Dr. Robert Stern takes satisfaction in straightening crooked smiles. He and Dr. Tanya Stavisky are backed by an experienced team, and they all work toward helping their patients achieve ideal oral health and maintain a preventive care regimen. The dentists can install Invisalign or conventional braces to straighten overcrowded or unevenly spaced teeth or correct strong over- or underbites. They also have experience treating conditions such as sleep apnea by designing mouthpieces that keep the throat from becoming blocked during sleep and make dreams about being a professional basketball player more realistic.
The licensed aestheticians at Cosmetic Skin Care Specialists perform their beauty work under the tutelage of Dr. Lyle M. Back, a renowned plastic surgeon. All treatments are performed with only the finest skin products, such as Avene, Obagi, and Neova. Renew your frontispiece with your choice of a salicylic or glycolic peel ($125). This treatment will exfoliate and tighten skin, motivating new cell production and shunning wrinkles for a more youthful appearance and attitude. Alternatively, a microdermabrasion treatment uses a non-wizarding, diamond-tipped wand to gently remove outdated skin layers, minimizing fine lines, scars, and age spots ($125). Both treatments come with a nourishing skin facial (an $85 value), a revitalizing mask that infuses thirsty, hallucinating visages with a fresh coat of moisture.
Cosmetic and implant dentists Drs. Gilbert, Andreassi, and Berger work hard not only to keep teeth healthy, but to create a warm, friendly environment where even nervous patients feel at ease. Dr. Gilbert's advanced training informs his dental-care techniques, and the former captain in the U.S. Army Dental Corp. specializes in periodontics, endodontics, oral surgery, and prosthetics. He and his co-dentists join forces with a smiling staff who help every treatment restore grins to their impeccable selves. Invisible braces, whitening, and veneers offer an alternative to wooden teeth and the kisses from woodpeckers that they invite.
Israeli Krav Maga teaches law enforcement officers, military trainees, and ordinary citizens to use combat skills originally developed for the Israeli defense forces and modified for civilian self-defense. Having trained under krav maga founder Imi Lichtenfeld, Grandmaster Haim Gidon now oversees the instructors he has trained and certified. Some of Gidon's instructors––who have military and law enforcement experience––have been featured in USA Today and on NBC, ABC, CBS and Fox News, and have even trained celebrities such as John Mayer, whose guitar has been known to pick fights with him. These faculty members teach krav maga with a focus on empowering students while helping them to develop awareness, and life-saving skills.

She and her staff impart the fine art to adults and kids, teaching the fundaments of ballet, jazz, and tap.
