Starting Monday, a Ferguson Township dentist is expected be open to see patients.
Jocelyn Anderton said that last year she purchased the Dermatology Associates building at 1393 N. Atherton St.
After making extensive renovations to the facilities, she said her practice will open Monday. Her practice was formerly in Scenery Park.
“We’re very excited about our new office,” Anderton said.
Anderton graduated from The College of Wooster with a degree in chemistry and pursued dental school at the University of Pittsburgh School of Dental Medicine. Upon graduation, Anderton practiced in the Pittsburgh area before relocating to State College.
Dunkin’ ad has local ties
Dunkin’ Donuts released an advertising campaign in the fall that featured State College resident Nikki Lynne.
Dunkin’ Donuts said in a press release that the “My Dunkin” advertising campaign featured real fans and their social media content.
Through thousands of posts, the coffee and baked goods provider selected a tweet by Lynne that said, “Just found a @DunkinDonuts pumpkin flavored K-Cup in my coffee stash. Best Day ever!!!”
Dunkin’ Donuts said Lynne tweeted this last summer, and her tweet and story is used in one of six new ads.
Lynne reportedly visits Dunkin’ Donuts daily, and local employees know her by name. Lynne graduated from Penn State with a degree in kinesiology.
KCF Technologies in State College was awarded a Phase I Small Business Innovation Research project grant to help improve sensing technologies used to monitor socket fit and the health of residual limbs of amputees.
KCF is developing a socket sensor system that will use wireless technology along with thin, flexible and ultra-low power sensors to help measure pressure and temperature of the skin, and track other aspects of limb health.
KCF Technologies said the only way to measure those aspects was to wait until the patient reports pain or has skin breakdown issues due to improper socket fit.
The award ceremony will be held 10 a.m. at 336 S. Fraser St. and will include the giveaway of other funding awards to small companies that are developing tech products or services in the shale gas area or helping create tech products that help solve some of the industry’s challenges.

The lunch will explore economic development and how it can benefit Centre County, and how the chamber can help make that happen.
