At Brooklyn Blvd. Dental and New Hope Dental, affable staffs of molar masons scrub mouth pearls to a glossy finish and evaluate mouth health through a series of x-rays and an examination. Specialists first expunge gunk and plaque from teeth with a meticulous cleaning, which helps prevent cavities, gingivitis, and geometric busts of the tooth fairy forming inside enamel nooks. A series of four bitewing x-rays allows tooth technicians to survey a variety of oral factors including tissue strength and bone structure. Finally, an examination caps off treatments, during which patients are free to ask questions about maintaining the physical and emotional well-being of their teeth.
Gordon Franks and Pat Worley are more than black belts. They’re ninth-degree black belts who share their chosen martial art with youngsters and adults alike through USA Karate, the school they cofounded. The school - which opened in 1973 and has been operating for more than 40 years - was featured on the local CBS station and teaches self-defense techniques that help students graduate to higher-level belts and translate into increased agility, coordination, and self-confidence.
At Sandpiper Dental, friendly isn’t just a vague way to describe the staff. Drs. Thomas W. Waite and David J. Trebisovsky, both University of Minnesota alums with more than 25 years of experience each, and their staff show patients how much they care by greeting everyone by their first name as they walk through the door. They also handwrite friendly notes to check in with patients after they’ve undergone a root canal or complicated surgery to extract stubborn popcorn kernels. They even have been known to send out hand-crafted birthday cards and flowers on special occasions, and they keep their office equipped with a children’s play area to make the space welcoming to whole family.
Founded in 1948, the ChiroCenter has succeeded through the decades due in large part to the expertise of their doctors of chiropractic, the ranks of whom now include nine different chiropractors with as much as 35 years of experience. At each of the center's five offices, these doctors alleviate their patients' pain using adjusting techniques whose purposes range from improving biomechanics to reducing nervous-system interference. One such technique is the activator method, a process for fixing subluxations that involves delivering low-force, high-speed thrusts with a handheld instrument that resembles a mini pogo stick or a giant ant pogo stick. These practices treat more than just the back; benefits also include reducing fatigue and improving headaches and sciatica.
Doctor of Chiropractic Lindsay Daniels first experienced chiropractic care as a patient. After the treatment worked wonders for her spinal pain, she pursued a career as a chiropractor herself. At Go Health Chiropractic, Dr. Daniels seeks to help patients with the same ameliorative care she received as a patient years ago. Today, she lends her expertise to clients that range from athletes to families and children.
The practitioners at Robin Center Chiropractic don't just fix you up and send you on your way. On the contrary—to help patients maintain good health on their own, they take the time to educate each one about positive lifestyle changes. Part of their method includes wellness practices through holistic medicine that aim to help keep the body in balance. As they work with patients to meet healthy goals, they perform treatments such as spinal adjustments, electrical muscle stimulation, and massage. A range of massage techniques target different issues. Lymphatic massage spurs the functions of that system, reducing inflammation. Other techniques encourage relaxation or improve range of motion or reduce joint pain. The team can use gentle or strong force or incorporate warm river stones.
Exercise videos posted on their website are an added bonus, teaching patients moves that will help them improve strength, stretch their range of motion, and win break-dancing competitions.
