The Kentucky Center for Orthodontics’ trio of doctors all got into orthodontics when they realized just how much a great smile can improve someone’s life. Dr. Douglas Durbin, the inventor of the Flosspik polypropylene interproximal dental cleaner, Dr. Thomas Garner, and Dr. John Huang enhance the smiles of both children and adults with Invisalign treatments, braces with clear brackets, and invisible retainers glued to the back of teeth. They use digital imaging to construct treatment plans, they avoid headgear whenever possible, and they never just pull out a tooth when it won’t cooperate. Under their steady hands, The Kentucky Center for Orthodontics has straightened the teeth of more than 35,000 patients, including Miss Kentucky USA 2009 Maria Montgomery.

Once clients are comfortably ensconced in the dentist's chairthe oral exam begins. The resident toothsperts will check each individual incisor, cuspid, bicuspid, and molar for chips, cracks, staining, and loitering Minnesota Twins, ensuring that enamel bones are sound for biting, and gums and soft tissues will be inspected for any signs of periodontal disease. The x-ray battery exposes the roots and inner sanctums of oral stalagmites to reveal any soft spots, problem areas, or cavities. When your mouth checks out as mammalian and your teeth are cleared for take-off, the professional teeth cleaning begins. An expert cleaning removes all the buildup and surface staining that regular brushing and flossing can't—hardened tartar, hard-to-reach plaque, and bacterial graffiti along the gum line.
The aestheticians at Bloom Salon & Body Spa present clients with non-invasive alternatives to cosmetic surgery. Instead of liposuction, they melt away inches with Lipolaser treatments. Instead of facelifts, they tighten the skin naturally by stimulating the muscles underneath. Since these techniques keep the scalpel in the drawer, they spare clients the long recovery periods required after more taxing options, such as surgery or witchcraft.
In addition to their technological beauty techniques, the team also augments appearances and pampers patrons with facials and a full menu of hair services. Six types of massages scold away stress with relaxation tools such as hot stones and grapefruit foot scrubs.
