Pen Argyl Leaf Removal
Pen Argyl Borough leaf removal is underway. No leaves should be placed out for collection from 11/21/14-12/1/14 due to Thanksgiving Holiday and holiday light installation. Collection will resume on 12/2/2014 and continue through 12/05/14.
Leaves will not be picked up if they have sticks, acorns or animal feces in the piles. Avoid putting leaves out 2 days before rain or foul weather, especially in the hilly areas of the Borough.

Ask The Doc........
by Dr. Gary Williams, DMD
Well, it’s that time again! In most North American homes, the count-down is on for the beginning of a new school year.
It always gets me thinking about the great sampling of people we see in our dental office. From newborns to 90-somethings.
Last week someone asked me the question, “looking in the mouths of many 40 and 50 year-olds, what could have been different if health was addressed when they were, say…15 years old? The answer is a resounding, a lot!
We realize that we do have the opportunity and know-how to change the health future for today’s school kids.
In the year 2014 we have the advantage of all the research, learning, and yes, mistakes that have been made by humans, to learn from. And what does that information say?
Step in early (school age), and maximize every variable for success. Dentistry knows how to achieve a successful long-term outcome. Once dentistry, parents and children comply; we can change the future of your family’s overall health, for the better. Call a Dental Professional today, and change your future.
