Hazzouri


Scranton dentist Dr. Albert Hazzouri loves dropping the name of his friend, President Donald Trump, in the course of doing business.


The New York Times reported Wednesday that Hazzouri tried to get the federal government to buy coronavirus test kits from his associates. Hazzouri mentioned his Trump connection when he encountered resistance, the newspaper reported.


Two years ago, Hazzouri alluded to his Trump friendship as he sought a Florida dental license before state regulators.


Repeated efforts to reach Hazzouri on Wednesday were unsuccessful.


Citing unnamed sources involved with the Federal Emergency Management Agency’s operations, The New York Times reported Hazzouri repeatedly called FEMA officials and a separate team of Trump administration volunteers working on procurement. He wanted to help facilitate the purchase of about 100,000 kits from Mexico.


Hazzouri, 64, also mentioned his friendship with Trump while trying to obtain a

Do you have many patients with peri-implant mucositis? Do you know what is more important when treating these patients? Here are five tips:

1st Advice: Pay Special Attention To Risk Groups

Peri-implant mucositis is very frequent. Systematic work together shows that more than 63% of patients with implants consulted suffer from it. Smokers suffer especially. In the case of patients with total prostheses supported by implants, more plaque is usually found in the support elements than in patients with partial prostheses. Therefore, pay special attention to these patients at risk.

2nd Tip: Avoid Going Further

If peri-implant mucositis occurs, the situation may get even worse, and there is a risk of periimplantitis. To avoid this, it is necessary to reduce mucositis, since subsequent damage can be very serious. A measure of known efficacy is the mechanical removal of bacterial deposits. The additional use of selected preparations for the control of

personal-training-workoutAfter having spent the Summer back in the States, I returned back to London last month and straight back to work. Unfortunately my time away over the Summer has been spent largely socialising and catching up with friends and family. My fitness has frankly gone out the window, except for a few early morning jogs. So to kick start me back into a healthy regime I decided to try a course of personal training sessions once again, as this worked so well for me before. I was looking for intense results and the motivation to get me back on track.

My trainer Daniel turned up at my home and within a few minutes had analysed my lifestyle, eating habits and exercise shortcomings. With a knowing nod of his head, he assured me, “We’ll get you back into top shape, but you’ll have to make some changes”. Okay so I was
