Low Cost and Free Health Services

Doctor Jeffrey Martin is giving his elderly and indigent patients a reason to smile, with low cost affordable dentures. Doctor Martin says a full set of new dentures can cost up to 1,600 dollars. He is able to provide them at a quarter of the typical cost, about 300 dollars. Martin says 95 percent of his patients are low income and were not able to afford dentures until now. There is also an onsite lab where they make the dentures and offer same day service as opposed to the four or five day wait. If you qualify for the low cost denture service plan call (318) 742-6043.

Could hypnosis help you to lose weight and stop smoking forever? Some people seem to think so. They are attending the Alex Goen Seminars this week. Hypnotist Larry Magenheim says the method only works if people have a made up mind to shed the unwanted pounds and want to quit smoking. And for Carol Harris who has tried just about every diet imaginable, she says hypnosis is worth trying. The next seminar will take place Saturday February 22 at 11 am at the courtyard Marriott the address is 6001 Financial Plaza.
