Dr. Luis Gonzalez and Dr. Dennis Carr, the namesakes of Gonzalez & Carr, PC, both served a residency in Oral and Maxillofacial surgery after dental and medical school to master all aspects of oral surgery, including administering anesthesia. Dr. Luis Gonzalez and Dr. Dennis Carr are Board Certified Oral & Maxillofacial Surgeons. That’s why, today, they boast enough skill to enact contemporary oral- and facial-surgery techniques. Their services range from wisdom-teeth extraction to jaw surgery to bone grafting. With their team of surgical assistants and laser technicians, Dr. Gonzalez and Dr. Carr also use lasers to remove tattoos and age spots or restore skin to a youthful state.
Flat-screen TVs and comfort-inducing massage chairs beckon clients in the examination rooms at Dr. Cheri Cunningham’s family dental office, where the steady-handed professional cares for the oral needs of both children and adults. The doc and her staff care for and inspect all corners of mouth caves, from creating spot-on replicas of teeth for custom-made whitening trays to examining every millimeter between the lips the uvula for signs of gum disease. The office’s No Cavity club showcases a photo montage of all the cavity-free kids that have been treated by Dr. Cunningham, a panegyric that gives young patients the incentive to brush, floss, and cut back on the sugar in their pretend coffee.
Helmed by a duo of dutiful dental excavators, Clairmont Cosmetic & Family Dentistry refurbishes mouth planks with cosmetic Zoom! teeth-whitening treatments that lighten chompers 6–10 shades. A skilled technician begins each in-office procedure by isolating lips and gums to solitary confinement before massaging smile accessories with a whitening gel that is activated under the brightening beans of the Zoom! light, penetrating the dingy dentile surface to break down stains over four separate 15-minute durations. Once teeth morph into a purer likeness of their former selves, they'll bask in a fluoride bath before a skilled technician takes mouth impressions to mold vinyl take-home trays designed to help maintain moonbeam-esque smiles. Clients then wear these customized trays stuffed with carbamide-peroxide gel overnight for up to four weeks to continuously rid enamel surfaces of discoloration spawned from drinking coffee or squid ink. Higher gel strengths have a greater likelihood of increasing tooth sensitivity, so be sure to consult the staff prior to treatment.
In an immaculate office with dark hardwood floors and dental massage chairs, a friendly staff welcomes patients and takes digital x-rays as it preps them for Dr. Haleigh Blackwell. A native of Birmingham, Dr. Blackwell views her patients as family and performs her preventive, restorative, and cosmetic dentistry with a gentle touch, taking the time to ensure her patients completely understand each procedure and why it is necessary. She keeps herself continually educated and employs the latest technology, such as intraoral cameras and the Biolase laser, which more accurately identifies tiny cracks and cavities caused by wear, sweets, or standing too close to opera singers mid-aria. Whether performing a filling or root canal, she always strives for a pain-free visit and can discuss a variety of methods to relieve any discomfort during visits.
Dr. Trey Rosdick spic-and-spans patients' teeth in the comfort of a massage chair or sends cuspid-whiteners home with the tools needed to white-wash their own tooth-fences. During a 30- to 45-minute exam, a tooth technician peers into the depths of your oral cavity, searching for signs of uncleanliness, decay, or ancient prophecies written on gum walls. Thorough cleaning sweeps away plaque and tartar before gentle polishing with fluoride paste makes enamel shine brighter than an emerald icicle. Digital x-rays let the staff inspect tooth-roots for underlying issues, and expose your body to up to 90% less radiation than traditional film x-rays.
Patients choose between Zoom! or Lumibrite whitening, then sit back as the dentist slathers teeth with special whitening gel. While Zoom! pairs its gel with a specialized light to scare away discolorations and leave food choppers bright, Lumibrite's gel works by itself, a loner in the art of whitewashing ivories. After the procedure, teeth will walk out of the office as white as a glass of fresh-squeezed milk. A set of whitening trays go home with Groupon holders, further aiding in the battle against stained incisor insurgency.

During your appointment at Weiss Dental, a team of smile experts will peer into your maw, checking for signs of tooth decay, gum troubles, and more. High-tech digital x-rays and an intraoral camera help expose cleverly disguised dental details, such as fractures posing as toothaches and car keys posing as misplaced. Before you drive away, sit back and relax as a professional scrubs and shines your smirk.
