There are several reasons why Dr. Samandari's patients at A Reason to Smile have no fear of metal dental tools. One is that he communicates openly and amiably with each guest, ensuring that they have a total understanding of what will happen during their visit. Another is that he offers conscious sedation for those who suffer from dentistry-related phobias. Perhaps the most relevant reason, however, is that the staff avoids using metal tools whenever possible—they can gently clean teeth with pressurized water instead.
The office's combination of friendliness and careful service results in smiles that are both healthy and genuine. The team administers medical and cosmetic treatments alike, from placing crowns to whitening teeth. They also specialize in tooth-colored fillings, which are less noticeable than metal fillings and far less likely to become magnetized and stick your head to the fridge. Beyond basic dentistry, Dr. Samandari has assembled certifications in Invisalign, implants, and oral surgery; he has also traveled to donate his services to patients in need in other countries, and regularly helps make care affordable for those who need it at home.

Scheduling a dental exam after years without seeing a dentist can seem intimidating. That's why Dr. Brannon Reed promises to treat all new patients with extra TLC and never to begin with anxiety-inducing lectures. After passing the reception area's colorful metallic artwork and desk made of stone and marble, patients relax in treatment rooms that look out across the fairways of a golf course. As Dr. Reed and his staff provide cosmetic and general treatments?using only mercury-free fillings when needed?they can also entertain themselves with movies or watch as private jets descend toward the nearby airpark, skywriting reminders to floss daily.
As they enter the training circle at Curves, female guests come face-to-face with the smiles of other women. And just as points on a circle share a common distance from the circle's center, workout participants share the experiences of those nearby by trading stations throughout the 30-minute training session. One minute is spent on a piece of strength-training equipment built for feminine frames and designed to work two opposing muscle groups with a single movement. Exercisers then move on to a recovery station, where they run, jog, or dance to maintain heart rates and keep platforms in place during momentary losses of gravity.
