Introducing Everything Homez Magazine
Publisher Derrick Breaux Director of Business Development Jessica Breaux Associate Editors Lainey Kral Randi Cantrell Shyanne Lopez
ZCOD E MAGA ZINE’ S
t would be nearly impossible for me to say how many times people ask me if I know of a good contractor. A good painter. A solar company to call for an estimate. A handyman. A flooring company. A plumber. The list goes on and on. Everyone that knows me understands that I like to build stuff – or have stuff built for me when possible. As a kid growing up in EVERYTHING Texas, that’s just what people did. If a family HOMEZ MAGAZINE member needed to add a room onto their house, the entire family got together for a couple of months in the afternoons after their day jobs and built the room addition. I grew up thinking that everyone knew how to build stuff. It wasn’t until I moved out to Southern California as a teenager that I realized that this wasn’t the “norm” everywhere. When I talked to people about my experience helping to install a roof on my uncle’s house as a young teenager, I think most people thought I was making it up. For the past couple of years, I have been talking to 92130 Magazine readers about this issue. Everyone seemed to agree that it is often difficult to find reliable contractors, home-related products, and Derrick Breaux similar services. The general consensus was that it would be extremely Publisher convenient to have a section within the pages of this magazine that focused specifically on the home. So, today I am proud to officially introduce to you Everything Homez Magazine – a magazine within the pages of 92130 Magazine (see page 61). The goal of Everything Homez is to provide you with information on all types of products and services related to the home improvement industry. The Everything Homez section will be in every issue moving forward. You can expect to see the number of pages grow as businesses that fall within the “homez” category commit to participating – it is destined to become the ultimate ‘go-to’ resource for home improvement. Our ZCode Media team will be working diligently to seek out additional businesses in all subcategories of Everything Homez. However, if you know of a great company that fits in this category that you would like to refer, please send them our way. It’s always good to work with companies that come highly recommended by you! If you have a home improvement project in the works, please check out Everything Homez to see if there is a local company that can assist. GUID E TO EVER YTHIN G

as a part of their everyday learning. Wherever life’s journey takes our boys, if they can speak multiple languages, then they can connect with a greater number of people,” related Maryam Davodi-Far. Maryam, a professor at National University, and David, who works for a Fortune 500 company, met in the mid-1990s while
working at UCSD’s School of Medicine. Both Maryam and David have a passion for learning and continuing their educations. Maryam holds a doctorate degree in public administration and is currently a psychotherapist-in-training, working on her licensure.

In addition to school, work, and volunteer endeavors, the DavodiFar-Wu family enjoys spending time with one another. “We keep our calendar manageable and do not overcommit ourselves. Evenings throughout the week are set aside for family time, homework, and time to rest. We take a break from cooking during the weekends and enjoy going to some of our favorite restaurants,” stated Maryam. The family also attends meetings and events for the San Diego Bonsai Club, enjoys gem and rock collecting, traveling, and spending time at Torrey Pines State Beach, their favorite San Diego area beach.

A Novel Idea CARMEL VALLEY HIGH SCHOOL STUDENT PUBLISHES HER SECOND BOOK photo by ZEENA GREGG PHOTOGRAPHY
resident and young author Sahana Kumar has released the second installment in her fantasy series, The Champion of Zairon. The sequel, titled The Rain of Blood, is a follow-up of her premiere novel, The Cave of Mystic Dreams. The series follows three heroes on a fantastical quest to save Earth. Along the way, they encounter heart-stopping dangers, challenges, and monsters at every turn. Sahana’s books are aimed at readers ranging from elementary to high school age. Sahana, a ninth-grader, has wanted to be a writer since her elementary schools days and has done all that she could to make her dreams a reality, with the help of her supportive family. “I always loved reading, even when I was very small, and I think after a while writing became a natural extension of that. For the longest time, I was under this impression that kids couldn’t write books,” Sahana explained. “I think one day in fourth grade it just kind of struck me like ‘Hey, maybe I can do this too,’ and that same day I picked up a pen and started to write.” She was inspired to continue honing her writing skills by her parents and sister. “My family is amazingly, incredibly supportive. Almost more than I would have thought possible,” said Sahana. “Neither of my parents are writers but from the beginning they have been the biggest supporters of my writings. They both work really hard on making sure my books come out looking as professional as possible.” For now,
Sahana will continue to work toward completing her book trilogy. Her current books are available in paperback, hardcover, and ebook form. For more information visit www.spkumarbooks.com.

Balance Student Star Emily Kogan Blends a Passion for Science With a Love of the Arts and Community Involvement by KELLEY GUSICH | photo by Zeena Gregg Photography
t 11, Emily Kogan moved from New Jersey to Carmel Valley. Her favorite thing about the area is its proximity to everything. A sophomore at CCA, Emily loves how her teachers have pushed her and made her more interested in pursuing her studies, but as far as subjects go, she loves the sciences the most. “I love learning about genetics especially,” she said. “I think it’s amazing that a whole human being comes out of a code of DNA made up of only four main building blocks!” This summer Emily attended the Congress of Future Scientists and Technologists in Boston. She got a chance to hear from many successful scientists, including Nobel Laureates, entrepreneurs, inventors, and researchers. The speech she found most relevant was given by scientist and researcher Dr. J. Craig Venter – a fellow San Diegan. His genetics research really struck her. “My mouth was hanging open the whole time!” she exclaimed. “I want to make equally monumental additions to the fields of science and technology.”

Aside from her studies, Emily loves to have fun. She’s part of the prestigious dance program at CCA, currently in the advanced class. “I absolutely love to perform!” She’s also vice president of the Pennies 4 Pets club at school and volunteers with the Helen Woodward Animal Shelter. Her perfectionistic tendencies and curiosity keep her busy and happy. She taught herself how to edit videos over the summer and learned to code in Java. This resulted in her making some funny short movies of penguins dancing. She also is learning to animate pictures just by writing code. “I’m just curious about how everything works,” Emily laughed, “and love learning new interesting facts or tidbits.” She’d like to thank her parents, school teachers, gymnastics coaches, and dance teachers “for shaping me into the person I am today and pushing me to always be motivated in everything I do.” Emily hopes for a future in biomedicine and genetics. “I find it fascinating,” she shared, “and I believe you can really help people and humanity through studying science.” Emily would like to share this advice with other students: “I know a lot of you feel the pressure to know exactly what you want to do in life, get perfect grades, and things like that. My advice is just to find what you like and stick with it – but be a kid while you can!”

Surgeon Gives Back 92130 RESIDENT AND ORAL SURGEON DONATES TIME AND SKILLS TO NO-COST SURGERIES
ongtime Carmel Valley resident Dr. Robert Ferdowsmakan is not only the founder and medical director of his own oral and maxillofacial surgical practice but also a devoted philanthropist. Robert lends his knowledge and skills to Fresh Start Surgical Gifts, a nonprofit medical organization that provides no-cost surgical services to children and young adults who were born with abnormalities, have sustained trauma, or have been victims of neglect or abuse. Robert’s partnership with Fresh Start began five years ago when an oral surgery colleague told him about their mission. He has been actively involved with the nonprofit ever since and helps perform surgeries every six weeks. “My favorite part of being associated with Fresh Start Surgical Gifts is the ability to provide the surgical services that I was trained in while making a real long-term change in a young person’s life,” shared Robert. “One weekend of my time may possibly result in the lifelong betterment of a disadvantaged child and his or her family. It is an easy decision for me to make.” The nonprofit is located on the Rady Children’s Hospital campus, with an official Fresh Start clinic having been built several years go. While surgeries are performed in Rady Children’s operating rooms, pre- and post-operative patient evaluations are performed in the designated clinic. Of his future with the organization, Robert said, “I plan to be with Fresh Start Surgical Gifts for years to come. I really believe in what they are doing for the community and for families. Fresh Start gives families hope for the future and that is a powerful tool.” For more information on Fresh Start’s services and programs visit www.freshstart.org.

Sanity-Saving Tips for Parents
by KIRSTEN STARR, M.D.; Private Internal Medicine Center, Scripps Clinic
Parenting is one of the most rewarding jobs in the world, but it can also be stressful and exhausting. Fortunately, there are ways to stay calm, sane, and stress-free in the midst of normal family chaos. These nine tips should help you recharge: Drink plenty of water. Mild dehydration can affect your body before you realize you are thirsty. Lack of water can cause headaches, fatigue, and lack of energy. Stay away from junk food. When you’re tired and hungry, it’s easy to reach for unhealthy snacks, but don’t neglect your diet. As a general rule, try to eat something every two to four hours, and select low-calorie snacks, such as nuts, fruit, and cut-up veggies. An expanding waistline will only add to your stress and your mood swings.
Get out of the house. Even if you are exhausted, go outside for a rejuvenating walk because fresh air and exercise can help put everything in perspective. Let out your creative self. Create something each day, even if it is just an idea or dream. This will help you stay connected to yourself. Ask for support. Don’t be afraid to reach out to others for support, even if that is as simple as calling a friend or checking out a blog. Arrange for a babysitting swap with friends, or ask a trusted family member to watch the little ones while you exercise or get some sleep. Laugh. Laughter is good for you and your family. Laughter reduces your stress by increasing the endorphins to your brain and relaxing your muscles. It should be easy to find humor in the antics of your little ones. Be grateful. Try writing down three things every day for which you are thankful. Having an attitude of gratitude provides perspective and brings you to the present. Take time for yourself. Understand that you most likely won’t finish everything on your “To Do” list – ever. So take time each day to do

something you like and that brings you joy. Some parents wake up before the family to read and enjoy a cup of uninterrupted coffee or tea. You may choose to carve out some time to meditate, take a bath, or simply listen to music. Play with your kids. Have some stress relievers you can do with your children, such as drawing, blowing bubbles, dancing, and playing with pets. Stroking the cat, feeding hay to the bunny, playing catch at the park with the dog, or even watching fish glide in an aquarium can reduce stress and can also teach your children to care for others. Raising a family has its challenges, but learning to relax and giving up the idea of perfection will let you and your children enjoy the ride, bumps and all.
Kirsten Starr, M.D., provides concierge medical services at the Private Internal Medicine Center (PIMC) at Scripps Clinic in Carmel Valley.

hari Sanchez loves the 92130 community. “I enjoy living here for many reasons,” said Shari. “With nearperfect weather and year-round sunshine, it’s a great place to raise my daughter. We have the best beaches, amazing schools, and a real sense of community.” It’s the affection she feels for her community that motivated Shari to volunteer for some local organizations. “I became involved with Del Mar Carmel Valley Sharks when my daughter began playing recreational soccer nine years ago,” recounted Shari. “I feel my biggest accomplishment was this past October when I was proud to be the lead on the Del Mar Carmel Valley Sharks annual Sharks in the Park, an approximate 2,800-person event where the club provides a festival environment while teams are

taking pictures and fundraising is being done.” Her most recent volunteer efforts began last year when her daughter Sydney started middle school and Shari started lending her time to Carmel Valley Middle School. “Whenever help is needed at Carmel Valley Middle School I always make myself available,” stated Shari. “Selling PE clothes the first week of school or handing out info for red ribbon week.” It was around this same time that Shari learned of another organization: Female Athlete Volunteers (FAV), a locally-based teen organization connecting female athletes with volunteer opportunities to support the community. “FAV was started by two young ladies from Carmel Valley and it has turned into a program of more than 100 girls from seventh grade through high school who do a variety of volunteering

within San Diego and Carmel Valley,” described Shari. “Taking a car-load of seventh and eighth graders to play bingo with senior citizens or assembling and passing out over 700 burritos to homeless people downtown is very rewarding.” This past spring, Shari was asked by FAV to do a fundraiser for a local teen with cystic fibrosis. “With the money we raised,” she explained, “this helped send this young lady on her wish of a European vacation.” Volunteering is clearly a significant part of Shari’s life, but perhaps even more important is her wish to be a positive influence on her daughter. “I believe in giving back when I can,” shared Shari. “When my daughter sees me volunteering, she sees that I care. The importance of paying it forward is something I want her to understand.”

Chef: Megan Wilson Family: Family is very important to me, which is one of the reasons I fit in so well here at Ohana Cupcakes. Hobbies/Interests: I have such a sweet tooth which is one of the biggest reasons I started baking in the first place. Because I love eating sweets so much, a hobby of mine is to stay as active as possible by going on hikes, hitting the slopes, or swimming. Anything outside and I am up for it. Favorite Local Activity: I just moved here from a small town in Colorado and one of my favorite things to do is go to the beach. I guess that’s because the closest thing to a beach in Colorado is a lake. I’ve been living here for less than a month so I still have so much exploring to do. About the Recipe: As much as I love challenging myself with exciting new techniques, this recipe is super fun and easy, which is why I enjoy baking this cupcake so much. This cupcake is perfect for Valentine’s Day, but I would honestly eat it year-round. About the Chef: I have wanted to move to California for some time now to start my career and grow as a chef and I finally did it! Moving here was sudden, actually, and I am still adjusting. I honestly just feel like I’m on a vacation. A year ago in May I graduated from Colorado Mesa University with degrees in Culinary Arts and Pastry Arts. During my time in college I realized that I loved both cooking and baking but I definitely had more of a passion for pastry arts. I am excited to be part of the “Ohana family” and look forward to many more Ohana creations in the future. 92130 residents Mark and Susan McKenna are the proud proprietors of Ohana Cupcakes.

SCIENCE of DENTAL IMPLANT DENTISTRY the
by Tarkan Sidal, DDS, MD
dental implant is an artificial titanium fixture that is placed surgically into the jaw bone to substitute for a missing tooth and its roots. There are different types of dental implants ranging from blade to cylinder to screw type, with the screw type being the most commonly accepted design nowadays. Titanium is the ninth most abundant metal on Earth. It has a light weight, is resistant to corrosion, and is biocompatible with living tissue. Swedish surgeon Dr. Per-Ingvar Branemark discovered that when titanium makes contact with living bone tissue, they grow together to form a permanent adhesion. He named this process osseointegration. Osseointegration – defined as direct structural and functional connection between ordered, living bone and the surface of a load carrying implant – belongs to the category of primary bone healing. Right after implant placement, the inflammatory bone healing phase takes place. This is followed by the proliferative phase where
initial bone, known as woven bone, is formed four to six weeks after the implant placement surgery. This bone is low in density but forms rapidly. The third phase is the maturation phase, where osteoid type bone deposited. Loading the implant (using the implant) stimulates transformation from woven bone to lamellar bone. This bone is the weight-bearing bone that is formed; lastly, the resorption and remodeling phase occurs throughout the lifetime of the implant. The implant complex is composed of multitudes of structures: bone tissue, implant, abutment, abutment screw, prosthetic superstructure, retention screw, esthetic facing, chewing surface. Bone tissue, placement of implant, and generally the healing abutment is dealt with by a surgeon or the implant placing practitioner; the rest of the structures are dealt with by the restoring dentist. Your surgeon and restoring dentist work together to provide the best coordinated care. Most people are candidates for dental implants except for a small group of patients who are compromised medically and/or
dentally, demonstrating delayed healing such as immunosuppression, antimetabolic treatment, or uncontrolled diabetes. It takes time for dental implant dentistry to take place due to the rules of the physiology of osseointegration. Conventionally, after a tooth is extracted, with or without bone grafting, it takes about three to four months until the site is ready for the actual implant placement. This time period might slightly vary depending on the quality of the patient’s existing bone quality. Following the dental implant placement, roughly another four months is needed for osseointegration of the titanium to the native bone due to laws of bone physiology. Then the patient’s restoring dentist works on the actual delivery of the crown, which is the only visible portion of this complex. There are also other variations of treatment in regards to dental implant placement and bone grafting, these are discussed on a case by case basis with a patient’s restoring dentist and surgeon working together to reach a customized outcome at the patient’s best interest.

:::: COMMUNITY STUFF Local Student Honored by CNN
Isaiah Granet is making 92130 proud with the national recognition he has received for his work with The San Diego Chill, the nonprofit he founded in 2013. A 10th grader at Pacific Ridge School, Isaiah was given the title of CNN Heroes Young Wonder during a tribute recently broadcasted live from New York City. He was brought on stage by CNN’s Anderson Cooper to receive a standing ovation from a star-studded crowd. The San Diego Chill’s mission is to provide children ages seven to 13 with developmental disabilities, such as autism or Down syndrome, with the opportunity to learn to skate and play ice hockey as part of a team. “I wanted to give back to my community,” Isaiah explained. “As an avid hockey player, I was stunned when I realized there were kids who would never have the opportunity to experience the sport I love.” The program is free for all participants, made possible by donations and volunteers.

RAPA’s Winter Wonderland Showcase
The Royal Academy of Performing Arts (RAPA) recently produced their Winter Wonderland 2015 performances during the holiday season at the Mandeville Auditorium in La Jolla. The matinee and evening performances were enjoyed by 1,500 attendees. The Winter Wonderland showcase consisted of two main sequences: The Nutcracker ballet followed by RAPA’s dance company showcase. Combined, the ballet and showcase added up to a two hour experience, featuring high-quality and professional choreography, scenery, costumes, and backdrops. “The talent, choreography, and professional organization on display made me very, very proud,” said RAPA Owner and Director Francine Garton. “Our fantastic faculty did a remarkable job once again and our dancers were superb.” Some of the evening’s proceeds benefited The Monarch School for Homeless Children and Rady Children’s Hospital.

Giving Back to Military Families
Dance Hearts, a nonprofit created by North Coast DanceArts, Inc. dancers and their families, invited the community to join them in being a part of The Big Thank You 2015. The annual event is put on every year by the Bells of Freedom program and serves military families that face financial challenges during the holiday season. The program provides an opportunity for supporters to sponsor a military family that is in need of an emotional, spiritual, or financial helping hand for the season. The Big Thank You 2015 delivered food and goods to Marine and Navy families at Camp Pendleton in early December. Ultimately, more than 750 people were fed during the event and over 85 families were sponsored, receiving holiday gifts from Santa and those who donated time and funds to the cause.

Twenty Carmel Valley residents recently took to the stage in J*Company’s production of Seussical, Jr. Each performer contributed their skills to help make up a cast of talented young actors. The show was a colorful, comedic take on Dr. Seuss’s classic characters, featuring Horton the Elephant, the Cat in the Hat, and other reader favorites.“There was always a lesson to be learned in Dr. Seuss’s books,” said Artistic Director Joey Landwehr. “And those lessons are still relevant, if not more so, in today’s world. We’re proud to have our talented cast of kids presenting these lessons.” Seussical, Jr. opened in mid-January and ran throughout the rest of the month.

Now, their club meets two days a week to conduct math-themed lessons and activities with 30 middle school students. In addition to the math club on their campus, Linette and Rachel have become organizers for the San Diego Middle School Math Field Day. Any local middle school student can sign up to participate through their school. “Organizing Math Field Day allowed us an opportunity to give back to our community as a whole and leave a greater mark on the San Diego math community,” said Linette and Rachel. Learn more at www.sdmathfieldday.com.
92130 resident and business woman Melissa Cizauskas founded the Bay Club Women’s Entrepreneurs Networking Group to allow local women from all fields and professions to educate and inspire each other while making lifelong friendships. The idea behind the group came to Melissa after speaking with women she saw on a regular basis, but rarely had the chance to talk to. “We get so busy day-to-day that, although we often see the same people in our wonderful Carmel Valley Del Mar area, we don’t really take the time to know one another,” said Melissa. Now, the networking group meets on the first and third Tuesday of each month from 8:30 to 9:30 a.m. at the Bay Club of Carmel Valley. During meetings, each member takes turns sharing new information with the group, with an opportunity for open networking at the end. Often, the club is treated to guest speakers. The club also holds events outside the meetings that are open to women from surrounding communities. To learn more contact Melissa at 858-353-6985.

Where can you get some quality time with man’s best friend? If your four-legged friend could talk, he would most definitely thank you for taking him out to get some fresh air at 92130’s Torrey Pines Dog Park. There’s nothing better than playing some catch and making new friend with canines and their human companions. The park itself is very large and offers two different sections: one made of dirt and the other, grass. While your dog may come home with a little dirt on his paws, he’ll be happily tuckered-out.

ong-time local Marlene Nadler-Moodie’s life story was on the traditional trajectory – career, husband, kids. Originally from New York, Marlene worked as a psychiatric nurse in Manhattan where she met her husband in 1978. The couple married in 1981 and moved cross country two years later, first to La Costa and then shortly after to Carmel Valley. The friendliness of the people and the small town feel, Marlene acknowledged, is what she loves most about 92130. As the first family in their neighborhood, Marlene recalled, “There was no landscaping at that time. Our sons rode their little tricycles across all the backyards between homes and construction.” Their sons, alumni of Torrey Pines High School, are successful adults today. Justin is an art teacher in Menlo Park, having just returned from three years of teaching in Mexico City. Brett recently passed the California Law Bar and is an attorney in Los Angeles. Marlene’s professional path was one she determined long ago. “I wanted to be a nurse, having been inspired by a book I read in third grade, and I never deviated from that goal,” she shared. “I was drawn to psychiatry during my clinical rotation as a student. After witnessing some less than humane practices, I wanted to make a change.” Today she is a clinical nurse specialist in psychiatric nursing. Her husband has been a psychiatrist at Kaiser for over 30 years. But Marlene’s life was turned upside down in 2012 when she was diagnosed with stage 3B lung cancer. “I felt well and healthy, exercising daily, traveling, all things were as usual until a small, dry cough led me to see my physician,” Marlene explained. “We were completely blindsided.” She moved quickly into chemotherapy and radiation. “During this time I came to learn about the stigma against lung cancer and could make the comparison to the stigma against mental illness – the field I work in,” Marlene acknowledged. The experience led Marlene to the national nonprofit organization called Free to Breathe. The group is committed to make surviving lung cancer the expectation rather than the exception. Every August, Marlene participates in the San Diego Free to Breathe 5K Run/Walk to help raise money and awareness for the cause. As for Marlene’s future goals, she has a short but important list: “Live life to the fullest, continue to travel, enjoy my family and friends, and continue to be a productive professional.”

Cathedral Catholic High School Continues a Strong Legacy of Faith, Character, and Achievement by LAINEY KRAL | photos provided by Cathedral Catholic High School
athedral Catholic High School’s (CCHS) core values of faith, knowledge, character, and responsibility have guided the development of high-achieving, well-rounded leaders for over 50 years. The CCHS legacy has deep roots, though the name is only 10 years old. Cathedral Girls High School merged with University San Diego High School (UNI) in 1970 on UNI’s Linda Vista Campus. UNI transitioned to the current CCHS Campus in Carmel Valley in 2005 and took on the new name of Cathedral Catholic High School. “No matter what campus you were on, once you become a Don, you’re always a Don,” said CCHS President Mr. Stevan Laaperi. “The Dons’ legacy has never been stronger. Over 80 alumni are among the CCHS team of administrators, faculty, coaches, and staff.” The professional staff is well qualified to uphold that legacy. Most teachers have a master’s degree or higher in the subject they teach, and the entire staff strives to model the values of a Catholic faith community. The school is accredited by the Western Catholic Educational Association and the Western Association of Schools and Colleges, and holds membership with the College Board. “In partnership with parents,
we form an educational ministry that is mutually supportive and a community committed to excellence,” said Principal Mr. Kevin Calkins. “It is our intent that our graduates carry a spirit of intellectual curiosity and a love of learning on their continuing journey of personal and spiritual growth.” Over 1,600 students are currently beginning that journey on the dynamic CCHS campus. Facilities include 75 classrooms, 12 science labs, two computer labs, a robotics lab, a ceramics studio, a music room, a lecture hall, several special-use classrooms, world-class athletic facilities, a library, a lecture hall, a chapel and meditation garden – there’s a place for every student to discover their passion. Over 70 percent of CCHS students participate in one or more of the school’s 80-plus teams. “Whether you are an athlete, love to act, or have a passion for serving others, at Cathedral Catholic you gain the confidence to make a difference not only in your life but in the world around you,” said Kate, a student in the Class of 2017. Nicole, a recent graduate, agreed: “There is an unparalleled wealth of opportunities, and a strong support system in the students and faculty as part of the Catholic community.”

A SIGNATURE SMILE Signature Orthodontics Creates Beautiful Smiles for Happy Patients by LAINEY KRAL | photos provided by Signature Orthodontics
he enthusiastic Signature Orthodontics team is dedicated to giving community members something to smile about. “Signature Orthodontics was founded in 2012 in order to bring great orthodontics with a commitment to excellent customer service to the people of 4S Ranch,” said Dr. John Jerome, the practice’s owner. Dr. Jerome is a Board Certified Orthodontist and a graduate of the University of Southern California School of Dentistry. He served as an active duty dental officer in the United States Navy and in the Navy Reserves. Signature Orthodontics offers complimentary consultations and provides a wide range of services, including Invisalign, Clear Braces, Damon Braces, traditional braces, digital impressions, and accelerated orthodontics. The practice serves adults, teenagers, and children age seven or older. “Every child should have their first orthodontic visit at age seven,” said Dr. Jerome. “This is when the permanent teeth are erupting and the bite is taking shape.” Dr. Jerome’s emphasis on continuing education for himself and the entire team
means Signature Orthodontics excels at helping patients find their smile. “People who want a beautiful smile done with ease and efficiency choose Signature Orthodontics,” said Dr. Jerome. “We offer the utmost customer service and attention to detail.” Signature Orthodontics also stays up-to-date with the latest technologies and highest quality materials. “Because of our commitment to our patients’ orthodontic experiences, we use only the highest quality dental materials,” said Dr. Jerome. “We feel that with better dental materials come greater treatment efficiency and improved aesthetics, comfort, and results.” The easy, comfortable experience begins before patients even set foot in the office – the convenient location offers plenty of parking. Once inside, Dr. Jerome explained, “At Signature Orthodontics we pride ourselves on having no wait times.” The atmosphere is fun, clean, and relaxed. The talented team makes sure patients are involved and educated at every step of treatment, taking any uncertainty out of the
“PEOPLE WHO WANT A BEAUTIFUL SMILE DONE WITH EASE AND EFFICIENCY CHOOSE SIGNATURE ORTHODONTICS.”

:::: IN OUR OWN BACKYARD
Local Nonprofits are Working to Keep Our Backyard Beautiful – And So Can You by LAINEY KRAL
uring the first few months of 2016, many of us are making commitments to improve our daily lives – whether that means organizing our homes, getting outside more, or prioritizing time with our friends and families. It’s the perfect time to get together and turn that motivation towards cleaning up our coastline as well. San Diego is famously known as America’s Finest City, and we earned that nickname in no small part thanks to our gorgeous beaches. Locals and tourists alike flock to our shores almost year-round. This level of human activity can leave its mark, but luckily we also have a number of organizations dedicated to removing litter and preserving our environment. While we wait for the water to warm up again, take the opportunity to learn about some of the local organizations that are working hard to keep our backyard beautiful – and how you can be part of the progress.
I Love a Clean San Diego
San Diego Coastkeeper
I Love a Clean San Diego hosts both beach and inland cleanups throughout the region. Upcoming events include Tsunami Sweepers on Jan. 23 – a cleanup at Torrey Pines State Beach to help clean up debris still washing ashore from the 2011 Japanese Tsunami – and Cupid’s Cleanup on Feb. 13 – a cleanup meeting behind Benchmark Brewing Company to pick up litter from surrounding streets and the San Diego River.
San Diego Coastkeeper teams up with Surfrider Foundation to host semi-monthly cleanups across the county. Businesses have the option of sponsoring special corporate cleanups, which make a great teambuilding exercise while helping the environment. Coastkeeper also provides Beach Cleanups in a Box – a kit with supplies for up to 25 people to organize their own cleanup. Participants are asked to complete and return Coastkeeper’s data sheets after their cleanup.

Surfrider Foundation San Diego sandiego.surfrider.org
Surfrider Foundation San Diego and San Diego Coastkeeper’s regular cleanups are open to the public and held from 9 to 11 a.m. unless otherwise noted. Pre-registration is only needed for groups of 25 or more. Participants are encouraged to wear closed-toed shoes, hats, and sunscreen. Businesses are also encouraged to sponsor scheduled beach cleanups. Surfrider Foundation has a number of other projects, including Ocean Friendly Gardens, which advocates for native and climate-appropriate landscapes to prevent pollution from urban water runoff.

:::: REAL ESTATE WATCH
2016 Real Estate Began with a Bang! I
n my previous article I wrote that the real estate market would continue to flourish. I’ll pat myself on the back – it’s beginning to explode! We already seen a healthy growth in home sales and pricing as an indication the marketplace is stable. Distress sales will no longer be playing a role, new construction is returning to more traditional levels, and prices will rise at a more consistent rate with a more balanced market. Millennials emerged as a dominant force in 2015. This pattern will continue in 2016 as their large numbers combined with improving personal financial conditions will enable enough buyers between ages 25 and 34 to move the market. The majority of those buyers will be first-timers, but that will require other generations to also play larger roles. Those from Generation X are
in their prime earning years and able to relocate to better neighborhoods for their families. Baby boomers approaching retirement are seeking to downsize and lock in a lower cost of living. We should see a strong growth in new home sales and single-family construction as builders offer more affordable product. Buyers of all ages should consider new homes, but availability will be highly dependent on location, particularly in the desirable coastal areas. I told you mortgage rates would go up sometime in 2015, and they did. However, they also went back down. The level of increase has been manageable, even though higher rates will drive monthly payments higher along with debtto-income ratios increasing. Rent is accelerating at a more rapid pace than home prices. I’ve seen asking rent on
vacant units increase at a double-digit pace in the second half of this year. More than 85% of U.S. markets have rents that exceed 30% of the income of renting households. This trend does not bode well for the health of the housing market. It will improve when construction of affordable rentals as well as more of a pathway for renters to become homeowners. For all your Real Estate needs stop into Dan Conway & Associates; Pacific Sotheby’s International Realty, at their office in The Piazza Carmel Shopping Center.
