At Juban Dental Care, Dr. Michael Juban and a team of skilled technicians fortify smiles with preventive and cosmetic services. A doctoral graduate of the Dawson Center for the advancement of dentistry, Dr. Juban has the experience to handle complex, full-mouth restorative cases and employs the latest technology, such as digital x-rays and Opalescence or Zoom! teeth-whitening products. Visiting guests can abandon their stresses in the office's calm environment, marked by beige-colored walls, plush leather furniture, and paintings of saxophonists. As a dental expert cleans plaque or sets crowns, patients can watch the flat-panel television positioned above the treatment chair or stare through the window to awkwardly lock eyes with the tooth fairy hiding in the bushes.
With its more than 150 polish shades, Carlana Nail Spa can take nails from natural pink to unnatural pink. From basic manicures and pedicures to Shellac french manicures and spa mani-pedis, nail guru Ana Johnson expertly shapes nails and softens skin during a range of treatments.

Dr. Matthew Randall and his professional staff protect cuisine crushers with a tag team of preventative dentistry and the latest tooth technology. During the appointment, patients can cozy up under a soft blanket as the dentist meticulously examines mouths, making sure teeth and gums are as healthy as a ThighMaster eating an apple. A set of full mouth x-rays for adults and two bitewing x-rays for wee ones allows the dentist to search for mouth maladies such as cavities and bone loss in tell-all photographs. (If necessary, children will also receive full mouth x-rays.) The gentle dental hygienist thoroughly cleans chompers coaxing plague, tarter, and misplaced Mr. Potato Head parts from the mouth while educating the patient on dental health.
Dr. Daniel R. Shea, a former U.S. Air Force Dental Officer, leads a skilled staff of chomper champions in the pursuit of spotless smiles. Ameliorate unsightly stains caused by years of coffee consumption and squid-ink martinis with a safe and effective professional teeth-whitening treatment. During the 30- to 60-minute treatment, technicians guard gums with a protective gel and tie rubber bibs around teeth's necks before sudsing their faces with an oxidizing agent. After basking in the gentle glow of a specialized light, ivories emerge with an alabaster radiance. Teeth may become slightly sensitive for a brief period following the treatment.
After graduating from the LSU School of Dentistry near the top of his class, Dr. Louis Mason continued to fill his brain with dental knowledge by racking up more than 1,400 hours of continuing education classes. He works alongside Dr. Kevin Kidder at Advantage Dental Care, and the duo uses digital x-rays and Diagnodent diagnostic lasers to detect hidden cavities and other signs of decay. High tech equipment is also found in the form of a CEREC machine that creates custom crowns and veneers in 15 minutes so chipped, shy, and cracked teeth can be covered with perfectly formed chompers.
