Dr. Elliot Sabbagh, DDS, wanted to be a dentist as soon as he graduated from high school, so he took the fastest route to get there: New York University’s accelerated dental program. He has put that extensive training to good use for the past 18 years at iSmile Dental Centers, a group practice he started and has expanded to include eight practices across New York City’s five boroughs. He and his fellow dentists provide a comprehensive slate of dental services—exams, crowns, fillings, digital x-rays, wisdom-tooth extraction, veneers, and power whitening—that cover patients’ preventive, surgical, and cosmetic needs.

Chris C. Chen decided to make a change. After 19 successful years in the corporate world, he walked away from it all to follow his dream—helping heal people as a New York State–licensed acupuncturist. Now, as the practitioner at Bronx Acupuncture, he combines his acupuncture expertise with 32 years of martial arts training, which allows him to read and balance each of his clients' energies more accurately—his clients have even dubbed him "the painless one" because of his gentle approach. His individually tailored treatments are designed to prevent ailments by maintaining the patient's health from every angle, including physically, emotionally, and spiritually. In addition to acupuncture sessions and consultations, Chris also performs facial-rejuvenation acupuncture, which acts as a surgery-free facelift to help the skin look younger, firmer, and healthier.
