Midwest Oral Health's dentists, Drs. Shirley Ferreira and Dean Stratman, bring their unique specialties together to offer a more robust range of services at their practice. Dr. Stratman, for instance, specializes in oral implants and is a Fellow of the International College of Oral Implantologists, a rather elite club with only three Indianapolis members. Dr. Ferreira is particularly adept at creating smile makeovers with porcelain veneers, and she never bonds them to teeth until the patient is completely satisfied with how they look.
To help put their patients at ease, their lobby—or hospitality bar, as they call it—has beverages, snacks, and even computers with free Internet access. Every treatment chair features a 60-inch television suspended above, which calms patients with the relaxing beach scene it displays. Midwest Oral Health also offers sedation dentistry for implant procedures so patients can take a brief nap and wake up with their teeth repaired.
The teeth-whitening professionals at DazzlingWhiteSmileUSA believe that a brighter smile is a gateway to success, and they help clients achieve this goal with a variety of effective whitening products. Their premium take-home kit, for example, harnesses professional-grade peroxide gels and LED lights to accelerate the whitening process while causing little to no sensitivity. It also brightens teeth up to 12 shades in the process. Alternatively, they enhance smiles with Forever White teeth-whitening pens or WhiteICE freshening sticks ideal for touch-ups or on-the-go whitening. The convenient design dispenses whitening gel directly onto teeth without the need for refrigeration or lights.
DazzlingWhiteSmileUSA also offers remineralization gels, which reduce tooth sensitivity and strengthen enamel by replenishing important minerals. All items are kept in a compact blue carrying case for easy transport and storage.

Staff members working for Dr. Jerrold Goldsmith, DDS strive for a professional, yet relaxed atmosphere in order to hopefully ease the anxiety some people tend to feel when visiting a dentist’s office. Large, wall-mounted close-up color pictures of smiling men, women and children greet guests as they make their way to the second-floor office suite for services that include lumineers and veneers, teeth whitening and dental implants, dentures and partial dentures and general dentistry. Dr. Jerrold Goldsmith, DDS is located in the second of two cream-colored buildings along northbound Shortridge Road. Plentiful parking can be found near the south side entrance, which is marked by a green awning.
Using all-natural gels and fully customized tooth trays, Pro Smile Teeth Whitening brings professional-caliber dental treatments to homes across the country. After molding the kit to their own teeth—a process that takes just over a minute—customers fill the tray with gel and start their smile-brightening journey. Enhanced with an optional LED treatment, the whole procedure takes about 30 to 60 minutes a day for 7 to 14 days, and results last up to six months with regular brushing. The trays retain their shape permanently, so unless customers lose them or sprout a set of tusks, they can repeat the whitening process as often as necessary by ordering gel refills.
A graduate of the Indiana University School of Dentistry, Dr. John W. Bailey Jr. presides over a practice that helps patients through every type of dental ailment. Along with his small staff, he handles everything from basic cleanings to complex cosmetic procedures and attempts to make it look like you didn’t chew through the power cords of the town Christmas tree. Dr. Bailey is particularly adept at helping those who struggle with anxiety surrounding their visit. He uses a combination of conscious sedation and patience, which he has cultivated while raising his six children and handling various dental emergencies.
