Dr. Erica D. McConley's meticulous attention to detail, combined with her innate sense of compassion, garnered her a coveted Dean’s Leadership Award at the University of Iowa College of Dentistry. Now, at Central Park Dental, she and her staff emphasize patient interaction and feedback, believing that trust and communication set patients at ease. To further build a sense of trust, Dr. McConley outfits her office with up-to-date dental technology designed to keep patients safe while providing accurate diagnoses. Intraoral cameras espy cavities and decay in the mouth’s furthest nooks and crannies. Digital x-rays reveal the hidden goings-on inside bone and teeth while reducing the radiation and nostalgia emitted by traditional x-rays by up to 90%.
Drs. Shelby Denman, Chad Denman, and Jaydee Marrero don?t just want their patients to leave with healthy teeth. They also want their patients to leave happy with their experience at Family Tree Dental Group. And that starts before patients even arrive for their appointment. The dental practice reminds people of upcoming appointments with friendly emails, text messages, and singing telegrams. Once in the office, patients relax in ergonomic dental chairs with blankets and pillows while one of the dentists checks teeth for signs of disease and decay. Each treatment room is outfitted with a television boasting 200 available channels to help pass the time during digital x-rays, mercury-free fillings, and teeth-whitening services.
Floss Dental's dentists and surgeons, many of whom are often featured on local TV stations, may specialize in preventative care, but they also beautify mouths with cosmetic- and reconstructive-surgery services, such as veneers, Invisalign, and dental implants. They harness panoramic x-rays to get a complete view of the teeth, and they broadcast these pictures on a TV, which helps them explain which treatments are necessary and to point out which tooth would look best with an inlaid diamond chip.
Floss Dental encourages patients to keep coming back by offering free Invisalign consultations and free Boost whitening once a year to those who maintain their regular cleanings. Flat-screen TVs and satellite radio entertain patients during their procedures, and sedation dentistry keeps them free from anxiety in a dream-like state.
Though you might not guess it, teamwork can be just as important as top-notch tools in the field of dentistry. At Arbor Dental Associates, Dr. Borgman maintains a strong bond with his staff that helps ensure every treatment goes over smoothly. Thirty years of experience has left him proficient in most every aspect of dentistry, from checkups and fillings to root canals. He’s worked with the same lab technicians for all of these 30 years, which is especially beneficial when he performs restorative and reconstructive dental procedures.

In cosmetology school, MieleDolce founder Luis Iturralde let his fellow students wax him for a class demonstration. His allergic reaction to the chemical wax made it a demonstration of more than proper waxing technique; his brief modeling gig also showed the importance of beauty treatments that avoid irritating skin. Iturralde carried this lesson to his spa, MieleDolce, where the staff sidestep chemical waxes in favor of threading or electrolysis.
The center’s specialty, however, consists of extending hair: its semipermanent silk and mink lash extensions come in a variety of lengths and curvatures, and technicians ensure a natural look by attaching them hair by hair. Additional services range from slimming body wraps infused with aloe vera and herbs to micro skin needling, an anti-aging treatment that can combat wrinkles, scarring, and signs of playing rugby in a crawlspace.
