Medlab's teams of medical professionals quantify and assess important bodily systems at locations throughout a five-state Midwest region. Trained to work with patients of all ages, phlebotomists deftly retrieve blood with minimal discomfort, then process the samples to analyze vital statistics such as cholesterol, glucose levels, and sodium. Wait times that average 10 minutes free up precious time for patients.
Wear white, and be prepared for that shirt to never look the same. That's just about the only rule of the Color Blaze 5K, a technicolor event that's a little different than the standard run. For one, contestants don't have to run at all—in fact, they can mosey, lollygag, skip, crawl, jog, and backflip their way along the course. Rather than determining the best time, the non-competitive race is about the experience itself. At each successive mile, Blaze Zones powder participants in biodegradable—and even edible—colors, creating an army of fleet-footed Jackson Pollocks. Proceeds from the event benefit local charities, and an afterparty welcomes the newly prismatic to dance the day away in their freshly illustrated get-ups.
At Shambaugh Family Dentistry, patients can clean up dingy smiles with a variety of whitening services. The process for acquiring whitening trays (a $350 value) begins with a 20-minute initial consultation. A brief examination ensures that teeth are healthy enough to be beautified, and upper and lower bite impressions are taken. Come back one week later to pick up the trays; it takes about 20 minutes to deliver the whitening trays and learn the instructions. Opt for the Zoom! Whitening treatment (a $475 value) and experience shade-shifting results of at least six to ten shades. After a 20-minute initial appointment, this quick, pain-free process takes just over an hour and involves the application of a scientifically formulated gel that activates under a specially designed Zoom! light. Feel free to kick back and relax as the activated gel makes its way into your teeth, targeting discolorations and transforming smiles from sparkling to most sparklingist. Much like building a cubicle, the entire Zoom! process takes place in-office, which means you'll be exempt from additional take-home whitening regimens.
