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 to Distinctive Dentistry, located across from the Sea Shack in Hilton Head Island, just east of Sea Pines Circle. Choose between two options:
- For $59, you get a 20-tray Opalescence Trèswhite teeth-whitening kit (a $120 value).
- For $79, you get an exam, cleaning, and x-rays (a $225 value).
Dr. Shelley Murphy and her team of tooth technicians maintain chomper luster using advanced technology and whitening treatments available only through a dentist. Patients begin their visitation with a thorough oral exam in which the doctor spelunks into mouth caves in search of cavities, mouth cancer, and the secret compartments where gummi bears hibernate (a $77 value). A technician then snaps four digital diagnostic x-rays to expose the hidden goings-on in toothy roots and the corresponding bone (a $55 value). Tusks finish by bathing in a whirlpool of floss and foam that chases away plaque monsters (an $83 value). This deal also includes an infection-control fee (a $10 value).
Patients can restore radiance to their steak shredders using the Opalescence Trèswhite take-home teeth-whitening system, which includes 10 whitening trays for the upper teeth and 10 for the lower. The patient affixes a tray to their fangs so that powerful ingredients can relieve enamel of stains and discoloration, potentially producing noticeably whiter smiles with every treatment. Distinctive Dentistry eschews the sterile appearance of many dental practices, instead filling its waiting room with such homey touches as patterned couches, flower vases, and photo albums of your family vacations. Groupon buyers also walk away with a dental gift bag that includes a toothbrush, dental floss, and other oral-care accouterments.
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.
