Dr. Michael Moore and an experienced team of dental professionals nurture oral health and cultivate confident smiles with personalized general and cosmetic dentistry at Moore Family Dental. Tooth technicians scan enamel with sanitized instruments during the comprehensive exam, pinpointing signs of tooth decay and gum disease and clues to buried treasure. Digital x-rays delve beneath the surface to identify deep-seated damage, and a skilled hygienist purges plaque with a thorough cleaning. The attentive staff also carefully checks oral tissue and necks to screen for early signs of oral cancer.
The dentists at Better Smile of WNY's two contemporary offices—including the newly opened Harlem Road location—use a combination of good old-fashioned know-how and the latest types of dental technologies to keep plaque, cavities, and tartar at bay. During appointments, they deploy digital X-rays, intraoral cameras, and a CEREC machine, which allows them to create full crowns, inlays, and veneers in just one visit. For those apprehensive of a visit to the dentist, the dentists use the Biolase laser system, which cuts back on the need for needles or the mule-powered jaw drills of yesteryear.
As the official dentist to the cheerleading Buffalo Jills, Dr. Douglas Hamill, DDS, calls on years of teaching and professional dental experience to assist his team during routine visits. First-time patients review their medical history, dental-health concerns, and favorite brand of floss with staff before receiving a comprehensive exam, including an evaluation of gum health, an oral-cancer screening, and a cosmetic evaluation. Next, a thorough cleaning brightens smiles and flushes away deposits of plaque, and a bitewing x-ray examines the teeth’s alignment and exposes any presence of decay.
Dr. Stewart Fenigstein has worn the title of “dentist” for nearly three decades. Over the years, his practice has adapted to new techniques and technology such as Zoom teeth whitening and Invisalign, but has always remained dedicated to providing clients with a caring environment. The first time Dr. Fenigstein meets patients, he takes time to lay down the foundation for a long-term relationship. He listens to their concerns, medical history, and perhaps a haiku or two they’ve composed about the office waiting room. Then, he becomes familiar with the patient’s mouth by scrutinizing teeth with his own eyes as well as with panoramic and bitewing x-rays.
The holistic gurus at Alternative Options Holistic Wellness believe that relaxation is key to maintaining a healthy mind and body. That’s why owner Jennifer Aranyosi—a trained nurse, certified reflexologist, and reiki master—and her massage therapists perform seven massage modalities, from the deep-tissue and myofascial techniques of a therapeutic massage to the pressure-point manipulation of shiatsu. The therapists also practice reiki, a "laying on hands" technique intended to stimulate the flow of internal energy so that clients don't have to inject espresso into their aortas.
Monique Jarvis is a licensed massage therapist, reiki master teacher, as well as an integrative reflexologist, specializing in trigger point, deep-tissue, and energy healing. As founder of The Massage Suite, Monique oversees a team of fully licensed massage therapists to alleviate tension with flowing Swedish strokes, hot stone therapy, and spa treatments ranging from Eminence brand facials and waxing to detoxifying body wraps. Clients may also solicit the spa for indulgent add-ons such as scalp treatments, reflexology, or help opening a stubborn pickle jar. The experienced therapists at this environmentally conscious spa offer a complimentary consultation with each service and are dedicated to using organic products.
Dr. Jack Bertolino, Smooth Solutions Medical Aesthetics's owner and operator, employs a slew of modern technologies to combat his patients' signs of aging. He zaps wrinkles, cellulite, and stretch marks with his arsenal of medical-grade lasers. Along with lasers, Dr. Bertolino offers bariatric medicine to aid weight loss. Dr. Bertolino is also one of the area's only practitioners to offer bioidentical hormone-replacement therapy, which introduces testosterone and estrogen back into aging bodies with time-release capsules implanted in the skin, helping men and women maintain their health, youth, and love of trampolines.
