Certified personal trainer Mechelle Haflich is familiar with both the highs and lows of physical health. As a bodybuilder, she has won competitions focused on superior strength, and as a registered massage therapist, she has eased injured muscles back into action. Both titles have proven essential in planning FitBody Studio, where she takes a holistic view on wellness through fitness, massage, and spa services. Alongside a team of highly credentialed instructors, therapists, and aestheticians, Mechelle's team adjusts her programs to suit each client's ambitions, which range from losing inches to being able to deadlift a locomotive.
On the exercise side of the curriculum, private training sessions and group classes build endurance—Vinyasa yoga and kickboxing sessions round out the stair climbs and cardio drills of the Bleachers class, which takes place inside the Colorado College football stadium. To repair overworked deltoids, the studio's massage programs relax tendons and target injuries with a mix of modalities. After workouts sculpt bodies, FitBody Studio’s spa polishes them smooth with waxing services and custom facials.
Drs. Siman, Diesing, and Gordon each have roughly 30 years of experience in dentistry. They draw from their wealth of knowledge to lavish patients with bright and healthy teeth, offering general, cosmetic, and surgical dentistry techniques. Since she started her career in 1985 ,Dr. Siman, the founder of the practice, estimates that she has treated several thousand patients, which means she’s woven millions of miles of dental floss. She was featured in a 2009 issue of Hour Detroit that praised her positive effect on patients' self-esteem. The same year Hour Detroit profiled Dr. Siman, it announced that both she and Dr. Diesing had been voted two of the area's best dentists—a distinction also bestowed upon the two of them by the Consumers Research Council of America.
At Astounding Bright Confident Smiles Dental Center, which is led by general dentist Dr. Charzetta Moore, the staff seeks to preserve the shine of its patients' smiles with a multifaceted approach to dentistry. The first line of defense is general and preventive care, which covers cleaning, periodontal health, and strategies for teeth to use in fighting off the Tooth Fairy. Should problems arise, Dr. Moore can perform extractions, create crowns, and help address issues such as sleep apnea. For patients who want more of a full-mouth makeover, Dr. Moore also offers braces and cosmetic services that can completely renovate teethscapes.
By using the latest technology to find abnormalities early, Dr. Nicole Meadows halts problems before they can become dangerous. To detect signs of oral cancer, she uses ViziLite, a handheld device that illuminates cancerous tissue in its earliest stages. For the best views of the whole mouth, she also uses intraoral cameras and digital x-rays. Besides technology, she knows that patient understanding is the best means of avoiding issues. Every client leaves with information on preventive measures and behaviors.
Dr. Aziza Askari's extensive training and gentle touch make her the cosmetic dentist of choice for nervous and unflappable patients alike. The staff at the studio focus on creating a spa like ambiance, practicing "calmistry", a technique used to pacify flustered patients. She and her team restore broken and stained smiles with veneers, crowns, and whitening treatments and maintain healthy mouths with cleanings and other preventative services. Lasers play a big role in the office and are used during procedures to reduce the need for drilling, gum swelling, and keep teeth clean. If the studio's spa-like atmosphere isn't enough to ease dentist chair jitters, she also offers oral and IV sedatives that make procedures feel like a nap in a giant mug of chamomile tea.

With state-of-the-art technology such as digital x-rays that give him the ability to see varying angles of teeth, as well as intraoral cameras that provide close up views, he makes use of all tools necessary to provide the correct and best dentistry he can.
