Dental hygienist how long does it take
Tanya Van Rose-Bell used to drive 60 to 90 minutes to reach a dentist, after she moved to the Lakes Region 14 years ago. With dentists scarce in rural and small-town Maine, she said she would drive to Westbrook or Brunswick for care. And although she didn’t miss an appointment, she knows many people who rarely visit the dentist because of the travel time. They can’t easily take time off from work, or they don’t have a car, she said. DENTAL REPORT CARD Maine’s dental report card is a mixed bag. Maine often measures in about the middle of many categories nationally. It doesn’t have the dental care problems found in the Deep South, but it also often does not compare favorably with other New England states. • GOING TO THE DENTIST: The percentage of people who have seen a dentist within the past year is 65.3 percent in Maine, the lowest of the New England states, compared to 76.2 percent in Massachusetts, the highest in the nation, according to … [Read more...] about Access to dental care in rural Maine center of dental therapists debate
There is a sarcastic side Eli Manning does not let out, but you could sense it bubbling near the surface the other day. The Giants do not score enough, and they need to send out a search party to locate the whereabouts of the big plays their offense is supposed to be predicated upon. These failings burden many shoulders, none more heavily than those of Manning. So, the quarterback is in the center of the storm, again. Is it worth taking a shot down the field, even if the defense is sitting back and waiting for the deep ball? “That usually leads to bad plays,’’ Manning said. But … given the losing, isn’t it worth the risk? “Risks are not what you want to take,’’ he said. “You throw the ball down the field when it’s not risky, and then there’s forcing things and that leads to turnovers that leads to mistakes.’’ You get the sense Manning drives responsibly, invests conservatively and receives praise from his … [Read more...] about Eli Manning’s low-risk game plan is driving Giants nowhere fast
Krista Johnson Montgomery Advertiser Published 10:43 AM EDT Sep 21, 2018 Bridge with one friend once a week and lunch with another, out-of-town college volleyball games for her granddaughter regularly, luncheons with her graduating class monthly and of course, church on Sundays. Dot Hawthorne, despite her age of 88-years-old, stays active – occasionally so active it worries her children. She doesn’t have the time to take it easy, though. “All my life – I’ve kept so busy,” Dot said, pointing to being one of seven children, with activities always going on. “I don’t know any different,” she explained. The answer to her longevity: laugh often, which she does. From card tricks to telling jokes and recalling different pranks, Dot keeps a smile on her face. “God is love and he’s put so much love in me … I feel very blessed,” she said. She also steps out of her front door in Snowdoun in south … [Read more...] about Faith and family spur 88-year-old Dot Hawthorne to live life to the fullest
<>Runner Peter Feiveson warms up on the treadmill in the new running store called Runners High that looks out through the large windows at left to Red Rocks Amphitheatre on Sept. 13 in Morrison. Ken Pliska and his wife Deb Spence, not shown, own two running stores one in Golden and this one in Morrison at the edge of Red Rocks Park. (Helen H. Richardson, The Denver Post) When Deb Spence and Ken Pliska opened a new running store in a former wedding chapel at the southern edge of Red Rocks Park last month, it was a great fit for a couple who got married at the finish line of the Boston Marathon a decade ago. Serving runners independently in an industry dominated by corporate chains is a labor of love for them. And the new location of Runners High, with massive windows framing the park’s iconic red sandstone rock formations that served as the backdrop for countless weddings, seems to tie the knot. It might be, as Spence suggests, “the most beautiful running store in the … [Read more...] about This Red Rocks wedding chapel may be the most beautiful location for a running store
