Dr. Larry Compton fixes problematic teeth with his sharp dentistry skills and technology. He uses a special computerized anesthesia system that numbs one tooth at a time, which diminishes excessive numbness and the typical drooling that occurs with other anesthesia methods. A soft-tissue laser helps Dr. Compton remove diseased patches without the need for a scalpel or stitches. When he’s not fixing smiles in the office, Dr. Compton shares his extensive knowledge with others during seminars and long waits at the DMV.

The Bindu owner Kelley Gardner began studying yoga in 1989, and since that time she’s worked with world-renowned scholars of yoga theory such as Paul Muller-Ortega, Douglas Brooks, and Bill Mahony.

Although The Bindu has mats, blocks, straps, and blankets for students to use, individuals can bring their own equipment and should leave any laughing hyenas at home.
