Patients Receive Optimum Care at The Dental Care Group

Going to the dentist used to be about teeth cleanings, filling cavities, pulling wisdom teeth, possibly a root canal and learning if braces were in your future. Not any more, as medical research is continually uncovering strong links between the health of your mouth and the overall health of your entire body.  Modern medicine has shown that bacteria, infection and inflammation in your mouth can lead to problems in the rest of your body.  We now know that there is a direct relationship between periodontal (gum) disease and diabetes, heart disease, stroke, pancreatic cancer and even early term pregnancy.  Given these important findings, the dentists at The Dental Care Group are at the forefront of taking a holistic approach to treating their patients.  

Upon first visiting The Dental Care Group, patients are asked to complete a detailed medical history.  Then, before any treatment is begun, each patient will have their blood pressure taken.  On multiple occasions, when extremely high blood pressure has been detected, patients have been sent directly to their physician's office or to the hospital to seek urgent care as their previous undetected problem required immediate attention.

Next, in addition to routine radiographs, a panoramic radiograph is performed.  Panoramic x-rays are very high tech and cover a broader area than conventional intraoral x-rays and, as a result, provide valuable information.  They can reveal an existing issue or potential problems such as advanced periodontal disease, oral cysts, tumors and oral cancer, impacted teeth, TMJ and sinusitis.

Patients are then offered the opportunity to take a simple OralDNA® salivary test.  This test analyzes a patient’s saliva to determine if there are elevated levels of bacteria by identifying and analyzing 11 different types of microbes related to periodontal disease.  Patients with elevated bacteria levels are prescribed customized hygiene procedures and antibiotics which target the specific bacteria at issue, thereby eliminating a risk factor for other medical problems.

A six-step oral cancer screening is also conducted.  Using this process, the health professionals at The Dental Care Group have identified cases of oral cancer at their earliest stages enabling patients to successfully treat their disease.  As part of their dental team, The Dental Care Group has a board certified Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeon on staff to develop a specific treatment plan if oral cancer is present.

At the end of the visit each patient is educated about the latest in dental stem cell research.  When teeth come out during normal dental care, the stem cells inside can be saved for future potential medical or dental use. Patients can opt to preserve stem cells from baby teeth, wisdom teeth or healthy teeth extracted for orthodontic reasons.

The doctors at The Dental Care Group plan for the immediate and long term health of their patients.  Dr. Mars, Dr. Glicksman or Dr. Coussa review all of the above information with each patient and discuss their personalized road map to achieving a healthy mouth, a healthy body and a beautiful, confident smile. Through continuing education and the acquisition of the latest technology, the doctors practice a holistic approach which provides total health and wellness for their patients.

Real Estate: Reaching Out to China

As the real estate market is coming back up from the recession we had a few years ago, realtors are making big plans. One of these realtors is Aviva Eyal. Eyal is with the Keyes Company as a top international realtor, and specializes in luxury real estate right here, in Florida. Thinking outside the box, or more like outside the country, Eyal wants to branch out to China, hoping to interest them with real estate opportunities in the sunshine state.

Not only is Eyal a good realtor, but her international background gives her a leg up on the competition. She has lived in various places, including Taiwan, Israel, London and Germany. She has also studied at Tel Aviv University in Israel, and Su Chow University in Taiwan. To add to the list of international credentials, Eyal also knows how to speak Chinese, Hebrew, and English. Eyal couldn't
have picked a better time to branch out and further her opportunities and with her background in marketing and finance, the Chinese will definitely acknowledge her.

The Future of Digital Media and You: How to Become an Indispensable Member of a Growing Community

Think of the most visually impressive film you’ve seen recently. It is likely that you’re now imagining what it was like to see Tony Stark’s Iron Man suit assemble on its own or perhaps what it felt like to see Vin Diesel making those sharp turns around winding roads in Fast & Furious 6.

Summertime marks the season of movie blockbusters—so let’s shine a spotlight on a college that breeds the creative, computer-savvy minds behind our favorite flicks, as we take a look at Boca Raton’s very own Digital Media Arts College.

The Digital Media Arts College, (DMAC), is responsible for providing programs to those who are passionate in any or all forms of digital media. With Hollywood being out of reach for many, the local campus is an ideal stepping stone for anyone looking to make their mark in modern day advertising, visual effects animation, web design, and beyond.

Have you ever stayed after the movie to watch the credits? The list of necessary animators and designers goes on nearly as long as the movie! And as the norms of media are becoming as advanced as they are, it seems that the degrees offered by DMAC are as in high demand as ever.

Like any college, DMAC provides students with all the necessary tools they need to have an ideal college experience. With active financial aid programs, housing assistance, and student life, DMAC students are encouraged to continue their education outside the classroom as they socialize and build connections with fellow creative minds.

Not only does DMAC offer both undergraduate and graduate degrees, and various certificates, they also provide students with opportunities for further education post-graduation. DMAC keeps their doors unlocked to alumni, so that they may return to campus to refresh skills that are particular to their major at any point after graduation, free of charge. And with technologies changing at the rapid pace that they do, such an offering puts DMAC on another level in terms of career-oriented training.

Reach your creative potential at DMAC and maybe it will be your name we see scrolling in the credits this next summer.

For more information on programs offered by DMAC and enrollment information, visit their website.

Avanti Way Celebrates the Opening of a New Location!

Roll out the red carpet! Avanti Way threw an exclusive launch party to celebrate the grand opening of its new office at 444 Brickell Avenue, Miami. Guests were treated like royalty as they posed for pictures in front of the step and repeat, and mingled with agents and  real estate professionals from across South Florida. Right in the heart of downtown Miami, the party took place on the outside terrace underneath a blue lit tent highlighting Avanti Way’s blue and white technology color scheme. A delicious spread of delicacies satisfied party goers palates, while Frost Shot supplied liquor-flavored ice pops, keeping everyone cool amidst the South Florida heat.

  This was not your average grand opening party; Avanti Way teamed up with Citizens for a Better South Florida who reminded us how simple it is to stay aware of our environment while living here in South Florida. Avanti Way presented a donation to Citizens for a Better South Florida and as the party came to a close guest were reminded to come stop by the new office and to always remember, "there's the wrong way, and then there's the Avanti Way."

Take a moment to determine what truly inspires you.

Now combine that with philanthropy. Giving back is about linking passion with action and it doesn't have to be complex.

Ascendant Planned Giving, Inc.  works with individuals, families, charitable organizations, and small businesses helping them plan, assess and manage their charitable endeavors. Ascendant focuses on helping families and small businesses integrate philanthropy into their lives, while showing nonprofit organizations how to attract long-term support using planned giving programs.

You get what you give. We all have the power to give of ourselves and for many of us, the power to give of our wealth. It is with the shared vision of a better future for all, that challenges are faced head-on, obstacles are overcome, opportunities are exposed and access is granted. Philanthropy is our contribution to a better world. Not only will it change your life, but someone else's life too. Together, we can make a difference.

Art Siegel Showcases 3D Art

Art work by internationally known artist, Art Siegel, is now open for public view in Boca Raton’s Museum of Art until July 14th. Not only are his works inspirational, they are also three - dimensional. Although Art has been getting a lot of attention in Boca Raton, his pieces hang in different homes varying from Montreal to South America.

Siegel’s 3D pieces focus on the background scenery, rather than the actual subjects. “Everything that appears on the screen must serve as credible context for the story,” Siegel says. Some of Art’s three dimensional works include titles such as Number 6 to Pelham Bay and 7th Avenue Local.

Making artwork is not the only limitation for Siegel; it has also enabled community involvement by working with charities. On Thursday May 23rd, two of Siegel’s pieces will be shown at Yaacov Heller’s Gallery 22 for a cocktail and cupcake reception benefitting The Multiple Sclerosis Foundation (MSF). The guests at the event will have a chance to meet him and learn more about his art work. Thanks to all of our sponsors: Tito’s Vodka, Mediterranean Specialty Products LLC, AllStar Cupcakes, and Caruso’s Ristorante.

Drinking water is one of the most vital components of our daily diets.  Nitrate levels in drinking water are considered an absolute indicator of overall water quality.  Most bottled spring water contains a rising level of nitrates and consuming them can be a potential health problem.  Not SNO Iceland glacier water!  SNO is 100% natural and unadulterated meaning it is untouched, unchanged and contains zero nitrates.  If nitrates are one supplement you'd rather not find in your water, consider licking a 20,000-year-old Icelandic glacier for the ultimate pure water.

Doctors and nutritionist suggest that the average adult should consume at least 8 glasses of water on a daily bases or 2 x 1 liters of SNO.  SNO comes from the 20,000-year-old famous Eyjafjallajokull Glacier where it is filtered naturally thru layers of volcanic rock, giving it the purity, natural balance and crisp refreshing taste that nature intended (  For your health and optimum body function drink SNO Iceland glacier water.

Always Opportunities!

Our organization, TransMedia Group, is the one of the largest independent PR firms in South Florida and been in business since 1981. We are a full service public relations firm; headquartered in Boca Raton with offices world-wide.

Students that have been accepted for our internship program gain hands on experience and create contacts in the industry.

We offer students non-paid internships to assist in both our English and/or Hispanic department. Our schedule is flexible and students that take the opportunity on our internship program learn a vast array of “on the job” type training and learning. This includes, but not limited to, attending client meetings and taking notes, drafting and writing press releases, working with press; phone calls, emails, extensive research, creating pitches, brainstorming angles for different pitches and updating their resumes and portfolio as they will create paste ups of their placements. Also, attend any upcoming events if schedule permits.

On a daily basis, work is being done to ensure that they are learning from each task. When a student completes their internship, they leave with a feel for hands on experience by “out of classroom” career typesetting knowledge of the PR business. They also have the start of contacts they’ve created in the industry.

The internship program we have (recent College Graduates also welcome), is as important for the student as it is for our business. We do critique work and give them an overview of what/how they can improve as well as their strong points and what they might want to work on a bit.

Feel free to contact us, should you need additional information. We look forward to working with students and or recent graduates.
