Subject to the whims of the Tar River, The River Golf and Country Club's 18-hole course guides players down a winding path with few straightaway holes within its 6,391-yard length. Ten of the holes feature a dogleg turn of some degree, from the slight bend to the left in the fairway of the 1st hole to the violent rightward turn at the 15th hole. These, coupled with the four par 3s, challenge players to swing powerfully without overshooting their targets or accidentally landing their balls in a stork's nest. Additionally, the river itself comes prominently into play on several holes, calling for fairway hops on the 1st and 10th holes and a dramatic tee shot over water on the par 3 11th.

Course at a Glance:

  • 18-hole, par 72 course
  • Total length of 6,391 yards from the back tees
  • Course rating of 71.1 from the back tees

The dental duo at Wake Forest Dental Arts, Drs. Craig Winkelmann and Lindsey Collins, thwarts oral maladies and beautifies smiles with a full gamut of restorative, general, and cosmetic dental services. A former electrical engineer, Dr. Craig rose through the ranks of dentistry at the University of Maryland, after which he was selected to serve as a dental ambassador of goodwill to Ireland. Dr. Lindsey’s travels have taken her from dental school at Louisiana State University to Atoyac, Mexico, where she administered dental services to underprivileged children and elders. Both doctors devote their passions for dentistry to their patients, developing treatment plans aligned with their expectations and zodiac signs and alleviating the anxiety of dental visits.

Dr. Robbie Smith and her experienced team of dental assistants refurbish teeth to their original effulgence in the relaxing atmosphere of a cozy dental office. In-office teeth-whitening trays bleach the surface layers of each tooth's enamel to whiten choppers besmirched from tobacco use, coffee drinking, or painted-nail biting. Alternatively, the in-office Zoom! whitening treatment coats teeth in a hydrogen-peroxide gel that activates under the light beams of a specially designed lamp to disperse tooth stains and brighten smiles up to eight shades. Dr. Smith inspects and probes the mouth for potential problems during the dental exam, and a set of digital x-rays sheds light on any tooth decay or Narnia portals that may be occurring inside the mouth.

The innovative Invisalign treatment corrects alignment with a system of clear, removable acrylic aligners. Using 3-D digital imaging and a certified Invisalign lab, the skilled artisans of dentition make custom aligners for each patient’s mouth. The technique straightens teeth in about 6–18 months for a faster turnaround time than traditional braces or elaborate invisibility cloaks. Patients can remove the devices for meals, brushing, or special events like tooth prom, though most people will never see the translucent devices. Supremia recommends the treatment for adults and older teens who have already had braces, or even for purely cosmetic purposes.

?Routine is the enemy??a statement Scott and Laura Garrison proclaim with the seriousness of a war declaration. They believe that exercise all too often makes a shift from ritual to routine, losing all spontaneity and excitement, as well as inspiring many people to quit before they can reap the benefits of their hard work. At CrossFit Confortare, the duo work to diminish the number of quitters by leading a boredom-crushing, ever-changing workout of the day, as well as by fostering a community where students challenge one another in friendly competition and hold themselves accountable to their own goals. They structure their workouts around functional movements people use in their everyday lives, such as squatting to pick up loose change or performing knee lifts to punt their outgoing mail across town to the post office each morning. Workouts range from fundamental exercises, such as pushups and jump rope sets, to intense spurts of Olympic lifts and rope climbing. To supplement their physical instruction, the Garrisons also provide guidance on eating a nutritionally balanced diet.
