    15 Oct 2014 | 7:01 am
    One thing I’ve learned over the years is that being a dental hygienist is easy compared to comedy. Every time I imagine that I’ve got the spotlight, that it’s just me and a microphone, and I’m telling dumb jokes about cleaning teeth, I get this intense knot in my stomach that makes me realize it’s really not my calling. Ask me to write something funny; well, I have days to think about it, time to play with the words, rewrite them when they’re not working right. But delivery? Only to your screen, kid. Punchlines, storytelling, pacing, all that in real time?

Now, I’m no infectious disease expert. I’m simply a dental hygienist who lives in the Dallas area, the center of the recent Ebola panic. And we should be terrified of what Ebola does to its victims. It’s scary, it’s creepy, and it’s lethal, in a super-speedy, no-time-to-say-goodbye-to-your-loved-ones zombie apocalypse way that you have probably freaked yourself…

Stefan Bracha, M.D., suggested upsetting dental experiences could install PTSD in patients, which might then last their entire lives. Along with another couple of miscreants, Bracha advised that any caption including the word “phobia,” or “anxiety,” wasn’t humorless enough to describe the unfounded fear of our selfless, albeit remarkably remunerative, healing art.

  • Gum diease can lead to selective disarming of the immune system

    wisdom
    18 Oct 2014 | 8:28 pm
    A new study has shown that bacteria responsible for many cases of periodontitis causes dysbiosis in a two prong manipulation of the immune system. The researchers say that periodontal bacterium porphyromonas gingivalis acts on two molecular pathways to block immune cells’ killing ability while preserving the cells’ ability to cause inflammation. This protects these bacteria from being removed by the immune system and leads to bone loss and inflammation which is characteristic of periodontitis. The researchers say when inflammation occurs breakdown products are produced which…

The dental instruments used were believed to be clean, but the VA monitors said they were not sterilized. Only a single load of dental equipment, which was typically sent from one medical center with a dental clinic to a different medical center for sterilization was not performed.

  • Should Teens Have Wisdom Teeth Pulled?

    Brent Cornelius D.D.S.
    16 Oct 2014 | 12:00 pm
    As your teenage ages, his or her wisdom will start coming in. Some may come in crooked. Some may come in impacted. Most of the time, all four wisdom teeth come in just fine (although nine out of 10 people have at least one wisdom tooth that comes in slightly impacted). If your teen’s teeth come in crooked and/or impacted, your dentist may recommend that you have your teen’s wisdom teeth pulled (extracted). The dentist’s reasoning probably is this: it’s far easier to pull wisdom teeth, with a reduced risk of complications, when a person is younger (under 25). The wisdom teeth roots…

  • User Experience: Cater to the Searcher, Not the Search Engine

    1 Oct 2014 | 12:48 am
    Myth: Usability does not affect SEO. Reality: The importance of usability to SEO cannot be overstated. Many of the things we consider essential to creating a positive user experience also have a direct impact on your search ranking and visibility. It wasn’t always this way. SEO began as a method of catering solely to search engines to achieve higher ranking. Unfortunately, this left little room for user experience, as the goal was to manipulate numbers, links, and tags to attract web crawlers. The system was easily exploited, and its technical aspects were hardly intuitive enough to deliver…

    Myth: Black hat, white hat—search engines don’t care. Reality: Search engines are becoming better than ever about identifying sites that employ black hat SEO tactics. Search engine optimization started out as something of a numbers game, making it easy for spammers to play the system. This is no longer the case. Google, Bing, and other search engines exist to locate and evaluate relevant, quality information and links to users, a mission they don’t take lightly—hence the endless algorithm changes and updates. In their efforts to maintain this level of usefulness, they’re becoming…

Reality: Claiming your listing is just one of several important steps in mastering local SEO. By now you’ve undoubtedly learned to question anyone or anything that says there’s a single best way to do anything in SEO—it just isn’t true. Focusing on a single tactic is SEO poison, especially given search engines’ fondness for changing algorithms. Yes, you should claim your Google…

As far as the Internet is concerned, the objective is always more, more, more: more Facebook friends, more re-tweets, more comments, more posts. Maybe that’s why so many of our clients are surprised to learn that the “more is more” rule doesn’t necessarily apply to the number of webpages that make up your dental website—at least not in terms of search ranking.

    Myth: More content is always better, especially on your homepage. Reality: It’s possible to have too much of a good thing—content included. Yet again, a question of quantity vs. quality in dental SEO. As with links and keyword frequency, the emphasis should be on relevance and usefulness rather than bulk. Think of your website homepage as a storefront, or even as a home you’re trying to sell. Homepage content is your window display, your curb appeal. It adds visual interest and hints at what lies beyond, but it doesn’t give too much away. The goal is to enlighten, not to overwhelm.

    22 Oct 2014 | 11:53 am
    This debate will exist forever. Associates want to be paid on production. Practices want to pay associates on collections. Associates say “Not my responsibility to collect money on production” or “I don’t manage the front office staff.” Practices say “can’t pay what we don’t collect” or “What if associate over-produces in order to make more money?”It’s simple to understand and agree with either side of the argument. I have this same conversation with prospective associates and practice owners daily.Collections pay is my preference in most cases involving FFS, PPO, and…

    9 Oct 2014 | 9:00 am
    What does it take to stand out from the crowd? What CE should you take to make yourself a more marketable candidate in the dentist job market? Many factors play a role in a practice owner’s hiring decision. Matching treatment philosophies, goal alignment, communication skills, and personality compatibility all play a role. When an owner is comparing otherwise similar associate candidates, clinical skills will always be a major consideration. So how do you stack up? Our firm, ETS Dental, is in a unique position to answer that. With over 9,500 general dentist interviews logged into our…
  • Base Salary (AKA Minimum Guarantee) for Associate Dentists

    30 Sep 2014 | 8:52 am
    Over the past ten years, base salaries for General Dentists seeking associateships have become more commonplace in response to an increasingly competitive dental job market. Several factors have played into this change, including the ever-growing level of student debt and increased presence of Dental Service Organizations (DSOs) in the industry. From a practice owner’s perspective, the practice can use the guaranteed minimum to say “we have the patients and potential production available - can you produce?” As such, there is a perceived financial security with a base salary. Below are…
  • Is Your Training Program Attracting or Detracting Candidates?

    5 Sep 2014 | 6:55 am
    Every organization offers some degree of on-job training, at a minimum during the onboarding process, but the quality of a company's training program can have a direct impact on the level at which employees remain engaged and motivated. Simply put, your organization's training and development opportunities, or lack thereof, could mean the difference between employees that stay or leave. In this post-recession era where attracting and retaining candidates is critical, companies should be asking themselves, what separates their training programs from the competition?Click to enlarge.As the…

  • Tooth Extraction During Pregnancy

    Suhaas Pradhyumna
    26 Jul 2013 | 6:00 am
    Hormonal changes occur during pregnancy due to which the gums become sensitive in case of pregnant females. Gums swell up and will become inflamed in case of pregnancy and will bleed. Periodontal problems occur in this period due to plaque which is present around the teeth. Gum problems very often occur around the wisdom tooth and gums become more aggravated in case of pregnant females. Neglecting ordinary oral care because of press of other duties may increase the incidence of dental caries in pregnant females. Pregnancy is not a disease but special considerations should be made when…

    What is Root Canal Treatment?What is a Root Canal?Root canal treatment is the removal of the tooth's pulp, a small, thread-like tissue in the center of the tooth. Once the damaged, diseased or dead pulp is removed, the remaining space is cleaned, shaped and filled. This procedure seals off the root canal. Years ago, teeth with diseased or injured pulps were removed. Today, root canal treatment saves many teeth that would otherwise be lost.The most common causes of pulp damage or death are:A cracked toothA deep cavityAn injury to a tooth, such as a severe knock to the…

  • User Experience: Cater to the Searcher, Not the Search Engine

    Jill Nastasia
    1 Oct 2014 | 12:48 am
    Myth: Usability does not affect SEO. Reality: The importance of usability to SEO cannot be overstated. Many of the things we consider essential to creating a positive user experience also have a direct impact on your search ranking and visibility. It wasn’t always this way. SEO began as a method of catering solely to search engines to achieve higher ranking. Unfortunately, this left little room for user experience, as the goal was to manipulate numbers, links, and tags to attract web crawlers. The system was easily exploited, and its technical aspects were hardly intuitive enough to deliver…
  • Dental SEO Myth: Black Hat SEO, a Victimless Crime?

    Jill Nastasia
    30 Sep 2014 | 2:32 am
    Myth: Black hat, white hat—search engines don’t care. Reality: Search engines are becoming better than ever about identifying sites that employ black hat SEO tactics. Search engine optimization started out as something of a numbers game, making it easy for spammers to play the system. This is no longer the case. Google, Bing, and other search engines exist to locate and evaluate relevant, quality information and links to users, a mission they don’t take lightly—hence the endless algorithm changes and updates. In their efforts to maintain this level of usefulness, they’re becoming…
  • Dental SEO Myths: Understanding Local SEO

    Local SEO is especially important for dentists, so we’ll address a number of myths surrounding best practices: Myth: The best way to succeed with local SEO is to claim your practice’s Google listing. Reality: Claiming your listing is just one of several important steps in mastering local SEO. By now you’ve undoubtedly learned to question anyone or anything that says there’s a single best way to do anything in SEO—it just isn’t true. Focusing on a single tactic is SEO poison, especially given search engines’ fondness for changing algorithms. Yes, you should claim your Google…
  • Dental SEO Myth: More Pages = More Love

    Jill Nastasia
    26 Sep 2014 | 3:18 pm
    Myth: The more webpages per site, the better. Reality: It’s what’s on your pages that counts. As far as the Internet is concerned, the objective is always more, more, more: more Facebook friends, more re-tweets, more comments, more posts. Maybe that’s why so many of our clients are surprised to learn that the “more is more” rule doesn’t necessarily apply to the number of webpages that make up your dental website—at least not in terms of search ranking. You’ll recall our discussion of quantity vs. quality as it relates to content and links, and we can revisit it here. On one…
  • Dental SEO Myth: No Such Thing as Too Much Content

    Jill Nastasia
    25 Sep 2014 | 3:11 pm
    Myth: More content is always better, especially on your homepage. Reality: It’s possible to have too much of a good thing—content included. Yet again, a question of quantity vs. quality in dental SEO. As with links and keyword frequency, the emphasis should be on relevance and usefulness rather than bulk. Think of your website homepage as a storefront, or even as a home you’re trying to sell. Homepage content is your window display, your curb appeal. It adds visual interest and hints at what lies beyond, but it doesn’t give too much away. The goal is to enlighten, not to overwhelm.

I don’t really have anything that sets me apart.” First: Let me say to you that you have more right there at your fingertips than you realize. You are a very unique person.

  • Increase your bottom line: Analyze dental insurance reimbursements

    1 Oct 2014 | 8:00 am
    Analyzing dental insurance reimbursements may increase your bottom line: Three tactics to consider PPO insurance is often one of the largest problems in a dental practice. While operating costs are on the rise, dental insurance reimbursements have stayed stagnant. In order to keep your practice on a profitable track, you’ll need to analyze, from time to time, how much of your revenue is based on those reimbursements, and work with the insurance companies to raise them. As you likely know, working with dental insurance companies can be tricky. Getting through the red tape, especially when…

He has treated thousands of patients over his career. One day in 2013, he Googled himself, and to his dismay, only one person had left him a review on Yelp. The review was written two years ago.

  • Does your Online Reputation Precede you?

    The vast majority of consumers search online for local services (source: BIA/Kelsey). As more people turn to the Internet to select healthcare providers, a patient’s first impression of your practice is often based on your online presence. You may think that having a website is enough, but it is merely one aspect that you need to consider in this day and age. Arguably, establishing a positive reputation online is as important as anything else. Just consider that 78% of U.S. consumers’ purchasing decisions are impacted by online reviews (source: Ipsos Open Thinking Exchange). Given that,…

      “Why are my teeth sensitive to cold?” This is one of the most common conditions and complaints reported to me by patients. This is a rather ubiquitous problem shared by many people as evidenced by the plethora of dental products on the market catering to sensitive teeth, Sensodyne Toothpaste being the most readily recognized. Cold sensitivity does not necessarily mean that you have a serious dental problem looming. But while the cause may be not be serious in nature, the noxious feeling brought on by something cold can be rather startling and severe. This is because the only…

    There is a phenomenon known all too well by dentists in private practice – the predictably unpredictable dental emergency that requires immediate attention. All too frequently, the patient who calls my office with an urgent problem, had an inkling that something was amiss for quite awhile. But he or she often delayed making the call in the the hopes that said problem would dissipate given enough time. Yet, when necessity dictates immediate action (i.e. “I can’t take this pain any longer!”) and the call for help is made, yesterday is never soon enough. The patient in acute distress…

    I can’t recall how many times I have treated a dental emergency stemming from a cracked tooth brought on by an “eating mishap.” Often my patients will state in earnest that they were just eating a salad or something soft when they noticed a chunk of tooth missing or a sharp shard of enamel that has suddenly appeared and is cutting up their tongue. Well, invariably it was not the lettuce, tomato or piece of cheese that inflicted the damaging blow, but rather a more substantial food that cracked a tooth. So unless you like super crunchy croutons, crispy bacon bits or fail to adequately…

    “Some fluoride-containing products, however, have enough of the ion to be hazardous and should be handled and stored with caution.  For example, a 1.23 percent fluoride gel contains 12,300 ppm or 12.3 milligrams per gram. Thus, one ounce (28.3) grams) contains 348 milligrams, a life-threatening dose for a 11.5 kilogram or a 25 pound child.  Even the popular fluoride toothpastes may be hazardous to small children.

  • “Good Fat” May Help Fight Diabetes

    Fat has been a popular nutritional whipping boy for the better part of the past half-century. When the food pyramid was first conceived in the 1970s, there was an over-emphasis placed on carbohydrates and fat was readily demonized as the cause of all of our health troubles. After nearly 40 years, mounting evidence shows that fat, while still in moderation, is a necessary part of our energy requirements and diet. A new study released by researchers at the Salk Institute and Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center have shown that certain fats and the lipids that make up the fat are beneficial to…
