From teeth whitening to smile makeovers, Dr. Robert Strain is committed to adding life to smiles and adding smiles to patients’ lives. “I am passionate about creating change in people’s lives by transforming their smiles,” says Dr. Strain. “Our focus is on designing a look that fits the personality, lifestyle, and goals of the patient, whether they desire a natural look or a brilliant ‘Hollywood’ smile.”
It’s no surprise then that Dr. Strain counts among his patients a roster of well-known sports personalities, models, and actors. Whether you are getting ready for a walk down the red carpet or just want to look and feel the part, Dr. Strain can help you achieve the smile you’ve always wanted, using the most advanced techniques available, including porcelain veneers, all-ceramic crowns, implant dentistry, and cosmetic dentures. “Today’s technology allows us to completely transform smiles in three days or less,” Dr. Strain says. “With new whitening techniques and state-of-the-art ceramics, we can offer patients a whole new look, with virtually no pain or downtime. Gifted in the art of dentistry, Dr. Strain is devoted to increasing his mastery of this field in order to offer the most effective and distinctive, comprehensive dental care available. His caring and friendly manner puts patients immediately at ease. With expert diagnosis, patients requiring comprehensive care may choose from twovisit makeovers or staged treatment plans that accommodate individual time and budget constraints.
Modern comforts and digital technology
When you walk into Studio Dentistry, you will immediately feel the difference. The tranquil, friendly atmosphere has comforts and features you might expect at an upscale spa. An HDTV and an artful, soothing waterfall welcome new arrivals. Dozens of “winning smile” photos grace the walls. A tour of the treatment area reveals massaging dental chairs, alldigital technology, and a variety of music selections offered on headphones. Another unique feature of Studio Dentistry is its own in-house photography studio. Photography isn’t just my hobby,” explains Dr. Strain. “It is indispensable in diagnosis, treatment planning, laboratory communication, and also for previewing possibilities with patients.” For patients who remain fearful about dental procedures, Dr. Strain provides a comforting chairside manner and a gentle hand. And for those who desire it, conscious sedation is also available.
Comprehensive care experience you can trust
Studio Dentistry provides a full spectrum of dental services and procedures, including a selection of veneers such as Lumineers, DuraThin, MAC, da Vinci, Finesse, Empress, and Creation Veneers. Dr. Strain is also skilled in all aspects of oral rehabilitation, dental implant restorations, invisible braces, bonded fillings, cosmetic dentures, deep cleanings, bite guards, and anti-snoring devices.
In a rapidly changing field like dentistry, it is important to find a dentist with a level of experience and skill you can trust. Dr. Strain has had the privilege of training with some of the top names in his profession. He has studied with Willi Geller, widely recognized as the leading dental ceramist in the world. He is a member of the Spear Education Faculty Club. And while Dr. Strain has built a highly successful practice in the valley, he is never content to rest on his laurels. He annually completes more than 75 hours of continuing education to maintain his position at the forefront of his field.
Dr. Strain and his handpicked staff are committed to patient education and individualized care, spending an ample amount of time listening to each patient’s concerns. “Open communication helps build trust, and we work very hard to ensure that our care is deserving of our patients’ confidence,” he says.
A center for oral systemic health
Dental health and general health are closely connected for many patients. For example, arteriosclerosis, diabetes, sleep disorders, GERD, dementia, and migraine headaches may be related to dental issues. Dr. Strain will consult directly with your physician whenever a connection is suspected.
Dr. Strain is an Accreditation Candidate with the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry and a member of the Academy of Dental Sleep Medicine and the American Dental Association. He is author of “Add Life to Your Smile, A Consumer’s Guide to More Smile with Less Dentistry.”
