eAssist Honors Dr. J. Art Mirelez and his Teams with Top Practice Award
Fresno CA, July 2021 – Dr. J. Art Mirelez and his Teams (Mirelez Wellness Dental, Revitalize Dental Implant Center, OnCall Urgent Dental Care of Fresno and Hanford) are eAssist’s most recent recipients of the Top Practice Award. This honor is awarded each month to two exceptional eAssist clients who embody the values of integrity, expertise and grace, while providing exemplary patient care, running efficient operations, and giving back to their communities. Presented to the practice as a whole, the award recognizes the need for a cohesive unit to run a practice to the highest standards.
Born, raised and schooled in the Fresno area, Dr. J. Art Mirelez earned a Bachelor’s degree in Chemistry with Honors from Fresno State University. He received his DDS degree from the University of CA, San Francisco in 2002, followed by a General Practice Residency Program at Fresno’s University Medical Center, where he treated medically-compromised patients under general anesthesia. Dr. Mirelez went on to work for Healthy Smiles Mobile Dental Foundation, a local non-profit children’s dental organization.
He later attended the prominent Misch International Implant Institute Program, and acquired his Fellowship with the International Congress of Oral Implantologists, one of the highest international designations for skill in the surgery and restoration of dental implants. Dr. Mirelez earned his Fellowship in the Academy of General Dentistry (FAGD) in 2011 – prestigious recognition earned by only 5% of all dentists in the U.S.
Dr. Mirelez is also a graduate of the famed Kois Center in Seattle WA, an educational institute for elite dentists who choose Advanced Dentistry Through Science. He is one of only 300 graduates worldwide, one of only 82 honored with Clinical Instructor distinction, and is also a Kois Mentor. He continues to travel internationally in search of safe and advanced implant techniques, notably the renowned Ickert Dental Implant Centre of Canada; co-founded InstaRisa Technologies, an innovative implant technology company; and is a leader in sedation dentistry.
Fueled by his desire to be the best clinician possible through training and education for the benefit of his patients, today J. Art Mirelez, Jr., DDS, FICOI, FAGD has over 2,000 hours of continuing dental education completed, and maintains one of the most successful private dental practices in Fresno. He founded Mirelez Wellness Dental guided by the core values of faith, respect, honesty, excellence and balance. Having grown to a team nearly 15 strong, including Dr. Christopher R. Gates, the mission of the practice hasn’t changed: to provide exceptional dental care in a personalized and comfortable manner while exceeding patient expectations, developing relationships based on trust, and improving the quality of patients’ lives.
“We believe in providing holistic dentistry because it focuses not just on the patient’s oral health, but how their oral health interacts with their overall wellness. By providing good oral health, we improve how our patients feel so they can live a happier, healthier life,” explained Dr. Mirelez. “We also know that some people avoid going to the dentist because of anxiety. So we offer sedation dentistry as a means of easing that anxiety so they can receive dental care that will improve the standard of their oral health and health overall.” In addition, patients are offered myriad comforts and amenities to ensure each visit is “a pleasant, enjoyable and fun experience.” These include such things as head and knee pillows, comfy blankets, Bose headphones, TV/internet, stress balls, and a mini café.
At Mirelez Wellness they refuse to allow the insurance industry to dictate a patient’s health. They help ensure every patient has the choice to receive the highest level of care available by offering a wide variety of financing and payment options, as well as a membership program loaded with benefits for those without insurance coverage.
Taking this one step further, and as a way of giving back to the community, one day each month the office closes for a “Friends & Family Day” during which patients are treated at discounted rates, or at no charge at all. Dr Mirelez personally gives back even more by being a motivational speaker for local schools and universities, allowing students to intern at his office, and serving as the Official Dentist of the Fresno Futbol Club.
Mirelez Wellness Dental not only uses the most advanced technologies to provide treatment, they use technology as a convenience for their patients. Online consultations enable patients to submit questions and concerns, and even upload photos. In response, a member of the Mirelez team creates a complimentary personalized video with recommendations, and provides for online appointment scheduling.
In addition to Mirelez Wellness Dental, Dr. Mirelez and an exceptional team provide superior implant dental care through the Mirelez Revitalize Dental Implant Center in Clovis CA. While attending as a student at both institutes, Dr. Mirelez met Dr. Jeff Bynum – an esteemed Mentor and Clinical Instructor at the Kois Center, and a Clinical Instructor and Surgical Tutor at the Ickert Dental Implant Centre. They eventually brought their shared vision to life by opening the Revitalize Center. The team is uniquely qualified, and the state-of-the-art dental surgical facility and on-site lab are uniquely equipped, to provide patients with permanent dental implants – in one office, often in just one day.
Moreover, to meet the needs of those requiring emergency dental care, Dr. Mirelez also leads two urgent care offices: OnCall Dental Urgent Care in Fresno and Hanford. These offices are open 7 days a week and offer 24-hour urgent care to anyone in need of dental care – on an emergency walk-in basis, or by appointment.
Not surprisingly, Dr. Art Mirelez is Fresno’s most highly and positively reviewed dentist – a testament that he and his outstanding teams across four facilities are fulfilling their mission to exceed patients’ expectations and improve the quality of their lives.
