I Am No Longer Embarrassed over My Smile

meWhen I was younger, my mom was busy raising me and my three younger brothers on her own. She was working two jobs at any given time, and sometimes even three. She was so busy trying to keep us in a home that she did miss out on a few things like teaching us about proper oral hygiene. I do not hold that against her at all, but I knew that I was going to need to see a cosmetic dentist in Greenwood Village if I wanted to have a nice smile.
I was really embarrassed over my smile because my teeth were crooked and stained.

Hearing the term caffeine, we usually immediately thought of the black beverage called coffee. Yes, as the name implies, the main form of coffee contains caffeine compounds.

Making The Connections: Our City, Our Society, Our Health



Health is about more than having access to doctors, drugs and hospitals.

Our health is shaped by a complex set of interconnected and dynamic social factors: the circumstances in which people live, grow, work, and age.

Research tells us that by addressing these social conditions, we can improve people’s health and well-being and reduce health inequities.

The Wellesley Institute is a Toronto research and policy thinktank on advancing population health. In October 2012, we launched popular education exhibit Making the Connections: Our City, Our Society, Our Health. The exhibit aims to engage communities across the Greater Toronto Area by identifying what the social determinants of health are, their interconnections, how they impact our health, and what we can do to address them.

Temporary Medical Staffing Agency: Start-Up Costs

How much money do you need?

In my experience I have seen medical staffing agencies start-up capital range from $5,000 to $300,000. Having more money does not guarantee success and having less money does not mean failure.

How much money you will need will depend on many factors. Some of which will depend on if you are planning to rent an office, hire employees or work the business initially yourself.

Take a look at the bottom list, it will give you a better idea as to the cost opening up a medical staffing agency. The list assumes you are opening up an actual office. I have consulted for many medical staffing agencies and I have seen some of the most successful medical staffing agencies start from a room in there garage a cell phone and conduct meetings at Starbucks.

Equipment: $2,000-$5000

Software: $500-$2000

Insurance: $100-$4000… Read More
