Invisalign straightens crooked chompers through a combination of highly advanced, 3-D computer graphics and the spells of good old-fashioned orthodontia. Eleven different orthodontic groups feature orthodontists specially trained and certified in the Invisalign process, which eschews cumbersome braces for clear, removable aligners that are virtually invisible to the unclothed eye. An initial exam, including x-rays, photos, and impressions of your mouth terrain (a $325 value), will pave the way for a flurry of calibrated teeth sheaths that are designed to slowly shift your walnut crackers into perfect alignment throughout the course of about 12 months (duration varies by patient). Progressing teeth earn a new set of aligners every two weeks and visit their Invisalign specialist every four to eight weeks. The total cost of an Invisalign treatment varies with each customer (it can range from $3,500 to $8,000); this Groupon gets you $1,000 to put toward that final cost.

While working as a plus-size fashion stylist, Doretta Johns became frustrated with boutiques’ attitudes toward full-figured women. She decided to put her eye for fashion to use in creating Couture Queen, a boutique that specializes in dressing women sized 14 and higher. Her fashion haven includes classic styles that flatter every figure as well as more edgy pieces that accent a wardrobe, with an array of shoes and handbags to match. Doretta can order in larger sizes by special order, and also offers personal styling sessions to help clients figure out what works for their style, body type, and current wardrobe. This one-on-one treatment helps women own their own style and gives them enough confidence to strut down runways made out of parked police cars.
Sometimes kids need help burning off all their excess energy. When they've done enough laps around the living room sofa, they shake off the boredom at Kidz-Clubhouse. Inside bounce houses, they leap into the air, then ricochet through obstacle courses and whoosh down slides. Meanwhile, staff keep an eye on the sock-footed moppets to ensure safety rules are followed and that no kid tries to sell life insurance while no one is looking.
Herb & Soul chefs B. Taylor and David Thomas operate under a simple mantra with several implications. When they say their mission is to "feed the soul," they mean that their fried chicken, short ribs, and Georgia bread pudding are more than just items on the menu—they’re nourishing reminders of the home-cooked meals of childhood.
They also mean that they do their best to foster long-standing relationships with local farmers and stock their small, down-home establishment with organic produce, grass-fed meats, and sustainably sourced fish. Herb & Soul's support of sustainable agriculture benefits the environment as well, since the restaurant converts its waste into compost and recycles its oil on the kitchen’s slip 'n' slide.
