BUSINESS PROFILE Salmon Brook Dental offers brighter smiles for the whole family SUBMITTED BY SALMON BROOK DENTAL BUSINESS NAME: Salmon Brook Dental ADDRESS: 35 Hartford Avenue Granby, CT 06035 EMAIL: WEBSITE: PHONE: 860-653-4551 Description of services: As a general dental practice we provide a wide array of services — including emergency, restorative, cosmetic, root canal, oral surgery, implant and periodontal services. Our emphasis is preventative and conservative treatment. We provide dental treatment for patients of all ages. History of business: I started in Granby in 1986 when I procured the practice of Dr. Sherman S. Clark, which was located at 10 Hartford Avenue in a second-floor office space, above where Caldwell Banker is presently located. After several relocations, we are now at 35 Hartford Avenue. What brought you into this line of work: As an undergrad in college, I developed an interest in a health career path and was attracted to the independence a career in dentistry could afford. Philosophy: Educating and helping patients to make informed decisions for their treatment. Biggest inspiration: Dentistry is a dynamic profession and is everchanging with new approaches and techniques. When necessary, we can restore teeth with much less invasiveness. Through preventative techniques, the need for restorative dentistry becomes less and less. Enjoyment of business: The patients that I meet over the years and the success at helping them obtain optimum oral health. Special message to share: When I first arrived in Granby, it was truly amazing at how receptive and welcoming people were. Granby is a truly a friendly town. Funny story: Once while treating a patient, I had to make an adjustment on a dental appliance. I needed to use a tool which was located in a separate room that had a lockable door. While making the adjustment, the door closed behind me and locked. It would not unlock. Calling out to my staff, I heard someone ask, “Did you hear a voice?” Finally, everyone realized my plight and we busily engaged the entire doorknob from both sides of the door. With screwdrivers, we were able to disassemble the entire doorknob, but the lock mechanism did not budge. We felt desperation and my staff called a locksmith and even the Granby Police for advice. Finally, a member of my staff used a butter knife and the lock popped open. The elapsed time was approximately 20 minutes. The patient had no idea, at the time, why I was absent and was just told I was indisposed. She was accepting and the procedure was finished in due time. About an hour later, when I went to ABC Pizza for lunch, I saw Ralph Johnson and he started with a hearty guffaw. He told me the whole town had already heard the story. Making work day fun: My staff provides the fun. Our staff consists of varied personalities who are highly skilled and incredibly devoted to helping patients feel comfortable. There is always banter and laughter. Myself and family: My wife, Laurie, and I recently celebrated our 40th wedding anniversary. Laurie has multiple roles in the operation of the practice, as she is a dental hygienist and an office manager. We have three adult sons. Additional information: Granby has been good to us, and we are so fortunate to have made long-lasting friendships and connections to the community. A brighter smile for your whole family Kenneth E.

SALUTING OUR FIRST RESPONDERS Saluting Billy Langdon Lost Acres Fire Department BY FRANCIS LIBBY Role with Fire Department Waiting List Member Began Serving as a First Responder •In Granby — 2014 • Overall — 2014 Granby Connection I have lived in Granby my entire life. Full-Time Student Studying business, education and media studies at Saint Michael’s College What motivated you to serve as a first responder? I really enjoy serving the community and getting to know it better. What is the most rewarding aspect of your work as a first responder? For me, the most rewarding part of being on the Lost Acres Fire Department is serving my community. Whether this is through an emergency call or by teaching fire prevention in the schools, I feel as though I am making a difference. Would you like to share a brief story related to your work as a first responder? For the past couple of years, I have gone into the preschools and elementary schools to teach fire prevention. I enjoy those visits, but I don’t think learning about fire safety should end there. Over October break, I went into seventh-grade and 11th-grade classes and taught the science behind fires. Being able to educate the older students about the real process of a fire and answer their questions was something I really enjoyed.
