At Aesthetic & Special Care Associates, doctors Keith Nguyen and Jeffrey F. Rutledge prod at plaque buildup to leave mouth pearls polished and healthy. During an initial exam, one of the dental docs will visually assess choppers' vital signs, checking for evidence of periodontal disease, decay, or hidden wiretaps and recommending a proper course of treatment for alleviating any anomalies. Bitewing x-rays allow the cuspid custodian to delve deeper into each tooth's inner workings, utilizing digital radiology to limit exposure to potentially harmful radiation. The one-hour treatment is then capped with a meticulous molar cleaning, which diligently purges each meat masher of plaque and buildup—a process designed to leave patients with the shining grin of an open-mouthed walk through an automated car wash, but with less exposure on the local news.
Established more than 45 years ago, the teeth technicians at Kirkwood Dental Associates seek to listen, educate, and provide comprehensive dental care for patients in a personalized and professional manner. Their practice includes five dentists with more than 100 years of collective experience in eradicating incisor imperfections and capsizing cavities. Visit either of the two locations for all-important dental services. Enjoy the refreshment of a cleaning, including dental exam and bite-wing x-rays that will reveal the hidden treasure map tattooed on the crown of your left maxillary first molar. Alternately, teeth-whitening services begin by having custom trays fitted to in-office teeth. They'll be ready around a week later, along with a take-home bleaching kit sure to expunge coffee stains and freshly spilled tar from dainty dentition.
Dentist and recreational watercolor painter Dr. Jeanette Son brings an artist's aesthetic awareness to the cosmetic and general dentistry practice she founded more than 15 years ago. Backed by a six-person team, Dr. Son enhances pearly whites with smile-beautifying services such as in-office whitening and implants. Her background working with children's dentistry helps her usher baby teeth uneventfully into maturity, and her elegantly executed root canals mitigate chronic mouth pains. To stay abreast of perpetually advancing dental techniques, Dr. Son steadily augments her expertise with continuing-education classes, monthly study clubs, and implant courses. She also caters to a variety of cultures, as she is fluent in Korean.
Dr. Robert Stern takes satisfaction in straightening crooked smiles. He and Dr. Tanya Stavisky are backed by an experienced team, and they all work toward helping their patients achieve ideal oral health and maintain a preventive care regimen. The dentists can install Invisalign or conventional braces to straighten overcrowded or unevenly spaced teeth or correct strong over- or underbites. They also have experience treating conditions such as sleep apnea by designing mouthpieces that keep the throat from becoming blocked during sleep and make dreams about being a professional basketball player more realistic.
At Alrez Family Dentistry, Dr. Alrez and her staff wield advanced technology, continuing education, and years of experience to ensure the oral health of all ages. During a roughly one-hour visit, Dr. Alrez ventures into mouth caves in search of oral cancers, tooth decay, gum disease, and stashes of stored gummy bears. Dental technicians eschew the radiation levels of standard x-rays to scan hidden mouthscapes with low-radiation digital x-rays, which accurately reveal the goings-on between teeth and below the gum line. A gentle staffer will then bathe tusks in a whirlpool of floss and foam, evicting built-up plaque and leaving smiles as smooth and brilliant as Plato's pickup lines.
Prior to perfecting smiles at Brookhaven Family Dentistry––a division of the Centre for Family Dentistry––resident dentist Dr. Dinesh S. Tewari put a BS, MS, and PhD into practice as a published biochemical researcher before graduating from the Temple University DMD program. Now, alongside Dr. Euree Choi, DMD, who helps to helm Drexel Hill Family Dentistry, Dr. Tewari uses the latest smile-taming technology to protect and enhance teeth at four Delaware County locations. Clear, removable Invisalign aligners help to put errant teeth back in line sans braces, and Lumineers porcelain veneers help to mask stained, cracked, or chipped teeth beneath a pearly-white façade that is as thin as a contact lens and twice as easy to floss. Other services include root canals, bone grafting, and regular checkups, which help to keep mouths at the pinnacle of health with careful oral-cancer screenings and a thorough examination of gums, teeth, and joints.
In our dental practice we love to treat friends, not stragers. In this day and age of high volume dental insurance "mills" and mall type dental clinics, we still believe in quality dental care provided in a relaxed, professional pain-free mannor. I have been in practice since 1984 and I love my profession.
