MOLINE, IL – A person’s smile is a special point of pride – so when dental work becomes necessary, no one likes to wait for the finished results. Now, thanks to cutting-edge advances in dental technology, realistic tooth restoration can be achieved in one day, according to the experts at Goebel Family Dentistry.

The dentists at the helm of Goebel Family Dentistry are the father-and-son team of Gary Goebel, D.D.S., and Tom Goebel, D.D.S. Their new practice, which opened on April 1, 2013, is located at 1601 River Drive, Suite 300, in downtown Moline.

“Using the E4D Dentist™ system, we can now offer same-day crowns, inlays, onlays, and veneers to qualifying patients,” said Dr. Gary Goebel. “We are excited to bring this technology to our patients.”

According to Dr. Gary Goebel, the E4D system replaces conventional methods, which include the use of an unpleasant impression material and the uncomfortable waiting period as it solidifies. “Images from a clean, fast digital scan are obtained in just a few minutes,” he said.

The scanned information is then transferred to the design center, where a 3D model of the tooth needing restoration is created through the system’s state-of-the-art DentaLogic™ software. “We can customize the restoration to fit the patient’s specific characteristics,” said Dr. Tom Goebel, “after which, it is created in a milling unit, right in our office.”

The final result is a natural-looking restoration that fits with the surrounding teeth, making the crown, inlay, onlay, or veneer virtually undetectable. “The elimination of impressions, temporaries, second appointments, and needless waiting elevates the entire dental experience for the patient,” said Dr. Gary Goebel.

Washington, D.C. – The Susan B. Anthony List (SBA List) today announced the creation of a National Pro-Life Women’s Caucus to recruit and organize pro-life women in state legislatures and statewide offices nationwide. The initial Leadership Team includes: Gov. Jan Brewer (AZ), Gov. Mary Fallin (OK), Lt. Gov. Sue Ellspermann (IN), Lt. Gov. Rebecca Kleefisch (WI), Lt. Gov. Kay Ivey (AL), Lt. Gov. Kim Reynolds (IA), and Atty. Gen. Pam Bondi (FL), as well as more than twenty state legislators from across the country.

Directed by SBA List Vice President for Government Affairs and former Congresswoman Marilyn Musgrave, the National Pro-life Women’s Caucus will foster community between pro-life women lawmakers across the country, and connect them with the resources they need to pass pro-life laws. The Caucus will also actively encourage and recruit pro-life women to run for higher office.

Marilyn Musgrave served three terms representing Colorado’s 4th District in the U.S. House of Representatives prior to joining the Susan B. Anthony List in 2009. She served in the Colorado House and Senate before running for the United States House in 2002.

“Women are the best messengers when it comes to defending the lives of the unborn and the integrity of motherhood,” said Governor Jan Brewer (R-AZ). “I am proud to be a part of this national effort to highlight the leadership of lawmakers who are leading the charge to protect innocent unborn human life and women from the violence of abortion.”

This effort will complement the existing Congressional Pro-life Women’s Caucus. Congressional pro-life women leaders endorsed the effort, saying:

“We need strong, articulate women in Washington and in state legislatures who will boldly support policies that respect and promote life,” said Senator Deb Fischer (R-NE).  “I’m excited to support the National Pro-life Women’s Caucus as it builds up the next generation of pro-life women leaders.”

“I am passionate about the need for women’s leadership in politics, especially here in Washington,” said Congresswoman Cathy McMorris Rodgers (R-WA). “The Pro-Life Women’s Caucus will advance strong pro-life women in state legislatures and give them the tools and resources needed to run for higher office. I hope to see many of its members joining me here in Congress soon.”

The Susan B. Anthony List, and its affiliated Political Action Committees, the SBA List Candidate Fund and Women Speak Out PAC, are dedicated to pursuing policies and electing candidates who will reduce and ultimately end abortion. To that end, the SBA List emphasizes the education, promotion, mobilization, and election of pro-life women.  The SBA List is a network of more than 365,000 pro-life Americans nationwide.
