The friendly, expert staff of Texas Grins Family Dentistry employs top-of-the-line dental equipment within a comfortable, home-like office, clearing grills of grime and rendering smiles swoon-worthy. The dental exam covers heads, necks, jaws, mouths, teeth, gums, and more, and the thorough foraging works to uncover cavities, oral cancer, or penny-stock tips within your mouth. Meanwhile, x-rays give the staff of oral authorities a comprehensive snapshot before the cleaning turns your mouth into a manor fit for the mightiest of molars. Whitening services involve a custom-tray fit for the ivories, followed by at-home treatments that can potentially render them up to nine shades whiter.

After four years in the US Army's 3/504 Airborne Parachute Infantry regiment, Tommy Taylor continued serving his country and community by joining local law enforcement. Seeing firsthand how essential it is for officers to possess tactical skills to protect themselves and those around them, he founded Texas Tactical in 1997. At his facility, the now-retired patrol officer, alongside training manager Gary Fitzgerald, teaches fellow police and members of the military basic and advanced skills such as moving while shooting and close-quarter combat.
For civilians, he imparts more-basic knowledge such as firearm safety and upkeep, reloading, and, in a low-light shooting class, how to fire a weapon while holding a flashlight in one hand.
Until brain transplant surgery becomes a reality, humans are stuck in the bodies they're born in. The trainers at The Body Shop—led by owner Elizabeth Carnley—aim to help clients make the most of that situation. Their women-only classes are designed to build muscle, increase endurance, and burn fat. They set hearts racing in high-energy Zumba dance classes, or build muscular power with boot camps that incorporate heavy dumbbell lifting, one of Elizabeth's favorite exercises. To keep their students motivated, they provide gentle verbal encouragement and festoon the walls with posters with phrases such as "Sweat is Fat Crying" or "Your Brain is Not a Negative Integer." To make their classes as convenient as possible, the studio hosts a first-come, first-served childcare service, capable of looking after up to ten tykes at a time.
