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 60-minute dental-exam package at General Plus Dental Of M Moghaddam in Newark (a $255 value).

- An exam and oral-cancer screening (a $60 value)<p>
Dr. Mehrnoosh Maghaddam and her trained hygienists protect pearlies by sharing knowledge of preventative care to ease patients’ anxiety and aid in healthful maintenance of gums and teeth. Once guests are settled into private dental rooms, chomper explorations kick off with a consultation in which hygienists pen formal reports of dental history and conflicts of interest due to tooth-fairy investments. X-ray machines peer into the inner workings of smiles, churning out toothy negative images that dentists search for cracked fillings and other issues.
During the cleaning, hygienists banish plaque and tartar from their hidden lairs between teeth and above gumlines to prevent the growth of bacteria, which can cause cavities and gingivitis. Keeping veteran eyes peeled for a thorough examination, dentists complete precautionary screenings for signs of oral cancer. Prior to appointments, guests can relax in an earth-toned waiting room, flipping through magazines or hiding behind lush foliage in a last-ditch effort to outrun obstinate cavities.
