Since graduating from UC San Francisco's School of Dentistry, Dr. Nahid Saba has spent 15 years keeping mouths and teeth around the Bay Area healthy. She and her team of dental hygienists stay in step with the advancing science of dentistry through continuing education, and they perform preventive, cosmetic, and restorative treatments for children and adults. Whether they're replacing missing teeth with implants, straightening smiles with Invisalign?s clear plastic aligners, or installing new tongues that will use fewer curse words, the team puts patient comfort first and listen closely to clients' concerns.
Using Lumibrite Chairside Whitening and a Sapphire light, the trained staff at Tucker Dental Group creates stupefying smiles out of ill-shaded mouth stones. A technician coats teeth with hydrogen-peroxide-based whitening gel, which is fluoride-enriched to perk up flagging enamel even as the gel coaxes stains off of teeth and back to their home planet. Gentle Sapphire light activates the gel, whitening teeth up to 12 shades in an hour of treatment. Unlike buffing away stains with a belt sander, the procedure generally results in minimal discomfort afterward.
Dr. Titus Tang and his skilled staff improve smiles with personalized general and cosmetic dentistry in a comfortable office setting. During the dental exam, a tooth technician scrutinizes enamel and gums, scoping for signs of infection or decay, while x-rays unveil dental distress or molars secretly harboring Skittles. During a second visit, clients can relax with music or television during the thorough cleaning, which helps purge harmful plaque and bacteria.
Three thriving locations and a slew of press from outlets such as Teen Vogue and Fox News make a strong case for the success of LaBelle Day Spas & Salons. But the true testament to the salon and spa's success lies, quite literally, in the hands of owner and skincare specialist Bella Schneider. Bella is the winner of the Les Nouvelles Esthetiques Crystal Award and has spent almost four decades helping clients including Audrey Hepburn and Michelle Pfeiffer, obtain healthy, glowing complexions.
Her humble European background led her to the salon where she would receive an apprenticeship at the young age of 14. This moment became the catalyst to her skincare career, which included earning an Economics degree in the States before opening the first LaBelle Day Spa and Salon in 1976. And even though she added two more locations by the late 1980's, the mission for each beauty haven has remained the same: to provide European-quality treatments that are science-based.
Bella and her team—which includes her daughter and grandson—use her personally-formulated line of products to ensure effective results during each service, which range from vitamin-infused facials to mani-pedis enhanced by essential oils and advanced body-contouring Endermologie treatments. LaBella's team also guarantees an exceptional experience by offering spa guests a relaxing foot soak. In the salons, master stylists and colorists customized hair services by using advanced balayage and precision cutting techniques, while Pilates instructors teach private lessons so clients can perfect their posture, alignment, and grace.
Jill Dailey McIntosh has always been intrigued by the human body and how it moves?so much so that she graduated in 1991 with a kinesiology degree and soon thereafter decided to open her own Pilates teaching studio. But it wasn't until years later that this curiosity would manifest itself in a single question: "How can one aggressively transform the shape of their body while still maintaining proper alignment of the spine?" Eventually Jill began to examine her diverse fitness background, pulling low-impact movements from ballet, Pilates, and even orthopedic-exercise routines to create the basis for her fitness style, The Dailey Method.
Now, more than a decade later, Dailey's fitness routine has ballooned into studios sprawled across more than 10 states and gained praise from Self, Allure, FitPregnancy, and InStyle magazines. Regardless of the location, instructors remain true to Jill's mission of offering a diverse series of exercises that focus on toning and lengthening the body while lengthening the spine and building strong core muscles.
Drs. Sara Creighton and Jared Pool take on inter-grin ailments with freshly minted technology and equipment at Washington Square Park Dental. Inside the specially designed modern office, ceiling-mounted TVs captivate patients reclining in cushy black chairs as oral experts examine chompers and penetrate enamel or jammed office safes with handheld digital x-rays. The dentists drill in the importance of prevention and patient education as they clean teeth and scour mouths for disease. Also specializing in endodontic care, bridges, fillings, and cosmetic procedures such as whitening and veneers, staffers unearth healthy smiles gleaming like a freshly waxed crystal ball. The eco-friendly, LEED-certified space welcomes clients into a chic waiting area flooded with natural light and bordered by a cocoa-toned bench.
