A fleet of dentists and oral surgeons at various dental offices have banded together with one aim: to keep Georgians' smiles as bright and healthy as possible. Managed by the same business, each Dental Practice Group of Atlanta office has its own name and staff. Patients at each location recline in comfy chairs as licensed dentists and experienced technicians remove excess plaque, inspect gums for signs of disease, and x-ray chompers for cavities. Available at every office, Venus White teeth-whitening treatments improve upon pearly whites' luminescence and ability to serve as a projection surface for miniature film festivals.
Dr. Richard Blue of Blue Laser Group has been in his patients' shoes. A specialist in refractive surgery, he underwent a procedure himself in 1991, and so can personally relate to the trials his patients go through and talk to the leaps in technology that have been made since then. He performs Lasik services with a Wavelight EX 500 laser, with many patients able to return the next day to regular activities. Besides Lasik, Dr. Blue and his team perform routine eye exams and treat eye diseases.
At The Solution, Dr. Crews and his staff help patients safely shed unwanted fat and maintain healthy lifestyles with a range of noninvasive treatments. Services include detoxifying body wraps, custom nutrition plans, and stress-reduction therapy.
South Hall CrossFit’s coaches prepare their charges for every kind of physical activity they might engage in. To ensure holistic fitness, they teach a system of functional-movement exercises, including pushing, lifting, pulling, and running. Those actions combined with strength and cardio training—as well as equipment such as weighted sleds and medicine balls—enhance speed, agility, and power. To avoid boring students and their muscles with repetitive exercises, the instructors also change the routines each session to execute truly challenging full-body workouts.
Windsong Sailing Academy blends the educational and the recreational aspects of sailing. It is a formula that has inspired lifelong passions in several former students. One student abandoned his corporate life to sail the Caribbean with his son, and another couple spent their retirement as the co-captains of an Island Packet 38 sailboat, boating past Miami, the Bahamas, and several countries recently acquired by Tom Hanks. Over the course of Windsong’s 25 years of nautical adventures, Captain Dave Crumbley and his team have still sought to instill both knowledge and passion for the sport they love. With their educational courses, you’ll learn both theory and technique, and you can choose to take a program that can lead to certification with the American Sailing Association. For pure buoyant bliss, board one of Windsong’s themed outings on Lake Lanier, which have included a murder mystery, a Jamaican-music night, and a storytelling voyage.
The instructors at Choe’s HapKiDo Karate of Flowery Branch believe martials arts to be more than a flurry of kicks and punches.

They offer martial-arts classes for students of all ages, and also foster self-discipline, skill, and fit forms with fitness-kickboxing and Zumba sessions.
