A winning smile requires more than sparkling teeth. As a dentist, Dr. Monique Mabry has dedicated nearly 20 years to protecting her patients' oral health, keeping an eye out for potential complications while she and her hygienists brighten smiles with in-office whitening treatments and straighten them out with the Invisalign system. Yet, Dr. Mabry and her team recognize that a smile's frame is just as important. This is why she and her aesthetic assistant perform lip-enhancement procedures and inject Botox and dermal fillers, reducing the appearance of creases, crow's feet, or wrinkles.
When she isn't beautifying smiles weathered by time or people mistaking rocks for rock candy, Dr. Mabry devotes herself to philanthropic efforts. In 2009, she assisted the Boston Medical Center Grow Clinic for Children in raising nearly $1 million, and gave her time to the Boston Medical Center Friends of Women’s Health
Invisalign straightens crooked chompers with a combination of highly advanced 3-D computer graphics and the spells of old-fashioned orthodontia. The Invisalign process eschews cumbersome braces for clear, removable aligners that are virtually invisible to the unclothed eye. An initial 30-minute exam, including x-rays, photos, and impressions of your mouth terrain, paves the way for a flurry of calibrated teeth sheaths that are designed to slowly shift walnut crackers into perfect alignment. The total cost of an Invisalign treatment varies for each customer ($4,000–$7,000); this Groupon gets you $1,000 toward that final cost. View some Invisalign FAQs here.
Going to the orthodontist can be an anxiety-filled experience, but it doesn't have to be. At Class One Orthodontic Associates, the friendly staff diminishes nerves by creating an environment where patients are set at ease from their first visit. They're involved in each step of their own treatment process, meeting with the orthodontist to thoroughly go over their plan before getting started. During their appointment, they receive digital x-rays, which can reduce radiation emissions by 90%. After getting their new braces, extenders, or Invisalign inserts, they return regularly for adjustments and depart with an orthodontic care package that contains bands and floss, but not flame decals for molars.
Dr. Khang teams up with the Prospect staff to help clients achieve healthy gums, strong teeth, and a smile bright enough to make astronomers study it. In addition to standard cleanings and exams, the dental team makes over mouths with cosmetic and restorative services, including implants and full-mouth reconstructions. They also screen for oral cancer, TMJ, and other oral-health conditions.
Dr. Zineb Mediouni believes that every patient should have a personalized appointment and treatment; her lengthy list of specialties makes it easy for this vision to become a reality. At ZM Dental, she does everything from routine dental care to cosmetic procedures, including whitening and clear Invisalign orthodontics. With an additional degree in prosthodontistry, or restorative dentistry, Dr. Mediouni specializes in replacing missing or damaged teeth with natural-looking implants, veneers, and dentures customized for each individual's smile. She performs these services with the help of ultramodern equipment such as digital x-rays, intraoral cameras, and conscious sedation for patients who feel anxious about visiting the dentist because the overhead light reminds them too much of their alien encounter.
At a child's first appointment, the staff at The Smile Institute will examine teeth and gums, perform a professional cleaning, take radiographs if necessary, and teach the child how to remove plaque from their teeth and gums. The team also guides the parents through the first appointment, teaching them how to keep their little one's teeth clean, beyond having them swish with glitter. By teaching children and parents proper dental care, the staff equips families with information that will help a child's teeth and gums stay healthy into adulthood. The Smile Institute also works on grown-up teeth too, offering various orthodontic services.
