Kasandra Lambert and Kei Huynh, the husband-and-wife team behind Live Well(ness) LLC, make their living with their hands. They're both trained massage therapists, and chronic pain stands little chance against their various techniques.
Kasandra specializes in deep-tissue and prenatal massage, easing away tension and helping expectant mothers cope with the physical demands of pregnancy. Kei, on the other hand, is a master of the assisted, yoga-like stretches of Thai massage. Though their techniques differ, the couple shares a common goal. "We see a lot of relief around here," says Kasandra. "People ... come in and seem very negative, but leave positive and refreshed."
General dentists, certified lab technicians, and specialists in areas from root canals to orthodontia work together on Columbia Dental’s diverse team. They safeguard smiles with a comprehensive array of services, placing special emphasis on disease prevention with rigorous exams, cleanings, and digital x-rays. However, when disease strikes, the team can treat it in-house, tending to inflamed gums and eliminating chronic pain with root canals. The staff can also straighten crooked smiles with Invisalign treatments, which are more effective than constructing mouth guards from rulers. The office accommodates hectic schedules by staying open seven days a week, with evening appointments available.
Over the past three years, a certified panel of peers has upheld their vote for Dr. Roberta Garceau, awarding her the honor of being a Windsor top dentist. Alongside her coterie of caring dental assistants, Dr. Garceau polishes pearly whites and provides valuable insight into future maintainence practices. During the preliminary exam, prospective pure-mouths can voice concerns about their teeth and gums, thereby solidifying the staff-patient bond. Postconsultation, skilled assistants arm themselves with the Sapphire Plasma Arc Curing Light, a DenMat-designed tool that can shift teeth multiple shades in about an hour's time. And, like most paper-clip-pyramid contests, the entire procedure takes place in office and is completely exempt from the rules of gravity.
An initial 30-minute exam, including x-rays, photos, and impressions of mouth terrain, paves the way for calibrated teeth sheaths designed to slowly shift walnut crackers into perfect alignment. Invisalign straightens crooked chompers with a combination of highly advanced, 3-D computer graphics and the spells of traditional orthodontia. The process eschews braces for clear, removable aligners that are virtually invisible to the unclothed eye. The total cost of an Invisalign treatment varies for each customer (it can run anywhere from $2,000 to $8,000); this Groupon gets you $500 toward that final cost. View some Invisalign FAQs here.
Dr. Mark Hagopian of Somerset Dental Group keeps chatter factories in working order with a comprehensive lineup of preventative, restorative, and cosmetic dental services. The approximately two-hour Zoom or Lumibrite teeth-whitening treatment blanches discolored gum ornaments up to eight shades brighter with a light-activated gel, which erases stains caused by drinking coffee, swigging wine, and devouring pastel fruit portraits. While waiting for their appointments, visitors can unwind in Somerset's modern dental office festooned with decorative plants, framed diplomas, and comfy chairs.
Rosenberg Orthodontics composes cockeyed cuspids into orderly oral arrangements with Invisalign technology. Patients wear a series of transparent aligners that, during a period of 6–15 months, nudge teeth into more comfortable, hygienic, and aesthetically pleasing positions. Skilled toothsmiths administer a preliminary exam, x-rays, and impressions, from which they forge a custom-fitted set of mouth armor. Unlike traditional braces, these molar molders are removable—facilitating easy eating and drinking—and nonmetallic, preventing electromagnet makeout sessions.
