Backed by a degree from Temple University, School of Dentistry and a caring, listening ear, Dr. Sheyda Zahiri keeps smiles gleaming with regular checkups, endodontic interventions, and cosmetic dentistry. Dr. Zahiri relies on her kind chairside manner as she explains her procedures in detail, answers any questions, and demonstrates how to make friendship bracelets out of dental floss. Her patient list includes kids and seniors alike, as she is equally adept at painting on sealants as she is at helping older adults make the switch to dentures.
Sometimes, the human body just needs a little bit of hands-on help to ensure it's operating at full capacity. This is a core concept for chiropractors, including Dr. Paul Woolf, who has spent 25 years helping more than 10,000 patients live healthier, pain-free lives. When the spine falls out of alignment—even slightly—the central nervous system can interfere with the body's ability to function and naturally heal itself. Through chiropractic care, Dr. Woolf both locates and then corrects these sources of interference, effectively addressing the symptoms as well as their underlying causes. Over time, these manual adjustments can help alleviate the lingering aches caused by sports injuries, automobile accidents, or overenthusiastic waving from a parade float. Additionally, Dr. Woolf sets patients on the path to improved wellbeing by complementing his treatments with lifestyle counseling, nutritional guidance, and massage therapy.
One wasn't enough for Radiant Complexions Dermatology Clinics—its team of doctors and nurse practitioners have established 11 offices across Iowa and Arizona in the past decade. At each location, dermatology specialists preserve the health and unique character of all skin types with medical and cosmetic treatments. They can resolve all types of skin problems, and tend to strictly aesthetic concerns from the outside in with chemical peels, microdermabrasion, and dermal fillers. Offices are equipped with advanced StarLux fractional lasers, which firm the skin by stimulating collagen production at the dermal layer, and VelaShape machines that use radio and light energies to reduce the appearance of cellulite and sagging skin. A scientifically formulated line of skincare products allow for at-home care with glycolic acid, retinol, and Vitamin C.
Arrowhead Dermatology wrangles a team of board-certified dermatologists, nurse practitioners, and aestheticians—many of whom have worked in harrowing environments, such as burn wards, the air force, and Texas. Their services tend to fall into two categories: treatments that promote healthy skin and treatments with a more cosmetic slant. For the former, Arrowhead's dermatologists perform mole monitoring for skin cancers, offer treatment for warts, rashes, and cysts, and put together plans that help patients reduce acne outbreaks. On the cosmetic side, they'll team up with their aestheticians to perform laser hair removal, microdermabrasion treatments, and vestigial rhino-horn buffing.
A 6,641-yard layout sculpted into pond-speckled parkland terrain draws in golfers at Villa de Paz Golf Club's 18-hole course. Throughout the round, golfers will have to prove that their swing is impervious to water hazards, which come into play on 10 holes. Players and husky groundhogs encounter the most difficult hole at the fourth tee box, where a tree-lined fairway dog-legs sharply to the right on its way to a green guarded by a pond in front. Before their round, clubbers can warm up their swings at Villa de Paz's driving range, which has two tiers to accommodate heavy swing-honing traffic and separate territorial head covers.
Course at a Glance:
Eighty-four hitting stations spread out over two decks. Ten target greens, each one mapped out so players know the precise distance to each flag. Eight hitting bays equipped with TrackTee technology that charts the spin rate and distance of each shot. These are the practice resources that help golfers hone their swing—and learn more about their game—at Valley Golf Center. Named one of 2013's top 50 standalone facilities in America by the Golf Range Association of America, the practice facility also encompasses a 5,000-square-foot putting green and a practice bunker for players to hone their touch around the green. From 9 a.m. to 10 p.m., seven days a week, fans, misters, lights, and shade protect players against the elements of heat or the darkness of night. The center also hosts PGA lessons and a fitting center.
