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 $49, you get a dental package at Fox Valley Dental, located in Neenah (a $342 value). The dental package includes:
- A new-patient exam (an $84 value)
- Teeth cleaning (an $88 value)
- X-rays (a $170 value)
With more than 31 years of dental experience and up-to-date equipment, Dr. Robert Hering and his friendly staff at Fox Valley Dental maintain oral health. During the exam, Dr. Hering peruses mouth bones in search of cavities, oral cancers, and sentient gummy bears. Next, a hygienist sloughs mouths clean in a flurry of foam, clearing gum lines of tartar and polishing enamel. A set of bitewing and panoramic x-rays employs an electronic sensor that exposes any cysts or tumors invisible to the naked eye or half-naked elbow while reducing radiation by up to 90%.
Fox Valley Dental’s naturalistic space, laden with wood fixtures and broad windows, proffers abundant natural light and views of trees. Patients undergoing treatment can admire the wall-hung art or stare out the window at the surrounding shrubs while pondering which Civil War general’s beard would make the most decorative topiary.
Fox Valley Dental
A specialist in jaw orthopedics and orthodontics, Dr. Robert Hering founded Fox Valley Dental on the quest for sturdy jaws and straight bites. Since 1975, he has corrected maxillofacial flaws through more than 600 TMJ cases and 4,000 orthodontics cases, working both with traditional braces and Invisalign aligners. For those plagued by sleep apnea, he helps clear breathing pathways with mouthpieces that are easy to hide in a spouse's sandwich.
Dr. Hering’s office design betrays his fondness for the outdoors. Row upon row of windows throw the waiting room open to natural light, which falls upon rustic wooden fixtures. The operatory's French doors look out over a lawn enclosed in shrubbery, where woodland creatures find privacy to pick bits of acorn from their braces.
