When Roald Dahl wrote Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, he imagined a much-coveted golden ticket that granted access to myriad wonders and unveiled the inner workings of an entire industry. MetaBody created a real-life version of that ticket with the MetaBody Yoga & Fitness Pass, though it applies to fitness instead of candy. The pass grants access not to a single gym but to classes at a variety of local studios, specializing in everything from yoga to boot camp. With the freedom to move from location to location, students can sample different regimens, instructors, and styles of exercise to cobble together a program that fits their needs and goals. MetaBody's nutritionists supplement class packages by coaching clients in healthy eating, recipe cooking, and speed-reading nutrition-fact labels.
Drawing from more than 10 years of dental experience, Dr. Alvaro Lazo emphasizes gentle dentistry aided by advanced technology. Before performing dental services such as root canals, extractions, or cleaning, technicians reveal inner-mouth workings with digital radiography, which reduces the radiation exposure of traditional radiographs by up to 90%. Laser cavity detection and treatment seek out and stop tooth decay without the use of drills that can inadvertently tap into a tooth's precious oil reserves.
Invisalign straightens crooked chompers with a combination of highly advanced, 3-D computer graphics and the spells of old-fashioned orthodontia. The Invisalign process eschews cumbersome braces for clear, removable aligners that are virtually invisible to the unclothed eye. A full exam, including x-rays and photos of your mouth terrain, paves the way for a flurry of calibrated teeth sheaths that are designed to slowly shift walnut crackers into perfect alignment. The total cost of an Invisalign treatment varies for each customer (it can run anywhere from $3,500 to $8,000); this Groupon gets you $1,000 toward that final cost. View some Invisalign FAQs here.
Dr. Parker, a fellow of the World Congress of Microdentistry with more than 30 years of experience, grants confidence to smiles with a Sapphire whitening treatment designed to lighten fangs up to 10 shades over the course of one office visit. During the procedure, which lasts up to 90 minutes, a seasoned technician lacquers choppers with a peroxide-based Sapphire gel that gently melts away stains caused by coffee, tobacco use, and permanent-marker-chewing habits. If necessary, they'll shine the beams of a Sapphire light on slathered tusks to enhance the gel's whitening power. This gentle procedure, unlike incisor tanning beds, does not rely on any harmful UV rays, yielding results that may last for up to a few years when followed up with proper oral care.
