  • Legislation Affecting Immigrants

    You would think, especially in an election year, that the primary focus of our Annapolis representatives would be on legal residents within Maryland. Surprisingly, this year turned out to be a great year for people residing unlawfully in Maryland.
    Several years ago, Maryland voters approved a measure to give those unlawfully in our state equal footing to attend community college at the same discounted in-county tuition rate as a legal citizen.
    However, this year, the General Assembly passed numerous pieces of legislation to provide additional huge, expensive taxpayer-funded benefits for individuals who are here unlawfully. Not only will they receive these benefits, but also it will be at...

  • Prevent Dental Disease

    Today’s dental mission should not be just reacting to and treating problems; instead, the priority should be in prevention.
    The key tools in preventing tooth problems are daily teeth cleanings, a healthy diet, and fluoride and dental sealants. Regular dental cleanings bring everything together.
    Q: What can I do to prevent tooth and gum disease?
    A: Everyone has bacteria in their mouth; these bacteria form a plaque (sticky bacterial deposits) on teeth. To prevent tooth and gum destruction, you must remove this acidic bacterial biofilm.
    This is done by daily brushing and flossing. Brush at least twice a day. Floss once a day. The use of an anti-cavity fluoride toothpaste and...
