The skilled molar maintainers at Every Kid's Dentist keep children's mouth mountains free of cavities and crevasses with youth-friendly services. Bolster young one's budding bicuspids with an oral exam and cleaning, to give the old heave-ho to any tartar and plaque buildup, effectively clearing the way for optimum black-light reflection. The intensive pearly white inspection continues with a set of x-rays with bitewings, a film holder with a fin that simultaneously displays the innards of the upper and lower teeth. Before departing the dentist chair, tykes undergo an enamel-fortifying fluoride treatment to combat tooth decay, and walk away with an electronic toothbrush, designed to effectively dismantle plaque uprisings and rival the buzzing of any nearby bees.
Although Desert Sky Dental might seem like a run-of-the-mill dentist's office at first glance, a closer look reveals more. Among the beige walls and carpets are little touches designed to make kids feel at home: images of superheroes hanging on the walls and toys, a drawing table, and a bubbling fish tank in the lobby. Adults also divert their attention from the precarious action taking place in their mouths by setting their eyes on the overhead TV to watch movies or the latest episode of Barney and Friends. Led by Dr. Scott Gunnell, the staff specializes in general dental care, as well as cosmetic dentistry and implant restorations.
As they enter the training circle at Curves, female guests come face-to-face with the smiles of other women. And just as points on a circle share a common distance from the circle's center, workout participants share the experiences of those nearby by trading stations throughout the 30-minute training session. One minute is spent on a piece of strength-training equipment built for feminine frames and designed to work two opposing muscle groups with a single movement. Exercisers then move on to a recovery station, where they run, jog, or dance to maintain heart rates and keep platforms in place during momentary losses of gravity.
While some do chin-ups on the pull-up bars others lift barbells and swing kettlebells overhead, while still others flip enormous tractor tires from end-to-end. It’s all part of the daily routine at CrossFit Queen Creek, where trainers change up the exercises each day to stave off boredom. The small group sizes in each class also ensures personal attention, while the functional full-body motions of the workouts ensures total body fitness.
Like a trip to the all-you-can-dance buffet, Jazzercise incorporates moves from hip-hop, yoga, Pilates, jazz dance, and air-busting kickboxing. In 60 minutes of class, participants of all ages and levels will benefit from improving their cardio, strength, and flexibility while burning off up to 500 calories and improving their chances of impressing Kevin Bacon at a celebrity dance-a-thon. Dancing with the Stars two-time champion Cheryl Burke is a big fan of Jazzercise’s improvisational workouts, but clients won’t need her encyclopedic knowledge of flashy footwork and spirit-fingered dance moves to get the most out of each class. Those prone to first-class jitters can review the basic moves before their shimmy session.
