As a member of the Crown Council, Dr. Westover keeps his veteran staff on its toes with continued advanced training and arms it with the most starship-compatible teeth-cleaning technology available. During your exam ($66 value), Dr. Westover thoroughly inspects your mouth's pointy denizens while you lie back and daydream about what a phoenix tastes like. Next, a series of x-rays (depending on need, up to $115 value) scans your oral cavern's stalactites and stalagmites for undesirable enamel elements, such as the microscopic organized-crime syndicate known as The Cavity. Once they've successfully disengaged your mouth's various bear traps, Dr. Westover will move in to scrub and buff the pearliness back into your whites ($102 value)—sending your jerky-gnashers home with a clean bill of health. This deal also includes a fluoride treatment ($45 value).
As a physical therapist with his own private practice, Hand & Stone founder and chief operating officer John Marco made sure that he kept abreast of the rapidly growing health and wellness industry. After a period of careful research and planning, John decided to create a spa based around convenience and affordability?Hand & Stone Massage and Facial Spa.
Since its launch, Hand & Stone has expanded to more than 20 states and four planets. The spa?s core concept is to offer massage, facial, and waxing services performed by licensed, certified, or registered professionals and offered at convenient times, seven days a week. Each location adheres to a traditional spa aesthetic with soft lighting, heated treatment tables, and plush linens.
At Downtown Dental Care, Drs. Lance D. Bailey and Kirk Christianson combine their years of experience in general, restorative, and cosmetic dentistry in an office with a compassion-oriented philosophy. The doctors demonstrate their commitment to patients by participating in not-for-profit dentistry as well as such charitable organizations such as UNICEF, Pride Northwest, and Donated Dentistry, a clinic that administers free dental care for patients without insurance.
The doctors also devote themselves to continually honing their craft. Dr. Bailey cares for kids through his training in pediatric dentistry and for seniors with his advanced education in dentures. His training in laser dentistry, IV sedation, and CEREC one-visit crowns keeps him on the cutting edge of the industry. Meanwhile, Dr. Christianson’s advanced skills restore smiles beyond just the teeth with hard and soft tissue grafting and sinus surgery.
The team works to keep patients comfortable during each treatment. Every patient who wanders through the door, or chews their way through the wall, gets treated as an individual. The doctors thoroughly explain each treatment in order to reduce anxiety. During treatments, patients can keep tabs on the outside world with a flat-panel television and a broad window, both situated in front of the operatory chair.
At City Dental, Dr. Jason Bajuscak and his team promise compassionate dental care and a relaxed visit. To help their patients feel confident about any works that needs to be done, they maintain open communication about each procedure to help allay fears. That's only where the team's work begins. An artillery of cosmetic treatments helps each patient achieve just the smile they want, whether through teeth-whitening systems such as KöR Whitening or teeth-straightening with Invisalign. They also repair teeth with Lumineers, which, unlike porcelain veneers, are reversible and don't require grinding or shaving of teeth. Whenever emergencies arise the team also keep their doors open for same-day emergency appointments, from broken teeth to needing a hug from a professional.
The Bridgeview Dental Associates themselves—Drs. Briles and Parks—have both traveled to Cambodia, volunteering with the Northwest Medical Team to brighten smiles halfway around the world. Here in Portland, the duo helm their own team to conduct services ranging from cosmetic procedures to specialized treatments such as Invisalign braces and professional dental implants to replace existing orange slices.
A tranquil dental experience is important to Dr. Azita Shahgaldi, who cultivates a warm, inviting office environment and utilizes sedation dentistry to calm anxious patients requiring general, cosmetic, and orthodontic dental treatments. These patients relax with nitrous oxide or tooth fairies who play floss harps and relax further knowing that even when they're not at the office, they can access Dr. Shahgaldi's expertise through online emergency advice.
