The Facial Aesthetic Designers aim to send their clients out into the world feeling beautiful and confident. Overseen by Dr. John Heimke, the designers' services range from dental overhauls to aesthetic rejuvenation via Botox, but focus on the doctor's specialty: cosmetic dentistry. In addition to dental implants and porcelain veneers, the designers promise patients white teeth for life with a program that includes visits twice a year for routine cleanings and complimentary whitening-gel refills, which fill custom trays for teeth.
Over the past 63 years, Thoma & Sutton Eyecare has crisscrossed Ohio and Kentucky, planting 20 eyewear outposts across the region.

Clients can peruse the up-to-date displays, which feature frames from designers such as Coach, Calvin Klein, and Kenneth Cole, before trying on a pair and slipping past a parole office.
If you have trouble deciding among flavors, it would be wise to visit Main Street Cupcakes sooner rather than later: their cupcake list is more than 350 strong, and getting longer all the time. Luckily, only a dozen or two of those inventive varieties grace the bakery case each day, condensing the choices to include their four classics?red velvet, wedding day white, classic vanilla, and classic chocolate?plus a smattering of unique flavors that might include champagne and raspberries, gingerbread latte, or salted watermelon. For those who can?t get enough of these sweet creations, cupcake towers let you bring home a mountain of sugary bliss, and in-store parties let you decorate cupcakes with your favorite toppings or the name of your least favorite dentist.
Inside HoneyBaked Ham, chefs uphold the same traditions that Harry J. Hoenselaar created more than 40 years ago. Back then, he chose individual hams, cured them in his secret marinade, and smoked them over hardwood chips before offsetting the earthy flavor with a crisp, sweet glaze. To this day, the staff makes the signature bone-in hams one at a time and glazes them in the shop.
To go with the meats, the kitchen whips up classic side dishes and desserts, such as the sweet-potato souffl?. For less formal feasting, party trays and packed lunch boxes fuel business meetings, backyard grad parties, and lengthy end-zone celebrations.
Looking at Marty Velasco now, it's hard to believe that he once struggled with his weight. Though Marty may be muscular and slim today, his history gives him a unique understanding of the hardships faced by those trying to lose weight. This understanding fuels his determination to help others at his private fitness studio.
At Fitness Edge, Marty and his staff help clients on the road to health and weight loss with group fitness classes and personal training. Within the colorful studio, or at outdoor locations in Rocky River Park, the staff leads students of all fitness levels in full-body circuit-training workouts. Sessions might call upon strength-building kettlebell exercises, natural bodyweight resistance, and cardiovascular conditioning exercises, and trainers help their students continue the work at home with nutritional counseling and meal plans. The staff is committed to creating a friendly environment for their students; they welcome all newcomers with an orientation, where they demonstrate what to expect from the program, tour the facility, and ritualistically hand crochet students' names into their sweatbands.
