The folks at Children's Choice Pediatric Dental Care do their darnedest to make sure kids actually look forward to going to the dentist. In a waiting area adorned with brightly colored murals, kids can play video games, watch movies, or entertain younger siblings by staging a healthcare debate in the toddler play area. Each treatment chair is equipped with a video screen to keep youngsters entertained and relaxed during meticulous cleanings and exams. Dr. Jeffrey Saladin and his team of caring professionals place an emphasis on gaining patients? trust and teaching them the importance of prevention and proper home care, ensuring the health of their teeth and gums for years to come.
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.
Dr. Bryan Randolph is a children's dentist and a father. He has years of experience, a master's in pharmacology, and a friendly staff to support him, but it's being a parent that influences his practice the most. From the minute kids walk in, it's clear that The Tooth Station is a place designed just for them. The waiting room is filled with jungle murals, trees, and toys to accommodate even the littlest guests. And in the treatment room, nervous kiddos can snuggle into a parent's lap while Dr. Randolph sets to work. He and his staff also have experience and training in working with kids who have special needs.

Many dentists use a UV light to whiten their patient’s teeth, but only the beauty experts at Twilight Teeth reasoned that clients could use the same light to tan their skin while whitening their teeth. The UV lights of their tanning beds shine on bodies and illuminate smiles, comfortably held open by a mouth guard and coated in gel. The gel activates under the light and contains 25% peroxide—among the highest concentrations in the industry. Since the gel is painted on instead of held in place by a whitening tray, it can brighten high beams with minimal discomfort. Clients who can’t stay at the tanning salon can take home a kit, which substitutes a portable UV light or a mason jar filled with baby stars.
