How Your Next Trip to the Dentist Will Be Very Different

The next time you go to the dentist, don’t count on being able to catch up on People magazine in the reception area. Among the many things affected by Covid-19: the doctor’s waiting room.

“The old dental appointment where you sit and read a magazine, then get called back—that’s going to shift,” says Chevy Chase orthodontist Jill Bruno. “The days of sitting in the reception area are gone. There’s no more coffee; there are no more magazines. At least for a while.”

Dental practices, like most businesses, have had to retool because of the coronavirus—not only to protect patients and staff but to reassure patients who may be wondering: Is it a risk to go to the dentist?

The changes start from the beginning of a visit. Dentists are extracting some amenities that would be touched by multiple hands (so bring your own magazine) and are limiting the number of

Why it’s still important to keep your dentist appointment

BUFFALO, N.Y. (WKBW) — There are a few changes when you walk in Westermeier Martin Dental Group in Amherst. There’s plexiglass at every counter, you are screened with questions and a temperature check, and you must wear a mask when you are not being seen by a dentist.

Doctors are wearing N95s, a face mask, and a face shield to make sure you are staying safe when you come in for your appointment.

“We already had a very high standard of care for disinfection and sterilization,” Dr. Andrew Burke, a Dentist and Oral Care Surgeon said. “I feel that we are essential and we can see our patients safely,” Burke said.

Dentist offices stayed open for emergencies during the last few months.
Starting May 31st, offices opened for routine checkups again with guidelines on how to keep patients safe.
But just recently, the World Health Organization said non-essential dental work

Academic Medicine Needs More Women Leaders

Editor’s note: The opinions expressed by the author do not necessarily reflect the opinions of the AAMC or its members.

This year, for the first time, more women than men entered medical school, an impressive advance from a few decades ago when women represented less than a third of matriculants. Yet progress in another key segment of academic medicine has been painfully slow. The number of women in C-suite positions and other high-level posts—chief medical officer, chief financial officer, department chair, and dean, for example—remains shockingly low. Given how much we need women in leadership roles, it is time to act. I urge sponsorship of women, an approach borrowed from the corporate world that can elevate a person from unknown talent to rising-star status.

The need is clear. In a 2013 Academic Medicine article, my colleagues and I wrote on the poor representation of women in leadership roles, citing AAMC

Visualizing Speech-Generated Oral Fluid Droplets with Laser Light Scattering

To the Editor:

Video

Digital Object ThumbnailLaser Light-Scattering Experiment Showing Speech-Generated Droplets. (00:42)

Aerosols and droplets generated during speech have been implicated in the person-to-person transmission of viruses,1,2 and there is current interest in understanding the mechanisms responsible for the spread of Covid-19 by these means. The act of speaking generates oral fluid droplets that vary widely in size,1 and these droplets can harbor infectious virus particles. Whereas large droplets fall quickly to the ground, small droplets can dehydrate and linger as “droplet nuclei” in the air, where they behave like an aerosol and thereby expand the spatial extent of emitted infectious particles.2 We report the results of a laser light-scattering experiment in which speech-generated droplets and their trajectories were visualized.

The output from a 532-nm green laser operating at 2.5-W optical power was transformed into a light sheet that was approximately 1 mm thick and 150 mm tall.

Is a Dentist Appointment Safe Right Now?

Going to the dentist has never been what we’d call a good time, but, amid the COVID-19 pandemic, it’s a more loaded endeavor than ever. After all, there’s no way to mask up while getting your teeth cleaned, which means you’re more vulnerable to potential coronavirus exposure than you might be in other health care scenarios. As a result, you may be questioning whether or not to make that appointment.

On August 3, the World Health Organization (WHO) supported that impulse to postpone dentist check-ups. In response to COVID-19 transmission rate increases, the United Nations agency released new guidance regarding oral health care, recommending that routine dental care—check-ups, cleaning, and other preventative services—be avoided. Essential visits like oral emergencies should continue to be scheduled.

The reasoning behind this type of caution, explains Timothy Brewer, MD, professor of medicine and epidemiology at UCLA, is that dentists, hygienists, and patients are at
