DENTAL PATIENTS DRIVE TWO HOURS FROM VICTORVILLE TO SEE LADERA RANCH PAIN-FREE DENTIST DR. MICHAEL TESSIER Recently, a mother called Dr. Michael Tessier’s office to arrange an appointment for her fifteen-yearold daughter who is deathly afraid of shots in her mouth. Only one thing was unusual. They live in Victorville, about two hours away. But the long hot drive was certainly worth it to mom, if her daughter could have painless, shot-free dental work. “I visited Dr.Tessier several years ago before we moved to Victorville” said the child’s mother. “But when I took my fifteen year old daughter to a local dentist out there, she screamed in pain and raised such a fuss and refused to ever go back. I thought she would change her mind, but she would not. Finally, I told her I knew of one dentist that was gentle and pain free but it was a long trip from Victorville to Ladera Ranch. At last she agreed to go”, she said. When they arrived for their appointment with Dr. Tessier, the young girl was crying, sobbing, and shaking, barely in control. Dr. Tessier said; “It took about thirty minutes for her mother and my staff to get her calmed down enough to get her dental work started”, he said, “Very soon using the Whisper Jet, a micro miniature sandblaster using 50 micron-size particles of aluminum oxide, and the Waterlase MD Laser, we got this young lady’s two fillings completed without anesthetic, and with no pain, because of today’s technology. The more I work with the laser and the sandblaster, filling teeth without the need for drilling and therefore anesthetic, the more I realize how much dentistry has changed over the last 30 years. When the drill and the carbide burr were our only cutting options, we made it more likely that, in their later adulthood, these teeth would crack, ultimately needing crowns. Today, we’re leaving these teeth stronger. This stuff is great. So from now on, nothing will be difficult for her, except perhaps the ride from Victorville,” he said with a smile. Dr. Michael Tessier is located in Los Flores Plaza at 28562 Oso Parkway. Most major credit cards and dental plans cheerfully accepted. Telephone (949) 459-7212

Coming off a spectacular victory in Friday’s $10,000 1.35M Jumper Classic, presented by CardFlex, Michelle Parker swept up the competition again in Saturday’s $40,000 Blenheim Spring Classic Grand Prix, presented by Summit General Insurance Agency. With the stands filled, spring in the air and the sun shining, all eyes were on Parker as she guided her fearless 9 year old grey mare, Xel Ha to a double clean effort in a blazing 38.220. A total of 31 horse and rider duos took on the challenge today on the Blenheim EquiSports’ Grand Prix grass field. The demanding course, designed by Benjamin Fernandez (MEX), lead riders over a vertical-oxer double combination, an oxer-verticleoxer triple combination, an optional water jump, and a finish over a wide liverpool oxer. Six riders were able to master the 1st round and qualify for the jump-off. Josephina Nor Lantzman (BRA) and her trusted mount Chello Z had thefirst clear roundof the day and followed up with another flawless effort in the jump-off setting the bar in a time of 40.744. John Pearce (CAN) and Forest View Farm’s Chianto stood up to the challenge and surpassed Nor’s time in 38.830. Michelle Parker then piloted

the 9-year-old Selle Francais mare, Xel Ha, owned by Tula Pinnella, to a quick and concise jump off, cutting corners and galloping between fences to stop the clock and take the lead in 38.220. It came down to Parker’s second mount in the jump off to try and make it a 1-2 finish. Parker guided Cross Creek Farm’s Socrates De

Midos to a fault free jump-off, but stopped the clock in 39.908, good enough for 3rd. Seven of the eight riders were able to go clean in the jump-off, making it a very intense and exciting wrap up to the second week of the Blenheim Spring Classic Series.

Playful, loving cat waiting for Mission Viejo Resident Creates his forever home Logo for Social Justice Summit

The Mission Viejo Animal Services Center has several adorable animals – like Gryffindor – ready for adoption. Gryffindor is a large domestic short-haired brown tabby who is about 3 years old. He is such a handsome boy and is very friendly and playful, but he also likes his alone time. Gryffindor has been at the shelter for quite some time and has won over the hearts of the volunteers and staff. He can be picky when it comes to choosing his canine and feline friends, so he would probably do best in a home with no other pets. Gryffindor will make an excellent addition to that special family. He is patiently waiting to meet you and find his forever home. You can see this loving cat and the other adorable animals ready for adoption at the Mission Viejo Animal Services Center at 28095 Hillcrest or online at For more information, call 949-470-3045.

Mission Viejo resident Brian Littler created the artwork for Cal State Fullerton’s April 14 Social Justice Summit. He incorporated this year’s theme, “Unite to Rise Above Apathy,” in his artwork, which focuses on a human figure rising out and above a sea of ominous liquid. The logo and details about the summit are posted here: Social-Justice-Summit.asp “The liquid represents a veil of apathy that the figure has been living under,” explains Littler. “As the figure is rising, it is searching for ideas, people and answers it can trust.” The welcoming hand of the second figure, extending to help the figure rise, depicts that together, they are empowered and can create a strong and prosperous future for the world. Littler is a graphic designer at an Irvine-based company and produces package designs for car detail products. He earned his bachelor of fine arts degree in art-graphic design at Cal State Fullerton.

After the red carpet arrival, folks were called into the ballroom where they sat for an exquisite dinner starting with a baby spinach salad with baby greens, cranberries, goat cheese, fried shallots served with balsamic vinaigrette. Entrees served were a delectable petite filet with a vegetable wellington with sun-dried tomato vinaigrette, rosemary garlic jus and mushroom risotto. Everyone salivated on the desserts as the choices between bittersweet Chocolate Pot de Crème, Lemon Curd Tart with an almond Frangipani and Crème Fraiche were hard to choose. Kicking off the evening was Jim and Jill Ayres, event chairperson and celebrity dancer of 2010, performing an exquisite encore dance performance.

Aldrich and dancer, Natalie Schultz, Sara Guggenheim Jarrett and dancer, Eddie Alba, Ashley Hickson and dancer, Slawek Roszak, Brett Lawrence and dancer, Melaina Larson, Heidi Miller and dancer, Eric Turcio, Mike Sanchez and dancer, Alessia Minaevaa.

Heidi looked stunning dancing the disco swing putting an elegant touch to her moves while Brett was smokin’ hot and the ladies loved him when he strutted his stuff on his Country Swing, while Michael and Alessia wowed the crowd with a sultry samba. The evening’s top accolades went to Brent Lawrence, “Best Male Dancer” and Sarah Guggenheim Jarrett, “Best Female Dancer”, as well as, “Fan Favorite,” bringing in the greatest amount of community votes/donations.

COACH of the month Rob Sheveland is the Athletes Choice Coach of the Month. He was nominated by Julie Rowland. They first met Rob as the PE teacher at their daughters’ school. The Rowland’s were so impressed with Rob that they asked if he would be interested in teaching private tennis lessons to their girls. Rob has an amazing ability to teach children. All three of their girls look forward to PE days at school and he has connected with the girls in a way that makes exercising fun! The Rowland girls are always excited to share what was taught at school PE and after their tennis lessons. Rob Sheveland is extremely energetic, talented, fun, trust worthy and responsible (and very deserving of a nomination!). Thank you Rob, for caring about the youth in Orange County and congratulations!!

Mission Hospital First in OC to Perform Life-Saving Blood Clot Removal Using Newly-Approved Clot Retrieving Device

Todd Lempert, M.D

Mission Hospital recently became the first hospital in Orange County to successfully use a stroke revascularization device to remove a blood clot from a patient’s brain. Since the initial procedure, the hospital has successfully used the device on two additional patients. The Solitaire FR, the device used in the procedures, was approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) on March 5, 2012, and has the capability of improving stroke outcomes by more effectively extracting clots in a more precise and timely manner. Paul Tyson, one of the first patients to benefit from this new procedure, was deeply concerned after awaking to find he was unable to get out of bed and having difficulties even calling his wife’s name for help. His wife, Cheryl Tyson, quickly realized Paul was showing signs of a stroke and called the ambulance to take him to Mission Hospital, which had started using the Solitaire device just days before. “I think it’s wonderful that Mission Hospital had this procedure available to us,” Cheryl said, “God had a hand in getting us to the right place.” Although Paul had virtually no movement on his left side when he was taken to the hospital, after the procedure, which took less than an hour, he was moving his left arm by lunch-time. The day after the procePage 12

dure, Paul was already up and walking around with his nurses. “I could have been hurt bad,” Paul said, “but I’m feeling pretty normal now.” Todd Lempert, M.D., who performed the procedures, said that the stroke intervention team at Mission Hospital was excited to have this next-generation clot retriever available after the device got FDA approval in early March. “To be the first hospital in Orange County to successfully use this device is a great accomplishment for our team and exemplifies our goal of working together to achieve excellence.” Time is of the essence with the treatment of stroke, especially an ischemic stroke, when a blood vessel that carries oxygen and nutrients to the brain is blocked by a clot. Because these blockages prohibit the brain from receiving the nutrients it needs, neurons begin to die. While prior clot removal procedures could take up to two to three hours, the three recent cases at Mission Hospital were performed in about 30 minutes. Mission Hospital sees hundreds of patients each year that could benefit from the use of the Solitaire FR device, and for patients like Paul Tyson, this new device could have life-saving benefits. “The time saved using this device is crucial for a stroke patient,” said

The Ladera Ranch News

Farzard Massoudi, M.D., medical director of the Neuroscience and Spine Institute at Mission Hospital. “It restores blood flow and essential nutrients to the patient’s brain quicker, which significantly improves the likelihood of a positive outcome.” According to the American Heart Association, stroke is the fourth leading cause of death in the U.S. and a leading cause of long-term disability. “This is good news for the approximately 700,000 people each year in the U.S. who suffer an acute ischemic stroke,” said Stacy Enxing Seng, president, vascular therapies at Covidien, which manufactures the device. “Solitaire FR provides physicians with another important tool for treating this potentially fatal and often debilitating condition.” “We’re one of the few centers in Orange County that has this range in capability,” said Dr. Lempert. “We’re able to handle all levels of complexity when it comes to stroke care – especially with this new tool.” Mission Hospital, part of St. Joseph Health System, offers the region’s most comprehensive neurological and stroke care and was named a Primary Stroke Center by The Joint Commission. Mission Hospital is also an Orange County Emergency Medical Services designated Stroke-Neurology Receiving Center, and the only
