A member of the American Dental Association and an Invisalign general provider, Dr. Rick K. Harrison helms a team of hygienists who maintain mouth ivories in patients as young as 3 years old. The office's oral-health vanguards dispense services covering all phases of dentistry, including preventive, restorative, and cosmetic procedures such as Zoom! whitening and cementing diamonds to teeth. Harrison also sees to clients' comfort through dental technologies ranging from digital x-rays—which capture sharper resolution with less radiation than traditional x-rays—to oral-cancer screenings that require only a rinse and a special light. An information page helps to put patients at ease, and downloadable new-patient forms help visits to go faster.
Kitty Vink brings more than two decades of beauty experience to her work at Le Cheval Day Spa. As owner of this full-service oasis, she is well acquainted with skincare techniques, laser hair removal, and permanent cosmetics. It was on an educational trip to Hong Kong that she learned about the Chinese footbath—a 20-minute herbal steep followed by a 10-minute massage. This luxurious treatment can be found on the spa's extensive menu, which also includes ear candling, teeth whitening, and mani-pedis.
Led by Doctors Jason and Colleen Olitsky, Smile Stylist treats its patients with individualized care aimed at glorifying grins. Choose a cleaning, exam and x-ray treatment to search out cavities using a laser that emits 90% less radiation than traditional x-rays. Or opt to glimpse your future without the irritating dehydration of time travel with an Invisalign preview. Smile Stylist will take a panoramic x-ray of your mouth and impressions of your teeth; about two weeks later you'll receive a digitized rendering of your smile after an Invisalign treatment, which uses clear, removable trays instead of metal braces, rubber bands and Clydesdales (the treatment is not included in this Groupon). Or transition to alabaster on your own time with a take-home whitening kit, awarded after a twenty-minute office visit during which custom-fitting molds of your nibblin' nuggets will be made for the two-week treatment.
In 2008, husband and wife Jason and Shanon Rabon saw something was missing from their native city of Charlotte. People who wanted a more brilliant smile to display during dates, weddings, or long commutes couldn't gain one with ease. Usually, whitening one?s teeth requires an expensive visit to the dentist to brighten smiles with a combination of hydrogen-peroxide gel and LED light. Jason and Shanon offer an alternative at their seven Whiten My Smile Now locations, which provide the same treatment at a far lower cost. It?s a convenience that has rapidly ascended in popularity: around 15,000 clients seek out the service each year.
During visits, a technician thoroughly explains the procedure and holds up a mirror while the client brushes the whitening gel directly onto their teeth. This brush-delivery method delves deep into the cracks and nooks of the teeth to evenly lift out discoloration and stains. With gel applied, clients relax in a private area under the LED light for approximately 15 minutes. Afterwards, they can check how many shades teeth have brightened by comparing their smiles to a whitening chart.
One part salon and spa, one part fitness center, Alaric Health Beauty and Wellness is a one-stop shop aiming to glam up, firm up, and wind down clients' bodies. Hairstylists sweep men?s and women?s manes into trendy styles and nourish scalps with deep conditioner and hydrating scalp treatments. During one-hour Swedish massages, long, flowing strokes untie knotted muscles and help rejuvenate auras cluttered with stress and stale boxes of chi, and basic and deep pore-cleansing facials exfoliate visages to help skin regain a youthful glow. Inside the full-service fitness center, bodies work toward fitness goals among rows of weight and cardio machines, and can attempt to expedite results with help from a personal trainer or prescription weight-loss program.
Dr. Holly Nadji, recently named one of the area's top dentists by Jacksonville Magazine, has improved more than 18,000 smiles during her 18 years in the dental industry. In spite of these impressive numbers, Dr. Holly Nadji manages to devote her full attention to every patient she treats. She takes time to not only examine the teeth and gums, but also assess the function of jaw joints, perform bite analyses, and devise custom treatment plans.
