Being a dentist demands diagnostic, clinical and social skills and allows you the unique opportunity to pursue several careers which offer an intellectual and practical challenge as well as a service to society and a respected place in the community. In order to be successful and enjoy this profession, it is essential that you possess good people skills and an interest in their welfare.

Dentist, eye doctor grapple with new COVID-19 norms

by  on  in Dentish

By Kelly O’Sullivan, Independent Newsmedia

Routine dental and eye care has been on hold in Arizona since mid-March, when the COVID-19 pandemic forced those offices to suspend everything but emergency treatment to help curb the spread of the novel coronavirus, and to conserve medical equipment and supplies.

Some offices across the state have temporarily closed until restrictions are lifted, but others are staying open to alleviate the strain on emergency rooms and urgent care facilities, which often don’t have dental or eye specialists onsite.

“If you’ve got tooth pain or swelling in your mouth that you would normally got to the dentist for, still go to the dentist for it,” Dr. Don Parker, owner of Sundance Dental Group and Orthodontics in Buckeye, advised via telephone Friday, March 27. “Please don’t go to the emergency room or urgent care. Call your regular dentist and if they aren’t open, find one that

With many dentist offices closed, experts say it’s more important than ever to brush properly and floss regularly. Getty Images
  • Most dentist offices are closed for routine procedures during the COVID-19 outbreak.
  • Dentists are urging people to brush twice a day and floss once a day to take care of their teeth.
  • They say keeping your toothbrush clean is also important for good dental health.

Good dental hygiene might not be in the front of your mind in the middle of the COVID-19 pandemic.

That could change quickly if you develop a painful cavity and can’t get in to see a dentist.

“I understand that this isn’t the most normal of times, but it’s very important to control the things we can right now,” H. Dieu Luong, DDS, a New Jersey-based dentist, told Healthline. “On a long list of things in these trying times is oral care.”

Dentist creates 3D masks to fight coronavirus shortages

by  on  in Dentish

CUMMING, Ga. — A Georgia dentist spent the weekend brainstorming with friends that had a background in engineering and medicine to help fill the shortage of face masks for those on the front line.

Dr. Mark Causey runs a 3D capable orthodontic office that can scan patients and create full models of their teeth.

As dental offices close during the coronavirus outbreak, Causey has found a way to help the rest of the medical community. 

“There have been nurses in OR’s that have written my staff messages saying they were crying because they weren’t being given the proper equipment,” explains Causey.

He started by creating a 3D design for a mask that, when adding a filter and seal, can make potential substitutes for medical professionals.

This list should help tide you over until you can visit your preferred dentist for a proper diagnosis and treatment.

Because you must remember: Toothaches are a sign something is wrong – even when the pain goes away. Delaying or avoiding visiting your dentist can end up causing you more pain, more expenses, and more time-intensive treatments to solve your problem than merely having it taken care of at the first sign.

For example, listen to this true story about a home remedy gone
