Comfort Dental has earned more than 200 five-star patient reviews on Demandforce.com, due in no small part to the emphasis that Dr. George Rizkalla and his caring team place on patient comfort. From the moment guests arrive, they enjoy amenities that include a beverage station with coffee, hot chocolate, and tea, as well as a children's area where kids can play with toys. Patients entering the treatment room find entertainment in the form of a personal TV and headphones set, as well as free Wi-Fi. Warm, lavender-scented neck wraps soothe the senses with aromatherapy, and heated or cooled towels can ease muscles or freshen the face.
To further enhance the experience of patients with anxiety, Dr. Rizkalla offers sedation dentistry. He also saves clients time by using the E4D system to create a three-dimensional image of a tooth and forge a ceramic or composite block. He then places the finished crown, all within a single day.
At Sandpiper Dental, friendly isn’t just a vague way to describe the staff. Drs. Thomas W. Waite and David J. Trebisovsky, both University of Minnesota alums with more than 25 years of experience each, and their staff show patients how much they care by greeting everyone by their first name as they walk through the door. They also handwrite friendly notes to check in with patients after they’ve undergone a root canal or complicated surgery to extract stubborn popcorn kernels. They even have been known to send out hand-crafted birthday cards and flowers on special occasions, and they keep their office equipped with a children’s play area to make the space welcoming to whole family.
Long before she received her cosmetic physician certification, Dr. Leslie Smith's medical and surgical career began at the State University of Michigan, where years of study led to the completion of her surgical training and the acquisition of a comprehensive knowledge of school fight songs. Dr. Smith then volunteered for military service, specializing in burn and tissue injuries as an Army officer at the Brooke Army Medical Center in San Antonio. Dr. Smith's research in burns, trauma, and soft tissue has garnered the attention of members of the national and international community, such as the American College of Osteopathic Surgeons and the Royal College of Surgeons in London. All this education and experience has led Sapphire Advanced Aesthetics to receive the SUN Current Readers' Choice Award for Best Laser Hair Removal in 2014.
Invisalign straightens crooked chompers through a combination of highly advanced, 3-D computer graphics and the spells of good old-fashioned orthodontia. Eleven different practices feature orthodontists specially trained and certified in the Invisalign process, which eschews cumbersome braces for clear, removable aligners that are virtually invisible to the unclothed eye. An initial exam, including x-rays, photos, and impressions of your mouth terrain, will pave the way for a flurry of calibrated teeth sheaths that are designed to slowly shift your walnut crackers into perfect alignment. The total cost of an Invisalign treatment varies with each customer (it can run anywhere from $2,000 to $8,000); this Groupon gets you $1,000 to put toward that final cost.
Acupuncture Associates offers a wide range of holistic services designed to help manage pain and stress. Acupuncture sessions are performed by the skilled and certified hands of Vincent Valeriano and customized to suit each patient's needs, lasting up to 45 minutes depending on the amount of treatment required. Using a series of tiny needles, acupuncturists promote blood flow to key areas of the body, which can help relieve pain and tension. The expert manipulation and placement of these needles may alleviate back and neck pain, migraine headaches, arthritis, tendonitis, and can aid in belly-button lint removal.
