Thirty years ago, Concerned Dental Care was founded with the philosophy that dentists should concern themselves with people first and foremost. The staff's dedication to their patients fueled the practice's growth, and today a team of dentists and hygienists adheres to that original vision as they set about their work tending to teeth at six different offices.
Friendly advice about oral hygiene accompanies each tooth cleaning. Low-radiation digital x-rays help the staff take a closer look at patients' dental health without shrinking themselves down and taking a hike through clients' molars. Then, the doctors work with their patients to address any problems by poring over the practice's sizable array of treatment options to find the right course of action. In addition to regular dental upkeep, the staff can shine up smiles with cosmetic services such as teeth whitening and porcelain veneers.

Alleviating painful or otherwise disruptive symptoms only accounts for half of the treatment philosophy at Think Acupuncture. With an appreciation for traditional methods as well as modern medical knowledge, the practice's licensed acupuncturists also look to strengthen the body's self-healing capabilities. To accomplish this, the therapists can use precisely placed acupuncture needles, aromatic moxibustion treatments, or Chinese herbal medicine, aiming to restore a balanced flow of the chi?the body's natural energy. When internal harmony is regained, organ systems are better able to function and interact as they collectively address the underlying conditions that may ultimately be responsible for clients' aches and pains. The holistic focus of these approaches promotes a sense of well-being that takes physical, mental, and emotional health into equal consideration.

"The finest blade stays in the scabbard." It might seem counterintuitive to relate this mantra to a sword-fighting technique, but it rules the Iaido sword combat class at Okami Dojo. That's because the most important aspect of Iaido is avoiding bloodshed altogether. When combat is inevitable, Iaido teaches practitioners to control each movement precisely: removal of sword from scabbard, strike, wiping the blade clean, and re-sheathing it.
Along with Iaido, the dojo's instructors also teach another Japanese-born martial art: jujutsu. Through forceful pins, locks, and throws, a jujutsu practitioner can incapacitate an armed opponent with ease.
