Dr. Mike Kesner has always had a knack for working with his hands. As a boy, he constantly built model vehicles. In college, his plans to become a medical doctor shifted to dentistry because it held more opportunity for the hands-on manipulation of small instruments and precision parts. In 1984, he established Made Ya Smile Dental, a place where he carefully extracts wisdom teeth, fills in spaces between teeth, and installs implants into the jawbone to replace a missing tooth. He also specializes in Lumineers, and his practice’s twelve locations together make up the number one Lumineers provider in the world.
Although he and his team of dentists work in separate locations, each of their offices share a similar design and set of amenities. Visitors at any of the twelve locations marvel at the reception areas’ coffeehouse ambiance as they sit at a café table and sip coffee. In the treatment rooms, patients drift off while listening to music on the provided headphones. Anxious patients relax with nitrous oxide or the sounds of the rainforest simulated by the staff.
