With more than 40 years of combined experience, practiced dentists Dr. Jeffrey Hochstein, clinical instructor at the University of Pennsylvania School of Dental Medicine, and Dr. Paul Ahn, Dental Officer in the Armed Forces for four years, inspect pearly whites for cosmetic and medical ailments. The dentists send patients home with the LumaLite whitening pen, named one of Dentistry Today's top 100 dental products of 2011 to augment patients' grin grills. Upon entering the office, guests meet up with a personal advocate who guides them through their appointment. Next, an exam and oral-cancer screening espies signs of potential mouth maladies before a full set of digital x-rays gets beneath the surface of clients' kissers, discovering hidden cavities or baby teeth disguised as adult teeth in order to legally buy candy cigarettes. Ivories then shed plaque and bacteria during a comprehensive cleaning that scrubs at stains stemming from tobacco, coffee, and wine. After their session, patrons can further amp up their smiles' sheen with a LumaCool whitening pen. The portable twist-click pen rests comfortably on teeth, and can brighten chompers any time of day with a brush-tip applicator, eschewing trays, strips, impressions, and dishwashers strapped to headgear.
