A dental hygienist noticed that one of her patients was having a periodontal disease that was not noted in the chart. She tried to discuss this with a dentist by stating that her patient have a moderately advanced stage of periodontal disease. The probing results showed that some of the patient's periodontal pockets were 6 mm deep. The dentist response was not to worry about the patient and to keep cleaning out the pockets periodically. The dental hygienist did not feel comfortable treating the patient and asked a dentist to excuse her from performing a treatment.
Someday I might become a dental hygienist because they make a lot of money. Along with, educating patients about the importance of oral health. In a general dentist’s office the dental hygienist plays an important role, such as educating patients on the importance of maintaining good oral hygiene and preventive oral care. These practices include, brush and floss their teeth correctly, select the correct type of toothbrush for their teeth. They also inform patients on how to maintain a good diet to improve their dental and gum health.
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

Growing up children have think they know what they want to be when they grow up but as they progress and get older they’re ideal career changes for the most part based on the changes they go threw themselves and experiences.

Students were divided in groups of three, with two students setting up and one student coaching them through the process. My job was to ensure the students were following the correct steps and stopping and correcting any mistakes. It was important to educate them on correct infection control protocols to reduce potential risk for cross-contamination and instill good habits from the beginning. I also assisted in helping them identify oral landmarks and tooth numbering. This experience was rewarding and fulfilling as I remember how the advice from my peers helped me succeed in the program and my goal was to deliver the same level of information and assistance to help future dental hygiene student
I believe my practical experience and what I’ve learned during my six years as a dental assistant at Plainview Oral sets me apart from other students. Not only for the dental skills that I have acquired, but also for the kindness and care that I have demonstrated, when working with patients in real life situations. Many patients have thanked me for my professional bedside manner both before, during, and after surgery. I also assisted patients with disabilities, and was able to exhibit a patient and positive attitude when working with them. Hands-on skills such as taking impressions, radiographs, and making night guards will help me thrive in dental school.
This week I had the opportunity to spend some time in both the OR and Endoscopy unit. Going into the practice days I was excited and optimistic about what I was going to take away from the experience, as I considered my possible future in working in the operative setting. However, by the second day of practice, I realized that I wasn’t overly excited about either of the units and that the expectations I had set out, didn’t quite match up like I had hoped. Even though I don’t feel as though nursing in either of the units is for me, I was able to take away new knowledge that I believe has enhanced my overall nursing practice.
Dental Hygiene Program Essay Introduction 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.

Advanced Dental Technology Maintains Oral Health People are struggling to maintain their oral health by not sufficiently and regularly brushing or flossing well enough. Now, if people do not care about or try to at least maintain their oral health then the dental industry could shut down. The reason being, that people do not care enough or do not have enough money to go to dental practices to get an oral checkup, results in having bad oral care. Not long after, people will have to deal with oral diseases and difficulties if they do not get accustomed to taking better care of the inside of their mouths and get the assistance that they need.
C. Analysis In this chapter, I will make critical analysis on the results of the classroom observation with my opinion. 1. Teacher’s Classroom Management a. Managing students to pay attention to the lesson According to Warfield (2016) mentioned that classroom surrounding very affects to student performance.
Student Engagement A good teacher should know how to engage students in learning activities and be able to respond to diverse students needs in the classroom. The classroom observations I have seen these past week has shown me examples of good teachers. In all the classes I observed the students sat quietly and were always ready to raise their hands and answer questions. In my kindergarten class all the students were really into their assignments and wanted approval of their work from their teacher.
Staff were welcoming and, despite the organising of the observation taking a long time, the observation gave good insights in to patient experiences and leadership. I think the observation was useful to my partner and I, as it made us feel as if we now had a better insight in to patient experience and its effects on care. The experience itself was good; it was useful to gain that insight. One thing I did realise that was although we thought it went well, the insights we gained may not have been a true reflection of patient experience. To combat this, we could have asked more individuals to conduct the observations on various dates at various times.
