Glenn J Marie DDS is a dentist based in New York, New York. Practicing out of his own office, named Dentistry for Children, Glenn J Marie DDS is a member of the American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry.

The American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry (AAPD) is a non-profit professional organization dedicated to providing guidelines and programs with the goal of improving the oral health of all children, including those with special needs. Founded in 1974, AAPD serves both its members and its mission through its services for children who are unable to afford to see a dentist (called Healthy Smiles, Healthy Children), and through its commitment to continuing education for its members.

The AAPD has a constantly-updated list of educational events and services for members who wish to learn about new, innovative dental practices and other oral health-related topics pertaining to treating children. These events cover a wide range of subjects, from the best way to treat tooth decay to the newest technologies for pediatric dental care.

The AAPD also has an annual, three-day session that moves around the country. In this yearly event, the AAPD brings together prominent professionals in pediatric dentistry to speak on current concerns and exhibit new products and technologies.

Glenn J. Marie, DDS, is a pediatric dentist in Staten Island, New York. Out of his private practice, he cares for young patients and helps them develop good oral hygiene to keep their teeth healthy for life. Outside his professional life, Glenn J. Marine, DDS, is a miniature train enthusiast and enjoys Lionel Trains.

The Railroad Museum of Long Island recently celebrated its 26th anniversary. A plethora of engineers, conductors, and trackmen were on hand for the celebratory event, which featured a number of attractions.

One of the most prominent exhibits was a 40-foot setup of various Lionel trains, and which featured a complete set of controls for the operation of lights, gates, figures, and machinery. New to this year’s birthday celebration were Lionel trains that actually traveled around tracks overhead.

The 1964-65 Long Island RR Pavilion’s World’s Fair train was another hit attraction at the event. Complementing this piece of history, Edward Koehler, Jr., a prominent railway historian, was on hand and gave a talk about steam locomotives.

The Railroad Museum of Long Island celebrates its birthday each August, with the next event coming in 2017.
