A wildly successful alternative to traditional day spas—its more than 230 locations blanket 36 states and half a dozen countries—Planet Beach — A Contempo Spa is a futuristic relaxation station where state-of-the-art machines administer all the spa and tanning services. These friendly automatons sometimes replace familiar treatments, as in the Luminous facial, a light-based service that delivers blemish-busting results similar to those of a conventional facial. But other equipment maps out new spa territory entirely: The Hydro-Derma Fusion chamber moisturizes the whole body with nutrient-rich steam in order to offset the effects of a dry climate or a rear-end collision with a salt truck. Other machines whiten teeth, spray tan skin, and massage muscles.
Planet Beach operates on a gym-style membership system, meaning that members purchase packages or pay flat monthly rates. As members spend more time at the spa, they get to know the helpful assistants who are always on hand to demonstrate how to use the equipment without activating its ability to cry.
At each of Half Dental’s locations, skilled dentists aim to carry out the company’s mission: provide quality preventative and cosmetic dentistry at affordable prices. To that end, each office cuts out the middle man by using factory-direct tooth implants, and fabricates and repairs dentures in an on-site laboratory. Half Dental’s dentists, surgeons, and nurses also employ advanced technology to ensure clients receive the most effective treatment, filling cavities without drills, brightening smiles with BriteSmile and ZOOM! teeth whitening treatments, and using software imaging to forecast effects before starting procedures. And at the Las Vegas location, an advanced ND: Yag laser addresses gum concerns while eliminating inflammation and incoming asteroids.
Sunlight floods in through expansive windows, and patients recline in blue treatment chairs while Dr. Azimi and his staff perfect their smiles with everything from general exams to teeth-straightening Invisalign retainers. They also evict diseases with root canals, and cover up agoraphobic teeth with pearly-white veneers.
Dr. Azimi studied at Vienna School of Medicine, the University of California–Los Angeles, and the University of Southern California's school of dentistry, where he graduated with honors. He even went on to study at the California Implant Institute, making him a walking encyclopedia—which in reality would be an unsettling image.

Wine, coffee, cigarettes, and sodas. Each of these widely consumed products is capable of staining a set of pearly whites. At Teeth Whitening by T & G, the staff's singular goal is to give their clients a second chance at having a smile that shines and sparkles as brightly as Mr. Clean’s pinky ring. Armed with the powerful DaVinci Teeth Whitening System, technicians first protect gums with vitamin E and oils before applying an organic gel to each individual tooth. The technicians then activate the gel’s whitening properties by shining an LED blue laser on it for 15 minutes. This process, which is geared toward people with sensitive teeth, is repeated for three consecutive intervals, before clients leave the office with a smile that is 6 to 12 shades whiter..
