Pinecrest has a new addition and it’s one to smile about. Dr. John Addison has joined Dr. Mark Fisher, an esteemed dentist who has served Pinecrest for over 35 years, to create Fisher & Addison Dental. Dr. Addison is a native of Chicago whose wife was born and raised in Miami. In September, Dr. Addison and his family moved from Tampa to grow his dental practice in Pinecrest, a community they know and love. Dr. Addison is a skilled and passionate clinician who looks beyond the mouth and focuses on the overall health of the patient. He performs all aspects of general dentistry, including cosmetic dentistry, implants, root canals, extractions, Invisalign® and whitening. There are several things that set Dr. Addison and Fisher & Addison Dental apart from the many other dental practices in the area. First, is their in-house dental lab, Artedent, which allows Dr. Addison to work directly with the patient and the lab technician to create beautiful aesthetic dentistry in a fraction of the time. Having the lab tech in the office means they can ensure perfect looking and perfect feeling results. Second is their state-of-the-art technology. The office uses digital x-rays which reduce radiation exposure, DentalVibe® for pain-free dental injections (which patients rave about!) and only the highest quality equipment and materials. What really makes this office special is the doctor and staff. They know patients by name and create a dental home where patients feel like family. They call their waiting room a “reception area” because nobody “waits” at this office and offer fresh-baked chocolate chip cookies, coffee, tea and water to patients upon arrival. During dental visits, patients can listen to music or watch movies on wireless headphones while having paraffin hand wax treatments. Makes you wonder if you’re at the dentist or the spa. When we ask patients why they entrust their oral health to Fisher &Addison Dental, they tell us it’s because of the amazing level of care they receive. They mention how surprised they were when Dr. Addison personally called them on a Saturday morning to check how they were feeling after a dental procedure they had done on a Thursday or how they called the “emergency line” at 11pm on a Sunday only to have Dr. Addison answer right away and spend fifteen minutes really listening to them and caring for them. It’s likely that you’ve already met Dr. Addison as he’s quickly becoming an active part of the Pinecrest community, speaking at local schools, donating services to fundraising efforts, creating office teams to run charity 5k’s, and even purchasing a smARTy Dog (the new office pet!) at the Fashion in the Garden Event benefitting Pinecrest schools.
