Ribbon cut for denture service

Mayo Denture Center was  welcomed to the Brookings-Harbor Chamber of Commerce Thursday afternoon with a ribbon cutting ceremony.

“It’s an official welcoming by the chamber, and we provide it gladly,” Brookings-Harbor Chamber of Commerce President Les Cohen said.

Members of the chamber and the community attended the ceremony.

 

 Mayo Denture is open from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday, and is located at 1041 Chetco Ave.

The center opened Nov. 1.

“Opening my own place is a dream of mine,” co-owner Kismet Mayo said. “I grew up in this business. It’s always been my dream to continue in my family’s footsteps.”

The center, which is owned by Kismet and her husband Chris Mayo, offers complete dentures and partials, relines and repairs, as well as  implant retained dentures.

“We’re the only denturist in the area that does implant retained dentures,” Kismet said.

Chris and Kismet opened because the service is underserved in the community.

“It’s a service that Brookings needs,” Kismet said. “It’s my goal for everybody to know that we’re here. To know that we’re affordable and have quality.”

 Kismet grew up in the area, worked as a nurse for 20 years and has degrees in Denturism and Advanced Dental Pathology. Chris is a nurse.

“I’ve done it my whole life. It’s rewarding to me,” Kismet said. It can be very life changing for a patient who is not able to eat.”

Cohen said the chamber is thrilled to see people like Chris and Kismet come back to Brookings.

“We’re really excited about that,” he said.

  • Focus turns to U.S. data as China slowdown looms
    After a dizzying two weeks that saw a rapid plunge and rebound in equity prices, investors are looking forward to a week of economic data that may provide clarity on the likelihood of a near-term U.S. interest rate hike and help tamp down the market's recent wild swings. The economic figures will culminate in Friday?s jobs report that should reveal more about the strength of the U.S. economy. Car sales, construction spending, the Federal Reserve's "beige book" and jobs growth may show the economy is strong enough to withstand the first rate hike in nearly a decade from the Federal Reserve, despite worries about a hard landing for China?s economy.
  • Fed's Fischer sees inflation rebound, allowing gradual rate hikes
    U.S. inflation will likely rebound as pressure from the dollar fades, allowing the Federal Reserve to raise interest rates gradually, Fed Vice Chairman Stanley Fischer said on Saturday in a speech careful not to overreact to a possible Chinese slowdown. The influential U.S. central banker was circumspect whether he would prefer to raise rates from near zero at a much-anticipated policy meeting on Sept. 16-17. The cautious confidence from Fischer, as well as from Bank of England Governor Mark Carney who spoke at a conference alongside him, suggests at least two major central banks are poised to look beyond a week of financial-market turmoil brought on by fears that China's economy is faltering.
  • Buffett's Berkshire takes $4.48 billion stake in Phillips 66
    The 57.98 million-share, or roughly 10.8 percent, stake was revealed in a Friday night filing with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission. Phillips 66 shares closed Friday at $77.23. Berkshire once held a large stake in the Houston-based company, but shed nearly two-thirds of it in February 2014 when it swapped $1.35 billion of shares for a chemicals business that it folded into its Lubrizol unit.
