  3. 3. A Little Or A Lot You can decide how far to go What would it take to keep you smiling and happy? Happiness is a serious issue. Don’t laugh – there’s an actual institute dedicated to researching the topic. One thing is for certain: relationships, work, and social confidence can be affected by your smile. Whether you need just a little bit of help or a complete smile makeover, here are some options that we can use alone, combined with each other, or in combination with other cosmetic options.

White tea has become the infusion of choice among tea – and health – aficionados because it can help your body’s immune system IDEALIZE to fight off viruses and dangerous infection-causing bacteria. Fluoride-rich white tea can also help to prevent the growth of dental plaque – the root cause of tooth decay and gum disease – without staining. Steamed instead of processed, its silvery leaves remain so close to their natural state that white tea also retains more of the powerful anti-oxidant that fights and kills cancer-causing cells than any other type of tea. You can enjoy this refreshing non-staining brew in a cup or in anti-viral and anti-bacterial toothpastes enhanced by the ML09-5 addition of white tea extract. 3
  4. 4. Famous Patient Profile Ann (center) with Andrea & Sandra Ann Bingham Freeman Artists generally think “outside the box.” Dynamic artist and patient Ann Bingham Freeman thinks outside the globe. She’s contributing her highly expressive talent to the traveling exhibit, “Cool Globes: Hot Ideas for a Cooler Planet.” The project is meant to spread awareness of global warming and present possible solutions. Using a five foot wide fiberglass globe as a canvas, Ann collaborated with two artists/friends from Chicago (birthplace of the project two years ago), Andrea Harris and Sandra Bacon. The result is a colorful world map wake-up call to save all rainforests. Ann painted the Australian continent and molded indigenous animals in relief, to emphasize One of Anne’s bronze figurines the unconscionable phasing out of species as deforestation continues. Such nature-themed imagery is rampant in Ann’s Yucaipa workshop, where bright, colorful canvases of her stylized human and animal figures compete for visitor attention against hand painted tiles, welded sculptures and, her latest love, cast bronze figurines. Ann’s a veritable art media junkie. That she was invited to share in the creation underscores her reputation among artists. Equally meaningful to her is having the opportunity “to let people know how important it is to conserve the environment.” Ann, we are all green with pride at your accomplishment!
