Dr. Mike Kesner has always had a knack for working with his hands. As a boy, he constantly built model vehicles. In college, his plans to become a medical doctor shifted to dentistry because it held more opportunity for the hands-on manipulation of small instruments and precision parts. In 1984, he established Made Ya Smile Dental, a place where he carefully extracts wisdom teeth, fills in spaces between teeth, and installs implants into the jawbone to replace a missing tooth. He also specializes in Lumineers, and his practice’s five locations together make up one of biggest Lumineers providers in the country.
Although he and his team of dentists work in separate locations, each of their offices share a similar design and set of amenities. Visitors at any of the five locations marvel at the reception areas’ coffeehouse ambiance as they sit at a café table, sip coffee, and work on the movie script for Vampires vs. Martians: The Reddest Dawn. In the treatment rooms, patients drift off while listening to music on the provided headphones. Anxious patients relax with nitrous oxide or the sounds of the rainforest simulated by the staff.
At Preferred Dental Spa, tooth whisperers apply a specialty Zoom! gel onto chompers, which then bathe in focused, intense light in three 15-minute cycles. The 45-minute service causes minimal discomfort, if any, and brightens teeth up to eight shades more efficiently than holding a flashlight between teeth. Zoom! reports that with careful upkeep, results can last for years.
Over the last 10 years, Skin Essentials Med Spa & Hair Salon owner Kelly Davis has prettified more than 2,000 faces with the SofTap permanent-makeup technique. She sidesteps the racket and pain of traditional tattoo-machine methods to gently apply the pigment with a hand tool, giving her absolute control to craft a subtle lip shape or a seductively arched brow. Guests can find similar attention to detail in the spa's repertoire of other beautifying services, from simple mani-pedis to advanced exfoliation peels that obscure signs of aging. Those looking to amp up their aesthetic moxie can enlist in a variety of services such as weight loss treatments, spray tanning, chiropractic care, and Lipo Plex. Injections of Botox or Restylane keep skin surfaces as smooth as a pancake, and full-body scrubs and masks treat the whole physique to ensure that even your Achilles' heel embodies a beauty that belies its vulnerability.
Oral surgeon J. Enrique Tabarani helms Shadow Creek Oral & Facial Surgery, where he treats ailments from missing teeth to cleft palates and specializes in dental implants. Dental implants start with a titanium post implanted in the jawbone; this sturdy foundation functions as a root for false teeth, enhancing the stability of crowns and bridges. Dr. Tabarani's treatments extend beyond that, too, encompassing wisdom teeth removal and jaw surgery, which help correct severe overbites or underbites. The doctor also donates his expertise to Latin American children, in collaboration with a variety of nonprofits.
The office is located within Shadow Creek, which provides services such as botox, juvederm, chemical peel, skin-tightening, and photofacials.
Dr. Afroz Burges enjoys treating patients with gentle, compassionate care. She takes pride in her ability to listen to their questions and concerns, thoroughly explain all treatments, and restore or improve their health. Whether they require general, preventive, or cosmetic services, visitors’ comfort is further ensured by the use of advanced technology, including powerful teeth-whitening treatments and CEREC equipment that can allow for a tooth restoration in a single visit. Dr. Burges also straightens smiles with orthodontics and offers Invisalign as an alternative to metal braces or smiling in front of a jet turbine to shift teeth into place.
