At Kennedy Pediatric and Family Dental, a team of talented dental professionals provide preventative, therapeutic, and cosmetic services for kids and adults. Dr. Ridhima Goyal, an experienced graduate of Boston University School of Dental Medicine, leads the staff, and continues to broaden her skill set by attending continuing-education courses and occasionally replacing her own teeth with piano keys. Her staff works hard to make dental visits as painless as possible during basic cleanings, root canals, veneer implantations, and extractions. They also outfit their paperless office with state-of-the-art equipment such as digital x-rays and a surgical treatment space.
WH Hamptons Dental Group provides family and cosmetic dental services that keep smiles healthy and bright. During a standard visit, the adult or pediatric dentist performs a comprehensive intraoral exam, complete with radiographic evaluations, and polish teeth until they shine. Beyond traditional services, the dental professionals also offer in-office whitening and Hollywood-style smile makeovers.
The staff at West Main Dental aims to enliven their patients’ experience during routine checkups and cosmetic procedures. Each treatment room is outfitted with a television for guests to watch and a mime to translate programs into our universal language of Mime. Out in reception, a children’s play area keeps tots from getting antsy while awaiting a visit with the dentist.
At Southington Dentistry, Drs. Neil Salesky and Michael Reisman convince adults and children that dentist visits are an opportunity to unwind. Many of their patients barely feel their services due to advances in oral sedation—a pill that induces a conscious state of relaxation—and drill-less dentistry, which employs air abrasion in place of intimidating tools during some filling procedures. Patients further relax with provided headphones and listen to music or watch television while the dentists, who prioritize gentleness and a cheery bedside manner, tend to their teeth. The dentists' caring nature even extends outside the office. As they address medical and cosmetic concerns, they simultaneously help animals in need—10% of all their hygiene profits go toward animal rescue groups and denture fittings for birds who hope to smile.
Drs. Eugene Markowski and Alison Nicholes and their seasoned team of teeth technicians have been tuning-up clients’ tusks for more than 30 years. Mouth owners can brighten pearlies up to nine shades with illuminating whitening treatments performed in-office or at home. After a brief exam, techs create custom molds to fit ivory facades, ensuring whitening trays fit as snugly as Lycra shorts after a pie-eating contest. Once splints are ready, clients will either take home the molds for DIY brightening with NiteWhite kits, or kick back in dentist chairs for a one-hour in-office treatment. In-office clients are sent home with NiteWhite touch-up kits that help maintain incisors’ clean new look in conjunction with regular brushing and anonymous donations to the Tooth Fairy. At-home treatments may take up to two weeks of hour-long daily use to deliver optimal results.
