New Smile Dentistry relies on a balance of experience and modern technology. A prime example: their cosmetic imaging process, which renders an image of what a person's mouth might look like after various treatments. Of course, it's up to the dentist's skills to bring that smile into reality––whether through veneers, bonding, or implants. The entire staff at New Smile also takes care to handle patients gently, and uses state-of-the art sterilization equipment to eliminate germs.
In addition to these sorts of cosmetic makeovers, the team at New Smile treats all ages with general dentistry, for which they rely on equipment such as digital x-rays and their own fine-tuned brains. Crowns, fillings, and implant procedures are also performed with the latest technology for patients of all ages. An oral surgeon is also on hand for any necessary surgical procedures.
Over the past four decades, Starbucks has bloomed from a single coffee shop in Seattle's Pike Place Market to more than 17,000 stores responsible for caffeinating 55 countries. The company’s smiling, green-aproned baristas have become the mascots of many people’s morning routine, pouring cups of dark, medium, and blonde roast for coffee purists and adding shots of caramel or white chocolate to more elaborate espresso creations and treats such as a Frappuccino blended beverage.
Concerned with more than flavour, Starbucks strives to fill its menu with responsibly sourced coffee, cocoa, and tea that protect the farmers and bioregions they come from. These efforts have earned the company a spot on Ethisphere's 2013 list of the world's most ethical companies.
