Run by an award-winning father-son team, the experienced staff of 11 dentists at Kennedy Dental Care brings gum ornaments into meticulous alignment. One of the pearly white specialists commences the 45-minute evaluation ($39) with a careful naked-eye inspection of dental alignment before escorting molar-holders to the x-ray machine for a further assessment ($165). Finally, patients will be coaxed to sink their teeth into a diagnostic cast ($98), which once hardened, will provide a third measure of oral orderliness to assist the dentist in making recommendations for treatment or unique jaw-shaped ashtrays.
Vera Auvil's passion in life has always been cultivating knick-knacks and odds-and-ends—her "sweet nothings," as her husband used to say—so when the opportunity to purchase her own store came her way, she knew she wanted to fill its shelves and aisles with her favorite little things: clothes, jewelry, home décor, and makeup. She christened the shop Auvil's Sweet Nothings and set to work cultivating local artisans and national vendors who proffer goods such as De Novo, Waterford crystal, and Yellow Box Shoes. The skilled staffers at her vendor-based store can even help clients brighten smiles with Beaming White teeth-whitening services, make-over mugs with Jane Iredale cosmetics, and learn to cheat during shopping-cart races.
The eco-minded team at Island Day Spa nourishes skin with naturally derived formulas that demonstrate respect for the environment. Whether hydrating feet in warm paraffin wax or exfoliating skin with a walnut scrub, staffers employ Aveda products, which are formulated with ingredients such as organic essential oils and cage-free herbs. Microdermabrasion and microcurrent therapy combat fine lines or skin laxity, and Aveda's enzyme- and nutrient-rich products add curative benefits to aromatherapy massages and reflexology sessions.
Smile Sciences distributes effective, FDA--registered teeth-whitening products to dental offices and anyone looking to sport flashier grins brightened up to 10 shades. Each of the company’s USA--made whitening products, such as Day & Night Whitening Pens, stain remover, and LED light-activated gel kits, is formulated to keep sensitive teeth comfy. The dentist-created and hygienist-approved pens aim to counteract the effects of consuming coffee, soda, and heavily edited cotton candy without causing irritation. Applying a mini LED light, which activates the gel when held in front of the face and teeth, helps to speed up the process to take as little time as 20 minutes.
