At Smile Center of Los Gatos, Dr. Ginnylee Roderick personally polishes grins with an expansive slate of general dentistry and cosmetic services, drawing upon more than 16 years of experience. Muted spotlights illuminate a warm, contemporary waiting area with a bubbling aquarium that entertains patients and then lulls them to sleep.

Painless teeth-whitening sessions can take place at home or in the office, and Dr. Roderick also checks in on gums with periodontal services, sometimes giving patients eggs fresh from her own chicken coop to hard-boil and then test-drive newly cleaned chompers.

Every day at more than 770 locations, Jamba Juice proves that good nutrition can be both convenient and delicious. Since the beginning, the company has based its philosophy on choosing whole fruits and all-natural ingredients over artificial flavorings and preservatives.

Whole fruits and veggies can be blended into an extensive menu of great-tasting smoothies and freshly squeezed juices. But Jamba Juice?s commitment to keeping healthy eating simple informs its solid-food options, too. Customers can kick-start their morning with a steaming bowl of slow-cooked, steel-cut oatmeal, or stay energized throughout the day with six varieties of Energy Bowls: nutrient-rich blends of whole fruit, Greek yogurt or soy milk, and an assortment of dry toppings and fresh fruits.
In addition to nourishing and energizing the human body, Jamba Juice fights childhood obesity by sponsoring Team Up for a Healthy America. The initiative encourages fans to join the Team Up community of celebrities, athletes and other leaders committed to getting kids active?which they can do by visiting the main Jamba Juice website.
