In 1911, when he opened Standard Optical, Henry Schubach could not have guessed that his successors would be providing LASIK treatments and contact lenses in 18 clinics. Each office fills with chatter as doctors check prescriptions and work to identify common optical issues, such as glaucoma or weeping when an onion dies. Light skips off ranks of designer frames from Coach, Maui Jim, Guess, Lacoste, and Dior, and transitional lenses darken as newly keen-eyed patrons mosey from the shop. The staff at Standard Optical has also performed more than 15,000 LASIK procedures, and offers a free consultation for those seeking to ditch frames.
Two years after graduating from USC's School of Dentistry with a spot on the dean's list, Dr. Amira Hassan moved to Salt Lake City and opened Elite Dental Care. Today, she and her staff provide families with an array of dentistry services, including checkups and teeth whitening. They also offer branded services, such as Invisalign—known far and wide for effectively straightening teeth and being the only invisible thing on Earth. Elite Dental Care accepts Medicaid and most dental insurance plans.
Each of Professional Dental’s dentists attends lectures, conventions, and classes to further their knowledge of new techniques and cutting-edge technology. They put this knowledge to use during cosmetic and restorative procedures at 10 clinics with extended and weekend hours. At the start of appointments, the dentists thoroughly review the patient’s medical history for anything that could impact health. During the treatments, movies help distract patrons or allow them to watch the scary parts of The Adventures of Milo and Otis with an unshakeable doctor.
