Your teeth are your mouth’s ambassadors, your ticket to nachos, and the only things keeping your tongue in your head. Toughen your nacho ticket with today’s Groupon: for $12, you get a complete oral exam, x-rays, and teeth cleaning (a $139 value) at Smile Fitness Dental Centers’ North 75th Avenue location in Phoenix or Union Hills Drive location in Glendale.
A quick exam and x-rays may not seem like a critical element in the panoply of fitness, but appearances can often be visual. By improving mouth health, you can improve overall health; research suggests a link between periodontal diseases and other chronic conditions, including diabetes, cardiovascular disease, and Alzheimer’s. A cleaning might not cure brain fever or hammer toes, but broken fillings and cavities can’t hide from the prying eyes of the x-ray machine. If you lie in bed at night fearing the piercing pain of a future cavity, let one of Smile Fitness’s dental dynamos make preventive magic. Smile’s flouride treatments and dental sealants can help strengthen and protect your poor, defenseless enamel mouth-villagers, and oral exams can help uncover chronic problems such as teeth grinding and sleep apnea, conditions that Smile can also help treat with custom-made appliances (not included in today’s Groupon).

Smile Fitness Dental Centers
Before founding Smile Fitness Dental Centers in 1987, Dr. Douglas M. Gordon tended to the teeth of the troops while working in the United States Air Force for six years. There, he earned the Air Force Commendation Medal for Meritorious Service, the first dentist in the 2nd Air Force Division to receive this award.
Now, he splits his time between Smile Fitness's Peoria and Phoenix locations, where he performs a variety of general dentistry and cosmetic services. He and his team of dentists replace missing teeth with implants, tend to kids' chompers, and craft night guards for those who grind their teeth at night or sleep-box. They also beautify teeth with wafer-thin veneers and perform smile makeovers.
