The dental team at Palm Valley Pediatric Dentistry doesn't want children to grow up dreading the dentist. That's why they do everything they can to keep kids comfortable and happy during appointments. Before procedures, the team explains in non-scary terms what's going to be done and, during the procedure, deftly distracts patients from any surprising sensations with toys. Emphasizing positive reinforcement, they heap kudos onto brave soldiers throughout the visitation and reward them at the end with an electric toothbrush.
Dr. Kenneth Pettit has flourished in every corner of the medical world, from treating ailments as a family practitioner, urgent-care physician, and hospice provider to brightening outer beauty as the medical director for Luminescence Aesthetic Medicine. A member of both the American Medical Association and the American Osteopathic Association, Dr. Pettit has appeared at or near the top of the Ahwatukee Foothills News's Top Doctor poll every year since 2007, landing in the top three in 2008 and 2009 and winning the crown outright in 2007 and 2010-13.
At Luminescence Aesthetic Medicine, Dr. Pettit and his team preserve youthful complexions and figures using a blend of traditional spa services and advanced technology. Dermal-filler injections, body contouring, and laser treatments are among the many services and products provided.
Unlike other doctor-led medspas, Paradise Medspa & Wellness' doctors Rebecca Weiss and Kristine Sarna go out of their way to meet with each client on every one of their visits. Offering complimentary consultations about their services, the doctors help set expectations for their clientele while creating a treatment plan to help them achieve their physical goals. The service list is wide ranging, with acupuncture, chemical peels, and laser services that tackle veins and hair across the body. The doctors' staff also performs detoxification, VASER liposuction, and VISIA skincare analyses.
The staff at Premier Wellness Center knows that beauty lies both inside and out; that's why their services cover both wellness and esthetic needs. Medically minded staffers provide weight-management, pain-management, and naturopathic treatments, as well as acupuncture, hormone testing, and nutritional advice. But the center also boasts a team of beauty-minded staffers who helm facials, exfoliate skin with chemical peels, and administer Botox injections to fill in the wrinkles and tally marks on the forehead that give away a person's age.
Paul Sweeney is a licensed acupuncture physician who is certified in pediatric mental health. At his clinic, AZ Medical Acupuncture, he helps boost wellness with both. When practicing acupuncture, he specializes in treating migraines, fibromyalgia, and addiction.
