An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure, much to the chagrin of brokers who invested heavily in cure. Get in while prevention’s still hot with today’s Groupon: for, $99, you get a dental exam package at Anchorage Healthy Smile Center (a $736 total value). This package includes the following items:
- One comprehensive oral exam (a $125 value)

- Four cavity-detecting bitewing x-rays (an $87 value)
- One take-home teeth-whitening kit (a $400 value)<p>
Degunking grills and fighting gum disease since 1980, Dr. Terry Preece opened Anchorage Healthy Smile Center in 2010. Patients recline and breathe in aromatherapy while specialists meticulously examine tusks for any sign of decay. Stereo headphones entertain patients as a hygienist scours chompers and lures out loitering plaque and stubborn Swedish Fish with a string of floss. Four bitewing x-rays swoop into mouths with bone-viewing goggles to expose hidden cavities. Before clients leave, at-home teeth-whitening kits stow away in exiting satchels and await their chance to polish stain-tarnished smiles.
