A friendly staff stands ready to introduce bronzers to custom Norvell spray tans through a wide selection of basic to high-pressure tanning beds as well as DaVinci teeth-whitening treatments. Premier packages grant tanners unlimited access to Sunna’s assortment of standup and lie-down beds, including models with facial tanners, ideal for fostering base tans, and beds with built-in fans that keep climates comfortable and inhospitable to Viking invaders. Alternatively, the tanning technicians can custom-blend the Norvell UV spray-tan solution to find the best golden hue for each body. The staff then deftly deliver even coats of color that can last for up to 10 days, using nozzles that help remove uneven tan lines caused by falling asleep beneath a ladder. Each private room stores a host of amenities, including a remote-controlled stereo system as well as fresh towels and lotions.
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.

After graduating from the University of Minnesota Dental School in 2006, Dr. Max Barsky didn't rest on his laurels. Instead, he extended his education by five years, taking post-graduate courses in aesthetic dentistry. That extra training gave him insight that now helps many of his patients, including knowledge of how the appearance of teeth relates to the overall shape of the face. That's just one of the extra ways Dr. Barksy attends to his patients and is always part of his thinking when he's performing checkups, installing implants, fitting braces, and figuring out who took a bite of his sandwich.
