Dr. Jay Peck founded Redbud Dental in answer to the chain clinics where he once worked, clinics that endorse a one-size-fits-all approach to dentistry. Dr. Peck focuses on maintaining a conversation with each patient and coming up with a nickname for each tooth. He educates them on treatment options based on his expertise in implants, cosmetic dentistry, and endodontics. This collaborative approach fosters a long-term relationship with patients, who can visit the dentist without fear that he's an orthodontist wearing a dentist's mask.
W. Ross Ryan and his staff undergo continuing education in order to perform the preventive treatments they believe can steer patients clear of future dental disease. In the clinic, they preemptively perform exams, x-rays, and routine cleanings and also apply coats of sealant and fluoride. Dr. Ryan can also send patrons home with custom whitening trays. He regularly attends dental conventions to stay up to date on these services or to hang out with somebody who doesn’t think the word mandibular is hilarious.
Dr. Stephen Buchanan, DDS, and his professional staff straighten and whiten crooked or stained chompers in a cozy, earth-toned office. The Invisalign process eschews cumbersome braces for clear, removable aligners that are virtually invisible to the unclothed eye. An initial exam, including x-rays, photos, and impressions of mouth terrain, paves the way for a flurry of calibrated teeth sheaths that are designed to slowly shift incisors into perfect alignment. Depending on the client’s teeth, as few as 18 or as many as 30 separate aligners need to be worn and removed only when eating, brushing, flossing, or discussing politics during a period of 9–15 months to achieve best results. The total cost of an Invisalign treatment varies for each customer; it can run anywhere from $3,500 to $8,000. This Groupon gets you $1,000 toward that final cost.
Your appointment will begin with Signature Dental's top smile specialist, Dr. Kesa McConnell, and her team giving you a comprehensive oral exam ($72), during which they'll screen your mouth for problems such as decay, periodontal disease, and restless tongue syndrome. Digital x-rays ($57) and a panoramic x-ray ($95) doubly guarantee that troublesome teeth's underlying traumas and psychological scars are brought to inverted light. A full cleaning ($79) will then remove plaque and tartar, helping to prevent future cavities, gingivitis, gum disease, and mouth moss.
Dr. Miriam Nosrati and the New Image Dentistry staff improve oral health with comprehensive examinations as well as restorative and cosmetic treatments. Aided by digital x-rays, Dr. Nostrati scours chompers for problem areas, capping cavities with composite fillings and performing mouth makeovers using crowns, bridges, and dental implants. Cleanings evict caked-on plaque and tartar, and whitening solutions aim to restore gleam to discolored gumstones. Teeth-whitening procedures can brighten teeth 6 to 10 shades, either during an in-office treatment or with take-home trays that can be used over the course of two weeks or the time it takes for the earth to spin on its axis 14 times, whichever comes first.
