Thirty years ago, Concerned Dental Care was founded with the philosophy that dentists should concern themselves with people first and foremost. The staff's dedication to their patients fueled the practice's growth, and today a team of dentists and hygienists adheres to that original vision as they set about their work tending to teeth at six different offices.
Friendly advice about oral hygiene accompanies each tooth cleaning. Low-radiation digital x-rays help the staff take a closer look at patients' dental health without shrinking themselves down and taking a hike through clients' molars. Then, the doctors work with their patients to address any problems by poring over the practice's sizable array of treatment options to find the right course of action. In addition to regular dental upkeep, the staff can shine up smiles with cosmetic services such as teeth whitening and porcelain veneers.

Pilates is for everyone. This is the idea behind Spencer Pilates Arts, where students of all abilities and ages study the fitness method made famous by Joseph H. Pilates.

Originally used by dancers and acrobats due to its many benefits, it's now employed by a wide range of fitness instructors. One of those instructors is Spencer Baker, who started out incorporating Pilates exercises into his job and now shares the core-strengthening method with his members at his center.
