All About Dental Sealants For Greenwood Village

All About Dental Sealants for Greenwood Village

Are you searching for dental sealants for Greenwood Village? If so, you have come to the right place. Dental sealants are a type of plastic coating that is placed on the chewing surface of the permanent back teeth. It helps protect such teeth from decay over time. The molar and premolar teeth have chewing surfaces with fissures which make them vulnerable to decay over time. Most of the time, these fissures are deep and difficult to clean. Plaque can easily accumulate in these fissures making them vulnerable to decay over time. That’s where dental sealants come in handy. This article provides information on dental sealants for Greenwood Village.

Incredible dash cam video shows the moment car flew into dentist’s office

Duration: 00:38 20 hrs ago

Remarkable dashcam video shows the moment a car flew through the air, and into the second floor of a California dentist’s office. Orange County Fire officials say the Nissan Altima crossed three lanes of traffic and hit a divider, sending it airborne and into the building. The crash also caused a small fire, which was quickly extinguished. Amazingly, the driver and passenger escaped with only minor injuries. The driver was later arrested on suspicion of driving under the influence, police said.

Two children die after visiting dentist’s office in Arizona

YUMA, Arizona —

Two children, one dentist’s office, each meeting the same tragic fate.

An Arizona mother is suing Kool Smiles in Yuma after her 4-year-old daughter died days after she visited the dentist’s office in January 2016.

Francisca Lares said she is heartbroken, because she was only trying to do the right thing in getting care for her daughter, KNXV reports.

But when little Liseth Lares developed a fever, family attorney Marco Mercaldo said the dentist sent the girl home after a "relatively cursory exam."

"Told the mom essentially there is nothing to worry about, she’ll be fine," Mercaldo said. "Unfortunately, the infection spread and she died of the infection."

Mercaldo argues Liseth could have survived the infection if Kool Smiles had given her the proper treatment.

The lawsuit comes on the heels of a second child’s death, happening just this week.

Family members say 2-year-old Zion Gastelum stopped breathing after getting a filling at Kool Smiles three weeks ago. After his breathing became labored, Zio died four days later.

Officials are still investigating Zion’s cause of death, and could not say whether it was related to the dentist.

Francisca said she is going to court to get action in hopes of saving other children’s lives.

"I’m not in it for the money. I’m in because I want people to pay attention to what they’re doing," Lares said.

The dentist will face trial next February.

Michael Edwards Awarded Top Dentist 7 Years in a Row

Dr. Michael Edwards was awarded a Top Dentist award for 2017, his 7th time. The award is given by his peers from Top Dentists, Inc, which has over 20 years of experience in gathering peer-review referral guides in the dental field.

Dr. Edwards is a native Indianan raised in Carmel. He has always been a high achiever and was Vice President of his class, as well as captain of the wrestling team. His hard word earned him the Evans Scholarship and he double-majored in Chemistry and Biology at Indiana University. He went on to study at the Indiana University School of Dentistry, where he achieved his DDS, his Certificate of Periodontics, and his MS.

Always following his penchant for details, he knew he would specialize in periodontics and began leading the field in specialty procedures, including I.V. conscious sedation, LANAP, Pinhole surgery, gum disease treatment, and dental implants. He maintains that “…dentistry was my destiny!” His primary goal at his practice is to “orchestrate a team to deliver the highest level of dentistry through a comfortable, comforting process," Edwards says. “The team isn’t just myself, my staff, and any other dentists involved — it includes the patient as well. I also strive to serve as a visionary for the practice, to create a place for us in the rapidly changing dental marketplace. I love watching my team grow and become stronger."<

Dr. Edwards is a member of many esteemed associations, including the American Academy of Periodontology, Academy of Osseointegration, International Team for Oral Implantology (ITI), Indiana Society of Periodontists (past president), and the Indianapolis District Dental Society. He also co-leads the Seattle Study Club and holds Diplomate status with the Board of Periodontology. He is board-certified by the American Board of Periodontology, as well as Certified in PerioLase® MVP-7™ from the Institute for Advanced Laser Dentistry (IALD).

His wife, Michelle, is also a dentist and author, and together they have three children, Jackson, Alexis and Lila. He loves nothing more than spending time with his family, but also spends time on the weekends golfing, fishing, and hopes to take his family traveling around the world someday. He and his family also support various organizations including The Evans Scholarship, Gennesaret Dental Clinic, Indiana University, American Cancer Society, and the Children’s Bureau.

As one of Indianapolis’s best periodontists, he admits that his patients inspire him and make up an important part of his practice: “I love being able to sit with patients who had been told by other practices that they couldn’t be helped, and going over everything we’ve done together." He has a second practice in Fishers, Indiana.

Someone’s forging signatures in Greenwood Village to support a new hotel project

DENVER – Convincing a city to allow you to build a new hotel takes a lot of planning. Forging signatures on a petition of support for that project apparently does not.

Marriott Residence Inn wants to build a new hotel at 5580 S. Park Place.

On Tuesday night, the Greenwood Village planning commission was going to decide if it would recommend the project to city council.

Spoiler alert: the commission did not.

A keen-eyed Greenwood Village planning commissioner discovered what appear to be forged signatures on a last-minute addition to the hotel project packet. As commissioner member Elizabeth Barnacle reviewed the 29 signatures on a three-page petition of support for the project, she noticed a familiar name and grilled the person who handed the signatures to the commission.

"So then, you have no information as to explain ‘line 17, Jeff Kahn,’ signing this piece of paper, when in fact we are in receipt of a letter from him adamantly opposing the project, February 13 of this year. Can you explain that at all?" she asked.

Peter Wall, from CRL Associates, which was the local group hired to do community outreach, assumed that Kahn must have signed the petition since emailing the city his opposition earlier this year.

"Since I wasn’t at the door, I can’t sit there and talk to you about how the conversation went," said Wall.

"I pride myself on knowing the people that I represent," Barnacle told 9News. "It was just like a Perry Mason moment when Jeff Kahn walked in."

Kahn actually showed up at the meeting a short time later and went to the microphone to oppose the project.

"If my signature is on record anywhere, I’d love to see it. I have my driver’s license in my pocket. They can compare it," Kahn said at the meeting.

He showed the commissioners his license, with a different looking signature than what appeared on the petition.

"I wouldn’t say that matches, thank you," said one commissioner.

"I was immediately shocked and angry and pretty appalled," Kahn told 9News. "I looked at it, and it’s a signature that’s clearly not mine. It’s much nicer and it’s legible. If there’s any record of me having supported this thing, it’s a fraud and a forgery."


But the Perry Mason moments at the meeting continued.

While resident Jeff McCall told the commission why he opposed the project, Barnacle stopped him.

"Mr. McCall, I’m sorry to interrupt you. Are you aware that your name and signature are also on this statement of support for the Marriott Residence Inn, in Line 21?"

"No, I’m not. I don’t want to eat into my time, but I’d love to see the signature, and I’d be happy to produce my driver’s license as well," said McCall.

"I was against the development, and to see my name on a petition in favor of the development was disconcerting to say the least," resident Tony Spafford told 9News from his front door. "It said Anthony Spafford. That’s my middle name. It’s not my first name, and it’s certainly not the way I sign any documents."

Spafford found out his name appeared on the petitions from his HOA president, and then got a visit from police on Thursday.

"I was offended and, kind of, outraged actually," said Spafford. "My first reaction was, if I find out who’s responsible for this, I would definitely press charges if that’s required for the criminal offense."

"Would I press charges if they asked me? Absolutely," said Kahn.


"I think you stand there stunned and not sure 100 percent what’s happening," said Roger Sherman from CRL Associates.

He wasn’t the representative getting grilled at the commission meeting, but found out about the questionable signatures soon after. The signatures weren’t even required as part of the hotel application.

"It adds credibility to the application to have residents supporting it," said Sherman.

He told 9News that CRL Associates hired Turn Corps to handle signature gathering. The head of Turn Corps told us they hired someone else.

"We worked with a local canvassing agency to go door-to-door. We have no reason to believe these signatures were forged and have not been contacted by law enforcement," said Bryan Blakely, Turn Corps’ Principal.

We asked who he hired and if he really believes the signatures are legit.

"There is no incentive for a canvasser to forge a signature or falsely increase the number of signatures collected. We never pay by the signature, so if a canvasser comes back with 10 or five or even zero, the payment would be the same amount. What would be his motivation for forging?" said Blakely. "The canvasser was not provided a list of names of residents to work from. The canvasser just knocked on 350 doors and spoke with whomever answered and would have no way of knowing who lived in the home. How would he know who lived in each home?"

He said they hired MG Connections to go door-to-door.


Melanie Gann from MG Connections told 9News that the signature collector is no longer an employee.

"We had no idea about any of this going on; kind of shocked," said Gann.

Gann said that the signature collector, Eric Forney, started collecting signatures on Nov. 17.

"I really value quality control. It’s really the first problem that’s come up for my company. It won’t happen again," said Gann.

She said she could not break confidentiality to tell 9News if Forney had collected signatures for other petitions, though she said he was a seasonal worker dating back to Fall 2016.

"They never stopped at the door. I never met a guy named Eric," Kahn said at Tuesday’s meeting. "It’s reprehensible. It’s immoral."

Sherman said he sent employees back to the neighborhood to double check the petition signatures.

"We did talk to two residents who did sign the petition, but a significant number of them appear to be false," said Sherman. "If, indeed. it’s proven that these signatures have been falsified, I think they need to follow the law and prosecute the individual."

Greenwood Village city manager John Jackson, the former police chief, said that he was notified about the signatures on Tuesday night, and a police investigation was started immediately.

Marshall Zelinger is an investigative reporter for Next with Kyle Clark. He was once called "Mitchell," by a U.S. Senate candidate, when confronted with questions about forged signatures on his petitions to make the ballot. Got a news tip or a story idea?

The Amazing Atmosphere Of Colorado

If there’s one reason to move to Colorado, it’s the atmosphere. That goes for the weather and the attitude and general feeling of the area in general. Even the scenery in the state is among the most beautiful of any state in the entire union. Even if you’re not fond of dealing with cold weather in the winter months, Colorado is definitely a fantastic place to at least visit for a vacation if nothing more.

Although the air does indeed reach incredibly cold temperatures at times in Colorado, it’s easily some of the freshest you’ll ever breathe within the United States. These days, it’s easy to take such things for granted as we stay indoors for longer and longer periods of time. You might not think of it, but even the experience you can have when stepping outdoors and taking a deep breath can really add to the appeal of an area. Colorado delivers on any expectation you could have.

Interpersonal relations are also quite strong throughout the state. You won’t find many judgmental or shallow types in Colorado. The residents are almost always incredibly friendly, courteous, and even helpful when it counts most. Some of the best states and cities in the country can sometimes be brought down by their citizens, but that definitely isn’t the case here.

In general, the actual experience of just being in and around Colorado is truly amazing. From gorgeous fields and scenic mountainous landscapes to fresh air and great people, there’s a lot to love. If you’ve been yearning for a locale within the US that’s still a little bit more down to Earth, you really don’t have to look any further. From retirement to vacation spots and anything in between, Colorado is easily in the running for one of the best states you can possibly choose.

Is Instagram killing the environment? Colorado’s picturesque places being overrun

DENVER — Our obsession with social media could be ruining the environment. All those insta-worthy locations around Colorado, and in other states too, are feeling the effects of people flocking for that photo.

Denver7 spoke to Colorado Parks and Wildlife about the problems they’re seeing.

Rebecca Ferrell with the Colorado Parks and Wildlife says it all adds up, when person after person heads to that photo-worthy destination.

"I’m just one person. How much damage could I be doing if I want to get that one photo or that great opportunity?" said Ferrell.

Problems arise when people go off trail to get that shot, trampling on endangered plant species or putting graffiti on the landscape.

"There are definitely habitat issues for wildlife — if people want to get too close to elk, for example, in Estes Park or Rocky Mountain National Park," said Ferrell.

There’s even a guy on Instagram whose account shames people caught in the act. One of his many photos, a commercial photo shoot at Hanging Lake, had also attracted a ton of media attention. No swimming is allowed at the lake, and signs are visible.

But worst of all could be the trash and cleanup left behind by all the thousands of visitors.

"Things like human waste, dog waste collect because there just isn’t a plan or outhouses or things like that are available," said Ferrell.

Conundrum Hot Springs outside of Aspen had to shut down just so park rangers could shovel it all out.

So for now a warning:

"100-percent: Enjoy the parks and the scenery that we have available, but do it in a smart way. We have trails that are specifically marked, we ask people to stay on those," said Ferrell.

*WARNING GRAPHIC FOOTAGE: Gruesome footage has emerged showing a dentist removing live MAGGOTS from the yuck mouth of a female patient.

The patient appears to be in extreme distress as the stomach-churning video moves up to reveal that she has a tube connected to her nose.

The dentist pulls back her lips to show the maggots covering her decayed teeth and gums.

The patient can be heard repeatedly wincing and breathing heavily during the minute-long clip.

It is not clear where the footage was filmed but according to LiveLeak the video was taken in India.

Despite the alarming sight, it’s not the first time dentists have encountered maggots at their surgeries.

In March 2015, 10-year-old schoolgirl Ana Cardoso went to the dentist with swollen gums and was horrified when 15 maggots were removed from her mouth, per the UK Mirror.

Her stunned mother said: “She had been saying for a few days that she felt something moving around in her mouth and at first I thought she was joking.”

Ana was reportedly diagnosed with a rare form of Oral Myiasis, a fly lava maggot infection that grows in humans and animals.
