National Children's Dental Health Month

The usually reserved professionals at Huszti Dental will do ANYTHING to promote good oral health with our kids including scripting, “singing” & filming an original rap music video. Counting down the days to it's premier ( 2/10/14).

According to the National Institute of health: National Children’s Dental Health Month is meant to raise awareness about the importance of oral health.  Why is this type of celebration—and year-round attention to children’s dental health--important? Despite the fact that it’s almost entirely preventable, tooth decay is the most common chronic disease in children. More than 40 percent of children ages 2 to 11 have had a cavity in their primary (baby) teeth, and more than two-thirds of 16- to 19-year-olds have had a cavity in their permanent teeth. Although overall rates of tooth decay have decreased over the past four decades, decay has actually increased in preschool age children in recent years.

The good news is there are safe and effective preventive measures that can protect teeth. Good oral hygiene practices such as thorough brushing with a fluoride toothpaste can help keep children from getting cavities. In addition, dental sealants and community water fluoridation are two other strategies that can help prevent tooth decay.

We're in the Newspaper!

On December 6, 2013 the Milford Times wrote ( Hometown newspaper):

International students learn at Huszti Dental

 
 

(From left) Dr. Ron Paler, Dr. Anna Chong-Huszti, dental students Gabriella Moura Chicrala and Alexander Maude Batitucci Ambrosia, and Dr. William Huszti at Huszti Dental Care in Milford. The students were visiting to learn more about American dental practices.

Brazilian dental students Alexander Maude Batitucci Ambrosia and Gabriella Moura Chicrala got a glimpse of dentistry in America, thanks to Dr. William and Dr. Anna Chong-Huszti of Huszti Dental Care in Milford.

The day’s activities included a thorough tour of the practice followed by a presentation about comfort technologies and techniques. The students received a hands-on demonstration of the various technologies within the office.

“I cannot believe something like Intraoral cameras even exist,” said Gabriella, “It’s incredible that patients can see what we see inside their mouths.”

Intraoral cameras are an important tool for diagnosing and communicating to patients, said William Huszti. The tool is a tiny video camera that allows dentists to zoom in on one tooth, and the image is displayed on a computer monitor.

“I never thought I would see an iPad in a dental office,” said Alexander, “What a great idea to provide patients with some enjoyment while in the chair.”

The 21-year-old students are both on the verge of graduation from the University of Sao Paulo.

“The entire teams at Huszti Dental Care feels very strongly about taking an active role in shaping the future of the dental profession, which starts with the students,” said Huszti.

The dentists were selected by the International College of Dentists (ICD) to represent an American model of dental care delivery. The exchange program, coordinated through the University of Michigan school of Dentistry, is a signature program at ICD and is a once in a lifetime opportunity for the students. The visit took place Nov. 20.

“It is an honor to be selected by the International College of Dental Students as a representative of dental care in America,” said Anna Chong-Huszti, “We enjoyed hosting the students very much and hope to welcome others in the future.

Oral health is a worldwide burden, 60-90 percent of school children and nearly 100 percent of adults have dental cavities, according to the World Health Organization.

Chicago Marathon & American Cancer Society


Dr. Huszti just returned from Chicago where he participated in his 11th Marathon. A big fan of the American cancer society he has been actively supporting them with his fundraising efforts and helping to raise awareness. Today he received this letter:  

Dear William,

Today, we want to report back to you on what some of our brightest researchers have been doing — to give you a sense of the kind of breakthroughs your support makes possible. As a committed American Cancer Society supporter, you are a vital partner in the fight to make this cancer's last century.


Just this week, it was announced that a former American Cancer Society research grantee is one of the three scientists receiving the 2013 Nobel Prize in Medicine or Physiology! Dr. James E. Rothman, along with two colleagues will be honored for defining the control of the movement of membranes in cells; which contributes greatly to the understanding of cell functioning in numerous diseases, including cancer. These internal cell membranes are key to the function of cells and the ability of cells to move, both of which are hallmarks of cancer cells. In 1982, while at Stanford University, and in 1988 while at Princeton, Dr. Rothman's research was supported by an American Cancer Society research grants.

Investing in researchers like Dr. Rothman is possible because of people like you. Here are just two of the other advances that may help cancer patients in the future that have been made possible by American Cancer Society supporters like you:

A new device that can detect tumor cells in your blood
The Herringbone-Chip is capable of finding rare circulating tumor cells also known as CTCs. CTCs are living tumor cells which are thought to be metastasizing and they are very hard to detect because very few of them are in the bloodstream. With this new microfluidics-chip, tumor cells could be found much earlier and could save lives.
 
 A new way to predict if aggressive cancers will spread or not
The presence of a specific type of molecule called miR-101 may be the link that allows doctors in the future to predict whether a tumor will remain contained or if it will be very aggressive and spread. What's more, new research suggests that some cancers could be contained by putting miR-101 into tumors that have lost it.
 
We thank you; cancer patients across the country thank you; and future generations thank you for being part of this fight.

Thank you. Please feel free to share this with friends or family who might be interested, as well.

Sincerely,

Your American Cancer Society

Marathon Count down...1 week


In just 7 days Dr. Huszti will be competing in his 11th marathon. He’s hoping to repeat his performance from last year and thereby qualify for entry in the prestigous Boston Marathon. In 2012 ( pictured above), to make every mile matter, he joined team DetermiNation to raise money for the American Cancer Society. This year he hopes to continue to raise awareness of this important issue. GOOD LUCK Dr. H, we’ll be rooting for you!

Cancer Prevention Information
One-third of all cancer deaths could be prevented with a healthy diet and exercise. The key to celebrating more birthdays is to stay well. You can do so by maintaining a healthy weight by eating right and continuing to exercise regularly , getting recommended cancer screening tests, and avoiding tobacco products. If everyone followed these steps, we could prevent half of all cancer deaths.
 Eat Right and Get Active
The American Cancer Society recommends a few steps to help you maintain a healthy weight:
•    Strive for at least 5 serving per day of vegetables and fruits.
•    Choose whole grains and limit the amount of red and processed meat you eat.
•    Limit the amount of alcohol you drink - men should have no more than 2 drinks per day; women should have no more than 1 per day.
•    Adults should get at least 30 minutes of moderate to vigorous physical activity on 5 or more days per week. Training for an endurance event easily helps you achieve this goal!
•    Maintain a healthy weight throughout life, and if you’re not at an ideal weight, make a plan to get there. The American Cancer Society can help.

Congratulations to Milford Memories race participants!



 The Carls Family YMCA was the gracious host for last Sunday’s Milford Memories races. As a result of the great weather or perhaps the challenge of a new race course on the beautiful Milford trail a larger than average number of runners turned out. Local favorites Mike Andersen, Cody Snavely, Brian Kettle and Doug Goodhue all distinguished themselves. Dr.'s Huszti along with daughters Olivia and Sophia enjoyed time with friends and a great race.  Congratulations to Dr. Huszti who managed a 1st place age group win (5K in the 40-49). For complete results: Milford Memories 5K,10K, 10 mile race results 2013


Sure we love brushing but exercise & fun are important components in your overall health too! It's not just common sense but increasingly proving to be good science. Take, for instance a recent study in the journal of periodontolgy indicating good diet & exercise can help keep your mouth healthy

Maintaining a healthy weight, getting regular exercise, and eating a proper diet are all good for you. But here are some new benefits for you to chew on: Research shows these things are good for your gums, too.

In a study published in the Journal of Periodontology, researchers found that people with this cluster of healthy traits are less likely to have gum disease than their overweight and inactive counterparts.

Dr. Nabil Bissada, chairman of the periodontics department at Case Western University School of Dental Medicine analyzed data from 12,110 participants in the National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey.

Healthy weight was defined as having a body mass index between 18.5 and 24.9, while engaging in the recommended amount of exercise meant moderate-intensity workouts five times or more per week or vigorous activity three or more times per week. Diet healthfulness was rated on an index of healthy foods, with a score higher than 80 considered a sign of having a "high-quality diet."

While health experts have long hyped the importance of keeping a healthy weight, staying active and eating a good diet, the researchers found that only a small percentage actually manage to do all three. "Only about 3% of the entire group maintained normal weight, engaged in the recommended level of exercise and had a high-quality diet," they wrote. More than three out of 10 participants reported practicing none of the three habits.

These figures could, in reality, be even worse, given that the participants self-reported their weight and exercise and food habits - things people don't always recount accurately.

Gum disease rates were lowest among people who fit all three of the healthy-living criteria. While 18% of participants who reported none of the three traits had gum disease, only 7% of those who maintained a health weight, were physically active, and ate a healthy diet had gum problems.

After adjusting for such factors as age, gender, race, smoking habits, diabetes, time since last dental visit, and other differences between subjects, the researchers found that each trait - normal weight, healthy diet, and active lifestyle - was associated with a 16% decrease in gum disease risk. Having two of the habits lowered the risk of gum disease by 29%, while having all three was associated with a 40% lower risk.

While the study doesn't explain the reason behind this link, the researchers have several theories. Among the possibilities they note are the suggestion that eating fruits and vegetables may remove plaque from the teeth, and the notion that obesity promotes inflammation, which is linked to gum disease, while physical activity may decrease it.

Previous studies have linked gum disease with an increased risk of heart disease and stroke, pregnancy complications, and other health problems.

“Runners united to remember”

 On Wednesday April 24 Dr.’s Huszti & Chong , along with their daughters, participated in a special run at Kensington park. The event “Runners united to remember” was organized to show support to those effected by the recent tragedy in Boston. As Dr. Huszti pointed out

“ It’s inspiring to see everyone pull together as a community”.

 It was a great night with over 1,000 participants of all ages. In all over $14,000 was raised .


Beyond the terrible events of that day several Milford area runners distinguished themselves in the race.

According to the Milford Times: Milford cross country coach Brian Salyers had quite a day Monday, preparing his team for the biggest meet of the year tomorrow with division rival Grand Blanc.
As a massive running fan, he was also trying to keep track of how the Boston Marathon was going, and especially how his former runner Mike Anderson was doing along with Milford cross country assistant coach Mike Camilleri.
Anderson blistered the course for a lifetime best 2:25.19 to finish in the top 50
overall. Camileri wasn’t far behind in 2:34.03, also a lifetime best to crack the top 125 overall.
But as Salyers was preparing to go outside for practice with the track distance runners, he started to get the bad news. Something had gone horribly wrong with the Boston Marathon.
Good thing for all involved in this story, the two runners were finished more than an hour before the bombs ruined what is considered the Holy Grail of marathons.
“It’s kind of surreal,” said Salyers. “Fortunately, both them got right back with me. Mike Anderson was stuck in an apartment … but he was safe and OK.
“Cam, same thing, ‘I just got out of town. I’m safe and OK.”
Salyers reflected on how quickly the day changed for the two runners.
“They both had incredible races,” he said. “You have that high and then, all of the sudden, well, what meaning does that race have. It’s all secondary to human life.”
Salyers said his phone  was blowing up at practice with good news and people looking for answers.
“How are Mike and Mike? Are they OK?” Salyers said of what was coming across on his phone.
The two are fine, but Salyers knows what was supposed to be a great day for the two will never be the same.
“The Boston Marathon is a goal-driven entity. It has a persona all of its own,” said Salyers. “Mike was going there to run Boston to say he’s run the Boston Marathon.
“That experience is going to be tarnished.

Volunteering: committee for communication, education & awareness


On Friday March 22 Dr. Huszti traveled to Okemos and the headquarters of the Michigan Dental Association to participate as a member of the committee for public awareness & education. Our current campaign for public health “A healthy body starts with a healthy mouth” has been very well received. Recognizing Michigan’s lead Connecticut and several other states are planning on emulating the MDA’s stance.

A new website design has made www.SmileMichigan.com more relevant and user friendly. According to the new home page: “Welcome to Michigan’s number one source for oral health care and home of more than 5,500 Michigan Dental Association members. Our dental professionals take good care of your teeth and your overall health, too, by recognizing signs of other potential problems in your body. We’re here to help in lots of ways like answering questions about oral health, dental insurance, teaching aids and more.

 The MDA is Michigan's Oral Health Authority dedicated to the Public and the Profession. Dr. Huszti enjoyed the day spent in various meetings and is quick to point out  “ There’s a lot of dedicated people working hard to keep Michigan smiling!”

Staff appreciation: spa day

We’re proud of our team. It takes a special group of professionals to make it fun to go to the dentist. That’s why we take every opportunity to let our staff know how much we appreciate them.  This years festivities began at Lelli’s restaurant in Novi. After a wonderful lunch the party continued at Vision’s spa with a massage and pampering at Vision’s spa.

 How appropriate to offer the team that pampers our patients the opportunity to be on the receiving end!
