Smile enhancement can have dramatic results on your overall appearance. Even the smallest step can boost your confidence, self-esteem, and make you want to smile more. With modern advances in dentistry, cosmetic procedures such as bonding and porcelain veneers can make chipped teeth look like new.

CARTRIDGE-NETWORK - Griffin HampsonInk cartridge cost is currently a hot button issue.  Like many product categories, marketing representations may be factual, but can often be disingenuous.

Epson’s EcoTank printers (five models from $300+ to $1,200) come with bags of ink, poured into the storage unit feeding the printhead; NOT replaceable cartridges.

Epson represents each has about two years of ink; enough to print thousands of pages, providing very low cost-per-page.  True, but…

Not mentioned: the basic printer is an existing low-end model, generally $70+, is slow, with few extra capabilities, and has an expanded storage area for raw ink  So, one pays $250+ upfront for ink and the possibility of lowering the cost-per-page, if all of the ink is used before the printer experiences problems.  If the printer doesn’t last, only using half of the ink, the actual cost per page doubles. And, if the user does not routinely clean the printheads it will clog up, possibly rendering the printer useless.  (See www.tinyurl.com/he59cnn/ )

We recycle lots of printers, periodically testing to determine history and quirks.  Few low end printers print more than a few thousand pages. 

So, it’s a great proposition, IF one gets full life.  If not, you overpaid.

We can shed some light on this issue.

Cartridge Network, a full-service independent, non-franchise operation, sells and services printers and copiers. “We stock dozens of different printer models (inkjet and laser) and copiers too. We focus on a buyer’s needs and then explore alternatives to best meet their needs.”

We stock several thousand different cartridges. Shipping is free.

BEAVERTON LODGE - Margaret NormanAs we end the year, I am deeply grateful for our community of cherished residents and staff members and looking forward to the new year.

Beaverton Lodge -- an independent, locally owned retirement living community founded in 1988 -- offers comfort in continuity and delight in the unfolding seasons throughout the year.

Situated along a tranquil portion of Beaverton Creek, the landscape is home to local creatures such as ducks and a large variety of bird species. Our residents love the walking paths and gardens, with plenty of benches on which to stop, sit and enjoy the beauty and sounds. A few blocks away are the Beaverton Library and the Elsie Stuhr senior center.

Residents find all the features one would want in a retirement community: large apartments with storage closets; a full-service dining room; a mineral saline pool and spa; and a movie theater with fresh popcorn.

Family and friends are welcome to stroll through “the golden gallery,” where local artists showcase their paintings and other art.

In the spring and summer, residents tend their raised-bed gardens, which produce tomatoes, corn, cucumbers and squash. The Beaverton Farmer’s Market is just a few blocks away, with fresh local homegrown produce.

We offer a full activity program, weekly housekeeping and linen, scheduled transportation, and resident managers on call 24 hours a day — all with an affordable month-to-month rent.

I look forward to meeting new residents this year. Stop by for a complimentary lunch and tour of our community.

DR. IRINA MOGA, DDS - Dr. Irina MogaIt’s open-enrollment season. Deciding whether to buy dental insurance is a very important decision for you and your family. In addition to limiting your financial risk from some dental expenses, dental insurance can help in a number of other ways.

Dental insurance plans:

· Generally cover regular professional visits that include teeth cleanings and fluoride treatments. These visits, combined with proper flossing and brushing at home, help avoid tooth decay and promote healthy gums. Plans may also cover other aspects of professional dental care, including fillings, crowns and root canals.

· Can help pay for unexpected dental emergencies and damage to your teeth that may be expensive to fix.

· Will help your children establish healthy preventative dental habits early on. Regular oral exams, cleanings and X-rays are important to long-term dental health.

It’s important to assess your known dental needs and those of your family. For example, are any family members likely to need orthodontia, wisdom-tooth extraction, periodontal (gum) care, cosmetic procedures, bridgework or dentures this coming year? Does your employer offer a Flexible Spending Account or Medical Savings Account to save for larger expenditures?

Here are a few good questions to ask when comparing dental plans:

Which dentists are within this plan’s preferred provider network?

Which services are covered under this plan and which are not?

How much will I have to pay (monthly premiums, co-pays and annual deductibles) and what is the annual maximum coverage?

Don’t hesitate to call our office to ask questions that may inform your decision.

ABEAVERTON LODGE - Margaret Normans people get older and become more vulnerable through physical aging, slower cognitive skills and limited mobility, they may begin to experience fear or anxiety.

Loved ones should recognize that such fears are a normal response to change, even in someone who once had a confident stride and attitude. Fears – even those that may seem baseless – should be recognized and their concerns should be addressed.

Studies show that 30 to 50 percent of elderly people fear falling and being injured. Others may be frightened to cook, concerned they may start a fire. Not being able to drive, which can be caused by vision problems or slower reflexes, fuels a senior’s biggest fear -- loss of independence.

A small degree of fear can be healthy, inspiring an aging adult to get a cane or walker. A high degree of fear may result in a senior sitting too much and losing muscle tone, which actually increases the likelihood of falling.

Some seniors may have concerns about moving to a retirement or assisted living community. Such concerns are often based in unfamiliarity with the services such a community may offer, the facility itself, opportunities to be active and social, medication assistance and safety measures.

Our retirement community, Beaverton Lodge, inspires confidence in our residents and helps them live healthier, happier lives.

Beaverton Lodge is a locally owned, welcoming community on a beautiful, walkable campus.

Call us today to arrange a tour. And have a wonderful holiday season!

DR. MOGA DDS FAMILY & COSMETIC DENTISTRY - Irina Moga, DDSYou may have a parent, spouse or friend who has difficulty maintaining a healthy mouth on their own. How can you help?

Two things are critical:

· Help them keep their mouth clean with reminders to brush and floss daily.

· Make sure they get to a dentist regularly.

These steps can prevent many problems, but tasks that once seemed so simple can become very challenging.

If your loved one is having difficulty with brushing and flossing, talk to a dentist or hygienist who can provide helpful tips or a different approach.

For a patient who wear dentures, pay close attention to eating habits. If they’re having difficulty eating or are not eating as much as usual, denture problems could be the cause.

When you’re caring for someone who is confined to bed, they may have so many health problems that it’s easy to forget about oral health. However, it’s still very important because bacteria from the mouth can be inhaled into the lungs and cause pneumonia.

Our team offers a full range of dental care in an inviting and comforting setting, along with a level of personal attention and compassion you won’t find elsewhere.

We are committed to providing comprehensive oral health care, with a strong emphasis on prevention.

For those who need dentures, we can handle all phases of the process.

Dr. Moga offers full dental care, including extractions, while Michael Moga expertly crafts dentures in the same office.
