Benco associates experience Christmas kindness in Dunmore, Pennsylvania

WNEP-16 Reporter Elizabeth Worthington and Videographer Mike Cholko paid a surprise visit to Regulatory Compliance Specialist Ashley  Yando  DeFlice and Tax Manager Amy Yando at the Benco Dental home office. Their purpose: to learn more about an outpouring of holiday kindness the sisters experienced in their community. On Thursday, December 12, the news station reported the story.

John Yando, the dad of two Benco associates, Regulatory Compliance Specialist Ashley Yando DeFlice and Tax Manager Amy Yando, has long taken pride in decorating for the holidays at his home in Dunmore, Pennsylvania. Two years ago, John experienced a serious stroke. Though he has made great strides with determination and the support of loving wife Julie and family, John, who turned 73 on Tuesday, no longer is able to continue the tradition of stringing countless yards of colorful garland, wreaths and lights to brighten his neighborhood.   

John Yando, center, the dad of two Benco associates, Regulatory Compliance Specialist Ashley Yando DeFlice (shown) and Tax Manager Amy Yando, has long taken pride in decorating for the holidays at his home in Dunmore, Pennsylvania. Two years ago, John experienced a serious stroke and this season his community lent their support.

When John mentioned to Ashley that he felt disheartened and requested help, his youngest daughter recalled the outpouring of support their family received during her father’s recovery. “People were always asking what they could do to help, so I thought this might be a time to ask,” said Ashley. 

Last week, when Ashley shared a post to the Facebook group “You Know You’re from Dunmore” requesting assistance to decorate her parents’ home, she wasn’t sure what to expect. 

Last week, when Ashley Yando DeFlice shared a post (shown above) to the Facebook group “You Know You’re from Dunmore” requesting assistance to decorate her parents’ home, she wasn’t sure what to expect. 

 “I thought I would get a few people, and in the first hours, I received supportive comments,” she referred to the social media group with 6,062 followers. “Then, we got so much help, we were overwhelmed by the kindness.”  

Ashley said it was not long before she received a call from the Dunmore Police Department who offered assistance from Cadet program of the police and fire departments.  

On Saturday morning, Amy arranged for their mom to be away from home for a few hours and the volunteers began arriving.  Before long nearly 20 members of the community came out, including neighbors, an elementary schoolmate, the Cadets, among others.  

On Saturday, December 7, nearly 20 members of the community came out to help the Yando family decorate in Dunmore, including neighbors, an elementary schoolmate, the Dunmore Borough Police and Fire Department and Cadets, among others.  
John Yando watches from inside his Dunmore home as friends from the community continue his holiday decorating tradition.

“Our mom had been feeling overwhelmed and having trouble getting into the spirit of the season,” said Amy. 

When she arrived home, their mom, Julie was awestruck and delighted.

On Saturday morning, Amy Yando arranged for her mom Julie to be away from home for a few hours and the volunteers began arriving to decorate. Here she arrives on the scene.

“I am extremely proud of my sister for reaching out to the community to help us and even prouder of the individuals who volunteered. I am grateful to be part of the Dunmore community,” said Amy.  

On Saturday, December 7, nearly 20 members of the community came out to help the Yando family decorate in Dunmore, including neighbors, an elementary schoolmate, the Dunmore Borough Police and Fire Department and Cadets, among others.  

 Ashley and Amy offered gratitude to all, especially the Fire and Police departments and neighbors Jim Becchetti and Nicole Archangeli and her two children, Natalia and Gianni.

Dr. Nicholas A. Lavoie performing dental procedures on a young patient.

Dr. Nicholas A. Lavoie takes dentistry to the '212th degree' #IE40Under40

When fresh out of high school or college, some people know which career paths to follow. After settling in, some discover a calling to positively impact people in the community that pulls them off course.

That describes the path of Dr. Nicholas A. Lavoie, who shifted careers to become a board-certified pediatric dentist. Today he offers oral health care at his new practice, Lavoie Pediatric Dentistry, in Swansea, Massachusetts.

He started his health care journey in the nursing profession.

My experiences as a nurse opened my eyes to the extent to which early childhood caries, the most common chronic disease in children, exists, and how severely it can impact overall health and emotional well-being. My heart was broken for these kids and I wanted to be able to address oral disease more directly, but my influence as a nurse was limited to referrals and preventive education. I decided to go back to school to become a dentist.

Dr. Nicholas A. Lavoie describes his career transition from nurse to pediatric dentist.

Helping children overcome and prevent cavities, a disease that affects 1 out of 5 children aged 5 to 11 years old, is a calling that the Incisal Edge 40 Under 40 honoree has dedicated his life to achieving. And so, he left nursing to help children who may not know about the consequences of dental neglect.

Dr. Nicholas A. Lavoie, makes the most of his NYC experience as an Incisal Edge 40 Under 40 honoree.

He believes in his mission so much that he built a new office that opened in August to better help and educate about the importance of oral health. Dr. Lavoie and his team are committed to providing an experience beyond the typical dental experience.

Our office culture places a significant emphasis on the fact that every patient is a VIP and an extended member of our dental family. We enjoy connecting on a personal level with each child who walks through the door, as well as their siblings, parents, or whoever else may accompany them. While most offices do make efforts in these areas, we attempt to reach the ‘212th degree.’

Dr. Nicholas A. Lavoie explains his team’s work ethic and the extent to which they provide individualized, high-quality care.
Dr. Nicholas A. Lavoie’s new practice in Swansea, Massachusetts uses advanced dental equipment to treat patients.

The new office features five operatories with room to expand to 10 as his dentistry grows. It’s designed to enhance patient comfort using the latest technology and old fashion hospitality.

Dr. Lavoie uses electronic record-keeping, an environmentally sustainable alternative to paper, as well as the latest digital radiology equipment. While patients wait in the lounge, he provides them with tablets, HDTVs and coffee. It’s a welcoming atmosphere, especially for his patients’ parents.

During the construction process, especially as the opening deadline approached, he experienced sleepless nights, but also the euphoria of building a new practice and helping children.

Dr. Nicholas A. Lavoie and his wife Katy at the grand opening of his practice.

Every child he meets is a meaningful encounter, Dr. Lavoie said, and a way for him “…to guide them through a difficult experience and to be able to get them smiling before they leave, or possibly even excited to come back, is an incredibly good feeling,” .

Like all professions, aspects challenge the ability to work efficiently, and dentistry is no exception.

Navigating the mess of dental insurance is, in my opinion, the largest difficulty. There are so many dental insurance companies that exist, each with their own set of rules in regard to range and frequency of treatments. It makes it incredibly confusing for both patients and dental staff, and phone calls to resolve any confusion can easily run upward of 30 minutes, which impacts the time and resources that can be focused on quality patient care.

Dr. Nicholas A. Lavoie

Outside the Dental Practice

Outside the office, Dr. Lavoie classifies spending time with family as the most important aspect of his life. He’s an animal lover and foodie, who rarely frequents the same restaurants.

He enjoys discovering new, culturally authentic cuisine, especially ones that induce sweat and ignite his taste buds. He enjoys watching football and, of course, as a New Englander, his favorite team is the New England Patriots, a team that has won six Super Bowls since 2002.

Dr. Lavoie, his dental team and new office are ready to help children form healthy dental habits through regular visits and self-care for years to come.

We strive every day to re-define the negative stigma that generally follows dentistry and create a generation of self-empowered individuals when it comes to oral health.

Dr. Nicholas A. Lavoie.
