Simply Amazing Smiles

Dentistry is what we do, but our job is not really about dentistry. Our job is about caring for people and that begins by listening to them. By listening to our clients we get to know them as people, not just as patients. And by knowing more about them we are then better able to offer recommendations that fit their life, budget, schedule, or whatever their needs may be. As dental professionals we interact with many people. One thing we’ve learned over the years is that every person has different needs and wants when it comes to their dental care. Many clients seek us out because they’ve heard about all the amazing smile transformations we do and are ready to make a change. Others simply want to keep their smiles as healthy as can be. We provide a wide range of dental services including advanced dental aesthetics, Botox therapies and facial rejuvenation as well as general dentistry. But without the trust of our clients, we could never realize the level of success we are so fortunate to enjoy today. We’ve known for a long time that to earn someone’s trust you need to listen to him or her sincerely, closely and completely. This will always remain a core philosophy at Simply Amazing Smiles. I’ve enjoyed creating beautiful smiles in Kelowna since 1999. At Simply Amazing Smiles we understand how...

Lakeshore Vein & Aesthetics Clinic

It has only been three years since doctors Mandy Wong and Janna Bentley teamed up to open Lakeshore Vein and Aesthetics Clinic, a medical facility devoted to delivering quality care for the medical and cosmetic treatment of varicose veins and skin problems. But to keep up with growth they have had to hire more nurses and two more doctors, Henry Docherty and Julie Parker. As seen in Progress 2012. Doctors Wong and Bentley have been actively involved in skin care since 1994 and are the only accredited varicose vein laser treatment physicians in Kelowna. Endovenous laser treatment (EVLT) is a no surgery, no scar way to treat varicose veins. Both are on the board of directors for the Canadian Society of Phlebology (science of veins) and this spring the national meeting will be held in Kelowna. They are both looking forward to hosting the conference attendees who come from around the world. “We see a lot of skin cancer in the Okanagan,” says Wong. She and Docherty have a special interest in skin cancer medicine and are in the final steps of completing their masters in skin cancer through the University of Queensland, Australia, to further their knowledge, diagnosis, treatment and prevention of pigmented lesions. The clinic’s expertise in dermatology has led to an invitation from UBC Okanagan to be a part of its medical school. Starting this spring,...

FilmStar Automotive Solutions

Geoff Pill, a native of Norfolk, England, is the owner and operator of FilmStar Automotive Solutions in Kelowna. He opened up shop in 2004 and specializes in applying clear film to help protect your vehicle’s paint surfaces against stone chips, minor scuffing and staining. Durable, these films were first used by the military to protect helicopter blades from the erosive effects of sand. Nowadays, bikes, cars, trucks, motorcycles and RVs use it. Geoff uses a computer-operated machine to cut the clear film for your make, model and year of vehicle. He takes pride in applying the film to curved surfaces and making it as smooth as glass. The self-adhesive urethane film is transparent and nearly invisible. It has a clear-coat layer that protects it from yellowing in the sun. Best of all, the film requires no special care. You can continue to run your vehicle through the automated car wash and wax it. A typical installation takes about a half-day, says Geoff. Areas that can benefit from protective film are front edge of hood, bumper, mirror backs, fender, door handle insets and door edges. There is even protective film for headlight lenses. There are no limits to the areas it can be applied to. Geoff has even done work on snowmobiles and boats. He can also apply window tinting to protect your car’s interior from UV damage by the...
