The dentists at North Aurora Dental Associates?Drs. Melissa Ledwidge, Ingy Nessim, and Irbad Chowdhury?unite around a simple philosophy: there's no quick replacement for preventive dental care. It's simply a lifelong process, one they facilitate with rigorous exams and oral cancer screenings. The dentists assist with any maladies preventative care fails to prevent, too. They tackle rogue cavities, for instance, with cutting-edge air abrasion so non-invasive, it rarely requires an anesthetic shot or a distracting Magic Eye puzzle. Meanwhile, they conquer deeper-seated decay with root canals, and their nightguards protect against unconscious teeth grinding. The dentists tend to the aesthetics of smiles, too, with cosmetic treatments such as light-activated Zoom! whitening.
The doctors at Hauser-Ross Eye Institute carry on the mission originally set forth by the husband-wife founders, Dr. Lynn Hauser and Dr. Neil Ross, more than 30 years ago. Though they draw on a range of technology that was unavailable three decades ago, they still work to treat all manner medical and aesthetic ocular issues. In their surgical center, they work over precise beams, performing LASIK procedures. Wielding products such as Latisse and Botox, they perform eyelid lifts, medical-grade facials, and other cosmetic treatments. The team works to stay on top of the latest advances and technology to beautify eyes and make them good for something other than winking at trial juries.

Since the first fairway drive in 1923, players at Sycamore Golf Club have sent their golf balls cruising down tree-lined chutes blanketed in pristine bentgrass in effort to conquer the course par of 71. The 18-hole course straddles the Kishwaukee River and extends to a total length of 5,817 yards from the back tees and 5,302 yards from the front tees.
