Husband-and-wife dental team Drs. Jeanine and Jeffrey Gourdine—both South Carolina natives and graduates of the Medical University of South Carolina—hold the keys to a healthy, dazzling grin. At the helm of Smile Center of Knightsville, they enhance or entirely revamp smiles with an arsenal of advanced technology that includes digital imaging, laser dentistry, and intraoral cameras, enabling them to treat teeth to a wealth of general and cosmetic services. Before applying veneers or straightening teeth with clear braces, the dentists assess each patient’s oral health and explain the procedure. They’re also careful to explain what they’re doing during exams with children, helping each kid grasp the importance of fluoride and going over ways to clean teeth that don’t involve chewing a bar of soap before bed each night.

While playing college football, owner and head trainer Tony May studied business and fitness, building the strong foundation upon which Qikfit365 now operates. Through a combination of exercise and nutritional guidance, he and his staff of trainers teach clients how to shed pounds and tone muscle. When they aren't helping exercisers chisel façades or rehabilitate sinews, they offer sports-specific training for high-school football players, casual golfers, and competitive sitters.
