Dr. Dang Ha will do almost anything to get patients the dental care they need, even if it means knocking them out. The Tampa Bay–born Tufts University graduate focuses in sedation dentistry, which removes the hurdle of anxiety from services such as bridge work, implants, and cosmetic procedures. Indeed, Dr. Ha's entire practice is designed to induce a state of calm—from the soothing manner of the staff to the softly lit, buttercup-yellow walls of the office to the gentle whale songs each hygienist has been trained to sing.
Tampa-area native Dr. Dang Ha founded Palm Harbor Sedation and Family Dentistry to serve the community's common dental needs. Regular exams and prophylactic cleanings for kids and adults keep teeth healthy and nip emerging problems in the bud. The office also addresses issues such as chipped enamel, missing teeth, and uvulas that have suddenly gained the ability to sing opera.
The doctors and medical support staff at Adora Body Sculpting Clinic help patients attain their ideal figures with a menu of cosmetic-surgery procedures. The staff boosts confidence levels with fat removal, lifts, and tucks and snubs its smooth nose at Father Time with chemical peels, wrinkle fillers, and laser facials. Bodies feel free to bare all after laser hair removal and tattoo removal.
Located within Wendy Fit Yoga Studio, Florida Med Spa invites clients to enjoy a little R, R, & R (relaxation, refreshment, and rejuvenation). Here, aestheticians offer everything from facials, to body treatments, to waxing. One standout treatment, however, is the signature Florida spa facial.
After an initial consultation and screening for potential complications from severe tooth decay, Dr. Carver Little and Dr. James R. Pitts dress teeth with a specially formulated whitening gel and expose them to a focused beam of light. While under the light, the gel’s hydrogen peroxide breaks down to penetrate enamel and dentin, eradicate colored substances, and bolster dental strength as effectively as toothpaste made from liquefied oranges. Every 15 minutes, technicians wipe dental canvasses clean and lacquer on a fresh coat of solution. Once the four applications are completed, patients can beam a grin up to eight shades more luminous than before. Some teeth-whitenees may experience short-term sensitivity from the procedure, so customers may want to temporarily refrain from eating extremely hot or cold things or biting of the spikes out of railroad tracks.
In one private dental-treatment room, a patient reclines while swaddled in a soft blanket, listening to Sirius XM radio. Next door, in a chamber dedicated to Zoom! whitening, Sony movie glasses transmit moving pictures as dinginess leaches from teeth. According to hygienist Jenn Martin, regular patients like to call Prestige Dentistry "a spa for their teeth," as comfort is paramount in this modern office paneled in golden wood and cream-colored walls. Staying at the forefront of technology with an all-digital office, the dentists peer at biters with interoral cameras and look beneath surfaces with digital x-rays, which, like transcripts of the president's personal phone calls, can be viewed from any computer in the office. An onsite lab and mill enable crowns and any other tooth-replacement options to be forged on the same day as a patient's visit. Prestige Dentistry's staff regularly reaches out to the community with informational events, including visits to schools and adult-care facilities. During the field trips, the professionals explain how good dental care contributes to overall health and better times during no-hands pie-eating contests.
