"You're in a career where nobody wants to see you and you're the last place they want to come back to and it's depressing."
Step aside, dentists, there’s a new best job in town. For the first time in years, dentist didn’t nab the top spot on U.S. News & World Report’s annual rankings. Though the list was, as usual, dominated by the health care industry, first place went to another field altogether: tech.
Their stocks, as well as those of other U.S. drug and medical equipment suppliers, have taken a beating in the past year as speculation over Amazon expanding its considerable reach gained momentum. But investors and analysts told Reuters that the larger overhang on the two dental suppliers, and privately held Benco Dental Supply, is a recent complaint filed against them by the U.S. Federal Trade Commission.
Whether or not mandatory formal screenings in the dental chair makes sense, however, it can’t hurt for dentists to be attuned to signs of abuse, and be prepared to point their patients to local support services.
While dentists may continue to spend most of their time practicing in an office, they will increasingly rely on new technologies, cameras, an Internet connection, and greater collaboration.
Doctors are doctors, and dentists are dentists, and never the twain shall meet. Whether you have health insurance is one thing, whether you have dental insurance is another. Your doctor doesn’t ask you if you’re flossing, and your dentist doesn’t ask you if you’re exercising. In America, we treat the mouth separately from the rest of the body, a bizarre situation that Mary Otto explores in her new book, Teeth: The Story of Beauty, Inequality, and the Struggle for Oral Health in America.
More women — attracted to the flexibility and relationships to patients — are joining the ranks of the profession.
Health spas, medical spas, pet spas, day spas and now dental spas - a concept long overdue that brings comfort to a setting that is all too commonly associated with shots, high pitch drills and pain.
No drills, no injections, easier access, lower costs: how technology is transforming dentistry for the better.
Now, many dentists are taking pains to win frightened patients back. Some practices let patients virtually sleep through the procedure. Others focus on maximizing soothing distractions while minimizing pain as well as the typical sounds and smells of dentistry that can trigger unpleasant memories.
Oral health has a profound impact on general health and welfare, and yet dentists and doctors continue to operate in silos. What will it take to bring the fields together and start improving lives?
A few weeks ago, I called the dentist I’ve used for more than 20 years for an appointment and got a message back from her receptionist: The dentist is no longer accepting patients who are covered by the insurance company I’m enrolled with. And just like that, I lost my dentist.
Who among us hasn’t had this thought, as a dentist industriously and cheerfully chisels and scrapes and drills away at your teeth: Surely there is a better way. When anthropologists last month discovered evidence of dental handiwork in a 14,000-year-old tooth, the surprising thing about it wasn’t the fact that people in the Stone Age had cavities and tried to do something about them. It was the fact that the procedure seemed so… familiar.
A two-step plan could help address the physician shortage and lack of access to dental care.
