That charge was lodged after a 68-year-old patient accused the dentist of groping her during an office visit on Aug. 31. The victim was not anesthetized, according to Gould.

Begg lives in Newport but owns and operates a dental practice at 246 Front St. in Lincoln, according to

County prepares for eminent domain in Utica hospital project

Amy Neff Roth

Oneida County is getting ready to start eminent domain proceedings against property owners whose parcels sit in the footprint of a planned parking garage in Utica, Oneida County Executive Anthony Picente Jr. said.

The garage, to be located at Oriskany, Lafayette and Cornelia streets, will provide parking for the general public and for the Mohawk Valley Health System hospital being built across Lafayette Street from the garage.

“Obviously, our process is moving forward,” Picente said. “We have four parcels that are in question. We have had contact with one of them. The other three have either not contacted or not answered, or have answered in the negative. We’re in the process of preparing that and would look at probably heading into court in the next couple weeks as soon as we get all of our pieces in to place.”

The move to eminent domain was

“Our bodies serves as a host, and the host can be healthy enough to fight disease.”

Let’s take a cellular look at how what you eat helps to fight disease.

The Prostate Cancer Foundation says certain nutrients help to prevent cell damage that can lead to cancer.

A Dentist Sees More Cracked Teeth. What’s Going On?

So what can we do?

You’d be surprised how many people are unaware that they’re clenching and grinding. Even patients who come into the office complaining of pain and sensitivity are often incredulous when I point it out. “Oh, no. I don’t grind my teeth,” is a refrain I hear over and over again, despite the fact that I’m often watching them do it.

Awareness is key. Are your teeth currently touching? Even as you read this article? If so, that’s a sure sign that you’re doing some damage — your teeth shouldn’t actually touch throughout the day at all unless you’re actively eating and chewing your food. Instead, your jaw should be relaxed, with a bit of space between the teeth when the lips are closed. Be mindful, and try to stop yourself from grinding when you catch yourself doing it.

If you have a night guard or retainer,

American company Echelon Fitness is getting attention after claiming it developed a ‘Prime Bike’ in “collaboration with Amazon”.

The indoor exercise bike was posted on Amazon’s website for $500, undercutting the premium-range indoor exercise bikes offered by Peloton Interactive Inc.

The news pushed Peloton shares down by about 6.7% on Tuesday, but they recovered to be down just 2% by end of trading.

While Echelon Fitness promoted the product on Amazon and labelled it the ‘Prime Bike’, the e-commerce giant denied any claims of collaboration, and asked the fitness company to remove the product from its website.

Bloomberg reported the spat, and included a statement from an Amazon spokesperson, who explained the bike “is not an Amazon product or related to Amazon Prime”.

“We are working with Echelon to clarify this in its communications, stop the sale of the product, and change the product
