At the Centre for Contemporary Dental Concepts, Dr. Smallwood balances his professionalism with warmth. His staff offers patients complimentary coffee, tea, and Otis Spunkmeyer cookies. After inviting patients to recline in a plush leather dental chair, the dentist performs services that range from whitening and implants to designing intraoral devices for snorers.

Eric L. Kerbs, DDS, oversees each of My Family Dental Centers' 10 office locations, where his experienced staff practices general, cosmetic, and restorative dentistry services, including Invisalign, TMJ therapy, and in-office teeth-whitening treatments. Not content with resting on his laurels after earning his doctor of dental surgery from Virginia Commonwealth University and completing a one-year fellowship that focused on full-mouth reconstruction, Dr. Kerbs continually updates his expertise by furnishing each office with advanced equipment, staying on top of advances in his field, and periodically hiring a translator to help him interview teeth directly.
A dental group owned locally by Arizona licensed dentists, SunWest Dental Centers cares for the oral health of the greater Phoenix area with budget-friendly family dentistry and custom dentures. Skilled dentists perform general services for adults and children such as fillings, crowns, and root canals, along with cosmetic treatments such as whitening.

After meeting and receiving degrees from Temple University School of Dentistry, Drs. Boyd Patummas and Linda Ma went on to form their own one-shop stop for general and cosmetic dental needs—Smile Innovations.

The skilled molar maintainers at Every Kid's Dentist keep children's mouth mountains free of cavities and crevasses with youth-friendly services. Bolster young one's budding bicuspids with an oral exam and cleaning, to give the old heave-ho to any tartar and plaque buildup, effectively clearing the way for optimum black-light reflection. The intensive pearly white inspection continues with a set of x-rays with bitewings, a film holder with a fin that simultaneously displays the innards of the upper and lower teeth. Before departing the dentist chair, tykes undergo an enamel-fortifying fluoride treatment to combat tooth decay, and walk away with an electronic toothbrush, designed to effectively dismantle plaque uprisings and rival the buzzing of any nearby bees.
Dr. Spencer Bramwell of B. Well Dentistry gets plenty of practice working with children—helped, undoubtedly, because he has five of his own. This role as father has translated to the chair, where he applies a nurturing disposition to both children and adult patients. Before administering any of his general or cosmetic treatments, he thoroughly explains the procedure first, which he can do in English or Spanish. This often overlooked step ensure patients aren't alarmed by any unexpected sensations, use of tools, or the dentist's talking wristwatch.
