Dr. Ricardo Hernandez, DDS
A trip to Dr. Ricardo Hernandez's office is a little like walking into the living room of a friend—albeit a friend who happens to be a dentist with more than two decades of experience. When patients arrive, they pick up a drink from the refreshment center. When they're called into the treatment room, they lie back and tune into a ceiling-mounted plasma TV and built-in headphones. Meanwhile, the chair's massage function blocks out any lingering reminders of the preventive or cosmetic treatment to come. Those treatments tend to be over swiftly, in any event: whitening sessions take just one hour, and tools such as digital x-rays and a cavity-finding device make routine exams quicker and more accurate.
Even kids look forward to a trip to Dr. Hernandez's dental practice—he's so focused on making them feel at ease that he wrote a children's book about visiting the dentist. On the companion CD, Captain Oral and the Toothbugs sing original songs about dentistry, rather than familiar old tunes such as "The Bicuspid Is Connected to the Jawbone."
