George Washington once described firearms as “liberty’s teeth,” which made literal sense considering both his musket and dentures were fashioned from the same mahogany tree. Flash a more modern presidential smile with today’s Groupon: for $69, you get a full dental exam, cleaning, x-rays, and a teeth-whitening kit from T. Lance Collier, DMD, LLC (a $722 total value).
Dr. T. Lance Collier—who just recently opened the doors to his inviting new facility in Columbus—uses his friendly demeanor to set chompers at ease with tailored treatment plans and comprehensive dental services. In the comprehensive exam, Dr. Collier scans clients' mouths to determine potential problems and any museum artifacts they may have bitten (an $80 value). After a thorough surface touch-up and polishing (an $84 value), Dr. Collier takes panoramic (a $100 value) and bitewing (a $58 value) x-rays in an attempt to spot improper alignment, determine internal tooth health, and ensure ample decorative prints for upcoming Halloween parties. Sparkling teeth are then fitted for custom trays and send on their smiley way with a take-home Venus White Pro whitening kit (a $400 value), which works to eliminate stains and discoloration with a safe and reputedly effective bleaching process.
