Three thriving locations and a slew of press from outlets such as Teen Vogue and Fox News make a strong case for the success of LaBelle Day Spas & Salons. But the true testament to the salon and spa's success lies, quite literally, in the hands of owner and skincare specialist Bella Schneider. Bella is the winner of the Les Nouvelles Esthetiques Crystal Award and has spent almost four decades helping clients including Audrey Hepburn and Michelle Pfeiffer, obtain healthy, glowing complexions.
Her humble European background led her to the salon where she would receive an apprenticeship at the young age of 14. This moment became the catalyst to her skincare career, which included earning an Economics degree in the States before opening the first LaBelle Day Spa and Salon in 1976. And even though she added two more locations by the late 1980's, the mission for each beauty haven has remained the same: to provide European-quality treatments that are science-based.
Bella and her team—which includes her daughter and grandson—use her personally-formulated line of products to ensure effective results during each service, which range from vitamin-infused facials to mani-pedis enhanced by essential oils and advanced body-contouring Endermologie treatments. LaBella's team also guarantees an exceptional experience by offering spa guests a relaxing foot soak. In the salons, master stylists and colorists customized hair services by using advanced balayage and precision cutting techniques, while Pilates instructors teach private lessons so clients can perfect their posture, alignment, and grace.
Drs. Sara Creighton and Jared Pool take on inter-grin ailments with freshly minted technology and equipment at Washington Square Park Dental. Inside the specially designed modern office, ceiling-mounted TVs captivate patients reclining in cushy black chairs as oral experts examine chompers and penetrate enamel or jammed office safes with handheld digital x-rays. The dentists drill in the importance of prevention and patient education as they clean teeth and scour mouths for disease. Also specializing in endodontic care, bridges, fillings, and cosmetic procedures such as whitening and veneers, staffers unearth healthy smiles gleaming like a freshly waxed crystal ball. The eco-friendly, LEED-certified space welcomes clients into a chic waiting area flooded with natural light and bordered by a cocoa-toned bench.
Patients at Randhawa Dental Corporation open wide to place their dental health in the capable hands of highly skilled dentists and their staff. Studying dentistry in India, Australia, and the United States has equipped Gurjit S. Randhawa, D.D.S., M.D.S., with skills that earned him the title of Best Cosmetic Dentist in KRON4's Best of the Bay 2009, 2010 and 2011 awards, making it the third year in a row that he has won. He is also an Elite Preferred Provider of Invisalign, who enjoys a "Top 1% in North America" ranking because of his extensive experience with the Invisalign system. Dr. Randhawa leads a team of dentists and specialists to coddle teeth for their patients.
As a prosthodontist, Dr. Aparna Subramanian specializes in the use of dental prosthetics to create straight, alabaster smiles. This includes using titanium implants coupled with crowns or bridges, as well as veneers that mask dental imperfections. Teeth-whitening treatments brighten dingy enamel and Invisalign
trains wayward teeth to stand in formation without the outdated look of braces. Dr. Subramanian and her team also conduct routine cleanings complete with digital X-rays. They also adhere to green-minded practices, including using recycled paper products, biodegradable sterilization solutions, and making sure each patient's mouth is tightly closed when not in use.
Dr. Randall Medefesser of Camilo Riaño Orthodontics brightens patients' smiles quickly and efficiently while reducing the practice's environmental impact with paperless statements, bamboo flooring, and recycled-glass tiles. LumaLite whitening edits out tooth blemishes without the traditional rubber eraser during three 15-minute sessions. After a screening, Dr. Medefesser coats bicuspids and their cohorts in a gel before catalyzing it with a specialized light to whiten chompers by up to eight shades. Patients depart the dental offices with gleaming mouth pearls after roughly one hour of treatment. Some whitening patients experience minor tingling sensations when drinking cold liquids or brushing their teeth with a feather.
Having treated the soulful smiles of both Miss California and Miss Mission Viejo, the toothsome staff of Gateway Dental Group glamorizes grills with its comprehensive dental services. Bicuspids are brightened with Zoom! teeth whitening, an in-office procedure that utilizes a light-activated proprietary gel to break up stains and discoloration on faded mouth ivory.
For the confidence to bite into the pulpy flesh of a ripe grapefruit, your mouth depends on beauteous gnashers. Today's Groupon will turn your teeth into mighty luminaries of aesthetic grace with an exam, x-rays, and cleaning from The Dental Suite in the Financial District for $59 (a $415 value). With a long year of chewing, gnawing, and whittling ahead, a toolbox of quality teeth is your brightest and smartest ally.
Dr. John VanCamp believes that beautifying patients' smiles is the third thing a dentist should do. More importantly, he believes that dental care should improve holistic well-being throughout the entire body by stemming the spread of infection, and then preventing future outbreaks. He refers to this treatment philosophy as minimally invasive dentistry: a progressive system of techniques intended to restore form and function before aesthetics.
To better accomplish these goals, Dr. VanCamp routinely seeks out innovative technology for his practice. Digital x-rays take quality images while emitting a small fraction of the radiation of traditional x-rays, CEREC equipment creates porcelain crowns in-house in less than a day, and a laser system thoroughly treats cold sores or signs of gingivitis.
Dr. VanCamp's dedication to modern techniques is most prevalent in his professional hatred of mercury fillings. Determined to rid each patient of these antiquated and potentially harmful fillings, he thoroughly removes all traces of mercury and, instead, adds modern materials that don't share mercury's more hazardous traits. Dr. VanCamp and his staff then safely dispose of the spent fillings using an environmentally friendly system that separates the mercury as biohazard waste.
Safe mercury disposal is only one example of Dr. VanCamp's dedication to environmental responsibility. The staff also conserves paper by working with computerized charts and digital insurance claims. Plus, the office space itself features everything from eco-friendly paint to energy-efficient lighting that only uses three colors of the rainbow.
Union Street Dental Care's Dr. Stanley Dintcho, DDS, has seen multiple medical technologies come and go in the last four decades. But the Laser Assisted New Attachment Procedure (LANAP) stands out, as it allows him to treat periodontal disease with unparalleled precision and convenience. Dr. Dintcho told Marianne Favro of the NBC Bay Area news "it's the most impressive new technology he's seen in 35 years."
During the treatment, Dr. Dintcho passes a fiber-optic laser along the gum line to vaporize decay while leaving surrounding tissue intact. Because the tool is minimally invasive and very thin—about the thickness of three human hairs, or the dental floss used by leprechauns—the procedure involves less discomfort, fewer hours in the dentist's chair, and faster recovery times than traditional scalpel-and-suture procedures. He completes the process by cleaning the root surfaces with ultrasonic waves and then sealing the area with a different laser setting. The procedure typically only requires one visit to complete, and patients usually return to work the same day.
As a complement to this innovative procedure, Dr. Dintcho rounds out his menu of services with preventive, cosmetic, and emergency treatments.
"Personalized, Comfortable," says the old-timey blue neon sign perched above Sansome Dental Care. Dr. Sean Moran, DDS, and his team are committed to taking the dread, discomfort and (for some) extreme anxiety out of dentistry, and are so confident in their work that the sign stands as a mere statement of fact. Whether it's a simple cleaning, a heavy-duty root canal, Invisalign adjustments or a cosmetic bleaching, this Financial District practice has been earning the trust of everyone with teeth for years. They're eager to help people keep that pearly-white smile looking confident, without making the actual experience an unpleasant one. Patients listen to music while they get their work done, and the white, clean procedure rooms are comforting in their efficiency. Dental care is serious business here, but that doesn’t mean it has to be frown-inducing.
Can the science of dentistry actually be moving forward? Isn’t the process painful no matter who’s scraping under the gum line? Not at Advanced Dentistry, where Dr. Andrew Woelfle, DDS, and his team are committed to comforting the squeamish, the tartar-laden and the fastidious brushers alike. Dental-phobes and those who are dreading the day of reckoning when they’re busted for not having had a cleaning in three years need no longer worry. Not only can you watch a DVD while your mouth is agape, comparative X-rays will show the accruing benefits of all that flossing you’ve been keeping up on. Plus the Battery Street location is convenient to the Financial District’s movers and shakers. Move over, Esquire’s Oscars after-party – Dr. Woelfle’s patients walk out with a swag bag full of hygienic booty.
At Alliance Dental & Orthodontics, Drs. Bing Xia and Katrina Le join their specialties under one roof to cover a full gamut of general, orthodontic, restorative, and cosmetic dental services for patients of all ages. By staying up-to-date through continuing education and attending sleepover orthodontist camps, Dr. Bing is able to use advanced orthodontic techniques, such as ceramic braces, behind-teeth braces, and Invisalign, to straighten teeth. Dr. Katrina Le restores smiles with veneers, dentures, bridges, and implants.
Dr. Kenneth Karamyan has been practicing dentistry since he graduated from UCLA in 2002, mastering dental services that range from implants to whitening to the installation of shark teeth. The office offers plenty of non-cosmetic treatments as well: root canals, denture fittings, TMJ treatments, and even orthodontics are all available at the practice, which is located just outside the Presidio.
At Bonita Dental Care, Dr. Lydia Wong makes dental services more comfortable with a warm and attentive chairside manner. She is highly trained in procedures ranging from veneers to smile-straightening Invisalign treatments to boot. She uses advanced CEREC software to create porcelain crowns or tiny replicas of The Thinker in a single, convenient visit.
Kevin Growney, DDS spruces up smiles with cosmetic treatments six days a week at two different locations. His services range from whitening—including wiping lipstick off teeth and dissolving stubborn tetracycline stains—to orthodontia and implants.
