WHO’S BEEN SNOOPED?

to tell you about all their services, fees and how often they can come. They are so proud of their well-managed team of professionals, who actually enjoy their job, and honored that so many have chosen them to take care of their home and business for so many years.

No Housework This Weekend!

I think the part I personally like best about their services is they are so thorough and professional. And, they are licensed, bonded and fully insured. Now the good part, THEY DO WINDOWS! Well, of course they do. But I thought you would enjoy the humor. In addition, they clean counters, stoves, inside and outside of appliances, dust, vacuum, empty trash, dust baseboards, pictures, sills, stair rails, and all furniture. Your glass and mirrors will sparkle and they will even change your bed sheets. This is a ten pointer, as I hate stretching those fitted sheets over the corners.

Well, the 4th of July is just around the corner and the local farmers are bringing in the harvest every day. This is when our famous Brentwood Sweet Corn makes it to our local Safeway, U-pick farm stands of Harvest Time in Brentwood and your dinner table. That, along with our other local fruit and vegetables, it is the perfect time of year to invite your friends and family over for weekend of fun. What a great time to check in on a local business who can get you ready for the crowd. Class Act Cleaning Services has been in this area for 30 years and is family owned and operated. Here at the Monthly Grapevine, we are super excited to have Class Act be this month’s Snoop, because, they are indeed a class act and recommended by many of us here. As soon as you talk to Traci, you know you have made the right choice for your home or office. She will take the time

Another plus, they will even clean your fridge, blinds, tile grout, floors, carpet and did I mention windows? They will even rescreen your screens. And all of this is just your home, how about your business? You can actually grab your brief case and Class Act will take out the trash, dust, vacuum, clean your floors and totally clean the break room and bathroom.

“Start the car!” you are on your way home with no worries. I hope you are considering Class Act at this time, but there is more.

And, finally, they accept all major credit cards. So, Traci Bernal and the entire team of Class Act Cleaning Services, this secret shopper gives you 10 feather dusters for taking such good care of all of us and bringing your professionalism and excellent customer service to the industry.

FOR YOUR DENTAL HEALTH

Ankylosing Spondylitis and Dentistry Oral health is an important part of systemic health. We are beginning to understand more and more links between poor oral health and other diseases of the body, such as, the link between gum disease and respiratory or cardiovascular disease. Recent research has indicated an association between chronic incurable diseases like gum disease and rheumatoid arthritis and ankylosing spondylitis. Anyone who has experienced these types of arthritis firsthand or in a family member or friend understands how life changing it can be. Ankylosing spondylitis is an autoimmune disease, which causes chronic inflammation of the joints, mainly the spine and the pelvis, and can cause eventual fusion of the spine. Men are affected more than women in a ratio of 3:1. It is a very painful condition.

Spondylitis can affect the temporomandibular joint. About 10% of those affected with ankylosing spondylitis experience limited movement of the TMJ. Loss of teeth due to gum disease or cavities can alter the bite leading to further degeneration of the joint. Clenching and grinding teeth can aggravate the TMJ pain as well. The majority of those with TMJ pain achieve relief of symptoms with conservative treatment. Spondylosis can lead to osteoporosis, which can affect bone remodeling leading to loss of teeth and TMJ problems and even jaw fractures. Depending on the degree of osteoporosis activity, rheumatologists or physicians may prescribe bisphosphonate, which prevents bone deterioration. This drug runs a slight risk of causing osteonecrosis (unhealing or crumbling of the bone) if the patient gets a tooth removed. So, it is extremely important for the dentist to know if you ever had to take bisphosphonate therapy. Spondylitis can cause secondary Sjogren’s syndrome that leads to dryness of the eyes and mouth. The salivary glands may get swollen. Dry mouth causes severe tooth decay and gum disease because saliva is important in remineralization of the enamel, which in turn protects the

enamel surface from getting destroyed by the bacteria in the mouth. A strict regimen of oral hygiene is important along with salivary replacement therapy to protect the teeth and the gums. Therefore, your visit to the dentist is important to the health of the rest of the body, not just your teeth and gums and at your initial dental appointment, it is important to discuss your health history with your dentist. Early intervention can lead to appropriate preventative management thereby minimizing negative health consequences of tooth decay or gum disease leading to loss of teeth.

Apollo Dental Care Dr. Sujatha “Sue” Padavettan has had a passion for dentistry since she was very young. So, in 2004, she opened Apollo Dental Care because she felt that opening her own office would be the best way to fulfill that passion. Dr. Padavettan, or Dr. Sue as many of her patients call her, says she is rewarded every day when she sees her service has changed a patient’s life for the better. Their smile of happiness brings them back to the office and she enjoys building personal and long-term relationships with patients. Apollo Dental Care provides gentle, quality dental care for children and adults. Services include general and cosmetic dentistry, teeth whitening, braces, Invisalign, dental implant restorations and much more. Patient comfort and well-being are top priorities at Apollo Dental. As such, they strive to make sure you have a comfortable experience during your dental visit. They specialize in sedation dentistry when needed and offer convenient appointments, including Saturday and evening appointments. New patient and emergency appointments can also be arranged for the entire family. Rightfully so, Dr. Sue and staff are proud of their office, which fully utilizes state of the art equipment. They have a modern sterilization system that surpasses OSHA

requirements. The source of water for their dental units is distilled water (bottled water), which removes any chance of contamination from regular tap water like that used in most dental offices. In addition, they employ the use of digital radiography, which has much less radiation than regular X-rays.

With an eye towards the future, Dr. Padavettan says, “I’d just like to continue to provide the best dental service to the community and to educate them about how important good dental health is for a good healthy life.” She looks forward to welcoming you to the Apollo Dental Care family.

The friendly and competent staff at Apollo Dental Care is dedicated to patient comfort and quality care. They provide the best and latest in dental technology and treatment options, utilizing the best equipment sterilization techniques available to dentists. In addition to general dentistry and cosmetic dentistry, they work with specialists in Periodontics (gum diseases), Implant dentistry, and Endodontics (root canal treatments), as well as other specialists. The whole team emphasizes comprehensive quality care and preventive dentistry. To keep customers coming back, Dr. Sue says she always strives to listen to patient’s needs. “My staff and I try our best in providing exceptional service that exceeds patient expectations,” says Dr. Sue. She goes on to say, “Part of that is providing the flexible hours to make it convenient for patients. And I constantly keep up my knowledge in the latest advancements in the dental industry.” Treating patients like family and the way they would want to be treated has also helped Apollo Dental Care to grow. “My practice has grown mostly by word of mouth and my patients also bring in their family and friends,” says Dr. Sue.

Apollo Dental Care is located at 4530 Balfour Rd., Ste. C in Brentwood they can be reached at 925-634-5061.

5 Ways Gardening And Plants Can Reduce Stress In today’s busy world, we’re continually searching for new ways to slow down and unwind. This has led more people to discover the calming benefits of gardening and how incorporating plants into decor provides a way to reduce everyday stress. Studies have shown that indoor plants clean the air by removing 87 percent of airborne toxins in 24 hours, and can make people more relaxed. In fact, the very act of planting and maintaining a garden provides relaxing stress relief in today’s busy world.

hand. Rosemary, mint, sage and basil thrive in small terra cotta pots on your sunny windowsill. They not only add the finishing touch to a meal or a refreshing drink, but tending your herbs helps to relieve daily stress while enticing you to experiment with new healthy recipes featuring your homegrown harvest. Monitor the air quality with aloe vera plants Most people know about the medicinal properties in aloe vera plants. Most of us have slathered some on after getting a sunburn. In addition, they’re great for purifying the air. They can also serve as a monitor of air quality because they will display brown spots if something isn’t quite right. Aloe vera thrives in sunny spaces and at room temperature, so make sure to position it near an interior window to help maintain a healthy plant.

Offices and cubes can be some pretty sterile spaces, which can make it hard to stay motivated or feel content during the work day. There are a million and one reasons for putting a plant in your office, and because you need to focus on the work at hand, you need a stressfree plant. When it comes to caring for a plant, it doesn’t get much easier than a snake plant. These beautiful plants grow in a wide-range of lighting conditions and at any normal room temperature. They offer a low-maintenance boost of zen, producing oxygen and, because sometimes you go on vacation, can go weeks without water.

Add a fiddle leaf fig to your living room With large, waxy green leaves that look like a fiddle, the photogenic fiddle leaf fig adds a stunning pop of green to any living space. The trees thrive in bright to medium light and prefer room temperatures. Water them only when the surface of the soil is dry or when the leaves start to wilt; you’ll know your tree is happy when its leaves are perked up toward the sun.

What Happens to my NonTrust Assets After I am Gone? If you have established a Revocable Living Trust, you have two (2) types of assets: Trust assets (assets held in the name of the Trust) and non-Trust assets (assets that have been intentionally or unintentionally excluded from the Trust). In general, once you die, the terms of your Trust will dictate how your Trust assets will be distributed. But what happens to your non-Trust assets? Some assets are intentionally excluded from a Revocable Living Trust including, but not limited to, retirement accounts (IRAs, 401ks, etc.) and life insurance policies. Upon your death, these assets will be distributed to your designated beneficiaries. However, complications arise if you have not designated beneficiaries. For example, if you have a $500,000 retirement account and you

Going Green: Seeing the Light If you want to be ecofriendly and want to help the environment, yet worry that making changes in your home will be costly or inconsequential, think about lighting. Making-energy efficient home improvements doesn’t have to mean sweeping changes. You can help do your share to go green and creating a better carbon footprint for your house by taking a first step and start changing out your lights. Recent studies have reported that 80% of homebuyers identify energy savings and comfortable surroundings as key factors when deciding between listings, so more agents today are working with home sellers on innovative energy, environmental and ecological approaches and opportunities for selling the home. One simple and easy change concerns the lighting in your house. Today’s green

do not designated beneficiaries, then this retirement account may need to be probated! Some assets are unintentionally excluded from a Revocable Living Trust. We have met with many clients tell us that there house is in their trust. However, when we pull their grant deed, we discover that the house is not in their Trust. (Note: this occasionally occurs if you refinanced your home and your lender required you to transfer your home out of your Trust). Real property that has been unintentionally excluded from your Trust may need to be probated! There are certain exceptions to this general rule, however, fixing this mistake can be very costly and time consuming to your beneficiaries.

used to transfer real property. Additionally, using these Affidavits can be difficult as some financial institutions are reluctant to accept them, which can make the transfer cumbersome and time consuming. When preparing your estate plan, think carefully about your Trust assets and non-Trust assets. Make sure to carefully consider how your non-Trust assets will be transferred to your beneficiaries following your death. If you are concerned about a particular asset, you should consult with an attorney to ensure that your assets will easily and seamlessly transfer from you to your beneficiaries following your passing.

During a trust administration, we sometimes discover that some assets were: 1) never transferred to the Trust; and 2) did not have designated beneficiaries. The legal question becomes, how do we transfer the asset from your name to your beneficiaries or legal heirs? In California, if the total value of all non-Trust assets is $150,000 or less, we can use an Affidavit for Collection of Personal Property to transfer the assets to those individuals who have a legal right to inherit the assets. However, these Affidavits CANNOT be

lighting isn’t limited to the fluorescent light bulbs to which most people have quickly adapted. There are plenty of other options including LED gaining in popularity as a viable and affordable home-lighting source.

Energy-efficient lighting can also be used in exterior fixtures of the home as well, such as around any deck, pool, patio or garden. These low-energy emitting lights are perfect complements to any outdoor features you want to show off.

LED is a energy-efficient, semi-conducting light source that started growing in popularity in 2007. In the past, LED lighting appeared as unattractive blue hues but today’s LED lighting offers the same bright white output or a warm color option that was the staple of incandescent lighting. LED light now come in all shapes and sizes including chandelier faux flames lights and four foot tubes to retrofit your garage fixtures. You buy a retrofit for your can lights or recessed lighting that is a simply switch out. LED lighting can also be used as a tool in some areas of the home that will better showcase features when one looks around. From track lighting over the fireplace to undercounter cabinet lighting to can lighting in the hall, LED fixtures can cast dramatic light on your home’s best features.

Taking advantage of these modern lights will not only let you help the environment, but it may benefit your pocketbook as well.

There are plenty of other benefits as well. LED lighting uses 75% less electricity than the standard incandescent light bulbs, and LED bulbs last 50 times longer than standard bulbs, saving you money.
