Dr. Isaac Kashani didn’t always know he was going to be a dentist, but looking back at his upbringing, you’d think he was born for it. By age 15, Dr. Kashani was already combining his intelligence and superior manual dexterity in junior-college classes and auto-mechanics courses that he took in addition to a full schedule of high-school classes. Now, his years of experience and obsession with perfecting even the smallest details manifest themselves in a full menu of cosmetic and restorative dental services. Additionally, patients at Lasting Impressions can benefit from the work of Dr. Kashani's colleague, Dr. Sargon Lazarof, who invented the same-day implant.

When it comes to the cakes at Passions Pastries, no two bites are every quite the same.

Even her classic flavors incorporate unique elements, with carrot cupcakes sweetened with chunks of pineapple and chocolate-on-chocolate cupcakes topped with chocolate Italian buttercream. Her skills at baking, frosting, and keeping cakes from growing too large didn't just win her a spot on every local sweet tooth's radar; they also earned her a spot on the Food Network's popular Cupcake Wars.
