I am a parent and dentist whose personal and professional life has been upended by this pandemic. If you’re reading this, and haven’t gone through similar turmoil, I would like to meet you. While most of the country is trying to get a grip on what to do about the upcoming school year, those of us in the dental field are dealing with a debate of our own.
Last month, the World Health Organization (WHO) released interim guidance advising routine, non-essential oral health care be postponed because of the coronavirus and transmission risks. Less than two weeks later, the American Dental Association (ADA) released a statement saying that it “respectfully yet strongly disagrees.” The inconsistent recommendations are adding confusion in

An electric toothbrush can bring brushing to the next level for little kids. The bristles move for them, a small size can reach tricky back-of-the-mouth spots, and a timer can ensure they brush for as long as needed. That said, an electric toothbrush can require some practice for little ones. Supervising them while they brush and occasionally stepping in can be key. It can also be helpful to ask the dentist for any tricks, too, since they can spot areas where your little one may still need improvement. And of course, the best brush is the one they’ll actually use. So if you’ve gotta employ the help of Rubble and Skye, get them on board.

The findings of a new study has shown that most of the parents know or suspect when their child smokes, however, there are chances that they are in the dark if the child vapes or uses other tobacco products. Led by researchers at the University of California San Francisco, the study was published in the journal Paediatrics. The study, which tracked more than 23,000 participants aged 12 to 17 years old, found that parents or guardians were substantially less likely to report knowing or suspecting that their child had used tobacco if the child used only e-cigarettes, non-cigarette combustible products or smokeless tobacco, compared to smoking cigarettes or using multiple tobacco products.
The researchers also found that when parents set strong household rules about not using tobacco – applying to all residents – their children were less likely to start tobacco use. Just talking to kids about not smoking was

What’s a toothpaste commercial without a pristine toothbrush and a plump swish of toothpaste across the top of the bristles? Well, get ready to have your mind blown: The amount of toothpaste we should actually be using on our teeth is about a fraction of that—at least according to one dentist on TikTok.
Dr. Gao Jye Teh, a Malaysian dentist who’s studying at King’s College London, recently went viral on TikTok for sharing some oral health advice, and has become social media’s dental hygiene star in the process. In the TikTok video, he showed viewers—all 6 million of them—what the right amount of toothpaste looks like. For people over 3 years of age, it’s the size of a single pea. (FYI,this is also written on the toothpaste packaging—you know, the stuff nobody reads.)
