We Became Grandparents for The Second Time!

January 25th, 2016

My wife Wendy – our office insurance expert -and I had a pretty exciting and eventful Fall. We became grandparents for the second time; our daughter Stephanie and her husband Jeff gave Owen a brother, Aiden.

They’re doing well and soon will be brushing Aiden’s baby teeth! Abby, our younger daughter, married Jake in Phoenix, Arizona in October, and now reside in Los Angeles. Abby works for NBC, writing and directing commercials for The Voice. Jake acts and does voice-over work.

We’re so happy for all of them and thank our patients for their good wishes!

Best Wishes for a Healthy New Year

January 6th, 2016

Best wishes for a healthy and happy New Year in 2016!  Whether you celebrated with Moet champagne or Cotton Club ginger ale, we hope you enjoyed your holiday.  Here at ClevelandSmiles, we look forward to the new year and have incorporated a number of new techniques and instrumentation to increase your quality of care and comfort.

In addition to redecorating our office in 2015, we have added a couple of digital dental instruments.  We have a new Cari-Vu to help detect decay and a new digital intraoral camera, both made by Dexis.  The Trios digital scanner promises to make impressions a breeze for our patients, while improving accuracy and time.

Most importantly, our staff remains intact.  We so appreciate Karin, Alysia, Amy, Traci, Debbie, Deb, Wendy, Shirley, and our fill-in hygienists Jill, Shelley, and Barbara.  They are all working on your behalf to make your visits as fruitful and enjoyable as they can be!

Five More Years! (At Least)

October 27th, 2015

We’ve had quite a month in the Marsh family!

Our daughter Stephanie and husband Jeff had their second son, Aiden, to go with our three-and-a-half-year-old grandson Owen. And after dating for nearly 10 years, our daughter Abby married Jake last week in Phoenix.

Both girls live in California – in San Diego and Los Angeles, respectively. But Mom and Dad (Wendy and I) are staying here in Cleveland; in fact, we just signed another five-year lease at our office here at Brainard Place, following our recent renovation.

Our builder Bill Miler worked with our decorator Jennifer to both update and beautify our space. We’re sure you’ll like it!

Violins of Hope – A Community Collaboration to Educate and Inspire

October 22nd, 2015

We’re proud of our patient Richard Bogomolny for putting together the “Violins of Hope” concert and benefit. Working with WVIZ/Ideastream, Case Western Reserve University, University Circle, the Maltz Museum, The Temple  and the Jewish Federation of Cleveland, the Cleveland Orchestra and their string section performed a concert using violins recovered from Holocaust prisoners and restored.

This Sunday production was featured on television throughout the greater Cleveland area and will be replayed throughout the year. Richard, who was formerly the president on the board of both the Cleveland Institute of Music and the Cleveland Orchestra, is known for his kindness and philanthropy, as well as his great smile!

We’re an amalgam-free office

August 7th, 2015

A recent article in the Wall Street Journal on amalgam/silver fillings received national attention. Here at Clevleand Smiles, we’re in our seventeenth year of being an amalgam-free office. When doing restorative work, we use both composites and porcelain, which are also natural looking and more conservative than silver fillings. Importantly, they are also much kinder to the environment, as there are no plastic capsules containing mercury residue tobe disposed of.

If you’d like more information, you can look for a YouTube video that we did a few years ago with WKYC’s Monica Robbins that also went viral—making the national NBC news and newspapers like the Cleveland Plain Dealer and USA Today!

Cleveland Smiles named “Top Dentist” again!

August 5th, 2015

We just got the news that our ClevelandSmiles office was named as a “Top Dentist” in Cleveland Magazine’s annual dental issue, which comes out in October; we were named in both the general dentistry and cosmetic  dentistry categories. Since the vote is made by our peers in the dental field, we are very proud to be included—as we have in every year since the ratings were compiled.

Cosmetic dentistry includes things like dental veneers, Lumineers, Zoom whitening, and bonding, while general dentistry includes both preventive and restorative dentistry.  Here in Cleveland and Northeast Ohio, our staff at Brainard Place works very hard to provide the best environment and care!
