I was honored to attend the 100th birthday celebration of my patient, Mr. Thomas Taylor, at Community Bible Church in Stockbridge. Mr. Taylor flew military transports in the Pacific during World War II.  After MacArthur and the Americans liberated the Philippine islands, some of his prominent passengers included the Philippine head of state and his family. After […]

“Daddy wants you to help him carry some things,” my wife told me that cold Christmas day in Virginia back in 1983. A man of few words, I couldn’t say I knew my father-in-law very well then. We silently drove up to the family Southern States store, a place that sold mostly grain and fertilizer […]

High blood pressure is called the “silent killer” because most people who develop it don’t know they have it.  High blood pressure (hypertension) sometimes leads to heart attacks and strokes.  Two patients who have been in our practice have lost sight in one eye due to high blood pressure.  Hypertension ( high blood pressure) can cause […]

I just got back from Budapest, Hungary.  It’s as beautiful as Prague, but much bigger, and was not destroyed during World War II.  Divided by the Danube River, Budapest sits on one side and Pest on the  other. Maybe the reason the beauty of Budapest is not so well known is that it’s difficult to […]

Marcia and I spent last Saturday night at Millstead Baptist Church, serving as chaperones for Family Promise of Newrock, an interdenominational ministry of many churches in Rockdale and Newton Counties.  This ministry serves families who have temporary emergencies such as losing their homes to foreclosure.  The goal is to help these families stay together and get […]

Super Bowl Sunday

January 31, 2016

Next Sunday’s Super Bowl represents the culmination of the 2015 football season, even though we are now into 2016. Two of our patients had football success on the national level that we would like to recognize. Ryan Kay played his high school ball at Dutchtown before moving on to Troy University in Alabama as a […]

Hospital Day

May 9, 2015

Yesterday was hospital day at Piedmont Henry.  We do mostly special needs patients there, people who can’t be treated in a conventional dental office.  I got there at 6:30 a.m. and was done by 10:20–a short day.  Kolleen spent several hours getting everything done administratively, and Megan packed up everything we needed without us having to […]

One of our employees, Chelsea Parker, has reached a milestone in her dental career.  Chelsea graduates from Clayton State University this Saturday with a degree in Dental Hygiene.  She has already passed her national and regional boards, so it’s just a task of completing her paper work to get her license.  Since she passed the CRDTS […]

Back in Birmingham

April 27, 2015

I was back in Birmingham last weekend as an Examiner for the Central Regional Testing Agency at the University of Alabama Birmingham School of Dentistry.  The dental school at UAB is noted for the research by Dr. Jack Lemons that determined the best biocompatible materials for dental implants.  Anyone who has had an implant with […]

One week later I am on the Savannah River in downtown Augusta, Georgia.  I was an examiner for CRDTS at Georgia Regents University (formerly MCG) Dental School two miles away.  The riverwalk in Augusta is beautiful and an invigorating place to walk.  The temperature was 70 degrees.  That’s a 70 degree swing from a week […]
