Dr. Burns and Dr. Jenkins have DDS degrees from the Temple University Kornberg School of Dentistry and the Indiana University School of Dentistry, respectively, and they put that professional training to use at Platinum Dental Care. The doctors work tirelessly to keep up with changes in dental medicine, adopting new techniques and technologies—such as implants—as they develop. While both practitioners promote oral health with a variety of cosmetic and rehabilitative dental procedures including teeth whitening, veneers, and fillings, Dr. Burns focuses on saving teeth through full-mouth rehabilitation and by depositing extra teeth into a piggy bank. Dr. Burns also has a degree in psychology, which helps him empathize with patients and mitigate their concern over dental care.
Gold’s Gym lures fitness seekers from all walks of life with cardio decks, strength-training equipment, and aerobics rooms filled with energizing classes. Instead of reciting Shakespearean monologues as they jog and pedal, guests can watch movies in a cardio theater lined with treadmills, bikes, and an oversize projection screen. Free weights encourage biceps to bulge, and resistance machines tone arms, abs, and legs. Sports lovers dribble basketballs and volley racquetballs on shiny courts (available at most locations), raising their heart rates as they hone hand-eye coordination. Like the nightly news, Zumba classes take an hour and set Latin-inspired dance moves that vaporize calories to vibrant world music, along with a slew of available selections, including cardio and spin classes. Consult each location’s webpage for a class schedule and a list of additional amenities, which range from childcare to personal training (not included in today’s Groupon).
The founders of Direct White and Brighter Image teamed up more than 10 years ago to form a three-step, at-home teeth-whitening system. Inside their storefronts, skilled techs outfit clients with custom-fit bleaching trays. At the worldwide lab, similarly skilled techs craft custom-fit bleaching trays from at-home impression kits. The trays' snug tooth caps are trimmed along the gum line, which helps to prevent burning of gums and can provide a more consistent whitening than bulkier trays. Bleaching-gel pens supplement each kit, providing easy touchups that break down stains left behind by wine, tobacco, and gnawing on coffee mugs.
American Fork Dental Center’s Dr. Rosvall brings mouths back from the brink of the dark side with smile-saving whitening procedures. At the beginning of each session, Dr. Rosvall consults with each patient, discussing the procedure’s parameters, expected whitening results, and the Tooth Fairy’s current exchange rates. Tarnished teeth bathe in a bleaching substance calibrated to break up stains, fade discoloration, and jolt amnesiac teeth back to their pearly old selves. Patients relax throughout the bicuspid-brightening process, plotting their new smile’s debut from the cushiony arms of the office’s exam chairs. After the procedure, Dr. Rosvall sends glowing grins home with a set of bleaching trays and gel that aid in future touch-ups and give an air of authenticity to basement replicas of a dentist’s office.
Fox Hollow Golf Club's narrow, scenic terrain challenges athletes with holes that reward precision over distance. Climb aboard the included golf cart and traverse Fox Hollow's 7,077-yard, par 72 course, littered with orb-hungry mature trees, methodically placed bunkers, and water hazards shaped to resemble cinema's most famous rain puddles. Each hole attempts to distract golfers' pinpoint shots with awe-inducing views of the Wasatch Mountains, and punishes those who overplay their long drive by swallowing their ball in the expansive roughs. Though not included with today's Groupon, customers can practice their putts and celebratory bogey boogies in Fox Hollow's lighted practice areas before swinging for the greens.
