After receiving his doctor of dental medicine degree, Dr. Diego Azar turned his attention to dental implants. He sought training on the subject and ultimately started to specialize in replacing missing teeth with the faux teeth. The procedure is one of many restorative and cosmetic dentistry services that he and his staff perform—along with whitening teeth, pinkening gums, and inserting inlays, crowns, fixed bridges, and veneers made from enamel-colored porcelain.
Building on more than 30 years of medical practice, Dr. Herbert R. Slavin evaluates patients with a range of diagnostic tests and uses natural therapeutic treatments. Additionally, he guides an experienced staff through aesthetic procedures such as skin tightening and functional procedures ranging from therapy for diabetes and thyroid issues to physical therapy and bio-identical hormone replacement. Dr. Slavin holds further accolades as a diplomat of the American College for Advancement in Medicine, a member of the American Academy of Anti-Aging Medicine, and the host of his own radio-broadcast show since 1990.
Total Life Medical Center, run by board-certified doctors, combats the effects of time with a variety of age-reversal services. Botox and facial-filler injections help to reverse wrinkles, and bioidentical hormone therapy infuses waning body chemicals with natural replacement hormones to strengthen the immune system, improve skin tone, and make patients feel more energized than a toddler on a sugar high. Radio-frequency sculpting can both contour bodies and level wrinkles with low-frequency ultrasound technology that disrupts fat cells and stimulates collagen. Those unsure of which anti-aging scientific procedure to undertake can sit down for a chat with the center's knowledgeable staff, who happily walk patients through the treatment process, offer post-session advice and knock-knock jokes, and address any side-effect concerns.
At each of Advanced Vision Care's five locations, a team of optometric physicians examines peepers of all age brackets for signs of aberration or disease. They then furnish patients with prescriptions that can be formed into contact lenses or slung into stylish frames from the likes of Prada, Lacoste, and BCBG. The staff also performs Lasik consultations, in which they determine candidacy, recommend a Lasik doctor, and provide a series of post-op checks. Most locations house a multilingual team, who can answer questions or reflect on metaphysical quandaries in English, Spanish, or Hebrew.

Wading through indoor heated pools, the instructors at British Swim School teach independent swimming skills to learners aged 3 years and older, adhering to a curriculum devised by British national swimmer Rita Goldberg.

Minnows sessions (ages 3 and up) teach wee swimmers basic water-survival skills, such as the back float. Turtle One and Turtle Two classes focus on freestyle, backstroke, and breaststroke maneuvers, honing more structured swimming skills in older kiddos. British Swim School's Shark courses enhance stamina and speed and teach even more demanding strokes, such as the butterfly. Adult classes are customized to address each participants' skill level.
