Invisalign straightens crooked chompers through a combination of highly advanced, 3-D computer graphics and the spells of good old-fashioned orthodontia. Eleven different practices feature orthodontists specially trained and certified in the Invisalign process, which eschews cumbersome braces for clear, removable aligners that are virtually invisible to the unclothed eye. An initial exam, including x-rays, photos, and impressions of your mouth terrain, will pave the way for a flurry of calibrated teeth sheaths that are designed to slowly shift your walnut crackers into perfect alignment. The total cost of an Invisalign treatment varies with each customer (it can run anywhere from $2,000 to $8,000); this Groupon gets you $1,000 to put toward that final cost.
When Dr. Molldrem?or Dr. Kevin, as he's known to his younger patients?became a dentist, he wanted his office to provide the quality of dental care and comfort he'd want for his own family. So, in addition to offering a wide variety of dental services employing the latest dental techniques, he has outfitted Molldrem Family Dentistry with a number of kid-friendly amenities, such as scented laughing gas and Nintendo DS gamestations. But he and his fellow dentist, Dr. Fam, haven't forgotten about their adult patients. The team offers a full range of preventative and cosmetic dental procedures, including Zoom teeth whitening and replacing drab molars with colorful gumdrops.
Someone snuggled in the dentist chair with a blanket is not an unusual sight at Twin Cities Modern Dentistry, where patient comfort comes first. Dr. Mike Hendrickson and Dr. Lisa Edstrom use technology from CEREC and DIAGNOdent, among others, to provide an array of services such as digital bite-wing x-rays, deep cleanings, same-day crowns, and root canals.
Twin Cities native Dr. Wallace Lunden continued his dental education after graduating as a DDS from the University of Minnesota, and he actively participates in dental organizations like the Academy for the Study of Dental Occlusion, the American Dental Society, and the Minnesota Dental Society. He tends to teeth with a full range of general and cosmetic dentistry services. In addition to preventing cavities with cleanings, the doctor specializes in keeping evidence of dental work a secret. He spruces up smiles with porcelain veneers, fits teeth with natural-looking ceramic crowns, and replaces conspicuous metal amalgam with tooth-colored composite material. He also applies Invisalign and ClearCorrect braces that stay out of sight like teenagers at family functions as they guide teeth toward healthier positions. Dr. Lunden runs a family practice, and he loves kids; he himself has four children, four grandchildren, and a wife who teaches kindergarten.
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.
Tucked inside Vizi Spa & Salon is a cozy room where Freddie spends his days. The massage therapist unties knotted muscles and alleviates new and chronic aches during sessions that last anywhere from 60 minutes to an indulgent 90 minutes. Freddie uses Swedish, deep-tissue, and sports techniques to traverse torsos with both gentle kneading and focused pressure that realigns the deeper layers of connective tissue. Alternatively, couples or a client and their favorite teddy bear can recline on tables for a relaxing couples massage.
