A dental hygienist noticed that one of her patients was having a periodontal disease that was not noted in the chart.

The first action i would take, would be to ask for the schools lunch schedules and test if the food they are serving has a high percentage of fluoride which is the cause of developing mottled teeth. The next step would be to test the public water fountains and test for a high percentage of fluoride as well. Then if either of the two tested positive then i would work to change their dieting schedules then better purifying the water of fluoride. I will then gather information over the next few weeks to see if the number of students with mottled teeth would decrease.
Informed consent is an important part of patient autonomy. Discuss how you inform your patient about implants and the potential risks / complications associated with implants. Our practice does not offer implant placement. We usually refer our patients to a specialist if they choose to get implant instead of a permanent bridge. My job is to inform the patient about the importance of immaculate homecare and the proper ways of caring for the implants after placement.
After reading Million Dollar Dentistry by Gray Kadi, I learned that the traditional way of dentistry practice is stressful and you are leaving so much money on the table if you continue to practice dentistry the old fashion way. Also I learned that if you use Mr. Kadi suggestion you will be living a happier and stress-free life. One of the biggest take-away I got after reading this book is “when everyone is responsible for everything, no one is truly responsible for anything.” I really like this concept, it gives everyone in their roles accountability and incentives to bring in new/returning patients. For example, the treatment coordinator he/she is responsible for closing the case after the patient comes out of hygiene.

Dental assistants’ contribution to the doctor is to allow for efficient dental treatment by preparing the patient for the procedure, sterilizing instruments, passing instruments during the procedure, holding suction devices, exposing dental radiographs, taking impressions, and fabricating provisional crowns. Along with crowns, Rt1 Dental offers veneers which are wafer-thin, custom-made shells of tooth-colored materials designed to cover the front surface of teeth to improve your smile. Many people are skeptical about other procedures like cavities and root canals. During these procedures, pain is thought to be the leading dynamic because of the injections. The assistants and Dr. Trakhtman know of various techniques to help lessen the pain

Your dentist will recommend partials if you have remaining healthy teeth in the mouth. The partial plate is made up of one or more teeth with clasps that anchor the denture to the adjacent natural teeth in the mouth. Also known as removable prostheses, partial dentures are used on patients whose remaining natural teeth cannot hold a bridge. Materials Used in Partial Dentures There are three types of partial dentures based on the materials used to make them. These are: 1.
Dental implants are a long term replacement of teeth that are positioned in the jawbone beneath the gums. “They are substitutes for the roots of missing teeth and act as an anchor for a replacement tooth, crown, or a set of replacement teeth” (Dominguez). Since these are implanted directly to the jawbone, the gum will need to heal first and when the post is connected to the original implant, that is when the artificial tooth will be mounted. The convenience of this technology is that the adjacent teeth do not need to be prepped or dealt with when replacing the missing teeth. When the implants are properly maintained, they can typically last a lifetime and it is recommended to always take better care of the tooth.
