It wasn’t a career as an astronaut or a professional baseball player that held Dr. Clark Larson’s heart as a 9-year-old. Rather, his childhood dream was to become a dentist. And with some hard work and a lot of education, he did just that. Dr. Larson spends his days at San Tan Valley Smiles restoring teeth to their original luster before they broke through the gums. He whitens teeth, removes decay during root canals, replaces lost teeth with dentures, and covers broken teeth with caps.

Seven days a week, Darque Tan's clients can bronze their bodies with the more than 20 tanning beds and spray-tan booths lining each of Darque Tan’s 100 salons across the US. Each location's tanners are kept highly sanitized, undergoing a 50-point cleaning inspection by a separate cleaning staff to ensure all of the tanning beds, both stand-up and lie-down, and UV-free Mystic Tan booths remain in tip-top tanning shape. Clients new to tanning or bronzing up for a special occasion can work on a personalized tanning game plan crafted by one of Darque Tan’s knowledgeable staffers, each of whom must pass a detailed training program before hitting the salon floor. Most Darque Tan salons also boast a Kid Zone, which provides a safe haven for youngsters to wait, watching TV shows, reading a book, or using their imagination to grow a tail and chase it.
Planet Beach is a futuristic relaxation station where state-of-the-art machines administer all services. Weary muscles can luxuriate in the completely dry hydro-massage bed as jets of water focus on pressure points along the spine and quietly sing sea chanteys to muscle knots until they succumb to the siren song of relaxation. The FDA-approved Luminous facial combines light therapy with topical spa products to tighten and clear skin, and oxygen therapy teams with aromatherapy to stimulate the body and calm the mind. Today's deal can also include a series of UV-free Mystic Spray tans, the airbrush application of which leads to a streak-free gold tone that attracts the eye of the swimmers and grizzled prospectors who populate the beach. The teeth-whitening treatment uses peroxide and premium-grade LED light to help lift tooth stains during 15-minute sessions.
All tanning salons want their clients to look their best, but Tangible Tanning wants them to feel their best as well. After enhancing physiques with spray tans or prolonging the life of their tans in hydration station pods, clients can tone and tighten in Zumba and boot camp classes. They can also augment their appearances with red light therapy sessions, which use UV-free lighting technology to boost collagen production and decrease signs of aging more effectively than writing the word "no" on each and every wrinkle.
