GF Dental's presiding practitioners, Drs. Elizabeth Williamson and Theresa Heaton, foster dental health by stressing preventive care. Thorough exams and cleanings are the dental duo's crux, as they help patients maintain complete oral health and fend off decay with cancer screenings, x-rays, flossing, and sealant. Mouths or teeth with visible ailments can benefit from the office's range of cosmetic services; the staff fills in dental gaps with natural-looking and durable replacements such as composite fillings, porcelain veneers, and grilled steaks.
Mirages are famed tricksters of the desert, illusions generated by heat waves and tired minds that reportedly depict comfort, safety, and luxury. Rowlett's Mirage Tanning Spa also summons such visions, though its many amenities are quite solid. The spa's staff foregoes the basic 20-minute tanning beds in favor of more opulent models, such as the standup booths or VIP and Platinum beds. The staff uses its bottled light in other ways as well—whitening teeth and smoothing skin to name a few. Staffers can also cut out the need for UV radiation altogether with Mystic spray-tan booths, darkening skin with a concoction of melanin-encouraging components. Mirage even offers automated massages, relaxing muscles with HydroMassage beds that use pressurized water to emulate the feeling of futuristic massage robots at work.
At Ace's Gourmet Paninis, culinary-school grad Chef Van presides over an unlikely marriage between the Italian-born panini and the flavors of Southern comfort fare. He presses only quality ingredients into his sandwiches, including three signature paninis loaded with chicken, beef brisket, or pulled pork slathered in house barbecue sauce. His menu also flaunts a separate breakfast section that highlights paninis and burritos stuffed with more eggs and meats than a vending machine for bodybuilders. His renditions of childhood favorites, such as peanut butter and jelly, even please pintsize palates. Patrons can settle in to surf free WiFi in the eatery or grab a takeout container to feast at home.:
Doctor of Chiropractic Jay Ferguson and his staff follow the guiding lights of compassion, personalization, and thoroughness as they assess and mend frames. Whether they're adjusting displaced vertebrae or treating bodily ailments through the ear stimulation of auriculotherapy, they take the time to get to know their patients. Ferguson and his staff also help to alleviate injuries with massage therapy, electrical muscle stimulation, and cryotherapy, in which a cooling gel works to reduce swelling and attract the massaging hugs of polar bears.
Following in the footsteps of the countless reflexologists who have come before them, the practitioners at ENJOY Foot Spa aim to alleviate tension and stress by manipulating pressure points in the hands and feet. By using maps that show which organs or glands each pressure point corresponds to, they can ease discomfort throughout the body and possibly even boost overall energy levels. Though focused on the appendages, ENJOY's treatments also include massages of the upper body, back, arms, and face. Some of the spa rooms have two beds, so clients may choose to enjoy their treatments individually, with a companion, or just give their purse a more comfortable place to sit.
