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.
SunSational Tanning provides bronze seekers with one Mystic Tan spray-tan booth and 14 tanning beds in a 3,500-square-foot tanning salon. Tanners can step into a standup Mystic Tan spray-tan booth, where a mechanical airbrush travels from head to pinky toe, spritzing the body with a custom sunless formulation that results in a deep, long-lasting bronze that can't be bought in a pawn shop. Clients can also opt for Sudatonic infrared body wraps that promote weight loss, red light therapy that stimulates collagen production in the skin, and UV tanning beds. The tanning salon also features a coffee house that serves gourmet coffee and offers free WiFi so customers can research next season's tanning trends. The shop sports a merchandise section that includes apparel and skin care products from Designer Skin, California Tan, and Australian Gold.
People gather around a fireplace inside a candle-lined room. Any anxiety dissipates as they soak up the heat and leaf through colorful magazines. They’re not inside a spa or a cozy lodge—they’re in the office of Collins Family Dentistry, a practice that’s served the Spokane community for more than 40 years and is helmed by father and son Dr. Ken Collins Sr. and Dr. Chris Collins](http://www.thespokanedentist.com/about). The duo tends to choppers with the utmost care, focusing on patient comfort as they reshape gum tissue with gentle lasers and straighten smiles with Invisalign aligners. Extractions are a rarity at this practice, and when inserting dental implants, the dentists enlist the help of i-CAT scans, which help them plan the entire procedure ahead of time. To stay on top of their game, both dentists complete more than 100 hours of continuing education each year. The same bricks that flank the fireplace line the exam room and reception desk, encouraging patients to relax during checkups, cleanings, and the gripping MacGyver plotlines that comprise most people’s daydreams. Experienced staffers complement this warm atmosphere with their friendly personalities, helping patients book appointments in the office, over the phone, or through a convenient online scheduler.
With more than 30 collective years of experience between them, Dr. Craig Simmons and associate Dr. Rusty Reese toughen up teeth with an arsenal of cosmetic, restorative, and preventative procedures. During a comprehensive routine exam, the Simmons team notes areas and tissues in need of further attention. Diagnostic x-rays let the docs further probe the intricacies of each patient's pearly whites to reveal trouble spots, signs of decay, and other photo-shoot crashers. Inside Simmons's small, homey office, all exam rooms come entertainingly outfitted with flat-screen TVs designed to detract from buzzy tools and the contented "ahs" of other mouth owners.

Dr. Nathan Cotton and his staff of mandible mavens treat tusks to one-hour Lumibrite whitening, designed to brighten smiles by up to eight shades. The process combines an application of a patented substance that reduces tooth sensitivity with a specialty whitening gel, enhanced with fluoride to help prevent cavities and enamel landslides. The gel’s powers activate with a UV-free light, which eliminates the need for sunblock or a face mask, as the client relaxes into a vibrating massage chair. After a thorough rinse and removal of the gel, the friendly technician sends gleaming mouth ivories on their way. Cotton Family Dental also invites purchasers of this deal to take 30% off a cleaning, exam, and x-rays. For the best results, a standard cleaning is recommended prior to Lumibrite whitening.
Invisalign straightens crooked chompers with a combination of highly advanced 3-D computer graphics and the spells of old-fashioned orthodontia. The Invisalign process eschews cumbersome braces for clear, removable aligners that are virtually invisible to the unclothed eye. An initial 30-minute exam, including digital images and photos, paves the way for a flurry of calibrated teeth sheaths that are designed to slowly shift walnut crackers into perfect alignment. The total cost of an Invisalign treatment varies for each customer (it can run anywhere from $3,500 to $8,000); this Groupon gets you $1,000 toward that final cost. View some Invisalign FAQs here.
