People Ask Did I Always Want to

people ask did I always want to be an orthodontist, I say no. Until my senior year in high school I was a generic student. School was pleasant, not too difficult, and the social life was okay. However, you could say that is when I started to grow up, and that is when I realized that high school was about getting ready for my future. Schoolwork became less of a chore and I started to enjoy classes, a couple more than others. For example, I found that the things I learned in biology class really excited my curiosity and made me interested in learning more.

I was also lucky enough to have two exceptional teachers who helped me see that learning was fun. One in particular showed me how to see each class as an opportunity, as a door that I needed to pass through. Since then, whenever I take…… [Read More]

The principle best-practice strategy elucidated within Louis DePaola's article entitled "Infection control in the dental office" is for practitioners to adhere to sanitary and hygiene mandates as noted within a pair of documents produced by the Centers for Disease Control. The first document is the Guide to Infection Prevention for Outpatient Settings: Minimum Expectations for Safe Care (which was published in 2011), and the companion Infection Prevention Checklist for Outpatient Settings: Minimum Expectations for Safe Care. These documents have a number of specific measures for those working in dental offices to follow to reduce the incidence of healthcare associated infections (HAI).

life I have been a go-getter. I graduated from high school at 16 because I was eager to begin my college education. Currently I am working on dual Bachelor degrees. One will be in Biochemistry and the other will be in Psychology. The same personality trait that has allowed me to graduate from high school early, pursue a dual degree program and many other accomplishments, is what will turn me into a service orientated and dedicated dentist.

One of the things I have pursued as a University of California, San Diego student, is my membership in the campus "For Los Angelitos" club.

A fully functional tooth developed for the mouse as a result of the experiment. The authors proposed the use of such technology as a model for future organ replacement therapies. "The bioengineered tooth, which was erupted and occluded, had the correct tooth structure, hardness of mineralized tissues for mastication, and response to noxious stimulations such as mechanical stress and pain in cooperation with other oral and maxillofacial tissues" (Ikedaa 2009, p. 113475).

Third Mandibular Molar Extraction Complications

Words: 6395 Length: 20 Pages Document Type: Essay Paper #: 77461076

It was noted that factors affecting the removal of third molars vary from country to country depending on the stakeholders (Esposito, 2005).

In this section, we discussed the origins of third molars, as well as the different types of impaction that can occur. The effects of the type of impaction were found to be a factor in the ease if removal and the complications that may occur. Understanding types of impactions and the affect that they can have on the potential for complications is an important step in preventing complications before and after surgery. The following section will discuss the surgical procedures for removal of mandibular impactions.

Surgical Extraction of Impacted Mandibular Third Molars

Educational Theories Guiding Educational Experience

Description of an education event experienced

I am a dentist, and I have started a course on teaching dentistry. My experience with education was never a particularly encouraging one as my teacher was always absent. When I was at school, the teachers went on strike, and that left us with no attention from them. We had to do much of the studying alone, and all required research lay squarely on our shoulders in the absence of teachers for as long as they were striking. Whenever the teachers came around school, they applied a work to rule strategy and that was extremely devastating. Lecturers were never available for any extra consultation, and we had to take our learning as individual responsibilities instead of waiting for support or guidance from lecturers. Any difficulties, which we may have faced during the study never, had a chance in the…… [Read More]

Words: 9027 Length: 35 Pages Document Type: Essay Paper #: 93499892

The understanding of TMJ anatomy as well as its function is very important to generate stable as well as healthy intercuspation. TMJ consists of condyle, disk, muscles and ligaments. It connects the lower jaw to the temporal bone in the skull in both sides and has two movements (osenstiel and Land, 2001). The TMJ along with muscles stabilization is the starting point to get the ideal maxilla-mandibular relationship in the centric relation. There is no way to register and transfer an accurate interocclusal record if patient has TMJ or muscles dysfunction. The patient with this dysfunction should be treated first before final restoration, cementation or construction. The conservative management of unstable joints and muscles via appliance therapy is the most common modality of management (Capp and Clayton, 1985).

I would like to study at your university for a variety of reasons. I am quite interested in the dental profession, and have worked in the profession for six years. I know the reputation of your university, and I feel that I could learn the dental profession better at your university than in any other school. I also bring experience and a joy of learning with me, and I feel I would fit in well with the student body, and add diversity to your institution. My grasp of languages could help me interact and help other international students, and I feel I could further my career while helping others while attending the school. Your dental school is well-known, and I would be proud to complete my degree at your institution. I hope you will see fit to admit me to your dental school and allow me to make my dreams of a dental career come true.

A bring six years of experience with me to my studies, which I feel will help me in my goals and in my ultimate career. Soon after I started school in 1994, I married into a Greek family and settled down for nine years. My husband, a successful dentist, had a big influence on my choice of dentistry as a career. I showed a lot of interest in his work, and he acknowledged I would be a very talented dentist if I chose to pursue the career. I felt utterly drowned in the profession when I began working for him as a dental assistant. However, in the six years I worked for him, I learned so much about dentistry, and it was then that I too realized I thoroughly enjoyed it and would be quite good at it. This is why I hope to continue my education and become a dentist. I love the work, and I seem to have an inclination for it.

In 1999, my husband and I decided to come to the United States. We were full of high hopes and dreams ready to materialize. We were eager to begin a new life, but there were many circumstances in the way. Within two years of my arrival, my father, aunt, and uncle died back home, and in the summer of 2003, my marriage ended in divorce. Consequently, I found myself alone in a foreign country, and wondering what to do with the rest of my life. Despite my personal tragedies, I have decided to get on with my life and make the best of living in a place with endless opportunities. Therefore, I have dedicated myself to creating a much desired new career in dentistry. I feel I have the talent and the ambition to become a successful dentist, and your school can certainly help me accomplish this important goal. I really desire to be a dentist, and I hope you will see fit to allow me to enroll in your school and complete my studies to attain my career.

Science Appealed to Me as Early as

Words: 880 Length: 3 Pages Document Type: Essay Paper #: 8206632

Science appealed to me as early as I can remember in my academic career, specifically, solving problems through experimentation. Biology, in particular, captured my interest because it seemed to combine science with the goal of providing healthcare and comfort to patients suffering from medical disease. Since then, I have learned that the other scientific disciplines contribute equally toward improving modern health care, but the biological sciences have always captured my greatest interest.

My recent volunteer duties at the (Name of nursing home) nursing home confirmed to me the profound satisfaction inherent in providing patient care. The experience of being able to improve the lives and outlook of elderly patients (some of whom suffer more from depression and loneliness than any organic disease) remains one of the most rewarding endeavors that I have ever undertaken.

The satisfaction of helping others is one element that has been missing from my professional life,…… [Read More]

He goes so far as to say that disobedience may be the thing that eventually saves the human race. His argument is that if people blindly follow the commands of the leaders of their nations, and the leaders of their nations have a reason to bomb one another, then the human race will be eradicated because those people obeyed the commands to push those bomb-sending buttons (Fromm). According to this argument, disobedience must at the very least be considered valuable and worth contemplation.

Fromm supports his claim regarding the value of disobedience with examples from two very popular myths. The first is the Hebrew myth of Adam and Eve, the first human beings to walk the earth. The story is told that Adam and Eve disobeyed a command to stay away from the fruit of one particular tree in their home, the Garden of Eden. hen they disobeyed this command,…… [Read More]

Indeed many of the "rotating staff may have never been on a transfer" and in addition most transport vehicles "are not conducive to carrying out active interventions on patients" -- a situation that can lead to serious medical complications during transfers (which often take place in late-night hours) (Ahmed, p. 503). Moreover, less than one in three NHS hospitals followed the procedure of checking the compatibility within the ambulance and it's "mounting system" prior to moving the patient (Ahmed, p. 504). All of these concerns are worth noting by U.S. healthcare professionals, lest similar situations may occur and put patients in jeopardy.

Should every American healthcare provider be required to publish performance data in an online account -- information that relates to the clinical outcomes of his services as well as a record of patient satisfaction?

Their own father had distinct memories of being freed as a slave. He became an Episcopal Bishop and made his children very cognizant of the value of education, given the advantages his schooling had given him, compared to other freed slaves. At St. Augustine's where the sisters were undergraduates Sadie even met Booker T. Washington, in another brush with history. For a woman to drive a car was extraordinary during that era but Sadie "got to be a good driver, and when Mr. Booker T. Washington would come to visit aleigh, he would climb into the passenger seat of Lemuel's car" and she would act as his chauffer (Hearth 80). "Mr. Washington tried to help his people getting them educated," says Sadie sadly, mourning the fact he is often regarded by more black radicals in an unflattering way.

Reading this book is a fascinating tour of the two sister's lives and gives a sense of their unique and distinct voices. The paths of these sister's was extraordinary -- Bessie graduated with a dentistry degree in 1919, when women had not long had the vote and Jim Crow was still in force in the South. "As a woman dentist, I faced sexual harassment -- that's what they call it today -- but to me, racism was always a bigger problem" (Hearth 10). Sadie was afraid to go to her first job interview, even in New York City, because she would be denied because of her race. Yet the sisters were still full participants in history, supporting their brother Hubert's run for Congress in 1929, seeing Paul Robeson portray Othello on stage, and meeting Cab Calloway (Hearth 213; 188; 216).

The sisters mourned the violence of the 1960s: "it seemed like all the leaders were getting shot -- Malcolm X, Martin Luther King, and Robert Kennedy. Sadie and I were so distressed about it" (Hearth 97). Even after they retired, they continued their quiet forms of advocacy and activism and engagement with the community, although Sadie admits that they do not have a phone, although she had to have one when Bessie was still practicing dentistry (Heath 12). At times their sense of decency seems old-fashioned, such as when they stress their Christian morality and defend themselves against racists, saying they made a contribution to America that cannot be denied. Hearth makes it clear that their lives need no defense, rather their brilliance and fortitude is an example to all.

Denis Herard also stated for the Edmonton Journal reporters: "We're on track to implementing the new tuition fee policy that will be in place and working for the students in the fall of 2007."

However, the new policy must be approved by the cabinet and other levels of government. Last year, premier alph Klein unveiled a tuition freeze as a "centennial gift" and promised to come up with the most "affordable" tuition policy in Canada.

Caries Beware the Wykked Worme

Words: 1764 Length: 5 Pages Document Type: Essay Paper #: 67669695

Bell (2011) reported on work at the University of Illinois School of Dentistry which led researchers to conclude that raisins, consumed either alone or added to sugared bran flakes, lowered the pH in the mouth, thus making that environment less hospitable for bacteria-causing caries. aisins thus may be an alternative hygienists can recommend to patients and parents as a food that satisfies the craving for sweetness but is a healthier choice for teeth.

There are no "wykked worms." Tooth decay is not something that just happens. Caries are both preventable and treatable. Dental hygienists have an important mission to not only provide oral care but to educate patients about nutrition and decisions under personal control that support good oral health.

Risky behaviors like smoking or drug use could increase because of these assumptions, creating greater burdens of healthcare costs and other social and medical issues. The good that these therapies lead to is thus somewhat tempered by the bad they may encourage.

Other Applications of Regenerative Therapies

Regenerative therapies do not solely consist of age-reversing and life-saving applications. An examination of some other real and imagined uses to which these therapies can be put reveals the true breadth of these therapies' power and scope in everyday life. In the field of dentistry, where artificial implants have become increasingly sophisticated and well-integrated with the natural body, "the therapeutic potential of platelets in promoting and accelerating tissue regeneration" has led to a new trajectory in oral implantology because it allows for the growth of the body's own tissue at a faster rate that incorporates more completely and more efficiently with dental implants…… [Read More]

The study concludes that, "These few observations provide a fascinating window into the way in which new dietary regimes can affect neurotransmitter synthesis and thereby influence broad-based activity patterns in the brain" (lumenberg et al. 598).

3. Conclusion

There are many theories about the way that diet affected evolutionary selection in hominids. There is little doubt that diet played a significant role and that brain size is related to a radical change of diet in the distant past. However, what scholars are also at pains to point out is that diet should be seen in conjunction with and in relation to other factors, such as social structure. As Spuhler (1959) states,

The change to a partially carnivorous diet had extremely broad implications for the social organization of early hominoids" (Diet, Evolution, and Culture). Diet and other factors should be considered in the intricate and immensely complex task of attempting…… [Read More]

It is also somewhat cumbersome and heavy, with a transport weight of about 50 pounds. Furthermore, it looks rather large and might not be appropriate for all dental offices, as space can be limited here. It should therefore be carefully positioned in such a way that the dentist at no point needs to be discomforted by his need for a tool contained in the cart. He should be able to easily reach the cart at all times. A possible solution is to ensure that either the dentist or assistant is in a position to easily reach the cart at any given time.

Banning Soda There Is No Real Argument

Banning Soda

There is no real argument in favor of soda; it adds absolutely nothing positive to anyone's daily dietary intake. In fact, it is said to contribute heavily to obesity, diabetes, heart disease tooth decay, and other serious health issues. It is argued that by banning soda many of these negative aspects will be eliminated or at least reduced and therefore reduce health care costs associated with drinking soda. ith that in mind, there have been numerous attempts to ban sodas in various venues. Some schools have banned sodas from campus, and in New York, Mayor Bloomberg tried to ban the purchasing of soda from food stamp recipients (Seifman). Some of these bans have come to fruition. Studies show, however, that the results have been less than promising in accomplishing the desired effect: reducing soda consumption. Further, the government has no business deciding what foods people can consume. hile…… [Read More]
