Dr. Mike Kesner has always had a knack for working with his hands. As a boy, he constantly built model vehicles. In college, his plans to become a medical doctor shifted to dentistry because it held more opportunity for the hands-on manipulation of small instruments and precision parts. In 1984, he established Made Ya Smile Dental, a place where he carefully extracts wisdom teeth, fills in spaces between teeth, and installs implants into the jawbone to replace a missing tooth. He also specializes in Lumineers, and his practice?s ten locations together make up the number one Lumineers provider in the world.
Although he and his team of dentists work in separate locations, each of their offices share a similar design and set of amenities. Visitors at any of the ten locations marvel at the reception areas? coffeehouse ambiance as they sit at a caf? table, sip coffee, and work on the movie script for Vampires vs. Martians: The Reddest Dawn. In the treatment rooms, patients drift off while listening to music on the provided headphones. Anxious patients relax with nitrous oxide or the sounds of the rainforest simulated by the staff.
Dr. Cimino, a Dawson Academy trained dentist, straightens serrations with Invisalign treatments tailored to each client?s specific needs. Invisalign straightens crooked chompers with a combination of highly advanced 3-D computer graphics and the spells of old-fashioned orthodontia. The Invisalign process eschews cumbersome braces for clear, removable aligners that are virtually invisible to the unclothed eye. An initial exam, including x-rays, photos, a thorough cleaning, and impressions of your mouth terrain, paves the way for a flurry of calibrated teeth sheaths that are designed to slowly shift walnut crackers into perfect alignment. Patients return to Modern Aesthetics for routine checkups that ensure teeth continue to settle into their new positions. View some Invisalign FAQs here.
Over the course of more than 25 years in business, GMS Dental Centers have established the kind of long-term relationships with patients that allow an office to thrive. The company employs many licensed dentists, hygienists, and dental specialists, as well as a former IRS agent who gets paid in people not yelling at him. Each location treats kids and adults to cosmetic, preventative, and procedural care, and dental teams also perform ultra-modern services such as Zoom! whitening, straightening with Invisalign, and installing quarter-inch HDTVs in incisors.
Clear Choice Orthodontic Associates's founder Dr. Ray McLendon possesses just about the highest pedigree one could seek in an Invisalign provider. He worked as the vice president of Align Technologies, the company that developed Invisalign braces. Today, he's back to working with patients, conducting exams with x-rays and providing advice on what type of braces would best suit each client, whether its traditional metal braces or Invisalign retainers to match invisible teeth.
Dr. David Chiu and his team of smile renovators at Anchor Dental keep mouths neat and tidy with a suite of dental procedures. In the comprehensive exam, hygienists give pearly whites a once-over, sleuthing for plaque-ridden molars, camouflaged cavities, and any signs of oral cancer. Next, a cleaning attacks tartar and squatting bands of Sour Patch Kids. A full-mouth x-ray searches for hidden decay and mislaid wisdom teeth and a periodontal health screening checks teeth?s gummy garden beds for signs of gingivitis. Groupon patients with gum problems also receive a 50% discount on a full periodontal cleaning, including scaling and root planing.
Five dentists work together to improve oral health at Just Dental, which is open on weekends at their Katy location. Dr. Pam Wang, a general dentist interested in orthodontics, oversees general-dentistry services with Dr. Joyce Le, including checkups and cleanings; periodontist Dr. Miles Mason takes care of procedures such as bone and gum grafting and implant placement; Dr. Rosie Tran is the practices kid's dentist; and general dentist Dr. Kim Le rounds out the staff. Helping matters, the dentists have access to digital x-ray machines, intraoral cameras, and other high-tech dental tools that will impress your tooth fairy. In an effort to ensure that the quality of care here remains high, the practice's website has an online survey for patients.
