Dr. Leana B. Thanos](http://gr.pn/MmhOxd), DMD, who’s been practicing in South Florida since 1986, creates beautiful smiles with a variety of general, surgical, and cosmetic dentistry services. She straightens smiles with the clear aligners of Invisalign, treats gum disease, and replaces missing teeth with dental implants and dentures, instead of wind-up chatter teeth. She is an expert at using neuromuscular methods to treat TMJ problems, including neck aches, headaches, and difficulty chewing.
The dentists and staff at Sierra Dental mollify mouths with a plethora of tooth-sprucing services administered in brightly colored, relaxing offices. During the exam, a mouth expert will investigate enamel for signs of disease and decay, pausing only to interview suspicious-looking molars. Teeth whitening aims to banish surface stains using a gel applied directly to teeth and activated with a specialized light. X-rays let dentists' peepers plumb oral façades in search of issues, and a cleaning expels debris built up from years of brushing teeth with debris.
Animal care is a family affair at Hometown Animal Hospital. Dr. Jan Bellows, a Florida Veterinary Medical Association Gold Star–recipient with more than 35 years experience, leads a team of practitioners and assistants which includes his son, Dr. David Bellows. Together, they keep their four-legged patients healthy through annual checkups and wellness exams, and help them recover from illness or injury through medicinal and surgical treatments. Their expertise is not just limited to dogs and cats, however, as they also aid exotic pets including hedgehogs, mice, chinchillas, and snakes.
Their services also go beyond veterinarian treatments at their bed-and-breakfast-style boarding facility. Here, staff members pamper each furry guest during overnight stays with personalized care—feeding them their favorite food, scratching their favorite spots, and letting them stay up past their bedtime, just this once.
Teeth are in the Cherry family’s blood, which explains why they never get bitten by vampires. It also explains why Dr. Robert followed in his father’s footsteps by graduating from Temple University's dental school. As a child, Robert spent countless hours learning from his dad at the family practice, which operated from inside the Cherry's Pennsylvania home. Now, with more than 40 years of professional practice tied to his own name, Dr. Robert tackles tooth issues alongside Dr. Thomas Leonard, a man with a comparable passion for the craft. Together, the cavity-combatting duo joins forces to offer a variety of services, including emergency care, inside a state-of-the-art facility stocked with modern technology—a far cry from the humble Cherry family home, and an even further cry from the DIY dental tips slipped inside every pack of baseball cards during that era.
