Alpenglow Dental's team of five practitioners—all Utah natives—track down the latest research and employ modern technology to maintain oral health at four local practices. Their spectrum of services encompasses many mouth-based needs, whether patients seek a regular cleaning or need veneers to conceal misaligned teeth. ClearCorrect invisible braces use removable aligners instead of metal wires for straighter smiles and more intimidating growls. The dentists are also able to lift stains from age, coffee consumption, and smoking with whitening treatments.
Dr. Todd Daynes and Dr. Francis Wapner, the ophthalmologists behind Advanced Eye Care, wield experience gleaned from thousands of surgeries, exams, and medical evaluations when correcting ocular issues. The office outfits eyes in a number of stylishly sight-enhancing frames or secretly spiffs up vision with a pair of contacts. For those looking to shed their eyewear altogether, the doctors terraform corneal surfaces during traditional LASIK treatments performed with a microkeratome, often leaving patients with 20/20 vision or better and reducing their need for glasses, contacts, or large-print maps of their living rooms.
A graduate of massage and chiropractic school, Dr. Jared Mangum now tends to spines and posterior muscles with services that draw on his medical knowledge and nimble fingers. Guided by cutting-edge research conducted by his peers and at his own evidence-based practice, Dr. Magnum tailors massages to focus on individual aches and pains. His signature cocktail of deep-tissue, Swedish, and trigger-point modalities keeps stressors guessing as he surrounds them on all sides with plentiful soft-tissue work.
Though Dr. Mangum certainly counts relaxation among his many goals, one would be mistaken to think of A Balanced Life Chiropractic as simply a spa. The center earns the final word of its name from a suite of medically oriented therapies that address chronic spinal conditions. Chiropractic adjustments and flexion-distraction treatments, among others, aim to neutralize ailments caused by accrued tension or winters spent on iceberg-riddled waterbeds. While the doctor arrives at a diagnosis, staffers ask that you help yourself to the office’s WiFi and a complimentary beverage.
A young Dan Clark was drawn to holistic healing methods after witnessing the efficacy of acupuncture and herbal medicine against his father's Epstein-Barr virus. His fascination with the body's ability to heal itself and to fit inside a high-school locker encouraged him to study massage therapy and acupuncture, and he now guides the treatments he administers at his own clinic. With a repertoire of techniques that, aside from acupuncture, includes herbal remedies, cupping, and moxibustion, Dan aids patients in coping with a wide range of ailments, such as insomnia, headaches, and anxiety.
Millcreek Chiropractic brings bodywork bliss to bone bags rattled by aches and pains from botched shark-jumping attempts. During the chiropractic exam ($85), the doctor will review your medical history and you'll undergo basic testing of orthopedics, muscles, and reflexes. Then you'll receive a 45-minute massage ($45) from Millcreek Chiropractic's licensed massage therapist. Tissue toxins will be tossed out, circulation will be jump-started, and flexi-mobility will be restored.
As a triathlete and chiropractor who has worked with various professional athletes, Doctor of Chiropractic Michael Cerami knows that treating an athlete is different than treating a regular patient, as athletes are under great physical demands and often have limited time to recover from injury. That's why, at Utah Sports And Wellness, he combines what he calls "energy medicine" with muscle testing, bio mechanics, and soft-tissue work to treat athletic injuries and curb the need for surgery. He recommends various supplements, frequency-specific-microcurrent therapy, and the use of his hyperbaric oxygen chamber to keep athletes in peak physical condition and playing in the game, instead of sitting on the sidelines eating dandelions.:m]]
