The continually educated mouth specialists of Sunshine Dental keep smiles healthy with a tag team of preventative dentistry and modern technology. During the appointment, a licensed dentist scours the mouth for signs of decay, cavities, and lost gummy bears (a $97 value) with an attention to detail normally only exhibited by pickleball referees. X-rays, including four bitewings, an extraoral, and a panoramic (a $234 total value), allow the certified tooth whisperer to inspect cuisine crushers in greater depth in a set of black-and-white snapshots. Take-home whitening treatments evict the yellow from teeth with stain-fighting bleach and a sheriff-delivered court order. Mouths that return dutifully to the dental office every six months for a checkup receive additional treatments for free.

Dr. Mikhail Burakovskiy's expertise in podiatry has earned him not one, not two, but three certifications from the American Board of Multiple Specialties—in primary care, in podiatric surgery, and in the prevention and treatment of diabetic foot wounds and diabetic footwear. It is this expertise⎯along with his skills with laser systems, injections, and surgical tools to alleviate foot problems such as bunions, ankle pain, and toenail fungus⎯that has helped him become the footcare specialist of fellow doctors.
Dr. Burakovskiy has also been featured on King 5 News as a podiatrist who doesn't chide women for wearing high heels, instead offering foot-pillow injections that create extra padding in the ball of the foot to reduce pain more efficiently than wrapping feet in bubble wrap. He is joined by Dr. Jacqueline Buckley, a Seattle native who has trained in foot and ankle surgery, podiatric medicine, and wound care. She attended Clark Atlanta University and the New York College of Podiatric Medicine, and has researched cadaveric achilles tendon transplantation, tendon repair, and amnion.
Licensed naturopathic physician Dr. Leny Eidsmore of Highlands Naturopathic Physician often fuses botanical remedies and Chinese medicine to help bring bodies into balance, but she doesn't ignore the role of technology in healing.

From there, she may prescribe custom nutritional plans or begin aesthetic treatments, such as reducing cellulite with detoxification and radio-frequency therapy or minimizing rosacea and acne with IPL treatments.
