From Our Editors
Though she graduated from dental school with honors and now has 17 years of clinical experience, Dr. Darby Kaiser puts as much stock in her art as her résumé. She believes that creative talent is essential to cosmetic dental work, and that there's a sound connection between a beautiful mouth and a healthy one. Her services are therefore heavily customized, relying on in-depth consultations. She even remains involved in procedures that many offices might outsource, such as the creation of porcelain veneer mock-ups. During the process, she helps to plan the veneer's shape and angle, developing a model that the client can preview before the final veneer is applied.
In keeping with Dr. Kaiser's focus on comfort, Montage Dentistry also has its own spa retreat. The dental spa offers relaxation therapies, paraffin hand treatments, and beverages such as juices and herbal teas. Flickering candles and calming music fill the space, putting visitors at ease more effectively than a hypnotist waving a toothbrush in front of their faces.
