Since 1951, Berger Bros Cameras' knowledgeable staff have been emphasizing customer satisfaction as they match shoppers with a range of DSLRs and point-and-shoot cameras. With shelves lined with lenses, binoculars, and telescopes—along with cameras and accessories from quality brands such as Canon, Nikon, Leica, and Olympus—the shop can outfit photographers for any project. They also stock consumer- and professional-grade video cameras, as well as underwater equipment that makes it possible to document sea life or film a live-action Little Mermaid sequel.
The shop complements its wares with classes that teach customers to take full advantage of their complex cameras. Workshops and classes cover topics ranging from introductory photography to sports and wildlife photography, as well as the popular editing programs Photoshop or Lightroom.
Board-certified physician Dr. Joel Lamm has studied the human body at large, but he specializes in the body’s largest organ: the skin. He draws on dermatology training undertaken at Johns Hopkins Hospital—as well as his three decades of field experience—at his current practice, Dermatology Center of Long Island. There, he and his team finesse skin with an array of treatments, from Botox, Restylane, CosmoPlast, and other dermal fillers to laser hair removal. The center's photo-rejuvenation treatments combat sun damage, age spots, and other blemishes, such as the zits people draw on you when you fall asleep at parties. To further combat aging, the staff uses chemical peels and microdermabrasion to slough away tough outer skin, revealing brighter complexions below the surface.
ModernSmile's founder and head DDS Dr. Barbara Wachs has whitened the teeth of more than 10,000 clients over the course of her career, which has included appearances on QVC selling aftercare products. During in-office whitening treatments, clients kick back in plush chairs while Dr. Wachs protects lips and gums with a barrier material, then coats teeth with a patented whitening formula. When positioned beneath a UV-free laser light, the gel begins to activate, brightening teeth and kicking out coffee stains so they can do what they do best—make seventh-grade Constitution projects look legit. As a preferred Invisalign provider, Dr. Wachs is also able to nudge teeth into more aesthetic positions with the use of clear, custom trays. Both of these treatments take place in the confines of a modern dentist’s office complete with low-lit lamps, overstuffed couches, and spa-like accents.
