The Super Dentists’ Dr. Kami Hoss and Dr. Nazli Keri, also known as their alter-egos Dr. Have One Super Smile and The Tooth Keri, respectively, are transforming the dental experience for children and adults. The Super Dentists provides a unique patient experience through original movies, music, and fun superhero and villain characters. The offices look like theme parks and feature video games, a dress-up area, and even a special door for children. “We’ve taken something that is typically feared and created an environment where kids beg to visit and don’t want to leave,” said Dr. Kami Hoss, Co-Founder of The Super Dentists. “Because we know that if kids like going to the dentist, they will go to the dentist and will take care of their mouths.”
The Super Dentists experience begins before patients even step foot through the door with the practice’s innovative augmented reality app. Parents receive a link to the augmented reality welcome video and watch it with their children so they know what to expect. They are also introduced to The Super Dentists characters: Dr. Have One Super Smile, The Tooth Keri, MeloD, Cavitar, and Molar. “The app is fun and interactive,” said Dr. Kami Hoss. “Kids can take their picture with the characters to become part of the experience, then share photos and videos with their parents and friends via text or social media.”
Though pediatric dentistry is the core service at The Super Dentists, the practice also offers dentistry for parents and orthodontics for the whole family – and it can be fun, too! “We’ve changed everything adults hate about going to the dentist,” Dr. Kami Hoss said.
The Super Dentists are very active in the community, especially with causes related to children and education. They regularly participate in speaking engagements and career fairs at local schools, and host on-site job shadowing opportunities, wellness fairs, and mouth guard fitting clinics. They also provide free dental care on Free Dental Day every year, and pay kids for their leftover Halloween candy that’s then donated to military troops overseas through their Candy Buy Back program.
“We love seeing the reaction of children and parents when they come to see The Super Dentists and interact with all of our services and amenities,” Dr. Kami Hoss said. “We know how important oral health is to your overall health, and we are honored to be making a big difference in peoples’ lives and futures.”
