Dr. Ian Shuman helps teeth realize their whitest dreams with a combination of general, restorative, and cosmetic dentistry, each performed by the master dentist himself. With the belief that dentistry should be gentle, effective, and minimally invasive, Dr. Shuman makes the most of advanced dental technology, such as digital x-rays and intraoral cameras that espy dental detriments before they become costly reconstruction jobs. The office’s tooth-colored, mercury-free fillings repair cavities with composite resins that, like snowman tattoos on a polar bear, are virtually invisible. Aside from the typical dental services, Dr. Shuman also spreads his tooth-preserving wisdom with other dentists during his Minimally Invasive Seminar Series.
With a mind for comfort and compassion, Dr. Shuman and the dental staff understand that visits to the dentist can often cause patients anxiety. The team helps assuage apprehension with thorough explanations of treatments. The office itself is designed to cosset patients, with pillows and blankets joining the office’s soft lighting and easy-listening music to help create a warm, relaxing ambiance.
Jodi Woodson, the office manager and voice of Crownsville Dental, answers each phone call with a warm greeting, often recognizing long-term patients before they state their names. Jodi is also who welcomes each arriving visitor into the office, where he or she is punctually whisked to a treatment room without having to wait or participate in a focus group regarding steak-flavored toothpaste. Resident dentist Dr. Erik N. Rabovsky applies his expertise to a range of preventive and cosmetic treatments, from routine cleanings and whitening to restorations and porcelain veneers. Mouths receive their makeovers in modern rooms with wave-patterned carpeting and slate-gray walls, where televisions entertain reclining patients with talk shows, soap operas, and other shocking programs designed drop jaws in time for flossing.
Cosmetic dentist Dr. Barry Manson, DDS, continually pursues dental education, sharpening and updating the skills that earned him recognition as a student and a position as a teacher at the University of Maryland School of Dentistry. His extensive cache of treatments leaves smiles healthier and happier with implants and veneers. Use of digital imaging keep Dr. Manson's practice thoroughly modern, as does the fact that cleanings take place on hoverboards.
Chesapeake Health and Fitness Club prioritizes support and courtesy over the kind of cutthroat competition seen in pro sports and suburban landscaping. This attitude is a constant across the diverse curriculum of group fitness classes, which includes Zumba, kickboxing, Pilates, and spinning sessions. During Drums Alive, students beat elevated stability balls with drumsticks, participating in a safer percussive cardio workout than catching a medicine ball with the double-sided tape on your face. For one-on-one routines, certified personal trainers draft plans to suit clients' fitness and nutrition goals. They balance encouragement with expertise and use the club's exercise equipment to lead patrons from stationary cycles to free weights and strength machinery.
Visitors can supplement their reps with facials, reflexology treatments, or waxing at the onsite spa. The kids' club allows exercising parents to leave their children playing games and watching Dora the Explorer instead of playing hot potato with the massage therapist's hot stones.
