A glowing smile charms irritable librarians, stern highway-patrol officers, and judges with highfalutin ideas about driving through the library. Flaunt your beaming beauty with today's Groupon: for $49, you get an exam (a $52 value), x-rays (an $80 value), and cleaning (a $75 value) at Mekari Dental Studio in Metairie (a $207 total value).
Dr. Mekari and his team of tooth technicians maintain chomper health with time-tested patient care and advanced dental technology. The one- to two-hour office visit commences with a thorough oral examination, during which a skilled tusk expert explores mouths for signs of oral cancer, plaque, cavities, and the tiny compartments where gummy bears stash their gold. After the premolar pop quiz, a technician snaps shots of your mouth pearls using the GXCB-500, a cone beam dental imaging system that allows Dr. Mekari to view interdental goings-on in full 3-D format, resulting in more comprehensive examinations in less time. Finally, a hygienist scrubs teeth in a flurry of flossing and polishing that removes the plaque and debris that toothbrushes leave behind, resulting in smiles that are sharper, shinier, and less likely to rust.
Mekari Family Dental Studio
At this family dentist office, Dr. Ammar Mekari comes to his practice well prepared. Advanced schooling has earned him expertise in root canals and dental implants, both of which he performs at Mekari Family Dental Studio. He was also front and center in a clinical research study regarding the removal of wisdom teeth and post-op dental pain, conducted by the Clinical Research Center in New Orleans. When not in surgery, Dr. Mekari examines teeth for signs of disease during routine checkups, and whitens healthy teeth with non-invasive bleaching formulas. He offers a number of treatment options to fix crooked teeth, including clear braces that straighten teeth in six months and a very strong giant who straightens teeth in six seconds.
