Humans developed smiles as a way to deflect predators in the wild and former bosses in the grocery store. Protect yourself with today’s Groupon: for $45, you get a dental package at Glacier Dental in Oshkosh (up to a $355 total value). The package includes the following:
- A new-patient exam (an $89 value)
- Panoramic x-rays (a $120 value)
- Bitewing x-rays (a $61 value)
- A professional cleaning (an $85 value)<p>
A team of smile savers helmed by Dr. Wyn Steckbauer protects and polishes mouth bones with preventive and cosmetic dental services. The initial comprehensive exam inspects teeth for signs of oral cancer, gum disease, and pixie-dust graffiti left behind by delinquent tooth fairies. A course of digital x-rays complements the firsthand examination, revealing tooth decay and growth abnormalities hidden from the naked eye. Tartar and plaque finally submit to the scrubbing powers of a professional cleaning customized to account for each patient’s comfort and oral health. Medicated gels and prescription mouth rinses may be used to treat specific problems, and hygienists hold bars of soap at the ready if mouths show signs of spewing dirty words. Flat-screen TVs line the treatment rooms, making jaws drop with soap operas and action films and thus facilitating the dentist’s work. Inside the waiting room, a Keurig coffee station crafts individual cups of coffee, tea, and hot chocolate to soothe patients’ nerves.
Though Glacier Dental sometimes features a discounted price online, this Groupon still offers the best deal available.
