Plano Dental Office Celebrates SMU's AAC Basketball Championship

PLANO, TX--(Marketwired - March 30, 2015) - The staff of 1st In Smiles recently celebrated Southern Methodist University's recent American Athletic Conference championship win and invitation to the NCAA Basketball Tournament.

1st In Smiles, a Plano cosmetic dentistry practice, provides dental services to the SMU men's basketball team and much of the coaching staff. This month, SMU won its first league title in 22 years against Tulsa. SMU went on to play in the NCAA Tournament but was eliminated by UCLA. Dr. Rick Barfield started 1st In Smiles after earning his dental degree from Baylor College of Dentistry. Dr. Barfield, a Richardson native, has been in practice for more than 20 years. He attended J.J. Pearce High School and then SMU for his undergraduate studies.

Dr. Barfield's children are enrolled at SMU and his Plano dental office has offered its dentistry services to the team for the past several years.

"It's amazing to be involved with such a talented group of student athletes and coaches," Dr. Barfield said. "We've been fortunate enough to see them as patients, but we also get to see their incredible achievements on the court."

1st In Smiles, 1300 Village Creek Drive, is a comprehensive dental practice that offers preventive care, restorative dentistry, cosmetic dentistry, pediatric dentistry, sedation dentistry, orthodontics, endodontics and implant dentistry.

1st In Smiles offers free exams and digital X-rays for new patients, as well as Sonicare electric toothbrushes. The practice also provides free second opinions, price matching and renders free nitrous oxide for anxious or fearful patients.

The Plano family dental office provides services such as root canals, dental implants and Invisalign that typical general family practices do not. By offering all dental services under one roof, 1st In Smiles can keep all treatment in-house and cut down on patients' appointment times and overall visits.

In addition to offering nitrous oxide, 1st In Smiles is certified to render safe and comfortable oral conscious sedation, which is prescribed in pill-form. This type of sedation can help patients who are fearful of the dentist -- or those who need extensive dental work. Using oral conscious sedation, Dr. Barfield can complete full-mouth restorations in one relaxing visit.  

As part of its cosmetic services, 1st In Smiles offers Teeth Whitening for Life. This program allows patients who receive one of 1st In Smiles' teeth-whitening treatments to then have free teeth-whitening for life if they maintain their regular cleanings and examinations.
