For nearly 30 years, Dr. Dreelin has mended and maintained chompers, enabling adults and children to flash brilliant smiles. A preliminary mouth inspection ensures teeth line up tidily and sit securely within gums, and digital x-rays allow hygienists to peer behind the enamel and verify internal tooth health. Next, a thorough cleaning banishes plaque and detritus lurking in mouth alleys, and a fluoride treatment leaves teeth strong enough to chew their way out of the most heavily guarded gingerbread house. A take-home whitening kit enhances grins with a powerful serum that whisks away stubborn coffee, red-wine, and nicotine stains, turning mouths into minty-fresh tabulae rasae.
Virginia Eye Consultants has been home to ophthalmic specialists since its 1963 founding by Dr. John W. Dickerson. Over time, the practice has grown to a staff of seven MDs, each board certified in their medical or surgical area of expertise. Current president Dr. John Sheppard holds extensive knowledge on the topics of corneal transplants and clinical research.
As a former contestant in the Mrs. Virginia pageant, owner Lesley Cook knows the impact seasoned professionals and top-notch products have on beauty. That's why she staffs Rejuvenation Day Spa with knowledgeable specialists ready to pamper clients with treatments fueled by Dermalogica products, which are free of common irritants and ingredients that often cause breakouts, such as artificial fragrances and pizza grease. A master aesthetician performs the spa's noninvasive Hollywood face-lift—which uses gentle microcurrent pulses and vitamin-enriched gels to soften and smooth skin—and professional Glam makeup artists beautify clients for special occasions. Because Rejuvenation Day Spa is located inside the Peninsula Pain and Rehab facility, clients can further their wellness with nearby chiropractic care and acupuncture.
The appendage attendants at DeStress Express spruce-up weathered digits with multistep nail treatments. The Open-Minded manicure and pedicure begins by immersing parched limbs in a warm soak before nail technicians prune overgrown cuticles. A scrub-fueled massage smoothes ashen skin and polish deposits decorate hands with less hassle than having them reupholstered. The Healing Ritual manicure and pedicure adds an extra step, following the massage with a creamy mask that infuses skin with rich moisture.
Voted for Best Dental by the Daily Press Choice Awards, City Center Dental Care fashions sparkling bright smiles with their professional whitening services. Beginning with a consultation, the experienced Dr. Bill Griffin and his team of dental dynamos check teeth thoroughly to ensure they can achieve maximum luminescence from the whitening process and haven’t been accused of biting local politicians. Mouth owners can then relax while the friendly specialists start the Opalescence Boost Whitening treatment, its lightening formula fortified with fluoride and potassium nitrate to help fight cavities and strengthen enamel. The evaluation and whitening process takes about two hours, after which customers will receive their custom-fit, take-home whitening trays, which help prolong sparkling smiles for page-a-day calendar shoots or power outages.
SmileLabs of Virginia's teeth-whitening experts empower visitors to go toe-to-toe against enamel discoloration with an arsenal of peroxide-based whitening gels, which have little to no effect on tooth sensitivity. During SmileLabs' signature, in-office treatments, patrons sit comfortably in a specially designed chair before wielding an easy-to-use brush applicator to coat their own gumstones in whitening gel. An LED lamp attached to the chair then shines cold blue light at food-destroyers to accelerate the gel's tooth-blanching ingredients. After the half-hour session, clients prepare to flash grins bright enough to temporarily blind an angry, rapidly approaching linebacker.

As a licensed master permanent cosmetic practitioner/aesthetician, Tammy complements her makeup services with other clinical treatments: eyelash enhancement, facials, peels, masks, and skin needling, a nonsurgical skin-rejuvenation technique that stokes collagen production to fill wrinkles and camouflage scars naturally.
