The aestheticians and massage therapists at Perfect Getaway Day Spa pamper clients with a lavish spread of manicures and pedicures, custom-tailored facials, and a dozen different massage styles. Swedish and deep-tissue treatments root out aches with gentle, flowing kneads or targeted pressure, and reflexology massage relieves tension throughout the body by manipulating pressure points in the hands and feet. Soothing soaks and massages soften hands and feet during signature mani-pedis, and facials refresh complexions with personalized blends of products designed for any skin type, whether dry, oily, or locked in an iron mask. The spa's party packages can also transform birthday or bachelorette gatherings into full-on makeovers with combinations of massages, facials, and mani-pedis.
University of Minnesota graduate Dr. Jay B. West, his son Dr. Grayson T. West, family man Dr. Peter J. Stanton, and crown guru Dr. Joseph M.

Treatment areas, designed with comfort in mind, pamper patients with individual music headsets, neck pillows, and toasty blankets, and waiting guests keep busy in the well-appointed reception area with current periodicals and cable TV.
At Sandpiper Dental, friendly isn’t just a vague way to describe the staff. Drs. Thomas W. Waite and David J. Trebisovsky, both University of Minnesota alums with more than 25 years of experience each, and their staff show patients how much they care by greeting everyone by their first name as they walk through the door. They also handwrite friendly notes to check in with patients after they’ve undergone a root canal or complicated surgery to extract stubborn popcorn kernels. They even have been known to send out hand-crafted birthday cards and flowers on special occasions, and they keep their office equipped with a children’s play area to make the space welcoming to whole family.
Long before she received her cosmetic physician certification, Dr. Leslie Smith's medical and surgical career began at the State University of Michigan, where years of study led to the completion of her surgical training and the acquisition of a comprehensive knowledge of school fight songs. Dr. Smith then volunteered for military service, specializing in burn and tissue injuries as an Army officer at the Brooke Army Medical Center in San Antonio. Dr. Smith's research in burns, trauma, and soft tissue has garnered the attention of members of the national and international community, such as the American College of Osteopathic Surgeons and the Royal College of Surgeons in London. All this education and experience has led Sapphire Advanced Aesthetics to receive the SUN Current Readers' Choice Award for Best Laser Hair Removal in 2014.

Dr. Collin Hatcher has led the staff of Cedar Cliff Dental Center in tending smiles since he founded the practice in 1985. He enthusiastically embraces new dental technologies such as laser dentistry and Invisalign, which gets teeth to straighten up their act with clear aligners rather than threats of military school. He and his team cover the spectrum of dental services from general cleanings and checkups to teeth whitening. They also practice holistic dentistry, which focuses on the mouth's connection to the rest of the body, preserving natural teeth, and educating patients about alternatives to traditional dental procedures.
The experienced tooth technicians at Kinney and Musser brighten smiles with modern technology and a philosophy of preventative maintenance over corrective procedures. The visit begins with a comprehensive dental examination, during which the dentist will spelunk into face caverns in search of tooth decay, signs of oral cancer, and Lego buildup. Afterwards, a skilled technician snaps four bitewing x-rays and a panoramic x-ray to reveal the goings-on between tooth and gum, as well as exposing any otherwise invisible tooth decay. A hygienist then bathes mouth bones in a whirlpool of floss and foam, sloughing off plaque jackets and removing tartar tiaras.
