Unlike the sun, who can't be bothered to give up his beauty sleep, Birmingham Tan keeps bronzing bodies till 9 p.m. on weekdays and offers convenient weekend hours to suit busy schedules. Staffed by a team of knowledgeable tanning experts, the salon maintains a fleet of Puretan and Suncapsule tanning equipment that baste pale skin with five varying levels of hue-shifting rays. Those hoping to avoid the synthetic beams can opt for a UV-free Mystic Tan session, which includes a brief instruction video that shows first timers how to operate the booth or use it as an emergency floatation device.
To Dr. Daniel Mashni and his team, patients' comfort is just as important as their oral health. That's why they stock the office with the latest ease-enhancing advancements in dental technology—including digital x-ray scanners and a sterilization system that provides distilled, crystal-clear water for every appointment—and by thoroughly explaining all of the available options to their clients. The specialists might recommend general, cosmetic, or restorative dental care, although every service shares the common goal of leaving teeth healthy and sparkling. Veneers, implants, and crowns can all help seal gaps or conceal signs of damage, and Invisalign treatments even out teeth without the use of metal braces. The practice also offers in-office as well as at-home whitening procedures, which leave smiles as stain-free as the apron of the inventor of invisible ink.
Dr. Timothy Kosinski of SmileCreator has placed over 7,000 dental implants throughout his career. When he isn't crafting dentures, treating gums, or replacing fangs with tusks, he works as an adjunct assistant professor at a university. Because of his achievements in his field, he won the Lifelong Learning and Service Recognition award from the Academy of General Dentistry in 2009. In addition to contributing to two textbooks, he has published more than 80 articles on implant dentistry and has written an unpublished collection of dental-themed haikus. Although Dr. Kosinski offers more routine preventive care, he mostly performs full-mouth reconstruction and cosmetic dentistry, and so, in order to help patients relax during these services, he can use both intravenous and oral sedation. Treatment rooms help patients unwind without sedation with TVs, individual headphones, DVDs, and computer equipment.
Inside this state-of-the-art dental center, Drs. John and Gianni S. DeCarolis combine their expertise to administer cleanings, cosmetic dentistry, and dental treatments for the entire family. The up-to-date office swells with elegance, from the wall-size windows overlooking a verdant lawn to the French-style double doors leading into the reception area. But it’s the advanced technology housed beyond those doors that really makes the studio swell with sophistication. Digital x-rays and intraoral cameras provide a rare look at each tooth’s internal health and the uvula’s collection of swallowed gum, while Zoom whitening procedures help take years off a smile with help from a light-activated gel.
Signature Smiles's two resident dentists, Dr. Jeffrey Solomon and Dr. Greg Young, perform an array of dental services that range from Invisalign to oral surgery. Dr. Young specializes in implant dentistry and surgical procedures, and Dr. Solomon is certified through the Dental Organization for Conscious Sedation, which means he can calm patients' nerves just by winking in their general direction. Both dentists participate in continuing education to keep their skills up-to-date, and offer extended hours and Saturday appointments to accommodate busy patients.
Keeping teeth and gums healthy may be Dr. Kaz’s main prerogative, but that doesn’t mean he lets aesthetics fall to the wayside. In fact, the lead doctor of Kaz Advanced Dentistry takes cosmetic dentistry a few steps further than your average dentist. In addition to Zoom! teeth whitening, at-home bleaching, veneers, and Invisalign, Dr. Kaz offers Botox and Radiesse to combat wrinkles and fine lines around the face.
