With an advanced degree in orthodontics and TMJ treatment in dentistry from the University of Minnesota School of Dentistry under her belt, Dr. Delia Dall' Arancio and Dr. Regina Blevins adjust smiles until they project even more smile. The initial exam, including x-rays, photos, and strategizing about a dental regimen, will set the course for teeth calibrators designed to slowly shift walnut crackers into alignment. Patients are encouraged to ask questions about their particular treatment, including how much peanut butter will be involved. For the toothy task of fang modification, you get $1,000 toward any traditional full set of braces priced at $5,700 or more or $1,000 toward any individualized Invisalign treatment priced at $6,500 or more.
Although dental visits generally aren't a popular way to spend an afternoon, Dr. Nazir wants to make them as pleasant as possible. He caters to anxious individuals during restorative and general dentistry with oral conscious and IV sedation, which relaxes patients while leaving them cognizant and communicative. Trained in advanced dental techniques with more than 18 years of experience under his electric handpieces, Dr. Nazir performs a broad range of dental services, from fabricating crowns to brightening smiles with take-home whitening kits.
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.
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.
