Hidden Values

Be Your Own Boss!

To be a successful publisher you must be able to work on your own and have sales experience. Part of your daily activity will be to call on businesses that should be involved in your Directory. However, unlike most advertising sales, ” The Sale” is normally a one-time “sale.” Once a business becomes involved in your Directory they will be pleased with their results and stay in you Directory for years.

After the initial sale your business is one of servicing the account by including them in your Directory each month. Your ads can be compared to an oil well. Once you sell the ad, the ad continues to work and reap benefits for you and your advertisers.
Our individual owners enjoy having their own business and being their own boss!
We will consult with you, make available our “Confidential Training Manual,” a proven operating system and supply you with the master forms, agreements, logos, etc…everything you will need to operate your own business.

As the publishing company, Hidden Values® will oversee the printing of your Directories.

Bascially, we will supply you with all the information you need to start your successful business and have your Directories printed and shipped to you.

Kevin J. Andrews Orthodontics

AndrewsBracesLogokevinDr. Kevin J. Andrews is an artist, but he doesn’t work with oils or watercolors, he works with teeth. Using wire, plastic, glue and bits of metal, he produces world-class smiles in his orthodontic office at 2125 Green Vista Drive, Sparks, Nevada. He’s a guy who loves what he’s doing and can’t imagine doing anything else!

Dr. Andrews was raised in Southern California and received his Doctor of Dental Surgery degree from Loma Linda Dental School in 1988. He practiced dentistry for two years before returning to school to specialize in orthodontics. He then moved back to Reno where two generations of his family have lived. Dr. Andrews is a member of the American Association of Orthodontists, a certified Diplomate of the National Board of Orthodontics and the Former President of the Nevada Orthodontic Association, for the state of Nevada.

In September of 1993, he bought a small practice in Reno and has built it up to its present level. In February 1998, Dr. Andrews relocated his practice to Sparks, Nevada and since then has been welcoming patients to his well-appointed office across from Wildcreek Golf Course. There, he and his team offer what he calls “personalized orthodontics.”

Dr. Kevin J. Andrews is a specialist in smiles. He uses the latest technology to give his patients a new sense of self and says he gets the most satisfaction from, “Knowing that we’re setting our patients up for good health and positive self-images for the rest of their lives. It’s important to me that when they come here, we make them feel special and they do – you can see it in their smiles!” “About 20% of our patients are adults between the ages of 25 and 45,” he says, “although I’ve treated patients as young as 4 years old, and as old as 74.”

The first visit to Dr. Andrews involves an orthodontic evaluation that includes an x-ray, visual examination and computerized digital imaging photographs of the patient’s teeth and face which gives the patient and the doctor a full color view.

We are proud to provide speech pathology & occupational therapy services for children in Reno, Sparks, Carson City, Lake Tahoe, Fernley, Gardnerville, & the greater Northern Nevada area.

Our Philosophy

Our therapeutic sessions are driven by the following philosophies to best serve our clients:


“In every conceivable manner, the family is link to our past, bridge to our future.” Alex Haley

Since most communication and life skills take place at home and in the community, it is essential for us to work closely with families. We provide not only quality intervention, but we also provide caregivers with strategies to facilitate their children’s speech-language and life skills in everyday routines, such as grocery shopping and mealtimes.


“If you want your children to improve, let them overhear the nice things you say about them to others.” Haim Ginott

Successful communication and interactions with others enhance and cultivate self-esteem. Success with life skills in everyday activities also enhances and cultivates self-esteem. We empower children by using a child-directed therapeutic model. We also empower parents by showing them how they can scaffold successful communication and life skills. We focus on individual strengths and interests of each family to target specific goals. We also provide treatment based on the child’s strengths and weaknesses, not within the box of a specific diagnosis, if a child has one.


“Play is the beginning of knowledge.” Anonymous

Play is the primary focus of our therapy. Because learning is an interactive process, we use hands-on activities and games that allow children to participate actively in our sessions. This naturalistic approach allows children to have fun and improve their communication and life skills at the same time.

Sonshine Gardens Daycare & Preschool

Sonshine Gardens

Teach your children to choose the right path, and when they are older, they will remain upon it.  Proverbs 22:6 NLT

Sonshine Gardens Daycare & Preschool is committed to providing a safe, faith based family environment where we will help your child grow in 5-key interconnected areas of development.

  1. Physical development:  Through physically stimulating games and creative activities.
  2. Intellectual development: Through activities and exercises relating to the physical growth of the brain.
  3. Social development: Through helping your child to gain the knowledge and skills of communication needed to interact successfully with others.
  4. Emotional development: Healthy emotional development lays the foundation for academic performance, mental health, and healthy relationships. Children have the capacity to regulate and understand their emotions and behavior and to manage successful, appropriate forms of expression and interactions with others.
  5. Moral/Spiritual development: the growing understanding of right and wrong (conscience) and laying a spiritual foundation in teaching and training our children about God and His love for us, while establishing God’s Word as the spiritual foundation and Jesus as the cornerstone to the building blocks of life.

We consider ourselves your child’s extended family, planting the Word and seed of faith, nurturing with Love, watering with Truth, and preparing your child for Kindergarten and their lives ahead. Our children are our inheritance and our future and we have a God ordained obligation to teach them well. At Sonshine Gardens, your child will experience love, significance and a true sense of belonging.   Our gifted staff of childcare providers and teachers will love on your child from the moment they enter the doors and keep them in their care until you pick them up each evening.  There is nothing more important than the healthy balanced development of a child.

We have installed a video surveillance system for your child’s safety and your peace of mind.  You can access this system from your computer to watch your child throughout the day.
