The continually educated mouth specialists of Sunshine Dental keep smiles healthy with a tag team of preventative dentistry and modern technology. During the appointment, a licensed dentist scours the mouth for signs of decay, cavities, and lost gummy bears (a $97 value) with an attention to detail normally only exhibited by pickleball referees. X-rays, including four bitewings, an extraoral, and a panoramic (a $234 total value), allow the certified tooth whisperer to inspect cuisine crushers in greater depth in a set of black-and-white snapshots. Take-home whitening treatments evict the yellow from teeth with stain-fighting bleach and a sheriff-delivered court order. Mouths that return dutifully to the dental office every six months for a checkup receive additional treatments for free.
With 40 years of oral-arts experience, Dr. Ken Hamada oversees a small, intimate practice that's devoted to providing personalized dental pampering. Beginning with a full exam and oral-cancer screening ($85), the one-hour comprehensive tooth-tinkering package includes a panorex x-ray ($125) and four bitewing x-rays ($60), followed by a basic cleaning ($97) and fluoride treatment ($40). Dr. Hamada also helps brighten and beautify bicuspids with his 30-minute exam and whitening package. Tooth technicians first march molars through a limited oral exam ($60) and four bitewing x-rays ($60) before teaching them how to tint themselves using the take-home Venus White system ($85) combined with simple meditations and a dried spaghetti noodle.
Acupuncture Associates offers a wide range of holistic services designed to help manage pain and stress. Acupuncture sessions are performed by the skilled and certified hands of Vincent Valeriano and customized to suit each patient's needs, lasting up to 45 minutes depending on the amount of treatment required. Using a series of tiny needles, acupuncturists promote blood flow to key areas of the body, which can help relieve pain and tension. The expert manipulation and placement of these needles may alleviate back and neck pain, migraine headaches, arthritis, tendonitis, and can aid in belly-button lint removal.
At Richmond Beach Yoga, Angeline Johnston and Glenn Tousignant combine their passions for teaching and healing—Angeline has a master’s in teaching and Glenn has focused on social work—with extensive yoga backgrounds. They teach several styles of yoga, including Vinyasa, meditative Yin, and Hatha yoga, all while encouraging students to work at their own pace and use props to help build their strength and stability. Sunday-morning meditation sessions and special events—like a workshop on chakras—address the mind, spirit, and the spirit that's been following you since you visited that bed and breakfast. Angeline and Glenn also offer personalized corrections during class, modifying postures for students to help prevent strain and injury.
The needling treatments performed at Shoreline Community Acupuncture take place in a relaxing space furnished with clusters of plush recliners. In this communal studio, clients bask in each other's calm healing energy, far away from the ringing of cell phones and the playing of bugles.
