If there’s one thing all people everywhere can enthusiastically agree with, even in these divided times, it’s that leaving the house and interacting with other people is terrible. There’s a reason everyone clings to their Netflix and Prime accounts no matter how often they hike the rates: The ability to press a button and have things brought to you without leaving your home or speaking to anyone is magic.
Of course, certain things have been that way for a long time now. You can get your meals delivered with the press of a button, even from restaurants that don’t normally deliver. Groceries have been available via web page for a long time, too. But no matter how great technology gets there are always a few things you have to leave the house for. As of today, however, there’s a little more convenience in your life, if you want it, because of HENRY the Dentist and a few other services that will save you a trip.
Going to the Dentist is a pain (often literally, ha ha we here at HoLi are hilarious). Aside from the discomfort and terrifyingly torture-like nature of the tools (seriously, it’s the 21st century and the dentist is still pulling out metal claw-like things to stick in your mouth), there’s the simple inconvenience of having to take time off from work or from your family in order to get a cleaning or checkup.
That might explain why the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) estimates that more than a third of Americans haven’t been to the Dentist in more than a year—and most of those people list inconvenience as their number-one reason. Not going to the dentist can have some serious negative impacts on your dental and overall health, so solving this disconnect is pretty important. And thankfully, as of today companies in Hoboken can book a visit from HENRY the Dentist, a state-of-the-art mobile dental clinic that comes to corporate offices. HR departments schedule a visit from HENRY, the mobile dental office pulls up, and employees can take advantage of quality dental care without missing any work.
This isn’t some off-brand dentist in a truck, either—this is an inviting, comfortable, state-of-the-art office that comes to you. “We know many people feel intimidated about going to the dentist, so we spent over a year with our team designing a clinic that’s modern and welcoming,” said Justin Joffe, Founder and CEO of HENRY. “We’ve been thoughtful about every element of the patient experience, to provide an atmosphere that is unexpected from the moment you walk in.” That includes offering HBO and Netflix on the TVs, massage dental chairs, and a full range of services including x-rays, exams, cleanings, fillings, night guard, and teeth whitening,. HENRY is in-network with most major dental carriers, including Delta Dental, Metlife, Guardian, Aetna, Cigna, United, and Horizon.
Into everyone’s life there comes an unexpected event. Sometimes it’s a positive, and you find yourself invited to a swanky event, or maybe getting married to a soul mate you met last week, or about to have your Moment on social media. Whatever it is, sometimes you need to get glammed up, and quick. You simply don’t have time to make an appointment and do the beauty shop like a civilized person. In those moments, Glam Squad is your answer in Hoboken—they’ll bring the salon to you.
All you do is download their App, go to the website, calling 844-695-4526 or email [email protected] and book an appointment. The Glam Squad shows up between 90 minutes and 2 hours later, depending on where you are and how busy they are. There’s a consultation to begin the appointment, and then they get to work. It’s best if you prepare for the visit by washing your hair or removing makeup, depending on what you’re having done. For an idea of how much this kind of glamorous service costs, you can check out their services menu.
Finally, you don’t have to plan ahead in order to look fabulous. Just get the Glam Squad on your case.
Of course, once you’ve had your teeth cleaned and your hair did, you’re probably going to celebrate being so together and awesome, which means you probably wake up the next day in need of more Glam Squad—and probably the services of IV Revolution, which moves around Hoboken. You can make an appointment for Oxygen Therapy, booster shots of vitamins or vaccinations like the flu shot, IV solutions for hangovers, athletic recovery, or anti-aging (or a custom solution), or you can find their mobile medical spa by following their Twitter feed.
A lot of people swear by the IV solution for hangover recovery, which means Hoboken must be IV Revolution’s ideal market. The company is owned by a board-certified doctor and all therapies are administered and monitored by licensed medical professionals. If you’ve ever given blood you know how painless and easy it is to get an IV, and most treatments only take 15-30 minutes, making it ideal for a before-work prep or lunchtime pick-me-up, and you don’t even have to travel to get there.
Hangover cures that come to you? The only thing better would be that hangover-free alcohol scientists keep teasing us with.
So there you have it, Hobokenites—increasingly you don’t need to leave the house for anything, and today just added a few more things that will come to you. Any other services we missed? Let us know!
