Since 1956, Woodbury Family Dental's talented dentists have kept teeth in mint condition with services that range from routine cleanings to complex oral surgeries. They skillfully perform these treatments with the help of advanced technologies such as the Waterlase laser, which replaces unpleasant drilling with a gentle combination of laser beams and water. Patients can also opt for cosmetic procedures, such as veneers or Zoom 2 teeth whitening, which lifts stains from drinking coffee or brushing teeth with toothpaste from the gag store. Sedation dentistry puts nervous patients at ease throughout appointments.
Black Diamond Store's roots stretch back to 1957, when 18-year-old Yvon Chouinard began pounding out mountain-climbing gear with a hammer and an anvil. Chouinard's gear was a quick hit within the climbing community, and today, some 50 years and a name change later, his backyard operation has prospered into a global corporation with offices on three continents.
Despite such profound growth, the company holds true to the values that helped it thrive. Its climbing and skiing products undergo rigorous testing to sustain the highest possible quality while utilizing the latest technologies to keep users one step ahead of the game. And, rather than testing gear on trembling, acrophobic mannequins, the company's employees try out Black Diamond products themselves—like the company's customers, they're climbers, skiers, and adventurists, too.
After ascending towering kitchen countertops, bunk beds, and dangerous shoelace-engulfing escalators, the next logical conquest for serious climbers is a rock wall. Rockreation Sport Climbing Center offers 7,500 square feet of sculpted climbing terrain that firms forearms and strengthens finger holsters into walnut-crushing wall motors. During a one-month membership (a $58 value, with an included $39 enrollment fee), climbers will have unlimited access to 45-foot-high walls, bouldering areas, and top rope challenges while improving fitness and shedding gravity’s shackles. Weight machines and cardiovascular equipment are available to help nurture the core strength of a free-climbing gecko, while included climbing equipment outfits members with fashionable gear envied by fashion-forward mountain goats. Before you hit the rocks, Rockreation's experienced instructors will provide helpful climbing tips during one introductory Fight Gravity class (level 1, 2, or 3, depending on experience), included in your new membership. As an added bonus, if you decide to continue your membership beyond your first month, your $39 enrollment fee will be permanently waived.
Chiseled core. Leaner muscles. Straightened posture. More restful sleep. Increased lung capacity. These are just some of the benefits of Pilates, and instructor Chantel Tauteoli is prepared to share them at A Beautiful SurpriZe. Her students work toward these benefits as they jump, stand, lie down, or kneel atop Pilates Reformers in group or private lessons, which take place at three area locations.
Silver Star Hardware’s friendly staff skillfully proffers advice for home improvement while helping to outfit and accessorize homes with an eclectic, frequently updated array of functional and decorative accents.

Fulfill metal urges with a spangling of cast-iron star knobs ($4.50) or copper house numbers ($11.75 each) that ambidextrously emblazon either addresses or pi, or pin households’ hearts on their façades with vivid peace-dove banners ($12).
