Manakin Sabot Family & Cosmetic Dentistry is overseen by the highly trained and certified gaze of Dentist Dr. Peter Murchie. The 60-minute teeth whitening process is available to restore the sheen dulled by caffeine, tobacco, and motorcycling through fields of mulberry trees, without resorting to the abrasive whitening substances offered in many dental offices. The simple, effective treatment uses the Opalescence Boost whitening system to blast away color and stains, without bothersome heat or ultraviolet rays of a cantankerous bubble machine. Instead of being hassled for the size of your canines by taking mouth molds, the Opalescence treatment uses a topical serum that is fortified with potassium nitrate and fluoride to boost cavity protection and complete the cycle of dental domination.

The Dude Ranch Pet Resort’s “next-generation facility” is the culmination of five years of research and consulting with pet-care professionals and dog owners. Situated on 47 acres of picturesque landscape—including fields, lakes, and forests—the resort eschews cinder blocks and chain-link fences for climate-controlled, stainless-steel villas that won’t attract mold or bacteria. At daycare, charges romp across 15,000 square feet of outdoor play yards that feature double trapdoors. Overnight guests bunk on platform beds in private suites or deluxe villas, surrounded by soothing background music and continuously filtered air. Cats, too, are welcome to rest in their own exclusive area replete with nail scratchers and catnip toys. While pets snooze, the staff remains on duty, walking the halls to ensure dogs are safe and not staying up too late telling ghost stories. The resort also offers grooming sessions and training classes that range from basic obedience to dog-show skills.
