new dental column debuts
Intermountain Advanced Clinical Dentistry is introducing a new biweekly news column in this week’s paper offering advanced dentistry insight from the desk of Dr. Michael Herndon. The highly regarded Quincy dentist, who now shares office space with his daughter, Dr. Emily S. Herndon, is graduate university-trained in periodontal prosthesis, the most advanced form of reconstructive dentistry This makes him uniquely qualified to bring this subject to life in what he promises to be a no-nonsense, straight-to-the-point conversation with the community.
In reading his column, Dr. Herndon said, you will learn background information about crowns, implants, gum disease and simple and complex aesthetic dentistry so you can make informed decisions about your oral health.
Early on, the column will become interactive, offering a dedicated e-mail address for readers’ specific questions and answers.
The Herndon’s offices are on Main Street in downtown Quincy.

Patrick and Donata at Café Le Coq have their own version of “March Madness.” All month long they are offering a special on dinners: Buy one entrée, get another entrée free! What a great way to shake off the winter doldrums: a pleasant evening out enjoying some of the best food you’ll find in Plumas County. Dinners are served at the famed Quincy restaurant Tuesday – Saturday, 5 – 8 p.m. Although they say reservations are not needed, with a terrific deal like this I might suggest making them anyway.

Plumas District Hospital Volunteers are celebrating their 33rd anniversary this month. The anchor to their philanthropic endeavors is the Bargain Boutique at Lawrence and Church streets in Quincy. Proceeds from this thrift shop benefit the hospital, supplying equipment for patient care the hospital could not normally afford or perhaps justify in their operating budget. The Volunteers also award scholarships annually to medical students from the hospital district.
