Hotspots Magazine: What is your medical background?

Dr. Dawn Polasky: I grew up in Plantation, Florida. I went to The Ohio State University for undergrad and graduated from Case Western Reserve School of Dentistry in 2003. After finishing Dental School, I completed a full year clinical concentration program focusing on restoring dental implants.

Tell us about your dentistry?

We focus on General and Cosmetic Dentistry, general health, ceramic crowns, veneers, tooth colored restorations, Invisalign, implant restorations, partials and dentures. We offer whitening options from take-home trays as well as in-office whitening.

Tell us about your staff?

We have a very friendly and knowledgeable staff. We have a hygienist here on Wednesdays and Thursdays.

What are some of the latest innovations in dentistry?

Great advances in dentistry are the use of dental implants which can replace a single tooth or can be used as a fixed crown and bridge. Also dental implants can be used for implant-supported dentures. Implant-supported dentures are the only treatment that helps to prevent bone loss, helps to preserve your appearance, and gives you strong and stable protection against the slipping and chattering of traditional dentures.

Do you take insurance?

We take many insurances and we see children.

How do you handle patients who have a fear of going to the dentist?

With my patience and understanding. We also have nitrous oxide available for certain procedures.

If you had one piece of advice to offer people about their teeth, what would it be?

I always say a pretty smile is much more than aesthetics. It increases a person’s self-esteem and confidence, and encourages people to feel more positive and successful in their lives. Most important of all, clean, healthy teeth and gums are a crucial part of one’s overall health.
