Led by licensed paramedical aesthetician Ariel Starr, Salon Du Soleil Medi-Spa's staff aims to send their clients home pampered, rejuvenated, and with head-turning new looks. The specialists have honed their skills in a variety of areas, sculpting new hair designs or donning flawlessly applied war paint as they battle unwanted fuzz with waxing services. The spa pamperings, which also include manicures and massages, pair with medical treatments to fully make over bods with methods including microdermabrasion, which blasts away signs of age. Salon Du Soleil's staff works to create a clean facility by completely sterilizing equipment and only telling PG-rated knock-knock jokes.
Dr. Harold Kirksey doesn't isolate his practice to the mouth. He views dentistry as a holistic profession, one that addresses oral ailments for the benefit of the entire person. Therefore, his services strive to correct root problems and restore confidence, rather than simply cancel out symptoms. His porcelain veneers, crowns, and bonding treatments act as evidence of his extensive training in cosmetic and restorative dentistry. He also straightens teeth with Invisalign braces—less conspicuous than metal braces, they're unlikely to be detected by the malevolent Brace Fairy. Before he begins any treatment, however, Dr. Kirksey discusses patients' goals during a smile design consultation, which outlines a customized plan for obtaining a more carefree grin.
Once clients are comfortably ensconced in the dentist's chair, the oral exam begins. The resident toothsperts will check each individual incisor, cuspid, bicuspid, and molar for chips, cracks, staining, and loitering Minnesota Twins, ensuring that enamel bones are sound for biting, and gums and soft tissues will be inspected for any signs of periodontal disease. The x-ray battery exposes the roots and inner sanctums of oral stalagmites to reveal any soft spots, problem areas, or cavities. When your mouth checks out as mammalian and your teeth are cleared for takeoff, the professional teeth cleaning begins. An expert cleaning removes all the buildup and surface staining that regular brushing and flossing can't—hardened tartar, hard-to-reach plaque, and bacterial graffiti along the gum line.
In more than 25 years as a dentist, Dr. Nick M. Kavouklis has operated a private practice, developed a proprietary line of dental products, and served as an expert witness for the Florida Department of Health. This diverse background tells the tale of Dr. Kavouklis's confidence and breadth of knowledge, which he brings to his clinic's general and cosmetic services. His interest in aesthetics extends to the face, which most dentists just see as the mouth's suburbs. Dr. Kavouklis draws on his study of facial anatomy to smooth mugs with Juvéderm and Botox injections.
Dr. Joshua Wyatt has known that he wanted to be a dentist ever since the fifth grade—he even looked forward to cleanings. That interest in dentistry has never wavered, and in 2009, he earned his degree in dentistry.
Within the newly remodeled interior of South Tampa Dentistry, Dr. Wyatt and his team keep teeth in mint condition with services ranging from preventive cleanings to dental implants. Patients also can opt for cosmetic procedures such as veneers or Zoom! teeth whitening.
With more than 29 years of combined experience, Drs. John M. Borchers and Michael T. Mckee care for teeth the way a kindergarten teacher cares for her class. Though they won’t teach incisors how to add or properly enunciate the pledge of allegiance, the doctors do ensure that each member of the group lives in harmony with its neighbor, maintains straight posture, and remains present and accounted for at all times. To accomplish this, Drs. Borchers and Mckee administer meticulous examinations that inspect each tooth for signs of decay and crookedness. And when teeth have gone missing altogether, dental implants can serve as permanent seat fillers, dutifully chewing on any urgently overdue homework.
