$75 for Two Exams, Two Cleanings, and One Set of X-rays from Nazila Doroodian, DMD, in Atherton (Up to $551 Value)

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.

$10 for $20 Worth of Burgers at Weezy's Grass Fed Shed in San Rafael

$180 for 20 Units of Botox at Plastic Surgery Institute of San Francisco ($360 Value)

Monday, October 31st, 2011
$180 for 20 Units of Botox at Plastic Surgery Institute of San Francisco ($360 Value)

Facial wrinkles often reveal a person’s age, stress level, or tendency to sleep folded in a dresser drawer. Keep people guessing with today's Groupon: for $180, you get 20 units of Botox at Plastic Surgery Institute of San Francisco (a $360 value).

Garnering laudatory media attention during 40 years of surgical service, Plastic Surgery Institute’s board-certified surgeons and accompanying medical staffers work in tandem to burnish bodily furnishings with advanced cosmetic procedures. During 30-minute Botox treatments, clients kick back in a private treatment room as medicos review health histories and clarify any questions regarding the procedure, results, or how to sneeze without closing your eyes. Injections of Botox’s FDA-approved purified protein solution will then infiltrate unwanted facial crevices, lulling contracting muscles in furrowed eyebrows or etched-in laugh lines into a sweet slumber for up to four months. Within a few days of the treatment, complexions will radiate a smoother, more youthful luminescence than a dolphin dipped in a vat of glow sticks.

Botox may cause serious side effects that can be life threatening, including problems swallowing, speaking, or breathing. Read all safety considerations for Botox here.

Clients may see a loss of several inches of fat from the waist, hips, and thighs, and during each of the treatments, guests can stretch out, relax, listen to music, or crochet lederhosen. Since the procedure is nonsurgical, noninvasive, and requires no anesthesia, there is no recovery time required and patients may return immediately to their daily lives.
