WHO’S BEEN SNOOPED?

sterilization equipment available to dentists. In addition to general dentistry and cosmetic dentistry, they work with specialists in Pariodontics, Implant Dentistry and Endodontic and other specialists. They focus on comprehensive care, quality and preventive dentistry.

A Healthy Smile is a Call Away! It is the third week in May and with Memorial Day only one week away, the beautiful farmlands are finished with the cherry blossoms and filled with those tiny little cherries waiting for the 100,000 plus visitors to come enjoy this years harvest. Off on assignment, I am about to find out why Alpha Dental is the place to go. Conveniently located in Antioch on Lone Tree Way, Dr. Paul Lee is easily accessible via all major roads and boasts about their state of the art equipment. Now don’t stop reading because you hate the dentist, I think you will find that this office and staff really do bring the word “gentle” into the equation. Not only are the friendly and accommodating, they offer the best and latest in dental technology and treatment options. They provide dental care for the entire family and are proud to utilize the best

Ok, now you can go to the website and find out the real difference with Alpha Dental and other offices. They educate their patients about their treatment options and health issues. This counts ten points with me. Show me a picture, give me the details on what is going to happen and what it is going to cost. I personally would rather do my research before I walk in the door rather than looking through the pretty binder with all the pictures as I sit their breaking a sweat while waiting for them to call my name. This website explains everything from the diagnostic exam to pictures and detailed information on dental crowns. I have four crowns and had no idea how that all came about. Dr. Lee is “committed to your dental health for a lifetime”. He and his staff are dedicated to their profession and are kind, friendly and caring. When talking with them about Alpha Dental, they always refer to their mission to ensure a pleasant experience during your visit

to the office. They offer free cosmetic consultation and second opinions. They offer implant restoration, mercury-free fillings, minimal radiation with digital x-ray and they are open Saturdays. With their ad, you can take advantage of a free One Hour In-Office Professional Whitening upon completion of patient exam, x-ray and cleaning. Just like I said, affordable, friendly and informative. So Dr. Lee, this secret shopper gives you 10 new toothbrushes for offering convenient, friendly and comfortable dentistry to Contra Costa County. The Monthly Grapevine encourages our readers to tell them the snoop sent you when you call to make your appointment. Who will be snooped next? It could be you.

Alpha Dental can be reached at 925706-0500 or visit their website at LeeAlphaDental.com.

so let your Realtor shop with you. It is not an inconvenience for them, it is their job.

upgrades to purchase for resale.

When Buying a New Construction Home, Use A Realtor! Did you know that you can be represented by your own agent when you purchase a New Home? With new home construction going strong you may not think it is necessary to involve a real estate professional in a transaction where the buyer can deal directly with the builder. Think again! The builder’s agent is representing the builder’s best interest. As your buyer’s agent, a Realtor can guide you along the right path, smooth the rough places and help ensure you make a decision you can live with (and in) for many years. As your agent, the Realtor is representing your best interests. Your agent can suggest builders based on their reputation for delivering a high-quality product, responding quickly to issues, and being ďŹ nancially sound. Your agent may be familiar with how a builder prices his products and where there may be room to negotiate price, additional items the builder may be willing to sweeten the deal with and help with which

Your agent can assist you as you face hundreds of design choices and consider which upgrades provide the best value in terms of resale and whether to upgrade from an outside vendor. The upgrades or options available will vary from builder to builder and the choices you make will depend largely on personal decisions. Often a buyer can pay far less after the home is built by contracting with a third party but price is not always the only consideration. You need to consider the convenience, cosmetic ramiďŹ cations and if it is even feasible to perform after the home is built.

By now, you should be convinced of a real estate professional’s value as you search and purchase a new construction home. Still, here’s one more great reason to work with an agent—the builder pays the agent’s commission. You enjoy individual attention and support at NO cost to you. What a great way to start life in a new home!

The lender approval process may go smoother if your agent schedules visits, accompanies you to lenders, and helps expedite required documents. When relocating to a new area, your agent can be a particularly valuable resource. In addition to providing local area information regarding schools, day care, elder care services, medical ofďŹ ces and doctors, public transportation, proposed development, and so on. Once construction is under way, your agent can periodically stop by the work site, supply you with progress reports, and photograph various phases of the construction. REMEMBER the builder will require your agent to accompany you on your ďŹ rst visit to the site,

Julie Ann defends employers against wrongful termination, harassment, discrimination and wage and hour issues in state and federal courts, at administrative hearings, and at arbitrations and mediations. Her analytic and strategic mind allows Julie Ann to immediately spot issues and build a comprehensive plan to affect resolution. In addition to defending litigation cases on behalf of employers, Julie Ann also provides advice and counsel to employers regarding leaves of absence, compliance with wage and hour issues, discipline and termination process, drug testing, and workplace violence issues. Because of her compassion and personal investment in her client’s experience, Julie Ann quickly establishes trust with clients. Julie Ann believes treating others with dignity, respect, and honesty is the key to a lasting relationship. After leaving the “big firm� atmosphere, Julie Ann opened her own office, continuing in her representation of employers. Joining Ferber Law as Of Counsel, Julie Ann brings with her years of experience from one of the largest multi-national, global law firms that exclusively represents employers. Julie Ann recently relocated back to the East Bay, her childhood home. She is excited to be a part of the ever-changing landscape of California employment law.
