February is Children’s Dental Health Month, so we’re joined by local dentist Dr. Ron Reinmiller, who has had his own practice in Landisville for twenty-four years. It’s easy to see that he has a passion for improving people’s lives through dentistry.

For Ron, dentistry isn’t just cavities and fillings. It’s a key component of complete health, with the ability to help people have greater self-confidence, sleep better, and—particularly through the treatment of sleep apnea—address diseases including depression, coronary artery disease, and diabetes.

In addition to educating us on dental technology and sleep apnea treatments, Dr. Reinmiller tells the story of Quin Baker, a 20-year-old Lancaster resident who lost her teeth in a car accident when she was 15. He is donating his services to give her dental implants, since she has outgrown her temporary denture and the insurance claim is no longer covering her medical expenses. Her friend Matt Deterior, a graphic designer, is hosting a fundraising event/auction at The Candy Factory later this month to cover the rest of her expenses.
