Doctors Michael Narodovich, Jim Robinson, and Binh Dao treat patients with standard dental services, such as dental implants, Zoom! whitening, and Invisalign braces, as well as services that go beyond general dentistry, such as treatments for sleep apnea and TMJ, a joint disorder. To keep their offices clean, the staff uses a modern sterilization system that exceeds OSHA requirements. Additionally, they forgo tap water for distilled bottled water to eliminate outside contamination from city-water-plant machines or supervillains who dump mind-control serum in the pipes.
Star Smiles Dental Group's Drs. Aiman Aboelala and Mahmoud Salama perform everything from regular checkups to teeth whitening to oral surgery. The dental group staff is well versed in the languages of English, Arabic, Spanish, Klingon, Russian, and Bosnian/Croatian.
A wildly successful alternative to traditional day spas—its more than 300 locations blanket 36 states and half a dozen countries—Planet Beach Contempo Spa is a futuristic relaxation station where state-of-the-art machines administer all spa and tanning services. These friendly automatons sometimes replace familiar treatments, as in the Luminous facial, a light-based service that delivers blemish-busting results similar to those of a conventional facial. But other equipment maps out new spa territory entirely: the Hydro-Derma Fusion chamber moisturizes the whole body with nutrient-rich steam in order to offset the effects of a dry climate or a rear-end collision with a salt truck. Other machines whiten teeth, spray tan skin, and massage muscles.
Planet Beach operates on a gym-style membership system, meaning members purchase packages or pay flat monthly rates. As members spend more time at the spa, they get to know the helpful assistants who are always on hand to demonstrate how to use the equipment without activating its ability to cry.
Smiles West's dentists and oral specialists tackle all levels of dentistry from general exams to orthodontics, oral surgery, and cosmetic whitening. Each of the seven locations uses state-of-the-art equipment?including intraoral cameras and digital x-rays?to provide the most thorough examinations possible. During more intensive procedures, they enhance comfort by administering sedatives or sprinkling teeth with fairy dust.
At EyeCandy Sunless Spa’s two locations, the staff specializes in custom airbrush spray tans and eyelash extensions. All spray-tan and eyelash artists are licensed cosmetologists or aestheticians, led by owner Meri, a beauty industry and tanning veteran. Along with bronzing bods and beautifying eyelash fringe, the spa also offers teeth-whitening services.
Since 1980, Capitol Dental Group's presiding Doctor of Dental Surgery, Gregory Senter, has revived timeworn teeth with cosmetic dentistry services, implanting veneers and crowns and performing laser teeth whitening and bonding. He and his expert staff begin each appointment with a complimentary consultation, during which they discuss the patient?s desires and investigate the condition of chompers. Before bonding durable veneers or implants to incisors in order to whiten and align grins, Dr. Senter consults with a set of dental x-rays to determine which teeth are suitable and which contain hidden prizes. He also specializes in brightening smiles, either removing stubborn stains in-office with two-hour laser bleaching appointments or sending patients home with custom trays, which they then wear two to three times per week for up to a month. In the onsite laboratory, he and his team forge custom dentures, using only high-quality materials, such as Renaissance-era swords, to create natural-looking sets of teeth.
