Dr. Gary H. Mikels believes that the most important factor in any trip to the dentist is trust. With more than 30 years of experience under his belt, he calms jittery nerves with his tranquil chair-side manner and by fielding any mouth-related queries. A specialist in bonded ceramics, he quickly closes gaps between teeth and repairs chips, leaving teeth even for beautiful smiles and the ability to bite sleeping coworkers without leaving incriminating marks. A suite of advanced technology further streamlines visits; an in-house lab quickly manufactures custom implants, digital x-rays speed up the checkup, and an intraoral camera takes panoramic pictures of mouths for easy diagnoses.
Proud lifelong area resident and accomplished dentist Dr. Karen Martin-Phillips dutifully operates a practice built on strong doctor-patient relationships, high-tech equipment, and continuing her education across several different fields of dentistry. A hardworking team of hygienists and administrators staffs an office equipped with an arsenal of sophisticated equipment, including distilled-water dental units, an ultramodern sterilization apparatus, and digital x-rays that reduce radiation exposure and accidental evolution of superpowers by up to 90% over traditional film. The in-house lab swiftly repairs and fashions dental fixtures, and a décor of comfy leather seating in the lobby and violet-colored, sunny treatment rooms ensconces visitors in an aura of welcoming relaxation.
Light Tuscan stonework surrounds the entrance of Dolce Med Spa & Boutique, welcoming guests to this 5,000-square-foot oasis of pampering. Owner Tracey Lively opened this luxurious escape just last year and offers a menu of medical-spa and day-spa services for men and women alike because, as she noted in an article in the Patriot Ledger, many spas in the region weren't meeting the beautification needs of both genders. Harvard-trained plastic surgeon Dr. Daniel Del Vecchio and the medical aestheticians on staff tend to chemical peels and assorted laser treatments, and a troop of skin experts and body therapists slathers bodies with Glysomed professional facial products, soothing massage oils, and Cinnabon frosting.
Alright Dental keeps chompers in champion form. The family-owned and operated business maintains a professional yet comfortable atmosphere for a host of general dentistry services, including cleaning teeth, conducting root canals, and adjusting braces. The seasoned team performs cosmetic services too, with in-office bleaching and take-home kits that leave teeth whiter than keeping them out in the sun for several days.
Although their services deal entirely with the mouth, the staff of Smile Designs Inc. initially depend on their ears—they prize the sense of trust that results from truly listening to their patients. Led by Dr. Shabana Chaudhry, they take clients from a preliminary exam through custom cosmetic and medical dental plans, which can include teeth whitening, veneers, crowns, implants, and even root-canal therapy. Digital x-rays help identify sources of decay or pain in teeth, and the technicians' devotion to continuing education ensures they stay on top of other high-tech trends, such as installing surround-sound systems in back molars.
Licensed dentist Dr. John M. Burns uses his vast knowledge of the field and state-of-the-art technology to keep his clients’ mouths healthy and smiling. He deftly helms x-ray machines, intraoral cameras, and electric endodontic hand pieces to perform services such as root canals, extractions, and implant installation. Dr. Burns also specializes in general services such as veneers, crowns, orthodontia, and Invisalign.
