At Smile Designs by Dr. Karen Cooper, grins beam up to eight shades brighter with Zoom! whitening treatments. Clients begin treatments by reclining comfortably with warm blankets, paraffin wax, and CD selections as a short preparation covers the lips and gums. A dental tech then smothers teeth in a hydrogen-peroxide-based gel, which activates under a specific Zoom! light to break up discoloration and remove coffee, red wine, tobacco, and grass stains. The treatment requires three, 15-minute bleaching sessions, during which the client may relax, listen to music, or attempt to complete a crossword puzzle in Pig Latin.
A proud host of several PGA events, Henderson Golf Club presents a scenic and challenging course entwined with lush countryside and running streams. A traditional southern course, the 6,700-yard family of fairways is populated by an abundance of old-growth oak, pine, magnolia, and money trees, deliberately placed to reward straight shooting. Open and scenic, the front nine plays like a traditional links course, and the back nine takes full advantage of the tree-lined setting to intimidate claustrophobic golfers. Rife with wildlife, the course will provide you with an audience of native deer, bald eagles, and the reclusive surviving cast members of The Dukes of Hazzard. The included golf cart will help players travel from tee to tee with limited wear on their ostentatious golf trousers, and the included range balls will help rusty orb whackers find their groove before hitting the fairways.
Lord Eye Center's showroom currently boasts thousands of frames from over 30 designer lines. Its refracted selection has expanded over the past 30 years under the direction of Lord Eye's founder, Dr. R. Whitman Lord, who is vice president of the Georgia State Board of Examiners in Optometry. His staff of certified optometrists can straighten a distorted reality typically within an hour, using the on-site optical lab and privileged access to the Matrix's source code. Bringing some panache to impaired pupils, the Lord Eye Center carries a plethora of frames from designer brands such as Candies ($128+), Harley Davidson ($128+), Guess ($168+), and Nike ($198+). Single lenses ($69+) discipline myopic peepers into long-distance focus and bifocals ($99+) render both newspapers and stop signs comprehensible.
Bauer Coslick, a licensed and board-certified acupuncturist and herbalist, has some rumors to dispel. He doesn’t wear flowing robes, and his office isn’t located on the top of a remote mountain under a Bodhi tree. He’s just a native Savannahian who discovered acupuncture when it helped him recover from a skiing accident, and his clinic is similar to a relaxed and comfortable doctor’s office, with soothing music and ambient lighting to promote tranquility. There, Coslick offers holistic health services and, if possible, reduces the number of supplements his patients takes by identifying unnecessary overlaps, negative side effects, and pill-reminder boxes filled with Smarties.
Coslick’s services have proved to be effective for several patients, including a woman diagnosed with fibromyalgia and thyroid disease. After unsuccessful results from traditional medicine, the woman came to Coslick. He designed a regimen of “acupuncture, some herbal remedies, and [nutrition plans],” Coslick remembers. “Now, she’s lost more weight than any of her coworkers that are doing Weight Watchers, and she’s got more energy. She doesn’t have any body pain anymore. It’s really pretty amazing.”

Oak Park Dental Group has restored smiles for more than 36 years, and the office currently consists of a friendly staff and three doctors—general dentists Drs. Jan Cossar and Adrienne Wimbrow, as well as periodontist Dr. Ali Mehraban—who combine their varying specialties to cover the entire dental spectrum. Though emphasizing different areas of dentistry, such as cosmetic, periodontal, and family dentistry, the three doctors share a comprehensive approach to dentistry, considering both the function and aesthetic appearance of each individual tooth. The dentists' use of Cerec crowns, which are stronger than traditional crowns but appear natural, demonstrates their commitment to working with advanced technology to improve both the health and look of teeth. This advanced equipment is housed in an office that swells with elegance. In the lobby, dark hardwood floors run beneath leather furniture, and soothing yellow walls are relieved by broad windows that overlook a lush, green lawn.
