Helmed by Nebraska natives Dr. Jim Becker and Dr. Dave Mlnarik, Shadow Ridge Dental’s mouth experts protect pearly whites with advanced dental technology and a gentle touch. During a one-hour appointment, a dental investigator inspects the caps and crevices of each chomper, screens for oral cancer and gum disease, and searches for signs of tooth decay. Four bitewing and panoramic x-rays help uncover mouth maladies that the naked eye can't uncover, since it's usually too embarrassed about its nudity to speak up. The adept hands of a hygienist will also work to remove tartar and plaque from cuisine crushers during a thorough dental cleaning and tooth polishing.
Shadow Ridge Dental
Like Batman and Batwoman, Dr. Dave Mlnarik and Dr. Paige Miller have an arch nemesis. Their Joker, however, is dental disease, which they combat through their shared practice, Shadow Ridge Dental. Thorough exams, their first line of defense, screen for oral cancer and gum disease, evaluate tooth decay, and assess existing dental work. The exams also complement regular cleanings, digital x-rays, and sealant, keeping patients’ teeth healthy more effectively than braces made of spinach.
Should disease strike, the dentists nip it in the bud with treatments ranging from root canals to tooth-colored fillings that blend seamlessly into smiles. They can also resolve more superficial issues, whitening teeth in-office and covering chips with veneers. A steady stream of continuing-education seminars lends each treatment a modern touch without forcing the doctor to administer dental work in the trunk of a hybrid.
