Our Office Renovations Are Now Complete

August 9th, 2015

We owe a big thank you to Jennifer Blaha of Theory Design Group, Bill Miller and his staff at Bill Miller Construction, and Max and his crew from Syntec Computers. They worked together to give us both a state-of-the-art look and an equally impressive computer system with wonderful digital capabilities.

Please stop by to see what they accomplished.

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!

Order Your Custom Mouthguard Today!

July 6th, 2015

What do the Cleveland Browns and Cleveland Cavaliers have in common? (It’s certainly not their won-loss records!).

Their similarity, at least from a dental perspective, is that the players on both teams wear mouth guards when they play.  Our office makes custom-fitting guards to protect our patients’ teeth whether the sport is football, basketball, hockey, lacrosse, or whatever suits your fancy. If  your child plays any of these sports, or any other that may require protection, please call us at 440-461-1003, and we’ll make sure they have a guard before their season starts.

By the way, these can be made in school colors, whether it’s Chagrin Falls, Shaker, Beachwood, Brush, South Euclid, or Orange, as well as in the colors of Hawken, University School, Hathaway Brown, or Laurel (and any other community or school!).

Time for Summer Check-Ups!

July 6th, 2015

We hope all our patients and friends had a wonderful July 4th holiday weekend!

With the summer activities in full swing (and the Cavaliers season over and the Indians still in the race), we want to remind everyone that you may want to reserve time for your checkups and exams! As a reminder, we do see lots of kids/children in our practice as well as adults, and the summer months are the perfect time for any type of dental treatment.

Please call Karin or Diane at 440-461-1003 to make your appointments!

Introducing the CariVu™

July 1st, 2015

In addition to digital X-rays and decay-detecting dye, we’re excited to announce that we’re now using the CariVu™ to help diagnose dental problems!

This major innovation by Dexis Dental allows us to shine a high-intensity light through teeth to help look for both decay and fractures – without using radiation. If you’d like to see it at work, please let our hygienists know and we’ll be glad to give you a demonstration. Learn more about the CariVu™ here >

We’re always looking to improve our equipment and skills, and one way we keep up is by regularly attending dental meetings and seminars. In the past few months, members of our team have traveled to San Francisco, Chautauqua,  New York, and locally here in Cleveland (at the Tri-C Corporate College) for dental education.

Moms and Dads – Take Care of Your Teeth!

May 18th, 2015

On our bi-monthly appearances on NBC/WKYC’s Golden Opportunities TV show, we are focusing on both Moms and Dads, on Mother’s Day and Father’s Day, respectively.

If you haven’t seen the shows, they can be accessed by clicking here. We received very positive feedback on both shows. If you or your family have any ideas on things they’d like to see and learn about, dentistry-wise (general or cosmetic), please let us know!

Innovations in Dentistry

May 18th, 2015

In May, our staff has taken a number of continuing education courses so that we can provide the most up-to-date services in the most personable manner. While most of the staff headed to the Cleveland Dental Society meeting, co-chaired by our own Deb Anderson, Dr. Marsh and Wendy attended the annual AACD (American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry) conference, where there are courses on the newest materials, like eMax and Zirconium for use in crowns and veneers, as well as exhibits on techniques and digital dentistry; they purchased a new type of decay-detecting light (the CariesVue), which can help detect decay without radiation.

When you are here, or if you want more information, let us know, and we’ll be glad to assist you and/or talk about the innovations.

Angie’s List Reviews – Part 3

May 15th, 2015

Cleveland cosmetic dentist Dr. Steven Marsh has been an Angie’s List affiliate for the past four years, receiving the Super Service Award every single year.

In addition to receiving the highest ratings in all categories, including Availability, Staff Friendliness, and Effectiveness of Treatment, some patients take it the extra mile and leave a glowing review. Here is a small sampling of them.

“Will Recommend His Service to Others”

I was looking for a new dentist and I saw him on the Golden Opportunities TV show. I was so impressed with his demeanor and the before and after pictures of his patients. I made an appointment with him 10 years ago and it has been smooth sailing since. While I did want some cosmetic work done initially, my teeth needed to be repaired with new crowns and this took several years, only because of my budget. However, at the end of December 2013, all the work is completed and I have a beautiful smile and just looks wonderful. I am so pleased and I get lots of compliments on my new smile makeover.

Dr. Marsh is very professional, makes his patients very comfortable and always explains what he is going to do so both he and the patient are on the same page. After I have had a procedure done in the office, he will call me later that evening just to make sure I am doing OK. I am so glad that I have continued with Dr. Marsh because my teeth just look so beautiful, I can’t stop smiling!

His office is state-of-the-art and he has a terrific office staff. I highly recommend Dr. Marsh. He is very talented, his work is first-rate and makes your smile look very natural. If you are looking for a general dentist or want some cosmetic dental work done, I highly recommend Dr. Marsh. You will not be disappointed!

He’s truly a fabulous dentist and one really nice guy!

“Takes Care of Everything”

Dr. Marsh has been my dentist for about 3-4 years. He’s good, he’s professional, he’s painless, he’s on time and he seems to be very knowledgeable. He gets you whatever he needs to have done and if he’s not the one to do it he sends you someone who does with recommendations. He takes care of everything.

“Reliable Expertise”

My teeth look great. He was professional, fast and efficient. He does not leave you waiting too long. He is friendly and knowledgeable. He is at the top of his profession and has been on local TV shows in Cleveland. He has a great reputation.
