VALLEY VISIONS: Paris Children’s Dentistry: Growing a bigger smile | Special Sections

Paris Children’s Dentistry has been a fixture of the community since they opened in 2010, and they have grown tremendously in the past decade. When Dr. Shaneka Scott took over the business in 2016, it expanded rapidly.

In fact, it has grown so much that it is working on building a new facility at another location on Lamar Avenue. Business manager Mitchell Scott is one of the project leads.

“Currently, we have eight operatories. We’re moving to 14. The new facility, one side will be dedicated to children — the other side to a lot of the adult patients that we have. And so we’re expanding. We’re bringing in another pediatric dentist here to kind of work primarily. And Dr. Scott’s going to see a lot of both sides of the patients, and so we’re expanding the dentistry,” Scott said.

Ask the Dentist: Make sure your kids aren’t fooled by online DIY ‘dentistry’

DO YOU know where your nail files, toilet bleach and power drill are at the moment? Well maybe you should make sure that these items are where you believe them to be and not in the hands of your children.

Videos on TikTok have young people promoting home remedies to improve the appearance of practically all body parts and the teeth are not escaping this Alice in Wonderland sorcery.

One of the suggestions being punted on the short videos is taking a nail file to smooth down the front teeth to “even them out” or level a jaggedy edge. Do not pass go or collect £200 – this should go straight into the big bag of bad ideas. Irreversible damage is being caused by this moment of fadness.

Maybe check with your children that they are aware that this can cause long-term sensitivity and try to explain that teeth are

Dentistry for Kids | UMKC

We enjoy working with all of our young patients and are aware that they have different needs when seeing the dentist. We try not to push children so they wind up afraid of going to the dentist. We’d like their appointment to be as enjoyable and comfortable as possible, as well as for them to establish life-long relationships with our dental practice.

We also recommend that the little one’s first visit be between twenty four months and 3 years of age. At that age we will start to monitor the growth and progression of their mouth and teeth.

When New Teeth Arrive:

Your child’s first tooth erupts between ages 6-12 months and the remainder of their 20 primary or “baby” teeth typically erupt by age 3. During this time, gums may feel tender and sore, causing your child to feel irritable. To help alleviate this discomfort, we recommend that you

Dr Anne O’Neill, incoming president of the Irish Dental Association (IDA), warned that the public service dentistry is facing a resourcing crisis (PA)Picture supplied by Gordon MRM.

The public service dentistry is facing a resourcing crisis, the incoming president of the Irish Dental Association (IDA) has warned.

Dr Anne O’Neill said their resourcing levels have become a full-blown crisis.

The HSE Community Dental Service deals with vulnerable special needs patients and children. However, according to the IDA members’ survey, between 25% and 40% of its skilled staff have been assigned to testing and contact tracing for Covid-19 and have not been replaced.

Dr O’Neill warned that the needs of patients “cannot be met”.

She also said that services including the annual school assessments have fallen behind, adding that this puts children’s health at risk.

During his long career, including 28 years as dean, Dr. Arthur A. Dugoni helped University of the Pacific’s school of dentistry become one of the best in the nation.

Dugoni died Wednesday at his home in Palo Alto. He was 95. He is remembered as an energetic educator and fundraiser, whose motto was “at Pacific we grow people, and along the way they become doctors.”

The San Francisco-based school was named the Arthur A. Dugoni School of Dentistry in his honor in August 2004, while he was still dean. He became the first and only person in the United States or Canada to have a dental school named in their honor while holding the position of dean.

Oral care among children should begin from the time when they haven’t even developed the milk teeth. Dentistry for children encourages parents to provide oral care for their kids from infancy, especially when the child erupts his or her first milk tooth or as soon as they reach age 1. The American Academy of pediatric dentistry recommends that children must be taken for the first dental visit at this age.

Pediatric dentists are dental professionals with the experience and qualifications to give children the best professional dental care. The kid’s dentist near you can provide oral healthcare to your child, involving caring for the child’s teeth, gums, and other supporting tissues in the mouth. Pediatric dentistry can be your child’s best friend when the matter of oral health is concerned from their infancy until adolescence. Professionals involved in dentistry for children can help your child get the

U of T Faculty of Dentistry students, patients slowly return to campus clinics

After months of near total shutdown, students and their patients at the University of Toronto’s Faculty of Dentistry clinics are gradually returning to campus while observing a host of new COVID-19 safety protocols.

The school’s graduate specialty clinics began slowly reopening on July 6, while undergraduate Doctor of Dental Surgery (DDS) students who are transitioning from year three to year four resumed seeing a backlog of patients as of Aug. 4th. The staggered reopening has involved a number of important adjustments, including a reduction of patient capacity and the implementation of new health and safety protocols.

Susie Son, a fourth-year student who is the Dental Students’ Society president, says she and her fellow classmates are thankful they can return to clinics.

“We want to be able to train and practise as much as we can before we graduate,” she says.

So far, Son says, it’s been an “unexpected, thrilling”
