Striving for patient comfort and entertainment, the crew outfits each treatment room with flat-screen TVs and WiFi access. The office's welcoming reception area invites clients to relax in plush armchairs arranged around the stone counter. A cozy fireplace warms hands in cold weather and eagerly consumes candy bars before they have the chance to induce cavities.

Brightway Smile swiftly exorcises stains from oral porcelains with a whitening process that employs dental-grade hydrogen-peroxide gel or carbamide-peroxide gel for sensitive incisors. Patrons brush and rinse mouth stones before donning dark sunglasses and relaxing in chairs to meditate with iPod tunes or internal recitations of Vogue while teeth brighten. The treatment foregoes trays, allowing patients to uniformly coat their own chompers with a powerful solution that fizzes into enamel and whitewashes stains. Staffers zap gel-shrouded smiles with a cool blue LED light that automatically powers down after 20 minutes. A second treatment immediately follows the first to further brighten and extend the lifespan of clients' smiles for roughly a year or until their next tie-dye milkshake. Brightway Smile also supplies take-home kits and touch-up pens to keep bicuspids camera-ready in the comfort of their abodes.
When you picture the judges of an international beauty pageant, you likely think of media moguls, celebrities, star athletes, or former beauty queens. The idea of a cosmetic dentist would never cross your mind, and yet that is exactly what international beauty-pageant judge Dr. Aalam Samsavar is.
As the official cosmetic dentist of the Mrs. Washington pageant, a member of numerous accreditation societies, and the head of International Institute of Cosmetic Dentistry, Dr. Samsavar is well equipped to judge a beautiful smile. He also wants to help everyone have one, which is why he pairs complimentary smile consultations with cosmetic and concept dental services and improves grins with veneers, Invisalign, and Smilercise—a series of exercises he invented that tones face and jaw muscles without requiring tongues to lift barbells. At his dental spa, guests can even feel like pampered beauty queens as they sip on herbal tea, recline in massage chairs, watch movies, and wear a crown. Dr. Samsavar ensures that each patient is well taken care of with these amenities and a policy of admitting only one patient to his office at a time.
