Clear Choice Orthodontic Associates's founder Dr. Ray McLendon possesses just about the highest pedigree one could seek in an Invisalign provider. He worked as the vice president of Align Technologies, the company that developed Invisalign braces. Today, he's back to working with patients, conducting exams with x-rays and providing advice on what type of braces would best suit each client, whether its traditional metal braces or Invisalign retainers to match invisible teeth.
Dr. Todd Brady, DMD, combines more than 1,000 hours of continuing education with cutting-edge mouth-scouring technology to restore smiles to a glimmering, healthy sheen. Dr. Brady starts with a routine inspection of soft tissues, ferreting out any signs of oral cancer and periodontal disease before wielding a laser cavity-detection device, discovering cavities and WiFi hotspots. After the exam, enamel curio cabinets receive a thorough cleaning and buffing, as Dr. Brady scrapes away built-up plaque. Chair-bound patients can listen to music, blink out Morse code lyrics, or watch movies during the exam before quaffing some nectar from the juice bar. Before your appointment, be sure to download and fill out patient forms and HIPAA forms.
Dr. Mike Kesner has always had a knack for working with his hands. As a boy, he constantly built model vehicles. In college, his plans to become a medical doctor shifted to dentistry because it held more opportunity for the hands-on manipulation of small instruments and precision parts. In 1984, he established Made Ya Smile Dental, a place where he carefully extracts wisdom teeth, fills in spaces between teeth, and installs implants into the jawbone to replace a missing tooth. He also specializes in Lumineers, and his practice?s ten locations together make up the number one Lumineers provider in the world.
Although he and his team of dentists work in separate locations, each of their offices share a similar design and set of amenities. Visitors at any of the ten locations marvel at the reception areas? coffeehouse ambiance as they sit at a caf? table, sip coffee, and work on the movie script for Vampires vs. Martians: The Reddest Dawn. In the treatment rooms, patients drift off while listening to music on the provided headphones. Anxious patients relax with nitrous oxide or the sounds of the rainforest simulated by the staff.
Grogan's Mill Dental has a singular weapon against closed-mouth smiles: Dr. Ferguson. The dentist has nearly two decades of dental practice in his arsenal. This expertise is put to good use during a wealth of services that restore and maintain smiles, from basic cleanings to implant procedures and extractions and teeth whitening. Not one to rest on his laurels, the good dentist stays up to date on the latest oral-maintenance technologies with frequent research, continual training, and occasional Skype calls with the tooth fairy.
Sometimes it takes more than medication to heal. That?s why acupuncturist Linda Wentz founded Holistic Touch Center and its mission to help hasten the healing process by offering services that extend beyond the body to incorporate the needs of the mind and spirit. There, Silvy Franco and Shawn Marie Miller, the center's holistic estheticians, blend years of skin care experience with training in natural health and energy medicine to produce treatments that restore the body while rebalancing the mind and spirit. They read each client's skin like a map, plotting out appropriate treatment courses that are delivered as part of one of the center's rituals, which include components ranging from traditional facials and detoxifying peels to Vitamin C infusions and cold stone massages. In addition to performing these rituals, Silvy and Shawn also help clients adapt these treatments for use in at-home skin care regimens, keeping epidermises glowing and well-adjusted to changes in seasonal weather.
Those interested in acupuncture may enlist in Kirsten Jacob, a trained herbalist who received her Masters of Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine from Han University of Traditional Medicine in Tucson, Az.

Her specialities include pediatric and family acupuncture, behavioral/learning issues, and stress reduction and internal medicine. Kirsten incorporates classical Chinese botanical therapy into her work, which includes tui na?or Chinese medical/therapeutic massage?cupping, and moxa. When she is not helping her clients attain inner peace through eastern healing techniques, she tends to her kids while indulging in reading, writing, and traveling.
