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 $35, you get a dental-exam package at Gentle Dental Inc in Sarasota, Ocala, Venice, Temple Terrace, or Bartow (a $237 total value).

- Panoramic x-ray (a $78 value)
- Cleaning (a $57 value)<p>
Gentle Dental’s mouth maestros draw on a combined 29 years of tooth attendance as they inspect teeth for potential problems and restore their ivory hue during a meticulous cleaning. After either Dr. John M. Borchers or Dr. Michael T. Mckee allow their expert eyes to explore smiles’ nooks and crevices during an exam, then snap a panoramic x-ray to investigate each tooth’s inner workings. Bitewing x-rays zero in on molars and check for budding cavities or teeth that are filled with tiny doubloons. During the cleaning, the doctor cleanses each tooth of plaque, then polishes it to restore its showroom gleam.
THE PATIENT AND ANY OTHER PERSON RESPONSIBLE FOR PAYMENT HAS A RIGHT TO REFUSE TO PAY, CANCEL PAYMENT, OR BE REIMBURSED FOR PAYMENT FOR ANY OTHER SERVICE, EXAMINATION, OR TREATMENT THAT IS PERFORMED AS A RESULT OF AND WITHIN 72 HOURS OF RESPONDING TO THE ADVERTISEMENT FOR THE FREE, DISCOUNTED FEE, OR REDUCED FEE SERVICE, EXAMINATION, OR TREATMENT.
With more than 29 years of combined experience, Drs. John M. Borchers and Michael T. Mckee care for teeth the way a kindergarten teacher cares for her class. Though they won’t teach incisors how to add or properly enunciate the pledge of allegiance, the doctors do ensure that each member of the group lives in harmony with its neighbor, maintains straight posture, and remains present and accounted for at all times. To accomplish this, Drs. Borchers and Mckee administer meticulous examinations that inspect each tooth for signs of decay and crookedness. And when teeth have gone missing altogether, dental implants can serve as permanent seat fillers, dutifully chewing on any urgently overdue homework.
