Specializing solely in whitening smiles, the technicians of Express Teeth Whitening Center help fade blemishes on teeth, allowing patrons to smile with confidence, whether it's for that job interview or presentation, or to just feel more at ease, all without the hassle of a dental-office visit. For teeth-whitening treatments, a technician will assess the type of treatment that will work best for the client by using a mouth tray with either 36% or 44% carbamide peroxide gel or a cheek retractor with 16% hydrogen peroxide whitening gel. After that, the technician will provide the client with protective glasses and activate the stain-zapping power with a blue light. The combination whitens teeth two to seven shades and produces immediate results, unlike going back in time to un-drink a year's worth of cups of coffee.

For many years, the scariest thing about golf has been the Sansabelt pants. With today's Groupon, trade gentle golf claps for screams of putting panic: for $15, you get four rounds at Monster Mini Golf in Marietta, a $30 value. Come once by yourself and save the other three passes for when you have the hiccups, or bring three friends and see who has the strongest stomach for fun monster statues.
If you’re like most people, seeing another windmill boringly swooping its blades on a standard miniature golf course makes you secretly long for glow-in-the-dark zombies. Monster Mini Golf has heard those silent screams and created a fright-filled attraction perfect for couples, kids, adults with kids, and adults unafraid of sharing a fun evening with Dracula. Monster Mini Golf’s owners created most of the oversized monsters that stalk their greens and constitute the course’s obstacles. The creatures glow under ample black lights, and range in monstrosity from animated cuddliness to Bella-Lugosity. Kids of all ages are able to appreciate Monster Mini Golf's kitschy post-structuralist take on the play of difference between signifier and signified.
The links consist of 18 holes spread over 12,600 square feet, and the focus of the course is on challenging angles. Monster Mini golf offers just the right level of challenge to entertain both kids and adults. The Marietta branch opens its creaky doors from 2 p.m. to 9 p.m. Tuesday through Thursday, 2 p.m. to 10 p.m. Friday, noon to 10 p.m. Saturday, and noon to 8 p.m. Sunday. Check Monster Mini Golf's website for upcoming holiday hours.
Monster Mini Golf also offers themed party rooms, such as the Haunted Mansion; a quarter arcade; and traditional arcade challenges, including skee ball and glowing air hockey. Success at these monster-supervised games offers not only personal fulfilment, but also the thrill of having conquered death incarnate. Plus you win prizes. While playing, be sure to listen for Monster Mini Golf’s own in-house radio station, “W.I.R.D. (Weird Radio),” whose live, on-site DJ hands out prizes for goofy reasons on the links.

Dr. George Violin, armed with nearly a quarter-century's worth of refractive-surgery experience, goes to battle with patients' misshaped corneas so they can enjoy functional sight without glasses or contact lenses. Instead of a traditional thin metal blade, the IntraLase procedure creates corneal flaps with rapid pulses of laser light, resulting in reshaped corneas that can heal faster and withstand awkward eye contact from strangers. Prior to the procedure, patients must come in for a complimentary consultation and pre-operative eye exam where the experienced staff will perform diagnostic tests to ensure that eyes are viable candidates for LASIK. After the surgery, which takes five to 10 minutes per eye (the entire appointment lasts about 45 minutes), patients will typically come in for follow-up visits throughout the next year to answer questions and remedy x-ray vision.
Dr. Yi Luo’s grandfather spent his 97 years of life helping those with medical needs. And for the past 15 years, Dr. Luo has continued his legacy by healing patients with alternative therapies, such as cupping, tui na massage, noninsertion acupuncture, and herbal medicine.
Ilya Livshin has built Landmark Dental around a specific type of patient—the one who doesn't want to be there. He understands that dental care can be an intimidating process for some, so to make the whole experience more enjoyable, he’s handpicked his staff members for their friendliness, patience, and gentle touch. Together with a board-certified anesthesiologist, Dr. Livshin also specializes in sedation dentistry for patients who experience dental anxiety or can't see a white lab coat without bursting into a dance number from Little Shop of Horrors. He further promotes a relaxing, comfortable environment with quiet, minimally intrusive technology and soothing music.
After earning his doctor of dental medicine degree at Tufts University School of Dental Medicine, Dr. Livshin joined the US Air Force. The native of St. Petersburg, Russia completed an advanced education in general dentistry program at Bolling Air Force Base in Washington, DC, and underwent hands-on training in complex restorative and cosmetic procedures. He offers a full range of general dental services as well as veneers, implants, oral and gum surgery, smile-straightening Invisalign treatments, and Zoom! teeth whitening.
