Hailing from a family with six dentists, Dr. Raihan Nazir decided to embrace this calling. He founded a practice dedicated to providing comprehensive dental care while using technological advancements as well as empathetic compassion to help put patients at ease. The practice features three dental laser systems?which can be used to sculpt gum lines, perform root canals, treat cold sores, or vaporize stray scraps of spinach?while minimizing discomfort. Intra-oral cameras and digital x-rays allow Dr. Nazir and his staff to more effectively diagnose conditions, and the practice's in-house CEREC milling machine simplifies the process of affixing a crown or veneer by making the tooth restoration on a patient's first visit.

Those in need of focused pressure can try a deep-tissue massage, during which therapists use slow, concentrated pressure to bring relief from chronic pain, immobility, spasms, or involuntary jitterbugging.
