While a horse's teeth tell a trained eye everything about the animal, a human's teeth refuse to tell dentists anything without a lawyer present. Get to the root of the matter with today's Groupon: for $149, you get a one-year general and cosmetic VIP dental services savings plan at Advanced Dentistry of Charlotte (a $395 value). The plan includes the following services and savings:
- One initial complete exam, any necessary x-rays, and professional adult cleaning
- A second cleaning and checkup exam, plus any necessary x-rays, in six months
- Free at-home teeth-whitening system ($300 value)
- 15% off any general dentistry services (such as white fillings, porcelain crowns, bridges, or periodontal treatments)
- 20% off cosmetic smile makeovers (such as porcelain veneers)
- 20% off Invisalign and Six Month Smiles orthodontic procedures
- Free emergency exams and necessary x-rays (maximum of three/year)
Dr. Christopher Bowman revives smiles and cares for put-upon pearly whites with comprehensive, advanced treatments. His private-care savings program includes 12 months of dental services, either included or offered at reduced rates. The program starts on the first visit with an initial complete exam, including an adult cleaning, any necessary x-rays, and gentle reminders that one should not floss with knitting yarn. Teeth bask in the attention for six months, at which point a checkup exam and x-rays verify continued health, and a second cleaning grants surplus megawatts to glowing grins. An at-home whitening system adds layers of luster, and as needed, up to three emergency exams and x-rays ensure incisor peace of mind. General dentistry services, including white fillings, bridges, and getting people to say "ah," rush to the rescue at 15% off.
In addition to the included services, the package sports more savings for bicuspids and their owners. Cosmetic smile makeovers, including porcelain veneers, dance onto teeth at a rate of 20% off, and orthodontic services such as Invisalign and Six Month Smile offer identical discounts. Patients with periodontal disease may require additional procedures and more frequent hygiene visits, which would all be eligible for up to 15% savings.
Advanced Dentistry of Charlotte
Since graduating in 1994 from the University of North Carolina Chapel Hill School of Dentistry, general dentist Dr. Chris Bowman has made his home in Charlotte, where his practice, Advanced Dentistry of Charlotte, continues to brighten smiles. In addition to regular cleanings and family visits, Dr. Bowman places special emphasis on in cosmetic dentistry and invisible orthodontics, restoring crooked smiles to a straight, immaculate state. His experience has earned him the status of Clinical Instructor and Mentor for Six Month Smiles while providing Invisalign treatment for more than 13 years as well. Dr. Bowman also provides sedation dentistry, dental implants, the new Pinhole Gum Rejuvenation procedure for receding gums, and oral appliance treatment for obstructive sleep apnea.
Zoom teeth-whitening treatments whiten teeth by up to 8–10 shades in one session, and custom-made whitening trays allow patients to polish their own chompers at home within about two weeks. To ensure the latest in dental techniques and services, Dr. Bowman attends an average of 100 hours of continuing education a year—far surpassing the state-mandated 15 push-ups.
