In 1996, Drs. Grace Liu and Lewis Yu graduated from dental school and embarked on furthering their education: she completed postgraduate work at Columbia University and he trained in oral surgery at the University of Pennsylvania's hospital. After amassing a wealth of knowledge and experience, the pair married and started All About Smiles.
Their newly renovated ultra-modern clinic boasts cutting-edge technology such as intra-oral cameras, a VELScope for oral-cancer screenings, and sleep apnea screening equipment. With assistance from their friendly and highly-trained staff, the dental duo help clients care for their smiles with a wide range of treatments, ranging from basic cleanings and orthodontic care to oral surgeries and installations of crowns, veneers, bridges, and neuromuscular dentistry.
Doctor of Chiropractic Stacy Cohen founded First State Health & Wellness shortly after he received his degree from New York Chiropractic College in 1984. Since then, his center has expanded to six locations and welcomed aboard 12 other chiropractic physicians.
Each location features traditional adjustment techniques and Activator tools that rapidly and gently prod trouble spots. A few locations feature specialty techniques such as the Newark location's high-tech subluxation scanning and the Wilmington location's adjustable Thompson Terminal Point table made up of several different cushions that help it morph into an even more therapeutic surface: a ping-pong table.
Dr. Cohen and his staff complement their chiropractic touch with acupuncture, massage, and nutritional counseling services, which are overseen by the center's own licensed acupuncturists and certified massage therapists. Together, the team's collective efforts have been awarded The News Journal's Reader's Choice Award for Best Chiropractic Office in 2010, 2011, and 2012, as well as the BBB's Torch Award for Marketplace Ethics in 2003 and 2009.
