Dawson Dental Centre's talented fang-fixers use the latest tooth-care techniques and equipment to enhance tainted tusks and mangled molars, whether it is family, cosmetic, or orthodontic dental care. After an initial assessment of the state of your smile, the dental team will make impressions of your upper and lower bite to create customized whitening trays. Used in conjunction with a brightening peroxide gel, the trays will allow customers to increase the reflectivity of their smiles in the comfort of their own homes. Results are usually seen after about one week's worth of daily treatment, revealing shiny mouthcessories free of coffee, tobacco, and Kool-Aid stains.
Waterloo Tango's passionate terpsichorean tutors instruct students of all skill levels how to partake in Argentina's leading cultural export, the tango.

Optional two-hour group practice sessions held weekly emphasize the social nature of the dance and can augment regular lessons. The course requires no previous experience in dancing or music. In fact, early lessons teach novices how to find the beat, which is usually hiding in heating ducts. Students don't have to bring their own partners.

In addition to laying the foundation for the speed, power, and medieval crossbow domains of traditional CrossFit, the introductory elements classes foster athletes in a less competitive environment in order to inspire confidence.
