The Rohrman Triathlon marks the expansion of the Tinman Rohr, a triathlon series begun by AUA four years ago in memory of AUA student Jonathan Rohr. Rohr was an accomplished triathlete who was instrumental in developing the sport in Antigua and Barbuda. He died in 2011 from an undiagnosed heart condition. AUA has been the race’s chief sponsor since its launch in 2012. Partners include the Government of Antigua and Barbuda, members of the Rohr family, and Observer Media Group.

U.S. Surgeon General, Dr. Vivek Murthy, graces the cover of the print publication. Through an exclusive interview with Mediaplanet, Dr. Murthy explains how he was inspired to practice medicine at an early age by his father, who was also a doctor. “Early on I learned that medicine is about more than making diagnoses and prescribing medicine,” he states. “It is about building relationships with people; relationships that are based on trust and mutual understanding.” He touches on several important health care topics including the importance of prevention and emotional well-being. “We have spent relatively little attention on emotional well-being, which is vital when it comes to improving health”, says Dr. Murthy. As Surgeon General, Dr. Murthy also spends time promoting equity of access to health care for all, saying that “we are one of the richest countries in the world, but we have such a wide disparity in terms of access to care and health care outcomes.

Dr. Kevin Hogan, a general dentist in Mt. Pleasant, SC, is now expanding his service reach to include new patients who are in need of dental implants in Charleston, SC. Patients can now turn to him for experienced dental implant treatment with or without a referral. With the use of the new Vatech PaX-i3D Green Cone Bean CT scanner, Dr. Hogan can perform guided implant surgery with a level of precision previously unfound in the industry. When patients lose their teeth, it can cause many different complications. The teeth begin to shift, bites change and other teeth have a greater chance of becoming loose and falling out. When patients choose to replace their missing teeth with dental implants in Charleston, SC, they can help prevent further problems with their bite, keep unseemly gaps from forming in their teeth and retain many of the daily joys of life that can be lost with one or more missing teeth. Patients can also be happy with the way they look when their implants are placed by a skilled dentist and the implant is undetectable to the naked eye. In addition to aesthetic benefits, there are great health benefits to choosing dental implants in Charleston, SC. When the body detects that there is no longer a tooth to be supported, the area of the jaw bone that would normally be responsible for that tooth may begin to weaken and reabsorption of essential minerals may occur. When severe, this bone loss can lead to deformation of the jaw and face. However, when patients receive dental implants, they can stimulate the jaw so that future loss does not occur. Those who would like to learn more about dental implants are invited to contact Dr. Hogan, a dentist dedicated to leading care to his patients. Call his office at 843-639-5921 to schedule an appointment. Dr. Kevin Hogan is a general dentist providing individualized care for patients in Mt. Pleasant, SC.

Dr. Kevin Hogan, a general and cosmetic dentist, is pleased to announce that patients can now receive treatment for their gum disease in Charleston, SC, with or without a referral. Dr. Hogan has opened his Mt. Pleasant practice to patients who may benefit from the LANAP® protocol, a laser dentistry procedure that targets infection without harming healthy tissue. The procedure is frequently preferred by dental professionals and patients for its numerous benefits over traditional gum surgery. Gum disease is a serious issue in Charleston, SC and around the nation. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, more than half of the U.S. population suffer from some form of gum disease. A major contributing factor to this high figure is that many people may fear gum disease treatment more than they fear the condition itself. This is because traditional gum surgery is invasive and involves a long, sometimes painful, recovery. With laser dentistry, however, many of these side effects are eliminated. Because Dr. Hogan uses a soft tissue laser to complete the treatment instead of a scalpel, patients experience less bleeding, less pain and less post-operative swelling. With the LANAP® protocol, patients do not have to endure stitches, long recovery times or multiple visits to the dentist’s office. Instead, the procedure can be completed in as little as one or two appointments, depending on the needs of the patient. Many patients return to their normal activities and routines in very little time. This is because while the laser vaporizes infected tissue, it also promotes healing. Those interested in using gentle, cutting-edge laser dentistry to treat their gum disease in Charleston, SC are invited to contact Dr. Hogan’s practice for more information by calling 843-639-5921. Dr. Kevin Hogan is a general dentist providing individualized care for patients in Mt. Pleasant, SC.

Dr. Kevin Hogan, a skilled general dentist, is pleased to announce he is expanding his practice and now accepts new patients for personalized veneers in Mt. Pleasant, SC, with or without a referral. Veneers are just one esthetic solution to creating a smile that inspires confidence in patients; Dr. Hogan offers leading dental treatments at his practice using the latest technology and leading dental techniques. With more than 30 years of experience in cosmetic dentistry, Dr. Hogan is proud to use his skills and training to help patients achieve their oral health and cosmetic goals. Veneers are a cosmetic dentistry procedure that create a straight, bright and seamless smile, immediately. Thin pieces of porcelain are designed and shaped like natural teeth and are placed on the front of each tooth. Each veneer is individually bonded to the teeth offering convenient and affordable corrections to numerous cosmetic issues including chips, cracks and discolored and crooked teeth. With proper care, veneers can last more than a decade. The power of an attractive smile has been shown to affect more than just a patient’s confidence, but their personal and professional relationships as well. Oftentimes, the time and expense required of a complete smile makeover with sometimes painful orthodontics or extensive reconstructive dentistry can discourage patients from achieving their ideal smile. Dr. Hogan understands that other forms of cosmetic dentistry may not be an option for everyone, which is why he is offering more patients the opportunity to experience the convenience of veneers in Mt. Pleasant, SC. Patients who would like to learn more about veneers are invited to contact Dr. Hogan’s office for more information or visit his website at http://www.smilesbyhogan.com.

Dr. Kevin Hogan is pleased to announce that the FDA has provided its first ever clearance for True Regeneration™ utilizing the LANAP® protocol. This is a major accomplishment in laser dentistry and illustrates the advantage of receiving treatments with this technique. As an experienced dentist in Mt. Pleasant, SC, Dr. Hogan is pleased to now accept new patients for LANAP® protocol treatments without requiring a referral. True Regeneration™ with the LANAP® protocol is a procedure that demonstrates the ability of laser dentistry to fully regenerate tissues that have been lost to disease. Tissues that can be regenerated with the advanced LANAP® protocol laser treatment system include cementum, periodontal ligament and alveolar bone. Dr. Hogan utilizes LANAP® in his practice to treat various stages of periodontal disease and help restore oral health. The new FDA clearance of the procedure illustrates its effectiveness and demonstrates its safety. Periodontal disease is experienced to some level by approximately 50 percent of the adult population in the United States. Out of these periodontal disease cases, approximately half of them can be classified as moderate to severe. However, a very small percentage of people with periodontal disease seek treatment for the condition, while nearly 40 percent of people with moderate to severe periodontal disease are unaware that they have it. Since periodontal disease has been linked to conditions such as heart disease, diabetes and other diseases, receiving treatment is of utmost importance. Some patients avoid treatment because traditional procedures for gum disease are invasive and can be painful. The LANAP® protocol helps remove fear of painful treatments by targeting diseased tissue in a gentle, minimally-invasive way. Patients with gum disease are encouraged to seek treatment from Dr. Hogan, a trusted dentist in Mt. Pleasant, SC.Laser dentistry with the LANAP® technique serves the purpose of not only targeting and treating diseased gum tissue, but regenerating lost tissue as well.

New patients with sleep apnea in Mt. Pleasant, SC, are now welcome to schedule an appointment with Dr. Kevin Hogan, without first receiving a referral. While some of the more common symptoms of sleep apnea, such as snoring and fatigue, may seem relatively harmless, if left untreated the condition can eventually have a negative effect on a patient’s overall health. Dedicated to his patient’s oral and overall health, Dr. Hogan encourages patients to treat their sleep apnea symptoms before they progress. According to the National Sleep Foundation, over 18 million Americans have sleep apnea. This condition is more common than most people realize, but it can be a challenge to recognize and diagnose since the majority of its symptoms occur during sleep. Symptoms can be quite varied, but often include chronic snoring, persistently feeling tired during the day and frequently waking during the night. While symptoms may at first seem bothersome, over time they can lead to depression, heart disease and other life-threatening conditions. There are two types of sleep apnea: obstructive and central. Obstructive sleep apnea is the most common and occurs as a result of restricted airways. During sleep, the airway collapses or becomes blocked, which inhibits natural breathing and minimizes the amount of oxygen the patient receives. In some cases, lifestyle changes may be recommended in order to minimize obstructive sleep apnea. Dr. Hogan also offers effective treatment options at his practice that deliver oxygen to the patient while preventing airways from collapsing or becoming blocked. Patients who believe their snoring, and other symptoms of sleep apnea in Mt. Pleasant, SC, could be a sign of something more, are encouraged to meet with Dr. Hogan for treatment. Appointments can be scheduled by calling his leading-edge practice at 843-639-5921. Dr. Kevin Hogan is a general dentist providing individualized care for patients in Mt. Pleasant, SC.

The importance of understanding all gender facial differences is critical in providing a successful cosmetic outcome. Men are a growing segment of the cosmetic industry. Understanding of the male face and its appropriate treatment with minimally invasive cosmetic procedures are essential. The aim was to investigate various facial ratios in Indian American men and to compare them with the Indian and Caucasian norms. Additionally, we wanted to evaluate whether these values satisfy golden and silver ratios. Direct facial anthropometric measurements were made using a digital caliper in 100 Indian American men students (18-30 years) at the American University of Antigua (AUA), Antigua. A set of facial ratios were calculated and compared with coefficients of variation (CV). Most of the facial ratios had small CV thus making them highly reliable due to reduced intra-sample variability. The upper face to face height and mandibulo upper face height indices were close to golden ratios whereas mandibulo lower face height, upper face height biocular width, and nasal indices were close to silver ratios. There was significant difference in most of the values when compared with previous studies. The present facial ratios data can be used as a reference value for Indian American men. © 2016.

Expert Review of Neurotherapeutics | Year: 2015

Parkinson's disease (PD) is a neurodegenerative disorder resulting from degeneration of the substantia nigra and the dopaminergic nigrostriatal pathway. Most treatments are geared toward the management and relief of motor symptoms in Parkinson's patients; however, as the disease progresses, various complications can be observed. Non-motor symptoms (NMS) may arise simply from the disease itself and are highly destructive to quality of life. These symptoms include mood disorders, cognitive dysfunction, pain, sensory dysfunction, and dysautonomia. Though it is undisputed that many NMS may appear years or even decades prior to the clinical diagnosis of PD, the focus of this review will be the overt motor phase of the condition. As such, the focus of this paper is to review the major NMS found in PD patients status post-diagnosis, their etiology, as well as treatment options available for the individual NMS. © 2015 Informa Uk, Ltd.
