The Institute of Esthetic Dentistry is a multispecialty practice, which means that unlike most general-dentistry practices, it houses all of its specialists under one roof, so patients can avoid the inconvenience of going to multiple places for various treatments. Its specialists include Dr. Gregg Welsh, an oral and maxillofacial surgeon certified in using general anesthesia, Dr. Dean Ahmad, a board-certified periodontist, and Dr. Donna Galante, a board-certified orthodontist who is ranked by the company that owns the rights to Invisalign as an Elite Preferred Provider—someone who is in the top 1% of Invisalign providers.
The aptly named institute also has an on-site education center that hosts professional seminars, study-group sessions, and live patient demonstrations, so the in-house specialists have ample opportunities to gain more clinical experience and pass notes about which molar is the cutest. The aesthetics part of the practice's name comes from the cosmetic and aesthetic dentistry services performed there, as well as from office's tribal-art decorations and arched ceilings painted to look like clouds.
When sharing his fitness expertise with Village Life, Anthony Adedipe lauded the effects of exercise, maintaining that physical activity "releases endorphins" and "keeps you energized." The certified trainer is distinctively knowledgeable on matters of fitness and health due to his lifetime of athletic experience, his years playing college football, and a decade working in the fitness industry. Anthony brings this wealth of knowledge and experience to his branch of the nationally accredited Adventure Boot Camp, where he and his staff of certified trainers lead women through imaginative, high-intensity workouts. The coaches conduct classes outdoors at Washington Park and occasionally take class field trips to special locations, mixing things up by jogging through a forest or confusing security guards by crab walking through the airport. In addition to fitness instruction, trainers provide members with nutritional advice and pre- and post-measurements.
