What could be worse than starting the day by losing a crown while flossing? Having it happen on a Saturday morning, of course. But if your regular dentist is unavailable and the thought of spending the entire weekend on a liquid diet isn’t very appetizing – never fear – The Dental Care Group is here to save the day. The Aventura office is actually open on Saturday, seeing patients even before 9 a.m.
When you’re beyond stressed out about having a missing crown, just about the only thing that could inspire a smile is arriving at The Dental Care Group’s conveniently located office on Northeast 207th Street across from the Promenade Shops. The friendly receptionist greets you with care and concern as you’re relieved to hear a professional dentist will soon be available to re-cement your crown – even though you’re a new patient and don’t have an appointment.
Although there are already many patients in the comfortable waiting area, each is quickly called in. Then, before you know it, you’re welcomed into the exam room area by a very friendly Dental Care team member like Gloria. She helps put you at ease and then takes an x-ray to detect any issues that may need to be attended to before adhering your crown.
Just a few minutes later, you meet the very pleasant Dr. Amanda Merikas, who informs you that she’ll easily be able to put your crown back in. Breathing a sigh of relief, you lean back in the chair and relax knowing you’ll soon be having a non-liquid lunch. However, the highly- skilled Dr. Merikas, expertly assisted by Gloria, completes the procedure so expediently, that by the time they’re finished, it’s actually too early for lunch.
It took less than an hour and now you have your crown back along with your composure. There’s even time to still get to the gym, where you just happen to often see Bonnie, who has been a hygienist at The Dental Care Group for over 30 years. Just as the staff attributes their longevity with the practice to the warm, family atmosphere created by founders including Dr. Rick Mars, generations of patients wouldn’t ever think of going elsewhere for their dental care. And why would they? The Dental Care Group is a general and multi-specialty group practice with an endodontist, periodontist, orthodontist and oral surgeon all under one roof. Dr. Mars added “We have always been a patient centered office. That is why we have early morning and evening hours in addition to Saturday hours. Dental Care Group Kids, our children’s practice, is the only children’s dental office in our area with Saturday hours. Parents do not have to miss work and children do not have to miss school when they come to our dental offices.”
People who have veneers or crowns know that you never know when one can pop off at an inopportune time. Thank goodness you can pop into The Dental Care Group – here to save the day so you can enjoy the rest of your Saturday with a very happy smile!
