cry, but sometimes it's a good thing. White Smiles Orthodontics' doctor said that one of his greatest successes was when a bride wept tears of joy upon seeing her improved smile before her wedding. The orthodontist tends to patients of all ages, fixing their smiles with a variety of services ranging from surgery to barely perceptible Invisalign Express, ClearCorrect, MTM Aligner or Clearguide braces.
The office keeps patients comfortable during their visits with flat-screen TVs and Sonos music entertainment. It also offers patients Keurig drinks and bottled water.

Celebrity Smile Express combines a professional-grade formula and blue-light-LED whitening technology to pull stains off of teeth surfaces. Prior to each treatment, a dental professional conducts a preliminary consultation to assess the customer's current shade of their teeth. Sessions last from 20 to 60 minutes and transform teeth up to 10 shades brighter. Whitening gel is safe for sensitive teeth and Vitamin E oil available for application after treatment.
Dr. Rashmi Biyani has made quite a splash in the dental world. After earning a Doctorate in dental surgery, and then going back for a Master of Science to learn the intricacies of Prosthodontics, Dr. Biyani took the community by storm with a presentation on miniature implants. In addition to Dr. Biyani taking home the Cooksey award for her ideas, the American Academy of Implant Dentistry took notice, and rewarded her with a grant that enabled her to keep researching implant abutment.
At her own practice, Dr. Biyani deploys those same cutting-edge techniques to restore folks' smiles with her own brand of cosmetic dentistry. Along the way, she enlists the help of future-grade technology, including digital x-rays that reduce exposure to radiation by up to 80%, and intraoral cameras that feed into wall-mounted televisions. The cameras give both her and the client sneak peaks into the mouth, revealing angles that would have been impossible to see only a few years ago. However, the innovations aren't only technological--Star Plus Dental itself looks more like a spa than a standard office. Hardwood floors run throughout the space, and floor-to-ceiling windows fill the lobby with natural light that dances off an aquarium set into the wall.
