With hundreds of locations across the country, Right Dental Group represents a collection of oral-healthcare professionals who deliver a variety of quality dental services. The collective places an emphasis on relationship building—meaning patients can confess their most egregious toffee-apple trespasses while receiving a teeth scrubbing delivered with precision and understanding. Each of the dentists is prescreened for a consistent record of excellence and the ability to efficiently locate a cavity in a toothstack. A skilled doctor and staff will skillfully probe forgotten mouth corners, eradicating tartar and expunging plaque from bacterial lairs. The included x-rays will help uncover any oral problem areas that cannot be seen with the shamelessly naked eye. After treatment, clients will be privy to tips that explain the proper brushing and flossing techniques to ward off gum disease and tooth loss, ensuring tongue-stoppers remain firmly rooted to the rest of the skeletal system.
Dr. Khan earned a degree in dental surgery from the University of Michigan before opening Dental Arts Family and Cosmetic Dentistry, and she continues to learn to this day via continuing-education courses. These classes help her stay abreast of the latest dental techniques, which she pairs with of-the-moment technology. Her facility’s equipment ranges from intraoral cameras and cosmetic imaging to digital x-rays, which uncover tooth decay and other ailments dentists can’t detect even when staring through a dozen magnifying lenses strapped together with duct tape.
Dr. Khan and her staff use this arsenal of techniques and technology to deliver comprehensive dental care. Exams and x-rays help ward off periodontal disease and root-canal-mandating tooth decay, and cosmetic treatments can straighten smiles and prevent patients from having to adjust their own teeth by always walking around with their heads slightly tilted.
Thirty years ago, a mother, a son, and his wife joined forces to create their own barbecue restaurant, starting with family-inspired, made-from-scratch recipes. The formula proved to be a success, and although Woody?s Bar-B-Q is now under new ownership and management, they still dish up the same quality eats from locations in six states. The newly remodeled restaurant?s defining secret sauce decorates baby back ribs, pulled pork sandwiches, and roasted half-chickens.
At his self-named eye and laser institute, Dr. John Vassallo puts his extensive training as a surgeon into practice. His specialties include eye plastic and muscle surgery, lens implants, laser surgery, and LASIK, a quick laser procedure that restores patients’ once-clear vision. This is not to say that Dr. Vassallo doesn’t provide preventative care, however; he also performs eye exams and glasses and contact-lens fittings.
The needles of pine trees brush together softly in the forests that line St. Johns Golf & Country Club, mimicking the bated breath of golfers as they wait for a ball to fall on the bunker-speckled 18th hole. The undulating green caps the 7,250-yard Clyde Johnston-designed course, where golfers unleash their swings from one of five tee distances. The course has served as host of the PGA Tour Q-School for five consecutive years, and a practice facility with a 10,000-square-foot putting green and double-sided driving range allows golfers to work on their grip or stop yelling a childhood secret every time they swing the club. Chatter and the sound of clicking margarita glasses drift down to the course from a restaurant with views of the 9th and 18th holes, and a banquet hall hosts wedding receptions and other gatherings.
