Julie Hayden Dear House District 7, I would like to introduce you to my husband, Cedric Ross Hayden. Cedric grew up in Oregon in a lively house full of rambunctious boys and a wonderful sister. His childhood was a busy one in which the family both worked hard together and enjoyed fun filled afternoons at the nearby creek. His family remains close and treasures their time together playing table games and enjoying fresh veggies from his mom Marilyn’s garden. Cedric followed in his dad’s (Cedric Senior’s) footsteps becoming a dentist. In fact, his siblings also joined them in the health care field, with four becoming dentists, one physician, and a dental hygienists. Thanks to long hours and a lots of hard work Hayden Family Dentistry Group became Oregon’s first network providing statewide access to dental care. Over time Cedric found his passion working in the hospital with challenging cases consisting of mostly developmentally disabled adults. To this day he always comes home after these with a smile of satisfaction born out of knowing he improved someone’s smile. Another passion of Cedric’s is fighting wildfire in the summer. Kygan, our four year old son, calls daddy “a working man” and can’t wait to join him on the “big toys.” Cedric and I are also are the proud parents of a precious eight year old handicapped daughter who loves nothing more than watching out the window for daddy’s car coming up the driveway after a long day in Salem, where he serves as State Representative for District 7. She runs to the door, hugs him tightly and lovingly nestles into his arms. After sitting down he pulls her onto his lap and patiently recaps the day’s events to us all. Camping in the backyard is a big event for us each summer. When the warm weather finally comes, Cedric and Wessen, our nine year old son, pitch a tent 50 feet from the back door, and my adventure loving, Everest climbing husband relaxes as we begin our weekly campouts. Thick air mattresses, piles of warm blankets, and lots of audio stories surround a loving family enjoying every moment they’re together. I hope this little peek into our family helps you get...

On Easter Weekend the Mobile Dental Unit of Caring Hands Worldwide swung into action to serve Veterans at the Fall Creek Event Center. Veterans attending were served a substantial breakfast before rotating to the dental stations.  Services offered included examinations, x-rays, cleanings, fillings and extractions, as well as Life Style Counseling.  The veterans, who represented branches of service including the Marines, Navy, Airforce and Army ranged in age from 27 to 67, came from Oakridge, Springfield, Eugene, Lane Community College, and the University of Oregon. Many thanks to the 27 individuals who provided the care, including dentists and hygienists, dental assistants,  students, cooks,  and other community volunteers. This and other similar free dental clinics are made possible by the passage of House Bill 3139 which allows the placement and operation of mobile dental clinics on private property for up to 180 days a year, a bill introduced and sponsored by Representative Cedric Hayden. Our heartfelt appreciation goes out to all those who have protected our Nation and Freedoms in the service of our Country.  Thank...
