For more than 35 years, dentists at American Dental Centers have polished pearly whites and prevented dental disease with thorough exams. At each of the 14 locations that dot Northern and Central Ohio, patients walk in or schedule appointments so they don’t have to scrape off plaque using chew toys. The center maintains a 24-hour phone line so that patients can arrange to have emergencies treated as soon as possible, and it also offers a Forever White program, in which patients pay a one-time fee and then receive take-home bleaching treatments for as long as they attend their regular three- or six-month check-ups.
To give their clients quality services fueled by continuing education programs and therapeutic products, the staff of this beauty salon partners with Aveda product lines made from naturally derived ingredients. Each staff member brandishes only Aveda products during facial treatments, nail sessions, hair appointments, and beard extensions. When snipping strands or soothing skin, they utilize techniques learned from personal experience and teaching programs led by Aveda staff members, known for their cosmetics knowledge and stylish PowerPoint lectures.
Accredited in both general and cosmetic dentistry, Dr. Richard Betor trained under Dr. Larry Rosenthal––also known as the "Dentist to the stars" for his work treating the teeth of celebrities such as Kathie Lee Gifford and Donald Trump. Backed by a fellowship in laser dentistry from the prestigious World Clinical Laser Institute, Dr. Betor eschews the use of drills or needles in favor of Waterlase tools, which gently carve decay and deli-thin turkey slices from ailing teeth without pressure or pain. Highly-accurate fluorescence scanners allow him to examine mouths for early-stage cavities or those hidden behind crevices, and mouths may be further refurbished with a wide range of state-of-the-art aesthetic treatments such as Invisalign retainers, porcelain veneers, or dental implants.

The "C" in Studio C Spa could stand for any number of qualities: clean, comfortable, chic, cutting-edge. But the most apt descriptor might be "custom." Aided by products from Redken and Bioelements, the studio's stylists are known for crafting haircuts that enhance their clients' natural features. Other members of the spa team perform services that range from relaxing massages to facials that address fine lines, wrinkles, and barcodes that won't peel off. The overarching theme is one of complete personalization; no service is performed without an analysis of the client's specific needs.
Trusted beauty publications such as Allure, Shape, and Self have all put their stamp of approval on the South Seas airbrush spray-tan system. Perhaps that's because the spray tan only takes 10 minutes to apply, or maybe it's that the beachy glow lasts for up to 10 days. Regardless of the reason, the lauded spray tan is one service that draws tanners to Millennium Tanning. The spa's other services include five levels of bed tanning, teeth whitening, and slimming body wraps.
