Goel Family Dentistry cleans mouths and brightens teeth with an array of general and cosmetic dental services. After a consultation to determine the patient's current needs, Dr. Goel and his team harness the chomper-illuminating brawn of Venus White Max. With happy teeth-owners comfortably reclined, the whitening wizards bring the product to ivory-light life through careful mixing before applying it to break up stains and discoloration, quickly fizzling the bonds they've formed with denticles. Venus White Max works its magic over four 15-minute periods with 38% hydrogen peroxide and passionate potassium nitrate, which helps cancel out sensitivity often linked to bleaching. Through continued correct oral hygiene hijinks such as hosting in-mouth floss tightrope contests and post-whitening touchups, patients may continue to reap the benefits of whitening for years after the treatment.

Certified instructors lead benders of all experience levels through an array of human pretzel-baking techniques such as gentle yoga, power yoga and pregnancy yoga sessions, with special emphasis in Svaroopa yoga.

To allow for deeper bodily transformation and adequate naptime, each class at Cortland Yoga Center runs 1.5-hours long.
Doctor of Chiropractic Ellis Smith believes that everyone can benefit from chiropractic care?he even extends his services to children, as some treatments may reduce the severity of allergies, asthma, and ADD. He realigns the spines of adult patients with adjustments or refers them to on-staff massage therapist Ayla Fialko,?who gently works out muscular kinks. Fialko also provides body waxing out of Kamala Therapeutic Services, enabling patients to look as smooth on the outside as they feel on the inside after a treatment.

For even more self-defense?minded lessons, Kelley and company also schedule Boxing, Kickboxing, and Brazilian Jujitsu classes.

Helmed by lifelong Cortland residents Stephen and Patricia Jordan, Shipwreck Golf Amusement Center regales fun-seeking guests of all abilities with three engaging attractions. The 18-hole, indoor black light mini-golf course takes putt-putters on a pilgrimage through a 450-foot labyrinth of smooth faux-greens framed by phosphorescent murals depicting underwater ruins and neon incarnations of each golfer’s embarrassing yearbook photos. Playful music is complemented by emerald corridors that snake through a pirate-themed pastiche of misting waterfalls, wooden ships, and lush palm trees. The scampering feet of kids age 2–10 can bounce, bound, and barrel roll across the cushy floor of the bounce houses that populate Shipwreck’s play area, which also includes a dress-up area, two play houses, and a play office where kids can jubilantly file tax forms.
