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.
The motivation, passion, and the internal will to want to succeed in life has always dwelled within me, so ultimately, all I needed was to find what interest me in life. In the beginning, I found myself staring down the road of becoming a teacher or dental hygienist. At first the idea of becoming a teacher seemed like a prominent, and fulfilling job. I get to convey knowledge to groups of young individuals, I also get to work in a setting with other mature adults who share my passion, and I have the opportunity to work with children; but, ultimately, there was just one main component missing for me, and that was the hands-on aspect. I told myself that I wanted to be involved in a career that is very hands-on. That’s when I decided to make the
My ambition to study Dental Hygiene and Therapy at University commenced in my teenage years, when I first came to London and visited the dentist. The professional approach coupled with a kind and compassionate nature and all of the different instruments and scientific technology the Dental Hygienist and Therapist used fascinated me.
Sue is a dental hygienist, employed in an office with another hygienist. This hygienist has 11 years work experience in this industry. Both Sue and this hygienist shared a good friendship together. However, sue noticed that most of the patients have sub gingival calculus after the other hygienist cleans their teeth. When sue observed careful about how the other hygienist is doing the process, sue could see that she is using an anterior sickle instrument and only scales suprgingvally. Sue found that this is an unethical practice done by her colleague that is causing harm to the patients. As per the law, the other hygienist is not supposed to do an act that is harmful to the patients. Hence, watching this, setting aside her friendship with the
Evidence based dental hygiene is the practice of giving your patients the best care possible with a combination of adequate techniques and patient values. When evaluating a patient, it is important to understand their values as well as what that they need clinically to improve their oral health. In today’s society, due to the internet and social media, people are presented with the latest fads in dental hygiene on a daily basis. When presented with a question in regard to this, we must research rather than just shut the idea down entirely. As a dental hygienist, it is our responsibility to research these fads and see if there is substance (scientific evidence, patient preferences, clinical/patient circumstances and clinicians experience and
Beverly Jimenez, also known as, ‘Dr.Sissy’, stretches out of her petite, cozy office and steps into the ample operatory with dark orange walls and sticky purple chairs. Sounds of suction and the metal clanking of tools can be heard. She is asked to take a look at her patient's teeth whenever she is ready. She takes a seat on the low stool and opens her metal tools from their blue transparent package. She begins to examine the teeth of a young girl. Jimenez’ smooth chocolaty brown hair glistens under the bright white light. It is hard to hear her talk because of the baby blue surgical mask that is strapped from ear to ear covering her mouth. Once she finishes the examination, she calmly strolls back to her desk to continue her paperwork. The chatter of the young women at the desk can be heard from the waiting room. They are trying to decide which scrubs to buy as they wait for new patients to check in. The young girl who recently received a cleaning walks out of the operatory with a blue toothbrush in her hand. She stops by the brown treasure chest to pick out a small trinket and skips back to her mother.
Dental practitioners are still a simple target. From motion pictures and TV, to magazines and books, dental specialists are every now and again depicted as either characteristically savage or covetous and unscrupulous. Shockingly, these dental records are regularly characteristically uneven and distort the actualities. The most recent inductee to the hit parade is James Frey's top of the line book 'A Million Little Pieces.' Although as of late on the Oprah Winfrey Show, Frey was compelled to admit to both 'oversights and untruths', he didn't down from the "memories" of his dental experience. The aggregate aftereffect of this flood of falsehood is that individuals can get to be scared of the dental specialist, and the dental treatment they require.
In Miner’s essay on the Nacirema culture has many comparisons to the United States’ cultures. There are many examples that Miner provides in his essay. The first comparison is to a chest which in the United States’ culture is a medicine cabinet. The second comparison that is made is about the fascination with mouth some people in the United States fear the dentist in the Nacirema culture “They believe that their teeth will fall out, their gums bleed, their jaws shrink, their friends will desert them, and their lovers reject them (Nanda, Warms 2). In the United States culture generally people will go to the dentist twice a year. The third comparison is to the medicine man and he has a temple or latiposh. In the United States is a doctor
When you are young, you are asked: "what do you want to be when you grow up?" Most children would reply by saying a superhero, a professional basketball player, a model, etc. My response was always, someone who can make a difference in an individual's life. Finding out how I was going to do that exactly was challenging until I reached my junior year in high school. I remember going to the Dental Office to get my regular cleaning and after watching my Dental Hygienist at the time, conduct her regular duties such as cleaning my teeth and educating me on good oral health I was intrigued. At that very moment, I knew that I wanted to help others by becoming a Dental Hygienist. I think that promoting and educating others on good oral health is very important because it

Radiation dosage from such dental radiographs are low and are thought to present minimal risk (Enabulele & Igbinedion, 2013)
Ever since I was young, dentistry had sparked my interest for my career. Dentistry appeals to me chiefly because I had always wanted to be involved in a profession where I can help people. My love towards human biology especially human teeth also contributes to my career choice. Most importantly, I find human teeth interesting, often fascinating. Due to my compassionate nature, I have since long known that I would want to pursue dentistry as my career because I get to form relationships with my patients, work hand in hand with many people on a face to face basis. I would be lying if I say the high income wasn’t one of my reasons why did I choose dentistry, but on top of that, I get to satisfy the needs of every patient, help people ‘hands-on’,
