Hercules Dental Care Dentists, Dr. Francis Cruz, Dr. Martine Joseph and the dental staff at Hercules Dental Care in Brentwood are committed to providing you with the personalized, high quality dental care that you deserve. They offer patients a comprehensive list of general, restorative and cosmetic dental services designed to meet the needs of of the entire family. Their goal is to assist each patient in achieving and maintaining long-term dental health and an attractive smile. As a practice, the staff and dentists at Hercules Dental Care are true believers that preventive care and education are the keys to optimal dental health. They strive to provide “dental health care” vs. “disease care”. That’s why they focus on thorough exams – checking the overall health of your teeth and gums, performing oral cancer exams and taking x-rays when necessary. Not only are they focused on the beauty of your smile, they’re also concerned about your health. A review of your medical history can help them stay informed of your overall health, any new medications and any illnesses that may impact your dental health. As your dental health professionals, you’ll be confident knowing the dentists and staff are a team of highly trained and skilled clinicians. In order to

give you the best possible service and results, they are committed to continual education and learning. They attend dental lectures, meetings and dental conventions to stay informed of new techniques, the latest products and the newest equipment that a modern dental office can utilize to provide state-of-the-art dental care. Serving Brentwood area patients includes providing information that helps patients make more informed decisions about their oral health needs and the dental treatments they are receiving. In addition, Hercules Dental Care in Brentwood is uncompromising when it comes to your safety. As such, infection control in the Brentwood office is very important. To protect patients and themselves, they strictly maintain sterilization and cross contamination processes recommended by the ADA, OSHA and the CDC. And a couple of other really great features that set them apart are, first, the dental video page on their website. It contains a library of videos related to the dental procedures and treatment options they offer, so you’ll know exactly what to expect from your procedure. Next, their online appointment request form helps making your appointment a breeze and, finally, should a dental emergency occur, the doctors will make every effort to see and care for you as soon as possible. At Hercules Dental Care in Brentwood, they know that building a foundation

of trust by treating patients as special individuals is vital to their success. They understand how uneasy some patients may feel about their dental visits, and how they can make a difference in providing a relaxing and positive experience. So, the entire team is dedicated to providing you with excellent, personalized care and service to make your visits as comfortable and pleasant as possible. Testimonials I was so glad to get a “same day” appointment. There was no hidden cost and I was not talked into doing any more than necessary! The latest in technology was there and the office was spotless! This is the first time I can say I am not dreading returning for my cleaning in 6 months...and I will actually return! Thank you for your great services! – S. Borer Thanks for being gentle, efficient, courteous and thorough. – K. Sveen Dr. Cruz is very gentle and really enjoyed his personable personality. Myra and Melissa are sweet and I am now looking forward to my dentist visits instead of being petrified. – E. Vee

Hercules Dental Care is located at 3120 Balfour Road, Suite D in Brentwood. They can be contacted at 925-634-4040 or visit their website at www.HDCBrentwood.com. Follow them on Facebook.

CUSTOMER SUPPORT

No matter if your finances are a source of anxiety or if you live within your means, it’s always a good idea to periodically reevaluate the way you spend money. While credit cards give consumers the purchasing power they need to lead comfortable lives, they can also make irresponsible spending all too easy.

The Monthly Grapevine® 9040 Brentwood Boulevard, Suite B Brentwood, CA 94513 Available in Person Monday 9am - 4:30pm Tuesday - Thursday 9am - 5pm Friday by Appointment. Main Office: 925.634.0880, Fax 925.634.7822 Write us at: info@monthlygrapevine.com 24/7 at www.monthlygrapevine.com

In these uncertain financial times, getting a handle on any debt you may have is more important than ever. Luckily, it’s never too late to learn good spending habits. The first step toward prosperity is taking control of unconscious debt -including impulse purchases that you buy on credit but don’t need or don’t even remember purchasing. A healthy attitude toward wealth comes good habits. • If you have debt, develop a specific repayment plan with fixed payment amounts. • Never pay late fees on your credit cards and other bills. They are as good as throwing money out the window. Pay your bills on time, all the time. • Before you make a purchase, ask, do I want this item or do I need this item? If it is only a want, evaluate whether your budget supports it. Wealth is not defined by the amount of stuff you have. • Write yourself a list to avoid binge shopping. If you want to make a purchase that’s not on the list, try putting the item on hold. If you forget about it after a week, you probably didn’t need or want it that much in the first place.

WHO’S BEEN SNOOPED?

how those restaurants get that Italian slate and vintage look in their oors.

The Art of Concrete

Imagine turning your boring driveway and walkways into beautiful tile squares with sandstone and walnut colors. This is the kind of stuff you see in those gated communities with big custom homes. The neat part about this is it doesn’t require bricks, pavers, or tiles, it is all created out of concrete with stamps and custom colors. That means you can take the colors of your house and match them to your sidewalks and driveway. How cool is that?

Well, it is that time of year again! Cupid has his bow drawn and the City is filled with red roses and shiny balloons. Remarkably, the weather outside looks like spring, and it is only Valentine’s Day. The sun is bright, the sky is blue and the clouds look like art. You can see hints of alfalfa and red oat hay peeking through the dirt and the blossoms are starting to show on the cherry trees. And, with the rain nowhere in sight, it makes you want to get outside and spruce up the place after winter. What a perfect time to look in on a local business that can bring a new life to your home overnight. Manuel Iglesias Concrete has been in business for 35 years and is considered one of the best in the industry. This is not your normal gray concrete guy; he is the master at quality custom art! I visited their website at www.manueliglesiasconcrete.com to find great pictures of some of the work they have done. I was amazed at the different samples of texture, color and design that could be done with concrete. Now I know

I think the part I liked best was the indoor possibilities. You can finally get rid of that boring old carpet and replace it with custom designed concrete. With the inuence of Tuscany in today’s dÊcor, wouldn’t it be great to have your oors look like that of Europe. Or, that family room that gets all that wear and tear can be versatile and beautiful at the same time. Manuel is an artist and has a wonderful eye for color and design. And, it is all custom to your home, so it is exclusive to you. They do commercial and residential including patios, walkways, retaining walls, foundations, steps, stamped concrete, stamped overlayment, pavers, concrete staining & sealing, agstone, block and brick. And, they are offering discounts of about 20%. Now we are talking! After all, with

the economy in a slump, who doesn’t want to save money? And, my friends in the real estate business are telling me that people are staying in their homes and investing in upgrades to put on a bright new look. With help from Manuel, you can begin to create a whole new home from the outside in. I recommend that you grab a cup of coffee during this incredible weather and take a sketch pad with you outside to take a look at the areas in your yard that could use a little tune-up before you bring in those wonderful spring owers. Even if it is just the front porch, you can turn your gray concrete into a grand entrance. And, that area around the pool can be enhanced with a simple stamped overlayment. I know this because we have it in our home and it completely changed the look and now complements the entire house. And, the best part is, it washes off with the hose in seconds. So Manuel, this snoop is a big fan and welcomes everyone to give you a call so you can help them create their own paradise. The monthly grapevine gives Manuel Iglesias Concrete five golden bricks for your expert, quality workmanship and devotion to getting the job done on time for a reasonable amount of investment. Who will be snooped next? It could be you!

California Foreclosure Process - Know the Timeline Recently, we have been seeing more and more nonjudicial foreclosures being started by lenders. In California, if you are behind on your home loan, your lender will typically use a nonjudicial foreclosure process known as a trustee’s sale to sell your home. While it is possible for a lender to use a judicial foreclosure process which is filed through a state court action, the judicial foreclosure process is much more expensive and takes longer. The only time we typically see a judicial foreclosure is when the lender is certain that the borrower has sufficient income or assets to pay a deficiency balance….think doctors, investment bankers. The following is the minimum timeline for a nonjudicial foreclosure in California: Day 1- For loans made between January 1, 2003 and December 31, 2007 on residential one-four unit owner occupied properties, California Civil Code Section 2923.5(a), requires the lender to contact the borrower by phone or in person to assess the borrower’s financial situation and explore options for avoiding foreclosure. During the conversation, the lender must inform the borrower of the right to meet with the lender within 14 days. The lender must also give the borrower the toll free number for finding a HUD certified housing counseling agency. Day 31- The Notice of Default (“NOD”) is recorded in the county where the real property is located. Within 10 days after recordation of the NOD, a copy of the NOD must be mailed by registered or certified mail to the borrower and to any parties with a recorded Request for Notice. The NOD must run 3 months before the Notice of Sale can be posted. Day 116-121- The Notice of Trustee’s Sale must set forth the date, time and place of the Sale. It must also include the total amount of the unpaid balance and reasonably estimated costs, expenses, and advances at the time of the initial publication of the Notice. The Notice must be recorded, posted, published and also mailed by registered or certified mail as well as first class mail to the borrower. The Notice must run once a week for 3 consecutive weeks in a newspaper of general circulation.

20

Day 135- Up to 5 business days before the Trustee’s Sale, the borrower may reinstate the loan i.e. bring current by paying the missed payments plus allowable costs. If the Sale is postponed, the date for the borrower to reinstate is postponed accordingly. Day 141- At the Trustee’s Sale, the property is sold through a public auction to the highest bidder. The borrower still has the right to redeem the property, but he must pay the entire debt, plus interest and costs before the bidding begins at the Sale. Most nonjudicial foreclosure in California take far longer than 141 days because the foreclosure process will be put on hold during a loan modification or short sale. However, there is no requirement for the foreclosure to be put on hold and a borrower should not count on additional time. This is a complicated area of the law and the implications for personal liability and tax liability are great. If you are considering a default on your home, I urge you to seek legal counsel as soon as possible to fully understand the consequences of the decision and the other options available to you. In see people for free 30 minute consultations in my offices located in Walnut Creek, Antioch and Brentwood. I Can Handle This On My Own When a person is behind on a home loan, it is very common to think a foreclosure or short sale will allow them to focus on other debts and thereby avoid a bankruptcy filing. However, all too often, a foreclosure or short sale is still followed by a bankruptcy because there is either another loan on the property which starts collecting on its loan or there are taxes as a result of the foreclosure sale which the borrower was unaware. In many cases, a bankruptcy filing prior to the foreclosure or short sale would have discharged the liability on any additional loans on the property, avoided the tax liability completely and allowed the person to stay in the property several additional months. Additionally, a foreclosure or short sale prior to a bankruptcy filing may cause a person not to qualify for a Chapter 7 bankruptcy leaving a person in a Chapter 13 bankruptcy for 3-5 years. What should a person consider prior to allowing a property to be sold at a foreclosure sale? First, prior to allowing a property to be sold through a foreclosure or short sale, (1) determine the affect of the foreclosure or short sale on your credit, (2) is there any personal liability after the foreclosure or short sale which could be discharged

The Monthly Grapevine™ EAST COUNTY EDITION MARCH 2012

in a bankruptcy filing and (3) is there any tax liability which could be discharged through a bankruptcy filing prior to the foreclosure or short sale. Second, could a Chapter 13 bankruptcy filing avoid a junior lien on your principal residence which would have allowed you to retain the real property? Under the Bankruptcy law, a junior lien on a person’s principal residence which does not attach to equity in the real property can be avoided through a Chapter 13 Plan. For example, if the current fair market value of a principal residence is $250,000 and the balance on the first deed of trust is $300,000, then a junior lien could be avoided through the Chapter 13 Plan. A Chapter 13 also allows a person to cure a default on a home loan over time which may be all that is necessary to avoid a foreclosure sale. Third, are there any other reasons that a bankruptcy filing may be appropriate prior to a foreclosure sale. The most common reason is that there is significant unsecured debt which can be discharged in the bankruptcy and a bankruptcy filing prior to a foreclosure sale will allow a person to file a Chapter 7 instead of being required to enter into a Chapter 13 repayment plan. In addition, a bankruptcy filing will allow a person to remain in the property additional time. In conclusion, a foreclosure or short sale of real property without a bankruptcy filing may be the right decision. However, a foreclosure or short sale will have serious consequences which should be analyzed by a bankruptcy or real estate attorney prior to the foreclosure sale. This is a complicated area of the law, but a bankruptcy or real estate attorney should be able to make to an analysis of your particular situation fairly quickly. I do free 30 minute consultation in my offices located in Walnut Creek, Antioch and Brentwood. There is no reason to make a wrong decision about a foreclosure or short sale when legal assistance is available. WE ARE DEBT RELIEF AGENCY AND HELP PEOPLE FILE FOR BANKRUPTCY.

How To Save Money On Fixing Car Leather

First thing’s first, a bit of soap and water is needed. With it, give the area a good clean to rid it of any dirt and grime, then pat it dry with a cloth. Next, grab some alcohol pads. These further clean the area as well as remove any remaining oils from the leather. Make sure to let the surface dry thoroughly. Without these two steps, the compound needed to seal the cracked leather can’t attach itself properly to the material.

Car seats can easily fall prey to wear and tear. Here’s how to fix rips and cracks in leather without taking your vehicle to the shop. It’s amazing how quickly leather can go from looking luxurious and expensive to looking ratty. After a couple years’ worth of seat time, the leather in your car can crack and rip if it hasn’t been properly cared for. Rather than running to get it fixed, keep most of your money in your wallet by doing the repair job yourself. It’s such an easy fix, we guarantee you’ll be shocked (and mildly horrified) at how much the shops charge. Wear and poor maintenance are the leading causes of cracked leather. After repeatedly getting in and out of your car and leaving it to bake in the sun on those hot summer days, susceptible

Lastly, you need a leather repair kit that includes the exact color match of the leather. Most providers have charts that allow you easy access to the right hue. You’ll find most kits are priced below $50, and they include all the necessary products to complete your restoration from this point on. The repair compound found in the kit can now be spread on your newly clean and dry leather. Make sure you fill all the visible cracks. You can wait for it to completely dry, which takes a couple hours, or use a hair dryer (keep it at least 18 inches away from the leather) to speed

up the process. Then coat the finisher over the surface followed by a leather conditioner over the entire leather area. Sometimes you’ll find that you need to repair a tear in the material, not just cracks in the surface. If this is the case, the ripped edges must be cut away to leave a clean hole. Cut enough extra fabric from a tucked away location (under the seat works best) to fill the hole with it. To create a perfect match, outline the hole using tracing paper and then cut the extra material to fit tightly within the cut away area. You can then proceed to use the leather repair kit as established above. Easier than you thought, we know, but it is still a process that we’re sure you don’t feel inclined to do every weekend. To avoid spending time on repair work and save money in the long run, purchase a leather protectant. They’re usually around $6-10 and, if regularly used, can keep your car’s leather looking healthy for years.
