For more than 35 years, dentists at American Dental Centers have polished pearly whites and prevented dental disease with thorough exams. At each of the 14 locations that dot Northern and Central Ohio, patients walk in or schedule appointments so they don’t have to scrape off plaque using chew toys. The center maintains a 24-hour phone line so that patients can arrange to have emergencies treated as soon as possible, and it also offers a Forever White program, in which patients pay a one-time fee and then receive take-home bleaching treatments for as long as they attend their regular three- or six-month check-ups.
Dentists oversee the operation at Gordon Dental Care: Drs. Peter G. Gordon and Ellen K. Friedman. Even better, each one brings something unique to the table, notably Dr. Gordon's master status from the International Congress of Oral Implantologists, Dr. Friedman's Invisalign certification, and both of their degrees at Case Western Reserve University. Together, the duo and its staff provide an array of dental services, including cleanings, implants, teeth whitenings, and crown procedures.
Looking at his datebook, you would think Dr. Kent S. Lamoreux never gets tired. When he’s not working at his dental practice, he's teaching as an adjunct professor at the Case School of Dental Medicine. When he's not teaching, he donates his time and dental expertise to the Free Medical Clinic of Greater Cleveland. After more than 30 years as a dentist, he tried to give retirement a shot, but quickly found that he enjoyed his work even more than gardening, airplane-model building, beekeeping, or the other hobbies retired people are legally required to take up.
Happily back at work, Dr. Lamoreux’s dental practice benefits from his boundless energy and zeal. When he found he wasn't content with standard extractions and root canals, Dr. Lamoreux learned to cover the full range of dental services, from general dentistry to cosmetic and restorative types. His comprehensive knowledge base means that he can treat patients himself, which is the leading cause of the thick layer of dust on his rolodex of dental specialists.
For 30 years, Dr. Harper and Dr. Gilmore have worked to fix up the smiles of their patients at their University Heights family dental practice. They skillfully perform basic cleanings and exams, fillings, crowns, bridges, root canals, and implants.
The checklist for pre-surgery sanitation at Premier Dental is meticulously scrutinized all the way down to the operatory water. A high-tech filtration system courses water through two filters to remove chemicals and particulates before an ultraviolet light disintegrates any lingering bacteria. To match, the tools are scoured by a high-tech sterilization system that surpasses OSHA requirements.
This highly detailed process represents Premier Dental’s head dentist, self-proclaimed perfectionist Dr. Rita Kutsikovich. Earning diplomate status through the International Congress of Oral Implantologists, Dr. Kutsikovich has the credentials and continuing education to support her passion for dentistry. Her specialty services include dental implants, crowns, bridges, and sedation dentistry, which can help patients to feel less anxious about procedures and make teeth sit still. She also performs general exams, cleans teeth, and seals them.
When Dr. Naeemah Lewis looks at teeth, she sees the entire face. In her eyes, teeth are more than just appliances for chewing food. They are support structures that hold up the lower part of the face, contributing significantly to a person’s overall appearance. With this outside-in approach to orthodontia, Dr. Lewis is able to carefully consider facial aesthetics, shape, and balance before designing an orthodontic plan. This first step in designing an orthodontia plan is crucial because the results of orthodontic treatment, like the highest-quality haircuts, can last a lifetime.
Dr. Lewis outfits her warm purple-and-blue office with advanced orthodontic technology. Digital x-rays reveal the hidden positions of roots while reducing radiation, and fully digital displays looks out for the environment by eliminating the need for paper.
