Apart from making our lives more efficient and ensuring that we can more easily answer nuanced questions about Golden Girls plotlines, technology can make us feel comfortable. At DMG Dental Design, Dr. David Myaskovsky grasps this modern concept and constantly seeks out innovative tools that expedite his procedures and set his clients at ease. In addition to low-radiation, digital x-ray systems, he outfits his treatment rooms with ultrasonic cleaning technology and laser cavity finders, which can more accurately detect decay before it causes extensive damage. The office also stocks the means for cosmetic treatments, from porcelain veneers to Zoom! teeth whitening.
Yet apart from technology, old-fashioned friendliness and a few amenities still help. At DMG Dental Design, a visual playground of glass sculptures entices the eye, with sconce lighting that resembles blue sea urchins stuck to the wall and an open treatment area divided by rectangles of opaque orange and green. Visitors can also augment their appointment by watching television, listening to music, or practicing their proficiency at speaking only in vowels.
The team of spa and medical professionals at Aura Laser Skin Care dispenses FDA-approved treatments whenever possible. When fine-tuning the appearance of men and women through laser hair removal, SmartLipo, laser skin resurfacing, or chemical peels, only treatments given the official thumbs-up are used on clients. For newer procedures, the staff relies on advanced systems to soften skin, slim shapes, or eradicate troublesome moons orbiting newly glowing complexions.
The team at Progressive Dental Group regularly trains on the industry's latest technological developments to make their services as effective and pleasant as possible. Seattle-area natives and University of Washington School of Dentistry alums Drs. John Skibiel, Ranjiv Hayre, and Adam Berry call upon more than 35 years of combined experience as they provide cosmetic and family dental services, including single-visit CEREC crowns, dental implants, porcelain veneers, and teeth whitening. Dr. Berry was named a top area dentist by Seattle Met magazine in 2011.
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.
At Equine Life Solutions, the knowledgeable, centaurian instructors focus their teaching efforts on more than simply learning to command a horse. During their customized lessons and camp sessions, they instill in their students the importance of safety, as well as building trust and emotional connections with their steeds to overcome riding anxieties and enjoy their rides more fully. Trail riding basics and horse care techniques are practiced alongside the setting and building of riders’ expectations of themselves and the horses to foster positive relationships with the kind, gentle creatures. Instructors also teach young riders a number of additional skills during standard and knight-themed camps, including leadership skills, how to conquer stable chores, and even swordsmanship.
