Stepping into Tower Dentistry is like stepping into the house of a neighbor?a neighbor who?s really into the Middle Ages. One of the sunny, yellow walls in the reception area gives way to the stone exterior of a castle, where children climb through a kid-size archway to enter their own play space. Overhead, a flat-screen TV entertains parents as they shift focus between the screen and their progeny, sipping coffee or juice on the plush cushions of the sofa. Nearby, a vibrant blue-and-orange flower painting crowns the fireplace, complementing the blue backlighting of the rotunda-like ceiling and the dark-wood cabinets.
If you can bring yourself to leave the cozy comfort of the foyer, you'll find that the rest of the office is just as calming. Satellite TV or music await in treatment rooms, where dentists Adam Raschke, Paul Pierce, Paul Velton, and Frank Duran would love to hear the nicknames you've chosen for each of the fish in their 1,000-gallon aquarium. The caring team maintains its patient-centered philosophy with timesaving, state-of-the-art dental technology. They use a CEREC software system to design and fabricate ceramic restorations in about an hour, and offer mini dental implants that stabilize ill-fitting dentures in a single visit.

At Advanced Vision Care Optometry, Dr. Odish presides over a wide range of high-tech eye-assessing equipment. Digital retinal screening and computerized visual-acuity testing gives the doctor detailed views of ocular goings-on, allowing him to diagnose disease, prescribe lenses, or recommend a good pair of mustachioed disguise glasses.
Helmed by an award-winning performer and experienced instructor, Sabrina Bellydancer imparts bountiful body waves and seductive shimmitude to movers of all skill levels. Whether you wish to burn calories, tastefully flutter a tummy flag tattoo, or sensually dodge paintballs, the weekly beginner classes work to tame lower halves Monday through Wednesday. Aspirant belly-dance junkies can get their fix learning classic movements such as hip circles, figure eights, undulations, and shimmies. On Monday evenings, mixed-level classes combine levels one, two, and three for instruction that tailors its intensity to each participant’s appropriate skill level and favorite meteorologist. Non-noisy hip scarves are permitted, and dancers can feel free to don dance shoes or proudly brandish naked feet.

When Dr. Barry Katzman opened West Coast Eye Care & Med Spa, he envisioned the space as a small practice that would help locals better enjoy the city’s famous sunsets and beaches. With his expertise—he’s participated in hundreds of studies for advanced treatments—the business quickly took on enough customers to sustain seven offices, a staff of a dozen doctors, and its own language, which outsiders describe as Latin spoken in pig Latin. After outfitting eyes with prescriptions and preventive care, staffers can help them navigate an optical boutique stocked with more than 10,000 designer frames by Dior, Bvlgari, and Tom Ford. Regular performances of more advanced surgeries, such as LASIK, cataract laser procedures, and eyelid lifts, made the staff intrigued about similar aesthetic procedures. As a result, they opened a med spa, where they tighten and brighten skin with injections, rejuvenating laser treatments, and even plastic surgery.
