8 POLITICS JULY 2-8, 2020 | VALLEY BREEZE & OBSERVER | SMITHFIELD SCITUATE FOSTER GLOCESTER EDITION DuPont goes for second try for District 22 senate seat SMITHFIELD – Town native Melanie DuPont, a Democrat, has declared her second run for Senate District 22, challenging incumbent Democrat Steve Archambault as she seeks to represent parts of Smithfield, Johnston and North Providence. "As your state senator, I will take bold, decisive action to secure for us green energy jobs, living wages, equal pay, and affordable housing. I will work to decouple health insurance from employment and expand mental healthcare for survivors of domestic violence," she said in a release. DuPont pointed to her experience growing up with a mother working a tipped, minimum wage job, as well as a father who was unable to work, as a motivating factor for her decision to run. "I don't trust our endorsed repre- sentative to meaningfully improve our lives," she said of Archambault. She said the COVID-19 crisis revealed the effects of political inaction, and said it is time to switch to a candi- date who offers a "different and coura- geous approach to public service." "I am your candidate and I ask you to vote for me in the primary on Sept. 8," DuPont said. Celebrate U.S. Soccer with SYSA!

MINI IMPLANTS As their name implies, "mini" dental im- plants are typically half the size of a traditional implant. They are an option for patients who might not have enough bone to accept a larger implant and do not want to undergo bone augmentation procedures. Mini implants are also a good option for patients who want to replace small teeth, front teeth, premolars, and teeth located in a narrow area. Mini implants can also be used by patients with dentures and partial dentures, who desire more stability for their dental prostheses. In these cases, a small, ball-shaped portion of the implant sticks out of the gums and snaps securely into a retaining socket on the inside of a denture. In addition to their cosmetic appeal, im- plants allow people to enjoy a healthy and var- ied diet without the restrictions some denture wearers face. They also often bring a renewed sense of self-confidence. People with implants often say they feel better, look better, and live better. If you think implants may be for you, call us for a consultation. A visit to DENTAL ARTS GROUP, 1136 Hartford Ave., Johnston, may be just what you need to enhance your quality of life. You can reach us at 401-521-3661. Most insurance plans accepted. P.S. At least four mini implants are typically required to secure a lower denture, and at least six to secure an upper denture.
