The massage therapists and aesthetician at Spa Dew perform treatments that combine Eastern and Western sensibilities—all within a tranquil, nature-inspired ambiance. The 5,000-square-foot space boasts a reception area with a waterfall and groupings of plants and flowers bring the outdoors in, as does a wall decorated with variously sized tree cross sections. The water fountain in the hallway further nods to nature, and leads to a steam room and spacious relaxation rooms for women and men.
A privacy suite allows couples to share time in a sauna and get a side-by-side Korean-style scrub or a massage with heated stones. The beauty experts also use nature-based products including sea salt, Dead Sea mud, and Decleor essential oils, which are free of harsh chemicals and animal derivatives such as unicorn tears.
At Metropolitan Dental Associates, patients may never encounter a drill or receive a shot. That’s because Dr. S.M. Zeino has replaced his metal drill for a Biolase laser, a tool that safely and accurately remove cavities and decay without generating heat. Without vibrations threatening to crack a tooth or generate noise, patients can rest easy in the chair while listening to music or the dentist making drill sounds with his mouth.
In addition to drilling cavities with a laser, Dr. Zeino performs the full spectrum of general and cosmetic services. He draws on more than 20 years of experience to contour gums, lift stains, and straighten teeth secretly with clear braces.
At ProSmiles Cosmetic Dentistry, Dr. Lena Andriescu and Dr. Mircea Andriescu keep teeth healthy with preventative care, fillings, and root canals—but that’s just the beginning. Their general dentistry lays the foundation for cosmetic treatments, which beautify smiles more effectively than mustache perms. Invisalign treatments, for example, unobtrusively straighten teeth with transparent aligners and Zoom! whitening treatments, meanwhile, lift persistent stains. During any treatment, optional conscious sedation is available to relax nervous clients. Furthermore, both doctors pride themselves on their gentle, friendly demeanors and comforting bedside manner, and Dr. Mircea Andriescu has even been known to incorporate his DJ talents into his sessions to entertain and relax his clients.
A visit to the dentist. For years, it's been a go-to cliche for anyone grasping to describe a supposedly unpleasant experience. At Mint Dental, things are different. Here, clients rest easy as Dr. Young Kim and his staff of experienced technicians keep smiles healthy with advanced dental equipment and treatments. After a warm welcome, clients settle into cushioned dental chairs, where the dentist examines teeth with digital x-rays and intra-oral cameras and hygienists deliver preventative care services such as cleanings. In addition to run-of-the-mill tooth-saving procedures, the team is also trained in more complicated treatments, from restoring teeth with crowns and Invisalign braces to carefully untying knotted tongues.
Dentists Elizabeth Sandoval and Irma Torres work with their staff of trained tooth techs to shine up clients’ chompers. The 45-minute appointment kicks off as a dental guru pokes, prods, and administers a polygraph test to each tooth to search out signs of hidden disease or decay. Patients then relax as a thorough prophy jet cleaning washes away plaque and tartar buildup, leaving mouth pearls smooth and shiny. Digital x-rays further inspects cuspids for cavities and contraband lollipops.
