Headed by veteran dental professional Dr. Kathleen Foster, Diamond Valley Dental Care keeps mouths squeaky clean in a comfortable, professional setting. A mouth exam gives chompers a fastidious once over, helping uncover toothy troubles such as enamel decay, gum disease, and feral populations of animal crackers. Bitewing and full-mouth x-rays augment the visual recon, revealing hidden cavities and creating a detailed dental map for future visits. The thorough cleaning gently restores mouths to immaculate cleanliness, lifting away plaque and tartar from tarnished pearly whites. Treatments take place in an open, friendly atmosphere, and the practice’s staff is dedicated to explaining treatment options and answering patients’ questions, so that no one has to go home wondering where cavities come from or why molars and incisors have such a turbulent relationship.
At River Bend Dental Group, board-certified dentists Dr. Donald Eblen and Dr. Thomas Salmon Jr. and their tooth techs strive to improve the shine and width of grins. Examiners scrutinize each tooth for signs of disease or unpatriotic sentiments, then thoroughly cleanse cuspid surfaces of plaque, tartar, and the enamel doodles of less professional dentists. A set of commemorative x-rays preserve toothsome images for dentists' and grandchildren's perusal, then are used to create custom trays. At home, patients can continue improving smiles with a combination of the trays and NiteWhite bleaching gel.

After graduating dental school, doctors Nissa and Paul McConnell spent time in active duty as dentists with the U.S. Army. Today, at Heritage Family Dental, they've taken on a different kind of duty: providing an alternative to impersonal corporate dental chains. Inside their cozy Evansville office, Nissa and Paul strive to build their legacy around traditional family values. Of course, they also build that legacy around their handy dental work, with their services covering everything from braces and bridges to implants, crowns, and emergency dental procedures.
With an interest in natural remedies, Dr. Edward Meiggs earned a doctorate in naturopathy and is a doctor of traditional Greek medicine, also serving as an alternative-medicine columnist for Examiner.com. Today, he uses his bedside manner and healing techniques at A.R.T. Health, where he and his team treat clients with Manual Therapy, and alternative medicine. They specialize in therapeutic techniques such as reflexology and acupressure, both of which seek to release tension by manipulating pressure points and encouraging clients to stop giving piggyback rides to lazy shadows.
The medical staff at Laser Slim harnesses FDA-approved Zerona cold-laser technology, designed to slim bodies by up to 3–9 inches. Low-light lasers break down adipose tissue, releasing fat from the fat cells into the body, where it can then be absorbed by the lymphatic system and expelled through the body’s natural detoxification process. The noninvasive treatment does not require any recovery time. Patients can boost results with healthy eating habits, daily exercise, and regular hydration. Caffeine and alcohol should also be avoided.
