Northern Virginia Wellness Center helps patients refurbish dull looks with a full host of non-invasive cosmetic treatments. Here, lasers zap unwanted hair, spider veins, and tattoos, and facial injections and non-ablative skin-tightening treatments keep faces smooth and bright. Working in conjunction with the MediSun team, the center's clinicians draw upon decades of experience when administering high-tech treatments such as skin-restoring IPL photofacials.
Dr. Dana and the staff of dental technicians at Carrollwood Dental illuminate smiles with in-office Zoom! teeth-whitening treatments. Clinicians first gently tuck away lips and gums, then layer grins with Zoom! whitening gel. A specially designed light activates the gel, which breaks up yellowing and stains with energetic oxygen surges and threats of soap-bar bubble baths. The sessions can last 90–120 minutes, depending on desired whitening levels, and clients can expect to see teeth lighten an average of four to eight shades. Brightened grins bathe in a five-minute fluoride treatment to strengthen and protect enamel without the use of cumbersome adamantium mouthguards.
Drs. Scott and Michelle Weninger complement each other both personally and professionally. The husband-and-wife duo helm Weninger Dentistry, where Dr. Scott draws on his continued education in dental implants, sedation dentistry, and cosmetic fillers. Dr. Michelle, meanwhile, has studied orthodontics, sleep apnea, and TMJ post-grad. Together, they help patients with these conditions and also perform traditional dental-care procedures, including digital x-rays, cleanings, and fluoride treatments.
Dr. Dang Ha will do almost anything to get patients the dental care they need, even if it means knocking them out. The Tampa Bay–born Tufts University graduate focuses in sedation dentistry, which removes the hurdle of anxiety from services such as bridge work, implants, and cosmetic procedures. Indeed, Dr. Ha's entire practice is designed to induce a state of calm—from the soothing manner of the staff to the softly lit, buttercup-yellow walls of the office to the gentle whale songs each hygienist has been trained to sing.
To bolster her 12 years of experience, Dr. Bijal Joshi, a former faculty member at UCLA Dental School and a current staff dentist at St. John's, regularly attends lectures and courses that maintain her arsenal of skills. Dr. Joshi then brings her knowledge of the latest in dental technology to her practice, which has a modern sterilization system that surpasses OSHA requirements and uses pure bottled water, instead of tap water or milk, in its dental units. She uses oral sedation and laughing-gas technology in her family-oriented practice, gussying up the chompers of children, adults, and households' pet tooth fairies alike with a variety of services.
