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.
The staffers at Bronze Boutique don?t just oversee the operation of standup and lie-down UV tanning beds and applications of Infinity Sun airbrush tans?they also tend to clients' nails, hair, and even teeth. In the salon, stylists insert microlink and clip-in extensions or add streaks of color to lend depth to a hairstyle. During spa services, skin specialists remove brow hair with threading and exfoliate away dead skin cells with microdermabrasion and pumpkin chemical peels. When exposed to a special blue light, another chemical solution, BleachBright's peroxide whitening gel, lightens teeth so they twinkle like Santa's eyes do when the midnight polar sun isn't blinding them.
Dr. Diana Batoon?the wizard behind the curtain at Bonita Dental? refurbishes smiles using her expertise in dental-implant restoration, TMJ, and full-mouth rehabilitation. She also performs cosmetic treatments that get people smiling again, including brightening teeth with Invisalign treatments and hiding unsightly chips and major stains with porcelain veneers. When she is not in the office, Dr. Batoon takes her expertise to the streets by spreading the importance of good oral health during seminars and particularly long elevator rides.
