With hundreds of locations across the country, Right Dental Group represents a collection of oral-healthcare professionals who deliver a variety of quality dental services. The collective places an emphasis on relationship building—meaning patients can confess their most egregious toffee-apple trespasses while receiving a teeth scrubbing delivered with precision and understanding. Each of the dentists is prescreened for a consistent record of excellence and the ability to efficiently locate a cavity in a toothstack. A skilled doctor and staff will skillfully probe forgotten mouth corners, eradicating tartar and expunging plaque from bacterial lairs. The included x-rays will help uncover any oral problem areas that cannot be seen with the shamelessly naked eye. After treatment, clients will be privy to tips that explain the proper brushing and flossing techniques to ward off gum disease and tooth loss, ensuring tongue-stoppers remain firmly rooted to the rest of the skeletal system.
With more than 700 locations, Jamba Juice proves to the masses that nutrition can be speedy and delicious. Since the beginning, the company’s product philosophy has revolved around choosing whole fruits and other natural ingredients over artificial flavorings, sweeteners, and preservatives. The menu is completely free of high-fructose corn syrup and trans fats, and it offers additional accommodations for vegan and gluten-free diets.
This naturalistic approach is fully realized in Jamba Juice's selection of smoothies. Made with 100% fruit juice, sherbet, and frozen yogurt, the frosty delights range from all-fruit smoothies such as peach perfection and strawberry whirl to more indulgent creamy treats, including peanut butter moo'd, an enticing blend of peanut butter, bananas, nonfat vanilla frozen yogurt, and milk chocolate.
For those with heartier appetites, steel-cut oats steep in soymilk before being enhanced with toppings such as apples, cinnamon, and brown-sugar crumble.

When you picture the judges of an international beauty pageant, you likely think of media moguls, celebrities, star athletes, or former beauty queens. The idea of a cosmetic dentist would never cross your mind, and yet that is exactly what international beauty-pageant judge Dr. Aalam Samsavar is.
As the official cosmetic dentist of the Mrs. Washington pageant, a member of numerous accreditation societies, and the head of International Institute of Cosmetic Dentistry, Dr. Samsavar is well equipped to judge a beautiful smile. He also wants to help everyone have one, which is why he pairs complimentary smile consultations with cosmetic and concept dental services and improves grins with veneers, Invisalign, and Smilercise—a series of exercises he invented that tones face and jaw muscles without requiring tongues to lift barbells. At his dental spa, guests can even feel like pampered beauty queens as they sip on herbal tea, recline in massage chairs, watch movies, and wear a crown. Dr. Samsavar ensures that each patient is well taken care of with these amenities and a policy of admitting only one patient to his office at a time.
Clients at Hand & Stone Massage and Facial Spa receive a completely customized service, down to the lighting and sound levels that transform treatment rooms into relaxing oases. As they tuck into the clean linens that bedeck heated tables, they divulge their chronic aches to massage therapists or their skin concerns to aestheticians. With each visit, the staff updates a client’s regimen so that a treatment remains effective in soothing aches or clean pores that are terrified of extractions.

Dr. Knudson also showcases his talents at Beautiful Dentistry, undertaking cosmetic repair projects ranging from teeth whitening and veneers to implants and dentures.
