Dr. Ellen Turner and her staff of aestheticians, physician's assistants, and medical assistants are passionate about what they do. In a mini-documentary about their practice, they all chime in about unearthing their clients' inner beauty and enhancing their self-confidence. Through their treatments, which range from facials to treatments for acne and rosacea, they focus on making a difference in their patients' lives. A lot of times this means bringing about change that makes patients happy to look in mirrors and unwilling to hide their faces beneath brown paper bags.
A team of hairstylists, skin experts, and one talented nail technician works its aesthetic magic between Simplicity Salon & Spa’s deep-red walls and sleek-tiled floor. Always up-to-date on the latest styles, techniques, and booster shots, the salon’s stylists snip and color strands and add floor-sweeping length with extensions. The resident nail tech works nearby, treating tired dogs to an indulgent foot facial and decorating digits with nail art. Meanwhile, inside a private spa room, aestheticians and massage therapists erase stress with three types of facials, full-body salt scrubs, and Swedish, deep-tissue, and hot-stone massages.

Drs. Brian and E. Glenn Clark draw from a combined 40 years of dental experience to preserve gums and their enamel tenants. During the initial visit, x-rays lay bare oral predicaments such as bone loss and trapped peanut butter, employing a digital technique that uses less radiation than conventional radiography. A dental exam follows, in which a tooth technician ousts tartar, checks for cavities, and cleans tusks with professional care. During the second appointment, clients receive four 15-minute Zoom! whitening treatments, using trays prepared during the initial visit. A chair-side collaboration between whitening gel and Zoom! light penetrates stains and disarms discoloration with charming vaudevillian banter, restoring the teeth's burnish.
