MEREDITH — In an effort to help voters learn more about both candidates for the Executive Council District One seat and enable them to make an informed decision at the voting booth, the Lakes Region Democrats, the Belknap County Republicans, and the Belknap County Democrats have announced that they are sponsoring an Executive Council District One Candidate Forum. The forum, scheduled for Tuesday, February 11, 6 - 7:30 p.m. will be held at the Meredith Community Center, located at 1 Circle Drive in Meredith. The event will be moderated by the League of Women Voters of New Hampshire. Following introductory remarks by both candidates, the public will be invited to engage in a Q & A with the candidates. In the event of weather issues requiring postponement of the forum, the snow date is Tuesday, February 18.
With the passing of Executive Councilor Ray Burton, the Secretary of State scheduled a primary and a special election to fill the vacant seat. The March 11 special election features the Democratic candidate, Mike Cryans, versus. the Republican candidate, Joe Kenney, who defeated Christopher Boothby and Mark Aldrich in a Republican Primary on January 21. Since March 11 is also the date of most town elections in district #1, it is hoped that voter turnout may be somewhat higher than normal for a special election.

TILTON — A new Aspen Dental office opened in Tilton on Thursday, January 30. Located at 17 Lowes Drive, the conveniently located practice will provide dental services that range from dentures and preventive care to general dentistry and restoration.
Dr. Young Chan Park, lead dentist at the Tilton office, received his Doctor of Dental Medicine (DMD) degree at Boston University School of Dental Medicine in 2003. Dr. Park looks forward to meeting the Tilton community and providing much needed access to high-quality dental care and education.
The Tilton practice, located in Belknap County, marks the 11th Aspen Dental-branded location in New Hampshire, a state where 4 out of 10 of the counties (including Belknap County) have dental health professional shortage areas as designated by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services.
According to a study conducted in 2013 by Syracuse University's Whitman School of Management, each new Aspen Dental-branded office supports local community growth by contributing more than $1.3 million in positive economic impact through job creation and capital investment. The local community benefits through investment in office construction, furniture and fixtures; jobs created and wages and benefits paid; taxes; and investment in marketing and advertising.
In addition to offering patients the choice of seven styles of Aspen Dental's exclusive ComfiDents® brand full and partial dentures, Aspen Dental will provide comprehensive exams, hygiene services, treatment of periodontal (gum) disease, extractions, fillings, oral surgery, whitening, and crown and bridge work. The office features digital radiography and offers advanced screening for oral cancer.
