The multi-lingual staff at Dr. Dental, a family-run practice, strives to shatter orthodontic stereotypes by tidying up tusks in an unintimidating office sporting the ambience of a friendly neighborhood establishment. Return choppers to a glowing state with a new-patient cleaning, a procedure that polishes pearly whites and analyzes teeth’s deep-seated fear of falling out and being exiled by a fairy. After a deep cleaning, the non-judgmental dentist administers bitewing x-rays to inspect for toothy ailments and lays out a long-term treatment plan for molar maintenance. Many locations offer after-hours and weekend appointment times for patients who are busy with work, family, or animal husbandry.
Since 1885, Dillons Russian Steam Bath has been steaming stress out of its patrons, making it one of the oldest traditional Russian baths in the United States. Using the time-honored methods of the banya, Dillons' steam chamber seeks to subdue stress and tension with heated granite rocks, billowing steam, and sponges of cold water for invigorating dousing. At its balmiest, the upper bench of the steam room can reach as high as 180 degrees, promoting a healthy, skin-softening sweat and a bevy of ulterior body benefits.
Fairmont Battery Wharf stands at the hub of a substantial portion of the things that make Boston Boston. It's a quick walk to the Italian North End, the financial district, the Freedom Trail, Faneuil Hall, and TD Garden. And then, of course, there's the wharf and harbor, a rare perch for a boutique hotel. In fact, visitors might be tempted to ignore all the cultural attractions at their doorstep and just kick back around the fire pits at The Terrace, the hotel's waterfront outdoor restaurant, or tuck into the crispy potato gnocchi and harbor views at Aragosta Bar and Bistro. Likewise, they might while away an afternoon at Fairmont's award-winning day spa, Exhale, and enjoy a massage or facial in one of a dozen therapy rooms.
The waterfront location has one other special benefit: travel by water taxi. The hotel's private vessel shuttles guests year round throughout Boston Harbor and all the way to Logan International Airport, meaning they never have to worry about renting a car or getting someone to watch their horse.
