Board certified state licensed chiropractor Dr. Mark McNally became fascinated with the human body after injuring his own as a high-school athlete. He enlisted a chiropractor to help dispel his symptoms and get him back on the field. As he regained his strength and mobility through the alternative discipline, he studied its philosophy, intrigued by how it encouraged the body to heal without drugs or surgery.

Today, Dr. Mark runs his own office in hopes of passing on the same benefits he experienced as a teen. He administers spinal screenings, exams, and adjustments, striving to reduce pain and realign vertebrae that have moved out of place. His practice is holistic in scope—he also provides therapeutic exercises that can be performed at home, as well as lifestyle advice, all of which is informed by his experience as a National Academy of Sports Medicine personal trainer. His deep background in nutritional counseling also guides clients to establishing healthier habits.

When she set about choosing a career, Dr. Purvi Thakkar knew she wanted one where she could make a difference each day. At Lotus Dental Care, the dentist achieves just that by giving both children and adults dental care that covers the full spectrum of oral health, including general preventative care as well as intricate procedures such as implants and the crafting of bridges without the use of tollbooths. To ensure effectiveness and patient comfort, the dentist employs the latest technology, including digital x-rays that reduce patients? exposure to radiation and rotary endodontics that expedite root canals while making the process gentler. She also understands that the aesthetic of a person?s smile makes a big difference in his or her life, so Dr. Thakkar carefully carries out cosmetic treatments such as Venus White max teeth whitenings with the same attention to detail she uses for other oral health care.
