The tooth fairy still rewards adults who keep their teeth nice, leaving grown-up gifts, such as issues of the Economist and Pontiac Azteks, under their pillows. Grin and win with today’s Groupon: for $79, you get a dental package at Distinctive Dentistry on Hilton Head Island (a $215 value). The package includes the following:
- An exam (a $77 value)
- Cleaning and polishing (an $83 value)
- Bitewing digital x-rays (a $55 value)
Nestled within a wooden façade in the secluded woods of Hilton Head Island, Distinctive Dentistry’s own Dr. Murphy and her staff brighten smiles using the latest technology and equipment. An exam helps diagnose any warning signs of decay in the ivory towers, and bitewing digital x-rays reveal snapshots of each tooth below the gum line. As the prophylaxis exorcises plaque and remnants of chewed-up prenups, patients can curl up under blankets as they glance out the window at golfers across the woods. The sunny reception area’s striped sofas provide a relaxing place to practice sniffing out remote controls or flip through magazines to the soft gurgles of an indoor waterfall.
Nestled in a scenic spot southeast of Sea Pines Circle, Distinctive Dentistry has kept Hilton Head chompers in tip-top shape for the past 25 years. Dr. Shelley Irving Murphy helms the practice, complementing preventative care with cosmetic treatments. As a certified Invisalign provider, she equips patients with translucent aligners that gradually shift teeth into a single-file line. She consults with patients and works alongside hygienists inside sunlit rooms that overlook trees and nature. Meanwhile, in the facility's spacious waiting room, a stone waterfall greets visitors and serves as a comforting reminder to gargle lucky pennies before each dental checkup.
