Not many artists can call themselves dentists, but dentist Steven Weinstein can certainly call himself an artist. It was Dr. Weinstein’s passion and talent for sculpture that led him into the field of cosmetic dentistry, where his artwork is now put on display in the mouths of his many satisfied patients. Inside his boutique-style office, clients can enjoy any number of creature comforts, from massage chairs and virtual movie glasses to the complimentary paraffin hand treatments included with every service. Dr. Weinstein’s nationally recognized advancements in dentistry are reflected in the office’s diverse cosmetic and restorative solutions, which include basic preventive care, crowns, veneers, and teeth-whitening treatments for those prone to drinking from ink pots.
Steve and Kim Weiner take pride in their ability to mesh medical-grade wellness treatments with a relaxing, spa-like atmosphere. The co-owners began their careers as an aesthetic equipment salesman and a paramedical aesthetician respectively, giving them extensive professional insight into the role that technology can play in rejuvenating clients? appearances. Their spa embraces some of these technologically based treatments, including infrared body wraps, teeth whitening and hair removal with cosmetic laser systems, and lipotron skin-tightening sessions, which use radio frequencies to firm skin tone and broadcast warning messages to crow?s-feet. The center also offers basic spa treatments, such as massages and deep-cleansing facials.
"I'm an artist and I started out in cosmetics … I just really enjoy helping people look great," says Alichia Ryan. Whether it is through the application of Extreme Lashes extensions, makeup, or an Infinity Sun airbrush tan, Alichia takes joy in enhancing appearances and boosting confidence levels. She has been a licensed aesthetician since 1997 and once owned her own Merle Norman studio outside of Los Angeles. Always learning about the latest beauty techniques and technologies, she holds certifications in microdermabrasion and permanent cosmetics, as well as an endorsement for Ad Vinci teeth whitening from the Vitruvius Man.
Supervised by an on-staff medical director, Cara Bella Studio's staff brings its A game to rejuvenate entire bodies with massages and med-spa treatments. Trained massage therapists wring tension from muscles to reduce stress and widen range of movement and also prop up postures by whispering pep talks to vertebrae. Nonsurgical med-spa services such as chemical peels and microdermabrasion treatments aim to liberate facescapes from fine lines, and teeth whitening and eyelash extensions amp up smiles and winks, respectively.
Since his father was a WWII naval doctor and small-town surgeon, Dr. Lawrence Kuljis was introduced to the medical profession at a young age. He drew inspiration from his dad’s thoughtful care of friends and neighbors, enrolling in school at Marquette University and eventually building a successful career in the dental arts. Today, Dr. Kuljis returns the favor by caring for his still-active 98-year-old father and continuing the family tradition of healing through preventive care and dental procedures.
Ably led by office manager Lina—who happens to be Dr. Kuljis’ wife—the friendly staff of qualified hygienists and dental assistants pride themselves on creating a warm, welcoming atmosphere. Guests relax in the sunny, spacious lounge before retiring to the comfort of a treatment room with breathtaking views of the area skyline and chairside computer terminals for easy access to records and saved Minesweeper games. Dr. Kuljis and his team safeguard long-term oral health with regular checkups and digital oral x-rays and perform smile makeovers with cosmetic treatments, crowns, veneers, and bridges. Patients may also opt for a complimentary hand massage during visits to help them relax during their service.
