Look special, feel special: Dental Design Studio

Feel and look your best on your special day. Beautiful smiles aren’t just about veneers and Hollywood smiles…sometimes simple things, like whitening, re-contouring, bonding, etc., can make a world of difference. A truly experienced practitioner can provide many options to help you improve your smile! Remember that your smile is one of the first things others notice about you. You never have a second chance to make a first impression!

Remain calm and carry on: Gracie’s Luncheonette

Gracie’s Luncheonette’s best event advice: Don’t stress— plan ahead! We stay with you throughout the entire process, making sure that you have everything you need and answer your questions. We try to make the process as easy as possible by offering a selection of pre-set catering packages, as well as being flexible for your customization. For on-site catering, our large dining rooms are perfect for bridal and baby showers, birthday bashes, wedding rehearsal dinners, small weddings, and other celebratory events. Our off-site catered events range from food truck service to full-service buffet to family-style service with all items scratch-made in-house. We also offer special order cakes, pies, donuts, and other desserts from our in-house bakery! We love teaming with local event planners, including A Charmed Affair, our partner in creating the super trendy Donut Wall (A Charmed Affair supplies the wall, we supply the yeast- and cake-made donuts from our extensive donut menu) — yes, even for weddings.

Put your best smile forward: Dr. Michael Koumas

Weddings are unarguably one of the most memorable life events. It’s also a time you want to look your best in person, as well as in photos. I believe that a healthy mouth is a cornerstone of a healthy body and a healthy life. I work with each of my patients to determine what services are best for them. In cosmetic work, not everyone needs veneers or elaborate dental work. I will inform you of the honest pros and cons of a variety of treatments so that together, we can decide what works best for you. Before your wedding, let us help you create one of your most treasured memories and put your best smile forward.
