Even before taking their place on the massage table or in a heated pedicure chair, customers who walk into Elite Salon & Day Spa have a sense of the luxurious relaxation they can expect. They're greeted with complimentary beverages before being ushered into softly lit private rooms where candles flicker, and stress is submerged under a wash of relaxing music. Among other services, aestheticians improve skin with facials that use Rep?chage products, a seaweed-based line manufactured in the United States. For those who need a getaway from family responsibilities or a stressful job turning the sun on and off every day, spa packages sequester guests in serenity for three to seven hours.

Dentist Patti Webb, an erstwhile chemistry teacher and plant pathologist, found the independent science of dentistry compelling enough to switch careers and return to school. She began tending to teeth at Gentle Dental Care just after graduating, and soon took over the practice. Now, 20 years later, she is still at the helm, alongside two of her sons, Dr. Austin Webb and Dr. Jordan Webb.
The trio of mouth maestros assesses overall oral health, fills in cavities, and fits crowns. In addition to general dentistry, the team delves into cosmetic dentistry with implants, Invisalign teeth-straightening, and teeth-whitening treatments that employ custom trays and gel to brighten smiles until their owners can grin their way through dark corridors.
With more than 29 years of combined experience, Drs. John M. Borchers and Michael T. Mckee care for teeth the way a kindergarten teacher cares for her class. Though they won’t teach incisors how to add or properly enunciate the pledge of allegiance, the doctors do ensure that each member of the group lives in harmony with its neighbor, maintains straight posture, and remains present and accounted for at all times. To accomplish this, Drs. Borchers and Mckee administer meticulous examinations that inspect each tooth for signs of decay and crookedness. And when teeth have gone missing altogether, dental implants can serve as permanent seat fillers, dutifully chewing on any urgently overdue homework.

Dr. Reagin and Dr. Turner both make an effort to attend lectures, meetings, and conventions to remain at the forefront of their industry. Dr. Reagin specializes in the placement and restoration of implants and the administration of IV sedation, and she is a member of the International Congress of Oral Implantologists.
As part of their commitment to state-of-the-art services, the duo employs technology such as digital x-rays and other diagnostic tools. They check for lurking decay, for example, with a small sterilized intraoral camera. A monitor can then display information from the pen-sized video camera that is 10–40 times its true size.

At his practice, My Daytona Dental, he performs a full slate of dental services that he honed while working on the Upper West Side. His specialties range from preventive exams and teeth whitening to veneers, implants and cavity fillings.
