Just because it's an old adage doesn't make it any less true: an ounce of prevention really is worth a pound of cure. Just ask the doctors at each American Dental of Florida location. At their practices, they avoid using the term "disease care." It's not because they don't know the ins and outs of tooth decay and periodontal disease; rather, they simply prefer to focus more on nipping possible problems in the bud instead of going through invasive treatments to fix their eventual aftermath. During regular exams and cleanings, they teach their patients how to clean, floss, and properly brush. They also point out habits to avoid—like consuming too much sugar, which is basically tooth enamel's evil twin. Of course, sometimes they still spot a cavity or other tooth trouble spot. Luckily, these dentists attend regular lectures and conventions that cover the latest techniques for procedures such as root canals and dental implants. They're also masters of cosmetic procedures as well, from single veneers to complete mouth restorations.
Baseball and softball players of all skill levels descend upon Extra Innings' 18,000-square-foot indoor facility to hone home-run-hitting swings and more. Players can swing, pitch, or field for 60 minutes inside one of the five indoor hitting tunnels that stretch 70 feet long, 15 feet wide, and 30 feet high as adjustable pitching machines sling unlimited fastballs toward the plate at speeds of up to 90 miles per hour. The facility outfits hitters with bats and helmets for no additional charge, and each tunnel is equipped with an L-screen, a pitcher's mound, and sliding nets that can transform the cage into an open-field area for practicing fielding skills and ribbon-dancing routines.
CrossFit Great Ones’ coaches believe in the CrossFit system because its functional-movement exercises performed with high intensity readies their students for all physical activities. Through its varied exercises and equipment, it also develops every muscle group while enhancing speed, agility, and power. The reason the coaches love the program, however, is the team spirit it evokes as coaches and students alike motivate each other to achieve their fitness goals. They further nurture that sense of community by sponsoring local charity events, volunteering, and donating a portion of new membership dues to charities.

Prestige Dance Company’s owners, Uwem Ekpo and Annie Mercedes, believe that dance should take place in a fun-filled environment. That explains the high energy that charges through each of their Latin-dance classes, which include salsa, bachata, and mambo styles. The duo also teaches Zumba, a dance-based fitness program that coalesces Latin dance and cardio more effectively than tango partners who practice on a treadmill. Regardless of style, all dance lessons serve the studio’s mission to help students find confidence on the dance floor.
