No matter where they are in the country, clients of Dental Professionals of Virginia and Maryland and Neibauer Dental Care are bound to find a dentist just as skilled as the one at home. That’s because more than 400 offices in 19 states are affiliated with the dental network, whose administrative support, guiding principles, and focus on continuing education ensure that their dentists will be talented wherever they work. The company also strives for community improvement—they’ve contributed more than $250,000 to such charities as the American Red Cross, The Oral Cancer Foundation, and the Smiles for Life campaign.
The doctors and staff at Gentle Dental Care & Orthodontic Care cover every corner of the dental spectrum with traditional preventive-care methods and a stable of high-tech apparatuses. The team's general tooth-healers keep smiles brightly beaming by purging plaque, tartar, and stowaway tooth fairies during regular cleanings, and exposing hidden cavities or gum disease with digital x-rays. Teeth in need of extra help can turn to the center's resident endodontist, periodontist, and orthodontist, all of whom specialize in restoring teeth with medical problems to a healthier state. During each appointment, dentists and their assistants consult with patients to ensure visitors go into treatment comfortable and familiar with their procedure. The offices of Gentle Dental Care & Orthodontic Care boast advanced equipment to enhance treatments such as tooth whitening, braces, and tooth implants, all of which stay safe and sterile with thorough sanitizing and bubble-wrap packaging.
Using a combination of whitening gel and FDA-approved blue accelerating lights, the DaVinci teeth-whitening system can leave teeth an average of up to eight shades whiter. During office visits, clients apply the signature whitening solution—an organic plant- and mineral-based gel—to chompers. A specially designed LED laser light is used with the food-grade hydrogen-peroxide gel to lift lingering stains. Once the total transformation is complete, patients may walk away with the graffiti of tobacco, wine, coffee, and age erased from the highway overpasses of their smiles. To continue the process, patients can also take home a personal whitening kit that includes 12 gel applications, custom-fitted trays, and remineralizing and desensitizing gel to care for enamel. DaVinci Teeth Whitening also sells gift certificates.
Ron Haynes and his daughter, Jessie, have built a business from smiling faces. They don't snap yearbook photos or transform dentist gloves into balloon animals. Instead, they helm teeth-whitening shops that brighten smiles in as little as 20 minutes, and since 2005, they have brightened over 50,000 smiles annually across the east coast.
Armed with Beaming White, a state-of-the-art teeth-whitening system that pairs a peroxide-based gel with a UV-free LED light, their team of technicians helps clients brighten their choppers with an applicator pen. Cheek retractors expose the teeth so the gel and light reach every inch of enamel. Once the light unites with the gel, coffee, tea, and grass stains begin to vanish. Teeth continue to lighten after the treatment, achieving a color that's 3-12 shades whiter over the course of 24 hours. With proper care, results can last up to 12 months, or roughly the time it takes to adapt the phonebook into a comedic opera.
A trip to Hot Yoga Spa Nutrition & Wellness Center may not be the equivalent of a Hawaiian vacation, but it's not so far off either. Patrons who close their eyes might imagine themselves in a tropical environment as they sweat their way through hot yoga, hot barre, hot Pilates, Zumba, and other fitness classes held in two heated studios. Or, as they relax in a far-infrared sauna that raises body temperatures to flush out toxins. But the wellness center has more in common with an island retreat than just heat and roaming ukelele players?it aims to be a place where customers can come to totally unwind and refresh both body and mind. To that end, it also welcomes clients to relax at an organic tea and oxygen bar, or head to the attached spa to enjoy a full slate of beauty and wellness services.
The doctors and staff at Lake Ridge Dental Care know that many people harbor anxiety about visiting the dentist. That's why they focus on making each visit as friendly and relaxing as possible, specializing in sedation dentistry. With sedation dentistry, a series of pills taken the night before and the morning of the appointment help guests release their anxieties, unlike thinking about the kind of clown that sits under the bed, waiting, always waiting. Other services include tooth whitening, dental implants, and Invisalign straightening.
