Licensed acupuncturist Karen S. Oliva embraces toyo hari acupuncture, first developed by blind practitioners in the 1930s. Nicknamed gentle acupuncture, toyo hari employs very subtle palpations to release blockages in the chi—the body's vital energy—that can lead to pain, disease, and March Madness. Karen believes in supplementing acupuncture with holistic therapies such as herbs and facial rejuvenation therapy, which boosts collagen and elasticity in worn-out mugs.
Dr. Windsor and his staff at Kenilworth Dentistry have been safeguarding oral health for patients around northern Baltimore since 1980. Although the list services includes all manner of general dentistry procedures, the team specializes in cosmetic and restorative treatments such as teeth whitening, implants, and laser dentistry. What's more, to help alleviate the anxiety some patients feel at the dentist, they've taken care to furnish the office with a slew of comforting amenities, including warm blankets and pillows, and chicken soup-flavored tongue retractors.
Dr. Anyadike is a dentist to the dentists. Dedicated solely to orthodontic care, he and his team are trusted to tend to the teeth of doctors, hygienists, speech therapists, and their families. He extends a choice of braces to his patients. The option of colorful elastics and clear brackets or Wild Smiles brackets shaped like hearts and stars put patients in charge of their interior decoration. Dr. Anyadike is also qualified to supply Invisalign braces, nearly invisible aligners molded with the aid of 3-D computer imaging and the office caricaturist.
Continuing-education courses keep Dr. Edward Sharkey abreast of the latest innovations in the fields of periodontal, surgical, and cosmetic dental care. By updating his dental know-how, he can offer his patients these treatments, including checking for cavities with a diagnostic laser, taking digital tooth impressions with a 3-D imaging program, or making smiles brighter than a radioactive snowflake with the Zoom whitening system. When he’s not treating patients at his clinic, Dr. Sharkey also serves on the surgical staff at Howard County General Hospital and donates his scuba-diving skills to the National Aquarium in Baltimore.
Dr. Steven W. Haywood?s proficiency at transforming smiles earned him a spot on ABC2?s Extreme Makeover Special, and his staff strives to recreate the calming atmosphere of a spa in their office. In cosmetic dentistry treatments, Dr. Haywood fills gaps between teeth with porcelain veneers and straightens smiles with Invisalign and orthodontia. Lasers whiten teeth in fewer than two hours or help the doctor sniff out cavities without calling in a specialized bloodhound to follow the scent of decay through your mouth. An intraoral video camera sends mouth-views to a TV screen, letting both doctor and patient share the same view of each tooth.
