Dr. Carolyn Kupka culls from her more than 30 years of experience in all facets of dentistry to maintain and beautify smiles in both children and adults. Through her work, she has learned that the dental office doesn’t have to be a place that people feel apprehensive about. Once patients walk into her office, she and her team assuage their anxieties with a cornucopia of comforts, such as Starbucks' mocha latte coffee, juices, and Ghirardelli chocolate gift bags. During cleanings, restoration, or cosmetic whitening treatments, clients can relax under steamed towels while resting atop an extra-padded chair. Any residual tension yields to the touch of the onsite massage therapist who sits by to cosset muscles with chair-side massages. DVDs and personal iPods shield ears from ambient office noises and gossip about the Tooth Fairy.
