After amassing degrees from UCLA Dental School and practicing dentistry for more than 20 years, Valerie Barba, DDS, realized her dream of opening her own practice, which she built on the foundation of expert preventive care and smile-brightening cosmetic treatments. Dr. Barba juggles her roles as wife of 21 years, mother to four children, and avid marathon runner with her full-time dental commitments while still finding time to visit local schools to educate children about taking care of their teeth. The good doctor protects precious chompers with emergency procedures, exams, and checkups, and enhances a smile's sparkle with Zoom! whitening treatments and a well-practiced technique in applying porcelain veneers. Her treatments unfold in a pristine spa-like studio where warm light bathes hardwood floors, sun filters through the windows onto cozy leather treatment chairs, and tiny terrycloth robes enshroud each tooth.

These things come from nature: olive oil, seaweed, and St. John's Wort. The savvy aestheticians of Body Beautiful Day Spa take these ingredients and perform soothing, natural facials that eliminate the use of harsh chemicals that can irritate the skin. Once outer beauty is achieved, clients can saunter over to a massage bed, where a versatile therapist inspires calm or relieves aches stemming from whiplash, sciatica, carpal tunnel syndrome, TMJ, or thumb wars. The specialists round out their spa menu with body wraps, mani-pedis, and waxing.
