I must admit I have disconnected the mouth from the rest of the body! Does it seem the "newbies" coming out of school have a new understanding of this or is it actually the opposite? I have been at the same office for ten years with one young dentist and old old , getting ready to retire, and one from a woman's perspective (who just left the practice).....so I have seen many approaches through all of our associates (four in the past five years!). I am wondering if we do get a new dentist out of school if maybe there is hope ! my mother just started going to a dentist who was actually the assistant in the office and bought out the dentist !!! My mother loves her and loves her approach through healthy living as well as healthy teeth!!! I pray that this is a good sign of evolving dentistry! I have found a tiny nitch to integrate this as I am getting bogged down in the dental field, I do admit! So hoping you all have some insight and encouragement in an otherwise routine day to day for me.
