BLISSful addition to Bradford 0

Miriam King

Innovation, service - and multi-tasking.

That's what Tiffany Rogers is offering at the new Bliss Dental Hygiene & Beauty Salon, located at 152 Holland St. East in Bradford.

Rogers is a Dental Hygienist, and offers a full range of dental hygiene and tooth whitening services, as "Tiffany Dental Cleanings" - but the attractively renovated space also houses a full-service hair salon, with four stylists, and the services of an independent aesthetician.

And accountant Kim Miller, Barrow-Smith Consulting Inc., also has an office in the facility.

"It's a lot of small businesses," laughs Tiffany. "We have a couple of very innovative ideas.... We kind of all pull together."

Bliss offers packages that allow clients to have a mini manicure and pedicure while having their teeth whitened - or a family pack, that lets Mom enjoy salon services while the dental hygienist sees to her child's teeth.

Bliss can also offer packages for wedding parties, that include teeth whitening, manis and pedis, hair styling, even champagne and fancy pastries - although her last party asked for Tim Hortons and timbits.

Women appreciate the opportunity to multi-task, she says. "We have a lot of women who come in to have their teeth whitened, and they have a manicure" - a great use of time. Bliss Dental Hygiene & Beauty Salon also offers a number of daily specials.

The Grand Opening was held on May 31. Mayor Doug White had praise for Rogers, and for the innovative approach to business - especially as part of the revitalization of the downtown. "It's a sign of great things to come."

Mayor White added, "No matter what product or service you need in this Town, you can find it here."

He praised Rogers for having "the confidence and the grit to go out on your own," and create an innovative and quality business addition to Bradford. "I thank you for partnering with us," to improve downtown Bradford, he said.
