Taking Care of Tooth Decay: Fillings in Smyrna, GA

If you have had a cavity filled before, you're not alone. Tooth decay affects more than 90% of adults over the age of 40 - a stunning statistic that, in many cases, is entirely preventable. At Merchants Walk Dental, we use composite resin fillings to keep our patient's teeth healthy and functional. Unlike amalgam fillings, composite fillings are more discreet, match the color of your teeth, and are free of mercury.

While fillings can have a few uses, our doctors typically use fillings to “fill” a part of your tooth that is decaying. This hole of decay is called a cavity. Sometimes, fillings are also used to fix broken, cracked, or worn-down teeth from grinding and nail-biting. Fillings are a great way to restore decaying teeth to their normal shape and function while preventing sensitivity and inhibiting further decay.

During your dental exam at our office in East Cobb, your dental hygienist will check for signs of cavities and tooth decay to ensure your oral hygiene remains in peak condition.

Having served the East Cobb and Smyrna for years, we know your dental needs are unique and different from your neighbor.

Channel 2′s Cobb County Bureau Chief Michele Newell was in Smyrna Wednesday, where a lawsuit alleges that sex trafficking took place at a Red Roof Inn off Windy Hill Road in Smyrna as well as three other metro Atlanta hotels.

Eleven victims initially came forward, but now there are a total of 15 survivors. Some of the victims were as young as 16 years old.

TRENDING STORIES:

According to the lawsuit, filed on behalf of nearly 20 women by attorney Patrick McDonough, a front desk employee at the Red Roof Inn said there was never a minute that prostitution wasn’t going on at the motel from 2008 to 2016.

“Their own employees would testify that there would be 10, 15 different girls that were being trafficked everyday,” McDonough said. “Multiple of the clients were at the Smyrna Red Roof hotel, and it’s all the same pattern. Horrific things happened. We have 16 year old children that were literally choked in front of hotel employees”

“We think it’s abundantly clear on all of the public record that the hotel not only should have known about it and (not) turned a blind eye, but had actual knowledge that sex trafficking was going on at this hotel,” McDonough said.

Lawyers initially filed four individual lawsuits in 2019, but since that time, another 11 survivors have come forward.

McDonough said the survivors came forward to try to “change the behavior at the hotels so this doesn’t happen to any other young girls in the future.”

Hotel lawyers have now filed a motion for summary judgement, arguing that the lawsuits shouldn’t be allowed to go forward.

Newell stopped by the Red Roof Inn on Wednesday and was told the manager was not around.

A representative for the Red Roof Inn sent a statement, saying,

“The company will fight these allegations vigorously. We condemn sex trafficking in all forms.”

Metro Atlanta Kroger cleans up rat infestation after state finds evidence of rodents

ATLANTA, Ga. (Atlanta News First) - Less than a day after an Atlanta News First investigation uncovered a rat infestation inside the Kroger on South Atlanta Road in Smyrna, workers cleaned the loading dock area and patched up drain holes to keep out the rodents.

Customers were appalled.

“I don’t believe it; I don’t believe it. No hell no, I don’t believe it,” a Kroger shopper said.

“It’s unfortunate, but it’s not surprising. This particular Kroger tends to be very lax,” Christine Craig, another Kroger shopper, said.

On Monday, the Georgia Department of Agriculture shared photographs taken at the store, which showed rodent droppings and urine spots in the storage area. The inspector also identified where rats had been gnawing on products, creating burrows.

“It does not surprise me that they have issues with rats because it always seems like it’s kind of a mess in there,” Craig said.

Then Tuesday afternoon, a state inspector took video showing the contaminated products from the store being dumped out of a Kroger trailer and into the landfill as ordered by the Department of Agriculture.

“Well, I’m glad somebody spoke up but I’ve never noticed anything in the store,” another Kroger shopper said.

A Kroger spokesperson said they are working with the state to eliminate the problem. That said, Atlanta News First did not see an inspection report posted within 15 feet of the entrance to the store as required by law. Atlanta News First asked corporate about it and has not received a response.

“I come in here for very specific things and I make sure I clean them off really well. But definitely not someplace I come unless I absolutely have to,” Craig said.

The State Department of Agriculture told Atlanta News First that every grocery store should have an inspection posted for people to see near the front door. If you don’t see it or notice a problem at the store, you can contact the Georgia Department of Agriculture.

ATLANTA, Ga. (Atlanta News First) - The Georgia Department of Agriculture made a disturbing discovery inside a Kroger grocery store in Smyrna recently.

“It’s enough to turn your stomach, it’s just disgusting,” Amber Dent, a former Kroger employee, said.

Dent worked as an overnight associate at the Kroger on South Atlanta Road and complained about a rat problem.

“It was disgusting, revolting. The smell alone is nauseating,” Dent said. “Initially, I had heard stories about the rats. It was a thing buzzing around the store but then I started seeing them. I started seeing them come in at night.”

And after three months of working at the store, she left her job and complained about the conditions publicly. Atlanta News First instructed her to inform the Georgia Department of Agriculture. And on Friday, a state inspector paid a visit to the store.

“Our inspector found pretty significant evidence of rodent activity at the establishment,” Dent said.

The inspector found rodent activity in the storage area, as well as in a trailer parked in the loading dock, and immediately issued a stop-sale order.

“We’re talking about rodent droppings, evidence of burrowing done by the rodents, as well as a strong smell of urine in the trailer,” Matthew Agvent, a Georgia Department of Agriculture spokesperson, said.

So, Atlanta News First tried to question management at the store about the rat problem and they instructed us to contact the corporate office.

Kroger’s corporate office sent the following statement:

“Food safety is Kroger’s No. 1 priority. We are actively working with the Georgia Department of Agriculture regarding this isolated incident and following their guidance and direction. We are also bolstering operational and training protocol at the store.”

“It’s just sad to say that it took me coming in and experiencing it for a short period of time and speaking up for something to be done,’ Dent said.

The Georgia Department of Agriculture said they will be back out at the store this week to destroy all the contaminated food. Plus, they will reinspect the store next week to make sure that the rat problem has been eliminated.

ATLANTA, Ga. (Atlanta News First) - The storms that kept many people up around metro Atlanta Monday night left some damage around town.

The heavy rain washed out a road in Smyrna. A portion of Spring Hill Parkway is now closed in the area that runs parallel to I-285. Crews tell us this is not going to be an easy fix and they expect the road to stay closed through the day as they make repairs. They’ve set up signs far ahead of the closure to make sure drivers are aware of the detour.

In the Virginia Highland neighborhood in the east part of Atlanta, a fallen tree has Springdale Road closed off where it meets Ponce de Leon Avenue.

Another tree was blown over by the strong wind and rain in the Collier Heights subdivision in the Collier Hills neighborhood, which is just off Northside Drive. The tree seems to have fallen from a yard into the roadway.

Tree branches fell on top of a vehicle on Grant Street in southeast Atlanta.

A tree came down on Greystone Road in northwest Atlanta.

There have been reports of flood overnight in Calhoun, Georgia.

One Calhoun family sent us photos of flooding inside their home around 3 a.m. Tuesday morning on the 300 block of Jolly Road.

A viewer sent us photos of a tree that came down on three cars on Bramblewood Drive off Buford Highway in northeast Atlanta.

“It crushed 3 cars and cut off the dead-end road, keeping us stuck in our houses,” the viewer said.

Please be aware that more flash flooding is likely Tuesday afternoon and evening as widespread slow-moving storms pop up again.

Atlanta News First has photojournalists throughout the city keeping track of storm-related damage and road closures. Stay with us for the latest updates.
