A wildly successful alternative to traditional day spas—its more than 250 locations blanket 36 states and eight countries—Planet Beach Spa is a futuristic relaxation station where state-of-the-art machines administer all the spa and tanning services. These friendly automatons sometimes replace familiar treatments, as in the Luminous facial, a light-based service that delivers blemish-busting results similar to those of a conventional facial. But other equipment maps out new spa territory entirely: the Hydro-Derma Fusion chamber moisturizes the whole body with nutrient-rich steam in order to offset the effects of a dry climate or a rear-end collision with a salt truck. The range of services include total skincare, wellness, weight management, relaxation and renewal treatments. Other machines whiten teeth, spray-tan skin, and massage muscles. Planet Beach operates on a gym-style membership system, meaning that members purchase packages or pay flat monthly rates. As members spend more time at the spa, they get to know the helpful assistants who are always on hand to demonstrate how to use the equipment without activating its ability to cry.
El Dorado's card-carrying ADA dentists Drs. Adamos and Byun protect and polish teeth with extensive experience in orthodontic treatments and TMJ therapy, respectively. The staff of doctors and assistants go to great lengths to foster a comfortable, inviting atmosphere, remembering each patient by name, and greeting each new visitor with a warm pearly-white smile and a customized secret handshake. The good doctors constantly keep up to speed with up-and-coming practices, backing up routine cleanings, cosmetic treatments, and preventative care with sophisticated techniques.
Equipped with nearly 30 years of dental experience, Dr. Graham polishes, corrects, widens, and whitens grins across Stockton and San Joaquin County. His safe and proven teeth-whitening system begins with an initial consultation in Dr. Graham's chair, where he casts custom bleaching trays to ensure optimal fit, minimal discomfort, and full tooth coverage. Each tray will work as the delivery vehicle for the Opalescence whitening gel to needy teeth. Patients then take home their trusty trays to bleach teeth on their own time through a series of instruction-guided applications; when following proper procedure, patients typically notice brighter chompers within three weeks. Those with additional questions may approach Dr. Graham or any member of his friendly, accommodating staff, which provides a calming dental experience. Each visit is accented by modern office amenities, including televisions with cable to amuse patients while they wait.
Dr. Jasbir Cheema knows his way around general- and cosmetic-dentistry treatments and technology. His skill with Invisalign systems has earned him the status of being the number one and Super Elite Invisalign Provider status from the makers of Invisalign, who awarded him this designation as he's treated more than 3,500 patients with the clear braces and treats at least 500 Invisalign patients every six months. With the i-CAT 3-D cone-imaging system, he can peer into noggins to see his clients' tooth configurations with meticulous clarity. He and his team of managing and associate dentists use these technologies and more to reconstruct, straighten, clean, and whiten teeth in seven offices across California and one on Jupiter.

Outside the office, Dr. Jacobo serves on the board of the Boys & Girls Club and mentors local college students who are interested in becoming dentists.
