A healthy, beautiful smile is more than skin deep.

That is why the dentists at myHealth Dentistry take a whole-body approach to dentistry, recognizing that dental health is part of overall good health practices. They emphasize preventive care including good nutrition and fitness. And they strive to educate and empower their patients to lead healthy lifestyles.

It is easy to see that the practice was developed with patients’ needs coming first and foremost. Conveniently located @ the Shops at Deerfield Square, this full-service, family practice, sees patients of all ages and covers a wide range of dental procedures, including everything from standard cleaning and fillings to root canals, implants, and more. They also offer pediatric dentistry so the whole family’s needs can be met at one location.

Dr. Michael Gilbert, one of the founding doctors along with Paul J. Chaiken, DDS, and Manal Ibrahim, DMD, says, “We treat our patients like family. We are looking out for their best interest. We really care about what they are looking for and come up with customized treatment plans.”

All of the doctors are very sensitive to the fact that many people may feel anxious about coming to the dentist, so it is their goal to make every visit as pain and anxiety-free as possible. They view it as their mission to educate patients about oral health care options and to help guide them to choose a treatment plan that is most suitable and appropriate for their needs.

“I think that we’re a great practice for the high anxiety patients,” Dr. Gilbert says. “The environment of our office is laid out with a very open floorplan and TVs that can keep you occupied
and distracted. We use scented essential oils that have some properties to help you relax and we also use nitrous oxide for adults as well as kids, which is another mechanism for us to relieve a little bit of anxiety. I also think that all of our doctors have very calming demeanors. We have created an environment that is very suitable for the anxious patient.”

The practice has many options for cosmetic dentistry. They use all available dental practices to give you the smile of your dreams. And they also do Zoom whitening, which is an in-office whitening system. Gilbert explains that this is preferable to taking home bleach trays which take a while to get the desired results. “When we do Zoom in office it takes a couple of hours and we get you to that whiteness level in a one-stop-shop, which a lot of people like. We also do cosmetics, in the area of veneers and crowns and things like that to really get patients back to that Hollywood smile.”
