June 17, 1929 - Jan. 24, 2019 Dr. Philip A. LaNasa, a longtime local dentist, died Jan. 24 in Elderwood at Williamsville in Amherst. He was 89. Born in Geneva, N.Y., he graduated from Bishop Fallon High School in Buffalo and Canisius College. In 1954, he married Jeanette Scaccia. After Mr. LaNasa graduated from Georgetown University's School of Dentistry, the couple moved to Key West, Fla., where he served as a captain in the Navy from 1956 to 1958. In 1958, they moved to Clarence, where Mr. LaNasa opened a dental practice. The couple raised six children in Clarence. "As a family we went on many fun trips that we still talk about," Mr. LaNasa said, in a write-up marking his 80th birthday. "In those days, six children wasn't considered a large family and there was never a dull moment." Mr. LaNasa worked as a dentist for 38 years.

Sylvia Ulloa New Mexico In Depth Published 7:43 PM EST Dec 27, 2018 January will mark two years since Lynn Middle School in Las Cruces re-imagined itself. A walk around classrooms and its cafeteria reveals signs of the metamorphosis. On any given weekday, students drop in for healthy snacks or warm clothes in the school’s community room. Parents have access to computers, WiFi and office supplies to apply for jobs. Families and neighbors stop in for staples at a monthly food pantry operated by Roadrunner Food Bank. Meanwhile, a mobile Boys and Girls Club, set up in the school’s cafeteria, keeps them busy and, some say, out of trouble. Lynn is a community school, a model pioneered in the state at Albuquerque Public Schools. It’s an idea as old as the one-room schoolhouse, but with a modern twist. Instead of sending students out into the world to get help for non-classroom challenges, the school brings the world to them.

Brinley Hineman Murfreesboro Daily News Journal Published 12:49 PM EST Nov 20, 2018 A former employee of Dental Excellence owned and operated by local dentist Nate Schott said she and other employees were "groomed" to defraud patients and insurance companies. Debra Clark worked at Dental Excellence for a few months in 2014 but was ultimately fired when she began to question Schott's insurance practices. Schott and former employee Kendra L. Glenn are facing federal health care fraud charges for operating a scheme to defraud health care benefits, the Department of Justice announced Monday. Clark worked at the Lebanon office, first as a receptionist then later in the payment collections department. Although she had a background in credit collections, Clark had no formal training as a receptionist. She feels she was hired to be unknowingly trained to commit health insurance fraud. "He focused on people who had no receptionist or health care background so he could train them the way … [Read more...] about Nate Schott’s former employee says dentist ‘groomed’ workers to commit fraud

A free dental care clinic for people with barriers to getting dental care will take place on Sept. 7-8. Go to www.mnmom.org for details. For people who may not be low-income but lack adequate insurance to cover dental needs, try one of the many local schools that trains dentists, hygienists and dental assistants. By helping to train dental professionals-in-training, consumers save 30 to 70 percent compared to most dental offices. The downside? Getting an appointment may require an extended wait period except for emergencies. Once patients get an appointment, time in the clinic will be longer than at the dentist's office due to student training. Dental students' work needs to be supervised and most students work slower than experienced dental pros. Here's a list of Twin Cities schools for dental assistants, hygienists and dentists. DENTAL ASSISTANT/HYGIENIST SCHOOLS Argosy University dental hygiene clinic (1515 Central Pkwy., 3rd floor, Eagan, … [Read more...] about Need low cost dental care? Try local clinics/schools.
