Dentistry is a true family business for the professionals at Ocean Breeze Dental. Dr. Mary Kalimnios first opened her practice in 2000 in Melbourne, but soon expanded to a larger office in Rockledge, where she welcomed her daughter, Dr. Barbara Wetmore, and son-in-law, Dr. Jason Wetmore. The cavity-busting trio also gets help from Dr. Kalimnios’ husband, Dino, who works as the team’s master denture technician, the couple’s son, John, who crafts the practice’s crowns and ceramic restorations, and the advanced, crown-fitting CEREC 3D inLab CAD/CAM system, which was found in a basket on the family’s doorstep. When not working to brighten and strengthen smiles of all ages, Dr. Kalimnios and her brood strengthen their skills by traveling to national and international conferences to stay abreast of the latest dental-care advancements. Dr. Barbara Wetmore also holds certification as a Botox and Dermafil professional, which she uses to tend to creased foreheads, furrowed brows, and unusually wrinkled teeth.
Dr. Roger Bassin doesn't tell new patients why he should be their cosmetic surgeon. Instead, he puts them in contact with past patients to help them learn about the experience and life-changing results from people who have been through it themselves.
At Dr. Bassin's side is a supporting staff that performs aesthetic and cosmetic nonsurgical procedures such as Botox and vein removal. Meanwhile, the center's aesthetician Marsha Ostrander reenlivens faces with 15 years' experience performing facials, masks, waxing, and more, and a kissing booth manned by an electric eel.
Dr. Kevin Fogarty employs years of professional experience to alleviate chronic pain and bring bodies to their optimal working condition. Chiropractic care aims to improve body function and health with regular spinal adjustments and drug-free, wellness-oriented treatment. During the first visit, an initial exam familiarizes the doctor with patients’ medical histories and concerns, and an x-ray if necessary deliver in-depth analysis of the spine and its glitter-filled core. On following visits, the well-trained hands of an experienced chiropractor deliver healing adjustments to wayward vertebrae, treating injuries and chronic health issues by repairing harmful subluxations, misalignments of spinal bones that place pressure on vital nerves, blocking impulses to important organs or forcing feet to perform involuntary clog-dance routines.
At Neo Laser Medical Spa, two physicians, a registered nurse, and a licensed aesthetician use the latest technology to beautify skin. Their multiple laser systems form a cosmic tag-team that can rejuvenate bodies from head to toe. A fractional CO2 laser dramatically reduces pigmentation problems and other signs of aging, a Fraxel laser reduces wrinkles with minimal downtime, and a CoolTouch laser gently diminishes acne and acne scarring. The team also employs lasers to eradicate spider veins and unwanted hair and performs laser-assisted SmartLipo procedures that are less invasive than traditional liposuction.
But lasers aren't the only tools in Neo Laser's anti-aging kit. Clinical staffers combat wrinkles with Botox and dermal fillers, and customize facials or medical peels with petrochemical- and paraben-free Image Skincare products. The medical spa's complimentary consultations include a skin analysis with a detailed written report and photos, as well as 30 minutes with an aesthetician to discuss the best way to remove a mole or a mustache drawn on in permanent marker.

Exercise is challenging, and people frequently give up on their fitness routines. How do you keep clients motivated?
We stalk them like they are delicious, fresh out of the oven Krispy Kreme donuts. We develop and maintain personal relationships with all of our clients, and we build a social environment where they can meet other people suffering for the same goal. We aren't just a gym; we are a community
Sweating to the oldies is acceptable, but sweating to the blues less so. Do you find that certain styles and genres of music generate more intense workouts?
Our music choices are dictated by the clients in a given class. Any and all genres can be heard at different times.
Besides working out, what else can clients do to spend their time at your facility?
Nutritional counseling and off-site gatherings. We also offer beach workouts once a week and paleo potlucks once a month. There's also a running club, a racing team, and marathon training.
Is there anything else you want to add that we didn't cover?
We are here to help everyone and anyone reach their goals. While CrossFit is a constantly varied approach to functional fitness, our coaches are top of their fields in particular specialties?from our running coach to our Olympic weightlifters. They can bring you from couch potato to ultra runner and help you achieve what seems impossible.
Marine Corps Sergeant Ron Davis gave 10 years of service to the military. He also spent most of his life involved in youth sports, serving as head coach and defensive coordinator for youth football teams. With BeStrong Boot Camp, he implements strategies that he learned in both of his previous fields to devise a team-oriented workout program that incorporates all the motivational factors, full-body fitness techniques, and guided instruction one would need to get in shape. Nobody at BeStrong will say that the regimen is easy, but it's achievable. The 45-minute, military-like workouts, which occur three times a week for six weeks, benefit from Ron's encouragement as opposed to just a collective hivemind pushing everyone subconsciously. Ron gives each student personal attention and helps them modify any workouts to align with their physical needs.
