As they enter the training circle at Curves, female guests come face-to-face with the smiles of other women. And just as points on a circle share a common distance from the circle's center, workout participants share the experiences of those nearby, trading stations throughout the 30-minute training session. One minute is spent on a piece of strength-training equipment built for feminine frames and designed to work two opposing muscle groups with a single movement. Exercisers then move on to a recovery station, where they run, jog, or dance to maintain heart rates and keep platforms in place during momentary losses of gravity.
Doctors Michael Narodovich, Jim Robinson, and Binh Dao treat patients with standard dental services, such as dental implants, Zoom! whitening, and Invisalign braces, as well as services that go beyond general dentistry, such as treatments for sleep apnea and TMJ, a joint disorder. To keep their offices clean, the staff uses a modern sterilization system that exceeds OSHA requirements. Additionally, they forgo tap water for distilled bottled water to eliminate outside contamination from city-water-plant machines or supervillains who dump mind-control serum in the pipes.
At Pebble Beach Dental, doctors Michael Atherly and Gary Newhouse perform dental services with the latest technology, such as digital imaging and x-rays.

Invisalign elite provider Mark Holt corrects aberrant chompers in a vibrant, sports-themed mouthetorium. After traversing the hardwood basketball-like lobby, you'll be given the opportunity to meet the tooth-turning team who will review your dental and medical records and quiz you on Proust trivia. A complete initial exam, including an oral excavation, x-rays (a $177 value), and impressions (a $123 value), uncovers the mystery of which treatment options will best meet your mouth's needs. After discussing your options, you and the doctor can hash out a customized treatment plan, pontificate all financial information, discuss insurance options and payment proposals, and crochet each other's pillows. Groupon-holders also receive $1,200 off the final cost of the full braces or Invisalign treatment if those are determined the best remedies for your orthodontic ailments. The cost of the treatments starts at $4,680.
Through their "Smile Design" treatment plan, doctors Kahbody and Khodai help patients map out a path to the perfect set of teeth. They take into consideration a number of factors?such as personality, facial structure, and mouth condition?before devising a scheme that may incorporate both cosmetic and reconstructive procedures. They may cover ragged chompers with porcelain veneers, expunge discoloration with Zoom! whitening treatments, or replace missing teeth or ill-advised Chicklet surrogates with dental implants. In addition to mouth makeovers, the doctors can also perform laser-based dental procedures to treat gum disease or reshape uneven gum tissue to further enhance smiles. And to make squeamish patients more comfortable through any one of these procedures, they offer sedation dentistry. With that, guests remain conscious, but enjoy a sense of relaxation during visits to help them cope with sensitive teeth or fear of needles.
