Goel Family Dentistry cleans mouths and brightens teeth with an array of general and cosmetic dental services. After a consultation to determine the patient's current needs, Dr. Goel and his team harness the chomper-illuminating brawn of Venus White Max. With happy teeth-owners comfortably reclined, the whitening wizards bring the product to ivory-light life through careful mixing before applying it to break up stains and discoloration, quickly fizzling the bonds they've formed with denticles. Venus White Max works its magic over four 15-minute periods with 38% hydrogen peroxide and passionate potassium nitrate, which helps cancel out sensitivity often linked to bleaching. Through continued correct oral hygiene hijinks such as hosting in-mouth floss tightrope contests and post-whitening touchups, patients may continue to reap the benefits of whitening for years after the treatment.

Drs. Juan and Dorothy Kassab specialize in cosmetic dentistry as well as orthodontics, routine care, and more. Invisalign straightens crooked chompers with a combination of 3-D computer graphics and the spells of old-fashioned orthodontia. The Invisalign process eschews cumbersome braces for clear, removable aligners that are virtually invisible to the unclothed eye. An initial 30-minute exam, including x-rays and mouth-terrain photos, paves the way for calibrated teeth sheaths. Depending on the client’s teeth, as few as 12 or as many as 48 separate aligners will need to be worn during a period of six to 15 months before the straightening effect finally self-actuates in a sudden burst of pink smoke and slobber. Aligners are only removed when eating, brushing, flossing, or modeling a finely clenched jaw. Exam rooms at Smile Solutions are equipped with TVs for a fully comfortable toothsperience.

When it comes to alternative medicine and metaphysical healing, Reverend Michael Phoenix Heart does it all. He's a certified herbalist, reiki master, psychic medium, shaman, and spiritual counselor—just to name a few. He unleashes this impressive grab bag of skills at The Eternal Temple, a serene space dedicated to promoting peace, compassion, culture, and human understanding. Here clients attempt to reconnect with passed loved ones during psychic readings, to achieve mind-body balance during reiki treatments, and to recount their soul's long, strange journey during past-life regression sessions. Visitors can also check out the temple's shop, which is stocked with incense, tinctures, and healing stones that help transform any home, office, or solitary confinement cell into a personal sanctuary.
