Headed by veteran plastic surgeon Dr. Jason Lichten, Central Ohio Plastic Surgery beautifies bodies with a suite of advanced cosmetic procedures. Botox treatments use injections of purified protein to paralyze wrinkle-causing muscles, smoothing out the epidermal furrows that can often obscure detailed facial tattoos. All procedures are performed by a board-certified plastic surgeon fully trained in administering injections safely and professionally. Appointments take about half an hour, and the injections themselves take only five minutes, allowing patients to defeat unwanted wrinkles during a lunch break or the boring part of a favorite feature-length infomercial. Full effects are usually apparent after two weeks, and the results last up to four to six months.
The friendly staff and doctor at Central Ohio Dental Spa know that the most important aspects of a dental office include the patient's comfort and peace of mind, along with experience and top-notch technology. Dr. Nguyen meets and exceeds the requisite experience, with a DDS earned from The Ohio State University in 2000, countless hours of postdoctoral training, and membership in the American Dental Association. His office is stacked with the latest technology, from digital x-ray machines and 360-degree panorex imaging to electric hand pieces and robotic tooth fairies. Adding an extra layer of comfort to each visit, a full-time massage therapist performs complimentary hand massages during treatments and can be booked for a complete session to take place before or after dental procedures in a private therapy room. Neck pillows also keep patients cozy in the dentist's chair, and additional spa services such as herbal neck wraps can be purchased or bartered for with gold toothpicks.
Sunlight streams through large windows and glints off the glossy wood floor as yoga students twist and stretch next to exposed brick walls. Other guests can undergo spa treatments or massages at the hands of capable staff members. The Christian-based health hub, which welcomes visitors of all faiths, approaches wellness from a holistic perspective that considers the health of the mind, body, and spirit together. Fitness classes keep Pilates practitioners, kickboxers, and studious punching bags busy before they relax during massages and slimming body wraps.
A PGA member since 1986, Chuck Mayhew employs a fundamentals-first teaching methodology, thoroughly familiarizing students with the basics of swing mechanics before moving on to more complicated tweaks. Though certain golf tenets are universal, Mayhew knows that any single teaching method won't work for every player. Some are visual learners, some learn by repetition, and still others can only learn when a cast of singing hand puppets teaches them. Private lessons begin with an assessment of each player's current ball positioning, alignment, and swing posture—key components that must be corrected before beginning any backswing. Mayhew conducts lessons at Four Seasons Golf & Fitness Center, a full-service indoor golf-instruction facility that can stay open despite rain or bunker sandstorms.
For more than 35 years, dentists at American Dental Centers have polished pearly whites and prevented dental disease with thorough exams. At each of the 14 locations that dot Northern and Central Ohio, patients walk in or schedule appointments so they don’t have to scrape off plaque using chew toys. The center maintains a 24-hour phone line so that patients can arrange to have emergencies treated as soon as possible, and it also offers a Forever White program, in which patients pay a one-time fee and then receive take-home bleaching treatments for as long as they attend their regular three- or six-month check-ups.
