The physician assistants at Express Lane Urgent Care understand that sometimes the ER experience can be just as stressful as the offending injury or illness itself. It was with this in mind that they created their patient-driven practice to accomplish everything from treating allergies to testing for pregnancy. Yet despite typically seeing patients within 15 minutes, the staff never cuts corners when it comes to the quality of treatment, taking the time to adequately address any and all concerns associated with an illness or injury.
While many children and teens spend time deciding what they want to be when they grow up, Dr. Jeffrey Rice knew immediately. His father and grandfather were both dentists, and today he continues the lineage in an office that practices the full range of dentistry. He partners with three other dentists to form a qualified quartet that combines their specialties in implantology, endodontics, and cosmetic dentistry to restore the appearance, structure, and function of teeth.
The team emphasizes high-quality dentistry, and they demonstrate that commitment with treatments that are designed to last a long time. Their dental implants can look like and function as natural teeth for up to 20 years, thanks to their independence from neighboring teeth and the US Constitution’s lack of term limits for teeth. They also treat clients with amalgam and gold fillings that keep teeth chewing for more than 20 years, and their composite resin fillings give tooth holes 10-year reprieves while blending in with the rest of the tooth.
Patients at Gill Dental Group have the unique privilege of having their teeth looked after by a movie director. When he's not working on independent films, Dr. Param Gill makes sure teeth are camera ready by preventing cavities and improving smiles with cosmetic treatments such as Invisalign and dental implants.
He founded Gill Dental Group, which now boasts multiple locations, alongside Dr. Lavanya Gill, a dental expert who has written more than 50 dentistry articles for local newspapers. If necessary the Gills can administer sedation or play a CD of Morgan Freeman singing whale songs to relax patients during dental treatments.
Since 1978, Brenda Athletic Clubs has stood out from other gyms for its staff?s focus on offering all the amenities of a modern fitness facility while still fostering an inviting atmosphere. Its founder, Al Brenda, believed in fitness programs for all age groups, a mantra that the club continues today with youth fitness programs, including basketball clinics and yoga lessons, as well as a SilverSneakers fitness program for seniors. In addition to tennis, swimming, and standard strength and cardio equipment, the fitness centers supply its members with an ample amount of group classes including cycling, Zumba, and kickboxing.
Tina Kelly and Diane Flores, sisters and founders of Venus Pole Fitness, have always preferred doing things together. Throughout their adult years, they attended dance classes and boot camps, constantly in search of an exercise regime that was not only fun but effective. When they discovered pole-dance fitness, they instantly loved it and quickly purchased a pole, stage, and DJ booth packed with pop-music CDs. Their purchases led to the eventual creation of Venus Pole Fitness, where the certified duo teach ladies of all fitness levels and friction coefficients how to spice up their exercise regime and build their confidence through hip swivels and spins.
