An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure, much to the chagrin of brokers who invested heavily in cure. Get in while prevention’s still hot with today’s Groupon: for $75, you get a dental-care package valid across multiple visits at Nazila Doroodian, DMD, in Atherton (up to a $551 total value). The package includes:
- Two exams (an $87 value each)
- Two cleanings (a $110 value each)
- One set of x-rays (up to a $157 value)
Dr. Nazila Doroodian and her team of dental hygienists pamper grins with modern technology and spa-like amenities designed to keep clients comfortable and relaxed. Guests slip their hands into paraffin gloves as their backs undulate to the beat of a massage mat’s rolling strokes. During the exam and cleaning, hygienists maneuver intraoral cameras to discover decay and lost lottery tickets before gently sweeping away debris and snapping a few low-radiation digital x-rays.
To sustain serenity, the dental team covers clients’ peepers with warm or cold masks, drapes lavender-scented wraps over shoulders, and stimulates brains with DVDs or music piped through personal headsets. Clients also gear up for appointments or triathlons with free refreshments in a waiting area flush with creamy blooms, where all are welcome to conclude their stay with complimentary headshots.
