Cedar Mill Business News—October 2012

CMBA speaker

For many, the dividing line between Beaverton and Cedar Mill can be difficult to visualize. If you would like to learn more about where these lines are and how they may change in the future , October’s Cedar Mill Business Association meeting is for you!

Don Mazziotti, the Community & Economic Development Director for the City of Beaverton, will be discussing this, as well as future changes in the area, and how those changes may affect Cedar Mill. Mazziotti has been with the City of Beaverton for three years and has had more than 35 years of economic and community development, public administration, planning, real estate, and finance expertise.

The Cedar Mill Business Association meets on the second Tuesday of each month, 11:45-1 pm at the Cedar Mill Bible Church chapel, 12208 NW Cornell Rd. Non-members are welcome to attend a couple of meetings for free. Visit for more information. There’s free pizza, coffee and tea, bring your own beverage if you choose.

Learn about Diet/Lifestyle at Prince of Peace

With holiday meals and cold weather fast approaching, staying healthy and making proper lifestyle choices can be a struggle. Luckily, Dr. Miles Hassell, MD, will be addressing this very issue as he discusses compelling evidence that supports using the Mediterranean diet to reduce your risk of heart disease, stroke, cancer, dementia, and type 2 diabetes. He will cover a variety of lifestyle issues as well, from the importance of daily exercise and portion control to preventing obesity in young children.

Currently in private practice at Providence St. Vincent Medical Center, Dr. Hassell is a clinical instructor in the training of internal medicine residents. Dr. Hassell is co-author of “Good Food, Great Medicine,” a cookbook that uses the whole-food Mediterranean diet as a basis to guide you in eating well for your health.

Dr. Hassell will be speaking at 6:30 pm on Tuesday, October 16 at the Prince of Peace Christian Living Center Gymnasium, 14175 NW Cornell Road. He will have copies of his book for sale.

Summit Dental

summitIn an effort to provide the best technology possible for their clients, Summit Dental has recently purchased a Ceramic Reconstruction System (CEREC). This dental restoration product allows the doctor to restore teeth in a single sitting with the patient rather than multiple appointments required with standard technology. Dr. Hagedorn designs the tooth himself using 3D photography and sends the information to an adjacent milling unit where the tooth is then cut from a solid block of ceramic material.

Patients requiring certain types of crowns, veneers, inlays, or onlays can be in and out of the office with the treatment completed after only one appointment. This is convenient for those who have difficulty scheduling multiple appointments or who are anxious about visiting the dentist. Visit for before-and-after photos and more information about this technology.

gratAnd on Saturday, November 3, the office will participate with Operation Gratitude to host our first Halloween Candy Buy Back. We will be “buying back” unopened Halloween candy from children in the neighborhood for $1 per pound (up to 5 lbs). We will then be shipping the candy to troops overseas. Must be accompanied by an adult.

Summit Dental is located just north of the Bales Thriftway center in the same parking lot. For more information, visit or call 503-644-7202.

Virtue of the Month: Mindfulness

mind“Can you cleanse your inner vision until you see nothing but the light?... Can you step back from your own mind and thus understand all things?” - Tao Te Cheng

Mindfulness is living reflectively, with conscious awareness of our actions, words and thoughts. Awake to the world around us, we fully experience our senses. We are attentive to other's needs. We refuse to rush... We seek joy instead of mere desire. We cultivate our inner vision, aware of life's lessons as they unfold. - Virtues Reflection Cards

The Practice of Mindfulness: I seek always to be awake and aware. I am considerate of the needs of others. I keep a pace of grace. I do not allow emotions and impulses to rule me. I cultivate my spiritual awareness with daily reflection. I am a lifelong learner.

Affirmation: I am thankful for the gift of Mindfulness. It keeps me present.
