Dentists in the Movies: The Characters

It’s pretty hilarious to see Hollywood’s take on jobs and careers: Not all convenience store employees are quick-witted misanthropes as Clerks would have you believe. No electrical engineer is going to build an exoskeleton out of spare parts like Tony Stark in Iron Man and most computer programmers aren’t handsome super-hackers like Hugh Jackman’s character…

Black Powder = Pearly White Teeth

I’m the first to admit that I’m usually behind hot trends; I started watching Game of Thrones last March; I’ve only had a Twitter for about a month and I’m still genuinely impressed with the 2-in-1 toothpaste/mouthwash combo.

Oral Health to a 20 Something

I’m 22, fresh out of college, where does oral health and going to the dentist fit into my life? I brush my teeth at least twice a day, and even catch myself flossing from time to time. When I look in the mirror, my teeth seem white enough. I don’t see any chips or brown…

Fresh Toothbrushes, Right to Your Patients’ Front Door

How many times have you had to tell your patients it may be time to replace their toothbrushes? As a patient, I know I have been told one too many times. Sadly, there are people out there that will run that toothbrush into the ground, to where the bristles are no longer standing tall. Walking…
