Wading through indoor heated pools, the instructors at British Swim School teach independent swimming skills to learners aged 3 months and older, adhering to a curriculum devised by British national swimmer Rita Goldberg. The 30-minute one-on-one sessions and small-group lessons, containing six or fewer swimmers, elucidate essential techniques for water safety and the importance of speaking fluent manatee. Swimboree (ages 3 months–3 years with parents) and Young Minnows sessions (ages 1–3 years without parents) teach wee swimmers basic water-survival skills, such as the back float. Turtle One and Turtle Two classes focus on freestyle, backstroke, and breaststroke maneuvers, honing more structured swimming skills in older kiddos. British Swim School's Shark courses enhance stamina and speed and teach even more demanding strokes, such as the butterfly and little-known mountain-goat flail. Certain British Swim School classes require parents to participate in the water or to supervise from the pool deck, and adults-only lessons allow grown-ups to refine their own abilities without the supervision of a toddler.
After graduating from dental school, Dr. Zack Zaibak didn’t open up his own office. Instead, he earned his certification in forensic dentistry from the U.S. Navy and completed a residency in advanced dentistry at Loyola Hospital. These experiences foretold a life of constant professional learning; though he now has an award-winning practice of his own, he completes nearly 100 hours of postgraduate training every year. His extensive knowledge has inspired Fox, ABC, WGN and Univision to feature the dentist on consumer-education segments. Dr. Zaibak is also the author of The Hidden Truth Behind Beautiful Smiles, published in 2011. In Dr. Zaibak's office near the Tinley Park Metra station, patients sip complimentary drinks while watching DVDs, listening to CDs, or reciting the alphabet in massage chairs fitted with neck pillows. While they relax, Dr. Zaibak and his highly trained staff make over their smiles with advanced cosmetic treatments, including Invisalign, whitening, and drill-free veneers.
