Surrounded by craggy peaks, three men in bright-red helmets stand in the midst of wilderness, surveying the mountains around them as their group of hikers break for a snack on the rocky ground. This interface with the majesty of nature is all in a day's work for this trio of adventurers—Paul Mangasarian and Jakob and Daniel Laggner. Still, their passion for open-air exploration grows with each expedition they lead. Paul, Jakob, and Daniel cofounded Treks and Tracks with the dream of orchestrating excursions into nature that combine ancient means of travel—such as sailing, horseback riding, and hitchhiking on a centaur—with modern sports ranging from surfing to rock climbing. Though they focus on introducing novice outdoorsfolk to unspoiled wilderness around the world, Treks and Tracks' cofounders also strive to leave the awe-inspiring surroundings they visit as pristine as they found them by rigorously upholding practices of environmental stewardship on each expedition.

During a comprehensive dental exam at James D. Kim DDS Family Dentistry, Dr. Kim and his smile-staff x-ray face caverns to reveal any hidden fang, gum, and bone problems and then mine the mouth-stone area in search of problems such as tooth decay, gum disease, and constantly cursing tongues. After the exam, cuspid-cleaners bathe tusks in a flurry of foam and floss before Dr. Kim checks teeth one last time. Alternatively, patients who wish to brighten their mouth chiclets can opt for a take-home bleaching kit. Dr. Kim customizes the kit by taking an impression of the patient’s mouthscape. He then constructs a snug-fitting tray that holds a professional-grade whitening gel strong enough remove stains from coffee, tea, and squid-ink smoothies, rendering choppers up to eight shades whiter.
