The Face of Cosmetic Dentistry

For over 30 years, Dr. Debra Gray King has been helping Atlanta smile a little brighter. With her natural artistic abilities and an immense passion for helping others, it’s no surprise that Dr. King found her calling as a cosmetic dentist. In addition to creating highly individualized, beautiful smiles, Dr. King also directs an active philanthropy program benefiting the greater Atlanta area and people around the world. Over the last decade, her practice has donated more than one million dollars to over 60 charities. She has even participated in international charitable trips offering free dental care to underprivileged children.

The Face of Brain and Spine Care

Dr. Said Elshihabi, the face of Legacy Brain and Spine, is a board-certified neurosurgeon with an emphasis in the management of surgical and nonsurgical spinal disorders. He received his medical degree from the University of Texas Health Sciences Center and pursued a neurosurgery residency at the University of Arkansas for Medical Sciences.

Using established procedures along with the latest technology, Dr. Elshihabi promotes an educational approach, treating patients like family to ease the anxiety associated with spinal disease. “I see firsthand the benefit of a coordinated, organized approach in the long-term management of potentially surgical conditions,” he says.

The Face of Bra Fitting

Jenette Goldstein is twice famous—first for her roles in iconic blockbuster films like Aliens and Titanic, and again for her midlife reinvention as the cofounder and CEO of Los Angeles’ Jenette Bras. With her slogan, “The Alphabet Starts at ‘D’” she staked a claim to a market she describes as “overdeveloped and underserved.” Ten years later, with four locations across the Los Angeles area, Jenette Bras is coming to Atlanta. The expansion marks a return to Jenette’s mother’s birthplace and a continuation of her redefinition of what a bra-fitting boutique can be. Providing beautiful options within the sphere of comfort and quality is just the start. “Your bra-fitting should be a delight, not a chore. Women seek connection. So many rites of passage, from prom to pregnancy, are helped along by a good bra and a kind ear. Your breasts need support, but so do you!” Her Atlanta location opens January 2020.

The Face of Event Production

Nazy Gavahi, founder and creative director of NGK Agency, is a visionary and the first call her clients make to bring experiential events to life. If running a full-service marketing and event agency was not enough to keep this event expert busy, she recently launched her second venture, Mod Design by NGK, a modern event rental company.

“The hardest part of planning an Atlanta event was sourcing furniture and decor to speak to the energy of my events. I knew if I wanted it, I had to do it myself, so I did,” explains Gavahi. “I started Mod Design by NGK with the intention of adding a refined, modern aesthetic to events, introducing unique, curated pieces with bold colors, textures, and details that add both functionality and design.”

When it comes to event production, Nazy’s talent for innovation and unmatched creativity allows her to create one-of-a-kind productions for a diverse portfolio of clients ranging from entertainment and automotive brands to hospitality and luxury retail, including the likes of Bentley Atlanta, Shops Buckhead Atlanta, 100 Black Men of Atlanta, and Giuseppe Zanotti, to name a few.
