Dr. Bert Franklin cares for smiles with a full range of preventive, corrective, and cosmetic dental services for which he pursues continuing education. A Tulsa native, Dr. Franklin headed to the University of Oklahoma College of Dentistry to earn his toothy know-how. From there, he heeded the call of southern climes such as Mexico and Barbados, where he helped to found dental clinics for the underprivileged. Dr. Franklin then returned to Tulsa to build the Signature Smiles of Tulsa practice upon his charitable and worldly experiences.
Dr. Lauren Whenry never wants fear of the dentist to come between a patient and his or her smile. With a gentle chairside manner, she educates patients on what to expect before filling cavities, affixing Lumineers veneers, or measuring bites for Invisalign braces. Her special training in sedation dentistry allows her to customize oral sedatives for patients who are especially nervous or preparing for more involved treatments.
The licensed staff of the full-service Copper Canyon Day Spa entreats guests to relax amid a variety of soothing services. Swedish, therapeutic, and deep-tissue massages lift aches and pains from backs and muscles, and facial treatments anoint faces with cleansing ingredients. The spa also offers body treatments with mud or salt, waxing, and packages.
Drs. Chris and Kristie Vinson helm Tulsa Precision Dental, where they welcome patients for general, restorative, and cosmetic dentistry. Using the latest in dental technology and techniques—such as digital x-rays and invisible braces—they work on enhancing smiles. Though they’re equipped to deal with periodontal disease and fix dental problems with such restoration treatments as root canals, implants, and composite fillings, they stress preventive care through annual exams. They also stress the importance of brushing twice a day, noting that it’s especially important at night if you don’t want to scare away the Sandman.
Although his full range of dental treatments are informed by more than three decades of experience, Dr. Madamba has never rested on his professional laurels. Throughout his career, he has kept abreast of emergent dental technology with regular training courses, adding not only conscious sedation and Invisalign clear braces to his practice, but also signature dental implants, which restore smiles with fully functional teeth.
Dr. Miriam Nosrati and the New Image Dentistry staff improve oral health with comprehensive examinations as well as restorative and cosmetic treatments. Aided by digital x-rays, Dr. Nostrati scours chompers for problem areas, capping cavities with composite fillings and performing mouth makeovers using crowns, bridges, and dental implants. Cleanings evict caked-on plaque and tartar, and whitening solutions aim to restore gleam to discolored gumstones. Teeth-whitening procedures can brighten teeth 6 to 10 shades, either during an in-office treatment or with take-home trays that can be used over the course of two weeks or the time it takes for the earth to spin on its axis 14 times, whichever comes first.
