an OrthoWorks that is conveniently located to you.

OrthoWorks Regarded as the “Father of Modern Orthodontics,” one of the most influential figures in the specialty of orthodontics was Edward H. Angle. Through his dedication, orthodontics was separated from other branches of dentistry, resulting in the specialty of orthodontics. He was the first dentist to limit his practice to orthodontics and he opened the first school of orthodontics in 1901. A lot has changed in the world of orthodontics since Dr. Angle’s time. For example, it used to be that orthodontic treatment was mainly limited to teens and pre-teens that had problems with their bite. Today, it is estimated that close to 30 percent of all orthodontic patients in the U.S. are adults. No matter what the patient’s age is, orthodontics can correct a bite, maximize the teeth’s effectiveness and create a well-aligned smile. With this in mind, if you or a family member is in need of orthodontic care, look no further than OrthoWorks. OrthoWorks is a team of seven orthodontic specialists in the Bay Area, with a combined experience of over 70 years treating both children and adults. With nine locations (including Dr. David Shen in their East County location in Antioch), you’re sure to find

As a team, OrthoWorks is committed to providing beautiful, healthy smiles for children and adults through the best orthodontic care. They are dedicated to providing extraordinary personal service with compassion and consideration for each individual’s needs, while creating a friendly, caring and welcoming atmosphere, with a staff that is quick to address your concerns. When you select OrthoWorks as your orthodontic care team, you can rest assured that every effort will be made to provide the highest quality treatment for you. They recognize your interest in the most advanced orthodontic treatment, so their centers offer stainless steel braces, clear ceramic braces, Invisalign® and retainer treatment as ways of improving the alignment of your teeth and bite. It is the desire of OrthoWorks to provide for your orthodontic needs both thoroughly and efficiently. As such, they look forward to meeting you on your first office visit. During that time, they’ll help you get acquainted with the office and learn about your orthodontic treatment. They understand that each patient’s orthodontic treatment is different, and they promise to give you the personal attention you deserve. Your first orthodontic visit will consist of an examination and discussion of potential treatment options. This important visit will address your

orthodontic needs to determine if this is the proper time to begin treatment. After your records have been evaluated, they’ll conduct a treatment consultation to explain all aspects of your treatment in detail. They provide a complete clinical diagnosis regarding the nature of the problem, a written summary of the findings and a detailed plan that outlines your treatment, goals and estimated fees. They encourage questions from both the patient and the parent, and as such, provide ample time to answer your questions. If you are in need of orthodontic care, put your smile in the good hands of the OrthoWorks professionals! Testimonial I just want to say that everyone at OrthoWorks are unique, caring, and wonderful people, and I will recommend your office to all my friends and family. I feel great and very confident, in that I will always smile. I will never forget what you’ve done for me. Thanks for my beautiful smile! - Charlene P. I had a great time with everyone at OrthoWorks. Everyone treated me with great respect and care. I enjoyed coming here and getting my teeth perfected. I’m always smiling now! - John S. OrthoWorks is located at 5117 Lone Tree Way in Antioch. They can be contacted at 925-1888-272-2372 or visit them at www.orthoworks.com.

WHO’S BEEN SNOOPED?

Haircuts for the Young Well, we are getting ready to spring forward our clocks to a beautiful day. Off to the west is a clear picture of our famous Mt. Diablo nestled in the beautiful surrounding hills, which just may turn green yet, after the much needed recent rains. That being said, there is nothing better than a great haircut to help you spring into a new season. On assignment, I am off to visit one of East County’s finest hair cut establishments for the younger generation. Remembering my youth, I always dreaded that day, because it seemed like they just chopped it off and it was always too short. Lollipop Haircut Shop is the greatest idea, well, since the lollipop itself. Located on Lone Tree Way a couple of doors down from the Goodwill Store, this wonderland for haircuts can be seen from the parking lot with its great Lollipop logo on the sign.

As I entered the front door, I felt like a kid again. The bright bold colors and reception area filled with fun stuff to do is a great way to welcome the youngest client for their first haircut. I was greeted by one of the stylists with a great big smile and cordial hello. I told her I was researching the place for a friend and was really impressed with the décor. The place was full and every one of the kids was having a great time. I highly recommend that you visit in person or go to the website to check out these neat styling chairs that look like cars at www.lollipophaircutshop.com. I would have loved this place as a kid. I think the best part of Lollipops is the cleanliness. Everything is bright and cheery and immaculate. The styling stations are so cute with four different car designs to choose from. The kids that were there getting haircuts ALL had smiles on their faces and were enjoying the experience. They have a Baby’s 1st Haircut Package where you receive a certificate, photo and lock of hair for memories that last forever and every customer gets a free lollipop. BRILLIANT! They also have a variety of professional products and a line just for kids. How cool is that? You can either

walk in or make an appointment and they are open Monday through Saturday and three Sundays a month. They open at 10:00am weekdays and 9:00am on Saturday. They also do buzz cuts, bangs and hair wash. Imagine being able to watch television in a miniature racecar and get your haircut from a really nice lady. Then, get a lollipop too! Although it appears to be just for kids, these gals also do adult haircuts. Now that is a great plus! You can bring your kids for an enjoyable experience and get your hair done at the same time. And if you’re good, you too can get a lollipop. So, Carolyn, Clara and Adela, owners of Lollipop Haircut Shop, this secret shopper gives you, ten cherry flavored (those are the red ones and my favorite) lollipops for bringing this delightful business to our county and taking such wonderful care of our kids. Your staff and your salon are absolutely wonderful and highly regarded by all who patronize you. Who will be snooped next? It could be you!

Lollipop Haircut Shop is located at 6271 Lone Tree Way in Brentwood. They can be contacted at 925-240-1337 or visit them at www.lollipophaircutshop.com.

HEALTH

FOR YOUR DENTAL HEALTH

Snoring in Children The prevalence of snoring in children ranges from 10% to 21% from 6 to 81 months. Habitual snoring is documented in 17% of pediatric patients and this percentage increases in children with neurological problems or psychiatric problems. Snoring is an indication of obstructive sleep apnea. In the general population, 2-3% of children have apnea. This proportion is growing more with the increase in childhood obesity. What is apnea? Apnea in children is events lasting longer than two missed breaths and most commonly associated with some change in oxygen concentration. Snoring and mouth breathing in children were initially thought of as not harmful habits but, more recently, it has been associated with a higher risk of social problems, poor academic performance, decreased attention and anxiety and depression issues. Children who snore are not likely

to grow out of it and the neurocognitive and behavioral damage from snoring in children is related to the fact that their brains are still growing. Dentists have a unique role in early identification of the Sleep Disordered Breathing or SDB, especially in children, as these children have abnormal facial growth, resulting in orthodontic problems and sleep related teeth grinding, as well. Sleep Disordered Breathing or SDB may create facial growth changes and these skeletal alterations can further worsen the Sleep Disordered Breathing. Head and facial maturity is about 60% complete in children by the time they are 4 years of age, but the tonsils and adenoids begin to grow more in size when children are two and half years old and increase greatest in size by 6 years, causing additional airway blockage. In our body, soft tissue and muscles that cover the bone influence the pattern of bone growth. Therefore, the facial muscles and the tongue tone create a framework for normal development of the nose and jaws. In children with SDB, these muscles are weak, causing narrow palate and small jaws and this amplifies the difficulty in breathing. Mouth breathers typically have a smaller upper airway size. Sometimes, when the tonsils

and adenoids get extremely bigger in size, it causes more airway blockage. These children tend to have long and thin face, along with small jaws and an open bite. The dentist is in the best position to diagnose these conditions in children. Identifying the facial growth changes early in development may help resolve the orthodontic issues by getting the proper treatment as soon as possible. Therefore, it is extremely important to get children to see the dentist early on as the impact of SDB in growing children can be serious and proper treatment can help prevent further complications.

REALTOR IN MOTION

VA Purchases Are Back Big! After many years of working in both the mortgage business and now in Real Estate industry as a REALTOR®, I will tell you that, without a doubt, the most satisfying part of this business is giving keys to the family of a Veteran moving into their new home. We could have a long discussion on the many things our government does wrong, but the one thing that has proven to be done correctly by our friends in Washington is the VA Home Loan Program. No one can deny that anyone is more deserving of a great benefit like this than our Veterans. The challenge, unfortunately, is that most Veterans are not fully aware of just how simple and beneficial this program really is and how quickly they can become homeowners if they wish to do so. Quite frankly, and unfortunately,

KEVC O

Tub & Tile R

EF

I N ISH I NG

not every Realtor and Lender fully understand all the unique advantages this program has to offer, as well. Some Real Estate Agents accepting offers may even look sideways at VA purchase offers, thinking that it may cost their Seller fees... this is simply untrue and due only to a lack of knowledge. So allow me to again show why the VA Loan Program is clearly the best program ever:

If a Veteran had hard times in the past, VA guidelines allow veterans to use their home-loan benefits a year or two after bankruptcy or foreclosure. They look at the whole credit picture, what was the reason for the credit bankruptcy and where the borrower is now. As for purchasing power, the limit on VA loans vary by county, but it’s $417,000 in most parts of the country and up to $1,094,625 in high-cost areas. If you’re a Veteran, you should use a REALTOR that understands how to negotiate on your behalf. You served us, now let our Veteran benefits serve you.

First of all, you don’t need perfect credit. Unlike traditional loans, the VA loan has great flexibility allowing more debt and fair credit scores. The second and probably the best reason is that when no-money down loans fell from the face of the earth, the VA loan remained the only NO-DOWN loan intact. The absence of mortgage insurance adds another great feature to this program. Last year, when FHA aggressively increased the cost of Mortgage Insurance on all FHA loans, they hit new buyers hard, asking them to pay the consequences for all the loans that defaulted before them. The VA loan came through without a change, again proving that no loan program can match the VA loan.

Removing Wallpaper The real secret to successful wallpaper removal is something that happens long before it’s time to remove the paper; it’s done when the paper is being hung. It’s called proper wall preparation! Unfortunately, chances are that you may not have owned the home when the paper was originally installed and that’s exactly why you’re removing the paper. Sorry to break the bad news, but red velvet flocked paper is out! Even if the walls were not prepared to your ultimate satisfaction, you’ll still be able to remove the paper. It just may mean a little more elbow grease and some additional repair work to the wall surface once the paper has been totally removed. Begin by performing the second most important secret to successful wallpaper removal; scoring or breaking the surface of the paper to allow steam or a paste solvent to penetrate the face

Tricia’s

of the paper and weaken the bond. Although this can be accomplished in several ways, two of the most popular are with a scoring device designed specifically for this task or by using a hand saw. The teeth of the saw are run across the face of the paper and result in what an angry cat might do to a predator. The two most popular methods to remove wallpaper are using a steamer or with an enzyme based solution, which will neutralize the wallpaper paste. Either of these methods is acceptable and, under normal circumstances, will work quite well. A steamer, which can be rented from your local tool rental establishment or paint and wallpaper store, is inexpensive and easy to use. Steam is used to moisten the paste while not saturating the drywall or plaster below. The wallpaper stripping solution can be purchased from your local hardware store, home center, or paint and wallpaper specialty store. It comes as concentrated formula that is to be mixed with water and sprayed on with a pump garden sprayer. Be cautious not to use too much or you could soak the

Regardless of which method you should use, start from a corner at the top and work your way down along vertical seams, letting gravity help peel back the paper. You may find that using a four to five inch putty knife can significantly improve your ability to separate the paper from the wall. After all of the paper has been removed, thoroughly clean up any paste and paste remover that may remain using a sponge and warm water. Once the wall has dried completely -- generally a day or two -- you can make repairs to the surface with drywall joint compound or another appropriate patching material. A little light sanding and you’ll be free of that purple paisley wallpaper and be ready to move on to new horizons.

Spring Cleaning? Don’t Forget Your Car!

Winter’s “major deadly sins” can affect just about all vehicle systems, but some are especially vulnerable. Vehicle owners can follow these tips to ensure their vehicles are ready to roll:

Winter can be tough on lots of things, including cars and trucks. Cold temperatures, snow and ice, road salt and pothole-causing freeze-thaw cycles put car batteries, tires, brakes and suspensions to the test.

Batteries: They work harder when it’s cold, and winter can compromise their cranking performance up to 60 percent. Test and replace old or weak batteries, especially those more than three years old. It can be cheaper than a tow and replacement on the road.

According to the National Highway Traffic and Safety Administration vehicle crashes due to neglected maintenance cause more than 2,600 deaths a year. Spring is the time to rid vehicles of winter’s sins in time for summer travel.

Tires, wheels: Cold weather can reduce tire pressure, so make sure all tires, including the spare, are properly inflated and balanced, and wheels are properly aligned. Inflate tires to their recommended pressure - check the inside of your car door to find out what the proper air pressure should be.

Americans have more than doubled their vehicle miles traveled, according to federal statistics. In summer, many of those miles are logged on driving vacations far from home, the last place motorists want to risk a breakdown. “Regular vehicle maintenance and inspections can help improve a vehicle’s fuel efficiency, achieve peak performance and even help avoid major repairs down

Suspension: Deep potholes aren’t friendly to shocks and struts. An inspection to determine wear or leaks can alleviate bigger issues down the road. Other items to have inspected in the spring: Inspect the antifreeze/coolant level, making sure the coolant used meets the specifications listed in the vehicle owner’s manual. Check oil level regularly and change the oil every three months or 3000 miles, whichever comes first, for top performance and longer engine life. Check the transmission fluid for correct level. Watch for leaks that can cause your transmission to fail.

Belts and hoses: Inspect and replace worn or cracked belts, as well as hoses that are blistered, brittle or too soft. Belts and hoses older than five years, even if they look intact, might need to be replaced.

Inspect power steering fluid for proper levels. Low power steering fluid can cause damage to the power steering system and lead to premature power steering failure.

Brakes: A spring checkup can uncover any winter damage. Inspect the brake system, including lines, hoses, and
