The massage therapists at Euphoric All Over Day Spa whisk their clients to quiet, comfortable rooms to perform about a half dozen massage modalities. Therapists can play soft music while rendering classic techniques such as Swedish and deep-tissue massages, or relaxing couples massages. The staff might also incorporate lotion or light oils, which lubricate the CD player so the soft music continues to play.
One may have to look around a while before finding a more advanced dental office than Exceptional Dental Family Dentistry. Behind the office’s cozy wooden floors, leather furniture, and walls strewn with sports memorabilia, an armament of diagnostic equipment and restorative techniques pulse between the hands of Dr. Darrell Bourg and his experienced associates. 3D imaging creates a full topography of mouths, giving the doctor the information necessary to replace missing teeth with dental implants that look and function naturally. At the cosmetic end, teeth whitening gently lifts out stains cause from coffee, smoking, and aging and tooth-colored composites replace conspicuous metal amalgams for fillings that are virtually invisible. Exceptional Dental Family Dentistry boasts associations that include Louisiana Dental Association, New Orleans Dental Association, BBB, The American Orthodontic Society, and American Academy of Implant Dentistry.
A thriving practice founded by two accomplished doctors, Devereux & Nguyen Orthodontics cleans and corrects carrot cutters using a comfortable and metal-less alternative to braces. The straightening process begins with a full exam, which maps out tonsil caves using x-ray cameras and impressionable teeth trays. A 3-D graphics program synthesizes this information into a detailed chomper chart, helping doctors design a finely tuned set of invisible fang shifters that can help erase mouth gaps and ease crowding.
A visit to the Harvey dental practice promises a friendly staff that will make you feel more at home than the unfriendly staff at your current home. After a visual examination of your teeth, a full cosmetic consultation with the friendly doctor will mimic 12th-grade visits to the guidance counselor with a chat about your pie-hole's potential. The doc will present you with a variety of available options to direct you on the right path toward a Daytime Emmy Award–winning smile. You'll be sent home with a week's worth of Nite White do-it-yourself teeth-whitening products to administer before bed for 5–7 nights. As you slumber, Nite White's mild solution of teeth-bleaching peroxides will labor like a camp of miniature Zambonis to scrub away food, coffee, tobacco, and syrup stains, leaving your smile embrightened and betwinkled.
In 1959, Robert Trent Jones Sr. completed work on Timberlane's 7100-yard, par-72 golf course near the west bank of the Mississippi, and it still stands as a friendly, challenging round in a pleasant, private setting. Mature oaks line the sides of each Bermuda-grass fairway, and in 2007, Timberlane re-surfaced its expansive greens with Tif Eagle turf, giving putts a new zip and helicopter pilots a new view. Before hitting the links, sharpen up your chipping, putting, pitching, pitch-shifting, and Super Bowl Shuffling on the all-grass practice range and putting green, or try the driving range nearby. When you're ready, hop in your provided golf cart to match wits with the labyrinthine course, which features four sets of tee areas per hole, 17 water hazards, 80 sand bunkers, and 13 mechanical yetis. If he's around, see if you can snag a tip from resident PGA pro Tim Brown, who was named by Golf Digest as the #1 Best Teacher in Louisiana in 2009.
