At Kentucky Oral Surgery & Dental Implant Center, board-certified oral and maxillofacial surgeons Drs. Thad Schulten, W. Ronald Harris, and Timothy Acord and their team of certified assistants use the latest techniques and technology to perform a variety of procedures. They specialize in treatments ranging from dental-implant surgery and wisdom-tooth removal to corrective jaw surgery, and monitor patients before, during, and after surgeries that feature intravenous (IV) sedation or outpatient general anesthesia. The skilled surgeons can also remove excess folds or under-eye bags with eyelid surgery, and use surgical or nonsurgical treatments to address sleep apnea resulting from an albatross-obstructed airflow.
With its studio's purple walls and its lobby's cushy armchairs, Evolve Health Studio doesn't look like a traditional gym. It's not that the studio lacks the resources of other gyms—after all, instructors lead daily boot-camp classes and Zumba workouts just like at any fitness center. But the staff members recognize the limitations of traditional fitness centers, which is why they hold cooking classes, life-coaching sessions, and even posture workshops.
It’s also why they encourage clients to build relationships with the other students in classes, a practice which provides emotional support and someone to stand on when clients need to retrieve their salad spinner from the top cabinet. Instructors can even lead whole families in workouts to help to build healthy approaches to exercise at any age.
At Ideal Dentistry, Drs. Christian W. Hahn and Dr. Gill specialize in cosmetic dentistry. Both doctors dedicate themselves to performing handcrafted cosmetic techniques that imbue refurbished smiles with a natural and realistic appearance. When patients arrive, they're escorted to a private consultation room to meet with one of the doctors and discuss their desired results. After a "quick-look" exam and a few digital photographs, the doctor will help the patient determine which dental tests and treatments should follow on their next visit.
The doctors demonstrate their compassion for patients and commitment to health by using safe, advanced dental technology. They also use safe and aesthetically pleasing compounds such as white composite and porcelain. So dedicated is Dr. Hahn to the use of natural ingredients in dentistry, he is the founder and president of Dr. Hahn’s Naturals, which exists for the sole purpose of replacing harmful chemicals with natural dental products. In addition, technologies such as digital x-rays spare patients the radiation exposure and anachronistic lectures of traditional x-ray equipment.
Sun rays and sweltering temperatures fill Bikram Yoga Louisville's colorful studio, bolstering minds and loosening muscles during daily Bikram yoga classes.

The studio's heat makes muscles more pliable, deepening stretches and extracting submerged toxins. Deep breaths draw fresh oxygen into the lungs and expel pent-up stress, filling students with relaxation that lasts long past 90-minute routines, lingering pleasantly as they climb into bed or tickle piranhas in their dreams.
