After a family trip to Hawaii inspired Spa Escape's signature Marine Mud detoxifying mask, the spa's owners worked to build a menu of services that similarly combined relaxation with a results-driven approach. Their trained staff of therapists and aestheticians helped a great deal in this mission, calling upon years of experience to develop a range of treatments to beautify and relax the body. Though the Marine Mud mask still serves as an ever-popular anchor, the spa's menu now encompasses exfoliating facials, waxing treatments, and massage therapy. Should stresses prove insusceptible to the therapists' targeted strokes and whispered rumors that your shoulders are haunted, the spa's packages grant up to a half-day of relaxation with multiple treatments.
Even after Drs. Derek Hyun and Ruby Ann Dollins graduated from their respective dental schools, their educations were far from over. The dentists stay abreast of the latest technologies through courses at Nobel Biocare, Osstem Implant, and Las Vegas Institute for Advanced Dental Studies. At Bel Villaggio Dental, they specialize in full-mouth reconstruction and cosmetic dentistry, employing Invisalign treatments to straighten smiles and Zoom! whitening treatments to remove unsightly stains and dental tattoos.
While they're keeping teeth white, the dentists are also keeping Bel Villaggio Dental green. The office is mercury-free, uses high-quality materials or all-ceramic restorations, rather than nonprecious metals, and follows strict mercury-removal protocol. In addition, the office's digital x-rays emit up to 90% less radiation than traditional x-rays.
The silver and gilt-edged mirrors of Salon O are pretty enough on their own. However, they're there to serve a purpose—reflecting the stylish hair designs of the salon's skilled stylists and color specialists. Stylists such as Erin Fargo transform manes into works of art with subtle ombre or reverse ombre color, sleek styles and cuts, and Babe hair extensions. They can also offer recommendations to improve the health and beauty of a client's hair, such as brushing it with an apple a day. As guests await appointments, they can sit beneath an elegant chandelier, peruse the salon's extensive selection of products, or ask stylists to regale them with tales of their 2010 Cut-A-Thon, in which the staff raised money for breast cancer research.
Dr. Daniel Javaheri leads a team of dental experts in correcting shoddy smiles with a wide array of cosmetic and preventative services performed in a spa-like office. Dr. Javaheri promotes overall patient wellness using advanced technology, including safe sedation and digital x-rays, which emit much less radiation than Lex Luthor?s kryptonite-flavored toothpaste. Smiles by Design uses composite fillings that match natural tooth coloring, and the dentists have also mastered dental implants, bridges, and crowns to isolate and repair unsightly damage to pearly whites. While patients wait for mouth refurbishings, the office lavishes them with paraffin hand treatments, heated blankets, and liquid refreshments from a beverage bar.
One moment, Dr. Coleman was standing tall on the lake’s water, balancing on wooden skis as water splayed behind him like a rooster tail. The next moment, he crashed headfirst into the water, cracking his front teeth on the way down. It wasn’t until four years later that Dr. Coleman regained his smile, an experience that left him yearning to study dentistry.
Now at the helm of Coleman Dentistry, Dr. Coleman works hard to pass on that feeling of being able to grin with confidence in a comfortable environment. Slight bubbling sounds drift from a hanging fountain in the waiting room, inducing daydreams of faraway lagoons or scuba divers singing Frank Sinatra. During appointments, patients sink into a heated massage chair, swaddle themselves in warm blankets, or watch flat-screen TVs inside the treatment room. Other perks include dark sunglasses, earplugs, and afternoon wines to cap off clean bills of dental health.
Growing up in a small town in rural Nebraska, Scott Krause, DDS, learned not only the value of hard work, but also the importance of helping others. The compassionate dentist has made multiple volunteer trips to Mexico, Bangladesh, and Tanzania to restore underserved people's smiles and self-confidence. During a recent journey to a Kenyan orphanage, Dr. Krause and his team performed 175 procedures for 108 patients in need.
His passion for service also extends to his patients at home. Dr. Krause continuously attends dental lectures and conventions to stay ahead of the latest restorative and cosmetic procedures. He beautifies grins with daVinci veneers, clear Invisalign aligners, and durable Empress crowns, whose heat-pressed glass-ceramic material can withstand years of mistaking bowls full of decorative rocks for candy.
