FDA-registered Million Dollar Smile restores whiteness to shop-worn smiles during tandem treatments with a dental-grade carbamide-peroxide formula and select wavelengths of LED lights. Using specially designed mouth trays, treatments neutralize discoloration on both the upper and lower teeth. The 16% concentration of hydrogen-peroxide based whitening solution works its whitening magic free of gluten, fluoride, or alcohol, and the shortened exposure to LED lights lightens teeth without softening enamel or disrupting molars’ circadian rhythms.

At Instinct Fitness, instructors certified in everything from Russian kettlebell to TRX training thrust students into three tiers of calorie-blazing classes designed to build functional strength. Owners Justin and Jason emphasize safety, proper form, and a healthy distance from lions as students work through functional movements using heavy ropes, kettlebells, and TRX suspension apparatuses. Students can opt for beginner classes or scale up the pace and energy and still improve form during intermediate classes. Only accessible after a fitness assessment, advanced classes push students in a no-holds-barred environment, increasing the complexity of movements and intensity of the heavy-rope double-dutch competitions. Saturdays host a boot camp in which participants can vary their standard workouts and find new challenges.
