If you hang around outside Distinctive Tan, you might notice a trend: everyone leaving the building has great-looking skin. At both locations, clients can get a custom bronze in either a UV tanning bed?of which the facilities offer a diverse array?or within Mystic Tan airbrush booths. But tanning isn't the only focus of the salons, which have been in business for more than 20 years. Their knowledgeable, Smart Tan?certified staff also supplies WhiteICE teeth-whitening kits and administers red-light therapy, a treatment designed to firm skin and minimize wrinkles wrought by age or time spent trying to impersonate an accordion.
After studying biochemistry and molecular biology as an undergrad, the Dr. Gannon B. Stahl earned his dental degree at the prestigious University of Washington School of Dentistry. Dr. Stahl has garnered acclaim from both patients and fellow dentists—he was named the best cosmetic dentist in Seattle magazine's Best of 2010 Reader's Choice Awards, and awarded a spot on the Seattle Met's peer-nominated Top Dentists lists in 2009, 2010, 2011, and 2012.
To elevate his expertise, Dr. Stahl uses state-of-the-art technology during treatments at Pineview Aesthetic & Family Dentistry. He wields a laser to target periodontal disease, and employs a CEREC 3-D imaging and milling machine to create same-day crowns or tiny busts of medieval kings. Dr. Stahl extends his warmth and expertise outside the walls of his clinic, donating a significant amount of his profits to charities and the local community, and providing free dental care for people in need.
Dedicated expert Dr. Stacy Pacheco straightens top and bottom gnashers with the advanced computer technology of Invisalign, whose clear aligners make precise adjustments to tooth orientation. First, Dr. Pacheco assesses overall oral health with a comprehensive exam, followed by x-rays and oral and facial photos. Next, she mints a series of mouth sheaths that prevent the hassles of traditional braces, such as constantly having to dodge wily scrap-metal collectors. Invisalignees can remove aligners while eating, drinking, and brushing their teeth. Treatment times average 9–24 months, during which time patients will visit Dr. Pacheco every six weeks to ensure healthy progress and trade out aligner sets, which total 18–30 throughout the process on average. If needed, Dr. Pacheco will make up to three revisions to the original case of aligners and one midcourse correction. Dr. Pacheco is also a preferred Invisalign Provider.
Describing his dental work as a mission to "motivate, educate, and promote good oral health that can last a lifetime," Dr. Bill Wong and Dr. Peter Wong help to keep mouths pristine with general and cosmetic services. Using Zoom! whitening treatments, Invisalign tooth-straighteners, and an onsite ceramic tooth-fabricating machine, the dental duo can impose order on even the most jumbled of toothscapes. They also perform preventive measures, such as routine exams and x-rays, to ensure dental problems don't manifest themselves as cavities or tooth graffiti.

The continually educated mouth specialists of Sunshine Dental keep smiles healthy with a tag team of preventative dentistry and modern technology. During the appointment, a licensed dentist scours the mouth for signs of decay, cavities, and lost gummy bears (a $97 value) with an attention to detail normally only exhibited by pickleball referees. X-rays, including four bitewings, an extraoral, and a panoramic (a $234 total value), allow the certified tooth whisperer to inspect cuisine crushers in greater depth in a set of black-and-white snapshots. Take-home whitening treatments evict the yellow from teeth with stain-fighting bleach and a sheriff-delivered court order. Mouths that return dutifully to the dental office every six months for a checkup receive additional treatments for free.
