The expert chopper doctors at The Art of Dentistry restore carnassial sheen in a friendly office replete with the latest dental technology. For take-home treatments, discolored mouth knives are first subjected to a careful molding to tailor bleaching trays to the upper and lower jaws, ensuring they fit comfortably in your mouth and uncomfortably in the mouth of covetous strangers. Three included syringes grant patients the ability to give repeat boosts to the pearlescent brilliance emanating from their neck oysters. Alternately, Groupon customers can erase a lifetime of Cray-Pas gnawing with the in-office BriteSmile treatment, which can whiten gum jewels an average of nine shades. A special blue light activates the whitening gel, which is reapplied three times during the treatment for optimal smile resolution and playback in HD-only bathroom mirrors. Between applications, patients can busy themselves watching DVDs or imagining how their newly glittering grin will strike fear into the hearts of romantic rivals and the occasional romantic cube steak.

Even before he founded PowerFit Bootcamp, JR Spear always felt a calling to transform people into fitness machines. A fourth-degree black belt and studied martial artist, Spear spent years training future Marine Corps officers and Iraqi soldiers in self-defense and combat skills. Later, Spear taught his own MMA fitness and cardio-kickboxing classes, along with personal and group training sessions.

At PowerFit Bootcamp, he and his staff of fitness instructors encourage each student to persevere by leading motivational and high-energy classes. At 12 indoor and outdoor locations, students undergo full-body workouts designed to jettison fat and tone muscle. Trainers welcome students of all stripes, giving them a period of time to complete each move, rather than a number of repetitions, encouraging each student to do as much as he or she can without feeling uncomfortable, overexerting, or resorting to time travel. Along the way, coaches track progress and motivate students by noting benchmarks during physical fitness tests on the first Monday and Tuesday of each month.

A former Parelli Natural Horsemanship Professional, Katy Nichoalds teaches students to bond with their horses by building trust and communicating through non-verbal cues. Students remain on the ground at the beginning of their lessons, which lets the horse know who's giving instruction and forces it to pay attention rather than daydream about starring in the Seabiscuit sequel. Once a connection is established, students can experiment with riding without the reins and communicating with the horse through physical contact. By learning to read the horse?s body language, students can engage it in silent conversation as they work through obstacles that may include traversing trails and, eventually, jumping over fences. To round out the Natural Horsemanship curriculum, Katy also sheds light on equine subjects such as proper grooming, which extends from brushing the horse's mane to selecting the best hoof polish.
