Since 1992, United Dental Group has been building a network of specialized medical professionals across the world. With background-checked, CPR-certified dentists now in multiple branches across the country, the group has set its sights on global expansion, opening multiple centers in Korea. Each center maintains its commitment to quality by selecting staff with varied medical specialties and requiring them to obtain 15–30 continuing-education credits and 5 underwater-basket-weaving credits each year.
In addition to thorough, thoughtful patient care, United Dental Group is devoted to giving back to the community. Its charitable efforts began at its founding, when dentists offered free care to patients with hearing difficulties, and continue today with donations of medical devices to North Korea through the Red Cross.
Located in Garden Grove and Los Angeles, Pinebrook Acupuncture is devoted to treating each client holistically. With a belief in getting to the roots of problems instead of treating symptoms, the licensed acupuncturists here treat everything from migraines and depression to sports injuries, carpal tunnel syndrome, and chronic pain. Each patient is throughly examined before the acupuncture session begins. After the needles are painlessly inserted, the body's energy is redirected, reducing any possible energy blockages and helping provide relief from stress and pain.
In a spacious facility, Back4more’s staff helps clients ease back pain with its four-step program. BackFlex traction tables heat backs via far infrared rays while massaging acupressure points to relieve tightness in the lower back and shoulders, and doses of alkaline water help to balance pH levels. Clients not only receive treatment at Back4more but can also get physical in preventative back-care yoga classes. In a studio with natural-light illuminated hardwood floors, instructors guide students through Pa Kua yoga classes, which can boost energy, harmonize body and mind, and relieve stress. Before leaving the all-inclusive facility, clients can order from an array of home comfort products, including Inada chairs and mattresses. In addition to English, the bilingual staff also speaks Spanish.
Doctors of Chiropractic—and twin brothers—Daniel and David Clements share more in common than their parents, looks, and sentence halves; the two doctors also share the same philosophy on holistic health. Inspiration set in while attending Augsburg College on hockey scholarships, where the Canadian natives noticed the chiropractic treatments they were receiving helped keep them healthy and injury free. Experiencing this proactive approach to wellness motivated the duo to forego their premed path and pursue a chiropractic degree from Southern California University of Health Sciences instead.
At Twins Chiropractic, the brothers work with clients to find the most beneficial treatment plan, whether through regular adjustments, massages, or both. They also pack their website with informational resources to help patients make informed decisions or wile away the hours on a deserted beach.
Willowick Golf Course is known as the oldest 18-hole public golf course in Orange County. Competitive clubbers can try to knock the Willowick's 71 par from its looming overhead presence while aspiring artists use tiny pencils to sketch the weeping willows and quaint architecture in the periphery. Soar down the fairway with clubs extended in hopes that one of Willowick's sleek buggies will catch flight and ensure victory by knocking opposing orbs off-course.
Patients who visit Bankai Dental in need of a crown don't need to endure the rigmarole of wearing a temporary crown while the the dentist forages in the woods for the perfect one. That's because Dr. Khai M. Ma uses CEREC technology, which creates custom porcelain crowns in about an hour. And patients looking for crowns aren't the only ones who benefit from this technology: it also crafts inlays and onlays.
Aside from restorative and cosmetic dentistry, Dr. Ma and the team provide general services. Cleanings and exams are aided by the latest technology, allowing the dentist to unearth potential signs of decay early enough for preventive care. Chair-side whitening treatments wrap up visits on a pleasant note, as patients can walk out of the office with a smile 8–10 shades whiter than it was when they walked in.
