The licensed aestheticians at Sugar Baby Wax call their method of hair removal "hydration waxing." This is meant to differ from regular waxing—which they deem too irritating—and its secret lies in hydrating skin with a special pre-waxing "sauce" prior to treatment. Next comes Sugar Baby Wax's signature "Candy Paste Wax," which actually contains many of the same ingredients found in all-natural candy. This formula is applied to the skin, and hair is lifted from the treatment area with less pain and stress than traditional waxing. A moisturizing anti-bacterial treatment rounds out the appointment, which is always carried out in conditions of extreme sanitation. The aestheticians never double-dip or use old waxes, whether they're removing hair from brows, bikini areas, legs, or bottoms of feet.
Roca Dental’s father-and-son dentist team straightens teeth effectively and discreetly using the cutting-edge Invisalign system. After a thorough examination to verify the patient's oral health, teeth have their impressions taken and enjoy paparazzi attention with a photo shoot against a tropical backdrop. Photos are then rendered into 3-D images of mandibles, which doctors use to plan ivories’ shift to their desired final positions. The straightening process itself outfits chomper sets with custom-made plastic aligners, which are replaced every two weeks as they gradually push teeth into orderly ranks. Made of clear, smooth plastic, these tusk trays hold numerous clear advantages over traditional braces, including easy removal for brushing and eating and virtual invisibility to friends, crushes, and amorous magnets. The first set of plastic aligners is included with this Groupon, as are monthly checkups to note patient progress toward gorgeous grins.
Though the patients at CNS Dental are all human, you still might catch a glimpse of a german shepherd mix. Jacob can occasionally be found alongside Dr. Cara Schantz, calming patients at the office on his days off from working as a certified therapy dog. Dr. Schantz's altruism doesn't just extend to Jacob, who makes regular appearances at the Powhatan Nursing Home courtesy of Fairfax Pets on Wheels. She also volunteers her dental services to Mission of Mercy projects in Virginia.
Back at Dr. Schantz’s home base, shimmering aqua tiles, mod-style chairs, and golden chandeliers that resemble models of atoms at a school for rich children adorn the waiting room. The retro, space-age feel gives way to the simplicity and natural light of the treatment rooms, where patients open wide for cleanings and exams. Dr. Schantz spends the rest of her office hours performing cosmetic and restorative treatments. An onsite oral surgeon places implants, performs extractions, and treats temporomandibular joint (TMJ) issues.
When searching for a new dentist, patients prize a light touch almost as much as they do extensive training or whiz-bang technology. Fortunately, Tarek Mogharbel, DDS—who worked in District of Columbia General Hospital’s oral-surgery department and is a certified Invisalign and Lumineers practitioner—and his partner, Sun Park, DDS, both describe themselves as gentle people. This character trait translates to each of their cosmetic and family dentistry services. The doctors take special care no matter the procedure, whether it’s an exam for an anxious youngster, a teeth-whitening treatment for an adult, or a new set of porcelain veneers for a ventriloquist’s dummy locked in an eternal, unfeeling grin.
