Partnership for Excellence's dynamic twosome of David M. Johnson, D.D.S. and Branon D. Johnson, D.D.S. apply 40 years of combined dental experience and state of the art technology to vanquish teeth-deteriorating plaque and supply a polished shine to glimmering mouth-diamonds. During an examination ($83 value) and cleaning ($87 value), a professional tooth technician will do a head count to make sure all teeth are present before a power-washing that blasts away leftover residue from last week's bout of geophagy-induced clay eating. A powerful x-ray ($133 value) should reveal any signs of decay, bone abnormality, or the existence of thought-thieving tooth trolls. Whatever your oral arcade calls for, the dentists at Partnership for Excellence have the necessary tokens.
Dr. Richard Koch, a former army captain whose family refers to him as a human encyclopedia, and Dr. Doug Koch have been filling cavities, installing implants, and straightening teeth for more than two decades. The dental professionals describe themselves as conservative, ensuring that every procedure they do is necessary, instead of yanking out every tooth with spinach clinging to it.
They work in an office that eases anxiety with treatment massage chairs, and offers a toy tower that rewards children who didn’t eat one of the dentist’s fingers. They use advanced technology such as digital x-rays and a soft tissue laser, and they update their equipment every 1–2 years.
At Beautiful Touch Day Spa, a small team of beauty professionals unite under a single goal: to care and serve the inner beauty as well as the outer beauty. The service menu serves this purpose by helping to boost each client’s sense of well-being and self-esteem through pampering treatments, such as deep-tissue and hot-stone massages. The spa's lineup of skincare treatments range from classic, customized facials to more targeted regimens such as chemicals peels and IPL photofacials. The staff can also help clients whittle away inches through body wraps, diet plans, and nutritional programs.
Inside the meticulously cleaned facility, equipped with training from laser specialist Victor Byers, the technicians at The New Canvas specialize in erasing ink and returning skin to its original blank state. Though they custom tailor each tattoo-removal plan, the centerpiece of their arsenal is always the Quanta DNA Q+C+T laser. The instrument, which can be calibrated to different wavelengths suited to different colors of ink, blasts a square beam over the skin to break apart ink molecules without causing harmful laser overlap. Once broken down, the particles are dissolved naturally by the body's lymphatic system. The team also runs a Zimmer Cryo 6 cooling system during each treatment, which, like riding in a convertible filled with snowmen, cools the skin with gusts of chilled air.
Using a combination of whitening gel and FDA-approved blue accelerating lights, the DaVinci teeth-whitening system can leave teeth an average of up to eight shades whiter. During office visits, clients apply the signature whitening solution—an organic plant- and mineral-based gel—to chompers. A specially designed LED laser light is used with the food-grade hydrogen-peroxide gel to lift lingering stains. Once the tonal transformation is complete, patients may walk away with the graffiti of tobacco, wine, coffee, and age erased from the highway overpasses of their smiles. To continue the process, patients can also take home a personal whitening kit that includes 12 gel applications, custom-fitted trays, and remineralizing and desensitizing gel to care for enamel.
With an FDA-approved LED laser and organic whitening gel, DaVinci by Cissie's trained specialist brightens smiles up to eight shades. She offers detailed instructions to each client, guiding them through the process of applying the whitening gel before switching on the laser's beams. The treatment will not harm enamel, and results can last indefinitely with proper maintenance.
