    ( August 6, 2013 -- Rose Dental Center

    Easton, PA's Rose Dental Center Helps Patients Improve their Smile Alignment with Invisalign

    One of the best ways to improve the overall appearance of your smile is by correcting tooth malalignment. Simple cosmetic adjustments can improve your confidence, self-esteem and oral health. Invisalign cosmetic aligners make gradually improving your smile simple and straightforward. Rose Dental Center offers these discreet and comfortable plastic aligners to their Easton, PA patients. With Invisalign aligners, patients can improve their smile and find confidence in their appearance.

    Invisalign is offered as an alternative to traditional metal braces. It is an excellent option for Easton, PA patients in need of mild to moderate tooth alignment. Rose Dental Center fits Invisalign patients with a custom plastic aligner that gradually moves teeth into a straighter position. Patients primarially choose Invisalign aligners because they appear nearly invisible when placed over the surface of the teeth. Since the aligners are so discreet, they are a great choice for adults and teens who feel uncomfortable making the commitment to traditional braces. With Invisalign, patients can straighten their tooth alignment with ease, knowing that they can feel confident when smiling and speaking through the entire process.

    Rose Dental Center's Invisalign patients find aligners to be a convenient, comfortable and simple smile straightening alternative. Since the aligners are removable, there is no need to adjust your eating habits for your orthodontics. Easton, PA patients only need to maintain their current brushing and flossing habits to keep their smiles healthy during the alignment process. If you are interested in how you can improve your smile alignment with Invisalign, please visit Rose Dental Center in Easton, PA for a consultation.

    If you have any questions about Invisalign, please contact Rose Dental Center in Easton, PA by visiting or calling 610-923-8340.

    Chicago, IL Dentist Mahesh Patel of Family Dental Care Straightens Smiles with Traditional Braces

    A beautifully aligned smile offers a number of benefits, ranging from oral health to aesthetics. Aligned teeth are easier to care for and help you find the confidence in an aesthetically pleasing smile. Dr. Mahesh Patel offers many orthodontic services at Family Dental Care, including traditional braces. Traditional braces and the advanced orthodontic technology utilized at Dr. Patel's practice help address bite alignment needs, while helping Chicago, IL patients find confidence in their smile.

    Traditional braces are an effective way to straighten teeth and correct bite issues. Although the process is simple, the orthodontic technology used to correct these problems is advanced. Metallic brackets are affixed to each tooth with an arch wire passing through each bracket. The braces can be tightened periodically to adjust the position of the teeth and straighten the smile over time. They allow Family Dental Care to adjust bite problems that are problematic for children after their permanent teeth have grown in, and for adults who have dealt with the problem throughout their life.

    Braces are a great way for children and adults to restore confidence in their smile. Dr. Mahesh Patel recommends that parents bring their children in for an orthodontic evaluation around seven years old. At this age, most of their permanent teeth will have already grown in and Dr. Patel can best determine their orthodontic need. If you live near Chicago, IL, Dr. Patel invites you to visit Family Dental Care for an orthodontic evaluation for you or your child.

    To learn more about how traditional braces can help you or your child in Chicago, IL, visit or call 773-489-2626 to schedule an appointment with Dr. Mahesh Patel at Family Dental Care.

    ( August 6, 2013 -- When Julia Ritzenthaler named her company Unique Online Furniture back in 2005, she did so with thoughtful intention. She knew she wanted not only her product selection to stand out above the rest, but her business model as well. Her client experience was well organized with multiple touchpoints to make sure the client was 100% satisfied with both the product and the company. Her team was trained to help lead clients to their perfect purchase, finding just the bathroom vanity to complete their bathroom remodel--even when it may not have been at their store. With the team and touchpoints in place, the sales began, and subsequently, so did the positive comments from clients. Many clients mentioned though that they wished their site at carried everything for the bathroom, rather than just bath vanities and mirrors.

    Since they view customer feedback as a gift utilized to improve their business, Julia and her team have been scouting vendors for quite some time to add the "everything else" to the site at It was important to ensure the products were not only up to the high quality standards they had set for their other items, but also that the manufacturers were as reputable and responsible to their clients as Unique is to theirs. It certainly wasn't a process that happened overnight. The team researched product selections, quality standards, and specific policies of the manufacturers to make sure they were in alignment with their own core values and policies.

    Finally, though, after much preparation, the team at Unique Online Furniture is proud to announce the launch of additional product categories. They have added shower panels, gorgeous bathtubs, toilets, among other accessories to complete a bathroom remodel. The items have been through the same quality tests as the rest of the bathroom vanities, decorative mirrors, and light fixtures they continue to carry. The brands will remain at prices competitive to other popular online stores. The main (and most important) difference is that these will come from a company that not only stands behind their products, but their clients as well.

    Additionally, should you have any product questions, the team has been expertly trained and already built an outstanding relationship with the manufacturers to get the answers the client needs in a timely fashion. And, on top of that, the Electrician, Contractor, and Designer have remained on staff to answer any technical or installation questions clients may have.

    ( August 6, 2013 -- The company Beauty Junkees was founded with the vision of offering honest reviews from not only experts, but from regular women as well. Since their inception, they've launched a blog featuring expert how to's as well as broadcasting quick tips and tricks on their social profiles like Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, and Google +. But simply being a "written" beauty resource didn't seem thorough enough to the women on the team. They also wanted to feature content on a platform that could visually walk their fellow "beauty junkees" through step by step tutorials while they did what they were talking about. YouTube, of course, was the perfect solution.

    Their first video to go live was a simple product video showcasing the individual sponges from the sample set they released to Amazon to rave reviews. The next video to go live was a quick tutorial on How to Apply Cat eye Makeup from one of the ladies on the team (and admitted Beauty Junkee) Hillary Hansen. "I was a little nervous about doing it. But I figured, heck, if nothing else it's a good tutorial by someone a 'regular gal' could relate to. I'm not super gorgeous or super glamorous or anything. I'm just the chick next door who likes to do makeup," Hansen laughed.

    The next set of videos to slated to launch will highlight how to use their popular blending sponges for the different stages of foundation application--starting with moisturizer, then to concealer, then foundation, then powder. They will also be shooting quick videos that feature tips from their cosmetologist and aesthetician on how to best utilize makeup tools and products in the consumers everyday routine, as well as additional video tutorials highlighting various different popular makeup looks.

    "My boss sent me a postcard a while back that read 'We're here to make good things happen for other people,'" Hansen commented. "And it's truly apparent in her vision with Beauty Junkees. She wants not only to offer stellar, guaranteed products, but she wants to offer free beauty tips and tricks for anyone who seeks them."

    Beauty Junkees founder, Julia Ritzenthaler, is equally as excited about the new brand. Besides the sponges, she plans to release other makeup tools that will be backed by the same quality guarantee. "We're working on a few other fun products right now, but I'm not going to spoil the surprise until they're actually available to the public."

    About Beauty Junkees

    Beauty Junkees main focus is to provide expert tested and female approved beauty products that are available to every woman, everywhere. By creating a product funnel of tested products like the makeup sponges already available, alongside a website packed full of great information from a licensed cosmetologist and esthetician, Beauty Junkees is going above and beyond to create a brand that not only offers quality products but free valuable information as well.

    ( August 6, 2013 -- Area homeowners gain valuable information about hiring a handyman or specialized home repair contractor for service

    Spicewood TX - A local home repair specialist was recently asked about the difference between hiring a handyman and a contractor for certain home improvement tasks. According to Hollis Sheppard, owner of HandyPro of Austin cost is one factor to consider when making the handyman versus contractor decision. A contractor's fee to handle small repairs on the homeowner's to-do list is not cost effective; but the handyman, who specializes in performing various tasks, is a more practical choice.

    Once the handyman is on site, moving from one small project to another it is more economical to be organized and have all the home repairs done right then rather than calling them back later. It is a good idea to have the to-do list prepared in advance so that the handyman can handle everything efficiently. In many cases the handyman can complete all the home repairs needed in just one day.

    Most people are very busy these days with little spare time to handle home repairs and seasonal maintenance chores. Jobs like this are perfect for the local handyman ( who makes his living moving from one job to the next. Even if a building contractor is willing to handle the smaller home repair jobs he will generally charge more. The contractor has a crew that depends on him for a full day's pay every day even if the job is small, so the handyman is a more practical choice.

    Hollis Sheppard recently posted a page on her website to address the handyman versus building contractor question. The post contains information about hiring a home service provider with great tips to ensure the right company is called to perform the work.

    ( August 6, 2013 -- Hardwood floor refinishing is practical and economical and has a dramatic effect in home improvement

    Barton Creek TX --- The Barton Creek Handyman website was recently updated with a page about restoring hardwood floors. The trend for installing or refinishing hardwood floors has grown with retail sales increasing annually. Hardwood floors have a dramatic effect on a home and they're one of the most popular home renovations for increasing value.

    Restoring hardwood floors is labor intensive, including preparation, sanding and finishing. The handyman suggests completely emptying the room first and assessing the amount of damage. Before sanding hardwood floors the boards must be secure and not warped. Hammer in any protruding nails with a nail setter to embed them so they do not tear the sandpaper.

    Trim molding must be removed before sanding. Start with a heavy grit and work down to a finer grit sanding slowly, with the grain, keeping the machine moving constantly.

    The final step is the most rewarding for the handyman. After sweeping and damp mopping the floor to remove all dust, apply a stain and clear polyurethane finish according to manufacturer's instructions to bring out the beauty and protect the wood.

    Hollis Sheppard, owner of HandyPro Handyman Services ( can handle this labor-intensive project as well as a wide variety of home repairs, remodeling and additions. Refinishing hardwood floors and doing the job correctly ensures the rich look and durability of hardwood for years to come.

    HandyPro home repair contractors arrive on time, in uniform, driving a clearly lettered, fully-stocked service van, prepared to start work right away. Customers are not expected to wait around all day wondering if a technician will show up. If they do not show up or call within one hour of the scheduled appointment then the customer will get $30 off their repairs.

    HandyPro home remodeling technicians respect their customer's home and clean up when they are finished. Not only is this a professional courtesy, it also becomes a safety issue if debris is left behind. Visit to learn more.

    ( August 6, 2013 -- The biggest home improvement review site in the UK has launched a brand new purchase protection scheme which will give homeowners free protection against shoddy home improvement providers.

    The All Checked Purchase Protection initiative gives homeowners, landlords and even tenants totally free protection when making a home improvement purchase from any company, anywhere in the UK. The site has launched the extra protection in response to comments from homeowners worried about whether or not they are making the right choice when selecting a tradesman to carry out a job.

    Having reviewed thousands of companies the length and breadth of the British Isles, and spoken with the nation's householders in every town and city around the country, the site is uniquely placed to advise and protect those embarking on a home improvement project.

    Greg Allen, founder of All Checked said, "Deciding to have work done at home can be the start of a very challenging process. Our users tell us that they often worry if they are getting a fair price, if their project will be completed correctly and efficiently and what steps to take if the contractor fails to deliver. We launched All Checked Purchase Protection in response to these concerns.

    "At All Checked we monitor hundreds of home improvement companies every week and when we speak, they listen. We realised that there was no one better to be on the homeowners side when a purchase is made."

    To qualify for All Checked Purchase Protection, shoppers simply need to register their preferred quotation on the All Checked website before buying. The quotation can be from any firm around the country for any job, large or small. The site will then provide independent protection for free, irrespective of which tradesman carries out the job.

    All Checked's Purchase Protection is comprehensive and includes free independent advice from an expert team at any time, a free independent quote check and a free quality check, which means the credentials of the chosen contractor will be independently verified and their standards or workmanship monitored. If any problems arise during the project, the Purchase Protection scheme also includes free arbitration and All Checked will even show customers how to claim their money back if the contractor fails to complete the project to the standards promised. What's more, All Checked Purchase Protection provides extra support before, during and after project completion, right through the guarantee period.

    All Checked is built on a search, check and review engine. Users can search for local home improvement contractors in their area by entering a postcode and then browse recent customer feedback or review contractors via the site's Best Local Company chart. Contractor credentials can then be checked by reviewing their profile page, ensuring a company that can be trusted is selected. Free Purchase Protection is then provided for complete peace of mind. When the project is complete, buyers are invited to leave their own feedback for the selected tradesman, helping to keep All Checked totally up to date.

    GEORGETOWN, Texas ( August 6, 2013 -- Ringdale®, Inc., an innovator of solid-state technology and manufacturer of commercial LED lighting fixtures, today announced the addition of the OLI Series Indirect 2x2 and 2x4 LED lighting panel to the line of ActiveLED® recessed downlighting panels for ceiling grids. The ActiveLED OLI (Office Light, Indirect) fixture delivers soft, glare-free illumination for offices and retail shops looking for an energy-efficient, maintenance-free, controllable solution for drop-ceiling lighting.

    Fluorescent lighting for use in ceiling grid installations continues to be a frequent choice notwithstanding a myriad of complaints by employees, customers, and management. Employees cite glare, noise, flickering, UV exposure, and headaches as problematic, while management faces the high costs of maintenance and energy consumption. Alternative lighting solutions exist but often come with complication or compromise. ActiveLED is a new generation of office lighting that addresses these issues with state-of-the art ActiveLED electrical and mechanical design.

    "Indirect lighting appeals to many due to its even illumination pattern and softer light," said Klaus Bollmann, president and founder of Ringdale. "The OL Series pleases both employee and manager. The natural, sun-like color produces beautiful light without eye strain, creating a more favorable office environment. Managers enjoy offering environmentally safe, durable lighting that cuts energy bills by more than half."

    The OLI fixtures join the ActiveLED OL Series, a portfolio of recessed downlighting panels comprising direct and indirect 2x2 and 2x4, direct 2x2, 2x4, and 1x4 lights for popular Imperial and metric ceiling grids. The OLI line is available in 26-, 38-, 52- and 75-watt versions, and customers can add a digital dimmer and motion sensor along with a selection of 2700K, 3000K 3500 and 5500K color temperatures. The innovative design is about half the thickness of traditional fluorescent fixtures and acts as a heat transfer barrier between air-conditioned office space and non-conditioned ceiling space.

    The 38-watt version of OLI-2 or OLI-4 replaces 70-watts of a fluorescent tube (or LED tube replacements of 2x32 watts + ballast/driver) with a ~50% energy saving. A fluorescent tube will lose 30% of its light output in the first 6000 hours of operation, while ActiveLED light fixtures are guaranteed to keep their light output for 10 years. All ActiveLED fixtures come with a 90,000 hour, 10-year, no light loss, no color change warranty.

    "We are always pleased to hear from our customers after they start seeing the long-term savings and benefits that come from a solution of not having to maintain and renew ballasts and fluorescent tubes. Our unique warranty is possible, and we prove it with every sale," concluded Bollmann.

    ActiveLED is available through Ringdale's direct sales force or through its network of resellers. For more information, visit the company online at or contact Ringdale in the United States at 512-288-9080 or in the United Kingdom at +44-1444-871-349.

    Ringdale, established in 1986, focuses on helping organizations incorporate green savings into their business environments. Ringdale provides ActiveLED® luminaires with patented, solid-state lighting control and thermal management technology. Ringdale, Inc. is based in the United States with offices in the United Kingdom, France, Germany, Japan, and Singapore and is part of the Network Technology PLC Group of Companies.

    ( August 6, 2013 -- Brooke Linville, owner of Home Candle Business, an independent Scentsy consultant, was recently honored for achieving the award of Scentsational Start Level 3 at Scentsy's annual convention in Indianapolis, Indiana.

    New consultants are given this award in recognition of sales performance and demonstration of leadership in building their sales team in their first 70 days with the company. Level 3 is the highest award given for new consultants and the only level recognized at the national convention. In 2013, there were a little over 100 consultants recognized for this honor.

    Brooke Linville started her Scentsy business in January 2013, and quickly grew her Home Candle Business Facebook page to over 13,000 fans. In six months, she has built a 20+ person, international sales team, and she continues to receive awards for her performance, including the monthly sales award and star trainer award - given to consultants who successfully train their team members. Linville attributes her success to creative marketing ideas and ongoing communication with her team members.

    "It's an honor to be recognized for this accomplishment," Linville said. "Building a business from the ground up is a little like jumping off a mountain for the first time. You prepare and train beforehand, but you cross your fingers when you finally jump hoping that all your equipment is working. And once you know it is, you take a big sigh of relief and enjoy the ride down. My parachute opened just like I expected after months of planning, and now I'm working to make the business ride the best one it can be."

    Scentsy is one of the fastest growing direct sales companies in the country and has recently expanded internationally with sales teams in the UK, Ireland, Germany, and Canada, and plans to expand to Australia, Mexico, and France in the fall of 2013. Scentsy was named to the Inc. 500 list in 2011, was listed by Fortune as one of America's 100 most promising companies, and is in the Top 20 of Direct Sales companies in the United States.

    Scentsy also launched two other brands in 2012: Velata, a fondue party company, and Grace Adele, a Scentsy purse and accessory line.

    ( August 6, 2013 -- Scentsy announced in July that it will be continuing its international expansion to Mexico and Australia following its successes in Canada, the UK, Germany, and Ireland. Scentsy's brands will launch in the two countries on September 1, 2013.

    Scentsy is a direct sales company based out of Meridian, Idaho, with over 200,000 sales consultants worldwide. It was founded in 2004 by Orville and Heidi Thompson who saw the product at a tradeshow and purchased the company. The initial product line included plug-in warmers that used a low-wattage Scentsy lightbulb to heat scented wax. The warmer concept provided a needed alternative to traditional candles.

    Scentsy's European expansion began in 2011 and has provided the company opportunities to expand their brand presence to an international consumer base.

    In 2012, Scentsy further expanded the business, though instead of expanding by locations, they added additional brand opportunities and renaming the umbrella company the Scentsy Family. The two new brands included both a fondue line, Velata, as well as a purse and accessory brand, Grace Adele.

    Both Scentsy Fragrance and Grace Adele will be launching in Mexico and Australia.

    Brooke Linville is an independent Scentsy consultant based out of Boise, Idaho, and owns Home Candle Business. She has an international sales team. "The international expansion is very exciting for the Scentsy Family," Linville said. "We are already in Canada, and Mexico is a very logical country for expansion and should bring numerous opportunities for existing consultants and those who are just starting to explore this business opportunity."
