Dr. Steven W. Haywood’s proficiency at transforming smiles earned him a spot on ABC2’s Extreme Makeover Special, and his staff strives to recreate the calming atmosphere of a spa in their office. In cosmetic dentistry treatments, Dr. Haywood fills gaps between teeth with porcelain veneers and straightens smiles with Invisalign and orthodontia. Lasers whiten teeth in fewer than two hours or help the doctor sniff out cavities without calling in a specialized bloodhound to follow the scent of decay through your mouth. An intraoral video camera sends mouth-views to a TV screen, letting both doctor and patient share the same view of each tooth.

Regal Dance Clubs's nimble instructors teach Fred Astaires of all skill levels how to move gracefully in more than 15 styles of dance. During 50-minute private lessons, dancers navigate the 3,100-square-foot ballroom with elegant dancing staples including bolero, foxtrot, samba, and the hokey pokey blindfolded. Since private classes are one-on-one, participants can request in-depth training on a particular style of dance or learn as many techniques as they like in their allotted time. Newly seasoned students twirl into three levels of group classes—Guest, Social Ease, or Bronze—armed with the know-how necessary to move and shake with their group mates. Upon completing dual dance lessons, toe tappers can showcase skills on the springs of the unobstructed dance floor during Friday-night dancing parties, which feature songs from all eras and genres to please even the pickiest time-traveler-dance partner.

During 90-minute classes in the studio, heat curls around the yogis who glisten with sweat as instructors guide them through a sequence of 26 postures. Students of all experience levels bend and stretch in the same class, with instructors offering adjustments to make the postures more or less challenging. The staff at Bikram Yoga York think everyone can benefit from the power of Bikram, which is why they welcome beginners with open arms and even provide an FAQ page just for them.

Helmed by Dr. Nikhilesh Agarwal, The Vein Center of Pennsylvania treats spidery blood-carriers with vein-withering sclerotherapy. The 25-minute visits start with a comprehensive exam to determine whether problematic veins are spider, varicose, or coolant tubes from half-finished cyborg transformations. A battery of sclerotherapy injections tests which chemicals are the safest for fighting veins, before Dr. Agarwal injects the winning solution into doomed veins, causing them to collapse and disappear. Treatments require little to no downtime, allowing patients to quickly return to busy work schedules or constant backyard stakeouts to catch Amelia Earhart stealing the lawn flamingos. This is an introductory offer, complete treatment may require 4 to 6 additional sessions.

The Athletic Club of York, co-owned by a national collegiate-racquetball champion and an AFAA certified personal trainer, ensures a friendly, laid-back atmosphere with a down-to-earth staff that strives to remember each visitor by name. The 26,000-square-foot gym unfurls enough elbow space for exercisers to wrestle with strength and cardio equipment before overcoming post-workout soreness with services such as massage therapy. The gym's communal vibe also fosters the positive tone of group fitness classes, during which feet master Zumba steps or kickboxing strikes in an aerobic studio. Guests can plunge into the indoor lap pool for self-guided strokes, aquatic programs, or swimming lessons, while children break down and rapidly reassemble slingshots at a Kidz Fit Club boot camp.
