From the article of Observer...
With collaboration from dentists, volunteers and the Florida Baptist Convention, the Beach Baptist Church brought in a much-needed service to the community.
This week, through Friday, the church hosted the convention's mobile dental unit on its campus. The unit provided free emergency dental work to qualifying local individuals based on their financial need.
The dentistry work was volunteered by Dr. Sun Park Kuo and her husband Dr. Wayne Kuo of Fort Myers Beach and Dr. Tammy Hsu of Tampa.
THANK YOU EVERYONE FOR THE SUCCESSFUL MISSION TRIP!

On Memorial Day, I don't want to only remember the combatants. There were also those who came out of the trenches as writers and poets, who started preaching peace, men and women who have made this world a kinder place to live.
Thank you, all and let's share your thoughts. Please email me [email protected]

What Happens to Your Body on an Airplane
‘Tis the season for travel! Whether you’re going to visit the fam in Kansas City or are off to the Cayman Islands for some R&R, you’ll be joining the more than 5 million people traveling by air sometime during the holiday season.
Now picture yourself there, at 40,000 feet, rocking out to Adele and playing Candy Crush on your iPad, trying to politely ignore your chatty seatmate. While everything might appear normal on the outside, there’s some wacky stuff going on inside you as you’re confined to a metal tube soaring above the clouds. Check this out, and you’ll never look at an airplane the same way again.
The humidity level in an airplane dips below 20 percent (compared to the average home humidity level of above 30 percent). That desert-like atmosphere can do more than simply leave you reaching for your L’Occitane. The low humidity “dries out the mucous membranes in your nose, sinuses, and throat, leaving you susceptible to infection,” Sanford Vieder, DO, medical director and founder of Lakes Urgent Care clinics in Michigan, tells Yahoo Health.
Mucous plays a key role in your immune system — it’s basically a bouncer that blocks microbes from entering the body. And if yours is dried out, viruses can squeeze on by and gain easy access.
The remedy? Guzzle water to keep your mucous membranes moist and up for the job.
Ever wonder what causes that uncomfortable ear popping during takeoff and landing? Your Eustachian tube (the canal that connects your ears to your nasal cavity and throat) is responsible for regulating pressure in your eardrums. “When there’s a rapid drop in pressure, like in a plane, it can be difficult for your Eustachian tube to process the change, which is why you experience ear pain and headaches,” Vieder explains. “A good way to unclog your ears is to drink water, because swallowing naturally uses the same muscular mechanism involved in opening the tube.”
That popping sensation can be downright dangerous if you have a cold or virus. “When you have an infection, the Eustachian tube swells and can’t open wide enough to equalize the pressure,” Vieder says. “As a result, your ear drum could rupture, causing hearing loss and chronic ear infections.” Yikes!
If you’ve got a cavity, you might want to steer clear of the runway. “The depressurization in an aircraft can bring on a severe toothache,” Leavey says. “Decaying teeth have a chamber of pus at the root. In order to equalize the pressure, the air in that hole will expand, leading to pain.”
NOW WE KNOW WHY...Please come and see us before taking off.

It’s a Snap!
An exciting new form of dental technology is changing the way patients view dentistry. You may be aware of the use of lasers in cosmetic dentistry, but laser dentistry is also enhancing many types of dental surgery for your comfort and convenience!
Dental laser surgery uses a beam of intense light to correct your dental problems. The energy produced by the laser actually "cuts" away or vaporizes the tissue it is concentrated on. Dental lasers remove bacteria and infection then cleanse the area in preparation for the restoration -- usually in less time and with less irritation than a dental drill. Laser surgery often means less discomfort, an easier recovery and fewer or shorter appointments than most conventional dental treatments.
Now we have CO2 laser along with kavo diagnosis laser!
Come and check these wonderful technologies!!!
