Congratulations to Don McNamara,
Patient: Christy Madan
Business: Gold Canyon Candles
Dr. Wolf: You have an at-home business selling Candles and Bath and Body products. Can you describe what makes your products special?
Christy Madan: Gold Canyon is committed to helping you create ambience that is yours alone. Our scented candles, decorative accessories, personal care products and fragrances bring out the best in your home. With Gold Canyon, you can fill your home with fond memories, inspiring hopes, a feeling of onder, even a sense of calm. Whether it's the cool crisp fragrance of fresh cut evergreens or the aroma of warm apple crisp just out of the oven – our scented candles are "The World's Finest"®.
Dr. Wolf: What part of owning your own business do you find most rewarding?
Christy Madan: The most rewarding part of having my home based business is having the flexibility to work around my family. I don't have to commute to a job and place my child in daycare. It is also rewarding providing the BEST customer service with a product that people love and most importantly the opportunity to have Gold Canyon in their home by being part of my Candle Court or just making a purchase, the opportunity for extra income, or earning candles for FREE.
Dr. Wolf: Your company offers free products. How can our patients become eligible to receive your products for free?
Christy Madan: There are 3 ways you can earn FREE and discounted products
Dr. Wolf: What is the best way for our patients to see your product line?
Christy Madan: My website - www.scents2you.net. The catalog and products can be viewed and purchased there. They can also contact me and I am happy to set up a time to meet and review the products and to smell all our fragrances. I keep products in stock too, so if there is ever a need for a last minute gift I am happy to help.
Dr. Wolf: How would you describe your experience as a patient at Majestic Dentistry?
Christy Madan: Like my family. You were recommended to me by a friend. From day one I felt like you and your staff truly cares about my dental health and ME as a person. You have always made sure that I was comfortable and my experience is always painless. I also appreciate the way you support local business owner.
Dr. Wolf: How has your life changed since you've become a patient here?
Christy Madan: Since becoming a patient at Majestic Dentistry I have gained the confidence in my smile and I no longer have to worry about going to the dentist office being an uncomfortable visit.
Dr. Wolf: What would you say to a person who is thinking about choosing a new dentist?
Christy Madan: I would recommend you and your staff. The process is so smooth from the front desk knowing your insurance and answering questions, to the hygienist, and lastly you, Dr. Wolf. New patients will feel like you really do care about them.
Dr. Wolf: Thank you for your kind words Christy. We really enjoy burning your candles in our office.
Val, Sherry, Paula - your fabulous hygienists
Oral Cancer – Alarming Statistics
Did you know one American dies of oral cancer almost every hour of the day? Approximately 35,310 people in the US will be newly diagnosed with oral cancer in 2009.
Over 40% of those diagnosed will die within five years - National Cancer Institute.
The high mortality rate associated with oral cancer is due to late stage diagnosis. This is the third year in a row in which there has been an increase in the rate of occurrence. In 2007 there was a major jump of over 11% in that single year. The death rate in the United States is higher than that of cancers which we hear about routinely such as breast, cervical, Hodgkin's, prostate, liver, testes, kidney, thyroid and colon.
The incidence rate for oral cancer is 3 TIMES GREATER than cervical cancer in the US.
Exposure to the HPV-16 virus (human papilloma virus) is the fasted growing risk factor for oral cancer.
The mortality rate associated with oral cancer has not improved significantly in the last 40 years.
90% of oral cancer occurs in patients 45 years or older, which encompasses "all" 84M Baby Boomers.
An estimated 7,550 oral cancer patients died in 2007 (5180 men 2370 women).
Men above the age of 45 and elderly patients have the highest risk of developing oral cancer.
Men of African ancestry have an especially high risk in every age group. 90% of oral cancers are "Squamous Cell Carcinomas".
Those who smoke and drink, have a 15 times greater risk of developing oral cancer than others.
Oral Cancer Screening is essential to protect your health: this disease is treatable if detected early. At Majestic Dentistry, we offer every patient a quick, easy and affordable oral cancer screening, using the latest laser technology.
On behalf of myself and the rest of our team here at Majestic Dentistry, we'd like to express our deepest gratitude to you for being a member of our dental family. Thank you and have a happy and healthy Thanksgiving.
Dr. Frank Wolf
