A visit to Federal Way Smiles or Meridian South Family Dentistry feels like a family dinner, though instead of opening and closing your mouth in a succession of bites, you just continue to hold your mouth open. Dr. Lawrence Ladowski and Dr. Danielle Tomlinson—a father-daughter team—cultivate a convivial atmosphere, working to relax every patient that enters their office. Both friendly dentists prioritize one-on-one discussions with their clients, listening closely to oral-health concerns before providing options for treatment. First and foremost, the duo aims to prevent future instances of disease with cleanings and exams. They also address medical and cosmetic problems, offering a slew of services that range from teeth whitening to composite fillings and root canals. To appease those in need of a complete smile makeover, they provide options that include crowns, porcelain laminates, implants, and images of perfect teeth tattooed across the lips.

Hot Yoga Inc. likes to see you sweat. Not due to exhaustion or struggle, but because the perspiration caused by their classes encourages mental tranquility, muscle toning, and physical detoxification. Hot Yoga Inc. sends warmth deep into the skin and tissues instead of just decorating their studio with a bunch of Sun stickers. These higher temperatures help foster a greater range of motion as students of all skill levels follow a flowing series of yoga postures. Basic Hatha classes soothe the mind with a rush of endorphins while losing weight and improving flexibility, and Power Yoga pushes students with more intense workouts that build strength.
Northwest Curves, a fitness center designed exclusively for women, provides members with a 30-minute circuit of hydraulic resistance machines designed for an efficient cardio and strength training workout. During the training, attendees can burn up to 500 calories and work each major muscle group to work toward individual fitness goals. An experienced coach is always nearby to teach and motivate participants, and a soundtrack of fun, upbeat music cues participants to move on to the next station. Instead of fiddling with weight stacks and losing momentum, the hydraulic machines use your own body weight and fitness level to create resistance. Each machine uses push-and-pull motions to create toned, lean muscles perfect for crushing a grapefruit without looking like you can.
