Dr. Windsor and his staff at Kenilworth Dentistry have been safeguarding oral health for patients around northern Baltimore since 1980. Although the list services includes all manner of general dentistry procedures, the team specializes in cosmetic and restorative treatments such as teeth whitening, implants, and laser dentistry. What's more, to help alleviate the anxiety some patients feel at the dentist, they've taken care to furnish the office with a slew of comforting amenities, including warm blankets and pillows, and chicken soup-flavored tongue retractors.
Dr. Steven W. Haywood?s proficiency at transforming smiles earned him a spot on ABC2?s Extreme Makeover Special, and his staff strives to recreate the calming atmosphere of a spa in their office. In cosmetic dentistry treatments, Dr. Haywood fills gaps between teeth with porcelain veneers and straightens smiles with Invisalign and orthodontia. Lasers whiten teeth in fewer than two hours or help the doctor sniff out cavities without calling in a specialized bloodhound to follow the scent of decay through your mouth. An intraoral video camera sends mouth-views to a TV screen, letting both doctor and patient share the same view of each tooth.
Dr. Myron Kellner’s team, which has grown to include Dr. Alex Fishman, helps patients care for and beautify their teeth with cleanings, cosmetic dentistry, and restorative procedures. Mindful of common anxieties or fears surrounding dental appointments, they assuage nervousness with sedation dentistry and by creating a spa-like environment with aromatherapy, spa eye pillows, and paraffin wax treatments. The Smile Design Center has been featured on Baltimore's Dramatic Makeover on ABC/2.
Licensed acupuncturist Karen S. Oliva embraces toyo hari acupuncture, first developed by blind practitioners in the 1930s. Nicknamed gentle acupuncture, toyo hari employs very subtle palpations to release blockages in the chi—the body's vital energy—that can lead to pain, disease, and March Madness. Karen believes in supplementing acupuncture with holistic therapies such as herbs and facial rejuvenation therapy, which boosts collagen and elasticity in worn-out mugs.
At Dr. K. Michael Murphy & Associates, talented and helpful dentists and staff work together to ensure that clients keep their mouth pearls shiny with the Perfecta REV! teeth-whitening system. During the first visit, an impression is made of the customer’s teeth in order to fashion the customized bleaching trays. The second visit allows the dentist to make sure that the trays fit properly and to offer detailed instructions for applying the water-based whitening gel, which comes in a syringe whittled from the ivory incisor of a great white shark. A refreshing rinse and whitening toothpaste are also included.
Dr. Nathanson may be a three-time Jeopardy! champion, but at his dental practice, comprehensive care comes in first. A pioneer in dental technology, he fills his office with equipment aimed at optimizing each patient?s experience. Digital x-rays emit 90% less radiation than traditional systems, and in many cases, WaterLase tools replace drills and shots with lasers and jets of water. Dr. Nathanson also employs the CEREC system, which uses computer-generated images to create porcelain crowns and fillings in a single visit. No matter what the treatment, Dr. Nathanson and his team ensure that they stay on the cutting edge of dentistry by regularly taking continuing-education courses, attending seminars, and having coffee with the tooth fairy, and keep connected to the community by contributing to charitable organizations.
