Maintaining a healthy smile requires a comprehensive approach to dental care, one that focuses on preventative, cosmetic, and restorative treatments. At Modern Smiles Dentistry, Dr. Margarita Rivera and Dr. Huy Huynh embrace each of these approaches, routinely seeking out new training in the latest dental techniques and technologies along the way.
The doctors and their staff protect teeth by performing thorough cleanings and checking for potentially troublesome conditions. If teeth become damaged, crowns, veneers, or composite fillings can conceal signs of chips or cracks. The staff takes a deeper look beneath the gum line with diagnostic x-rays as well as DIAGNOdent equipment, which uses laser light scans to check for decay or teeth made entirely of prisms.
At Kinder Kicks, parents and children exercise, learn, and bond during get-togethers that fuse age-appropriate activities with applicable life lessons, from sharing to traffic safety and self-control. Three different age groups—Remarkable Me, Jumping Joey, and Leadership Lion—divvy up the action for newborns through 4-year-olds, with each tier focusing on skills and principles that are easily digestible for its participants.
Remarkable Me sessions, for instance, offer tactile, auditory, and visual stimulation for toddlers while their parents engage in cardio- and strength-training workouts. As kids advance, so does the curriculum: by the time they reach Leadership Lion status, youngsters are practicing basic martial arts to develop a positive attitude toward physical fitness and learn how to kick through their bedroom's forcefield when they're grounded. Little ones are ushered through this progression by friendly instructors, along with The Remarkables—a team of animal characters that makes visits all the more enjoyable.
With 45 academies across 16 states, Championship Martial Arts instills confidence, self-discipline, and healthy lifestyles in men, women, and kids of all ages through its fun karate classes. Certified instructors help adult students burn fat and build muscle with motivating, no-pressure karate courses, while kids and teens learn respect and teamwork with youth classes for ages three and up. Under the watchful eye of skilled martial arts experts, martial artists safely punch, leap, kick, and block their way to personal achievement and good health.
Dr. William Robbins and the staff at Nu Wellness Rejuvenation Center help each of their clients battle the effects of aging and weight gain with a host of beautifying treatments. Weight-loss treatments spur on the fat-burning process and rid bodies of bulges that stubbornly defy diet and exercise. Botox and Juverderm injections, on the other hand, help to smooth away wrinkles while facials and peels keep faces looking radiant. Hormone therapy rounds out the center's offerings and works to keep body chemistry properly balanced.
Licensed acupuncturist Sylvia Rosario, a doctor of oriental medicine from Florida College of Integrative Medicine, uses acupuncture and its many variations as a healing power at Acupuncture Integrative Wellness Center. Depending on her patients' needs, which can range from needing pain relief to a newly knit sweater, Dr. Rosario can schedule traditional acupuncture, acupoint injection therapy, laser acupuncture therapy, cupping therapy, needle-less acupuncture, or a combination of therapies. Dr. Rosario also offers alternative treatments such as reiki, homeopathy, tai chi, and herbal medicine to foster overall wellness.
The team at Active Living Health Center crafts their own healthcare approach called "Intensegrity"—a blend of chiropractic care, manual therapy, and active rehabilitation.

Rachelle Smith, the team provides the community with affordable holistic healthcare focused on preventing injury and illness. Their services are designed to first improve overall wellness—with services such as acupuncture and chiropractic care —and then set patients on a path toward maintaining a healthy lifestyle. Some of the lifestyle changes they promote include eating a healthy diet, following a regular exercise routine, and avoiding hungry bears.
