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.
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.

A European facial or an IPL photorejuvenation treatment can fade the signs of aging, and microdermabrasion sessions release miniature tornados of crystals across the skin to sweep away dead skin cells, hyperpigmentation, and pores packed with Wicked Witches of the West riding their bikes in circles.
The reformer classes at Body by Pilates rely on the BackSmart techniques pioneered by author Dr. Adam Weiss. During the 50-minute, full-body workouts, instructors coach students through a series of cardio and muscle-sculpting exercises that burn fat and build strength more intensively than jogging through a spinach buffet. Up to 10 students stretch hips, glutes, and abdomens on the versatile reformer machine, which uses resistance to alternately lengthen and contract muscles while reducing the risk of injury. The specialized classes cultivate improved posture, core strength, and flexibility, leaving students invigorated and limber enough to happily crabwalk home.
