The Kentucky Center for Orthodontics’ trio of doctors all got into orthodontics when they realized just how much a great smile can improve someone’s life. Dr. Douglas Durbin, the inventor of the Flosspik polypropylene interproximal dental cleaner, Dr. Thomas Garner, and Dr. John Huang enhance the smiles of both children and adults with Invisalign treatments, braces with clear brackets, and invisible retainers glued to the back of teeth. They use digital imaging to construct treatment plans, they avoid headgear whenever possible, and they never just pull out a tooth when it won’t cooperate. Under their steady hands, The Kentucky Center for Orthodontics has straightened the teeth of more than 35,000 patients, including Miss Kentucky USA 2009 Maria Montgomery.
The 18 holes at Duckers Lake Golf Resort form not just a golf course, but a challenge in decision-making. Should golfers try to fly the pond on the first hole's slight dogleg or lay up? What about on the second, where there's no pond but going out-of-bounds is a real risk for all but the most precise drives? Similar quandaries can be found throughout the course. Naturally, avid golfers thrive on these types of strategic tests, and Duckers Lake has them in abundance. Water comes into play on 12 of the 18 holes, and sand traps can be found on nearly all of them, perfect for scratching in some quick mathematical calculations to triangulate the best approach shot.
Once their foursome's final putt has trickled into the 18th cup, players can head to the course restaurant for a pint of beer and a quick tally of the scorecard. If they don't like what they see, they might consider logging some hours at the course's practice putting green or driving range or upgrading their equipment at the pro shop.
Navy vets Dr. Jan J. Weisberg, M.D., and Melanie Weisberg team up to fight dermal discoloration with PCA products and skin-evening microdermabrasion. During the noninvasive 30-minute treatment, a certified beauty booster gently cleanses and exfoliates the visage to uncover the fresh face or pile of gold coins below. After the skin scrubbing escorts dead cells off of the premises, a moisturizing peel works to deeply hydrate arid skinscapes. Patients can leave the Weisbergs' office with smoother and brighter skin, and may help diminish the looks of fine lines, scars, and cheekbone tattoos.

In their efforts to improve communication in the central nervous system by addressing nerve interference, chiropractors provide spinal adjustments and supplemental treatments such as cervical traction, therapeutic exercise and balance-strengthening wobble boards. Their practice extends far beyond the wellness centers, however: community-outreach efforts take them to health fairs, offsite spinal screenings, and complimentary workshops on a range of wellness topics. They also devote themselves to nonprofit work with several organizations, including The Make-A-Wish Foundation and the Greater Chicago Food Depository. At the Chiros Care Free Wellness Center, they examine and treat Chicago's homeless and HIV-positive population, fueled by their belief that everyone should have access to expert preventive care.
