‘Happier to be free:’ Abuse survivor cries for joy after dentist fix broken teeth for free

A Lantana woman had always been strong and independent.

When she finally walked away from her five-year abusive relationship, she noticed she had briefly lost many of her hardworking assets.

The 32-year-old, who wants to be identified as Jane, is rebuilding her life and is using her experience to help others realize they can live a life they’re proud of and deserve.

“I knew his behavior was wrong. I knew the situation was wrong. I was trying to get out of it, but they trap you,” she said.

The most recent done at the hands of the man Jane thought she knew and loved left her bloodied and bruised, with horrible marks on her face.

“He punched me in the face and knocked me cold to the ground,” she said. “Thankfully, I’ve never seen his face again.”

Jane broke her silence about her abusive relationship while in the hospital that night. Jane says victims don’t deserve to have their world unraveling on the inside, they need to tell someone.

“I felt like I put myself in this position and that I needed to get myself out of it, so I was honestly working to try to get myself out of it,” she said. “You need to ask for help, you need to tell people your situation, you need to accept the help.”

In this season of giving, dentists at Spodak Dental Group in Delray Beach want to turn her tragedy to triumph. For them, that’s helping to boost her self-esteem and sense of self-worth with a restored smile at no cost.

“My sincere hope is that her confidence and her strength, sends a message to someone at home who is in an abusive relationship to not take it anymore,” said Dr. Craig Spodak of Spodak Dental Group. “To take care of their family and leave a relationship like that.”

“I have a great view on life. I am so happy right now, I never felt happier to be free. I won’t let this define me in anyway shape or form,” Jane said. “I had no idea of the resources that were out there.”

There are several resources available in Palm Beach County, including Aid to Victims of Domestic Abuse, or AVDA, with a team working around the clock to get survivors shelter and transitional housing. Right now, they’re getting between 180 to 200 calls a month, a significant climb.

“We’re finding unfortunately that the violence level, the lethality level of these situations, is very high, guns are involved, multiple children,” said Jennifer Rey, Program Services Director at Aid to Victims of Domestic Abuse.

While it’s high, she says rooms are available and safety measures are in place for those who want to reach out and escape.

“We have PPE for everybody. We have a cleaning regime that’s making the place wiped down every 8 hours, so we’re going a lot to make it safe

Dentist Buzz Nabers sells downtown Knoxville building and closes Gay Street office

Knoxville dentist Clarence “Buzz” Nabers has sold his Gay Street building and closed the branch of his practice located there.

The former office of Buzz Nabers Dental Studio on Gay Street in Knoxville, Tenn. on Tuesday, Nov. 1, 2020. Though the company signage is still up, Nabers sold the building and closed this location of his practice.

Josh Smith, founder and former owner of Master Service Companies, purchased the four-story building in late September for $2.8 million under the LLC Master OZ 300 Gay St.

Around that time, a Knox County Circuit Court judge denied Nabers’ motion to dismiss a proposed $50 million class-action lawsuit, allowing the case against him to move forward to what seems likely be a costly and time-consuming discovery process.

The lawsuit alleges Nabers endangered thousands of his patients by improperly sterilizing dental equipment, potentially exposing them to HIV, hepatitis B and hepatitis C. 

Nabers still operates out of his 2061 Thunderhead Road office in West Knoxville. 

A different dentist, Ethan Long, has leased the dental office space in the Gay Street building, Smith told Knox News.

Buzz Nabers controversy

Nabers was fined $11,000 in August 2019 and his license placed on probation after the Tennessee Board of Dentistry found he improperly sterilized dental equipment and forged certification documents. 

More: Knoxville dentist Buzz Nabers improperly sterilized tools, forged certificates, state says

The investigation found Nabers had dental assistants perform procedures outside their scope of practice, including filling cavities and placing permanent crowns.

The state mandated that Nabers inform patients of the risks associated with some of those improper sterilization techniques. Months later, some patients received unsigned letters from Nabers’ practice stating they could obtain HIV and hepatitis tests if they “would like to be tested.”

Three patients filed a $50 million proposed class-action lawsuit against Nabers.

Though a judge denied the defense’s motion to dismiss the case, the class has not yet been certified. It’s a procedural step in which the judge will decide whether the case can move forward and, if so, how to break up and define the groups of individuals involved.

OKC Dentist Working With On-Site Lab to Bring Patients Best in Cosmetic Dentistry

OKLAHOMA CITY, Dec. 2, 2020 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ — Providing the highest quality, longest lasting and most honest dentistry available has been a commitment of OKC dentist Dr. Chris Saxon’s since he began practicing dentistry. He is keeping this commitment by providing his patients with an on-site dental lab. This allows Dr. Saxon and his team at Saxon Dentistry to work hand in hand with the lab specialists to ensure an outstanding level of quality and service.

The Saxon Dentistry Difference

In most practices, the standard procedure is to outsource your dental lab needs. These typically include dentures, dental crowns, porcelain veneers, implant restorations and more. While convenient and often less expensive for dentists, quality and precision are often compromised. With Saxon Dentistry, this is kept on-site, ensuring greater quality control, accuracy of fit and most importantly, higher patient satisfaction.

When patients embark on full smile makeovers, dental implants, porcelain veneers and even a single crown, they are putting a lot of trust in their dentist. This trust is not taken lightly at Saxon Dentistry. The on-site lab utilizes top tier dental materials, advanced technology and employs skilled, meticulous technicians. Combining this with Dr. Saxon’s expertise allows for predictable, high quality outcomes.

When teaming up with the on-site dental lab specialist, Dr. Saxon can bring them directly into the room with the patient and together listen to the patient’s concerns. Without an on-site lab, dentists have to relay information to their labs via phone call or email. Details get lost in translation, and details matter greatly when customizing a smile for patients. Sometimes the most minor adjustment can have the biggest impact.

Smile Makeovers OKC

Dr. Saxon has a particular passion for making dentistry beautiful and natural. His keen eye for detail can make any dental restoration, from a single cracked tooth repair to dental veneers to full mouth dental implants, blend seamlessly into a smile. This has made him a highly sought after OKC cosmetic dentist and implant dentist.

“When dentistry is done to the highest level, no one should be able to detect that you’ve had dental work completed.”

He believes in meeting patients exactly where they are in life, understanding their goals and setting forth the appropriate treatment from there. There is no one size fits all dentistry in his office. Personalized care is not only necessary; it’s what every patient deserves that walks through a dentist’s door.

Get to Know Oklahoma City Native, Dr. Chris Saxon

Dr. Saxon is a native of Oklahoma City and a graduate of Putnam City North high school. He received his doctorate from the University of Oklahoma College Of Dentistry. He takes between 100-150 hours of continuing education every year, far exceeding the Oklahoma Board of Dentistry’s requirements.

Dr. Saxon is committed to giving back to the local community. One way he does this is by being an Oklahoma Mission of Mercy participant. Dr. Saxon is an avid golfer, cyclist and kite boarder, but his greatest joy comes from spending time with

Former Salem dentist, community leader Selma Pierce hit, killed by car

Selma Pierce, a well-known community leader, retired dentist and former legislative candidate, was struck and killed by a car Tuesday evening, according to the Salem Police Department.

Pierce, 66, was the wife of Bud Pierce, who ran an unsuccessful campaign for governor in 2016. Gov. Kate Brown defeated him. On Monday, KATU’s news partners reported that Bud Pierce would seek the governor’s  office in 2022.

Selma Pierce was active in her community, well-known in political circles and ran for a seat in the state House this year as a Republican. She was unable to unseat incumbent Paul Evans, a Democrat, however.

In a statement released Tuesday night, House Republican Leader Christine Drazan of Canby said Republicans in the House were devastated.

“We are profoundly saddened by this sudden loss of our friend and community leader. Selma dedicated her life to serving people. She touched the lives of thousands through volunteer dental work to at-risk populations, service on local education foundations, and her and her husband Bud’s generous support of countless community organizations,” Drazan said. “The Pierces are a pillar of the Salem community and this loss will be felt deeply across our state. Our prayers are with Bud and the entire Pierce family this evening.”

In a tweet, Gov. Brown said she and her husband, Dan, extended their condolences to the Pierce family.

“They are in our thoughts during this difficult time,” she said.

Senate President Peter Courtney also expressed sorrow upon learning of Selma’s death.

“Selma was a dear person who always put others before herself. She cared deeply for those in need. Selma loved to smile and always searched for ways to make life better for others,” he said in a statement. “She was very devoted to her family. I can’t imagine Salem without her. My heart goes out to her husband Bud and her children, Kristina and Michael.”

Salem police said Selma was walking on Doaks Ferry Road NW near Hidden Valley Drive when a driver of a Chevrolet SUV struck her around 5 p.m.

Police said it appeared she was in the road when she was hit. She died at the scene.

The driver stopped and cooperated with investigators.

Selma was born in San Francisco to Lawrence and Priscilla Moon.

Her grandparents immigrated to America and her legislative campaign website detailed the racism her family experienced. Upon graduating from Harvard Business School, no one would hire her first-generation-Chinese-American father and he had to settle for a job in a family member’s market. The state of California eventually hired him as an auditor for state hospitals.

Selma attended the University of California, Berkeley, where she earned a bachelor’s degree in biochemistry and then earned a Doctor of Dental Surgery at the University of California, Los Angeles, School of Dentistry.

She volunteered for many organizations, including Medical Teams International, Mission of Mercy, Salem Area Chamber of Commerce, OHSU Foundation Board of Trustees and many other organizations.

Selma was married to Bud,
