For the past quarter century, Dr. Ernest P Larios has been building up his practice by combining a warm approach that views patients as family with a slate of general, cosmetic, and orthodontic services. Both of his offices are fully equipped with the latest in dental-treatment technology. Computer systems help to ensure operations go off without a hitch, while in-office Zoom! treatments lighten teeth in one quick 60-minute session. Also cutting down on time, the advanced CEREC equipment allows the doctor to affix mouths with crowns or Beware of Tooth Fairy signs on teeth in just one office visit.
Phountain Health was founded on the theory that staying healthy involves balancing the body's pH levels. In addition to bottling pH-balancing alkaline water—soon to be available via delivery—Phountain Health hosts infrared-sauna sessions, which aim to improve circulation and oust toxins, as do the spa's ionic detoxifying footbaths. The business' communal approach can also be seen in hot-yoga classes, where clients work out together rather than sit alone on the couch sipping battery acid.
