Giving back to the community is something board-certified dentist Dr. Thomas Allen has been doing for decades. From the four years he spent with the US military in Vietnam to the numerous charities––including Halloween Candy Buy Back and Operation Gratitude––he supports through his dental office, All Family Dentistry, his service is apparent. He even gives his time as a professor at the University of Colorado, teaching soon-to-be dentists the techniques of modern dentistry and the tricks to changing a tire using only rubber bands meant for braces.
At All Family Dentistry, Dr. Allen and his skilled team enhance smiles with general and cosmetic dentistry, including crowns and bridges, Invisalign, and porcelain veneers. Advanced laser technology from Diagnodent helps promote safer dental procedures along with intraoral cameras, ultrasonic cleanings, and nitrous-oxide sedation. Each private treatment room comes affixed with a TV to help entertain and calm patients. Those experiencing high levels of anxiety can further be soothed with any of the office's anxiety-free options, including Dr. Allen singing songs in a choice voice.
Doctor of Chiropractic Jinger Kellams’s initial career path led her to a high-stress position in a law firm. The stress combined with epilepsy, chronic headaches, and frequent colds led her to quit her job, which happened on the very same day she had an appointment with a chiropractor. Her chiropractor offhandedly suggested that she become one herself, and Dr. Kellams took those words to heart. She began receiving regular chiropractic care, and since then, she hasn’t experienced a single seizure or headache and is rarely sick. Over her 10 years in practice, Dr. Kellams has striven to help clients fight many of the same issues that she once faced. Each appointment begins with a one-on-one consultation with the doctor to discuss concerns and the futility of man, followed by a physical examination to unearth the underlying causes of aches. Then she formulates a treatment plan, folding in such methods as therapeutic exercises and stretches, spinal adjustments, and cold-laser therapy. She also outlines weight-loss and nutrition plans and provides skincare services, including anti-aging microcurrent facials.
Barcelona's certified laser specialists use the LightShear laser system to permanently remove unwanted hair. To set off on a journey of stubble-free sleekness, choose between the traditional bikini area or underarm region and set up an initial consultation and treatment to blast away filaments in their follicular homes. Follow-up treatments take place a few weeks apart, permanently disabling hair follicles dormant in the initial session.
Murat Tercan has a world of salon experience?literally. The native Turk started out by helping his family open a salon in Ankara, then he went on to hone his craft at the L'Oreal Academy in Paris and the Wella and Schwarzkopf academies in Germany. He built his resume styling hair for fashion shows for Valentino, Versace, and Armani, later traveling as an international educator for L'Oreal.
Since making yet another home in Colorado, he opened his own space, Enchante, where he and his team perform advanced services such as designer haircuts, color corrections, and keratin treatments. In the spirit of Murat's background in education, stylists are committed to not just giving clients a style, but teaching them to maintain it. There's also an onsite spa where clients can retreat to receive Swedish massages and Dermalogica facials, or to ease their fear of scissors.
Like the time you spent in a bad relationship or trying to start an art collection of the world's best faxes, there are parts of your life you wish you could forget. But when relics of those days are inked into your skin, the past becomes harder to ignore. That’s why certified laser specialist Michael Scarpulla at Tat 2 Undo offers his skills and state-of-the-art lasers to fully erase unwanted tattoos. His Quanta Q-Plus C laser safely pulls out all colors of ink during quick sessions, cleanly removing unwanted designs, permanent makeup, or even road rash. The pain level is comparable to the level of discomfort when getting a tattoo, and the number of sessions required depends on the colors and type of ink used.
Inside a small brick building adorned with a chimney and green trim, Dave and Carol McEndaffer work amid lilac walls and potted plants. It’s a lovely setting for a couple in the business of beautifying people, which they have extensive experience in. The duo has owned salons throughout the past 37 years and added Laurels Salon of Distinction to their stable more than a decade ago. They've studied with seasoned stylists; while Dave focuses on hair, Carol pours her efforts into skin care, wellness, and restoration treatments for baldness and thinning hair.
In addition to cuts and ammonia-free color, they cosset their clientele with massages, spray tanning, and waxing. The salon is stationed across the street from Colorado State University, so it’s a convenient spot to de-stress after an exam or to cover your eyes with cucumbers before a scary PowerPoint presentation.
