Dr. Honea harnesses the power of the Zoom2 whitening system to break up stains, banish yellowing, and brighten teeth up to five shades. During the 90-minute session, Dr. Honea bathes clients’ bicuspids in a peroxide gel before switching on an advanced ultraviolet lamp that activates the solution, releasing oxygen and tiny Speedo-wearing strongmen to break the bonds of the stains. Zoom2’s gel formula also contains calcium phosphate to help reduce tooth sensitivity and boost the treatment’s lustrous effects. During the process, patients may get cozy in the cushy dentist's chair, listen to music, or daydream about stunning debate-team archrivals speechless with only a toothy smile.

Brad Pugh has followed a healthy diet and exercise plan his whole life—until a few years ago, that is. Frustrated by the time and energy commitment, he decided to take a break from working out, which led to three years of inactivity and 30 extra pounds. As he huffed and puffed his way back to fitness, he resolved to use this experience as an opportunity to help others get back into shape. In 2000, Brad founded Shaping U Personal Fitness, a gym specializes in small-group exercise programs.
A nationally certified personal trainer, Brad earned local renown when he was named the city’s runner-up personal trainer by Birmingham Magazine. Six days a week, he runs indoor and outdoor boot-camp classes as well as personal-training sessions available on a one-on-one or semiprivate basis. Brad helps his clients modify unhealthy eating habits as well by designing meals based on the 14-day detox plan. Healthy meals centering around lean cuts of meat and high-nutrient vegetables are prepared by a chef and delivered to the home.

What began as Anita Gibson's struggling, two-person family business has evolved into Advanced Weight Loss Clinics, an organization with 17 corporately owned clinics and 3 franchise locations spread throughout the southeastern United States. Each center's team of doctors and weight-loss specialists encourages clients to win a similarly daunting battle by creating personalized plans for success. The program incorporates vitamins, supplements, and appetite suppressants with a low-calorie, low-fat meal plan that discourages using soft-serve ice cream as toothpaste.
