Dr. Andrew Hall's love of tending to teeth has led him across the country and the globe. After returning from a deployment in Iraq, where he provided dental services for nearly 2,500 soldiers and civilians, he set out again, this time for training at the Las Vegas Institute for Advanced Dental Studies, which specializes in neuromuscular and cosmetic dentistry. Today, he couples his advanced experience with advanced dental technology such as Cerec 3-D imaging, which helps him to create precise-fitting crowns in around an hour and negates the need to implant temporary crowns or tiny, tooth-colored construction cones. His office also caters to nervous patients with the use of NuCalm, a natural relaxation aid that joins forces with soothing music to bring bodies to a presleep-like state of calm.
Dr. Richard Koch, a former army captain whose family refers to him as a human encyclopedia, and Dr. Doug Koch have been filling cavities, installing implants, and straightening teeth for more than two decades. The dental professionals describe themselves as conservative, ensuring that every procedure they do is necessary, instead of yanking out every tooth with spinach clinging to it.
They work in an office that eases anxiety with treatment massage chairs, and offers a toy tower that rewards children who didn’t eat one of the dentist’s fingers. They use advanced technology such as digital x-rays and a soft tissue laser, and they update their equipment every 1–2 years.
Dr. Fred Guerra's commitment to offering patients "a caring, gentle touch" grows out of a lifelong dedication to serving others. Dr. Guerra joined the Air Force after graduating from Tufts University School of Dental Medicine in 1976; his military career culminated in a post as the director of dental services at the United States Air Force Academy. Today, he gives back to the community by supporting organizations that help victims of domestic violence and conducting annual volunteer efforts on behalf of the Give Kids a Smile program, which provides underserved children with free dental care.
Dr. Guerra's patient-centered, compassionate approach to dentistry is also reflected in the office's many amenities, including pillows and blankets, iPods and flat-screen TVs, and soothing music. To further promote guests' comfort, he uses the latest technological advancements. He is one of the few dentists in the country to use a powerful surgical microscope during root canals and other services that require increased visibility. Dr. Guerra is also an avid golfer and fitness enthusiast, which enhances his ability to custom-fit Under Armour mouth guards for athletes in contact sports or technicians who repair batting-cage pitching machines.

Though small, many of the spa's rooms are designed for side-by-side services such as massages, body treatments, facials, and mani-pedis.
