Dentists and tooth pamperers Marissa Garcia and Tim DePalma frequently attend continuing-education courses to keep their dental know-how fresh, building on their doctorates from the Baylor College of Dentistry. Supported by that load-bearing experience, the duo leads Ultra Smiles’s crew of seasoned hygienists, who work in cozy treatment rooms as they carry out a full roster of general, cosmetic, and restorative dental services. The dentists harness laser technology to safely vanquish a wide range of oral ailments and outfit grins with accouterments such as veneers, implants, and clear braces that are as invisible as an imaginary friend’s ghost. Rich hardwood furnishings adorn the floors and walls of Ultra Smiles’s office, where the staff meticulously maintains cleanliness via high-tech water-purification systems and a cutting-edge sterilization center.
