No matter where they are in the country, clients of Dental Professionals of Virginia and Maryland and Neibauer Dental Care are bound to find a dentist just as skilled as the one at home. That’s because more than 400 offices in 19 states are affiliated with the dental network, whose administrative support, guiding principles, and focus on continuing education ensure that their dentists will be talented wherever they work. The company also strives for community improvement—they’ve contributed more than $250,000 to such charities as the American Red Cross, The Oral Cancer Foundation, and the Smiles for Life campaign.
• For $69, you get a teeth cleaning, examination with x-rays, and smile consultation (a $320 value). • For $179, you get an in-office Zoom! teeth whitening (a $500 value). The on-site orthodontic specialists and other dental dynamos at Sasan Ahmadiyar, DDS & Associates champion sparkling teeth with advanced preventative and cosmetic oral care. During the examination, a technician appraises mouth stones by highlighting cavities and other fixable flaws, using x-rays to reveal concealed damage. Then, a thorough cleaning decimates plaque and clingy spinach, untarnishing grills for a smile brighter than a light bulb solving a Rubik's cube in 12 seconds. As they admire their work, dental professions will also provide customers with a smile consultation to discuss cosmetic options for improving grins and increasing the chances of being stunt doubles during action-packed toothbrush commercials.
Softouch Permanent Makeup's steady-handed professionals subtly and safely enhance clients' natural features using the SofTap Hand Method. Unlike permanent makeup applied with a tattoo gun or water pistol loaded with borscht, the SofTap Hand Method applies pigment using small needles to gently tap color under the skin's surface, usually over the course of two visits to reduce healing time. Improve top lash batting averages with a slight dot of color between every lash ($250), or add permanent top or bottom eyeliner ($250). Fully shade a pout ($550) or fill out sparse or bare brows ($400) with natural-looking strokes that mimic the look of brow hair. Though the procedure may cause some pain, prettifying pros apply a numbing agent before application to reduce discomfort. Results can last from five to ten years, and require minimal touchups or makeout sessions with rainbows to maintain.
Ron Haynes and his daughter, Jessie, have built a business from smiling faces. They don't snap yearbook photos or transform dentist gloves into balloon animals. Instead, they helm teeth-whitening shops that brighten smiles in as little as 20 minutes, and since 2005, they have brightened over 50,000 smiles annually across the east coast.
Armed with Beaming White, a state-of-the-art teeth-whitening system that pairs a peroxide-based gel with a UV-free LED light, their team of technicians helps clients brighten their choppers with an applicator pen. Cheek retractors expose the teeth so the gel and light reach every inch of enamel. Once the light unites with the gel, coffee, tea, and grass stains begin to vanish. Teeth continue to lighten after the treatment, achieving a color that's 3-12 shades whiter over the course of 24 hours. With proper care, results can last up to 12 months, or roughly the time it takes to adapt the phonebook into a comedic opera.
The doctors and staff at Lake Ridge Dental Care know that many people harbor anxiety about visiting the dentist. That's why they focus on making each visit as friendly and relaxing as possible, specializing in sedation dentistry. With sedation dentistry, a series of pills taken the night before and the morning of the appointment help guests release their anxieties, unlike thinking about the kind of clown that sits under the bed, waiting, always waiting. Other services include tooth whitening, dental implants, and Invisalign straightening.
Rejuvalase MedSpa, as its name suggests, is dedicated to the noninvasive advantages that lasers can provide—in fact, the med spa is so committed to the technology that it offers its own in-house laser-aesthetics training program. But despite Rejuvalase's love of the laser's touchless efficiency, it also proves its allegiance to luxury with an entire department devoted to head-to-toe day-spa treatments and salon services. As one side of the spa bustles with technicians administering laser hair removal and cellulite-reduction treatments, the other side exudes tranquility as clients slip on robes and slippers to receive facials and massages. A relaxation area—dubbed the Peacock Room for its avian-inspired decor and inability to outrun a tiger—allows clients a space to retreat in comfy recliners with a magazine and complimentary beverage in hand.
