Protecting smiles is a time-honored practice. However, Dr. Heather Stamm and Dr. Kai Kawasugi take a modern approach to this practice by embracing cutting-edge technologies whenever possible. The dentists and their staff are capable of providing general as well as cosmetic care, either catching troublesome conditions early and preventing them from becoming larger issues or correcting existing signs of damage, all with the use of modern dental technology. The E4D system, for example, creates custom-fit crowns, inlays, overlays, and veneers on the same day as the patient's initial visit. Medical-grade lasers can whiten teeth or remove cavities. Additionally, Dr. Stramm and Dr. Kawasugi can use tiny cameras to show patients the insides of their mouths or the interior of a tube of toothpaste. Although these options only represent a handful of the services available at Stamm Dental, the doctors always maintain their commitment to use advanced technology and compassionate care to make patients feel as comfortable as possible.
Run by Drs. Mark, Ben, and Rena Mollner, Mollner Dentistry is truly a family affair. Originally founded by Mark, the practice opened a new location in Denver with his son, Ben, and daughter-in-law, Rena, newly married and ready to practice their craft. In addition to a family name, the three also share a love of cutting-edge technology and have equipped their space with dental tools such as LED-topped drills and CAD/CAM porcelain-crown technology, and patient comforts including flat-screen monitors. Together, they have worked on more than 500 successful Invisalign cases.
As patients recline in comfortable leather chairs, they pass pretreatment minutes peering out of full-wall windows that look out at a sprawling mountain landscape. In the midst of this open atmosphere, the trio of dentists stays busy, performing tasks ranging from basic tooth maintenance including fillings and crowns to beautifying treatments such as cosmetic bleaching and veneers. They’re also equipped to deal with oral trauma or damage, and can complete root-canal therapy, oral surgery, and fracture repair onsite.
The cold, blue lights that shine inside Screamin’ White Teeth’s office are not for decoration. Each one emits a wavelength of exactly 465 nanometers—the most effective wavelength for activating the hydrogen-peroxide gel used to whiten teeth. The trained staff slathers teeth in this gel during 15-minute whitening sessions, performing up to three consecutive treatments to reveal the most noticeable results. Previous patients have seen teeth lighten more than eight shades after a triple appointment. The whitening formula used at Screamin’ White Teeth is both safe and effective on natural teeth, as well as veneers, caps, crowns, and dentures made with Chiclets.
Joy Hewitt Kind and Regina Rodriguez both have a personal passion for helping women in need. Channeling the healing powers of acupuncture and massage, respectively, the two have come together to create Harmony's Family Cooperative, an all-encompassing holistic care center that houses Comfort & Joy Oriental Medicine and helps women relax with massage and acupuncture sessions designed specifically for them. The spa aims to ease the burden on mothers and mothers-to-be through treatments that address fertility problems, postpartum issues, and malaise from the stress of early motherhood, as well as fending off any hired muscle from unpaid storks. They also teach classes that prepare expectant mothers and help keep them level-headed through the early months after giving birth.
Nail technician Tatiana Varava pampers her clients with manicures and pedicures. But she does more than hydrate hands, apply chip-free polish, and carefully remove finger traps. Thanks to her travels around the globe and her fashion studies at London Fashion and Image Design School, the Moscow native also serves as the spa's image consultant.
Tatiana's coworkers often draw on her expertise to make their treatments just a little more stylish. Even if she doesn't perform them directly, her influence extends to treatments that include European facials, deep-tissue massages, and wedding-day makeup applications.
Steve and Kim Weiner take pride in their ability to mesh medical-grade wellness treatments with a relaxing, spa-like atmosphere. The co-owners began their careers as an aesthetic equipment salesman and a paramedical aesthetician respectively, giving them extensive professional insight into the role that technology can play in rejuvenating clients? appearances. Their spa embraces some of these technologically based treatments, including infrared body wraps, teeth whitening and hair removal with cosmetic laser systems, and lipotron skin-tightening sessions, which use radio frequencies to firm skin tone and broadcast warning messages to crow?s-feet. The center also offers basic spa treatments, such as massages and deep-cleansing facials.
