For more than 35 years, dentists at American Dental Centers have polished pearly whites and prevented dental disease with thorough exams. At each of the 14 locations that dot Northern and Central Ohio, patients walk in or schedule appointments so they don’t have to scrape off plaque using chew toys. The center maintains a 24-hour phone line so that patients can arrange to have emergencies treated as soon as possible, and it also offers a Forever White program, in which patients pay a one-time fee and then receive take-home bleaching treatments for as long as they attend their regular three- or six-month check-ups.
The checklist for pre-surgery sanitation at Premier Dental is meticulously scrutinized all the way down to the operatory water. A high-tech filtration system courses water through two filters to remove chemicals and particulates before an ultraviolet light disintegrates any lingering bacteria. To match, the tools are scoured by a high-tech sterilization system that surpasses OSHA requirements.
This highly detailed process represents Premier Dental’s head dentist, self-proclaimed perfectionist Dr. Rita Kutsikovich. Earning diplomate status through the International Congress of Oral Implantologists, Dr. Kutsikovich has the credentials and continuing education to support her passion for dentistry. Her specialty services include dental implants, crowns, bridges, and sedation dentistry, which can help patients to feel less anxious about procedures and make teeth sit still. She also performs general exams, cleans teeth, and seals them.
For 30 years, Dr. Harper and Dr. Gilmore have worked to fix up the smiles of their patients at their University Heights family dental practice. They skillfully perform basic cleanings and exams, fillings, crowns, bridges, root canals, and implants.
Calling on more than 40 years of experience, Beachwood native Dr. Daniel Glick and his staff of seasoned technicians polish teeth with general and cosmetic dental services. Families can flock to Dr. Glick's warm, welcoming office, which was designed for his patients' comfort, complete with window-facing chairs that allow patients to admire the green landscape or survey it for soon-to-spout flash mobs. There, they'll also find the latest treatments for everything from gum disease to temporomandibular joint disorder, as well as services tailored to treat dental issues specific to kids and athletes. Dr. Glick is so confident in the care provided by his office that he offers a warranty that covers any damaged sealant, composite filling, crown, or bridge so long as patients maintain their regular six-month checkups and avoid snacking on rocks.
At Chagrin Highlands Dental Group, Dr. Douglas Desatnik believes the best kind of dental work is the kind you don't see. That's why he repairs cavities using tooth-colored resins instead of traditional metal amalgams. He fixes damaged teeth using porcelain crowns and replaces missing teeth with dental implants—both of which look and function like the real thing. For straightening crooked smiles, Dr. Desatnik utilizes Invisalign, which uses clear liners to gradually nudge teeth into healthier positions while remaining largely unnoticeable, and Six Month Smiles, which uses clear brackets and tooth-colored wires to straighten teeth, sometimes in as little as 6 months.
Dentists oversee the operation at Gordon Dental Care: Drs. Peter G. Gordon and Ellen K. Friedman. Even better, each one brings something unique to the table, notably Dr. Gordon's master status from the International Congress of Oral Implantologists, Dr. Friedman's Invisalign certification, and both of their degrees at Case Western Reserve University. Together, the duo and its staff provide an array of dental services, including cleanings, implants, teeth whitenings, and crown procedures.
