Roland Barkau Memorial Golf Course offers golfers of all skill levels swing-testing challenges in the form of 18 championship-style holes. The par 71 course dons 6,513 yards of zoysia fairways, fescue roughs, bent-grass greens, and cart-powered course traversing. As different as day- and night-sun tanning, the first nine holes adventurously take golfers through tiger-free woods while the back nine contest clubs with links-style layouts. Each hole offers four tee options, ideal for varying skill levels or four-armed mutant-phenoms.
The skilled doctors of St. Louis Orthodontic Group straighten the gum bones of both children and adults with professional precision. During a comprehensive exam, a specialist pours over the inner workings of mandibles, combing mouth real estate for common problems such as crossbites, spacing, crowding, and irritating gangs of popcorn kernels. A round of x-rays and photos thoroughly captures the mouth's essence, ensuring treatment is best suited to each patient's individual needs. A teeth impression immortalizes the mouth's every curve without the discomfort of being cast in bronze, and readies chompers for their choice of braces including metal, clear, or Invisalign models, preparing cuspids for a comfortable corrective fit.
Dr. Hegyi and his staff of ocular experts use digital refraction technology to examine peepers and determine proper eyesight prescriptions. During 30-minute vision analyses ($92) optical examiners submit patients’ eyes to a series of eyesight tests, prompting them to read letters and identify members of the Partridge Family, before trained technicians dilate pupils to get behind-the-scenes access inside eyeball command centers. After studying the findings, digital phoropters bestow each patient with a nearly perfect prescription for lenses with secret powers that range from anti-reflective coatings to transitions that automatically darken when worn in sunlight to freeform HD lenses, which grant seers visual sharpness without distortion or purchase of an HD–compatible face. After attaining precise prescriptions, patients can apply a $175 store credit toward frames ($85–$325), including designer frames from Vera Wang, Armani, and Juicy Couture.

Once clients are comfortably ensconced in the dentist's chair, the oral exam begins. The resident toothsperts will check each individual incisor, cuspid, bicuspid, and molar for chips, cracks, staining, and loitering Minnesota Twins, ensuring that enamel bones are sound for biting, and gums and soft tissues will be inspected for any signs of periodontal disease. The x-ray battery exposes the roots and inner sanctums of oral stalagmites to reveal any soft spots, problem areas, or cavities. When your mouth checks out as mammalian and your teeth are cleared for takeoff, the professional teeth cleaning begins. An expert cleaning removes all the buildup and surface staining that regular brushing and flossing can't—hardened tartar, hard-to-reach plaque, and bacterial graffiti along the gum line.
