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.
It takes Lord Eye Center's opticians one hour to produce a pair of prescription glasses. Working at an onsite lab, they fit frames from more than 30 designers, using an electronic tracing device to render the thinnest lenses possible. The shop's optometrists can also prescribe various types of contact lenses, from continuous wear and disposable to bifocals and colored lenses. Dr. Whit Lord, owner of Lord Eye Center, scouts out the latest cornea-hugging designs as a member of several advisory panels for contact-lens manufacturers.
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.
Inspired by the fast-growing Anusara style, Yoga Me Fit opens minds, hearts, and bodies to an uplifting, peaceful philosophy that promotes physical and emotional well-being in a tight-knit group setting. Work up a sweat sporadically by opting for the 10-class pass, or commit to a curriculum with today's second option. The six-week course spends one week highlighting each of Anusara's five Universal Principles of Alignment, with a final cumulative session for reinforcement. The studio provides mats so students don't have to make their own out of sanitized jerky wrappers.
