Dr. Scarlett Logsdon and her professional staff keep smiles healthy and aesthetically pleasing through dental services that include crowns, bridges, and whitening treatments. They take care of developing teeth with pediatric dentistry, and preventative care such as regular cleanings enables them to ward off disease as teeth grow up and become defiant.
Research by the American Academy of Periodontics has found links between oral inflammation and many chronic diseases, including Alzheimer's and cardiovascular ailments. Regular exams, like the one you will receive at Elite Smiles, can help prevent these conditions and make sure your mouth is in tip-top shape. X-rays shine light on rooty toothstalks, exposing any cracks, cavities, and misplaced Micro Machines, and the complete teeth cleaning scrubs away all traces of tartar, plaque, and surface staining to prepare your teeth for the complimentary take-home whitening kit. If you go on to become an Elite regular, you'll also be entitled to free whitening gel twice a year with regularly scheduled checkups (up to a $700 value; call for details).
When one of the cofounders of Easy Balance Wellness Center and Spa was diagnosed with cancer in her 30s, her doctor put her on the most aggressive chemo and radiation therapies available. As her immune system fought the cancer, her body absorbed the side effects. A longtime friend recommended acupuncture to counteract the suffering; though she was initially skeptical of the holistic procedure, she agreed to give it a try. After just one appointment, she felt her senses awaken. Further treatments permanently changed the way she looked at health care, making her feel like a brand-new person and convincing her to share her discoveries with as many people as she could.
At Easy Balance Wellness Center and Spa, she does just that, combining venerated Eastern wisdom with professional spa products to deliver healing massages and rejuvenating facials. Within earth-toned treatment rooms draped with russet curtains, massage therapists ease muscle tension and redirect chi—the energy that regulates the body’s functions and suppresses its natural appetite for hangnails—with focused acupressure techniques. Thalgo facials employ marine botanicals, such as regenerative algae, to nourish and hydrate complexions.
