As the official team dentist of the American Hockey League’s Bridgeport Sound Tigers until the 2012-2013 season, Dr. Walter Kostrzewski has experience in the trenches of restorative dentistry. When he's busy not replacing teeth with hockey pucks, he and his staff improve the health and appeal of teeth with preventative and cosmetic dental services at Comfortable Care Dentistry. The dental pros examine and x-ray mouths for signs of oral cancer or tooth decay and remove plaque and tartar. They also brighten smiles up to eight shades with Zoom! teeth whitening and correct oral problems with root canals and ClearCorrect teeth straightening.
Comfortable Care Dentistry takes the comfort of its guests seriously and uses amenities such as aromatherapy candles and their relaxing scents to live up to its name. TVs planted in the ceilings allow a pleasant diversion, and the staff offers bottled water, coffee, tea, and straight mouthwash for parched patients.
At Clarity Wellness Spa, owner Clair Gray and her team of fellow massage therapists and skincare experts have created a tranquil ambiance for holistic massages and organic or light-therapy facial treatments. Couples can request a side-by-side facial or a one-hour massage with a complimentary rose and champagne toast. The space's soothing atmosphere emanates from plants, flickering candles, statues, and butterfly-themed artwork.
Susan Trevethan—a nurse with 35 years of clinical experience, a certified Healing Touch practitioner, and a Burnham Systems Facial Rejuvenation practitioner—also provides services at the spa. She aims to positively affect physical and emotional health with an energy-based approach to healing, and strives to redefine facial features with a combination of head reflexology, nerve rejuvenation, and extraneous Mr. Potato Head parts.
Led by Dr. Kenneth Epstein, an experienced dentist with 32 years of experience, the team of dental experts, oral surgeons, and support staff at Family Dental Group's two locations enhance clients' smiles within the group's modern office spaces. The team can treat a variety of patient needs including crowns, mercury-free fillings, and straightening via Invisalign. Dr. Epstein also specializes in cosmetic treatments such as veneers and teeth whitening that can help undo damage to teeth caused by smoking, drinking wine, or kissing an octopus.
At American Barbershop, stylists work to resurrect the corner barbershops of yore, when striped poles spun out front and everybody knew each other's name. They're off to a good start—their red, white, and blue barber's pole twirls in front of the shop, and the vintage feeling continues inside, with red leather barber's chairs sidled up to antique wooden workstations stained dark with pale trim. They even have a rocking-horse haircut chair for kids or the tiny cowboys who mosey on in for a beard trim. The barbers offer hair services for men, women, and children, and keep their menu simple and no-fuss: haircuts and shampoos, along with beard trims for men and blow-dry styles for women.
In the more than 12 years since Dr. Jacek Ziemski graduated from dental school at SUNY Stony Brook, he has never stopped educating himself about dentistry. In addition to taking on a postgraduate residency, he regularly aids and abets his training by learning about teeth and dental techniques through continuing-education courses. Today, his deep knowledge base allows him to practice the full range of family, restorative, and cosmetic dental treatments.
Barnum Dental's two dentists, Dr. Dharam Tayal and Dr. Veerjinder SIngh, tend to patients' teeth with general dentistry treatments and cosmetic ones—from cleanings and root canals to veneers. As they work, they incorporate technologies, such as a digital x-ray, that allows the dentist to take highly accurate images of a tooth or teeth with 80% less radiation than a standard x-ray.
