Lori Dennis attaches three titles to her name: licensed aesthetician, certified laser technician, and certified permanent-makeup artist. She studied extensively to snatch up these certifications, learning how to blend products and palliatives to perfectly complement skin chemistry, different skin types, and rubber president masks.

She's a master of resurfacing treatments—particularly microdermabrasion and chemical peels—and excels at delivering personalized results with facials and permanent makeup.

Inside a boutique adorned with black-and-white wallpaper and decorative splashes of purple and cream, Plush Hair Lounge's expert stylists and nail techs beautify clients with a range of hair and nail treatments.

Dr. Diane McConnehey helms Dermaesthetics, where she brings the swift retribution of a cosmetic laser to patients’ skincare challenges. Originally board certified in family medicine, Dr. McConnehey developed a deep interest in cosmetic dermatology, and, like an adolescent X-Man, has now been wielding a laser for 14 years. A thorough consultation precedes all cosmetic procedures and nonsurgical face-lifts, allowing the doctor to fully assess conditions, make well-informed recommendations, and show the patient applicable before-and-after photos.
At Lake Harbor Dentistry, Drs. Michael Peterson and Eric Ballou maintain teeth with general, restorative, and cosmetic treatments. Restorative procedures are a particular specialty, as both dentists wield the CEREC system to create and implant ceramic crowns in a single appointment. They also use advanced 3-D imaging to guide implant surgeries and practice IV sedation to limit discomfort. Beyond the office, both dentists stay active within the community—Dr. Peterson teaches CERC CAD/CAM courses for dental assistants, whereas Dr. Ballou has volunteered for the Wise MOM Project, a charity that provides dental services to those who may have difficulty affording them.
