It is date night, and you have more than one reason to flash a smile. Even after two weeks, you can hardly believe you got out of the dentist chair, relaxed and pain free. Not only did Dr. Ashley at Smile Smart Dental Center in Lakewood Ranch give you a new implant that makes you proud to show off your teeth again, he actually put you at ease during the whole procedure. Although, as the waiter brings the fresh, warm, French bread to your table, and your date softly caresses your hand, you have to admit the best part of the post-dental work is enjoying your favorite foods again … especially with someone special.
Dr. David Ashley says his main goal is to get people smiling again.
“I really like working with people. I like talking to people, and helping them, especially when they come in with a problem. Whether it be they don’t like the look of their teeth, or they’re missing a tooth and they need an implant, or they’re in pain, I just basically like solving their problem and making them happy.”
David Ashley was born in the cold climate of Canada, and went back and forth between our neighbor to the north and Florida all throughout his childhood and college years. His dental aspirations started at just five years old when his childhood dentist left such an impression on him that he made up his mind, then and there, that he was also going to be a dentist. He stuck to his early career choice, eventually graduating from dental school at the University of Florida.

Wow, what a day. You can’t wait to kick back and relax … and you know just where to do it … in your gorgeous Maxx Kashir corner bathtub from The Plumbing Place. You wanted to remodel your bathroom, so you stopped by their showroom to look around. There was so much to see, it was tough to decide what you liked best. But once your salesperson showed you that tub, you knew you had to have it. Ergonomic design, built-in head and armrests, 69 air and whirlpool jets—you even added an acoustic system.
You light a few candles, dim the lights and put on a little light jazz. As you sink beneath the swirling warm water, you close your eyes and let your mind drift. Ahhhh. This is heaven.
A knock at the door brings you back. Your husband peeks in, and you smile coquettishly—the Kashir is also built for two.
Perfect Timing For An Ideal Opportunity
John Smithman never planned on owning a plumbing store, but sometimes you just walk into an opportunity and things fall right into place—The Plumbing Place, in this case.

“Wow! What a great ride,” you think, as you roll your road bike into the garage. You stretch a little … enjoying the sensation. Yes, your quad muscles feel a little tight, but otherwise you’re terrific. Your back and knees don’t hurt a bit.
That wasn’t the case last month when you limped into Dr. Dube’s office at Advanced Healthcare Clinic, LLC, in pain from a recent crash. Climbing up on the treatment table and lying down took a good five minutes. The amazing thing was—right after Dr. Dube was done—getting up was easy. You immediately felt better. Now, you’re almost back to normal. Dr. Dube even helped you with a nutritional supplement plan to boost your energy level.
A few more weeks of treatment and you might just do that Century Ride.
A Passion For Helping People
Originally from Canada, Dr. Mario Dube, DOM, AP, started his career as an Engineer, but quickly decided that wasn’t for him—he preferred healthcare. Specifically, helping people to achieve optimal health through natural, safe, medication-free, effective methods such as acupuncture and integrative medicine.

Ahhh! That quintessential question of “Who let the dogs out?” is often followed by “Who’s going to pick up the dog business?” And in the past, the answer was usually you, which stinks! Now, thanks to Doodly Squat Pet Waste Removal, your reconnaissance missions of hunting for dog bombs are over. You get to sit back, relax, and enjoy a clean yard, while Doodly Squat makes sure you don’t have to do diddlysquat.
Ashleigh Silberstein, owner, operator and chief executive “poop-picker-upper” of Doodly Squat Pet Waste Removal knows from experience that being the one who is picking up doggie number two is not most people’s favorite job. So how does she make the task more pleasant?
“Just having the right mindset. I look forward to working outside, because I love the outdoors. And some of my clients live on the water.” She went on to say, “I really like meeting the dogs of my clients.” It is this positive attitude that makes Ashleigh such a treasure to her clients.

Your party guests are about to arrive, and your house has never looked better. That carpet is cleaner than the day they installed it, and your furniture belongs on the cover of Better Homes and Gardens. Of course, this is how your home always looks after Signa Perry of Pro-Care visits. With three kids and two dogs, you would have never believed “lived in” could look and smell this good. But ever since the first time you called Pro-Care, your home is always ready for company.
“Cleaning With A Woman’s Touch”
Signa Perry may have been a stay-at-home mom, but she was no homebody. “I love taking care of my son, but I need to be active. All my adult life I’ve been an athlete. I did roller derby for years, and I was an MMA fighter—a kick boxer. So, even when I wasn’t working, I had a strong work ethic. If I start a job, I will get that job done, and it will be right. That’s just who I am.”
When not at home with her son, Signa worked with animals and special needs children, so the fighter does have a softer side. “I loved working with kids and animals, and I enjoy people. Honestly, I’m very extroverted, and I’m pretty much always in a good mood.”

When you saw the sign for Healthy Living Organic & Natural Market, all you wanted to do was grab a smoothie. But once inside, you were hooked. There’s so much there—and it’s all healthy and organic.
You didn’t know where to look at first until Owner and General Manager, Maria Rosabal, came over and offered to help. You told her your health concerns, she gave you options, and explained her store’s mantra: “It’s all about education and empowering people to make the right choice so they can improve their health.”
Your choice was to take Maria’s advice and keep coming back to learn more about diet and nutrition. It’s turned out to be a life-changing decision.
From Managing Money To Helping People Manage Their Health
Maria wasn’t always interested in nutrition; she earned her MBA and spent 25 years as a banker. But when a severe health challenge threatened her family, she needed to make a change.
Maria went back to school. Got certified as a National Health Professional and Nutrition Counselor, a Master Herbalist, and, finally, as a Doctor of Naturopathy—a holistic and natural approach to achieving balance in the body.
