Twin Cities native Dr. Wallace Lunden continued his dental education after graduating as a DDS from the University of Minnesota, and he actively participates in dental organizations like the Academy for the Study of Dental Occlusion, the American Dental Society, and the Minnesota Dental Society. He tends to teeth with a full range of general and cosmetic dentistry services. In addition to preventing cavities with cleanings, the doctor specializes in keeping evidence of dental work a secret. He spruces up smiles with porcelain veneers, fits teeth with natural-looking ceramic crowns, and replaces conspicuous metal amalgam with tooth-colored composite material. He also applies Invisalign and ClearCorrect braces that stay out of sight like teenagers at family functions as they guide teeth toward healthier positions. Dr. Lunden runs a family practice, and he loves kids; he himself has four children, four grandchildren, and a wife who teaches kindergarten.
The aestheticians and massage therapists at Perfect Getaway Day Spa pamper clients with a lavish spread of manicures and pedicures, custom-tailored facials, and a dozen different massage styles. Swedish and deep-tissue treatments root out aches with gentle, flowing kneads or targeted pressure, and reflexology massage relieves tension throughout the body by manipulating pressure points in the hands and feet. Soothing soaks and massages soften hands and feet during signature mani-pedis, and facials refresh complexions with personalized blends of products designed for any skin type, whether dry, oily, or locked in an iron mask. The spa's party packages can also transform birthday or bachelorette gatherings into full-on makeovers with combinations of massages, facials, and mani-pedis.
Tucked inside Vizi Spa & Salon is a cozy room where Freddie spends his days. The massage therapist unties knotted muscles and alleviates new and chronic aches during sessions that last anywhere from 60 minutes to an indulgent 90 minutes. Freddie uses Swedish, deep-tissue, and sports techniques to traverse torsos with both gentle kneading and focused pressure that realigns the deeper layers of connective tissue. Alternatively, couples or a client and their favorite teddy bear can recline on tables for a relaxing couples massage.
The Dental Emergency Room's team of doctors and dental assistants foster a gentle, stress-free environment in their state-of-the-art office. While always happy to help with emergency care, the team advocates regular exams to catch dental problems while they remain small and treatable. When aesthetic reconstruction is in order, they bolster smiles with services such as dental crowns, bridges, and implants. The staff further spoils their patients with seven-day-a-week appointment times and extended evening hours Monday–Thursday, ideal for busy professionals and vampires with toothaches.
At Twin Cities Dental’s locations in Champlin and St. Anthony, the staff and doctors work hard to accommodate busy schedules with evening and Saturday appointments. They compliment those efforts with services accomplished using the latest technology such as digital x-rays, which provide more comprehensive views of teeth while limiting exposure to radiation.
Dr. Collin Hatcher has led the staff of Cedar Cliff Dental Center in tending smiles since he founded the practice in 1985. He enthusiastically embraces new dental technologies such as laser dentistry and Invisalign, which gets teeth to straighten up their act with clear aligners rather than threats of military school. He and his team cover the spectrum of dental services from general cleanings and checkups to teeth whitening. They also practice holistic dentistry, which focuses on the mouth's connection to the rest of the body, preserving natural teeth, and educating patients about alternatives to traditional dental procedures.
