Quality chiropractic care in a comfortable and friendly environment was the goal of Dr. Joel Taatjes when he opened Redwood Chiropractic back in 1989, and it remains his mission today.
Redwood Chiropractic combines the unique talents of chiropractic doctors with a highly trained clinical staff to reach maximum benefit.
After a day of antique shopping in historic downtown Petaluma, you find yourself in a tranquil space where scented candles and the sound of a trickling water fountain lull the senses. "Is this a spa?" you ask yourself. "Am I here for a massage?" As dentist Jurina Smida greets you, you realize you've arrived at Dental Care of Petaluma, maybe for a high-tech procedure such as laser gum therapy or a smile-straightening Invisalign treatment. You can't remember—and, quite frankly, you don't care—as you help yourself to a steaming cup from the exotic-tea center, don a pair of DVD-playing glasses, and position a therapeutic pillow beneath your neck. "That was an excellent facial," you think as a staff member hands you a lavender-scented hot towel after your treatment. "Or was that a root canal?"
Jurina Smida has both a DMD degree from the Komesky School of Dentistry and a DDS degree from the University of the Pacific Arthur A. Dugoni School of Dentistry, where her son, Dr. Branko Smida, also earned his dental degree. The duo focuses not only on patient comfort but also on seeking out the latest dental technology. They employ an advanced KaVo system to track down cavities and use Cerec software to design and fabricate ceramic crowns or tiny Statues of Liberty in only one visit.
Dr. Firas Husein fixes crooked, decayed, and chipped teeth with surgical and cosmetic services. He replaces missing chompers with dental implants and extracts useless teeth using the old string-and-a-doorknob scenario. He also offers Invisalign removable retainers to straighten teeth and Zoom teeth whitening to brighten smiles.
Sonoma Smile's at-home kit utilizes advanced whitening technology to gently coax masticators to the next level of eye-blinding brightness. Unlike their weak, ill-fitting drugstore counterparts, these whitening trays surround each tooth like a snake squeezes a stress ball. Dr. Wayne Sutton's office takes custom molds for each patient, ensuring the trays conform to each individual tooth, molar, and fang. After the quick fitting, patients receive trays in about a week, along with a supply of professional-grade whitening gel that restores teeth to porcelain radiance within 14 days by repelling the espresso-loving gum gremlins that cause tooth discoloration.
With hundreds of locations across the country, Right Dental Group represents a collection of oral-health-care professionals who deliver a variety of quality dental services. The collective places an emphasis on relationship building—meaning patients can confess their most egregious toffee-apple trespasses while receiving a teeth scrubbing delivered with precision and understanding. Each of the dentists is prescreened for a consistent record of excellence and the ability to efficiently locate a cavity in a toothstack.
The micropigmentation artists at Eyebrow Genie transform facial symmetries with a delicate technology—similar to tattooing—that creates fine lines to accentuate natural looks. After determining the most flattering brow shape for each client, they tweak eyebrow dimensions to make long faces appear shorter, round faces appear longer, or clock faces look like Audrey Hepburn. Although brows are the salon's specialty, the artists also share their skills with permanent eyeliner and lip-liner applications. They also work with breast-cancer victims free of charge to help camouflage scarring.
