A trio of dentists—Drs. Doug Kowalczyk, Amy Glasgow, and Vicki Soungpradith—work hard to ensure that every patient at Linworth Family Dental leaves smiling. They accomplish this feat in a variety of ways, including straightening crooked chompers with ClearCorrect invisible orthodontics, brightening teeth using whitening gel, and removing plaque and stockpiles of sugar cubes during routine cleanings.
Since receiving her D.D.S. degree in 1993, Dr. Sheila Shahamat has pursued many forms of dentistry, including cosmetic and orthodontic. Patients of Crown Point Dental Care can take advantage of Dr. Shahamat's advanced studies by augmenting their smiles with services that range from dental implants and TMJ treatments to Invisalign and Zoom! whitening. Ever conscious of minimizing risk to patients, the office only employs distilled water and instruments that weren't also used to excavate the cursed tomb of a pharaoh.
Doctors Richard B. Barry and Beth Love pride themselves on creating a familial atmosphere among their clients and staff. This is reflected in their personal bedside manner, emphasis on preventative dentistry, and continuing education for their staff. The doctors also prioritize advanced technology, and their cosmetic and general dentistry services benefit from cosmetic imaging, intraoral camera usage, and the VELscope Early Oral Disease Detection System. The office's staff also treats TMJ and its resulting headache pain, and partnerships with other doctors allow the office to offer services such as Botox, Invisalign, and Lumineers.
For more than 35 years, dentists at American Dental Centers have polished pearly whites and prevented dental disease with thorough exams. At each of the 14 locations that dot Northern and Central Ohio, patients walk in or schedule appointments so they don’t have to scrape off plaque using chew toys. The center maintains a 24-hour phone line so that patients can arrange to have emergencies treated as soon as possible, and it also offers a Forever White program, in which patients pay a one-time fee and then receive take-home bleaching treatments for as long as they attend their regular three- or six-month check-ups.
Dr. Moore, a graduate of The Ohio State University College of Dentistry, infuses his caring dental check-ups with an innate sense of playfulness—he is a seasoned magician whose sleight of hand has been spotlighted in Tri-Village News. The staff welcome all ages of chompers for routine cleanings and cosmetic procedures. Furthermore, dental hygienists strive to educate patients about procedures and postvisit care, and can pass on their wisdom in English, Spanish, or Hindi. Antique magician posters and stuffed animals ensure a warm refuge for young patrons and for those seeking amnesty from bounty-hunting tooth fairies.
The licensed massage therapists at Worthington Therapeutic Massage—all graduates of the American Institute of Alternative Medicine—cater each stroke to the client’s pain-relief needs. Each session begins with a brief chat to discern the client’s chronic aches, pressure preferences, and underutilized superpowers. They specialize in Swedish, deep-tissue, and trigger-point techniques as well as neuromuscular therapy, which addresses pain within the muscular and nervous systems using soft-tissue manipulation and postural corrections.
