The dentists at Boulder Dental Center, Littleton Dental, and Flatirons Dental Center, some of whom are faculty members at the University of Colorado School of Dental Medicine, obviously care for their patients. They use digital x-rays, which administer less potentially harmful radiation, laughing gas to relax anxious patients, and a computer-controlled anesthetic-injection system for diminished discomfort.
But what sets the dentists at these two clinics apart is the fact that they also care about those other than their patients. The dentists have lent their skills to the less fortunate, volunteering for mission trips to rural Tennessee, Mexico, and the Dominican Republic, as well as a t the 2011 Colorado Mission of Mercy, a two-day event that provided free dental care to more than 1,300 people.
Sun Smile encourages customers to pamper themselves with services such as teeth whitening, spray tans, and pre- and post-spray tan products. Customers can grab at-home kits stocked with carbamide peroxide whitening gel to gain pearly smiles on their own time or sit in for an LED-assisted bleaching procedure. Mystic spray tans eschew harmful UV rays for a spritz-based tan that offers a temporary bronze perfect for secretly napping in a sculpture gallery.
Offering prompt and personalized service, Dr. Trent Redfearn and his staff of mouth ivory ticklers help build sterling and healthy smiles with an array of cosmetic- and family-dental services. Customizing each cleaning to the patient’s periodontal health, Redfearn’s dental hygienists use medicated gels and prescription mouth rinses as they bristle bicuspids free of stains and tartar-tagged graffiti. Dr. Redfearn also leads each guest through a comprehensive oral evaluation, which includes an oral-cancer screening and diagnostic photos. Teeth will receive a flattering photo shoot with a full-mouth series of digital x-rays that accurately diagnose any concerns while using less radiation than traditional x-rays. Open Monday–Thursday, Redfearn Family Dental may also levy additional costs for dental cleanings if periodontal issues or adamantium fillings are present.
At Liquid Salon and Spa, a troupe of 25 stylists, spa techs, and manicurists perform beauty magic on a stage decorated with earth-toned tile patterns and welcoming wall art. Modern fixtures spill calming light onto styling stations where master hair artists bestow heads with updos, precision haircuts, and color work. Customers stride over to comfy leather chairs at a manicure area or retire to a tranquil private treatment room for a massage. A menu of spa packages orchestrates medleys of various services, such as the Wedding Cake bridal package, which includes waxings, nail services, and an updo, along with free mimosas and bouquet-vaulting lessons for brides-to-be. In addition to supporting the beauty triumphs of clients, the salon and spa also supports a number of local charitable causes, including Locks of Love and the National Breast Cancer Foundation.
Nestled in Littleton’s Old Town, Old Town Dental is a perfect match for its historic surroundings. The practice welcomed its first patient more than four decades ago, and it has maintained its ties to the local community even as its technologies have moved forward with the times. This delicate balance between old fashioned and cutting edge can be attributed to Dr. Shawn Maloy, whose father founded the practice, and Dr. Michael Miller. The pair embraces new technologies in their field, using digital x-rays to reduce radiation exposure, intraoral cameras to allow for more in-depth examinations, and Zoom! whitening treatments to help teeth shine like holiday lights dipped in glow-in-the-dark paint.
The staff at Luminous Spa & Wellness pampers guests with powerful beauty routines that summon pure serenity. During a Swedish or deep-tissue massage, the staff can also soothe headaches with a lavender-oil scalp treatment. Services like these embody the spa's commitment to total-body wellness, rather than just beauty and rest alone.
In addition to skincare, massage, and aesthetic laser treatments, the staff fights cellulite and signs of aging with innovative technology. Their Synergie Cellulite Reduction treatments help smooth and shape problem areas. Alternatively, i-Lipo sessions use non-invasive, cool laser technology to sculpt bodies into lean lines. A private workout room and infrared sauna are available for customers to detoxify.
