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.
At Action Chiropractic, Doctor of Chiropractic Brian Ewell extols the body's ability to heal itself. That's why, in helping patients overcome pain, he doesn't use any medications or surgical techniques. Instead, he locates the sources of pain during thorough evaluations and relieves them with gentle, low-risk adjustments and massages—noninvasive techniques that are informed by Dr. Ewell's more than 16 years of experience.
Licensed massage therapist Emily Sparks attended Eagle Gate College, where she perfected hands-on techniques such as Swedish massage, deep-tissue bodywork, and opening a pickle jar with one finger. Now in the comfort of her own Spark of Life massage suite, Emily can melt stress with a relaxation massage or apply firmer kneads to relieve muscle aches and spasms.
The dental experts at Genesis Dental tend to chompers with exams and cleanings, brighten smiles with Opalescence Boost teeth-whitening treatments, and customize veneers for a snug fit. Patients open wide for a comprehensive exam that susses out signs of cavities and disease, and a set of x-rays reveals any underlying issues that can’t be seen with the naked eye. A cleaning polishes mouth pearls, leaving patients with the shining grin of an open-mouthed walk through an automated car wash, but with less exposure on the local news.
General dentist Dr. Randy Roberts and his team gussy up grins with treatments lavished on chompers at their modern, glass-walled office. Chair-nestled patients open up during free consultations—conducted in English or Spanish—during which Dr. Roberts reads each tooth's star chart. Dr. Roberts belongs to both the national and state dental associations, and is certified in Invisalign, ClearCorrect, treatment planning, implant placement, and bone grafting.
