James Frantz, D.M.D., and Mark Dorilag, D.D.S., founded Green Valley and co-captain the group's noble mission of dignifying mucky mouthbones with eco-friendly services. During the comprehensive examination that includes an oral-cancer screening, a nimble scaler frolics from tooth to tooth, feeling for suspicious craters and lumpy enamel (a $75 value). To further analyze potential maw pests, patients may be asked to pose for a full set of digital x-rays, which provide dentists with images that are more detailed than traditional film (a $102 value), and/or Panorex x-rays, which afford a panoramic view of the mouth even if clients' faces aren't made of malleable dough (a $90 value). A periodontal evaluation creates a graphic representation of the dentist’s findings to track any signs of periodontal disease and inspire relatable oil paintings (a $56 value).
