At Cornerstone Dental, Dr. Kevin A. Franklin draws from 22 years of experience to beautify and maintain mouths with a full range of dentistry, from orthodontics and implants to TMJ treatments and cosmetic services. Dr. Franklin believes that with modern dentistry’s technology, natural teeth will never need replacing, and so his office is equipped with digital x-rays, which emit less radiation than traditional x-rays, and tooth-colored composite fillings, which, unlike metal amalgam fillings, repair cavities without leaching toxins or attracting magnets.
The dental team also uses technology to enhance patient comfort by pairing each dental chair with a digital TV monitor. The professionals further relax patients by administering sedation pills and humming lullabies.
Slim Pro strives to make fat loss painless and easy. Instead of needles, exercise, or suits made from electric blankets, the med spa uses LED light to virtually melt fat away. Heat-free beams of light traverse the skin, penetrating fatty cells so they release fatty acids into the body. From there, the acids are flushed away during the body's natural detoxification process. Clients can utilize supplements and compression garments to enhance the results. Because the procedure uses no needles or surgery, clients experience no recovery time and can return to daily activities immediately.
At Center for Smiles, Dr. Ramon Ortiz employs his nearly 40 years of experience in dentistry and former tenure as president of the Florida Academy of General Dentistry to promote oral health.

The doctor's lineup of cosmetic procedures includes snoring prevention, in-office whitening, and Invisalign. His friendly staff welcomes patients on their first visit, gathering vital statistics, dental records, and stories regarding each lost baby tooth.
