Run by an award-winning father-son team, the experienced staff of 11 dentists at Kennedy Dental Care brings gum ornaments into meticulous alignment. One of the pearly white specialists commences the 45-minute evaluation ($39) with a careful naked-eye inspection of dental alignment before escorting molar-holders to the x-ray machine for a further assessment ($165). Finally, patients will be coaxed to sink their teeth into a diagnostic cast ($98), which once hardened, will provide a third measure of oral orderliness to assist the dentist in making recommendations for treatment or unique jaw-shaped ashtrays.
As one of the premier teeth whitening lounges in the region, I Heart White Teeth tasks itself with keeping teeth gleaming white with its proprietary teeth-whitening system in a serene atmosphere. The peroxide gel works its magic over the course of two 20-minute sessions, each extracting a progressively deeper set of stains and remnants from layer cakes. Aside from its whitening properties, the gel boasts a mineral-rich formula that fortifies dental enamel.
The team of aestheticians at Paradise Spa takes a holistic approach to inner and outer beauty. Staffers don’t just custom blend masks for facials and pamper feet with whirlpool baths during pedicures; they also ensure that clients’ inner health is taken care of with holistic wellness sessions that can balance chakras, develop spiritual awareness, and ease emotional blockages. The spa’s hydrotherapy sessions tend to muscles and nerves simultaneously by combining warm, bubbling waters with aromatic herbal blends of lavender, eucalyptus, and rosemary. Underwater LED color-light therapy, a contemporary healing technique, enhances the baths without the hassle of lassoing a rainbow and yanking it into the tub.
The spa’s licensed massage therapists take over to knead muscles using Swedish, hot-stone, and deep-tissue techniques as well as to guide clients through the stretching of Thai yoga massage. During a full day at the spa, clients can pair one of these massages with a full-body exfoliation or a body wrap made with natural ingredients, such as blueberries or moor mud. The relaxation marathons unfold against the backdrop of the spa’s golden walls, potted plants, soft lighting, and quiet music.
Vera Auvil's passion in life has always been cultivating knick-knacks and odds-and-ends—her "sweet nothings," as her husband used to say—so when the opportunity to purchase her own store came her way, she knew she wanted to fill its shelves and aisles with her favorite little things: clothes, jewelry, home décor, and makeup. She christened the shop Auvil's Sweet Nothings and set to work cultivating local artisans and national vendors who proffer goods such as De Novo, Waterford crystal, and Yellow Box Shoes. The skilled staffers at her vendor-based store can even help clients brighten smiles with Beaming White teeth-whitening services, make-over mugs with Jane Iredale cosmetics, and learn to cheat during shopping-cart races.
