Protect Your Teeth: Custom-Made & Fitted Mouthguards

May 9th, 2016

If you’d like to have a custom-made and fitting mouthguard for yourself or your kids or grandkids, please call us so that we might help.

They can be fabricated in their school colors and can help protect them in sports  or even for working out, when many people clench their teeth.  Their most valuable when wearing them, rather than chewing on them a la Steph Curry or LeBron James.

(The prominence of the Golden State Warriors and the Cleveland Cavaliers has helped put mouthguards in the spotlight!)

Our Trios Digital Imaging System Provides More Comfort

May 2nd, 2016

We’re now using the Trios digital imaging system to take multiple impressions on our patients.  This is in addition to the Itero system we’ve been using for the past seven years.  It is truly state-of-the-art dentistry and allows us to be more accurate, as well as providing more comfort to our patients.

The response of our patients has been wonderful, as they are truly amazed at the technology. It can be used for veneers, crowns, and even partials.

We’d also be glad to demonstrate it’s use when you come to visit us.

Watch a short demonstration of the Trios digital imaging system.


Continuing Education Keeps Our Team Above the Rest

April 25th, 2016

Speaking of the team approach and being prepared, our team here at ClevelandSmiles recently spent a few days doing Continuing Education. The first day was “focused” on taking photos in the dental environment, from portraits to close-ups of the teeth.

Other days we not only learned but also helped other dentists and their teams become more proficient at doing porcelain veneers and crowns; at the Dental Ceramics laboratory in Richfield, we assisted nationally-know practitioner Dr. Rhys Spooor in teaching techniques to offices throughout the United States.

This is something we do on a yearly basis and allows us to communicate with others and expand their knowledge of various dental techniques. It is extremely gratifying for all of us!

A Winning Team Makes Everyone Smile

April 19th, 2016

The baseball season has begun, and we’re excited to be Cleveland Indians fans!  And while we’re speaking of sports, we’re “all-in” on the Cavs!  In both cases, it takes a well-coordinated and dedicated  team to win.

Here at ClevelandSmiles, we have that team, and we spoke about it recently on “Golden Opportunities.”  Each day we start at 7:00am with a team meeting, where we huddle and discuss the day’s patients, reviewing their medical history and dental care; we also review the previous day and look forward to the rest of the week.

In this way, we insure that our patients receive the treatment they need and want, by having all of our team on the same page.

Watch the clip from “Golden Opportunities” below:

We wish all of our teams the best of luck and promise that like them, our dental staff will do all we can to make your visits as pleasurable as possible!

Vote for Dental Hygiene!

April 4th, 2016

It’s Presidential primary time, and regardless of the candidates the Democrats and Republicans nominate, regular dental care “Trumps” neglect every time.

We want to remind you that most patients should be seen every four to six months for their exams and hygiene/oral cancer checks. Amy and Debbie can use their “Sanders” and polishers so that you can “Cruz” through your appointments!

Easy Dental Impressions with Our New Trios 3D Imager

March 28th, 2016

We’ve got the new Trios 3D imager for taking impressions, in addition to the Itero imaging system we got seven years ago. They’re both unbelievably accurate and patient-friendly. These digital systems are also environmentally friendly, as they don’t involve impression material, plastic trays, or metal dies, all which get thrown away after their use.
These cad-cam systems are revolutionizing the way dentistry is done and is a win-win for both our patients and our team.

Watch a demonstration video of the Trios 3D imager below.

Spring Is Perfect for Cleaning

March 21st, 2016

Spring is finally on the way. It’s the start of baseball season, and “hope springs eternal” for our own Cleveland Indians. This time of year also reminds us of “spring cleaning.” Though the saying refers to freshening up your home, our hygienists Amy and Debbie want to remind you that it can also refer to getting your teeth examined and cleaned.

They’re both excited to show you some of their latest techniques in getting your teeth polished and shiny.

You can call Karin and Alysia at 1-440-461-1003 to set up your appointment!

Golden Opportunities: The Oscar-Worthy Smile

The show and our bi-monthly dental segments can also be found here on YouTube ; each one is archived for our patients and the general public.
