Dr. Azad and Associates, strive to accommodate families at Familia Dental, with time slots for working parents on evenings and Saturdays and an indoor play area for youngsters at this preventive and cosmetic practice. Its orthodontics, whitening services, and traditional dentistry finesse the smiles of both kids and adults using technology such as a digital x-ray machine, which releases 80% less radiation than its analog counterparts and 90% less radiation than Spiderman’s big toe.
Husband-and-wife dental duo Drs. Joo and Min Kwon lead a team of dental professionals spanning three offices: Smile Dental Design, Westlake Dental Center, and Ashley Family Dental. The dentists tackle all facets of tooth care, from installing implants and walrus tusks to straightening teeth and brightening smiles. They even work outside mouth lines to inject Botox and Juvederm wrinkle fighters into faces.
Each office values patient safety and comfort, and is equipped with some of the industry’s most up-to-date equipment, such as laser cavity detection, low-radiation digital x-rays, and high-speed electric hand pieces that reduce the noise of traditional hand pieces by 40%. A sterilization system surpasses OSHA standards for uncompromisingly clean tools, and distilled water ensures mouths stay free of contaminants and fish.
Licensed staff members at Aristo Dental target fine lines and wrinkles with muscle-relaxing Botox injections. With each tiny injection, the Botox concoction works to curtail movement in furrow-prone muscles to smooth crinkling eye areas, foreheads, and nasal lines better than rolling down the windows in a launching space shuttle. Results usually begin to take hold within one to two hours after treatment and achieve full effects within 30 days, leaving faces smoother and more youthful for up to four months. As the treatment requires no downtime, patients can return to working, socializing, and taunting shar pei puppies the same day.
Holistic foot-healer Dr. Anthony Spitz targets toenail fungus with short, high-intensity blasts from the Q-Clear laser. Since there's no downtime after the short procedure, patients can cartwheel straight out the door and go back to their normal activities. Yellowed, brittle toe shields will be replaced by clear nails over the next six to nine months, giving feet the confidence to bare all in a pair of flip-flops or fuzzy glass slippers.
Helmed by Dr. William Pollack—a licensed chiropractor with more than 35 years of experience—Pollack Clinic soothes sore backs with therapeutic massages, trigger-point therapy, and spinal adjustments. At each massage appointment, one of four skilled practitioners, each with knowledge of a variety of techniques and decades of experience, unravels muscular knots with the precision of an archer and the nimbleness of a Twister champion. Using a customized blend of kneading techniques, the clinic tailors the massage to the client’s specific ailments, from arthritis, headaches, and fibromyalgia to chronic pain and accident recovery. Each stroke promotes healing and relaxation by releasing tension from the joints and facilitating blood flow in the muscle tissue. The clinic also fights stress with its flexible schedule, which includes evening and weekend availability.
Dr. Pollack's interest in chiropractic care comes from a personal source. When he was in high school, an accidental dive off a wrestling mat resulted in a severe knee injury. An orthopedic surgeon told him his shredded cartilage would have to be removed, which meant a six-month recovery. Dr. Pollack's father, a dairy farmer, needed his son's help on the farm, so they decided to consult a chiropractor before putting his ailing joint under the knife. After an examination, the chiropractor determined that Dr. Pollack had actually twisted his knee, dislodging a bone in the process. One adjustment erased the pain, and he never had surgery. More than three decades later, he still draws upon his youthful introduction to chiropractic care when he and his staff practitioners unravel muscular knots and straighten spines with techniques such as therapeutic massages, trigger-point therapy, and spinal adjustments.
