Dr. Prakash K. Sojitra believes in keeping his patients informed as much as he believes in good dental hygiene. To make this happen, he first examines for decay in a patient's enamel and bone with thorough exams and x-rays, which also lay out panoramic diagrams of teeth so he can determine bite relationships. The doctor then relates his findings to patients in simple terms so they can make informed decisions about treatment plans. Educated patients, the doctor finds, feel empowered about their dental health and are thus more likely to maintain their dental upkeep instead of waiting for their teeth to develop deeper, more costly problems. In addition, Dr. Praskash sees patients for dental emergencies such as broken teeth, bitten tongues, and infectious smiles; he also spends a good amount of time devising lifetime treatment plans to help prevent such emergencies.
Dr. Jasbir Cheema knows his way around general- and cosmetic-dentistry treatments and technology. His skill with Invisalign systems has earned him the status of being the number one and Super Elite Invisalign Provider status from the makers of Invisalign, who awarded him this designation as he's treated more than 3,500 patients with the clear braces and treats at least 500 Invisalign patients every six months. With the i-CAT 3-D cone-imaging system, he can peer into noggins to see his clients' tooth configurations with meticulous clarity. He and his team of managing and associate dentists use these technologies and more to reconstruct, straighten, clean, and whiten teeth in seven offices across California and one on Jupiter.
Judith treats patients using the John F. Barnes Myofascial Release Approach, a method developed to release bodies from painful pressure caused by tight connective tissues. During each session, therapist Judith Glennon uses her 13 years of experience in the technique to gently works muscles without using lotions or creams, allowing her fingertips to detect areas that need attention. The process allows the connective tissues that surround muscles and bones to elongate and relax, helping to soothe issues ranging from everyday stress to fibromyalgia. With continued and consistent treatment, myofascial release can not only relieve everyday stress but create structural changes thus relieving many chronic issues that people experience.

Robert Taylor, owner and head instructor at Robert Taylor's Shudo-Kan Karate, has a simple philosophy on teaching martial arts and fitness: "We make it fun," he says. "We understand each person has a different pace, so we push them at their pace, not the pace of the other person." He carries that style of teaching over into all of his classes, from training kids in the earliest steps of karate to helping adults get fighting-fit with muay thai or Zumba classes. He rounds out the schedule with judo, grappling, and weapons form classes, giving students a complete spectrum of training in martial arts both ancient and modern.

Invisalign straightens crooked chompers with a combination of highly advanced, 3-D computer graphics and the spells of old-fashioned orthodontia. The Invisalign process eschews cumbersome braces for clear, removable aligners that are virtually invisible to the unclothed eye. An initial 30-minute exam, including x-rays, photos, and impressions of your mouth terrain, paves the way for a flurry of calibrated teeth sheaths that are designed to slowly shift walnut crackers into perfect alignment. The total cost of an Invisalign treatment varies for each customer (it can run anywhere from $2,000 to $8,000); this Groupon gets you $2,500 toward that final cost. View some Invisalign FAQs here.
