"Fresh-baked cookies" and "arcade" aren't words typically associated with orthodontic care, but iDentity Orthodontics is an exception. While treatment rooms house 3D imaging and smile-straightening technologies, the Grayslake waiting room is stocked with fresh-brewed coffee and piping hot wifi signals, as well as arcade games and fresh-baked treats. And if these amenities aren't enough to put patients at ease, the knowledgeable care bestowed by Dr. Michael Stosich does. A certified orthodontist, Dr. Stosich doubles as a dental author and lecturer, and guides a skilled staff of capable tooth caretakers.
At the offices of Dental on 45, no detail pertaining to patient comfort has been overlooked. Distilled, bottled water hydrates guests in lieu of tap water to prevent potential contamination and a modern sterilization system further impedes the spread of germs. The greatest comfort, however, comes from the bedside manners of the two doctors, who use their many years of experience to strengthen smiles with porcelain veneers, full porcelain crowns, Invisalign braces, and an in-office power whitening system. Along with their general and cosmetic dentistry, the duo also treat conditions such as gum disease, implant dentistry, and root canal treatments, referring patients to dependable outside specialists as necessary.
The experts at Studio One Salon & Spa are prepared to perform nearly any beauty treatment. That's because they each commit to continuing education in the most modern techniques. In the salon, stylists don't just cut and color hair?they also manipulate texture with thermal straightening and keratin therapy, and deeply moisturize locks with steam infusions. The team takes a special interest in clients battling cancer, helping those with thinning hair with custom extensions and hairpieces, as well as co-hosting events with the St. Baldrick's Foundation and Hello Gorgeous!
Hair services are just a portion of the menu and of life. Elsewhere in the studio, aestheticians accentuate guests' features with lash extensions, makeup applications, and brow waxing, and cleanse skin with custom facials. Other pampering treatments, such as massages and mani-pedis, can be combined into spa packages for everyday indulgences or weddings.
Board-certified chiropractic physician Dr. Naveed Elahi takes a multidisciplinary approach to pain relief, disease prevention, and whole-body health at Health First Chiropractic Wellness Center. The practice specializes in chiropractic medicine, a science that aims to alleviate such common conditions as headaches and neck pain without the use of drugs, surgery, or noogies. In cases where traditional chiropractic medicine does not apply, the doctor rounds out the treatment menu with acupuncture and clinical massage therapy, two ancient modalities that can reduce anxiety and improve sleep. Furthermore, personal training and nutrition counseling help patients ward off the specter of disease in a more reliable manner than hanging garlic cloves on their treadmills.
