Four bitewing x-rays help give in-depth blueprints of your pearl cave and insightful clues about missing car keys. Using nimble fingers and quality equipment, a specialist will round out your fang renewal with a complete cleaning procedure, which works carefully to de-gunk and burnish each chomper, all as you listen to music or watch movies using special virtual glasses. The comfortable, rejuvenating process will leave you with the shining grin of an open-mouthed walk through an automated car wash, but with less exposure on the local news. Call ahead to schedule an appointment.
In 1986, Dr. Vincinet Pennipede, O.D was fresh out of the military and opening up his first office off of Highway 69. There, he put in long hours and built a base of clients.

Patrons peruse each warmly-lit furnished studio's collection of frames from high-end labels such as Silhouette and Coach. In-office labs create futuristic lenses of high-index plastic or hybrid Trivex quickly for patrons who need to return to work or judge a beauty pageant for snowflakes. Children protect their new specs with the store's Kid's Promise warranty, and adults consult with experienced doctors on the benefits of refractive surgery and restorative treatments for aging eyes.
