Armed with University of Minnesota degrees and the ability to spin hay into spools of dental floss, Doctor Ines de Llano attends to oral-health needs with a slew of dental services. With both dentists and oral surgeons on staff, the practice's services range from oral/maxillofacial surgeries to cosmetic treatments such as veneer and crown installation. The staff believes that preventative care is the best defense for maintaining a healthy smile; to further that aim, they supply each patient with individualized care regimens for home.
Drs. Bradley Olson and Sarah Whittaker completely dedicate themselves to getting patients back on their feet. Though they do resort to surgery when necessary, the physicians prefer to utilize a number of noninvasive and minimally invasive procedures to protect visitors' health from toe to ankle. Especially when coupled with athletic activity, the everyday wear and tear that feet and ankles experience can contribute to a number of mobility-limiting conditions. Drs. Olson and Whittaker thoroughly examine each patient's condition before collaboratively designing an appropriate treatment regimen. Custom-designed orthotics help straighten out tilting gaits, MRIs and CT scans can reveal the causes of chronic pains throughout the feet, and cosmetic laser treatments can rid nails of unsightly fungal infections.

Associated Eye Care fields a trio of ophthalmologists who specialize in the all-laser iLASIK system, which utilizes wavefront-guided laser technology to treat nearsightedness, farsightedness, and astigmatism. The vision-correcting procedure begins with a WaveScan eye mapping, which blueprints the cornea’s imperfections and creates a customized 3-D image to guide the surgeon throughout the process. The all-laser IntraLase then creates a precise corneal flap, which reduces the risk of side effects, complications, and mirages of pink elephants. The CustomVue laser reshapes the cornea according to the 3-D eye map to improve vision before the protective flap adheres to the eye naturally. The procedure takes around 10 minutes per eye, and cornea-numbing eye drops are applied to minimize discomfort. Clients usually return to their normal routine within one to three days and typically achieve full vision results within one to four weeks—the same time it takes to find a pair of glasses in a crowd of Coke bottles.
Captained by licensed chiropractor Dr. Larry Estebo, Premier Health Chiropractic's team of spine adjusters has been scrutinizing and soothing pained backs since 1983. After discussing patient health issues and treatment options during a brief consultation, doctors perform a chiropractic examination, testing bodily flexibility, posture, and how quickly knees can answer riddles. If necessary, doctors x-ray patients to more closely inspect them for signs of spinal misalignment or degeneration. Following the initial 20- to 30-minute diagnosis, doctors magically transform their digits into masseuse fingers, digging and rubbing into the deepest, tensest contours of client spines during a 30-minute session that unburdens backs of persistent stress knots and lower-back tattoos.
