Drs. Brian and E. Glenn Clark draw from a combined 40 years of dental experience to preserve gums and their enamel tenants. During the initial visit, x-rays lay bare oral predicaments such as bone loss and trapped peanut butter, employing a digital technique that uses less radiation than conventional radiography. A dental exam follows, in which a tooth technician ousts tartar, checks for cavities, and cleans tusks with professional care. During the second appointment, clients receive four 15-minute Zoom! whitening treatments, using trays prepared during the initial visit. A chair-side collaboration between whitening gel and Zoom! light penetrates stains and disarms discoloration with charming vaudevillian banter, restoring the teeth's burnish.
Getting in shape isn't simply a goal to be reached and checked off. Instead, it's a lifetime commitment to fitness and healthy living. Trainer Chuck Weaver believes it’s the kind of commitment that anyone can make, provided that they have a willing spirit and deep reserves of determination. In 2010, he designed the EnduraSys Strength Training program by drawing upon his 10 years of experience in the U.S. military. Along with strength and conditioning classes, the scalable EnduraSys workouts accommodate patrons of virtually any age and fitness level, incorporating a variety of exercises intended to increase flexibility, bolster cardiac health, build muscle tone, and improve speed and agility. This well-rounded approach to fitness empowers people as they heft weights, swing kettlebells, and jog laps around the gym’s on-site black hole. With each class, visitors learn a little more about the habits and mindset required to live healthier and more physically fit lives. EnduraSys Strength Training, an official affiliate of the Reebok Spartan Race, also offers strength and conditioning courses for endurance racing.

At Gratitude Yoga, everything revolves around community. Paula Foxx, founder and director, feels it's important to engage in community and cultivate it whenever possible. With the help of her fellow instructors, Paula draws yogis together for multi-level classes that explore various yoga styles. During yin yoga classes, instructors model poses that stretch connective tissue; during Hatha classes, instructors link breath and flexibility as they guide students through synchronized breath movements, interwoven asanas, and accidental somersaults. Although instructors emphasize community, the studio's brick walls, worn wooden floors, and soft overhead lighting encourage introspection and self-improvement.
