New Mayor & Councilmembers New Mayor Jeff Toborg, along with Councilmembers Todd Hendreks, John Diak, and Laura Hefta after their swearing in last month. Mayor Toborg was chosen by residents as Parker’s seventh Mayor. In addition, Todd Hendreks, John Diak, and Laura Hefta were selected to four-year terms as Councilmembers. Diak was an incumbent, while Hefta and Hendreks earned their first terms, replacing outgoing Councilmembers Debbie Lewis and Joshua Rivero. There are two vacancies on Town Council created by Toborg’s election to Mayor and former Councilmember Renee Williams’ resignation in September. The process of filling both positions will be determined by Town Council in the coming weeks.

NEXTGENERATIONDENTISTRY The future of Dentistry is here. One of the most common childhood fears is going to the dentist. No one likes to go, in spite of the fact that everyone knows how crucial oral health is and how strongly it is connected to our overall health. But an armada of new technologies and ideas will revolutionise dentistry and our outlook on oral health. Dr. Larry O'Neill has been a dentist for over 40 years; he has seen it all. His lengthy experience and time serving as Inspector General led him to question some accepted practices and procedures. Dr. O'Neill found that some dental procedures can create a potentially infectious aerosol that hangs in the air for many minutes after the procedure is complete. This spurred Dr O'Neill to find a better way to practice dentistry. This month, Running Creek Dental will open in Elizabeth. They will be using surgical-grade operatories with negative pressure air-handling systems that will allow for the most sterile work environment for the health and safety of both staff and patients. Not only is the new clinic using some of the latest, least invasive and most convenient new dental technology for procedures, they will also offer: • • • • • • • • •

Crowns and Veneers placed in one appointment Advanced Surgical and Dental Implant Procedures Laser Therapies and Drill-less fillings Sedation Dentistry CAD CAM Design and 3-D Diagnostic Equipment Sleep Apnea and Airway Testing PCR Testing for COVID-19 Invisalign Orthodontics Simple Diagnostic Blood Tests

Not since the development of composites in the '60s has there been such an exciting time of innovation in dentistry. They will not only change the way dentistry is performed and how dental practices are operated, but will dramatically improve outcomes for patients. Dental industry - consider yourself warned; the bar has been raised. 10 SEARCHPARKER | JANUARY 2021

A

IN WITH THE NEW t the beginning of a new year, it is customary to look back at the old. 2020 was a very unique and challenging year. While looking back, I admire the world’s creativity, flexibility, and problem solving due to many changes in our normal lives.

In our own community and beyond we saw mass expansion in home delivery and curbside pickup options. We have seen this shift in businesses across the board, from restaurants and groceries to auto shops and home improvement stores. Pulling up to the library and texting to have your books delivered right to your trunk was a very accommodating phase. Restaurants have extended their dining spaces to outdoor patios and set up tents in parking lots. Hand sanitizer and plexiglass were distributed in abundance. Venues provided online reservations in time slots to allow for planning ahead and spacing out. Many of these changes have provided compliance with safety regulations, as well as greater convenience for customers. Being socially distant was, and still is, encouraged at every place outside of our homes. Reminders came in the form of tape, rope, stickers on the floor, signs on every other table or bench, stuffed animals, mannequins, and painted sections on the grass. My favorite has been the cardboard cutouts of people, characters, and animals spread across stadium seats in place of fans. Virtual has become the new normal for taking a class, watching a performance, or holding a business meeting. We’ve “attended” church, family reunions, and parties virtually. I’ve even received a treat or paraphernalia in the mail to be enjoyed during an online party. Games, campaigns, service, and competitions have been accomplished over social media. School has shifted to many virtual and hybrid options, with fewer people at school at a time and a lot of online work. Teachers and students have even joined the physical classroom through a projector screen while in quarantine. It seems that nearly every household needed to implement or improve a home office, home gym, home classroom, or all of the above. Home projects increased due to these necessities and more time at home. We have become experts at using our devices to join online meets. This phenomenon has included new skills in muting ourselves, displaying creative backgrounds behind us, and sharing screens. It has been entertaining to watch silent clapping and thumbs up or thumbs down while on camera in a group setting. Handshakes and hugs have been replaced with elbow or foot bumps, waves, and salutes. Even smiles can’t be the usual form of greeting while wearing a mask. It has been crazy to see how unrecognizable people can be in a mask. Masks and face shields are the new fashion statement. They come in a huge variety to show style, funny faces, school spirit, employers, team unity, and so forth. Although we’ve missed out on a lot, we’ve also learned innovative ways to do more and connect with others. “Necessity is the mother of invention,” has certainly applied here. It will be interesting to see which of these developments created out of necessity will actually remain routine moving forward. Despite all the changes in public, time at home, time with family, and time to slow down have been a welcomed transition. We have certainly come to recognize how much we took for granted and will have more gratitude for gathering with family and friends when we can again. I appreciate and respect the ability we’ve shown to change, to cope, and to improve. We did well. We fought a good fight! Here’s to a new year and a fresh start. Happy New Year 2021!

As we take a look back at the year that was, there were many big news stories that affected our world. Wild fires raged, protests and riots for equality shattered the social structure, murder hornets emerged, and a new president was elected. All of these (and many more) headlines alone would have made this an unforgettable year, but 2020 will always be remembered as
