Dr. Meg Specializes in Oral Appliances for Families with Restless Children.

As every parent knows, when your child doesn’t sleep, you don’t sleep. Being the parents of five young kids, my husband and I understand this all too well. Last year, we began to notice that our 6-year-old son was regularly struggling to focus in school, waking up in the middle of the night, obscenely snoring, and running laps in his bed. My husband, my son, and I were all groggy from his restless behavior, and the rest of our children were suffering because of it, too. To make matters worse, we have a baby at home, who already wakes up at random hours of the night. 

But it wasn’t until I took a course through Healthy Start that I realized why this could be happening. 


I was introduced to Healthy Start by a group of dentists in the U.S. The organization offers safe oral appliances to treat the symptoms of sleep-disordered breathing in children. This includes snoring, trouble concentrating, irritable behavior, constant movement in their sleep, and various other conditions. (Sounds familiar, right?) The oral appliance persuades a child’s teeth and tongue to sit properly in their mouth, allowing for proper airflow during sleep while also encouraging proper development for a child’s impressionable mouth. This prevents further conditions from developing and can help your child avoid extensive treatments and issues with their cardiovascular health, mental well-being, and cognition. 

Oral appliances are common for teens and adults, whose mouths are nearly fully formed, but formulating these appliances for children, who are constantly developing, is a new area of dental sleep medicine. In fact, in our region, there were only four other practitioners who offered this care for children. It was shocking to find out there are so few resources for families who are kept awake each night and struggling with their children’s behavioral issues. It’s even more surprising when you consider the fact that 9 in 10 children suffer from these symptoms. 

But then again, I was one of those moms who didn’t connect these symptoms my son was showing to a larger issue. It wasn’t until I took this the course to become certified through Healthy Start that I realized the very same issues that I was becoming an expert in were symptoms that my son was displaying! As a mom, I get it. It’s hard to balance everything you have to do on top of working or any other tasks you may take on. The connection between my son’s lack of focus in school and his crazed sleeping patterns just didn’t occur to my husband and myself until I took this course. 

Now my son wears an oral appliance to bed each night, and at the time of writing this, we are only a few weeks into his program. But we’ve already seen an improvement in his mood and his sleep schedule. (As a bonus, we now get to sleep through the night, too. Well, mostly. We still have a baby at home!) 

The last thing you need as a parent is less sleep. I’m proud to offer Healthy Start oral appliances for children because I have seen the direct impact these devices can have on children and their families. As parents, we just want our children to grow up happy and healthy. And I know that begins with a Healthy Start.

Helping Your Baby Find Relief From Teething With Dentist in Ancaster


Many sleepless nights and screaming fits can result from teeth erupting from a baby’s gums, but with gels, toys, and teething rings, it can be hard to discern which option is best for relief. As a dental expert and a mom to five children, Dr. Meg has a few tips to help!


Unfortunately, numbing gels can be dangerous for your baby and do little to actually numb the pain. These gels will likely rub off before the numbing agent can go into effect, and the numbing agent can kick in after the saliva washes the gel off the gums and carries it around the lips and into the throat. This impacts a baby’s ability to swallow, which can become detrimental to their well-being.

Instead, Dr. Meg recommends the following home remedies that are sure to soothe a baby’s aching gums!

  1. She will often freeze low-sugar yogurt with Popsicle sticks poking through the bottom. Freeze the yogurt to the point where it’s solid but not too frozen, so the baby can gnaw on this homemade Popsicle and enjoy a healthy snack. You can also do this with seedless watermelon and peel-less apple slices.
  2. Find rubber, mesh, or gel-like rings or blocks, and cool these toys slightly. Again, as your baby chews on these items, they will feel cool relief. Some toys and chewers even have options for including food into the mix!
  3. Wet a washcloth with cool water, chill it in the refrigerator or freezer — be careful not to freeze it completely — and allow Baby to suck and chew on it.
  4. If all else fails, your finger can offer the pain-relief your baby needs. Just make sure your hands are clean when Baby needs relief in a pinch.


While gels may not be the solution they promise to be, other medicated creams can work wonders. Rotating the appropriate dosage of Tylenol or Advil can offer relief, while petroleum jellies or lip balms can soothe the region around a baby’s lips from drool-related rashes. Do not smear these products directly onto a baby’s lips to avoid as much ingestion as possible.

Teething is an unavoidable part of development for babies, but you can make the experience bearable for your child.   When in doubt, ask Dr. Meg for more Supermom Tips!

Life is busy. You may think there’s no way you could possibly fit a regular dental exam in between juggling your family’s schedule, completing tasks for your job, and maintaining a clean home.

Think again! In fact, your finances may require it.


Attending regular dental cleanings is the best way to prevent costly and painful conditions from developing and festering to the point of dire treatment. Skipping a dental appointment could cost you thousands of dollars, and dangerous conditions may not be caught until the problem hits crisis mode.

Consider this: The date for your yearly exam rolls around, and you think you are just too busy to attend. Eight months later, a piercing toothache forces you into the dental chair, and as the dentist peers into your mouth, you learn of a few cavities that have eaten away at your teeth. If you regularly brush your teeth, you may be shocked! But if you had attended your dental appointment eight months ago, you might have learned your teeth were showing signs of wear and tear. Your dentist could have taught you preventive methods or applied a coating of sealant for extra protection. Instead, you are shelling out hundreds of dollars for completely preventable cavities.

Still not convinced? Consider this as well: You may be paying money every paycheck for dental insurance. Why let that money go to waste and spend extra money on painful conditions that your dentist could have caught at a regular appointment? Don’t let your dental benefits go to waste.

Oral health care is as much about preventing cavities, oral cancers, missing teeth, and other painful conditions as it is about diagnosing and treating these conditions. Dental science has made significant strides in recent decades to offer patients top-of-the-line treatment options, but it’s also made detecting warning signs easier than ever.

Don’t let your busy lifestyle dictate when your oral health matters. Schedule your dental appointment today and smile brighter as you save money and your oral health with a dentist near me.

Dentist Ancaster ON

If you’re not happy with the way your smile looks in photos, it might be time to do something about it.  If you’ve noticed that your teeth have shifted, especially if you’ve had braces in the past, then they might continue to shift in the future.  As we age, it’s very common for our lower front teeth to become more and more crooked and crowded.  The more crowded your teeth are, the longer and more expensive it becomes to straighten them later.


You have options!

  1. Braces – Metal braces and wires are the traditional way of straightening your smile.  Treatment varies depending on the severity of your case, but adults can expect to spend between 8 and 18 months and $5,000 to $7,000.  Metal braces have been used for decades because they just…work!  Some patients, especially adults, find them to be annoying to keep clean because food gets trapped around the bracket and wire.  Many adults feel self-conscious about showing a smile full of metal while they are in treatment.
  2. Invisalign – Invisalign Ancaster ON is the nearly invisible, clear aligner alternative to traditional metal braces. There are no metal braces or wires glued to your teeth. Instead, we use a series of removable, clear plastic aligners that gently nudge your teeth into the proper position. While you are wearing them, they are nearly invisible. And since they are removable, you can take them out to clean them (and your teeth!). The cost and time involved is very comparable to regular braces and is actually sometimes FASTER and LESS EXPENSIVE than regular braces because our main treatment goal is simpler: To make your smile look better.


Most of our Invisalign patients end up paying less than $500 per month.

The Bottom Line:

Most adults these days choose Invisalign over regular metal braces. They are usually faster, less expensive, more comfortable, easier to maintain, and most importantly they are virtually invisible while you wear them! There is one catch though… not all situations are appropriate for Invisalign.  The technology continues to get better and better, but still, there are certain situations where regular braces will work better. The only way to find out is to ask your dentist! You’ve got nothing to lose!

Our practice offers Complimentary 3D Smile Simulations where you can preview your own virtual before and after photos. Call us today!

Ancaster ON Dentist Teaching Healthy Habits

Getting your child to eat a snack that they enjoy and is good for them can feel like an impossible feat. As the mother of five children, Dr. Meg understands this challenge. She has compiled a list of teeth-friendly snacks for the whole family, so you can enjoy the sweet sounds of happy eaters.




Lots of Moo Juice

It might be gross, but saliva is a blessing for your teeth. Your body creates saliva to continually rinse your mouth of all the gunk that gets lodged in your teeth. Foods that require more chewing stimulate this production and one of the best foods to use is cheese. In fact, cheese slices, milk, and low-sugar yogurt are some of the best snacks for your child and their growing mouth. In addition to its saliva-inducing qualities, dairy is best known for its high volume of calcium, which can create stronger teeth. But there is a caveat to eating dairy for oral health: Opt for low-sugar items to avoid tooth decay.

An Apple a Day

Apples don’t just keep the doctor away; this handy fruit also promotes proper oral health! Apples rub away the grime and plaque other food leaves behind on your teeth, but unlike other crunchy foods, apples are not just supplying you with an edible toothbrush. While they can taste sweet, apples tend to be lower in sugar than other crunchy foods, such as granola or crackers. Apples are also packed with nutrients that specifically target the health of your teeth and gums, making the apple an oral superfood.

Go Green

Raw vegetables are some of the best foods for your teeth. Much like apples and cheese, vegetables can scrub away bacteria and plaque that stick to your teeth and rot your mouth. In addition, crunching produces more of that handy saliva that scrubs your teeth naturally. Lastly, raw vegetables are packed with vitamins to support oral health. Leafy greens, like kale or Swiss chard, boost your oral health with calcium, while carrots boast vitamin A, a gum-building nutrient.

Steer clear of sugary snacks and high-citrus foods, and instead, pack your children’s lunchboxes with delicious snacks that promote their mouth’s defenses.

Most dentists spend 3/4 of their day staring at teeth. We obsess over the precise position and angles of your teeth. We eat, sleep, and breathe teeth.


We went to school for years to learn all about teeth. We’re always reading about new techniques and discoveries and research… about teeth.


And, of course, you want a dentist who takes your teeth seriously and knows what he or she is doing!


Sometimes we dentists make the mistake of thinking that YOU want to know EVERYTHING about teeth…just like we do!

Which means we love to EDUCATE. And give you lots of facts.
And technical details.

And options upon options upon options.

We forget to cut through all the confusing details and give you a CLEAR RECOMMENDATION.

good Ancaster dentist will give you all the options.

But a GREAT dentist will go one step further and strongly recommend ONE option.

And the reasons they give for recommending that option should be based on what’s important to YOU, and your priorities. And they can only know those priorities if they talked to you about them before making the recommendation.

Lots of options, without a clear recommendation based on your priorities only lead to confusion.

And many patients end up choosing something that does not fit their “smile goals.”

They pick the cheapest…or the one covered by insurance…

And then they’re back at the dentist a year later wondering why it didn’t work out!

Smart patients know that the BEST way to make the BEST decisions for their health is to find a dentist in ancaster they can TRUST. A dentist who will explain all the options, but make a clear recommendation based on YOU.

Think of it like your favourite server at your favourite restaurant. Instead of handing you a menu and saying, “Pick something,” they recommend something that they KNOW you will enjoy. And if they REALLY know you…you will!

If a server only recommended the most expensive item…or the least expensive… or the daily special…every time you went… would you trust them? No. You know they are recommending the same dish to every table they serve tonight. Their recommendations are not based on what YOU like.


A great dentist knows that you are free to make whatever choice you think is best for your health. But we also understand how confusing and overwhelming it can be.

A great dentist spends LESS time describing the technical details of each and every option… and MORE time asking questions to understand YOU

  • What do YOU want for your teeth?
  • What are YOU worried most about?
  • What are YOUR priorities?


Once your dentist understands where you are now… and where you want to go… then they can make a CLEAR RECOMMENDATION about how we can best go from HERE to THERE.

In my career, I have recommended completely different plans of action for the SAME exact situation for different patients. Because I knew that the patients all had different priorities and desires.

So beware of any dentist who:


  • Leaves you with a list of options and then makes it YOUR responsibility to choose
  • Makes “boilerplate” recommendations
  • Makes recommendations that might be great for your TOOTH…. But not as great for YOU.


Instead, do this: Find a Family dentist you trust.

How do you know you can trust him or her?

  • Do they take the time to get to know you – your worries, your values, and your priorities? Or do they just talk about teeth all the time?
  • Do they take time to make clear recommendations? Or do they leave you “dazed and confused” about which you option you should choose?


Your mouth is important. Smiling, eating, talking…most of the joys of life revolve around your mouth! Don’t trust it to someone who isn’t interested in what YOU want.

Are you open to seeing if we are a good fit to work together? If so, click here (link to contact)  to get started.

The dirty little secret I’d like to share with you today is that your insurance is not doing stuff for YOU. I get a lot of clients who tell me “Oh, my insurance doesn’t cover that because it’s cosmetic”, or “My insurance doesn’t cover this because of this”.

Your insurance doesn’t cover stuff because it’s not profitable for them. It doesn’t mean that you don’t need it. So, when your dentist recommends a crown and the crown is not covered, it doesn’t mean that it’s not needed or the insurance doesn’t feel that it’s needed, It’s that is not covered in your plan because the insurance doesn’t want to invest the money in it and it’s not profitable for them.

You need to kind of step away from that insurance mindset because the insurance is not looking out for your best interest! If you get a recommendation from your cosmetic & implant dentist and it doesn’t match up with what’s covered by your insurance plan – Do not fall into that trap! Like I said, the insurance is not there for you, they do not care about you, they’re focused on the profitability of the plan. That is a dirty little secret that I’m glad I got out there! 

I always take your budget (and your priorities, and goals, and worries) into consideration. And I can help you coordinate with your insurance company to make sure you get the coverage you are entitled to. Plus, I can help you time your treatments to make them as affordable as possible.

But don’t assume that a dentist’s recommendation is the right one for you just because your insurance covers it.

Decide what’s most important to you first. Then select at the treatment that best fits what you want. After you’ve decided that, THEN you can decide whether you can afford it or not, with or without the help of your dental insurance. (And if you CAN’T afford the “perfect” treatment plan… that’s ok. There are dozens of other options, and I can help you find the one that IS perfect… for YOU)

As a parent, you’re busy. You have to prepare lunches, get your kids ready and sent to school on time, and remember that there’s piano practice tonight and youth group tomorrow. When you get a message from our dental practice that it’s time to schedule your next dental appointment, you may think you don’t have time to squeeze one in. How could you possibly need to see the dentist again?

You may want to rethink that!




When it comes to dental appointments and the frequency they occur, every schedule should be unique. It is financially beneficial and healthy to attend regular dental appointments based on your individual needs. Your teeth and mouth’s susceptibility to tooth decay is reliant on many factors, including your genetics, diet, and oral health habits. As a result, your neighbor may only need to see the dentist twice each year, but your dentist may recommend you visit every three months.

Many families opt for one or two days out of the year when the entire family is seen for dental cleanings and care. While this is a busy mom’s dream, it could also be detrimental to your children’s oral health. Instead, we will assess the individual health risk of every member of your family and make recommendations for the frequency of cleanings each person needs.

Think about it this way: How much does your child change over the course of a year? At 1 month old, they may start registering sounds and sights, but at 1 year old, most babies are crawling or walking, gabbing away with baby sounds, and exploring their world in ways they never could before. Likewise, your child’s oral health changes rapidly. It’s imperative they see the dentist on a regular basis as established by the dentist Ancaster.

As an adult, your physical growth and development are much different than a child’s. Your individual needs vary as you age and common aging conditions and circumstances take a toll on your oral health. Once again, it’s crucial that you and your dentist establish a timeline that fits your needs and health risk.

Our team can work with you and your family to establish a timeline that fits into your schedule.

Staying on top of everything your kids need can feel like a near-impossible feat, and it’s easy to sweep a few tasks under the rug. But managing their oral hygiene is a must! Our very own Dr. Meg Ling has a few tips for preparing your kiddos for those ever-important youth dental visits.




Early Bird Gets the Great Oral Hygiene

The later your child begins regularly seeing the dentist in Ancaster, the harder it becomes to prevent onset cavities or infections. When dental professionals are first examining a 1-year-old child’s mouth, the experience is vastly different than when they first examine a 4-year-old child’s mouth, Dr. Meg explains. She recommends bringing children in for their first appointment when they are about 1 year old. The dentist can then establish a good baseline for your child’s smile, and they will be less likely to fear those biannual appointments as they get older.



The element of surprise is a tool many parents use to convince their children to do a daunting task. However, this tactic isn’t the best option for the dentist. Your child is going to be naturally curious as they age, so answer their questions, quench those anxieties, and avoid future dental distress by explaining that the dentist wants to take pictures of their teeth (X-rays), count their teeth (regular checkups), and keep their chompers clean (brushing and polishing).


Sweet, Sweet Victory

When it comes to parenting, the ultimate win is when your child is capable of doing daily tasks on their own. If they can put on their pajamas, put their toys away, and pack their backpacks for school, you’re a parenting champion! But when it comes to oral hygiene, don’t be so quick to kick them out of the nest. Dr. Meg recommends brushing your child’s teeth and monitoring oral hygiene habits until they are in junior high school. You cannot expect children under the age of 10 to thoroughly clean their teeth enough to avoid tooth decay. (Check out how messy their bedroom is if you want proof!)

Don’t fret about taking your kids to the Pediatric & Family dentist! Dr. Meg and our dental professionals can help you and your family get the smiles you all deserve!

Orange County Rapid COVID-19 Testing

 If you think you may have COVID-19, the most important thing to do is to isolate yourself from others and contact your healthcare provider about testing and care. Most people will have a mild illness (or even no illness) and can recover at home without medical care and may not need to be tested. If testing is recommended, there are many FREE resources available and your provider should direct you to a location served by your health plan. If you do not have insurance, there are also many locations available for FREE testing.

There are three kinds of tests for for COVID-19: PCR/viral tests and serology/antibody tests.

  • A PCR or molecular test tells you if you have a current infection. It is taken with a swab in the mouth, nose, or throat.
  • An antigen test is a newer COVID-19 test that tells if you have a current infection. It is taken with a nasal or throat swab.
  • An antibody (serology) test does NOT tell you if you are infected currently. It only tells you if you had a previous infection and currently is not recommended for individual use. It is done through a needle or fingerstick to get a blood sample.

For more information on the different types of tests visit HERE.

Resources on this page are for PCR/viral tests or antigen testing for COVID-19 in Orange County.




Who Should Get Tested?

People with symptoms of COVID-19 should get tested.  The following symptoms may appear 2-14 days after exposure:

  • Primary symptoms may include: fever or chills, cough, shortness of breath or difficulty breathing.
  • Other symptoms may include:  fatigue, muscle or body aches, headache, new loss of taste or smell, sore throat, congestion or runny nose, nausea or vomiting, or diarrhea.

People without symptoms (asymptomatic) who meet the following Public Health criteria:

  • Workers in congregate living settings such as skilled nursing facilities, jails, or homeless shelters.
  • Healthcare workers and first responders.
  • Individuals with close contact (15 minutes or more within 6 feet) to someone known or suspected to have COVID-19
  • Essential workers – those with contact with the public such as grocery store workers, social service providers, government workers, etc.

Clearance from Isolation and Return to Work for Persons with Confirmed COVID-19 Infection

Persons with confirmed COVID-19 infection can have isolation precautions discontinued when their illness improves by three criteria:

  • At least 10 days have passed since symptoms first appeared and
  • At least 24 hours have passed since the last fever without the use of fever-reducing medications and
  • Other symptoms have improved.

CDC no longer recommends the test-based strategy to determine when to discontinue home isolation, except for rare exceptions.

COVID-19 Testing Locations in Orange County

There are more than 50 testing locations in Orange County offering free testing to most or all eligible people, and many more through individual healthcare providers. Click here for a current list of most sites.

Rapid COVID-19 Nasal Swab Test

 Rapid COVID-19 Kit: Immunodiagnostic procedure for the detection of Coronavirus at home in 15 minutes.

Coronavirus is spreading continually across the world. Research-based companies are using different screening methods to screen suspected COVID-19 individuals. RT PCR technique is being used, which gives the results in3 -4 hours. Because of an unprecedented increase in the number of cases, the technique is not helping the cause. Most countries are relying on rapid testing technologies for COVID-19, which can provide results in just 15 minutes. And it is easy to use, portability is some of the features associated with rapid testing technologies. Rapid kits can also be deployed in hotspot areas of the country to screen asymptomatic as well as symptomatic patients to control the spread of this respiratory virus.

Rapid tests are also known as prick-based tests. These tests need not be conducted in laboratories. The presence of the antibodies pertaining to the Coronavirus can be easily detected with the help of Rapid COVID-19 Tests OC. Most of these kits are based on the IgG and IgM antibodies. The presence of these specific antibodies can help to detect whether Coronavirus infected the patient earlier or recently, the individual came in contact with COVID-19 infected individual.

Rapid COVID-19 kits are easy to use. The kits can be easily used at home by using a simple pricking needle, which is usually provided with the kit. Blood from the fingertip can be easily drawn with the help of this needle. The blood withdrawn can be put into the test cassette having the markings for the antibodies for IgG and IgM. Samples testing positive for IgG antibodies and IgM antibodies will show easily demarcated colors, which can be used to differentiate between positive and negative results. Serving as an internal control, one color line will always appear, which will indicate that the proper amount of specimen and sample has been added to the test cassette.

The results can be interpreted as follows:

IgM positive: An indication of primary COVID-19 infection.

IgG and IgM positive: An indication of secondary COVID-19 infection.

IgG positive: Indication of any past COVID-19 infection.

Negative: No infection of Coronavirus.

Invalid: Failure to detect the sample.



Rapid testing kits for home are available on the websites of top diagnostic companies. Most of the COVID-19 rapid test kits are accredited by the Indian Council of Medical Research (ICMR). These kits also can speed up the process of screening symptomatic as well as asymptomatic patients. So the most pronounced advantage of Rapid COVID-19 kits is that they can be deployed directly at the point of the care in hospitals and anywhere in the country where emergency conditions have advanced.

Rapid COVID-19 Test OC can also detect the presence of antibodies that released to the pathogenic virus. These kits can detect the presence of SARS-COV-2 qualitatively. Early detection of the Coronavirus can help the government authorities and health agencies to halt the spread of Coronavirus within communities.

Coronavirus in Orange County | Orange County Covid Testing 

 THERE’S STILL MUCH to learn about the disease that has killed thousands of people and is changing life as we know it during this pandemic. But we do know some important basics about COVID-19 and the novel coronavirus—SARS-CoV-2—that causes it.

Coronaviruses are a large family, but only seven of its members infect humans. Four types cause minor illnesses like the common cold, while other coronaviruses have triggered far more devastating impacts such as SARS, MERS, and now COVID-19. Coronaviruses can be zoonotic, meaning they jump from animals to humans. Like its relatives, COVID-19 is primarily a respiratory disease that starts in the lungs, causing pneumonia-like symptoms, but can also cast a storm across the entire body.

The virus primarily spreads through small respiratory droplets.

Like other respiratory diseases, COVID-19 OC spreads through small droplets—saliva or mucus—that an infected person expels when they cough, sneeze or talk. These droplets can travel three to six feet and remain infectious for anywhere from four to 48 hours, depending on the surface. (The virus may also spread via accidental consumption of fecal matter or aerosols, tiny particles that are mostly a concern in clinical settings.)










per minute

On surfaces, it lives longer.

You can protect yourself from catching the virus by staying six feet away from others and washing your hands with soap and water for more than 20 seconds. Disinfectants that are at least 60 percent alcohol by volume can also kill the virus on plastic and stainless steel surfaces.


72 hours


Plastic and

stainless steel




Coronaviruses get their name from their spiky structure.

Like other coronaviruses, SARS-CoV-2 is spherical with spike proteins that look a bit like a corona, or crown.




RNA, the virus genetic material

Those spikes help the virus latch onto cells where it can invade.

Once a virus enters the human body through the eyes, mouth, or nose, it looks for cells with its favorite doorways—proteins called receptors. If the virus finds a compatible receptor, it can invade and start replicating itself. For SARS-CoV-2, that receptor is found in lung cells and the gut.


To gain access to the cell the virus binds to the receptor.

Once inside, the genetic material of the virus, or RNA, is released.

The infected cell reads the RNA and begins making proteins that will keep the immune system at bay.



As the infection progresses, these new proteins form copies of the virus.

New copies of the virus are assembled and carried to the outer edges of the cell, then go on to infect other host cells.

Age seems to factor into the severity of the disease.

Currently, children with COVID-19 may be less likely to require intensive care and also have lower fatality rates than adults. The difference in severity is not yet fully understood.

There isn’t a single diagnostic symptom, but some are more common.





Dry cough




Phlegm production


Shortness of breath


Muscle and joint pain

People with chronic conditions have a higher mortality rate.

COVID-19 poses a particularly serious threat to people with underlying conditions such as cardiovascular disease, diabetes, chronic lung disease, high blood pressure, and cancer.



Cardiovascular disease




Chronic lung disease


High blood pressure




No condition

Testing is done to diagnose the presence of the virus.


Swab samples taken from the nose or mouth are tested for the virus’s genetic material. Researchers are also developing protocols for tests using blood samples.

It could take at least one year before a vaccine is ready for public use.


To develop immunity, vaccines may contain killed or weakened viruses, viral proteins, or viral genetic material. The best strategy to use against SARS-CoV-2 is yet to be determined.

COVID-19: Stages and Treatment

COVID-19 can be cured at home if necessary restrictions and guidelines are followed. It depends on the extent the disease has spread in one’s body that influences the decision of whether one should self-quarantine at home or get admitted to a hospital. If you feel that your body is showing severe corona-virus symptoms such as regular coughing episodes leading to shortness of breath, muscle aches and tiredness, it is necessary to get admitted in the hospital as doctors in the hospital will provide you necessary advanced treatment and facilities that can’t be acquired at home.

If your condition is serious, the doctors will want to run a few tests to understand the extent of the spread of the virus in the body. Initially, the possible things that doctors in the hospital will do are:


  • Level of oxygen in your blood will be checked with a clip-on finger monitor
  • Chest X-ray or CT scan
  • COVID-19 test which involves putting a cotton swab at the far-end of your throat and both sides of the nose.


If your condition seems to deteriorate, you may be provided with extra oxygen through your nostrils via tubes. The doctors keep a keen watch on your breathing pattern and monitor the spread of the virus in the lungs, to heal them, and make them capable enough to produce oxygen again on their own. Patients having severe COVID-19 infections are thoroughly monitored by doctors and are given proper anti-viral medications for the same. Doctors may also advise you to keep a check on your respiratory hygiene practices or guide you to follow special quarantine guidelines to reduce the virus and curb its spread.

Coronavirus can actually be characterized into various stages based on the severity of the symptoms and the condition of the patient. Accordingly, doctors in hospitals provide appropriate individualized treatment based on the patient’s condition. These stages are precisely characterized by the type of biological contact of the people with the virus.

The initial phase is when the person has a slight infection and shows mild symptoms like cold or flu. It is during this stage that the virus multiplies rapidly in the infected person’s body. In this early stage, doctors may suggest you undergo ‘Convalescent plasma treatment’ i.e. plasma from the already recovered patients is transferred to the patients to reduce the viral infection, thus speeding the recovery.

The next stage is when the virus has attacked the immune system thus disabling its efficient functioning. This phase also called the pulmonary phase results in the formation of blood clots and respiratory conditions like shortness of breath, intense coughing feats, etc. At the stage, doctors suggest the use of tPA (tissue plasminogen activator), which helps in the breaking of blood clots.

Next stage i.e. the hyperinflammatory phase is when increased virus in the immune-system starts causing injuries to kidney and heart. This is a risky stage and can be fatal. During this time, doctors suggest anti-inflammatory medications like corticosteroids or tocilizumab. To prevent blood clots in the blood vessels and capillaries, an anti-clotting drug ‘Herpin’ is used in all the stages.

Due to these stages, doctors believe in giving personalized treatments to the patients depending on their situation. Although these are the various treatments that the doctors suggest to prevent the spread of coronavirus in the body, there is no cure to this novel coronavirus disease yet. Doctors in the hospitals, all over the globe are trying their best to provide patients with the best possible treatment to reduce the causalities.

Coronavirus is said to be a novel virus i.e. it is a new strain of the virus that has not been identified before in any animal or human, leading to a lot of uncertainties regarding the effect of the virus on different people. It is observed that the COVID-19 affects different people differently; for some, it may start with coughing fits and fever, others may experience muscle aches and lack of taste, while some may even be asymptomatic.

A concrete explanation of why this novel virus has different effects on different people is not yet concluded, however, it is closely associated with the immune system of the person. It depends on how your immune system responds to the spread of the virus in your body. Once the virus enters your body, it starts replicating at an immense rate, that’s when your immunity power gets triggered and acts as a resistor to fight and stop the spread of the virus. The immunity power of each person’s body differs, resulting in varied behavior of Covid-19 infection among people.

The extent of the virus also depends on the body’s resistance against the unwelcomed virus. A person might get so sick that they need to be hospitalized, while some infected people may get cured just by following home-quarantine. There were many other strains of coronavirus that had affected mankind in the past, namely MERS-CoV, which caused infections in the Middle East, and SARS-CoV, which caused the 2003 SARS outbreak. The new COVID-19 spreads in the same way as the previous strains of coronavirus i.e. by attacking the human respiratory system causing similar symptoms as the common flu, however, this strain of the virus is much better adapted to humans beings causing a grave number of cases all over the globe.

People having poor health conditions or pre-existing health problems like heart disease, respiratory problems, diabetes or cancer are likely to get affected adversely and can have life-threating COVID-19 infections. Some people may get really sick while some people may not have any problem. There are various factors because of which COVID-19 infections affect people differently but researchers are still not able to find the core reason behind this unusual behavior.

Some researchers stated that the type of blood also affects the spread of the virus in the body cells. People having ‘Type O’ blood have a protective effect as compared to the people having ‘Type A’ blood. ‘Obesity’ to is one of the factors influencing the spread of coronavirus. However, these are just statements by the researchers and there is no substantial evidence to confirm the same. Various researches are carried out extensively to understand the prime factors responsible for coronavirus.

‘Age’ is also a factor that was highly affected by the intensity of the virus in the human body; it was observed that people above the age of 60 are at higher risk of getting coronavirus.

A robust immune response can fight the virus when your body asks for help against the infection caused by the virus. The immune response of the body can be high or low, the body should have the ability to develop the right amount of immunity at the right time to control the virus. An inappropriate immune response can lead to a reverse reaction that may end up attacking your body instead of the virus.

Worldwide, it is seen that around 80% of the people heal without any complications however, 1 out of every 6 people having coronavirus can become seriously ill which may lead to death. The condition of the person worsens if the virus in the body worsens, causing pneumonia or other infections that become difficult to cure.

As of now, there’s no substantial proof to back up the main reason of why COVID-19 affect people differently, however, following the basic hygiene practices, eating healthy food and keeping your body fit and fine, will help your body fight and kill the COVID-19 infections.

COVID-19 testing

COVID-19 or coronavirus has created havoc all across the world and is considered to be a global pandemic. It has resulted in a nation being shut down with drastic effects on the world economies and health systems. COVID 19 testing is done to identify the coronavirus among the individuals and is mainly conducted through Polymerase Chain Reaction Test (PCR). It helps to detect Influenza A, Influenza B, H1N1, and other antibodies produced due to the virus. Serology is another type of method used as it shows the presence of antibodies, i.e. whether the person has been infected at some point in the past, whether they show the symptoms or are asymptomatic.

The PCR test is conducted by using a swab by taking a sample of mucus from the back of the throat or a saliva sample. In the PCR test, the enzyme ‘polymerase’ is used to duplicate a segment of a patient’s DNA i.e. to create the copies. It all depends on how the DNA segment gets copied. Some viruses like SARS-COV-2 are made of RNA instead of DNA, in such a case, a process called as reverse transcription is used to convert RNA into DNA, after which the duplication process takes place. Duplication leads to the creation of copies that are then exposed to fluorescent DNA binding that shows whether there’s the presence of a virus or not. According to the scientist and researchers, this process takes approximately 4-6 hours to a day. However, this test is only valid in the first week of the disease because later the virus disappears from the throat, however, it continues to spread itself further in the body especially the lungs.

Coming to our nation, India is conducting the PCR test in two stages:

STAGE 1: testing the genetic elements commonly found in the body because of the presence of coronavirus.

STAGE 2: SARS-COV-2 specific tests that detect the presence of this virus only.

Nations affected by this virus are regularly conducting these tests with the motive to detect, cure, and minimize the presence of the virus among the citizens. Statistics show that, as of 22 April, the countries that published their testing data have on average performed a number of tests equal to only 1.2% of their population, and no country has tested samples equal to more than 13% of its population.

Testing is the key to keep track and find out the extent of the spread of the virus. Therefore, it is necessary to conduct regular tests, especially in the most affected areas to detect and avoid further cases. It helps us to identify the infected individuals and efficiently guide them to appropriate medical resources thus helping them as well as the people around. One of the important requirements is the gathering of the data. The data about the number of confirmed cases in a region is necessary to understand the growth levels of the pandemic. It is also mandatory that the government provides accurate information about the spread of the virus, detected cases, confirmed cases and deaths to the public so that they understand the gravity of the situation.

‘Social distancing’ and ‘quarantine’ are the precautions given by the government for the public to follow, however, the priority should be focussed on conducting as many tests as possible. Through a continuous chain of testing, chances are we might be able to curb this grave situation before it affects people in increased numbers or gives rise to the second wave of the pandemic. The probability that a person has had COVID-19 after a positive result from the test is less than 50%. They might show symptoms that the test must have detected or it might be because they were detected positive in the past. However, there are ample chances of people getting cured through regular precautions taken against respiratory diseases.

Our healthcare workers have been on the frontlines of the fight against COVID-19 since this crisis began. We were one of the first COVID-19 Testing Clinics in Orange County to offer testing to help slow the spread of the virus in our local communities. We’re also one of the only clinics to provide testing to OC businesses to help them reopen safely.

To date we’ve tested hundreds of workers in the area and will continue to do so thanks to the hard work and determination of our healthcare heroes. The following story is told by a member of our staff, who was determined to save the day for a local childcare facility in need of COVID-19 testing.


As soon as I knew we were going to be offering COVID-19 testing for businesses in Orange County, I was certain my challenging job was about to become even more of a challenge. 

 With that said, last Friday was one of the toughest days I can remember. 10 days prior (Wednesday, to be exact) I was spending the entire workday answering dozens of calls from large and small local businesses. From a childcare facility that needed COVID-19 tests for their 10 employees, to a bigger company with a PPO plan who wanted us to provide on-site antibody testing for their entire staff. The phone didn’t seem to stop ringing.

 The next 10 days were spent answering urgent calls from businesses who had a known COVID-19 case and needed us to test the rest of their staff on-site. Friday, however, began as a calmer day than what I had become accustomed to. With only a few calls from business owners who wanted more information from us. They asked things like “What do I do in the event one of my employees catches COVID-19?” and “What’s the difference between the molecular swab test and the antibody test?”.

 After a few of these types of inquiry calls, I was able to go home early for one of the first times in weeks. Unfortunately, this “calm day” wouldn’t last.


At 7:06 on Friday evening, I was eating dinner when I received a call from one of our clinics. They explained to me that they had just gotten off the phone with a company in need of a high volume of tests for their entire staff.

 The next half hour was spent discussing the situation with the Vice President of Production for the company. This is when I found out the company needed tests as soon as possible for 200 employees in total.

 Immediately I contacted my team to ensure we could perform on-site testing for such a high volume of employees with short notice. Once I received the OK, I called the lab to prepare them to receive the tests, and the entire operation was set in motion.


The next day, we arrived at 9:30 am to administer the tests. The line of employees was steady over the next hour, and once the 72nd individual had been swabbed, we sent the specimens off to the lab. The company was a 24-hour operation, so we had to go back from 3-6 pm in order to test the remaining shifts.

As of today, the results have been pouring in. A few positives were reported, so those employees have been contacted and told to stay home. I then made a call to the company to discuss these results and answer any questions. Here is a timeline of the reporting process:

5:30 AM: I notified the positive employees and told them to isolate themselves from their family. I also answered any questions they had and provided a link to a website that could provide even more information about COVID-19.

Some of the employees didn’t speak English, so I needed to find an online resource that was available in different languages. I also provided a link to OC testing sites that offer drive-up testing for the employees’ family members.

6:00 AM: I had a conference call with the employer and informed them that anyone who had been working closely with (or carpooling with) the positive employees should be identified and remain at home. They could be retested in 5 days.

6:35 AM: Schedule tests for the few employees that had missed the original on-site testing at one of our four clinics.

7:15 AM: After answering more questions from the employer, I texted one of our staff members — who assisted our Medical Director and me with test swabs, reporting, and more — to be prepared for another busy day.

As you can see, this situation has put my staff and me to the test, but all of the effort required was worth it. At the end of the day, we’re helping an Orange County business stay open safely and ensuring residents don’t lose their jobs.

Can Corona virus be killed?


Can Corona virus be killed

The entire world is familiar with the havoc created by the Covid-19 (coronavirus) pandemic and yet there is no concrete cure to this deadly virus. Since this virus has rapidly spread in most of the colder regions of the world, it has led people to believe that the virus may tend to disappear as the summer months arrive. Speculations are that this virus may wane with the increase in the temperature i.e. in the warm weather, however, there is no staunch data or proof to back up this assumption.

Usually, flu spreads during the cold winter months and tends to decrease its spread in the warm months. It is suggested that the coronavirus may be seasonal and there is hope that its spread may reduce as the temperature warms up. According to the research, it was found that there were various types of coronaviruses out of which three show the characteristics of having winter seasonality. However, one strain of the coronavirus found among patients having weak immunity systems has the tendency to grow and proliferate throughout all the seasons. Also, the fact that the virus has spread among various hot, humid regions of the world cannot be ignored.

Considering ‘coronavirus’ as a variable factor here, it can be easily explained in a way that, there may be an indirect proportionality between the coronavirus and temperature factor i.e. if the temperature increases it leads to the decrease of the spread of the virus. However, the temperature isn’t the only factor that affects the growth of the virus.

It is quite difficult to come to a conclusion regarding this topic. Scientists and researchers tried to compare it with the other pandemic outbreaks in the past. However, each flu pandemic has had its own character and they do not follow the same seasonal patterns, thus making it difficult to conclude whether high temperature will kill coronavirus. For e.g. Spanish flu outbreak was the most in the summer season as opposed to the outbreaks of other flu that are influenced by cold months.

Coronavirus comes under the family hierarchy of ‘enveloped viruses’. Since they are enveloped in an oily, greasy layer scientifically known as ‘lipid bilayer’, that freezes and hardens in the cool temperatures, it protects the virus thus keeping it alive for a longer time. However, chances are that this process won’t happen in places having higher temperatures, thus making it possible that the virus may diminish in hotter temperature.

Climate and temperature are of course some of the important factors because they decide the stability of the virus outside in the air once it is expelled from the person in the form of mucus i.e. while talking, sneezing or coughing. If the climate is such that it supports the stability of the exposed virus, the virus will spread rapidly. However, environmental factors are not the only factors responsible for the spread. It is the people who are the primary carriers of the virus. Thus, the temperature of the person’s body to affects the virus to some extent. People should avoid coming in contact with each other because that only is the most probable solution to stop the transmission of the disease.

However, it is a fact that there isn’t ample evidence to prove that whether warm weather really kills this coronavirus strain. As various regions of the world show dynamic humidity levels, it is difficult to create every possible weather in the lab to see its effect on the virus. Also, sometimes maybe the weather change is not the influencing factor but the strain of the virus may change due to some specific weather. Scientists have studied the real-world cases, still, there is no data to back up this statement. Most types of flu tend to stop spreading in summer; however, COVID-19 did spread in the regions of Iraq and Australia in-spite of warm weather conditions.
