The first patients were treated before 7 a.m. and the last left with a smile at 4 p.m. Everyone who showed up by noon was able to receive dental care. The 31 volunteers were exhausted yet satisfied that they had given their all to help their community.

The volunteers were Dr. Mitchel Friedman, Dr. Julia Cintron, Dr. Jeffrey Zatzkin, Dr. John Frattellone, Dr. Allan Ruda, Dr. Kayvon Haghighi, Dr Beth DeAngelis, Dr. Randy Davis, Dr. Dan Winston, Dr. Lauren Picciotto, Jennifer DeMarco, Jean Morris, Erica Loren, Laura Read, Quinn Kowal, Keary Bennett, Monique Sheary, Linda Paris, Roxanne Motley, Amanda Butler, Noah Schayowitz, Colleen Carey, Marcy Buckler, Stefanie Thomas, Ida Whittaker, Tricia McHugh, Kim Brooks, Melissa Muth, Mike DeMarco, Mike Strycharz and Allison Alanya

Marcy Buckler of LED Dental, developer the Velscope, was on hand to add her expertise. With the Velscope, volunteers were able to perform advanced oral cancer exams to detect suspicious cell changes under the surface of the skin. After consultation with the oral surgeons on hand, several people were offered free follow-up care after the event.

When the event ended 135 patients were seen and 540 procedures were performed. Parents brought their 2-day-old baby to the dental office because they both had been suffering with toothaches. A homeless couple appreciated the meal offered by volunteers after they received relief from painful infections.

“With such a great need in our community, one day is a pretty small thing; however we hope that we made a difference in the lives of those we treated,” said Dr. Mitchel Friedman, the event sponsor. “At the six events we treated over 800 patients. Our motto is always ‘Paying it Forward with Charity and Gratitude.’

“Our hope is that this continues to be an annual event and that by our efforts, others can be inspired to give back to benefit their community,” he said.

Heritage House Owner Attends Real Estate CEO Exchange


SHREWSBURY– Mary Burke, broker/owner, Heritage House Sotheby’s International Realty, recently took part in a two-day conference that included 150 of the most powerful and successful real estate brokerage leaders to exchange idea and strategies that are key to finding success in today’s slowly recovering market.

From California to Arizona, Florida and New Jersey, the panelists who took part in the session titled, Making Money in Your Market: Has Your Business Reached a Turning Point? are all prepared for a better future as we finish out 2012 and head into 2013.

“Experts are getting back into the market, not in a small way, but a grand way,” said John Featherston, president and CEO of RISMedia, who co-moderated the session. Succeeding in today’s new normal isn’t just about thinking outside the box. Real estate professionals have to go one step further and change the way they talk about the business.

“The importance of being a real estate marketer is greater now than it has been in previous years,” said Burke. “After listening to the panelists speak about where our industry is headed, I’m more confident than ever that our firm is on the cutting edge, thanks in part to our newly launched website and increased social media efforts.”

The firm’s website gives sellers a snapshot of their marketing campaigns, media partnerships, and extensive exposure, proven to help achieve the highest selling price in any market.
