Australian Dentists Clinic’s New Website Helps People Looking for a Dentist

MELBOURNE, AUSTRALIA / ACCESSWIRE / January 20, 2017 / The Australian Dentists Clinic has recently launched a new website that is designed to offer essential information to people in Australia about the modern dental services and treatments. The Australian Dentists Clinic, which has branches all over Australia, provides a number of dental procedures, and the new site keeps patients informed with listings of various treatment choices.

The Australian Dentists Clinic provides general dentistry as well as cosmetic and emergency services, which include root canal treatments, Invisalign braces, dental crowns and implants, wisdom teeth extraction, and dental veneers.

Meanwhile, in line with their goal of helping people in terms of dental costs and also in compliance with the Department of Healths Child Dental Benefits Schedule (CDBS), the clinic offers free dental care to children aged between 2 – 17 years old. The CDBS, which started on January 1, 2014, offers access to children who belong to eligible families. Families can contact the Department of Human Services to check if their children are eligible.

Our dental team always stresses to our patients that it is crucial to keep up with dental care, and prevention is always better than a cure, says Nick McMahon from the Australian Dentists Clinic. We want you to enjoy healthy teeth and gums, and part of that is visiting your dentist on a regular basis.

The clinics website offers in-depth information on Invisalign treatment and other procedures, including dental fillings, teeth whitening, splints for teeth grinding, dentures, oral health, and periodontal disease. Other vital information provided on the website includes how a general dentist will check the dental health of a patient, when dental crowns are needed, when a root canal is required, the use of dental bridges, and various trends in cosmetic dentistry.

Our goal is to help people save money and time when it comes to dental care, says McMahon. We want you to be completely informed of your options, whether thats for implants or braces, and we want our patients to know that they can rely on us for those emergency dental situations that may happen from time to time, hence why many of our dental clinics are open 7 days a week.

Mr. McMahon says that the websites goal is to provide information to patients so that they can make informed decisions on their dental care. He states that too many patients rely on advice from friends and family, as opposed to visiting a dentist to have certain issues resolved, and says that the site covers dental conditions and treatment options, as well as what patients can expect from specific procedures.

Those interested can visit the website of Australian Dentists Clinic and check out the services offered and the various specials for new patients, such as the free Invisalign consultation at our Melbourne CBD dental clinic.

How can benefit pros connect with Millennials? Try talking to them

Many studies have documented the attitude that millennials have toward customer service processes. Whether it’s an online chat, mobile banking transaction, or simply texting a food order, the non-essential transactions of their daily lives requires expedient service and response. Millennials want fast, efficient and reliable support, and they prefer digital self-service over a phone call.

In fact, the last thing that many millennials want to do is to contact a call center. Stories about the cable company and overseas tech support teams have, in many cases, created a culture of abstinence toward talking to a live human being. Why talk to someone when I can just chat or text? This perception of millennials seems to hold water in many cases. But are there certain instances where millennials prefer the personal touch over digital interactions?

Hegins Township police chief set to retire

HEGINS — The first year Steven S. Lohr became chief of Hegins Township police he remembers it was also the last year of the Fred Coleman Memorial Labor Day Pigeon Shoot at Hegins Park. Lohr, 64, who’s retiring Friday, reflected on the challenges of working in law enforcement, from what he describes as a “lenient judicial system,” to policing the park and overcoming injury.

Becoming a police officer wasn’t Lohr’s initial career path. A son of the late George and Elsie Lohr, Hubley Township, Lohr formerly ran a timber business with his father and encouraged him to launch a motorcycle business, called Tri-Valley Cycle Sales.

“When I was a teenager, we started that up. I was never really big on cars. We did car repairs, too, but I was more into motorcycles,” he said. He also competed in motocross cycle racing in Leck Kill and Pine Grove.

Lohr was a 1970 Tri-Valley High School graduate, and participated in wrestling, football and gymnastics, competing in the floor exercise, rings and uneven bars. He attended what was then Lock Haven State College, majoring in health and physical education, with thoughts of becoming a gym teacher or health teacher.

“I went three and a half years, then I quit. The cycle shop was getting too big, and dad couldn’t handle it, and I made that decision,” he said.

Hubley stint

At that time, Glenn Miller, a Hubley Township policeman, was leaving, so Lohr applied for the job, and Hubley Township hired him. He got his Act 120 training in 1982.

In 1990, Jeff Bowman was leaving the Hegins Township police force, and the supervisors had asked if Lohr would be interested in serving there. He started in February 1990 as a sergeant, then eventually became Hegins Township police chief when Melvin Stutzman retired as chief in 1992.

Pigeon shoot

Providing police coverage at the Fred Coleman Memorial Labor Day Pigeon Shoot at Hegins Park was among Lohr’s most challenging. In 1992, which turned out to be the last year for the shoot, Lohr was told the day before that his department would be handling the actual park grounds, while state police would be in charge of the surrounding areas.

“The pigeon shoot was the worst event to cover. The year I became chief, in 1992, the state pulled their presence back from the park. Our department handled the park area itself; and they handled everything around the park. That was the year the protesters surrounded themselves in barrels up on Main Street (Route 25).

“Everybody was so mad at me, but that was not our responsibility. We had our order, this is your area, you are in charge of that and we will handle everything else. If you don’t follow the plan, it all goes to crap. All the locals were mad, because we would not leave the park,” he said. “That was bad that year. I was so glad when that year was over, but it all turned out.”

Consuming challenges

The most difficult part of his job, he said, is dealing with fatalities.

“Probably the murders we had were the worst and the most time-consuming. It just consumes you. The Smith murder, up on Main Street, that happened the day before Christmas, and by New Year’s Eve, we had an arrest. You live the job until it’s done. There were no holidays that year.”

“I’d say the suicides, and making the death notifications. It’s hard because I know everybody and grew up with everybody. It’s never easy, but it’s hard telling someone their son or daughter, or mom has died.”

Retirement

Several factors indicated it was time for him to retire, Lohr said.

“Especially, since I broke my leg three years ago, it’s not the same. I always felt confident in myself, physically. But, it’s not the same. I just don’t feel I can do the job. My shifts get tougher. You reach a time where you just can’t do it anymore without the wear and tear. It’s not fair to your other officers, if you get into a (fight), and you can’t hold up your end anymore. I think it was a combination of age, and frustration with the leniency of the system.”

Broken leg

Lohr was on an EMS call and was assisting loading a patient in the back of the ambulance when the gurney kicked back and landed on his right leg, breaking it. A plate and eight screws were needed to repair it and he couldn’t drive for eight or ten weeks.

Transition

Throughout the years, Lohr has had 23 “bosses,” as supervisors have come and gone. He’s also worked with several former county sheriffs, including Paul Sheers, Tim Holden, Francis McAndrew and Dan Grow, as well as current Sheriff Joseph Groody.

Schuylkill County Detective Dennis Clark worked with Lohr for nearly a decade, from when Clark entered the Hegins Township force in 1992, and has known the chief for years. He said Lohr had a good rapport with his staff and was “always there for the public.”

“He always had the staff’s respect,” Clark said. “He did his work and tried to get as much done as he could. He’s a good guy who deserves his retirement. The years have worn on him.”

Initially, there were three part-time officers in Hegins Township, then in 1995, Lohr got a grant. Then they had three full-time and six part-time officers.

“I had got a few grants for three or four years. We had a contract with Hubley Township to provide police services. And then there were grants available, because we had an inter-municipal agreement. So there was extra money available for that. Back in 1995, we got a COPS grant, which paid for an additional, full-time officer for three years,” he said.

Hegins Township paid to have the full-time officer on for one more year after the grant, but then ended the contract with Hubley Township and dropped the extra full-timer in 1999. Today, there are two full-time police officers, including Lohr, and four part-time. Sgt. Beau Yarmush was named the new chief, upon Lohr’s retirement. The township still hasn’t found a replacement for Yarmush’s position.

Vicious cycle

“Municipalities just keep cutting back and cutting manpower. The biggest change has been with the judicial system. They keep trying to get more and more out of police with less money and less benefits. Between budget cuts and the judicial system, you can see what’s happening with society. The less hours you’re out on the street, the more things happen. It is just a vicious cycle. Then with our liberal court system and the laws anymore, it’s just a revolving door, and there’s very little deterrent anymore.

“We can enforce the law, but what happens after that is out of our control. People’s attitudes have changed. Everybody thinks they’re entitled. It used to not be that way. People were appreciative when you’d help them out. Most times, you’re dealing with all the bad news. Everybody looks for us for an answer, and we don’t have an answer for everything.

“More things have become civil, rather than criminal. And I really think it’s a convenience to keep processing them through. You make drug arrests, and they end up with a disorderly conduct, and a slap on the wrist. They talk about the heroin epidemic. They keep giving them Narcan and bringing them back, over and over and over. They make it easier for them to use drugs. Hopefully, the taxpayers are getting tired of it. It costs a lot of money. You’ve seen the past two years with our drug round-ups how many people were caught. We’re talking felony sales of hard drugs, but there’s no punishment, with bail and so forth,” Lohr said.

He said people are often released on their own recognizance, with not a penny posted; or unsecured bail, with zero going back into the system.

Lohr said the central booking used in the county has helped with processing efficiency, but does have its downside.

“It saved time, but, in the same token, it was an opportunity to spend some time with these people, after you arrested them. Maybe you had a DUI and a drunk. Most times with a domestic, one or both of them were drunk. You got to see them a week or two later when they came in to get fingerprinted, and then you got to hold their hand. When you get up close, and you’re fingerprinting somebody, your talking with them, and you try to find out what’s going on. A lot of times, people are still friends with me today who I took through the process. I tried to treat them all the same. Things happen in their lives and things get out of hand. Especially this time of year; and a month after Christmas when all the credit cards come due. End of January, beginning of February, domestics rise.

“It took some of the personal side of policing away by having them do it. It does work, it does save us some time, but you’re losing that personal contact. Your central booking is your fingerprinting. Before that came to be, they had to come in here, call and make an appointment. You physically fingerprinted them here. It gave you maybe 45 minutes or an hour with the person. They’re coming in sober now, and you were dealing with them when they were drunk. Most come in and they’re ashamed and apologetic. I see it all the time. You didn’t know what you were saying. You just don’t take things personally, because a drunk is a drunk is a drunk. They’re going to say ugly things.”

Dealing with the youth in the community has been the most rewarding aspect of his job, Lohr said.

“They are our future. Saturday night, I came out and did the Santa parade. That was kind of my thing all these years. If we went shopping, or whatever, I always had to be back for the Santa parade. It was a must for me. The young kids, if I stopped at Top Star or in town, all the young kids wave at me and say, ‘Hi, Stevie.’ A couple of young ones up in Hegins stepped out on the road and yelled, ‘Stevie, Stevie.’ I just really enjoy working with the young kids.”

Lohr, and his wife, Patti, have one daughter, Brittany, and live in the Schuylkill County’s west end. He said in his retirement, he’ll be catching up on projects on his farm.

Comments Off on Exercising moral authority over the army

Exercising moral authority over the army

Islamabad diary

Its not a question of lsquo;being on the same page, the silly turn of phrase which has become so popular with us, or a question of putting lsquo;generals in Suzukis, the incendiary phrase used by Muhammad Khan Junejo. Its more a question of setting out the outlines of national policy, which is the task of the national leadership, and then seeing to it that the generals, instead of following their own inclinations, take their cue from you.

This is the Holy Grail of Pakistans polity yet to be discovered. Although a democratic order is in place, and long may it last, politics as a currency stands debased while the might of the generals has grown. From foreign policy to the mechanics of internal security, theirs is the decisive voice. For the strengthening of the countrys political fibre lets leave the moral fibre to one side how is this tendency to be reversed?

If words could do the trick Article 6 of the constitution which defines as treason any subversion of the constitution would have done it. We know from experience that these threatening words have had no effect on coup-makers.

Long ago the politicians now in power sought more attractive ways to bring leading generals into their sphere of influence, bearing gifts, call them Trojan horses, to generals marked for seduction. The BMW dealership was with a close confidant of the PM, Saifur Rehman, the onetime NAB chief whose Qatari connections are so strong. Shuja Nawaz in his book, lsquo;Crossed Swords, says one such gift, a BMW, was pressed on Gen Asif Nawaz, the then army chief. There was no photographer at hand so his reaction is lost to posterity.

The present lot in previous incarnations brought high judges to heel, sowing dissension in the Supreme Court and getting rid of a bothersome chief justice. The art of taming the bureaucracy and making it perform like the tamed lions of the Lucky Irani Circus they perfected long ago in that mighty province, land of the five rivers (owing to the accidents of geography, now reduced to three), the real religion of whose elites and leading lights through the ages has been the worship of the rising sunhellip;a province they have ruled, apart from the Musharraf interregnum, since 1985.

Industrialists they were themselves, so the business community and trading classes were always on their side. The army alone remained outside their circle of dutiful obedience.

But the problem was systemic rather than anything to do with individuals. The industrial, financial and banking landscape the present ruling coterie knew how to paint and use to their advantage. They needed no lessons from anyone on how to juggle the tax regime, shift funds, and open hugger-mugger, surreptitious offshore accounts.

This was their own territory and they knew it like the back of their hands. But talking to the generals on policy matters was something slightly different. It was here that their discomfort would rise to the surface. They knew not how to engage with the generals and discuss, say, India and Afghanistan with anything like adequate much less commanding knowledge.

Why is it that Shahbaz Sharif, otherwise self-sufficient in most things, always takes Nisar Ali Khan with him when meeting army chiefs, whether Kayani or Raheel Sharif? Nisar can talk better and being the son of an army officer and brother to another officer, the late Lt-Gen Iftikhar, and not to forget that he is an Aitchisonian to boot, he is more at ease with the khaki crowd.

Muhammad Khan Junejo was no Aitchisonian, and spoke with no cut-glass accent, but he was honest and upright and there were no skeletons in his cupboard. He thus had no problem looking Gen Ziaul Haq in the eye and being straight with him. Junejo had no powerbase of his own, his sole qualification being Pir Pagaras recommendation. But Junejo while always proper and a stickler for the rules never behaved subserviently before the general. At their very first meeting, this was after being selected as PM, Junejo, much to Zias shock, felt no hesitation in asking when martial law would be lifted.

Junejo could act thus because he had nothing to hide. But when your name is embroiled in scandals and questions are raised about your financial probity, then the idea of summoning generals to your table and giving them instructions on policy and strategy becomes somewhat problematic.

You can have the experience of appointing not one but half a dozen army chiefs, but if your bosom is not clean and your hands are tainted, and the country is swirling with fact and innuendo about your financial dealings, then the moral authority you may seek in your dreams becomes elusive.

Corruption has permeated military ranks too and the real-estate virus, as exemplified by defence housing authorities which exist nowhere else in the world, has affected all the defence services. Things are so far advanced on this front that even the Intelligence Bureau, which must be a first for any intelligence outfit in the world, has entered into the real estate. When will the ISI have a housing authority all to itself?

But despite this plot-hunger, the army has jealously guarded its professional autonomy and it remains the countrys most organised and vital institution. And its spirit, grievously affected during the Musharraf years, stands restored as a result of Gen Raheel Sharifs outstanding leadership.

Derided not long ago as a chocolate army when its corps commanders were better known as crore commanders it is now widely acknowledged as a battle-hardened army which has taken heavy losses in the war against the TTP but has restored Pakistani sovereignty in wide stretches of territory where this sovereignty had been lost. For this the army has reasons to thank the TTP which re-taught it the forgotten lesson that an armys first duty is to be ready for war.

Regardless of who the next army chief is, the old problem will remain much as it was: how do you look generals in the eye and tell them the lay of the land when serious charges of corruption and financial wrongdoing are swirling around you and a landmark case, however it turns out, involving those charges is before the Supreme Court?

Consider this: if there was any financial scandal surrounding Gen Raheel would he have been the commander hes proved to be? The same principle applies to the political class. For exercising moral authority over the military arm, clean hands are a must and competence and knowledge become plus factors. But if your main concern is self-enrichment your vast holdings are both here and abroad, and conflict-of-interest is a notion that is simply beyond your comprehension, then you will keep having problems with the sword-bearers.

Just as an army cant do well for itself if it mixes business with the warrior principle, those entrusted with the responsibility of leadership betray their trust, and the mandate of heaven, when they use power for no other purpose than their own betterment.

Headache-free new school year

MANY parents will be busy in the next couple of weeks preparing for their young ones to enter school for the first time. There are many things to do, from buying necessities to registration.

They also need to mentally and psychologically prepare their children. Of concern is how to ensure they wake up on time in the morning. When is the right time to train them for this challenging change in routine?
