Leading the Change in Health & Wellness
Meet exceptional providers of dentistry and skin care.
This year is one of the best to resolve to keep a healthy mouth and healthy body. Dr. John Bocchi, Sierra Smiles owner and dentist, understands the uncertainty 2020 created, resulting in a distancing between patients and their routine dental wellness appointments.
“Preventive care is extremely important,” Dr. Bocchi explains. “It can be much less expensive and less painful than waiting for problems to surface. With COVID-19 and social distancing measures in place, many people didn’t take the time to see the dentist. Now you need to make a New Year’s resolution to put yourself first and take care of your health.”
Sierra Smiles offers the Smile Advantage Dental Savings program, designed to offset the cost of dental care.
“We have three different packages where people can be seen, treated, and on their way for less than it costs for their monthly video streaming service,” Bocchi adds.
Minimize your risk of cancer, diabetes, rheumatoid arthritis, heart disease, stroke, and more with dental wellness appointments. Two to four times per year, visit the professionals at Sierra Smiles Complete Health Dentistry Practices in Reno or Lake Tahoe. For more than 15 years, Dr. Bocchi and his team of dental health professionals have provided the highest quality care using state-of-the-art technology and techniques with a non-invasive, preventive care approach.

Skin Cancer & Dermatology Institute
Inside nine facilities throughout the region, medical professionals at Skin Cancer & Dermatology Institute offer best-in-class dermatological care. The continuity of care is truly unique, assisting with everything from Mohs micrographic surgery for skin cancer and medical dermatology to dermatopathology and cosmetic dermatology procedures, including skin tightening, hair removal, and injectables such as BOTOX® COSMETIC and JUVÉDERM®.
“Our team of board-certified dermatologists and highly trained staff takes care of all of your skin issues and skin care needs,” says Dr. Whitney Hovenic, medical director of cosmetic dermatology. “Often, our patients transition from medical to cosmetic dermatology as many of the problems we treat medically may also be helped by our state-of-the art lasers and other skin care treatments.”
After spending time outdoors in the summer and fall months, now is the time to take advantage of a post-season skin rejuvenation boost. At Skin Cancer & Dermatology Institute, patients receive individualized consultations, during which their specific needs are addressed. Flexible treatment plans include the use of several laser treatments, such as the Fraxel® DUAL, Sciton® JOULE™, Vbeam Prima, and Clear + Brilliant systems, and other non-laser treatments, including SkinPen® microneedling and DiamondGlow® facials.
Customized treatment plans result in brightened, refreshed skin.
“We are able to make such a difference in the health and appearance of skin,” Hovenic says. “In the process, the treatments also help with acne scarring.”
Once any skin ailment is controlled from a medical perspective, the scars can be an unpleasant reminder of the past.
“They can be really disfiguring and have a big impact on self-esteem,” Hovenic adds. “People think they have to live with them, and we have many modalities that can help.”
Licensed aesthetician Katrina Winter offers a program called Face Reality for patients who have hard-to-control acne, combining in-office treatments with a skin care line tailored to the individual.
“People enter our office with any number of skin issues, and we have the professionals, equipment, and skin care to help,” Hovenic notes. “Remember to keep your skin health in mind and find the time to take care of yourself.”
The entire team of skin care experts at Skin Cancer & Dermatology Institute truly cares about empowering patients to love their skin, as well as treating skin cancer and other skin conditions. Your skin deserves the highest level of care, from acne to skin cancer treatments and fillers to facials.
