Started in 1961 by Dr. Stanley Pearle, this nationally recognized and trusted eye-care center now operates in nearly 800 company and franchise locations nationwide. The master visionaries at Pearle are well-trained in assisting all bespectacled beings, from casual librarians to picky, temperamental Cyclopes. They'll help navigate a nearly endless array of sight-enhancing options: house lines of simple, durable frames and lenses, designer frames from Versace and DKNY, prescription Ray-Ban shades, and contact lenses to suit the chemistry of even sensitive sets of eyes.
The multi-lingual staff at Dr. Dental, a family-run practice, strives to shatter orthodontic stereotypes by tidying up tusks in an unintimidating office sporting the ambience of a friendly neighborhood establishment. Return choppers to a glowing state with a new-patient cleaning, a procedure that polishes pearly whites and analyzes teeth’s deep-seated fear of falling out and being exiled by a fairy. After a deep cleaning, the non-judgmental dentist administers bitewing x-rays to inspect for toothy ailments and lays out a long-term treatment plan for molar maintenance. Many locations offer after-hours and weekend appointment times for patients who are busy with work, family, or animal husbandry.
Perhaps what sets Drive Health & Fitness apart is its trio of owners: they include a personal trainer and nutritional consultant, a doctor specializing in obesity prevention, and Nick Groff, a paranormal investigator on Travel Channel's Ghost Adventures. Or maybe what sets Drive apart is the fact that members can access the equipment 24 hours a day. Those who prefer to work out in groups can opt for fitness classes or yoga sessions, and personal trainees work with trainers who each have at least 10 years' experience.
Maybe what draws some exercisers are the club's amenities, such as the dry saunas, glass-walled showers, juice bar, and onsite childcare. Whatever guests like most about it, they enter Drive Health & Fitness to find a laser focus on health and a sea of smiling faces ready to help them meet their goals.

At the conclusion of each class, attendees can hop over to Drive Health and Fitness for shower access and other amenities including saunas, childcare, and more fitness classes.
