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. After completing his degree in osteopathic medicine from Western University College Of Health Sciences in Pomona, CA, he went on to work as a family practitioner for Comprehensive Family Care, partner in Comprehensive Hospice and Palliative Care, and the owner of Desert Ridge Urgent Care. 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 2010-12.
When he's not busy racking up awards, Dr. Pettit works as the medical director of Luminescence Aesthetic Medicine. Here, the doctor shows off his equally impressive medspa training, which includes certifications from Rocky Mountain College of Electrology and Laser and Candela and membership in the Academy of Medicine and Laser Surgery and the American College of Phlebology. True to this experience, he and his team preserve youthful complexions and figures using a blend of traditional spa services and advanced technology. Patients can feel at ease as Dr. Pettit shows off his skills with dermal-filler injections and laser treatments for a range of aesthetic purposes, such as hair removal with GentleLase and a Sciton MicroLaser peel, which erases signs of aging such as fine lines and monocle scars. Beyond laser therapy, the clinic also refines skin with facials and peels that call on Obagi skincare products.
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.
For more than a quarter century, the skilled staff at Advanced Medical Center has tended to Arizona families with comprehensive medical services, creating individualized plans to meet their goal of "treating the whole person." The center's preventative health services identify potential problem areas, while walk-in urgent care tends to the unforeseen. A licensed aesthetician tends to skin and provides other cosmetic services, helping patients look as youthful and healthy as they feel.
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.
