Blue Water Divers Swim School's experienced team of aquatic educators leads beginner and advanced swim programs for all ages, including adults. Beginner swimming sessions school no more than four burgeoning paddlers per class, as parents, tots, and tadpoles learn primary swimming skills, floating methodologies, and tips for eating crackers underwater in heated, indoor pools. Those with well-honed paddle skills may anchor themselves to one of four different courses, all limited to five students per class. The more advanced courses require students to swim the width of the pool using a variety of strokes without stopping. The Sharks class teaches techniques such as the butterfly stroke, methods for increasing endurance, and the consequences of splashing the wrong person.

It's not uncommon for adults to dread going to the dentist, and it's often because of a difficult experience they had as a child. Dr. Scott Peters focuses his practice on keeping kids and patients with special needs comfortable to make sure they are encouraged to maintain good dental hygiene. He draws from experience in pediatric dentistry and behavioral management, skills he learned at the Boston University School of Dental Medicine and Montefiore Medical Center. He and his staff aim to make the dental office a welcoming, safe place for all patients.

Dr. Peters can straighten teeth with Invisalign's transparent aligners, a more attractive alternative to traditional metal braces and industrial magnets. He can also fill in cavities; after that procedure, he lessens numbness in the lips and cheeks with OraVerse, which allows patients to talk and eat freely within 15 minutes, and offers laser dentistry. If desired, Dr. Peters can also save a child's stem cell-rich baby teeth for parents. If stored properly, these have tiny, life-giving cells that can help physicians treat ailments that may arise later in life, such as leukemia, diabetes, or multiple sclerosis.

Dr. Samuel Horowitz spent years performing every type of dental procedure before he made implantology his specialty. His focus so engrossed him that, before long, he had thousands of implant procedures under his belt and was appointed diplomate of the International Congress of Oral Implantologists. However, just as a supervillain never loses his commitment to turning the world into a five-trillion ton diamond, Dr. Horowitz never lost his commitment to standard dentistry. Along with implants, his practice employs their high-tech dental equipment to perform fillings, root canals, and extractions, as well as treat migraines, sleep apnea, and TMJ.
