Goldman Family Dental's office has been helping patients for more than 30 years with everything from esthetic dentistry to one-visit Cerec porcelain restorations. In addition, dentist Dr. Bruce Goldman recently welcomed Dr. Zack Goldman, Dr. Bruce's son, in 2011. What Dr. Zack describes as a "family-like atmosphere," is characterized not by the duo's kinship but by their relationship with patients, whose thank-you notes and gifts are cherished by the entire staff. To exist as a truly "warm and patient-centered environment," the dentists nurture friendships with patients, provide their cell-phone numbers for 24/7 emergency assistance, and emphasize esthetic dentistry and comfort.
With 160 driving range tees, 72 miniature golf holes, and 16 batting cages spread across its three locations, Golf Country provides ample opportunity for visitors to hone all aspects of their swings. Each driving range features overhead lights for practicing after the sun goes down for the evening, as well as a number of covered, heated tees that allow for practice when the sun goes down forever. The Easton and Saugus locations offer one 18-hole miniature golf course apiece, while the Middleton location showcases two courses. Nicknamed the Millpond Course and the Stone Bridge Course, Middleton’s miniature tracks meander through large flower beds, flowering trees, and ample water features.
Dr. Greg Rosenblatt has been helping his clients achieve healthy, beautiful teeth for more than 17 years. At Saugus Smiles, he and his friendly, experienced team offer family and cosmetic dental services, ranging from exams and checkups to crowns, dentures, and tooth implants. As an added convenience to customers, the office offers late night and early morning appointments to make it easy for patients to schedule visits around work and school, and the staff is also able to converse or swap dentistry-related jokes with patients in several languages, including Spanish and Thai.
Started in 1961 by Dr. Stanley Pearle, this nationally recognized and trusted eye-care center now operates in nearly 800 company and franchise locations nationwide. The master visionaries at Pearle are well-trained in assisting all bespectacled beings, from casual librarians to picky, temperamental Cyclopes. They'll help navigate a nearly endless array of sight-enhancing options: house lines of simple, durable frames and lenses, designer frames from Versace and DKNY, prescription Ray-Ban shades, and contact lenses to suit the chemistry of even sensitive sets of eyes.
One size doesn’t fit all at FrantzWorld Gym. Rather than going it alone, exercisers join forces with trainers who draw up personalized workout plans tailored to each client’s envisioned results. They also lay out nutritional goals that facilitate bodily changes, such as dead-lifting each bushel of apples before you place them in your grocery cart.
To help women achieve their fitness goals, the certified personal trainers at Get In Shape For Women focus on four areas: weight training, cardio training, nutrition, and accountability. In small group sessions, trainers modify exercises to suit up to four ladies' fitness levels, beginning by calibrating strength-training sessions—such as free weights, lunges, and squats—to each client's abilities while still ensuring they are challenging themselves. Then comes high-intensity cardio interval-training sessions in which trainers encourage exercisers to achieve optimal results on the treadmill or elliptical.
The trainers supplement the group workouts with nutritional planning centered around the concept of eating six small, balanced meals six days a week. They set aside the seventh day as a "free day" for a bit of indulgence, be it eating a favorite sweet or lusting openly after bacon. To hold their women accountable, trainers talk nutrition on the floor during scheduled appointments, and the ladies' progress toward reaching their goals is measured by trainers each week.
