As an experienced and educationally decorated dentist, Dr. James L. Burk prowls mouths for problems lurking above and below surfaces. New patients can schedule a dental exam and submit their natural food processors to a full search of existing restorations, fillings, or crowns. Dr. Burk evaluates mouths with uncompromised thoroughness, peeking around gums and bones of surrounding teeth for glimpses of periodontal disease. In addition to an oral-cancer screening, a full set of diagnostic x-rays capture the inner glow of mouth pearls while searching for decay, tumors, Cheetos cysts, or bone loss.
In Aspire Dental’s clean and technologically advanced office, dentists and staff foster an upbeat atmosphere where patients can relax while their oral-health needs are met. They use the latest diagnostic tools, such as digital x-rays that reduce exposure to radiation, and restore smiles with implants, crowns, and porcelain veneers. To ensure comfortable visits they also offer sedation, which can ease anxieties and even help patients snooze through their treatments.
At Family Dentistry, dentists Jordan Von Seht and Michael Caparas aim to provide technologically advanced services in a welcoming, kid-friendly setting. Dr. Caparas has completed hundreds of hours of continuing education to bring the latest techniques to his patients, and Dr. Von Seht was a practicing physical therapy before deciding to pursue a career in dentistry.
Before appointments for smile-smoothing veneers, Zoom! whitening sessions, Six Month Smiles treatments, or Invisalign aligners, patients nosh on complimentary refreshments while children sit in the play area and discuss baby teeth as a passive income stream. In the treatment rooms—which are outfitted in soothing earth tones and colorful artwork—staffers put guests at ease with blankets, movies and video games, and wireless Internet.
Since graduating from the prestigious University of Texas Health Science Center at San Antonio, Dr. James Lee has been practicing dentistry for more than 15 years. Now at Star Dental of Austin, Dr. Lee performs general family dentistry services alongside advanced restorative and cosmetic procedures, including dental implants and Invisalign treatments. He also performs fillings and root canals with Waterlase technology, a drilling alternative free of heat, pressure, and vibration that, like a stroll through a Las Vegas hotel fountain, features a laser and a refreshing spray of water.
Dr. Hooty Alayan completely dedicates himself to his patients' well-being, but he considers their comfort and relaxation to be almost as important as their oral health. In addition to a comforting, relaxing ambiance where clients can feel at home, Dr. Alayan's technicians pamper visitors with complimentary hot scented towels and massaging dental chairs while they inspect teeth for problematic signs and perform preventive treatments. Dr. Alayan has been utilizing CEREC 3-D technology—which allows users to custom-fabricate crowns and onlays—since 2005, and the staff's arsenal of modern dental gadgetry also includes intraoral cameras and digital x-ray machines with low levels of radiation. Great Oaks Family & Cosmetic Dentistry’s interior also creates a homey, relaxing setting with its bright tones, leather furniture, and marble accents.
