    Athletes Unite In Fight Against Heroin

    If you don’t know someone who is affected by heroin or opioid use, you know someone who knows someone who is. That’s two degrees of separation, and it’s the thinking behind an effort to raise awareness of the heroin- and opioid-use epidemic in Anne Arundel County. That effort is...

  • An Elected School Board For Anne Arundel County

    Last month was historic for our county, our school system, our parents and our students. In a stunning and complete turnaround in policy, state legislators voted to replace Anne Arundel County's appointed school board with an elected school board.
    I have consistently pushed for an elected school board for more than a decade, and I applaud our House and Senate delegations for giving our constituents the power to choose their school board representatives. Giving our citizens a direct say in their school board is long overdue, particularly given that the board controls more than $1 billion in taxpayer funds, including nearly all funds raised in property taxes.
    For decades, Anne Arundel...

  • Stop Childhood Cavities With Dental Sealants And Fluoride Varnishing

    To reduce the risk of tooth decay and protect the biting surfaces of new teeth erupting in the mouth, patients can get dental sealants and have their dentist apply fluoride varnishes two to four times per year.
    Q: My children now receive full mouth fluoride varnish treatments twice a year at their cleaning appointments. Is this better than gels or rinses?
    A: These 5 percent sodium fluoride varnishes provide instant tooth surface protection, minimizing the swallowing risk. Application is recommended for all age groups. Varnish treatments impact the dentition by reducing the occurrence of dental decay on smooth tooth surfaces and between teeth. This is in addition to regular daily brushing...
