Becoming a dental hygienist has not only been just a dream of mine, but also my fathers. From a young age, my father started inspiring me to pursue a career in the field of dentistry. After countless hours of watching videos, speaking to advisors about the career path, and shadowing underneath Dr. Soltanian’s dental hygienist by the name Ms. Lopez that I solidified the idea of becoming a dental hygienist. I fell in love with becoming a dental hygienist after the first day of shadowing her. The idea of being involved in the field of dentistry has reinforced the idea of promoting proper oral hygiene not just within myself, but with others too. It intrigues me to learn about the various diseases and conditions that can manifest without proper care taken off a person’s teeth. I think people underestimate the power and overall importance of brushing, and flossing of the teeth on a regular basis. The short time I’ve spent under Ms. Lopez has help emphasize the importance of knowing the anatomy and physiology aspect of the teeth. The knowledge I obtained from shadowing, and numerous hours of online research has help convey to me knowledge on how to better prevent oral
When looking back on my overall experience with my DH2 student, I actually learned a lot as a client sitting in the chair. I learned the proper procedure of how and what the dental hygienist are required to do. In a real world, I didn’t know what my care provider was doing to me. They clean and just polish. Everything goes in a flash. I liked how my DH2 explained what she was doing to me, what changes I have to make with my oral health, and what procedures that are needed to be done. Plus, she provided me a few pointers and tips on what I have to do when I am in her position next semester and how I have to act professional and to be prepared for anything that suddenly happens. I liked my DH2 she was very nice and the overall experience with her was good.

As Nelson Mandela said, “Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world.” This is my absolute favorite quote. This is because it’s so true and it has made me want to do more with my life. Throughout my life, I have always pushed myself to be better and to become more educated. It started when I was young with sports. It wasn’t good enough that I was a good dancer, so I became a 12-year-old competing in the senior category (16 and up.) For baseball, I was always at the highest level and would go sub for the older girls when they needed help. In curling, I started and within one year I was picked up by a team to train for 4 years for the Winter Games. It was nothing new for me to push myself harder to become

Porphyromonas gingivalis, Tannerella forsythia and Treponema denticola create what is called red complex, which appears to be associated with disease symptoms in most chronic periodontitis. The second important group of bacteria forms orange complex, including Fusobacterium nucleatum and Prevotella intermedia. Orange complex bacteria provide an essential aid in allowing the colonization of periodontal tissue by a red complex. Another group of bacteria forms green complex, which includes species: Capnocytophaga sputigena, C. gingivalis, and Eikenella corrodens. These species are also associated with disease symptoms in chronic periodontitis, but with a less aggressive clinical course in contrast to the red complex (8,9). There is co-existence of green group and yellow complex, mainly consisting of the oral streptococci, group "Mitis" (S. mitis, S. oralis, S. gordonii, S. sanguinis) and connected to this complex Parvimonas micra belonging to dominant perio pathogens

The effectiveness of fluoride water is greatest for deciduous dentition, less caries in fluoridated communities with a range of 30-60 percent. In the ages between 8-12, is about 20-40 percent less caries in the mixed dentition and 15-35 percent less caries in adolescents between the ages 14-17 (E Newburn, 1989, p. 279). Water fluoridation was associated with reduction in dental caries experience about 29% substantially, and across all age groups 32% in permanent caries experience. The early studies reported that decay experience reduction in almost about 50% or more. In the early 1970s the fluoridated toothpaste has very important source of fluoride. Thus the water fluoridation efficacy has decline in the recent years. Since the non-fluoridated decay value has fallen. While the reduction of relative disease still continue by 50%. Nonetheless, the public health professionals opinion involved, the reduction in value of decay is more than significant enough by fluoridation to warrant the policy continuation (M. Joe, 2005, p. 2). Despite the effectiveness of water fluoridation considerable evidence at an individual level are rare.

With my own mouth’s bacteria there is also contamination (the white spots) which is also bacterial growth. The agar plate might have been contaminated during the experiment. It might have been contaminated from the swab sticks, breathing, or sneezing.

Motivation is elicited from within the patient. Rather than externally imposed upon a patient by a practitioner. Motivational interviewing theory is based on the fact that individuals have within them their own reasons for changing. The role of practitioner is to bring out and reinforce these reasons. Motivational interviewing was to begin with, started in the field of addictive behavior change problem. It included health behaviors such as, tobacco use and diet and exercise. The ideology of motivational interviewing have been recently tested in the field of dentistry47.

• Sensitive Tooth: One might experience sharp tooth pain after the consumption of a hot or cold substance. This may be as a result of the tooth enamel being worn down or due to teeth whitening.
It is thought that the most prevalent source of such microorganisms is from the mother, although the exact mechanism of transmission is not well understood. Once acquired, a source of carbohydrates such as sucrose or fructose feeds the bacteria, which reduce the pH in the mouth as they proliferate, leading to demineralization of the enamel and dentin. The disease typically manifests in areas that are not commonly associated with later onset caries, most notably the smooth surfaces of the maxillary incisors. As the condition progresses, it spreads to the canines and molars, propagating to the mandibular teeth, with the mandibular incisors typically the last and least affected, due to their proximity to the primary salivary glands and protection from the substrate provided by the nipple of the bottle or the spout of the sippy
