The doctors at Hauser-Ross Eye Institute carry on the mission originally set forth by the husband-wife founders, Dr. Lynn Hauser and Dr. Neil Ross, more than 30 years ago. Though they draw on a range of technology that was unavailable three decades ago, they still work to treat all manner medical and aesthetic ocular issues. In their surgical center, they work over precise beams, performing LASIK procedures.

The team works to stay on top of the latest advances and technology to beautify eyes and make them good for something other than winking at trial juries.
Doctor Landon Pryor and his team of medical professionals enhance their clients' aesthetic appeal with cosmetic treatments that smooth skin and fight signs of aging. Laser energy removes unwanted hair on the body by heating the follicle and removes unsightly veins without disrupting neighboring tissues, prompting them to call the cops. Trained RNs inject crumpled skin with dermal fillers that plump surfaces or inhibit muscle activity that cause wrinkles. Meanwhile, cosmetic surgery lifts, reduces, or enhances specific body parts to build confidence and alleviate discomfort.
Fox River Periodontics is not a center for time travel, though its patients’ family and friends may think so. Among the many treatments available, dental implants performed by Dr. Kamy Noruzi seamlessly replace broken or damaged teeth, and injections of Botox temporarily ease the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. In addition to these treatments, Fox River Periodontics' futuristic-looking office also appears to deceive time. High-tech equipment and services—such as cone-beam computed 3-D scanners, digital radiography, and an audio-visual patient-education program—provide quick results and in-depth information for each patient, helping them make better treatment decisions and get the most appropriate care.
Dr. Scott Morris and his team of trusty enamel polishers brighten smiles with in-office Venus White treatments. The peroxide-infused whitening formula releases oxygen molecules to break up the bonds of stubborn stains and yellowing, minimizing the signs of tobacco or Crayola chewing. The dentist consults with each patient before the treatment to determine the length of treatment time, discuss whitening expectations, and customize a tray suited for each set of chompers. Venus White gel contains a mild desensitizing agent, which works to lessen post-bleaching soreness and feelings of melancholy every time someone forgets to floss. Patients can relax during treatments by watching a favorite movie on the in-office monitors or by grooving to personalized music.
