Dentistry with a Heart

KINGSTON —This winter, dentists, oral surgeons, dental hygienists, dental assistants and office administrators will once again volunteer their time, energy and talent throughout the Seacoast area in what has become an annual event - “Dentistry with a Heart”.

“Dentistry with a Heart” is a national program that was established in the Seacoast area of New Hampshire in 1988. The roots of this program grew out of the efforts of many dedicated health care professionals in Cedar Rapids, Iowa in 1986. Hundreds of thousands of dollars of free dental services have been provided in the seacoast area alone since the program’s inception. This year’s program will continue its charitable philosophy of being available only to disadvantaged people without welfare resources or dental insurance.

Again this year the “Dentistry with a Heart” program is being organized by Dr. Brian Shuman, a dentist in Kingston. According to Dr. Shuman, “the essence of this program says that adults and children are invited to receive a dental service that can be provided in one visit. As we participate in this program, I realize that all dentists have many “service heart” experiences throughout the year, but the greatness of this event is that it gives the dental team an opportunity to act collectively. There is a lot to be said for the value of a unified effort.”

This year’s participants include: Dr. Robert Karelitz and Dr. Sheila Kennedy in Dover (749-6053) on Sat., February 9, 8:00 a.m. - 12:00 p.m.; Dr. Greg Shaker, oral surgeon in Dover (772-3161) on Sat., February 9, 8:00 a.m. - 12:00 p.m.; Dr. Neil Hiltunen, Dr. James Nash and Dr. Brian Maguire in North Hampton (964-6300) on Sat., February 23, 8:00 a.m. - 4:00 p.m.; Dr. Brian Shuman in Kingston (642-3276) on Fri., February 15, 9:00 a.m. - 3:00 p.m.; Dr. Puneet Kochbar, Dr. Renee Goodspeed and Dr. Raymond Laurion in Rochester (332-7300) on Sat., February 16, 8:00 a.m. - 12:00 p.m.; Dr. Stephan Peterson and Dr. Jessica Peterson in Dover (742-6546) on Fri., February 8, 8:00 a.m. - 12:00 p.m.; Dr. Carl Manikian in East Hampstead (382-8282) on Thurs., February 14, 10:00 a.m. - 5:00 p.m.; Dr. Andrea Herold in Portsmouth (436-3718) on Sat., February 16, 9:00 a.m. - 4:00 p.m. The above participants are by appointment only.

Dr. Skip Homicz and Dr. Peter Thomas in Hampton (926-8827) are available for walk-ins on Sat., February 23, from 8:00 a.m. - 12:00 p.m.

Patients are advised to make an appointment, as treatment will be limited to certain dates and available only on a first come/first serve basis. Patients that received services in October will not be eligible for the fall program.

  •  Successful Conservation Collaboration

    On June 17, the sophomore class of Sanborn Regional High School made a field trip to the Old Frye Town Forest, one of Kingston's five town forests, to assist the Kingston Conservation Commission in the removal of invasive plants from the area near the trailhead, notably, an extensive and aggressive patch of Japanese knotweed. This project was the culmination of the school's third year of intra-curricular collaboration with the Commission to address local environmental issues, and to make conservation an area of study and research. Congratulations from the Commission to the teachers and students for a job well done!
