Dr. Lauren Whenry never wants fear of the dentist to come between a patient and his or her smile. With a gentle chairside manner, she educates patients on what to expect before filling cavities, affixing Lumineers veneers, or measuring bites for Invisalign braces. Her special training in sedation dentistry allows her to customize oral sedatives for patients who are especially nervous or preparing for more involved treatments.
A facial may as well be a face full of mud and a massage may as well be a nudge if it's not given by an experienced practitioner. Fortunately, the staff at Synergy Med Spa includes a board-certified physician, skincare professionals certified in lasers and injectables, and veteran massage therapists and aestheticians. This arsenal of professionals speaks louder than the wide swath of services alone, which includes facials, laser hair removal, custom massages, and skin-rejuvenation procedures.
As pleasing to the eye as it is to the body, the spa touts metallic tile flooring, contrasting plush fabrics, and regal chandeliers that inspire regular lights with dreams of upward career mobility. An onsite boutique stocks candles from Seda France and Margot Elena, as well as skincare products including Obagi Medical, Revision, and Glo-Therapeutics?products only found in physician-supervised establishments.
ModSkinNutrition's clinical director, Erin Holder, pours a decade of experience and expertise in nonsurgical aesthetic technology into the creation of custom skin-rejuvenation treatments. A registered nurse and licensed cosmetologist, Holder specializes in the renewal of faces battered by acne and time and gently lures away body hair and body ants from limbs with sugar-based wax. Holder's shelves are stocked with PCA Skin products, which boast a level of effectiveness that inspired her to become an educator on behalf of the company. In addition to spreading her knowledge of skin afflictions to other nurses, physicians, aestheticians, and self-conscious hedgehogs, she empowers her clients by providing them with the epidermal advice they need to continue nourishing their skin long after leaving her care.
Enhance Skin & Body owner Kaye Sanders boasts 32 years of experience as a registered nurse, and has dedicated more than half of those years to treating all manner of skin issues. She draws from her experience and her passion for teaching to lead a staff comprised of registered nurses, aestheticians, and massage therapists. The certified laser specialists wield concentrated beams of light to remove unwanted hair, tighten skin, and reduce the appearance of veins. Other team members administer injection treatments designed to help shed pounds or reduce fine lines and wrinkles with FDA-approved prescriptions.
SkinRenewal dispenses high-quality skincare treatments using the most up-to-date products and technologies under the professional auspices of Dr. David B. Minor and his medical team. Over the course of three applications, both chemical peels—Illuminize and Vitalize—help to reverse aging without forcing time to run backward on a treadmill.
Drs. Chris and Kristie Vinson helm Tulsa Precision Dental, where they welcome patients for general, restorative, and cosmetic dentistry. Using the latest in dental technology and techniques—such as digital x-rays and invisible braces—they work on enhancing smiles. Though they’re equipped to deal with periodontal disease and fix dental problems with such restoration treatments as root canals, implants, and composite fillings, they stress preventive care through annual exams. They also stress the importance of brushing twice a day, noting that it’s especially important at night if you don’t want to scare away the Sandman.
