There is a certain stigma that comes with lice, an embarrassment to ask about them or know how to treat them. A local business wants to fight that.

The Lice Place is the only certified professional lice treatment clinic in the country corporately owned and operated by a Registered Nurse. They work hard to treat and consult, and most of all educate parents, and people about head lice.

There are so many- false- facts out there. It is nice for parents to have an expert in the neighborhood to go to. Anyone can get lice. It is in fact the second most common condition after the common cold caught by children. Some 12 million kids a year come home with lice,and it has nothing to do with dirt and all about proximity. As for the Lice Place, it is located at 8115 Isabella Lane, Suite 6 in Brentwood.
