Following in the footsteps of his father and great-uncle, Dr. Mark Marion went to the University of Pittsburgh Dental School and has worked to improve his neighbors' and friends' teeth ever since. He teamed up with Dr. Cynthia McNeil to open up a private practice, and the pair have been improving smiles for over 25 years. Today, their office is outfitted with a digital x-ray machine that reduces radiation exposure, an ultrasonic cleaning system, and sedation dentistry—available for some of their treatments. Recognizing that a winning smile is about more than having straight teeth and gums that don’t leak battery acid, they've also added cosmetic facial procedures—such as Dysport—to their repertoire.
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.
During his three decades of dental experience, which included a six-year stint as a general dental officer for the United States Air Force, Dr. John N. Santin has seen a lot of smiles. And from both of his Akron Area Oral, Maxillofacial & Facial Cosmetic Surgery Center offices, Dr. Santin continues to gaze at pearly whites, keeping teeth healthy and bright with surgical and cosmetic dentistry services including corrective jaw surgery, wisdom-teeth extractions, and bone grafting. But teeth aren’t the only thing on Dr. Santin’s mind. He also provides his patients with a range of cosmetic treatments, from rhinoplasty and facial implants to Botox injections and chemical peels. The offices even come equipped with advanced ActiveFX and DeepFX fractional lasers, which are designed to blast away layers of sun damage, dead skin cells, and temporary tattoos that seeped down into the dermal layer.
At Solon Dental Excellence, doctors Alia Kalaf and Laura Williams combine patience, listening, and a gentle approach when accomplishing preventative, cosmetic, and surgical dentistry. They also stay up to date with continual education and utilize modern tools such as digital x-rays, which reduce exposure to radiation. For the convenience of their patients, they offer morning and late afternoon office hours, as well as Saturday appointments.
Dr. Jane L. Dodson and her caring staff maintain and beautify smiles with a gentle chair-side manner in an office lush with sunlight and plant life. They keep patients relaxed and apprised through detailed explanations of each procedure, and the lobby's flat-screen TV plays educational videos. Children can play with in-office kaleidoscopes, and their parents can stock up on gallons of alkaline water, effective for balancing the body's pH or making lemonade milder. Advanced dental technologies sharpen Dr. Dodson's practice. Intraoral cameras capture accurate, up-close shots of individual teeth, and digital x-rays reveal hidden goings-on without exposing patients to the radiation doses characteristic of traditional x-ray equipment.
Calling on more than 40 years of experience, Beachwood native Dr. Daniel Glick and his staff of seasoned technicians polish teeth with general and cosmetic dental services. Families can flock to Dr. Glick's warm, welcoming office, which was designed for his patients' comfort, complete with window-facing chairs that allow patients to admire the green landscape or survey it for soon-to-spout flash mobs. There, they'll also find the latest treatments for everything from gum disease to temporomandibular joint disorder, as well as services tailored to treat dental issues specific to kids and athletes. Dr. Glick is so confident in the care provided by his office that he offers a warranty that covers any damaged sealant, composite filling, crown, or bridge so long as patients maintain their regular six-month checkups and avoid snacking on rocks.
