Dr. Ron Kolodziej (or Dr. K, as his patients call him) specializes in cosmetic dentistry that's family friendly, working hand-in-hand with his attentive office staff to clean, straighten, and whiten teeth. In addition to regular check-ups and in-office whitening treatments, Dr. K helps guide and support patients through long-term dental health procedures, including working through ever-popular Invisalign treatments and teaching people to say goodbye to childhood tooth fairies.
The multilingual staff at Dental Technology Center and 64 Highland Dental nurture healthy smiles and strong bites. To ensure a pleasant experience for their patients, they fill their exam rooms with comfortable chairs, cable TV, and relaxing music, which set the stage for meticulous cleanings. During visits, staffers give the heave-ho to any tartar and plaque buildup, clearing the way for future generations of inevitable meal remnants. You'll leave with a smile bright enough to melt hearts, including your own, so be careful around mirrors.
As a family physician, Dr. Zainab Nawab advocates preventive medicine, but she also recognizes that aging is the one condition no amount of treatment can prevent. That's why, in her role at Vitalize MD, she oversees services designed to offset the effects of aging, such as wrinkles and sagging skin. Her methods are decidedly high-tech: when she's not tightening the skin with 3DEEP radio-frequency treatments, she's erasing fine lines with the Fraxel system's microscopic lasers and injectables such as Botox and Dysport. Even the products the center uses during its five facials—and sells to clients—have a medical bent, from the clinically tested SkinMedica line of cleansers to Jane Iredale's dermatologist-endorsed mineral makeup.
Comfort isn't usually the first thing that comes to mind when thinking of the dentist, but Elite Dental Care’s leather dental chairs, equipped with heat and massage functions, aim to change that. This commitment to comfort and quality of service appears not only in the seating, but also throughout the practice—distilled water, used in place of tap water, reduces the risk of contamination, and the digital x-ray system releases 90% less radiation than traditional x-rays and has only a 17.23% chance of giving someone superhuman strength.
True its name, Lakeside Family Dental serves the oral-health needs of everyone in the family. The office's dental professionals handle everything from routine cleanings to dental emergencies, and offer powerful in-office whitening with the Zoom! chair-side system. Lakeside keeps its doors open on Mondays and Thursdays until 7 p.m., making it convenient for patients who have to work standard office hours and those who absolutely refuse to miss an episode of Wheel of Fortune.
A winning smile requires more than sparkling teeth. As a dentist, Dr. Monique Mabry has dedicated nearly 20 years to protecting her patients' oral health, keeping an eye out for potential complications while she and her hygienists brighten smiles with in-office whitening treatments and straighten them out with the Invisalign system. Yet, Dr. Mabry and her team recognize that a smile's frame is just as important. This is why she and her aesthetic assistant perform lip-enhancement procedures and inject Botox and dermal fillers, reducing the appearance of creases, crow's feet, or wrinkles.
When she isn't beautifying smiles weathered by time or people mistaking rocks for rock candy, Dr. Mabry devotes herself to philanthropic efforts. In 2009, she assisted the Boston Medical Center Grow Clinic for Children in raising nearly $1 million, and gave her time to the Boston Medical Center Friends of Women’s Health
