The dentists at Boulder Dental Center, Littleton Dental, and Flatirons Dental Center, some of whom are faculty members at the University of Colorado School of Dental Medicine, obviously care for their patients. They use digital x-rays, which administer less potentially harmful radiation, laughing gas to relax anxious patients, and a computer-controlled anesthetic-injection system for diminished discomfort.
But what sets the dentists at these two clinics apart is the fact that they also care about those other than their patients. The dentists have lent their skills to the less fortunate, volunteering for mission trips to rural Tennessee, Mexico, and the Dominican Republic, as well as a t the 2011 Colorado Mission of Mercy, a two-day event that provided free dental care to more than 1,300 people.
Certified by The Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Canada and a member of multiple medical societies, Dr. Jeffrey Swail and his staff enhance patients' appearances through both surgical and nonsurgical cosmetic procedures. In addition to these therapies, Dr. Swail has donated his time as a surgical missionary for more than 10 years, traveling to Third-World nations to perform treatments such as repairing the cleft lips and palates of children in the Philippines.
Registered nurse, certified midwife, and certified laser specialist Michelle Hartman helms You Living Younger—but for all her mainstream credentials, she embraces alternative treatments. Rather than relying on pharmaceuticals, Hartman’s wellness center focuses on remedies that range from natural supplements to body-balancing technology, in an attempt to create of community of individuals who want to change the status quo in healthcare and take control of their own health and well being. Regardless of whether she’s overseeing detoxifying infrared sauna sessions or ionic footbaths, Hartman focuses on prevention and custom care, a style far preferable to just prescribing either crutches or Band-Aids to everyone.
Glo Laser and Skin Rejuvenation Clinic brings advanced weaponry to the fight against aging: fractional CO2 lasers. Using high-fidelity scanning, the lasers zap webs of microscopic dots on the skin's surface, stimulating the body's natural healing processes. Rushing to repair the tiny punctures, cells ramp up production of skin-firming elastin and collagen, smoothing away wrinkles and restoring firmness to sagging areas. The fine spacing of the lasered dots also speeds the healing process, resulting in a minimum of downtime after each procedure so that patrons can quickly return to their desk at the office or their blanket fort in their home-office.
Under the tutelage of Dr. Michael Adler, the Boulder Center for Advanced Dentistry engages the latest technologies for a modern, efficient dental experience. With a new-patient exam and hygiene visit, chompers are treated to a comprehensive exam ($88), complete cleaning ($107), oral-hygiene instruction ($23), and nutritional counseling ($68). Mouth bones will also receive a complete set of intra-oral x-rays ($186), using digital technology that instantly provides high-resolution images with 90% less radiation than earlier x-ray methods, and a set of oral pictures ($38) taken by a mini video camera lets patients see the condition of their food-mashers and preps them for magazine spreads. Alternatively, opt for a $300 credit toward cosmetic or orthodontic services, including veneers, porcelain crowns or inlays ($1,604), tooth-colored resin fillings ($181–$343), root canals ($897–$1,123), and more.
