While many onlookers assumed George Washington's teeth were made of wood, this was just an illusion caused by his refusal to floss after gnawing on chopped-up cherry trees. Make the contents of your mouth clear with today’s Groupon: for $79, you get an exam, x-ray, and cleaning with optional sedation at Capital Smiles in Schenectady (a $545 value).
Dr. Shiloh Lieberman specializes in sedation dentistry and holds certification from the Dental Organization for Conscious Sedation. Pack up your tooth collection and submit it to Dr. Lieberman for a thorough exam, including oral cancer screening and jaw-alignment analysis. The diagnostic portion of your dental odyssey concludes with an x-ray to detect any tiny colonies of teeth poachers inhabiting your gums.
A cleaning offers explosive waterworks as a grand finale. After a consultation, those who prefer to watch visions of sugar-free plums during cleaning can elect to undergo 2.5 hours of sedation. Patients can upgrade sedation sessions to include other work such as tooth extraction, implants, fillings, and fire swallowing. The use of sedation requires a third party present to provide transportation.
Inside the Capital Smiles office, spa-like amenities such as teas, scented post-exam facecloths, and aromatherapy and massage pillows coddle your mouth's surrounding body parts. Fleece blankets, televisions, and music with headphones trick nervous teeth into thinking they're in your own living room.
Although reviews are still growing for Capital Smiles, clients rave about their experiences in online testimonials:
- They always made sure I felt comfortable and never had pain. When they communicate with you, you can tell and know that they care about your health and want to help you maintain a beautiful smile. – Robert P.
- Dr. Lieberman is ahead of the curve with respect to client services, using the most recent pain reduction procedures and high tech equipment. – William K.
"After a long and arduous tooth-filled day," Dr. Shiloh Lieberman writes, "I unwind at home by soaking in my custom-made, bicuspid shaped bathtub, then jumping in my molar-shaped bed and drifting off to sleep counting incisors jumping over dental floss." Such a unique and all-consuming love of dentistry is understandably necessary for a dentist who painstakingly combines 30 years of experience with top-of-the-line technology to treat visitors at his comprehensive practice. An active member in professional and philanthropic organizations, a researcher, and a university mentor who keeps school buildings' teeth bright, Dr. Lieberman tackles cosmetic and restorative dentistry from many angles in a comfortable office replete with complimentary beverages and snacks, and a DVD player and massage chair in each room. He's still passionate, however, about sports and art, and he's committed to community service, which he performs with charitable dental organization Crown Council.
