In Support of Healthy Smiles

Harvard School of Dental Medicine Gives Kids A Smile

Every day, a child in the United States goes to school, camp, or simply the playground with a chronic infection. The child may not be sneezing or sniffling, but his/her teeth certainly are. Today, however, was a day for change. At Give Kids A Smile 2018, the students and staff at Harvard School of Dental Medicine decided to take a stand in support of healthy smiles and against those cavity bugs the dental world calls caries.

You CAN Change a Life

“Children don’t have to live with dental disease.”

The American Dental Association opened their Give Kids A Smile article with this very tagline, quoting an interview with me after the October 2017 Give Kids A Smile® Leadership Institute in St. Louis, Missouri. As one of ten Give Kids A Smile Leadership Ambassadors in the 2017 cohort, I was honored to learn from the founders of Give Kids A Smile and experience the heart of dentistry alongside incredible and inspiring colleagues. In only a few days, we gathered tips for building our own programs, ideas for integrating medicine and dentistry, and a network with whom we can collaborate to reach more and more children across the nation. Most importantly, we played an active role in providing dental care for hundreds of children in need.

We all have a role in ensuring the children around us have access to healthy smiles. That role can be everything from bringing good dental care to your own home with tips from the American Dental Association’s Mouth Healthy website to volunteering at your local GKAS events. Perhaps you choose to donate dental supplies or funds to the cause, or help connect children you know to GKAS programs in your area. Maybe you prefer to read a book about dental care at your local library or preschool. As a program of the ADA Foundation, the 501c3 charitable arm of the American Dental Association, Give Kids A Smile provides opportunity for you to learn more about and get involved in Give Kids A Smile at the ADA Foundation webpage.
The opportunities to spread smiles surround us every day. With Give Kids A Smile, the impact is beyond compare.

Contact Me if you have any questions about how you can get involved in Give Kids A Smile or in spreading smiles in your community in any capacity. Collaboration is the key to success, and you are the essential ingredient!

The Ethics of Dentistry

One of the standards of dental ethics is patient self-determination. By providing patients with the opportunity for voluntary, informed consent or refusal, dentists can empower patients to take charge of their treatment choices.

After being in the dental clinic as a pre-doctoral student, my eyes opened to the possibility:

  • What if this informed consent process were made easier – for patients and providers?
  • What if the information weren’t so … dare I say, boring, and possibly even confusing?
  • What if quality of process and experience were both taken into consideration in a re-haul of this tedious routine?

So I took to the Huffington Post with a dental practice management article of a research-base. If informed consent is something that interests you, be sure to FOLLOW THIS LINK and take a look.
