Dr. Howard Polansky and his staff understand the importance of traditional dental services. They regularly clean teeth to prevent decay and use digital x-rays to detect cavities that have already formed. But they also leave some room in their schedule for cutting-edge orthodontic procedures such as Ortho-Express, which straightens teeth in six months with tooth-colored brackets and wires. As if to further demonstrate their fondness for new technologies, Dr. Polansky and his team have outfitted their office with complimentary Wi-Fi. Patients can also request video glasses if they'd like to watch a movie during their appointment or pretend they're visiting a dentist from the future.
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.

Dr. Michael Caparas and his associates at each of the seven Metroplex Dental Care locations perform services using advanced technology, such as digital x-rays that release up to 90% less radiation and intraoral cameras. The doctors recommend a "sensible oral-health regimen," which includes regular dental exams, cleanings, and oral-cancer screenings. They help to repair existing maladies with restorative procedures such as root-canal therapy, and makeover smiles with veneers and whitening treatments. For sound sleep, the doctors fit apnea appliances and snore guards, ensuring that patients will no longer wake family members or lure a herd of migrating kazoos into the bedroom. Whatever the service, the doctors put patients at ease with their soothing chairside manner and variety of sedation options.
