“Doctor, your exam patient is ready in operatory #1”! But are you ready when your patient opens his mouth to reveal teeth blackened, broken, and rotted with decay?  At first glance, you might think the decay is from poor oral hygiene, candy or your patient’s soda consumption. But could it be from methamphetamine, a drug that causes severe tooth decay? Before you pick up your anesthetic syringe or dental drill, pick up and read “A State of Decay”: Your Dental Guide to Understanding and Treating Meth Mouth. With step-by-step advice and her outspoken style, Dr. Brown, walks you through how to Recognize, Communicate and Treat patients who have “meth mouth”. In these pages you’ll learn:

•       What methamphetamine is and why it causes rapid tooth decay

•       How to recognize patients in your practice who are using methamphetamine

•       Effective strategies to treat your patients with “meth mouth”


Excerpt

Addiction is a disease that is not discriminatory based upon socioeconomics, gender, race, culture, or geography.

Wealthy people can become addicted just like people who are poor. People who live in urban areas become addicted the same way people in rural areas get addicted. People who are educated get addicted just like people who are uneducated. At the jail, I have

treated truck drivers, teachers, soccer moms, CEOs, software engineers, chefs, nurses, lawyers, college students, athletes—the list goes on—who have used methamphetamine! They sit in the dental chair, seeking help for the damage that meth has done to their teeth, but they also sit in their jail cells due to the impact that methamphetamine has had on their lives and the lives of others. 


About the Author

Dr. Ronni Brown is a dentist, researcher, speaker and author who bridges the gap between dentistry, public health and substance abuse. Her work treating patients with “meth mouth” at a medium-security jail, research on the oral effects of methamphetamine, and courses at the world’s top dental conferences positions her as a leading expert on “meth mouth”. When not treating, speaking, or writing, Ronni can be found hiking, baking and visiting zoos across the world.

Book Tour & Book Review: Addictive Alessandro #booktour #romance #giveaway #review #rabtbooktours @AnneMarieCitro @RABTBookTours



Savage's Buck & Doe #3
Adult Romance
Date Published: August 1st, 2019

 photo add-to-goodreads-button_zpsc7b3c634.png

Alessandro Savage walked through the same maze of streets in the French Quarter that he had walked for the last few months. He carried two things: his guitar case and a bottle of Jack. Months of self-induced punishment, wandering lost, looking for redemption. At least, that was the lie he told himself. It should have been him who died that fateful night the music had died in the Las Vegas massacre. He could never have absolution, because he had committed a crime unforgivable to those he loved.
Family was everything to the Savage brothers. Alessandro had broken that sacred bond when he had killed his oldest brother. He hadn’t been the one to pull the trigger, but he was as guilty as the man who had. This was why he needed to get drunk every day to numb the pain. He couldn’t deal with not being able to go back to the past and make things right.
Ava Lombardi hated bachelorette parties and her cousin’s was going to be extremely painful. She was spending four days at Savage’s Buck & Doe Resort. Ava was a beautiful loner who had the ability to help the Savage family find Alessandro but didn’t want to get involved.
Getting Alessandro home was only half of the battle the other would be helping him to become clean and sober and stay that way. Ava had closed herself off years ago but not all ghosts were left better in the past.
Not all rehabilitation opposed to addiction were about abstinence. Could two souls that lost redemption find peace in each other’s arms? Would Ava be the one addiction Alessandro couldn’t beat?




Review

This was such a sweet read. I enjoyed it immensley.

 There is new love and other older relationships within the story.. It's a great balance of relationships not just between the main characters. 

The character development was excellent. I felt I knew these people my whole life. The story development was very well thought out I was drawn I from the beginning. It was a quick easy read.. I can not recommend this book enough. It is also a perfect read for these unknown times. It is a feel good story that hits all the right notes. Enjoy!

Historical Memoir Feature: Living Among the Dead by Adena Bernstein Astrowsky #promo #memoir #nonfiction #giveaway #rabtbooktours @RABTBookTours @adena_astrowsky



Biography/Memoir/History/Nonfiction/Jewish Studies/WWII
Date Published: March 3, 2020
Publisher: Amsterdam Publishers

 photo add-to-goodreads-button_zpsc7b3c634.png

This is the story of one remarkable woman's unimaginably horrific journey through the rise of the Nazi regime, the war, and the aftermath. Her story is narrated by her granddaughter and the book is interwoven with beautiful passages of poetry and personal reflection by the survivor, Mania, as she used writing as a medium to deal with the effects of the war. Most Jews did not die in concentration camps. Instead, they were murdered in their lifelong communities, slaughtered by mass killing units, and then buried in pits. Mania lived in labor camps and witnessed these inconceivable sightings while doing everything within her power to subsist. Although she was the sole survivor of her family, Mania went on to rebuild a new life in a new country, with a new language and new customs, always carrying with her the losses of her family and memories of the brutality she witnessed and lived through. Nearly eighty years post liberation of the Holocaust, we are still witnessing acts of cruelty born out of hatred and discrimination. Living among the Dead reminds us of the beautiful communities that existed before WWII, the lives lost and those that lived on, and the importance to never forget these stories so that history does not repeat itself.

Christian Feature: The Christian Christmas Condition by Scott Rankin #promo #giveaway #christian #nonfiction #rabtbooktours @RABTBookTours



Christian - Holiday - self spirit improvement
Date Published: December 2019

 photo add-to-goodreads-button_zpsc7b3c634.png


What do you want for Christmas? We all hear this question everywhere, but author Scott Rankin invites us all to slow down for a moment and ask a different question... What does God want for Christmas? Our Lord desires that we become more Christ-like every day (1 Corinthians 11:1). To accomplish this goal, He tells us to renew our minds (Romans 12:2). But how do the Christmas holidays help accomplish this goal if so much busyness and stress make it hard to focus all our attention on Christ and completely rest in His peace? In an easy-to-read format, "The Christian Christmas Condition" takes a new and refreshing look by asking the question, “How does our Lord feel about Christmas today?” encouraging Christians of all ages to examine Christmas-time traditions from God's perspective. Filled with Bible references, this study will boost your faith, increase your knowledge, and strengthen you to fully honor Jesus in the midst of Christmas, traditions, and busy holiday activities, and reveal the secret of what God says in the Bible about Christmas today! Whether your family participates in Advent, Hanukkah, midnight mass, uses a Christmas tree, or watches for Santa Claus on Christmas Eve, this powerful book encourages all Christians to become more Christ-like in our thinking and our actions each, and every day of the year... not just in the winter holidays!
