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. Myron Kellner’s team, which has grown to include Dr. Alex Fishman, helps patients care for and beautify their teeth with cleanings, cosmetic dentistry, and restorative procedures. Mindful of common anxieties or fears surrounding dental appointments, they assuage nervousness with sedation dentistry and by creating a spa-like environment with aromatherapy, spa eye pillows, and paraffin wax treatments. The Smile Design Center has been featured on Baltimore's Dramatic Makeover on ABC/2.
It's hard to be bored at the MAC. With three locations and a host of unique fitness programs, the fitness center has something for even the most indecisive of exercisers. Want to swim in the saltwater lap pools? Play squash on one of the courts? Take part in a MAC training camp? Or start a specialty regimen in the Kinesis, TRX, or Pilates Reformer studio? Committed to a comprehensive wellness program, staffers offer complimentary consultations for new members, as well as nutritional programs. The trainers at MAC Wellness help guests reach their fitness goals while having fun. Athletes looking to restore pre-injury prowess can also dip into one of the therapy pools or whirlpools with a personal trainer.
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.
Dr. Nathanson may be a three-time Jeopardy! champion, but at his dental practice, comprehensive care comes in first. A pioneer in dental technology, he fills his office with equipment aimed at optimizing each patient?s experience. Digital x-rays emit 90% less radiation than traditional systems, and in many cases, WaterLase tools replace drills and shots with lasers and jets of water. Dr. Nathanson also employs the CEREC system, which uses computer-generated images to create porcelain crowns and fillings in a single visit. No matter what the treatment, Dr. Nathanson and his team ensure that they stay on the cutting edge of dentistry by regularly taking continuing-education courses, attending seminars, and having coffee with the tooth fairy, and keep connected to the community by contributing to charitable organizations.
