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.
Fit Time for Women leads an all-female ensemble through energizing, calorie-kicking classes, including Flirty Girl sessions, which harness the power of dance to tone and trim torsos. Tara, an experienced instructor, models sensual movements drawn from music videos, pole routines, chair dancing, and the peacock's courtship ritual to transform workouts from repetitive drudgery into spirited hullabaloos. Up to 30 shimmiers per class undulate abs, gyrate shoulders, and pop hips to the heart-pumping tunes of club music. After learning Flirty Girl's fun, steamy dance routines, students strut away with enough confidence to cartwheel into their bosses' offices and demand all office chairs be replaced with gilded thrones.

Treatment times and results will vary depending on the area treated and hair-growth cycles.
Sequestered in 151 acres of rolling hills and immaculate greenery, Woodford Hills Country Club whisks patrons through a bucolic landscape that features amenities both recreational and relaxing. Nimble golf carts take clubbers slaloming the fairways of the club's picturesque, 18-hole golf course, which runs alongside a horse farm and caters to golfers of all abilities with a player-friendly layout and strategic equine caddies. Outstretched toes test the waters of the club's outdoor pool, and the outdoor tennis courts sate racket-wielders' competitive spirits and affinity for yellow fuzz. Woodford Hills Country Club Grill and Bar invites midday or after-hours revelry amid burgundy walls and mahogany accents with Friday night dinner specials and crisp, cold drinks.

Weissinger Hills Golf Course’s 18-hole layout bounds across 6,526 yards of rolling countryside to form a player-friendly par 72. The course’s narrow fairways encircle a quaint, hilltop clubhouse, from which players can plot a pin-hunting expedition that will bring them into contact with treacherous bunkers, water hazards on five holes, and thoroughbreds intent on outsprinting every golf cart and outsmarting every caddy. A stint at the driving range rattles the rust off of swings, ensuring clubbers won’t be ambushed by the demanding second hole, where an uphill fairway and a green hidden behind four water hazards coalesce to form the course's hardest-rated hole. PGA-certified pro Bryan Slone roams the grounds, divulging golf wisdom in various lesson packages. The club’s facilities include a fully stocked pro shop and a snack bar with cool drinks, light fare, and a sand trap full of incriminating scorecards.
