Understanding that anxiety can be a big deterrent to visiting the dentist, Dr. Alan L. Nix emphasizes gentle care. He and his skilled staff take the time to explain services to patients before performing them, whether it's a standard examination or a complex standardized test. Dr. Nix also specializes in sedation dentistry, which allows him to efficiently embed implants or extract wisdom teeth while the patient remains deeply relaxed. Should clients’ concerns be more cosmetic, he also can place veneers, whiten teeth, or fit mouths with clear Invisalign retainers to fine-tune smiles.
Operating as part of the larger practice at Forney Wellness, Dr. William Wood provides chiropractic care to help patients find relief from chronic pain without resorting to surgery or prescription drugs. This care typically takes the form of spinal adjustments, which involve using manual techniques to locate misaligned vertebrae along the spinal column and then ease them back into their proper position. When misaligned, vertebrae can place pressure on nerves and interfere with the healthy, natural function of the body's central nervous system and Wi-Fi connectivity. Chiropractic adjustments alleviate this pressure, facilitating communication between the brain and organs and restoring a sense of holistic balance throughout the body.
The team at Forney Family Dentistry strives to engage with patients on a personal level while offering the latest in dental technology. Perhaps Dr. Melina Cozby embodies that attitude best. "When I was a teenager," she says, "I had a dentist that actually listened to me and heard my phobias," she says, "and changed her ‘normal’ routine to make me feel better. From that moment on, I knew I could help people by providing personalized, customized care and connect with each person." Besides offering general dentistry for adults, the doctors and technicians perform pediatric dentistry, gum therapy, headache relief through TruDenta, and cosmetic procedures such as teeth whitening, veneers, and painting a little smiley face on each molar.
Floss Dental's dentists and surgeons, many of whom are often featured on local TV stations, may specialize in preventative care, but they also beautify mouths with cosmetic- and reconstructive-surgery services, such as veneers, Invisalign, and dental implants. They harness panoramic x-rays to get a complete view of the teeth, and they broadcast these pictures on a TV, which helps them explain which treatments are necessary and to point out which tooth would look best with an inlaid diamond chip.
Floss Dental encourages patients to keep coming back by offering free Invisalign consultations and free Boost whitening once a year to those who maintain their regular cleanings. Flat-screen TVs and satellite radio entertain patients during their procedures, and sedation dentistry keeps them free from anxiety in a dream-like state.
Although Dr. Andy Chang practices the full range of general and family dentistry, he excels at restoring and repairing damaged and missing teeth with prosthodontics—a skill that requires an additional two to three years of training for most dentists. Over his 15 years of experience, he has combined his skill in bridges, crowns, and implants with cosmetic services including whitening and veneers. To further augment the restorative process, Dr. Chang’s office also keeps a ceramist on hand—a luxury afforded to just one percent of all dental practices—who does in-house crafting and color-matching of all dental prostheses. During treatments big and small, patients stay relaxed and comfortable, listening to music or daydreaming about stopping a bank robbery armed with nothing but their smile.
