“Let Your Community Take Care of You”


Hello, CV Weekly readers! This month we have a lot of exciting news. As we all know, the holidays are fast approaching and that means a busy schedule for everyone packed with family, school and work celebrations non-stop until the New Year. In anticipation, I want to shine a light on an event and members that can help you look and feel your best, not only for the holidays, but all year long.

First, the Chamber of Commerce’s Annual 5K/Fun Run is coming up on Saturday, Oct. 27 and there is still time to sponsor and enter to run. The 5K is a perfect opportunity to burn off some calories and make some space to give that holiday turkey a good home. The race this year will be held at CV Park with registration set to begin at 7 a.m. and the race to follow at 8 a.m. Prepaid entry is $25 and guarantees a race T-shirt; the price will go up to $35 if you wait until the 27th. Stop by the Chamber office today to pick up or drop off your entry or sponsorship forms!

After the 5K you will be in need of some well-deserved rejuvenation and relaxation to prepare for the mental obstacle course that is the holiday season. For that, I would like to introduce our newest business member, The IVy by HHMD. The medical team led by Emil Avanes, MD, and Alina Shahinian, LVN, provide exceptional service and modern injection therapy to achieve a variety of optimal health goals. They provide IV infusions and injections so you can get more energy, lose weight, look younger, feel better and improve your overall health. Dr. Avanes is a primary care physician with more than 10 years of experience caring for common and complex health issues. The IVy specializes in vitamin therapy to support your overall health so you get the nutrients you need to thrive. The IVy by HHMD provides infusion and injection therapy that is relaxing and rejuvenating, taking health and wellness to the next level. At The IVy, you can enjoy a session on your schedule with spa-like amenities, including aromatherapy, fruit-infused water, hot towels and a serene environment. The IVy will be holding a grand opening on Thursday, Oct. 18 from 5:30 p.m. to 8 p.m. at their offices 3217 N. Verdugo Road. They would love to see you all there! To set up an appointment, call (818) 359-8196 or visit their website: https://www.theivybyhhmd.com/.

I also want to re-introduce Dr. Mia Yoon of Rosemont Smile Dental. Dr. Yoon and her staff can make everyone in your family happy to show off their pearly whites at every holiday gathering. Whether you need a comprehensive exam with dental X-rays and a thorough cleaning or are suffering from a sudden toothache, Dr. Yoon and her staff are here to respond to all dental needs for the whole family. Their focus is preventive and minimally-invasive dentistry that preserves a person’s natural teeth as much as possible. They offer one-on-one personalized care with a commitment to strong doctor-patient relationships based on trust. Dr. Yoon and her family relocated from New York to Crescenta Valley two years ago when her husband accepted a job offer from NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL) and she said it’s been a joy to treat fellow members of the Foothill community.

In addition to the services you may expect from a general dentist, Rosemont Smile offers cosmetic dentistry, Invisalign for a dazzling smile, in-office/take-home whitening, white spots removal, no-drilling cavity fillings and more. Call them at (818) 688-7646 to learn more about their services or request an appointment via their website at www.rosemontsmile.com. As Dr. Yoon says, “Smile big and be happy!”
