Dr. Jeffrey J. Stein harnesses more than 20 years of experience to lead his professional team of bicuspid buffers in illuminating smiles with a plethora of health-boosting services. During the dental exam (an $85 value), a tooth technician scours each patient's mouth house in search of oral abnormalities, ghosts of baby teeth, and unwelcome tartar guests before a series of digital x-rays (a $125 value) and digital photos (a $40 value) expose chompers with cavities. The appointment concludes with a thorough polishing (a $93 value), where a dental doyen shines pearly whites until they're bright and plaque-free.
At Dental Pros, expert tooth wranglers Dr. Emanuel and Dr. Rabizadeh transform begrimed mouths into bright grins through cosmetic and general dental services. From veneers and Zoom! teeth whitening to dental emergencies such as root canals, the dentists maintain pearly whites' porcelain sheen using both modern techniques and time-honored ritualistic toothbrush sacrifices.
Melissa was a casual gym-goer for most of her life, until one day a fitness instructor suggested that she should consider teaching fitness classes. It took her a year to switch careers, moving from teaching elementary school to teaching group fitness classes. All the while, she was scooping up certifications in anything she could get her hands on, including a National Academy of Sport Medicine certification as a personal trainer. Armed with six certifications and a massage therapist license, Melissa— one of the top endurance athletes in Ventura county— decided to open her own gym, where she could share her love for fitness with others. Rocksteady Fitness was born with the belief that exercise could be, and should be, fun. To that end, Melissa helps whip clients into superb shape by teaching group fitness classes such as kettle-bell training, Pilates, Zumba, yoga, and boot camps.

It's safe to say that Sasaki Kenpo Karate's staff of world- and national-champion black belts knows what its doing when it comes to martial arts. The instructors—many of whom have trained national and world champions themselves—pass along their knowledge to kids, teens, and adults during martial-arts classes that teach basic skills alongside discipline and sportsmanship. Some of the instructors even began as Sasaki Kenpo students themselves.
Along with martial-arts classes, instructors lead Kamikaze Conditioning classes and personal-training sessions, both of which focus on toning bodies and blasting calories.
