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, Clearguide, and ClearCorrect 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.

The dentists at iSmile Specialists know what it takes to improve their patients’ smiles. They’ve mastered a slew of cosmetically minded procedures—such as braces, dentures, and veneers—to make smiles look more uniform. This isn’t to say that they ignore dental health, however; they also provide care for gum disease, perform root canals, and insert dental implants.
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.
