Founded in 1972 as a gymnastics club, TWIGS Kids now resides in a sprawling 20,000-square-foot facility staffed by enthused staffers. The gym’s name, which stands for True Winners in God’s Service, reflects its mission of providing gymnastics, swimming, and cheer activities and instruction for kids ages 3–18 in a Christian environment. Cheer and gymnastics lessons simultaneously bolster students’ flexibility, coordination, confidence, and ability to best invisible friends in monkey-bar competitions. Amid the heated waters of Dolphin Cove, teachers and pupils soak their feet while lifting floating barbells and riding noodle floats during swimming lessons. An in-house café welcomes visitors to recharge their empty fuel tanks with refreshing snacks, while a gift shop displays colorful gym attire from designers including GK Elite Sportswear and Melody Leotards.
Mouthbone specialist Dr. Ravinder Gampa oversees a friendly staff of teeth technician that guides visitors to enamel excellence through routine- and cosmetic-dental services. During the comprehensive oral exam, Dr. Gampa surveys teeth, gums, and soft tissue for signs of oral antagonists, before charting periodontal locations into a connect-the-dots puzzle that forms an elephant tusk. To further acquaint himself with the client's teeth, the dentist may suggest panoramic x-rays to evaluate how the upper and lower teeth are meeting, or bitewing x-rays to reveal potential tooth decay. The four-step Zoom! treatment dedicates 15-minutes to whitening teeth up to eight shades, the opposite reaction that a snowflake experiences when fluttering into a tar pit. After isolating teeth from gums, a dental doyen coats each food destroyer in a light-activated proprietary gel that breaks up stains and discoloration. West Carrollton Dental recommends three treatments for the best results, and clients leave with custom-fit trays to continue the whitening process at home.
