With more than 18 years of experience, Dr. Yadegar has learned that a dentist's job includes making people comfortable. She expresses this philosophy through New Age Dental, whose office minimizes the sterile, clinical feel that characterizes many dental practices and day spas for androids. Once patients have made themselves comfortable in her chair, she applies her signature gentle touch when performing the full range of cosmetic and general dental services.
As the owner and primary trainer of Heat Personal Fitness, Antonius draws on an impressive background to whip clients into shape. The certified personal trainer got his start in the navy, where he served as a cook, diver, and surface warfare expert, all while studying various martial arts, including jiujitsu, muay thai, and judo. Today, he incorporates what he knows best—fitness and people—into intense cardio and strength classes at Heat. Peppered with elements of kickboxing and boxing, his outdoor boot-camp classes present a constantly changing regime of calisthenics, body-weight exercises, and kettlebell work, followed up with a bit of yoga. Antonius also offers an indoor women’s only class, playfully dubbed Hottyz and centered on sculpting muscles with help from the TRX suspension trainers, free weights, and step aerobics.

In the 50-plus years that Dr. Joseph Ravenna has been practicing medicine, he's developed some theories regarding obesity and weight loss. He believes that both conditions can be blamed not only on the foods we eat or the ThighMasters we don?t squeeze, but also the society we live in and the culture we're surrounded by. Dr. Ravenna?s staff aims to educate clients on healthier ways of thinking about weight, offering them medical and pharmaceutical support as they work to uncover their slimmer selves.
At Splash! Buccaneer Bay Waterpark, the sun's rays sift through tall palms and glisten on explosions of water as families rocket out of twirly slides into the pool. After shooting out of those slides, they can grab a tube and head for the lazy river, then clamber over a marooned pirate ship surrounded by cannon walls and benches made from wharf planks. A skull rock keeps watch while some take respite from the heat beneath canopies resembling sails. To keep kids 48" and shorter giggling, there's a Spray Pad Zone with fountains to run through and cascades of water, a zero-depth beach, and dumping buckets. The adjacent 25-yard pool is open to all ages, giving guests ample room to play Marco Polo or a game of underwater chess.
At the end of the day, everyone can refuel at the Big Backyard Grille. There, families dine on pizzas and burgers and keep cool with Hawaiian shaved ice. Splash! Buccaneer Bay Waterpark offers free parking, and life jackets and tubes are included at no extra charge.
Reclining in a massage chair, you enjoy a paraffin-wax treatment as the scents of aromatherapy drift up your nose and ease away the day's tension. Though this sounds like a scene set in an upscale day spa, it's actually the treatment clients receive when they visit Harmony Dentistry. Kicking cold and clinical vibes to the curb, Harmony Dentistry's office could easily be mistaken for a spa?thanks to a designer-created reception area, art-covered walls, and friendly staff. Still, the dentists that stroll through the office halls don't simply rely on decor and glue traps to convert first-timers into regulars; equipped with the latest technologies and advanced laser procedures, they skillfully handle most any dental procedure while producing as little discomfort possible.
