KENS 5 TV’s ‘Great Day SA’ Showcases Eco-Friendly San Antonio Cosmetic Dentist Edward Camacho

The KENS 5 morning television show “Great Day SA” recently featured veteran San Antonio cosmetic dentist Dr. Edward Camacho, DDS, showcasing not only his skill at creating beautiful smiles, but also his practice’s commitment to an eco-friendly dental practice.

San Antonio, Texas (PRWEB) August 13, 2011

The KENS 5 morning television show “Great Day SA” recently featured veteran San Antonio cosmetic dentist Dr. Edward Camacho, DDS, showcasing not only his skill at creating beautiful smiles, but also his practice’s commitment to an eco-friendly dental practice.

The segment, “Get the Smile you Always Wanted,” aired July 20, and is showcased on the KENS 5 website.

Cosmetic Dentistry of San Antonio - operated by Dr. Camacho and his wife and practice manager June - has attracted attention since the new North Side location opened last fall, because of the Camachos’ commitment to create a green dental office focusing on a holistic approach to a patient’s overall health.

“We were extremely excited to be able to showcase our new eco-friendly office on ‘Great Day SA’,” Dr. Camacho said. “It gave us a chance to show how everyone can make a difference.”

“We focus not only on cosmetic dentistry, but also on overall health, by helping to educate our patients.” Dr. Camacho said. “We do this by posting weekly health and wellness related articles on our website.”

“Part of this also includes our commitment to being as green as possible,” added June Camacho, who also publishes a weekly green tip, along with natural health and beauty articles. “This is healthier for our patients and our staff.”

“We are a ‘paperless’ office, which means there are no paper charts for patients” Dr. Camacho said. “We feature digital X-rays so patients and staff are not exposed to toxic developing chemicals and it also reduces radiation by about 80-90 percent. And we have an amalgam separator so that mercury fillings we remove from teeth do not go into our city water system.”

Dr. Camacho says he has not done mercury (silver fillings) for more than 12 years, but the majority of the fillings he removes from patients' teeth is silver fillings. The filtering system keeps the mercury out of the water supply.

“Our patient toothbrushes are made from recycled plastic, and a portion of the proceeds go to help clean water programs in developing nations,” June Camacho said. “We use the least toxic materials that still deliver the best quality dentistry. For example, the brand of dental sealants we use is free of BPA, a toxin found in plastics.”

“All dentists use instruments and certain things that can be sterilized, but you cannot avoid throw away items such as gloves, gauze, patient napkins, paper towels, etc. You cannot avoid some throw away items in the health care industry,” Dr. Camacho added. “We make every effort to constantly research and find the most eco-friendly office products we can. If everyone does just a little it can make a huge difference.”

CDSA has taken other steps to enhance the environment of the office, June Camacho said:

“Our physical facility has no carpet. Carpet is not environmentally friendly and is just plain unsanitary in a dental office. We use only green and environmentally friendly cleaning products in the office. We use a green pest control service since pest control has some of the most toxic chemicals.

“We also feature special plants in our office that help to clean the air. We all know from our basic high school botany that plants remove CO2 and produce oxygen, but there are certain plants that can actually improve indoor air quality as proven by researchers at NASA. Not only are the plants aesthetics, like our facility, they also serve a purpose.”

San Diego Cosmetic Dentist Discusses the Key to Successful Smile Makeovers

For San Diego cosmetic dentistry practice Mission Trails Dentistry, the trend of reality television makeovers and the direct-to-consumer marketing of teeth whitening have meant an increase in popularity of smile makeover procedures. With so many options available to consumers to improve their smiles, Dr. James Salazar, an AACD accredited cosmetic dentist in San Diego, CA, says asking dentists about their experience in performing cosmetic procedures is now more important than ever in order for patients to increase their chances of the best results.

San Diego, CA (PRWEB) August 11, 2011

According to an American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry (AACD) survey, 99.7 percent of Americans think smiles are an important social asset. James Salazar, DDS, one of just twelve AACD accredited dentists in San Diego, says smile makeovers have risen in popularity as a comprehensive procedure involving cosmetic dental enhancements that can include porcelain veneers, InvisalignR, and teeth whitening. Through this combination of cosmetic and restorative procedures, dentists take into account the size, shape, symmetry, and shade of a patient’s teeth and apply the necessary techniques to achieve the proper results.

“Any patient considering a ‘smile makeover’ should ask their dentist about the education in cosmetic dental procedures that the doctor has undergone,” said Accredited AACD member and San Diego cosmetic dentist Dr. James Salazar. “If he or she is an accredited member of the AACD, it’s usually a good indicator that they’ve had extensive training in cosmetic procedures.”

The AACD recommends that patients ask for a dentist’s previous work portfolio, current patient references, and continued educational experience before making a selection. Dr. Salazar also says that having a dedicated and personalized approach to each patient is one of the most important keys to a successful smile makeover. Mission Trails Dentistry seeks to emulate this approach by focusing on providing its patients with the most comprehensive and individualized care possible, he adds.

About Dr. Salazar

Dr. James D. Salazar graduated from San Diego State University and the University of California - San Francisco Dental School. He is a member of the American Dental Association, the California Dental Association, and an accredited member of the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry. Dr. Salazar has been in practice with Mission Trails Dentistry for over ten years. He is one of twelve dentists in the San Diego area to achieve accreditation by the AACD.

Premier League - Pennant 'hid cosmetic surgery'

Stoke City winger Jermaine Pennant reportedly told his family he had "hit his head" to hide the fact that he had cosmetic surgery in May.

Pennant (pictured in April) underwent a three-hour procedure at an exclusive Harley Street clinic to pin back his prominent ears, according to The Sun.

And on his return home, he told then fianc?e Lara Murphy that he had hit his head and needed treatment in order to avoid revealing the supposedly embarrassing surgery.

Pennant, who has a child with Murphy and became engaged to her last May, reportedly left her for glamour girl Alice Goodwin recently.

Responding to someone who tweeted Goodwin to say he would cheat on her "again", he wrote: "@M1050 stop hating lad... Hahaha we are very happy actually.'"

Pennant has a past littered with well-publicised flings - including with Hollyoaks actress Jennifer Metcalfe - as well as driving convictions.

He maintains a longstanding commitment to the education and training of the next generation of plastic surgeons, and recently returned from the Aesthetic Plastic Surgery and Anti-Aging Medicine symposium held in New York. Dr. Sullivan says he hopes his lectures on the latest developments in procedures such as neck rejuvenation and facelift inspire the future generation of aesthetic healthcare providers to pursue innovation with similar vigor and dedication.

Providence, RI (PRWEB) August 09, 2011

At his Rhode Island plastic surgery practice, Dr. Patrick Sullivan discusses the latest developments in aesthetic science and facial rejuvenation, along with the need to inspire future generations of cosmetic plastic surgeons to push innovation in their industry.

He further emphasizes the integral role plastic surgery conferences play in the education and inspiration of future generations of cosmetic plastic surgeons. To continue to provide patients with the safest and most effective results, he adds that taking part in this innovative drive—not merely keeping up with it—is essential.

Patients of Dr. Mondavi have the options of porcelain veneers, fixed bridges, dental implants and Invisalign for smile enhancement.
