Dr. Warren Mitchell and Avenue Dental Care’s tooth-tending team keep pearly whites clean, bright, and healthy with services ranging from routine dental exams to whitening procedures. Zoom! persuades smiles to shed stain-jackets of tea, coffee, wine, and cola over the course of 90 minutes, revealing enamel that's an average of eight shades lighter. The tooth-whitening tool of ABC's Extreme Makeover crew, Zoom! treatments are performed by a licensed dental professional who will bleach chompers with hydrogen peroxide, creating a safe, long-lasting glow. Avenue Dental Care tailors Zoom! procedures to each patient's specific goals, whether it's bringing a twinkling grin to a high school reunion or wowing Grandma with a mouthful of opalescent tooth-lasers.
Gift your gumcessories a Zoom! whitening treatment designed for safe, immediate shade-shifting results of eight shades, on average. This quick, pain-free process involves the application of a scientifically formulated light-activated gel that activates under a specially designed Zoom! light. Feel free to kick back and relax as the activated gel makes its way into your teeth, targeting discolorations and transforming smiles from sparkling to most sparklingist. Patients leave the office fully armed with instant brightness that can last for years to come. Much like building a cubicle, the entire Zoom! process takes place in-office, which means you'll be exempt from additional take-home whitening regiments. However, to remain at the pinnacle of pearliness, five out of five dentists recommend maintaining proper care.

Though the process of becoming a yoga teacher involves memorizing sanskrit and learning the roots and traditions of yoga, the best teachers manage to insert their own personality and teaching style into their classes. So when Michelle Ann Thielen founded Northwest Yoga Academy, she designed a teacher training that aims to help budding instructors find that sweet spot between honoring the long tradition of yoga and empowering teachers to develop their own teaching style. The school's instructors lead students through the 200- and 500-hour certification courses, as well as shorter workshops that focus on building solid foundations for a deeper yoga practice. But no matter the training, Michelle and her team work to make sure students find wholeness in mind, body, soul, and spirit.
