There is evidence that untreated periodontal disease in pregnant women is a significant risk factor for both pre-term and low birth weight babies. Mothers of low birth weight infants who are otherwise at low risk had significantly more severe periodontal disease than control mothers of normal birth weight infants. The oral cavity and a patient's oral health

can no longer be viewed as separate from overall patient well being. As systemic diseases can have severe oral ramifications, so too can untreated periodontal diseases increase the incidence of a number of serious systemic diseases. It is imperative that health care be directed at the treatment of the total patient so as to maximize treatment outcomes and the patient's quality of life.

has served in a number of leadership roles during his tenure in Concord and will work closely with Bettencourt in establishing the Republican agenda. “Representative Jasper brings a wealth of knowledge and experience to the majority office,” said Bettencourt. “He has earned the respect of our caucus over the years through his hard work and dedication to the legislative process and will be a tremendous asset to our team,” he added. Bettencourt also named five assistant majority leaders to work with Representative Jasper, including Reps. David Hess of Hooksett (11th term); Beverly Rodeschin of Newport (11th term); Edwin Smith of Hinsdale (seventh term); Dick Drisko of Hollis (sixth term); and Joe Fleck of Wakefield (second term). Relative newcomer Representative Peter Silva of Nashua, who distinguished himself in just his first term as a member of the House Judiciary committee, has been tapped by Bettencourt to serve as the Majority Whip. “I believe that it is important that we bring a mixture of both veteran legislators and newcomers onto our team. Representative Silva impressed many of us as a first-year member last session and I know that he will bring a fresh prospective to the majority office,” said Bettencourt. Representative Betsey Patten of Moultonborough, also entering

her ninth term in the House, will join the leadership team as the Deputy Majority Whip. In naming Patten, Bettencourt pointed to her experience as both a former committee chair and member of leadership. “I have seen firsthand over the last few years how hard Representative Patten works on legislation and I am excited to have her part of our leadership team.” Joining Representative Patten as Assistant Majority Whips are Representatives David Welch of Kingston (14th term), Mary Griffin of Windham (eighth term), John Tholl of Whitefield (eighth term), Mike McCarthy of Nashua (second term), and Representative Molly Smith of Hooksett (first term). Representative Paul Mirski of Enfield, who returns for his sixth term following a four-year absence from the House, has been named the Majority Policy Advisor to the leadership team. “Representative Mirski is one of the most respected members of the Republican caucus and I will count heavily on his advice and counsel as we move forward in the legislative session,” said Bettencourt. Finally, Representatives Phil Greazzo of Manchester and Michelle

Peckham of North Hampton, both newcomers to the State House, will fill the role of Majority Freshman Liaison. “With such a large incoming freshman class, it is important that they have a strong voice within the entire caucus. Both Representatives Greazzo and Peckham will work as liaisons between the freshmen caucus and leadership,” concluded Bettencourt. Representative Bettencourt will gather his leadership team this month to begin mapping out the coming session. It is anticipated that the Chair and Vice Chairs of the House standing committees will be announced later this month.
