Nailin Lu's life changed in 2003, when her son was diagnosed with a serious blood disease. Although she initially sought help from conventional medical practitioners, she eventually expanded her search and introduced traditional Chinese herbal medicine into her son's treatment regimen. When her son recovered one month after beginning to take these Chinese herbs, Nailin knew that she wanted to pursue a career in this form of holistic care and bring relief to clients using natural treatment modalities.
At Lu Acupuncture Center, Nailin takes this approach to restore physical, mental, and emotional balance to people's lives—addressing not only their painful symptoms but also the underlying conditions that cause those symptoms. She uses acupuncture treatments to remove blockages in the natural flow of the body's energies by inserting superfine, single-use needles into strategic points across the body. These treatments aim to jump-start the human body's natural healing processes and help clients overcome the chronic pain or stress they have grown accustomed to experiencing. Traditional Chinese herbal medicine and acupressure sessions round out the center's selection of holistically focused treatment options.
The cosmetic experts at Gleam Whitening concentrate all their efforts on making teeth brighter. Their laser-activated whitening system treats teeth discolored from culprits such as coffee, wine, cigarettes, and tea. Platinum, Gold, and Silver packages entail varying amounts of time beneath the laser's blue glow. Whether using a cheek retractor or trays, the whitening technicians are able to bypass much of the tooth sensitivity caused by peroxide interacting with the gums.
FDA-registered Million Dollar Smile restores whiteness to shop-worn smiles during tandem treatments with a dental-grade carbamide-peroxide formula and select wavelengths of LED lights. Using specially designed mouth trays, treatments neutralize discoloration on both the upper and lower teeth. The 16% concentration of hydrogen-peroxide based whitening solution works its whitening magic free of gluten, fluoride, or alcohol, and the shortened exposure to LED lights lightens teeth without softening enamel or disrupting molars’ circadian rhythms.
Gerald W. McDougal, DDS has practiced dentistry for more than four decades, but that doesn't mean he's out of touch with contemporary technology. Along with his two partners, Dr. McDougal enlists modern tools to diagnose and treat dental issues.

Whereas rotary endodontics makes the root-canal process less painful by using a slow-spinning drill to quickly and easily complete the procedure.
