Successful restaurateur Supenn Harrison made her first foray into the restaurant business more than 30 years ago, when she bought a burger joint in the Twin Cities. For Supenn, slinging patties wasn't enough to satisfy her love of the culinary arts; the Thailand native and former teacher quickly traded deep fryers for woks and opened her first Thai restaurant.
She eventually launched the first Sawatdee in 1983 in an abandoned warehouse, transforming the unlikely setting into something you might see in the heart of Bangkok, with gold-leaf ceilings and traditional artwork. Now, Supenn owns seven Sawatdee restaurants throughout Minnesota and has expanded the menu to include sushi dishes. Besides sharing her culinary skills through hands-on cooking classes, Supenn has disseminated her authentic Thai fare by catering birthday celebrations, family reunions, and the Rolling Stones' anti-retirement party.

Lots of people never want to leave college, but few actually get the chance to stay. Dr. Steven B. Means counts himself among these lucky few; after graduating from the University of Minnesota School of Dentistry in 1977, he moved in to an office located right on campus. Though he’s now an expert in cosmetic and restorative dentistry, Dr. Means has taken advantage of his collegiate surroundings to continually educate himself in those fields. He has joined forces with Dr. Sherif Said, who is an alumnus of Ain Shams University's School of Dentistry in Cairo, a member of the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry, and has practiced dentistry for over eight years.
Whether they're filling cavities with tooth-colored composites, installing dental implants, or performing a routine cleaning, the two doctors keep their patients informed and encourages them to ask questions.

Their expertise also extends to treating gum disease and customizing mouth guards for people who unconsciously chew on their arms while asleep.

Whether they’re plugging teeth with Cerec ceramic fillings or outfitting mouths with implants, the dentists explain each procedure in detail.
