Three thriving locations and a slew of press from outlets such as Teen Vogue and Fox News make a strong case for the success of LaBelle Day Spas & Salons. But the true testament to the salon and spa's success lies, quite literally, in the hands of owner and skincare specialist Bella Schneider. Bella is the winner of the Les Nouvelles Esthetiques Crystal Award and has spent almost four decades helping clients including Audrey Hepburn and Michelle Pfeiffer, obtain healthy, glowing complexions.
Her humble European background led her to the salon where she would receive an apprenticeship at the young age of 14. This moment became the catalyst to her skincare career, which included earning an Economics degree in the States before opening the first LaBelle Day Spa and Salon in 1976. And even though she added two more locations by the late 1980's, the mission for each beauty haven has remained the same: to provide European-quality treatments that are science-based.
Bella and her team—which includes her daughter and grandson—use her personally-formulated line of products to ensure effective results during each service, which range from vitamin-infused facials to mani-pedis enhanced by essential oils and advanced body-contouring Endermologie treatments. LaBella's team also guarantees an exceptional experience by offering spa guests a relaxing foot soak. In the salons, master stylists and colorists customized hair services by using advanced balayage and precision cutting techniques, while Pilates instructors teach private lessons so clients can perfect their posture, alignment, and grace.
As a member of the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry and a proponent of preventive care, Babak Mostaan, DDS, and his skilled staff enhance both the aesthetics and health of smiles. Dr. Mostaan equips his office with the latest cosmetic techniques, including Invisalign and Zoom teeth whitening, to help him perform a slew of cosmetic and restorative services, ranging from routine cleanings to root canals. Within the comfortable, friendly confines of the office, patients can relax under the care of a dental crew that continually buoys their education through ongoing lectures, conferences, and conventions, as well as daily dramatic readings of toothpaste ingredients.
Dr. Nazanin Morshedi helms Palo Alto Dental Center with passion—she brings a love of her craft, which she considers an art, to each appointment, and strives to put a smile on her patients’ faces. Dr. Morshedi partners with a staff of dental professionals, each with at least 10 years of experience in the field. Though she specializes in neuromuscular dentistry, the doc offers a range of services, from general dentistry—such as root canals and bridges—to cosmetic fixes, including teeth whitening and invisalign. She uses the latest techniques culled from educational seminars, and provides pain-free dentistry with her gentle touch and make-believe tools—which she still thoroughly cleans after each appointment.

Dr. Veena Vamadev isn't content with treating just her current patients. As an endodontist in India, she helped train the next generation of dentists by teaching at the university level. After immigrating to the United States, she earned her doctorate and now keeps patients’ teeth in tip-top shape at Camino Family Dentistry. She performs regular checkups, covers cracked or tattooed teeth with veneers, and uses her endodontic expertise to repair damaged teeth using root canals.
Challenging dental procedures such as multiple-unit bridges and full-mouth reconstructions are just a day?s work for Dr. Chandra Kodey. But the talented dentist also finds time for the simpler things in the dental world, such as routine checkups and a few cranks on the ol' chattering teeth. At Miramonte Dental, she uses all-digital equipment and offers privacy with private treatment rooms. Hours include evenings and weekends to accommodate busy schedules.
