Meet Our Savannah Dentists
Dr. Brad Durham, DMD
Dr. Durham is a pioneering Savannah dentist who has developed a comprehensive approach to dentistry that has been imitated but never duplicated by dentists around the world. He has been the first to utilize and promote many new materials, technologies, and techniques. As an instructor at the Las Vegas Institute for Advanced Dental Studies (LVI) and his own Niche Practice Seminars, he has helped spread his innovative approach to dentistry across the country and around the world. Though he is known as a teacher, he is also a student who believes you should never stop learning. In recognition of his expansive studies in dentistry, he was awarded the first ever LVI Mastership.
Dr. Rod Strickland, DDS
Dr. Strickland began his accelerated approach to dentistry early, since he was granted early acceptance into dental school after only three years of undergraduate study. Dr. Strickland sees his ability as a quick study as an opportunity to learn more, and he has never stopped learning, with advanced dental education at LVI. He is also the inventor of the Denture Fountain of Youth®, and he continues to teach this innovative denture procedure to dentists from around the world. As a world-renowned teacher and dental innovator, he was drawn to become a Savannah dentist at The Durham Office by the opportunity to pursue ever-higher standards in dentistry.
Dr. Ryan Reeves, DDS
As a celebrated LVI Fellow, Dr. Reeves left his father’s dental practice and became a Savannah dentist because he believed in the mission of providing Beyond Exceptional Dentistry at The Durham Office. His studies include a wide range of aesthetic treatments, such as veneers and Invisalign. He is currently working to complete the Occlusal Connections residency in neuromuscular dentistry, which supplements his training in migraine relief and TMJ treatment. He is also trained in sedation dentistry, which he uses to help patients overcome dental anxiety so they can achieve and maintain the smile of their dreams without fear.
How to Choose a Dentist
If you are looking for a dentist, you have to make your choice carefully. After all, nothing will make more of a difference in your results than your choice of dentist. Taking the time and effort to make a proper choice will give you years of benefits in terms of a more attractive, more comfortable, and longer-lasting smile makeover.
Start by asking for referrals. If you know friends, family, or acquaintances who have had smile makeovers, ask them who did their work and whether they would recommend their dentist. If you have a good relationship with your general dentist and feel they would give you an honest recommendation, ask them for recommendations.
Next, go online. Take your recommendations and search for dentists in the area. Evaluate dentists on the basis of their websites, but avoid being swayed by an attractive design or fancy features. Instead, look for information about dentists’:
- Training–especially ongoing education in cosmetic dentistry
- Experience–make sure this is experience performing dentistry
- Results–look at before and after images, but be aware that some dentists’ high-profile cases may not be online because of privacy concerns
- Services offered, including sedation dentistry if you are anxious about dental procedures and neuromuscular dentistry, which can help you get cosmetic dentistry that is also in harmony with your bite
Select a minimum of three dentists you want to meet with.
When meeting with dentists, talk to them about what you want to achieve and listen to their recommendations. Make sure they were listening and their recommendations fit what you want. Talk to them about their qualifications and make sure they’re consistent with the website. Make sure you feel comfortable working with the dentist and trust them to give you good results. Ask to see additional before and after pictures of cases like yours.
After visiting with these dentists, choose one that gives you full confidence that you will be in good hands to receive great results. If none of the dentists gives you that confidence, keep looking. Your smile is too important to trust to anyone you don’t have full confidence in.
