Drs. Mike and Myron Henrickson, a father-and-son duo, brandish sophisticated systems when nurturing their patients' oral health. Their CEREC 3-D and digital x-ray machines chart tooth and bone structures in intricate detail, giving the dental duo a comprehensive look at potential issues. Diagnodent laser cavity detectors search teeth for the smallest hint of decay. With intra- and extraoral cameras, the dentists can gain an up-close view of clients' molars.

PGA member Dave Colarusso corrects out-of-whack backswings and wobbly putter strokes during lessons held at The Ponds at Battle Creek. Colarusso is a graduate of Mississippi State University's Professional Golf Management program and has conducted more than 10,000 lessons, ensuring he knows the difference between a 3-wood and a stale Twizzler. Dave works one-on-one with students of any skill or experience level, identifying and addressing bad swing habits, discussing course-management techniques, and upgrading short games. The lessons should lay the foundation for students to reduce their golf score without turning "7" into "1" by erasing. If you don't have golf clubs, The Ponds at Battle Creek can provide a set.
The grin curators at Bleach Bright Smiles, armed with safe BleachBright gel, clear mouthpieces, and blue-light-emission LED lights, set out to whiten tooth collections by two to eight shades. Under a precisely calibrated glow, a carbamide peroxide solution attacks evidence of coffee, bilberry wine, and permanent markers that have scuffed dental façades over time. After about half an hour, you'll be ready to go home and illuminate the room with your smile during power outages and solar eclipses.
The Perfect Smile engineers whiter smiles through the dual efforts of LED light and powerful chemicals. During in-office appointments technicians delicately apply carbamide peroxide along with the LED light to slightly discolored dentines, then activate the products with exposure to specialized lights. Each 30-minute session helps break up the discoloring effects of food, coffee, and tobacco products. Customers can also opt to stylize their smile at home with take-home bleaching kits.
Family owned since it first welcomed customers in 1887, Strauss Skates and Bicycles has supplied every subsequent generation of Saint Paul's skaters and bikers with top gear and repairs. Specializing in hockey, the store stocks gear such as blades, boots, and skates, which resident sharpener Scott hones using more than 40 years of industry experience.
When that gear starts to smell, the Strauss team calls in the Sani Sport machine, whose 16-minute cycles kill nearly 99% of bacteria from hockey equipment so referees don't have to hose players down in between periods. In addition to its hockey goods, the Strauss crew spruces up bikes with in-depth tune-ups and offers custom head-stringing services for lacrosse players/
