Sleek white couches sit pristinely below a modernist chandelier, overlooking a manicured row of bamboo stalks. If guests arriving in Thornhill Smile Centre's waiting room feel as though they have taken a wrong turn into a nearby spa, that's no accident: Dr. Hagi and his corps of teeth-cleaning experts have worked for years to create the most comfortable, relaxing dental experience possible. Once inside treatment rooms, guests sink further into luxury, snuggling beneath warm blankets and using contoured pillows to cradle necks while remaining en garde for an impromptu pillow fight. Gentle vibrations massage backs during procedures while satellite radio or HDTV further distract minds from treatments. All the while, top-of-the-line technology streamlines experiences, with virtual mouth modeling, digital X-rays, and noise-dampened hand pieces.
No matter which of Polar Dental Centers’ five full-service offices a client visits, the friendly staff and doctors strive to provide a high standard of care. That's because each dentist is certified in a range of specialized treatment, including cosmetic dentistry, gum disease treatment, and teeth straightening. The centres also administer emergency care to deal with with intense pain or dumb, wisdom-less molars.
A team of experienced technicians at Yonge Eglinton Cosmetic Centre masterfully performs laser hair-removal treatments with state-of-tomorrow equipment and expertise. Unwelcome body fur shrinks away at the sight of the LightSheer diode laser system, which pulses condensed light to render surfaces such as the bikini line or underarms smooth enough to use as an impromptu dry-erase board. Additional beautification treatments include microdermabrasion and wrinkle-erasing Botox injections.
With its descriptive name and reputation for accessible service, you'd think that Walk-In Dental Clinic would be an easy business to figure out. Here, dentists with over 30 years experience conduct cosmetic, implant, and general dentistry services, keeping smiles bright for adults and kids alike. Unlike many dentist's offices, the service menu here isn't limited to mouths alone. Walk-In Dental Clinic also houses an on-site med spa, where staffers deliver massages, reroute energy with acupuncture, remove hair with lasers, and keep skin healthy with an array of facial services. The med spa also matches the dental clinic's dedication to convenience; both stay open until midnight six nights a week, accommodating everyone from kids with unexpected toothaches to owls with unwanted leg hair.
Mystic Pointe Yoga's 900-square-foot space transitions easily from a yoga studio to a hot yoga studio, thanks to infrared heaters designed to boost metabolisms, detoxify systems, and help oxygenate blood. The studio complements infrared-warmed hot yoga classes with a variety of classic programs, such as Yoga Sculpt, which tones the entire body by working free weights into poses. Core Yoga, meanwhile, focuses on building abs and other central muscle groups. Relax and Flow yoga alleviates stress without teaching students to swaddle themselves inside rolled up yoga mats. The studio also offers more cardio-intense fitness classes such as Zumba and boot camp.
Registered dental hygienist Tania Egher helms Pearly White Smiles, a dental-hygiene clinic where she welcomes patients of all ages for routine teeth cleanings and checkups. After filling out the medical-history form on the computer—the office is completely paperless—patients settle into an upholstered dental chair that’s crafted with different layers of foam density for added comfort. Tania then gets to work on brightening smiles up to eight shades with peroxide gel and an LED light. Children can spend time in the waiting area watching cartoons, playing video games, or calculating how many tears it takes to get a pony for Christmas.
