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.
Dr. Joy K. Lunan DDS brings more than three decades of experience to her family dentistry practice, which serves patients in the greater Waterbury, Naugatuck, and Middlebury areas. A native of Mercedes, Texas, she studied at Baylor University and the University of Texas, where she graduated Summa Cum Laude. Today, she works hard to not only brighten smiles with whitening treatments and cosmetic procedures, she also wants to ensure that mouths stay healthy with cancer screenings and preventative care. Regular cleanings, x-rays, and checkups are key in deterring expensive problems in the future and maintaining a healthy mouth for as long as possible.
When she is not caring for her adult patients via cosmetic and restorative dentistry or her pediatric patients, she maintains an active lifestyle of kayaking, cycling, sailing, skiing, and fishing. Much like her work at her dental practice, her interests are diverse and include spending time with family, friends, and her beloved dogs.
Rosenberg Orthodontics composes cockeyed cuspids into orderly oral arrangements with Invisalign technology. Patients wear a series of transparent aligners that, during a period of 6–15 months, nudge teeth into more comfortable, hygienic, and aesthetically pleasing positions. Skilled toothsmiths administer a preliminary exam, x-rays, and impressions, from which they forge a custom-fitted set of mouth armor. Unlike traditional braces, these molar molders are removable—facilitating easy eating and drinking—and nonmetallic, preventing electromagnet makeout sessions.
At Advanced Dental of New England, Dr. Michael Maroon and his staff banish skittishness in new patients with a relaxing atmosphere and meticulous patient care. During a dental exam, the doctor determines the health of teeth and mouth-dwelling gum goblins by performing a periodontal probing. After a thorough cleaning makes teeth as clean as an obsessive-compulsive whistle, Dr. Maroon snaps a flattering set of x-rays, allowing him to deliver a clean bill of health or discuss a future course of treatment.
General dentists, certified lab technicians, and specialists in areas from root canals to orthodontia work together on Columbia Dental’s diverse team. They safeguard smiles with a comprehensive array of services, placing special emphasis on disease prevention with rigorous exams, cleanings, and digital x-rays. However, when disease strikes, the team can treat it in-house, tending to inflamed gums and eliminating chronic pain with root canals. The staff can also straighten crooked smiles with Invisalign treatments, which are more effective than constructing mouth guards from rulers. The office accommodates hectic schedules by staying open seven days a week, with evening appointments available.
