Dr. Darron Tanioka leaves his patients smiling after providing them with general, cosmetic, and orthodontic dental services. At Creekside Dental, he examines mouths for signs of decay or disease and removes plaque and tartar covering the teeth. He also whitens teeth with Zoom treatments that use a light-activated hydrogen-peroxide gel to remove red-wine, smoking, and coffee stains. His services extend beyond mouth care, however. He also helps treat sleep apnea using a comfortable dental appliance.
Smiles West's dentists and oral specialists tackle all levels of dentistry from general exams to orthodontics, oral surgery, and cosmetic whitening. Each of the seven locations uses state-of-the-art equipment—including intraoral cameras and digital x-rays—to provide the most thorough examinations possible. During more intensive procedures, they enhance comfort by administering sedatives or sprinkling teeth with fairy dust.
One moment, Dr. Coleman was standing tall on the lake’s water, balancing on wooden skis as water splayed behind him like a rooster tail. The next moment, he crashed headfirst into the water, cracking his front teeth on the way down. It wasn’t until four years later that Dr. Coleman regained his smile, an experience that left him yearning to study dentistry.
Now at the helm of Coleman Dentistry, Dr. Coleman works hard to pass on that feeling of being able to grin with confidence in a comfortable environment. Slight bubbling sounds drift from a hanging fountain in the waiting room, inducing daydreams of faraway lagoons or scuba divers singing Frank Sinatra. During appointments, patients sink into a heated massage chair, swaddle themselves in warm blankets, or watch flat-screen TVs inside the treatment room. Other perks include dark sunglasses, earplugs, and afternoon wines to cap off clean bills of dental health.
