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.
Residents of the North End don’t have to go to Newbury Street for a great haircut. Instead, they can book an appointment at Philip’s Salon on Hanover Street. The small contemporary stylist is located just a few steps from the waterfront and away from the hustle and bustle of the restaurant zone that Hanover Street is so well known for. From single-process colors, partial highlights and conditioning glosses to trendy cuts, creative blowouts and straightening treatments, the trained stylists recommend new looks based on hair texture and face shape. They also offer hair removal services for bikini, back, eyebrow, lip and underarms, all from inside their brick storefront, touched off with warming wood tones and light wooden floors.
At Adara Spa, beauty curators help shape physiques with microcurrent technology and perform waxing and nail services with the goal of bringing out each guest's innate beauty.

High-quality salon and spa products, including offerings from OPI, Pure Fiji, and G.M. Collin, fill Adara's shelves and stylists' arsenals, allowing staffers to pair skill with rich, effective solutions.

Dr. Sara Pareek, one of North End Dental Associates’ founders, restores the smiles of patients young and old with dental services that include Invisalign, implants, veneers, and general checkups. At their small boutique practice, which is steps from the Financial District, the dentists cater to busy professionals and offer evening and weekend appointments. They also offer complimentary teeth whitening for new patients, cosmetic-dentistry consultations, and woodworking advice.
As patients find their way to the office to undergo the variety of treatments held inside, this State Street dental office located on the first floor of the building is mere steps away from the historic beauty of the Custom House Clock tower. The business was founded in 1991 by Dr. M. Kahveci, who estimates he has served over 5,000 patients since then, while embracing new technology as it becomes available. That means digital radiography – which utilizes less radiation than conventional x-rays – alongside tried-and-true techniques for putting patients at ease. The simple, clinical space helps as well, giving a feel of efficiency and pride in the work being done.
