Some dental hygiensts worried as many dentist offices reopen

jhon pablo

As dentist offices start to reopen following coronavirus shutdowns, many dental hygienists say they are worried it might be too soon to see patients.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention have advised elective procedures and non-urgent dental visits to be postponed. For dental offices that are open, the CDC’s recommendations include requiring everyone entering to wear a face mask or covering, screening patients for fever or coronavirus symptoms before they enter and screening employees before each shift.

Many offices are welcoming patients as states have started to reopen businesses. Each state allowing dentists to reopen has different standards that offices must follow.

So what are dentists doing to protect their patients and their workers as the coronavirus pandemic continues?

New procedures from dentists

Upon welcoming an inaugural class of 64 students in August 2013, the University of New England College of Dental Medicine became the first dental college in Northern New England. Shortly thereafter, the College dedicated its gleaming new Oral Health Center on UNE’s Portland Campus. 

In filling a glaring educational need for Maine and New England, the College of Dental Medicine is proud to serve students from Maine and its surrounding states, but also recognizes the national impact its program can have. Indeed, the inaugural class reflected a balance of students from New England and also from points well beyond. Of the initial 64 students, 24 hailed from Maine, representing more than 20 different towns. The rest found their way to UNE from 16 different U.S. states and Canada. 

As one of the few private universities in the nation with a comprehensive health education mission that also includes programs in medicine,

Winning Smiles Pediatric Dental Care

We’ve worked hard to create a space that’s welcoming, relaxing, and most of all, fun, for you and your child.  In fact, we like to think of it more as a dental “home” than a dental “office.”  The American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry defines a dental home as an “ongoing relationship between the dentist and the patient, inclusive of all aspects of oral health care delivered in a comprehensive, continuously accessible, coordinated, and family-centered way.”  From the caring and knowledgeable dentist and staff, to the child, parent and eco-friendly equipment and furnishings, we’ve done our best to make you feel like family in a place that will become your child’s dental home for years to come.  Our mission is to provide the kids of Pittsburgh with high quality dental education and treatment needed to grow into happy, healthy adults.

    Finest Dental collapse described as ‘scandal’ by former dentist

    Dr Charles Lister used to work for Finest Dental and described its collapse as “an absolute scandal”

    The collapse of a chain of cosmetic dental practices was “the worst failure of any corporate dental body the UK has ever seen”, one of its former dentists has said.

    Finest Dental closed all nine of its branches suddenly in February, leaving some patients mid-treatment and thousands of pounds out of pocket.

    Dr Charles Lister, who worked at one of the clinics, told the BBC the practices’ collapse was a “scandal”.

    Finest Dental has apologised.

    The BBC spoke to 87 of the firm’s clients who between them had paid £540,344 for dental work that was never completed.

    The dental chain closed its three branches in London and others in Winchester, Wokingham, Milton Keynes, Birmingham, Leicester and Brentwood overnight last month.

    How to Handle a Dental Emergency: Dentists’ Tips

    jhon pablo

    You may consider your teeth to be a low priority compared to the rest of your body. Aside from brushing and the occasional flossing, you probably neglect them until you experience dental problems like pain, swelling, or bleeding. Sometimes this can manifest into a dental emergency. But should you go to the hospital or your dentist?

    The American Dental Association (ADA) says that emergency room (ER) visits for dental problems have consistently been on the rise since 2000, jumping from 1.1 million to roughly 2.1 million a year. Of those visits, 1.65 million could have been referred to a dental practice instead, saving the healthcare system $1.7 billion, not to mention savings for the consumer, too. “Most ERs do not have dentists available,” says Mary Hayes, DDS, an ADA spokesperson based in Chicago. “Physicians have limited training when it comes to mouth issues, so your dentist is usually the best

    Dental Implants Restore Your Teeth For Life

    DenturesDental implants give you a long-term reason to smile.

    With their realistic look and stable support, dental implants are now the preferred dental restoration. However, compared to other treatments, they are still relatively new. Dr. Susan Silvestri and Dr. Ronnie Deninger, dentists in Slidell, Louisiana, have answered a few of the questions they hear from their patients about the efficacy of dental implants. 

    The downfalls of dentures…

    There was a time not long ago when removable dentures and partials were basically the only tooth replacement available. Dentures developed a reputation of being uncomfortable and artificial-looking, living up to their informal nickname: “false teeth.” Today, many people question the difference in cost between dental implants and dentures.

    While it’s true that dentures and partials are usually cheaper, your Slidell dentists will tell you that over time, the cost of dentures may grow. They will need regular maintenance to make sure they
