Husband-and-wife dental duo Drs. Joo and Min Kwon lead a team of dental professionals spanning three offices: Smile Dental Design, Westlake Dental Center, and Ashley Family Dental. The dentists tackle all facets of tooth care, from installing implants and walrus tusks to straightening teeth and brightening smiles. They even work outside mouth lines to inject Botox and Juvederm wrinkle fighters into faces.
Each office values patient safety and comfort, and is equipped with some of the industry’s most up-to-date equipment, such as laser cavity detection, low-radiation digital x-rays, and high-speed electric hand pieces that reduce the noise of traditional hand pieces by 40%. A sterilization system surpasses OSHA standards for uncompromisingly clean tools, and distilled water ensures mouths stay free of contaminants and fish.
With founder and artistic director Jorge Niedas at the helm, the professional dancers at Tango 21 teach bipeds how to execute skillful ballet and tango moves. A Buenos Aires native, Niedas picked up tango in local dance clubs before moving to Chicago as a ballet dancer with the Lyric Opera. Now, he and his team draw upon that dual background to infuse tango's twirls, steps, and dips with classical grace. Burgeoning ballet and tango dancers can pirouette in private classes, take group classes, or attend a drop-in class, as long as they drop in with grace.

Kids and adults can train in Brazilian jujitsu, a style of self-defense that teaches them how to immobilize an attacker and escape from a situation. To complement martial-arts training, the gym offers fitness classes such as cardio boxing, as well as yoga.
Licensed staff members at Aristo Dental target fine lines and wrinkles with muscle-relaxing Botox injections. With each tiny injection, the Botox concoction works to curtail movement in furrow-prone muscles to smooth crinkling eye areas, foreheads, and nasal lines better than rolling down the windows in a launching space shuttle. Results usually begin to take hold within one to two hours after treatment and achieve full effects within 30 days, leaving faces smoother and more youthful for up to four months. As the treatment requires no downtime, patients can return to working, socializing, and taunting shar pei puppies the same day.
