"What we're going to be reasonable amid ignition factors that we could take that wouldn't totally dismantle out what we do. And that's why. I think some of the things that we've done Have been so successful. There are still things we do not understand about it and despite the fact that during the slowdown there were many people who never slowed down and despite the fact since we opened up again millions of people have been treated. It wasn't until really this week that any case identified to a Dental care provider was identified in. That was a dental hygienist. Who was working in a nursing home in new york. there's the cdc's still has an identified a cluster associated with adult practice at the last thing. We want this last thing i want. And that's why i tell her. Now's the time. To double down with the prevalence is high as it is the reason we can do what we do is be because we have been shown to be safe and we take the right precautions. How long this will last certainly depend on the effectiveness of the virus and Disease prevalence in the community. I certainly imagine that. The cdc and government agencies will their game as they should relative to this particular disease and other similar diseases But we a you get pushed into a corner and you fightback say. I have to take care of patients. I gotta make sure that healthcare is considered. Adele healthcare's is considered essential. And we need to take care of our patients and so that's what we've done. Nice nice nice answer. I wanna go back. I i love to question on that mccarron. I snacked in one thousand. Nine forty-five it's real current question on dental time. That goes all the way back to saint patrick's day nineteen ninety nine. We started this site. Which is why can't dentis. Unionize with the ada be different if instead of The president of the being daniel. James clemson it was jimmy hoffa and should we be a union. Should you be the president of the teamsters and the teamsters dental union are. Is it always going to be a professional american dental association. My suspicion is the ada will always be professional independent member organization There are efforts on in parts of medicine particularly residency training groups. Were residents are trying to unionize for the sake of negotiation predominantly for their own healthcare benefits and pay You know unions out to negotiate as well individual if we can get through this mccarron per ferguson. we'll have a better chance of negotiating As a group potentially The mccarron ferguson isn't so much that we can. We might be able to talk to each other. It's that we're kind of stopping the other side from talking to each other. And if this past is that will allow the department of justice in the federal trade commission to more freely. Investigate third party payers For things that they may be doing wrong all right. Well hey again. Thank you so much for your ten thousand hours of volunteerism. All the meetings you've gone to all the state means i mean i mean guy you've you've been to every state in the united states. How many times. While i would i would have been a heck of a lot more.

I mean it was nineteen seventy nine. I graduated high school. Nineteen eighty They had just found that. The two men in la that both had kept kaposi's sarcoma and it was some genius at the cdc said. Wait a minute. That is a rare disease. It should be old and disabled. They're young. they're healthy either male. And they're gay and that's that's what put the whole thing under a microscope and by the time i got to dental school. It's so funny. I'm just relived. This i can remember the old that s in kansas telling me when they come in here and tell me. I gotta wear gloves. That's why i got my twelve gauge right behind my desk. And i'm like oh god i remember i remember. There's one guy dr pelzer. He got mad. Just when dennis start sitting down i mean. He thought he's that was. That was a sign of the times. Accumbens they're sitting in a chair and they're wearing gloves and and we made a lot of changes. I mean we were prepared for for the corona virus because we dealt with aids thirty years ago. I remember. I almost cried when they took out. My eight cusp doors. I mean. I love those customers and they're just like pool. I actually got in trouble one time. I did a root canal and a person and the and the infection was really crazy and i. i didn't know what was going on. So i'm calling everybody and they go. Well wins. Last time had a few tests on your waterlines on like okay. I don't even know what to see. If you call any formation anyway. Long story short. They came out and tested. It was off the charts and they said look. You can't have city water going across the city. That's one hundred and fifteen degrees outside going. All the way to your high-speed so we'd take out the custody doors. We took out the waterlines de bottled water. The mask the gloves and all those things that impressed me about it is once you the aids pandemic went on to kill thirty six million people. We still do all that book. What i'm looking at right now is we're about two hundred and fifty days into this pandemic. What do you think this needed to do for this. Pandemic didn't do for the hiv pandemic. And what is real. That's gonna be your kids coming out of school. What are they still going to be doing. Thirty years later because of covid nineteen and then what. Ones are hype. Where you're like okay. They were panicking in the middle of the pandemic. like oral surgeon. Some we're talking about Making all the rooms negative ads pressure rooms so so succinctly what did you do for cove.

"I don't know. Hey i want to ask you another thing. I mean So we go back to nineteen hundred. Healthcare is not even one percent of the gdp. There's no specialties. Entry later Two thousand it's fourteen percents. Gdp the md's fifties specialties. We had eight or nine. Now it's twenty twenty healthcare's up to seventeen percent We've added more species. Now there's twelve these kids come out of school and i love their enthusiasm and i. I know what it's like to be a twenty four year old graduate from donald school. You're just ready to go. But man they wanna do everything they they they want to learn how to play implants and do invis- line and do silver diming floride and this and this and this this and and i don't want to be the the jerk that kills her enthusiasm but i'm telling like take implants i mean. I got my diplomat and implants. I got my fellowship with the mission suit. I mean i stopped when it got to bone grafting. I thought dude i i would have to stop for a year just to learn bone grabbed. I mean you can't learn every single thing out there. So what are you. Save you a young kid. who's brian. bushy tailed. And they just wanna do everything. It whatever walks in that emergency room. They wanna the root canal or extracting then planner turnaround and do veneers and cosmetics. How do you get a kid to channel. And say look dude. You're gonna have to pick one thing and if you just pick one thing trust me. It'll take ten years to master it. So if you're if you're gonna go through twelve specialties. You're going to have to practice at least one hundred twenty years. What do you say to that kid. I always try to encourage young people to do one thing predominant land that is treat your patients rights treat unlike family and make your decisions as if you're treating family those of us who do if the more you do the better you get the broader your experience the better you get and so you have to go slow having great mentor. Learn things correctly. Don't be afraid to know what. I call Conventional as opposed to new technology as well. I'll learn everything you can but go slow. Be patient always. Treat your patients right. And i and. I won't be honest my eighty dues when i pay my dues. All i should be paying the dues for all the things we've been talking about the big picture macroeconomics either fighting the one million attorneys and all that kind of stuff. But i'm kind of a selfish bastard at the pretty much pays my dues for a lot of selfish reasons Eighty life disability. It's cheap was one. I found out there. I mean a lot of dennis. I thought it was interesting where they weren't members of the ada but then they go by practice and they're five years out of school and then the broker says that for this bank loan we require a life and disability against the loan and then they are shopping around and they find out. It's cheaper to join the ada and by the life and disability loan. Then go out there and get alone. And that's what i'm trying to tell you. You're just a homey i mean. Look at you right now. You're driving in your car alone on the way to work. I hope that's what you're doing. I hope you're not that poor bastard on the treadmill for an hour if you are just get off the treadmill right now it's it's it's over hyped. But they're all by themselves they don't see this big country in an industry that's doing you know one hundred twenty billion dollars a year and you can't get a you can't get life insurance and disability cheaper by yourself than with the ada. I mean you just can't and and and i mean there's so many benefits other than just the altruistic things while the yeah the that has always been one of the phenomenal benefits of eddie membership. Great west is now protective. Life is the same in terms of of the benefits that are provided it is substantially less expensive. Annette's the what the eighty works to keep a.

"Well in in reality everybody understands that our costs are going up. And whoever's providing services legitimately should be able to seek reimbursement for costs. Now we also have to understand the fact that we have contracts that we'd signed with many of these third party payers in at some level we have to honor these contracts now on the other side offer two and a half months People didn't go in to see us. And so there were zero claims going in or very minimal clamps going in yet premiums were still being paid and so the third party payers were certainly collecting on their add. Were not having to pay out because care wasn't being being done. Some of the third party payers. Were were gracious in. Recognize the fact that it would be helpful for them to one help in to also help with how people perceived What they were doing Going forward to bureau on us. I don't think a specific fee for p p. p is is reasonable are fish should be adjusted accordingly for all the procedures. We do Rather than a separate fee for pd. That's gonna take negotiation. It's difficult dealing was some third party payers and that's why at the ada we are seeking and we are developing registry. We are trying to get as much data as possible on procedures. We do costs and all sorts of things so that we can negotiate with fact and that is ultimately what will on sway opinion. I find it interesting that everybody now understands some of the fragilities of business throughout the united states. Whether you're a dentist or a you run a school or you can have a restaurant. Guide forbid or a bar because the whole thing comes crashing down rather quickly and none of us have those types of reserves but disease progresses no matter what we may be able to avoid going to the bar But it's awful difficult after a while to avoid going to see your -sition or your dentist and so at some level Those who make the decisions namely legislators and officials have to understand that we have got to find a way to make our health care system works and that means on a clinical level as well as on a business level.

"He earned his dental degree from the university of southern cows school of dentistry and has metal degree from the same place. In addition to maintaining a private practice in tucson and sierra vista he's an attending oral mexico service maxwell facial surgeon on the cleft palate craniofacial team at children's clinic. I can tell you from being a dennis in arizona for since nineteen. He is an absolute legend in arizona. And now he's about he's the president he's going to be a legend for all you folks to man. Thanks so much. Dan the man clemson for coming on the show. Because i i saw this as a child i grow five sisters and a brother and when someone's life took a turn for the worse you know you knew. When they weren't happy they were gonna blame it all on a mom and dad this pandemic yet. I thought to myself. Oh my god the ada is going to be the blame for everything that happens from to z. And i want you know that. I paid my dues for next year Yesterday i do member every day. Because i don't think dennis know how much volunteers new to two things. First when people say well we know the ada closes down for two two months like do the and have the power to close down for two months. I'm pretty sure that was the centers for disease control. The world health organization the united nations. The white house the governor. And you know it's like blaming your parents. I mean you blame for things. They can't even do but my god dan. How are you holding up. And if you knew you were going to be the president during the middle of a damn pandemic would you would have taken a pass and not throwing your hat in the ring for the race will it. It certainly isn't what i thought it would be. And i am certain that those who came before me are glad they got it out of the way before this year can pass. Dr ghani and i were blessed actually by a problem that allows us to to try to do some solution making Interestingly enough. I don't think i've ever seen the apa work so hard so fast to try to solve some problems and as clearly as everybody can see the problems still come up. We still haven't figured out this pandemic and it will go on for some time. But i think some of the efforts that we've made in the past nine months have enabled us to get back to work and what we at the ada or trying to do is keep us all at work a despite the ever increasing size of these surges. i was recently on call That's put together by admiral. Rick susan achieve officer of the public That involves the cdc osha fda and all sorts of communities. And the the one thing. I wanted to tell him. Was that now. The time that the dental profession has to double down on all the things that we've learned over the past five or six months about how we can safely provide dental care and keep ourselves safe and keep our team sites and so i think it's been a good challenge you said was timothy. Rix yet tim. Rex is the admiral. He's an admiral in the public health service and he put together this very early on in the in this pandemic a colleague. He calls it the public private partnership in started out small. Now there's about sixty or seventy participants every about once every month or so to get together and just discuss what is going on in their individual society association Or area of dentistry and it has been a very good because we have to get through this together now. No one organization. No one person can resolve this. But if we know we can hear each other's problems learn from each other problems It is a phenomenal. He sends out more links than i could possibly look at it and learn over the probably the next two years and so it's been a blessing. Well i know you know it's dentistry in central. They always want me to ask the questions that nobody wants to talk about her nose. Answer to and you're a doctor. You're an md ana diaz and every. Dennis on dental town is asking every other doctor dental surgery. Are you going to take the vaccine. If i drove up to you without vaccine right now would you show me your shoulder and take it or would you sit back and wait. I would absolutely take it. And in fact in tucson them dern at trial was looking for participants in. I've all in tiered. I did not get selected but i've been notified that my hospital will be giving active staff members who are seeing patients in the hospital. Vaccines beginning next week. And i will be getting my appointment and see if i can get on out on that line now. I read in the newspaper. The same news. Everyone else reading that. When they're shipping out you have to buy something like nine hundred and ninety five at a target like nine hundred and ninety five at a time or something and they were saying that it was Should go to people doctors on the front. Our healthcare workers on the front line and nursing home. people Do you think i'm dentist will Be you know earlier than the general public as a healthcare worker. Or do you think will be in line the same line as our patients. Well right now we are in tier a one. A okay which needs one is the best. A the first of three different categories in that tier. and so we're considered healthcare workers within their that tier there will probably be some groups that are prioritized higher than outpatient. For example. If you look at each state will determine their own for example in california it will be are and inpatient services And people who are treating people with covid And then after that will come. Outpatient facilities with healthcare providers and. Dentists are either going to be considered in that group are actually the next group down. It's my personal feeling. The dentist should be considered as any other outpatient ambulatory. Healthcare providers should be in so I think we have to be a near the top bit clearly if we do not actively treat covid patients are we should Step back allow that group to be vaccinated initially and then those of us who see patients in our offices in could be exposed or potentially are expose should be pretty close to the top. Well i knew. I knew would be so smart. No this i have heard what you're you're talking about staff in tier one community clinic interior too in dentistry and tier three. That is I i have not. I have not even heard of these tears. Well the national academy of science engineering and medicine. I had a kind of a roundtable perhaps a month ago. Three or four weeks ago. Dr laughlin was on representing dentistry. And that's where they took public comment on developing these tears though they developed the cdc has Followed that as well. They send it out to the states in the states. That are gonna decide how they wanna do it. In arizona. a frontline hospital workers and healthcare workers and nursing home. Individuals are first in line in arizona. They're gonna put teachers up relatively close to the top because is governor ducey's desire to make sure that we can keep kids in school and so every every state is going to be a little bit different And the other thing. That's a huge problem with These vaccines are the logistics particularly because the two first vaccines to be released both requires significant. Refrigeration i believe. The visor vaccine requires minus seventy centigrade. And they ship in lots of one thousand and so this isn't something that individual dentist or even small clinics are going to be able to access in in tucson arizona with population in metropolitan relation about eight hundred thousand. It's only going to the two major hospitals and they will serve as the centers To distribute that at some point in time there will be vaccines. It can be refrigerated and what most physicians in most honest would have in their office in so if there becomes a time when dentists can actually provide vaccines. Hopefully we will be able to manage it with one of one of those types of vaccine because clearly none of us can go out there and buy refrigeration other meets the requirements of this particular maxine. Seventy centigrade my god. That is a.
As dentists reopened in late spring, very few got Covid-19, survey finds
"Dental Association says rates of covert 19 among dentists were low in the late spring as dental practices re opened and patients returned.

Dr. Timothy Johnston On Taking Your Customer Service To The Next Level
"A Nice Guy Community welcome back. Welcome back. It is strict on today and you are in for a treat today not just because I'm sitting in for Doug, it's also because I get to talk to Dr Timothy Johnston and award award-winning businessman lecturer published author in dental trade journals his business or dental center is the recipient of several prestigious awards is known for its excellent customer service Yod local community. He is a professional member of numerous Dental Association's personally received the Healthcare Heroes Award, and before you go running the other way because you know you hear dentist let me tell you. We're not talking just about Dennis today. Dr Johnson is also an international bestselling author of Ring Bell for service. He has some brilliant insights into succeeding in any business that depends on customer service. How are you doing today Dr Johnston I'm just fine. Thanks. Thanks for having me in absolutely absolutely, and you know we talk a lot about customer service on the Nice guys on business obviously as a dentist, it's Kinda critical isn't it? It really is and this is interview is not meant to really pertain so much the dental office because I've been doing that for years but one else I've learned from being. In terms of in terms of everything, but really what it means to be a dentist and take that experience. So to speak. I love that and again, your book. Ring Bell for service. It has some really really great insights and I'm sure lots of great ideas that you have realized over thirty years in business So the first one I wanted to touch on that you bring up in the book is, why is the customer not always right? It goes without saying that the customer is not always right. The thing that makes it stand out so much to me is when a customer client customer or anybody comes in and thinks he knows you, he thinks that his his take on the world is what's driving the whole thing. For example guy comes into my office. This is in a chapter in my book and before I can even. Kevin brought to the back. He stands up and he says I need to talk to the doctor right away. And I'm walking Brown and I hear this I step out and I'd say who I am Dr Johnston and I'll be seeing you come back this way we talk about if you like he has no, I need you to come out here. So I, walk out in the waiting room on it I stand there he goes I need to talk to you for minute about this TV. So I look in on TV is just a commercial again you the. Commercial. I don't understand it's commercial for something, and if you WANNA, come back, we could talk about not discuss it in front of these other patients here. He has not before this commercial. This was tuned to Fox News and I cannot believe you're playing Fox News. I said Ob size it today it's Fox. News. Tomorrow could be discovery channel the next day and might be you know who knows what? It's something different every day my receptionist controls it's not me. It's just whatever it is. I. Said if backup Santa Surprise that it's not the discovery channel because we we subscribe to that too and four days out of five of seems to be tuned into something dental. So but either as May. Come back. We'll talk about your needs and everything is going to go on and he says, no, you don't understand I could not possibly be a part of this in a dental office from someone who is preaching as politics out to everybody else. At this point I had to make a decision was this going to be a lifetime relationship with this guy or was it gonna be hi and bye because if I decided to keep them on to story for live longer and I was going to bend my ways to make him you know, yes, I could change the channel but if I was gonna bend over backwards to make this one person. Happy. was that going to be what my my position was going to be for the day? And you know flash of lightning ever only happens about once every five years I said well, you know what? If that's your position you can see the door right there. And he looked at me and he looked over behind him with the door said, wait a minute and might be the straight. You gotta let a perfectly good patient go because you won't change the TV station has no no, I'll just let you go but I won't let these perfectly good patients go. Ooh, good answer. I thought it was just a flash of lay. It just came to me and he turn on his heels and he huffed and puffed and slam the doors and Audi went, and there was two people sitting there in the waiting room. They were both patients of mine for years and they both looked at me at applauded me lately it likes to say good job Tim good job. So my point is you can't be everything to everybody the customer is not always right. We hear that time and time again, the customer's always right the customer's always right. But in reality I have to make my plans for ninety nine percent of the audience in for the one percent I've gotta them go and it was some of the best decisions I've ever made I've done it maybe five times in my life. I've been in practice for thirty thirty one years. It's a rare thing but we don't click with somebody really don't click and that's the times when I have to say you know what you're out of here and this is one of those times.

"It was all about protecting the public.

"Many people that I knew of I. Have a church across the street. From my office and I often I don't go to church every Sunday. But I'm a religious person and we do go there for blessings, so the priest who's also my patient noses personally so the church being closed he bearing many people dying was a problem and there I was telling my wife. You know what? We have. Been married for forty five years. And guess what. On the fourth day that we got married. We came to United States. And I started working on the next day, so we have never been together. For so many days so this. Honeymoon. And you start snuffing and she says well know I find an opportunity anyway, so of the patients I did not know how much the patients Lomas and respect the dentist. Many of the patients as soon as they walk in. They wanted to give me a hug at dinner. Tell them stop there. I need to take your temperature and they understand own doctor. is so great to see you. You know we usually think that the dentist is like Oh dentist. I have to give him money. Then you're going to sit next to me and caused me pain. That was there a typical. Scenario that you think of a dentist here now we find out that the dentists are really loved by the community and we are part of the community. And of course. The American Dental Association has really walk the walk. You know saying that we are the trusted source for the dental profession is one thing, but during the time of need cooling it. Beyond a reasonable doubt that the entire community are we have been in the news media, I would say three thousand, four hundred and twenty times in the winter as well as our in the live shows and all that. The community loves us. We are part of the community and there was something that. Many Times at the dent is you. Don't get to hear that you're so busy in your practice.

You know ninety percent of all those people are volunteers I mean everybody I know. You know. Go for the last thirty years. You can go home on Monday and watch Monday night football. Football, and then there's those volunteers go down to the Arizona Dental. Association, on Drink Water and I always say on my site. Why would you go there? Instead of the bar with me and watch Monday night football, and it's just passion, and then they do all the passion for no money, and all they get is complaints and I am very proud that I don't know what what percent of the dentists are members. Is that Oh it sixteen. Sixty four and what's for the American Medical Association? Seventy seven. What is? Probably around twenty seven percent, so the Ama is twenty seven and the. Is What? Or Yeah, so we're! We're three times. Those guys and I'm telling you that man when the shit hits the fan. That, that's not when we former circle start shooting each other. That's when we form a circle and work together and my Gosh. I just can't believe that all you guys have done. I can't believe you'd go to Kathleen I can't believe you had to go through this out. Losing Charlie that just makes me nauseous but my Gosh on that note. patients trust the dentist. I don't want to say anything negative, but you think that's where the big. Problem, I know you've got a lawsuit with Delta I know. DSO's butter is just mainly because the insurance companies and the DSO's ran by dentists, it seems like when I got out of school in eighty seven, and like the Delta Board was all dentists is seen as more of a sacred relationship, and then when they replaced all the Dennis with lawyers in not so much. Much and same thing dso's when that DSO's ran by a dentist. You See the solidarity then when it's run by a Wall Street private equity guy, you don't see the trust when when you talk about going across the street to your church, and the trust and us. Do you think do spend a Lotta time like you like my four boys? I'm so glad. You know they made me six grandchildren and you know they. I like my six grandchildren at least twelve times one of the my four boys. They're just perfect. I don't want to pass on. And have my little grandchildren go to a dentist. It was some MBA saint of to. It's two for Tuesday you buy. One County gets going. To. It's like dude. I I WANNA dentist involved with us many things. Do you think Do you agree that Delta used to be mostly dentists? And now it's gone to lawyers and DSO's started out with like Rick Workman Dentists, and now it seems like every ceo I mean a DSL. Is Baker a private equity guy? Does that a troubling trend for you. That's why I always say that. We speak with one united voice for our entire profession, and when we speak with one united voice for. Our entire profession, we are not better. Speaking united than speaking individually.

"Imagine if we closed all the dental offices anyone who had to take or had any other emergent kind of dental issues, they will be running to the hospital emergency rooms. So as soon as he heard that we have been socially responsible in. Doing. Part in the proper way. To help the society mitigate the issues with the coronal virus. At the time. He actually thanked me and he not only thanked me privately. He actually thanked the American Dental Association on public television, saying that we were the fussed professional organization who taught up fully our social responsibility, our civil responsibility, and helping the public, and we are very proud of our action if I have to do over again. you know many times? I said there's no playbook. In the actions this action, I'm very proud of our association and the entire board was unanimous in. Authorizing me to come out with detrick commendation. Good for you man good for you. Kevin you've got four hundred employees over there. How do you? How do you keep them on the same team? How do I mean my Gosh? I couldn't imagine getting four hundred Dennis in the room I mean I would rather have four hundred cats or tigers or lions. How do you Well let me flip it around. The World Health Organization declared this May so we got May June July. Three months would have dentist. Reward you with our told you, thank you. We're most your thank you coming from. You know in the beginning. When the board made the recommendation to reduce practice, it was not a very popular decision by the League. We got lots of nasty emails. Phone calls. How dare you, you know finger waving. Who Do you think you are, but I think preserving the safety was paramount importance and contributing to the medical community I mean. Chad is from Queens New York. They were the epicenter of the first surge. Images on TV of mobile morgues, rolling up to hospitals because they couldn't keep up with the number of deaths from covid was stunning and frightening So the I think my team kicked into your higher purpose, which is always to help the profession be successful, but this time it was to help the be safe and out there practices be safe, so you know. We went remote working as of March sixteenth by five hundred people lose hope their laptops worked and hoped they could figure out zoom on the four hundred five hundred people. All condos almost it was nearly five hundred people. Thousand employees unbelievable. Yes. They. They never skipped a beat. We started forming a teams. We had been training everyone in agile project management over the last three years that paid off. We started forming six major teams that met daily chats been participating in the Kobe. Response Team every day I bless him. And that that those teams are running our responses in an agile way, so stand up meetings. Booby things on turlough boards from backlog to being completed and the team's never stopped working. I mean it was twenty four seven seven days a week in the first three months, and they were energize That's what a crisis will do. Good team members, it energizes them, and then you know it got to be exhausting, so we started looking out for their wellness and telling them when to stand down when to take breaks, and that sort of thing. I think my employees produced. The Work Aba has ever produced with the highest value. So for example, we put everything related to Kobe in front of the firewall. We wanted to be accessible by everyone. and. We got criticized for that, but that was our public mission to protect the health of the public. the good news is when non-member dentist wanted access to stop. We captured their contact information, and so as a result. We've got eighteen thousand. Non Members who we now can communicate with and say you found all this value downloaded all the stuff. We helped her practice. Get organized and be safe. Would you consider you know being part of the team and we expect that to be? You know much more visible value to Dennis. Dennis used to say to what do you do for me? Well we hope to get money this time. We helped to get safe. We helped explain what an aerosol borne virus. Does we help to get P p. e.? I mean dentists could not get their hands on PP at all. And we went straight to vima and got famous. Put Denison the list, and and now we've got sufficient and not a great supply of P P, but it's sufficient for practices to be open a dentist word even on the list infamous mind and make control all of the Kobe pp all of it. So I think between our government affairs office finding again Dennis. Considered and all that legislation. Helping Dennis interpeted what it means to me. How do I apply to stop? We were solving problems when banks were being resistant to processing small business administration loans because the feds didn't give them enough. Instruction right men, a small dental practice can't compete with a billion dollar corporation that's applying for the same money. So I I think it was honestly. Jets right. This has been our finest hour and we continue I. Think to be need Dennis, but we're also getting back to business I. Mean we're not just focused on Cogan third party payer issues. We're still fighting that battle we are still legislating for licensure es in states to make it easier for Dennis to move around and not to have to sit for different licensing exams in multiple. Parts of the country were trying to help the dental students graduate..

"We'll tell you about to focus on keeping dentistry as missile essential healthcare service. That's intimately part of overall healthcare, and we hope to push that as interim policy. In the next few days but that's it's very critical role. I am just as excited as jet is. You know never waste a great crisis, and this is a great crisis overwhelmingly challenging and we're helping dentists stay well. What would I can't what I can't figure out the most watching you guys. I mean it really. It's like watching Beethoven and Mozart. do a dance what I. What I can understand is on dental town. You can't get to Dennis to agree that it's Wednesday and the reason I love my business because I'm a totalitarian dictator. I own the whole company if you don't like it. There's four doors, but you have to get all these other dentists to agree on something I mean. I couldn't even imagine how how what so will use. Go through the decision making process how? Dentists I mean it's like leading cats. How do you get a hundred and fifty thousand cats? To go the same way, how how do you? How do you do that? Are Let Chad start in. Rats Howard I I'll fall. You just said that you cannot get to. Dentist laid me and my wife. We both are dentist and I. Don't know how we are still married, but we don't agree on anything in dentistry. But one taint. That two thousand and one hundred practicing dentists in United States agree on, is that the American dental association is the trusted source for the dental profession, not just in the United States, but globally everyone looks at the Ada. The direction since the past four months. You asked me about. How did we come to this? Crisis. We had been watching the news and we had been watching the corona virus quite seat Asli since the beginning of twenty twenty. And the teens started getting. Too. Much at a faster pace was maybe around March twelfth thirteenth. Things started like it was like a snowball action and rapid changes all the Times We have an expert team of. Professionals at the American Dental Association, we have the greatest person in science and his team. We have the dental practice. People and we have the PD meteorologist at. They had been working behind the scenes all along. And when we saw that things are changing Bailey rapidly. And we saw no data action from any other agency. Somebody had to come out and give some data. Actions are some recommendations at the time, so our board got together. And we'll look at all the pros and cons and we called that the best thing. For us to do at the present time. The back in March on March. Sixteen was to at least mitigate. The flattening of the curve, the court was going higher up like this, and we needed to flatten the car by doing the social distancing and one on the way that you as a dentist can do. The social distancing by limiting the number of Haitians are traffic. In your office at the time. So that was number one thing and the number two thing that we thought of as that. We want to preserve all the PCP E. Because that was the call and kind that we want the same it for the. Victims in the hospital and other serious conditions, so we decided to. Recommend, and this was recommendation. This was not a mandate from the American. Dental Association. We do not issue any mandates weekend. Only recommend what is right fought over society, and the right thing to do was at that kind to stop doing a routine dental care. But focus on any emergency type of dentals, situation and the dentist. Joins of deciding. What is emergency at that time was crucial to us. The surgeon general actually called me on my cellphone. And he asked me was just one question is.

Don't Dread the Dentist With Dr. Ruby Gelman
"I'm Ruby Goeman. I'm uh-huh pediatric dentist in private practice in New York City. I have been practicing for nineteen years. I can't even believe that I'm saying and also mom to two amazing kids. Ari who is nine and a half and Avi Tau who is seven so I don't think you're I hope that you leave realizing saying how interesting your field is because I have so many things and in some some very selfish reasons that you're as well okay so when kids have to start going to the dentist so the the guidelines from the Academy of Pediatric Dentistry say that kids should come into the dentist by their first birthday or when they get their first tooth you know those kinds of visits that the the the first visit it where there's a lot of talking sometimes parents kind of balk at it because they think well. I'm bringing my child to the pediatrician. The my child has one tooth. What's the dentist GonNa do but the idea is. We Really WanNa make what we call a dental home for a child and then that means that where we're bringing them into our practice and we're bringing them into kind of this this world where we want them to become great dental patients since for life so the first visit is really important but it's not a there isn't a ton of hands on stuff that you guys literally like count the brush account that you know it was always the I have to say that I haven't been good at bringing them by their first birthday but maybe like by one and a half or two then they start then we start coming regularly so for me when I talk to parents and my my friends and even for myself bringing my own kids. I really didn't bring them until the age of two and the reason is that you know obviously I'm a dentist so I'm checking their mouths and I know that I know that I have that ability to to see what's going on and my friends are all bringing their kids over to me you know so. I can take a look at their teeth the kitchen and things like that but you know the guidelines are there for a reason but at the same time I think that when when when we we know our children best and we know that some kids are just not going to have it coming to the dentist before there to to a really great time. Am I feel because as much as I hate to admit it second. Even the second birthday is tough because the visits are not always you know sunshine and rainbows rainbows kids are gonNA cry. Sometimes I like to prepare parents for that and I told them it actually helps us when kids cry because they open their mouth and we can see what's going on on but the value is that we try to create this really positive environment and then they they building memories and they know that Oh the dentist isn't so bad and I'm gonNA come and I'm getting a toothbrush and I'm going to get price and then the next visit is better and it also have a really nice because they have this like seat that tilts back and then they have a TV is on the ceiling and then they can choose what they're going to watch each and then you as a really fun flavors of toothpaste too so it's you know there's a lot of bribery and sort of like if you like and it is really fun. There's like like very interesting like interactive toys everywhere. But what are you know. When should we need to start brushing their teeth when they have their first tooth correct ideally yes yes and then what should we be brushing both toothbrush and what kind of pace should we be using so again. You know there are there are guidelines is that we have. I'm GonNa tell you what the what the the American Dental Association says. I'm GonNa tell you practically what I recommend end and what really works well for me. ideally we. WanNa brush our kids teeth as soon as they come in and with a a toothbrush with whatever works for you there are there are Klotz that you can use you can use a wash cloth to wipe off the surface of the teeth you know the reason why brushing teeth so early is important is because plaque can start to build up as soon as kids get teeth and and plaque is is is kind of the enemy of dental health
Wisdom teeth removal contributes to opioid crisis, experts warn
"Pain so often times dentist prescribing opiates Sears the latest with Meg all over from CBS news Dr Chad brown but studies pain at the university of Michigan he says despite research that shows a combination of acetaminophen and ibuprofen is superior to treat pain dentists are still prescribing too many opioids to young adults for many dental care such as wisdom tooth extraction is the first opioid exposure in light of the epidemic the American dental association has released updated guidelines recommending use of alternative pain relievers and a maximum seventy supply when opioids are necessary Meg Oliver CBS news New York and this story focused on one individual young woman has had a had a little child when got the wisdom teeth removed and within fifteen months after having them removed overdosed as she was in an airport bathroom on her fourth round of rehab it's estimated upwards of fifty thousand kids each year become your chronic opioid users after just something simple like wisdom tooth extraction let's talk about this right now joining us on the disc instituted Pittsburgh news line is a doctor Tom brokering Dr Brophy is board certified in emergency medicine and addiction medicine thank Dr could it be this quick where somebody gets an opioid prescription for tooth pain that may only need to be needed for a couple of days next thing you know they're addicted can happen that fast yes absolutely and you know how fast that slippery slope that happens is very dependent on the individual and and you know are they genetically predisposed toward things like substance abuse particularly opioid abuse you know that there are other factors that play in as well including their socioeconomic status you know their educational level their their support systems and home and and so many other things but we we've seen that progress even faster than that and and sold the the the reckless prescription of opioids for every patient that having a surgical procedure done is a very dangerous matter is one particular dentist as reference in the story out of Pennsylvania doctor droll fun ari who gives the prescription a lurch the parents and the patient about the dangers of opioids and finds that just about twenty percent of his patients fill the prescription the other eighty percent choose not to how important is it for doctors to have a conversation with their parents with their patients it's of the utmost importance and and that's another part of the problem is that physicians don't have the time very much what you know when they're scheduling forty to fifty patients a day because of lower reimbursement rates it cuts into that time where you where you know you would normally spend educating patients and about that local dentist I mean I'll I'll do you even one better about a year ago does opioid education summit that we hold all the time I had the oral surgeon show up at the education of band and he approached me afterwards what would a really interesting story what he was saying was that you know they do twenty to thirty wisdom tooth extraction you know every Wednesday and that every dentist in the office and every oral surgeon in the office was just pre Korean paying twenty Percocet for every single patient that was on the schedule that day how much snow individualization note no like background checks on who had who had issues with substance abuse none of that in in when he approached the you know that this group to join this group of dancers he brought it up to the concerned and and he was basically told like you know stay in your lane you know keep your mouth shut because this is how we do things that makes our life easier you'll see what I mean well thankfully you know he had those the the way some and the insight the challenge that and and change things around to where they were no longer printing you know thirty to forty perscription that we're just getting handed out because five years ago that was a big issue a surgeon what would just say Hey just take it just in case there's a lot of question what you know was that so that they don't get bothered at two o'clock in the morning you know when your kid wakes up with with the reason being taken care of with Motrin or Tylenol or is it just you know not yet ready on the side of the surgeons or is that just a bird nests and and you know them doing things their own way well what this this Pine Ridge blended dentist was able to change within the practice was from that point forward what they did is they they had the discussion they had the education and then they were also given a prescription for nor can the really trying to drive it home like Hey what is this could turn into a problem and you need to have this life saving medication on hand in case it does and and he reported to me that less than ten percent of the patients were then pulling the opioid prescriptions I think that's a great way of going about doing this because if it's true that five million kids a year are having their teeth extracted and just fifty thousand of those kids become addicted to anything you can do to reduce those numbers more severely I'm all about doctor Tom Brophy once again he is board certified in emergency medicine and addiction medicine and he's joining us on the disc is a two tickets for news on Dr thank you very much for your time thank

I Am Not A Robot: The Story of CAPTCHA
"Year two thousand everybody was signing up for Yahoo Email addresses. This was back before g mail and Yahoo mail was great. It was free. You could check your Email anywhere. But there was this one problem and a computer science grad student at Carnegie Mellon University became fixated on this problem. His name is Louis von on the problem was that there were people who in order to send spam from Yahoo accounts. They would obtain millions of Email accounts, literally, millions not not hundreds or thousands. But millions of fake Email accounts. Literally millions of fakey mill council this spammers who were signing up for millions of spam. Accounts weren't going to the yahu male page and just signing up for these accounts. One at a time. It wasn't like they were like the real Jacob Goldstein at Yahoo dot com. Jacob Goldstein ninety nine at Yahoo dot com. Jacob the barefoot dancer at Yahoo dot com. No spammers were writing simple, computer programs little bots that just kept filling out the Yahoo Email sign up form again and again and again day. Day and night and that would generate an army of Email accounts that could be used to sell fake Viagra or steal your Bank account information. Whatever Dow didn't know what to do about this. But Louis finan had an idea. So the idea was can we make test that distinguish between humans and computers, but also a test that is graded by the computer, if you've basically ever signed up for anything on the internet. You probably know the idea that Luis von Ahn came up with a picture of distorted letters and numbers, and then a little field below that picture where you type in the characters that you see, and we actually showed it to the the guy who was the chief scientists at Yahoo. Are he loved it? And within a few weeks. It was actually, you know in the registration flow of Email accounts at Yahoo. It was it was being used there. And we were super happy that they were just using it Lewis gave his little tested name was a long ridiculous name that made a short genius acronym. The long name was completely automated public turing test to tell computers and humans. Apart a train test is a famous old idea in computer science. It's a test where you try to tell if you're chatting with a computer or with a human being if a computer can consistently make you think it's a human being that is artificial intelligence, and this sort of turing test that Louis came up with it became huge. You may even know the acronym for this test capture capture capture has very compelling have show is a good name. Yeah. Because it's like capture them or Gotcha. Or something like that. Yeah. It was it was a good name, you know capture. Maybe you do not like capture and yet the twenty year history of capture is this window into a lot into artificial intelligence into digitizing millions of books also into a little cyber.

I should say that Luis von Ahn was one of several people working on capture of like tests around the same time. So he's not the only person who came up with the idea that people develop their own captures. But Lewis and his colleagues are the ones who came up with the name and their version was the one that really took off when you bought tickets online when you signed up for your mice basic count pretty soon people were taking Louise's little test two hundred million times a day. It was protecting the world from scalpers and spammers and bots and the world, of course, responded with gratitude every time that I talked to somebody about about capture, you know, the first thing they would tell me is how annoying they are. So I started feeling fair fair. I started feeling partly responsible for these, you know, two hundred million times a day. And each time you type one of these you wasted about ten seconds of your time. So, you know, I started just thinking is there any way in which we can make good use of this these ten seconds. This was in the mid two thousand and at this moment, there is this push. Bush going on to digitize old books and all documents. And at the time it was easy enough to scan old pages old pieces of paper and put them online. But computers were still bad at turning those scanned pages into useful online documents if not searchable you cannot change the font size. You cannot. I mean, it's just a bunch of kind of somewhat crappy pictures. Yeah. So it occurred to me that you could take all of the words that the computer could not recognize and we get people to read them for us while they were typing captures on the internet up to this point Lewis has been giving capture away for free. But now he thinks people might pay to have their print archives digitized one capture at a time, and he is sitting on over half a million hours of free human Labor Day. So he starts a company called recapture, and he goes out looking for customers. And what happened was I was actually giving a talk somewhere. And I was fortunate that the at the time the guy who was the chief information officer for the New York Times was sitting in the audience. Okay. And he said, oh, you know, what we have this huge one hundred and thirty year old archive of old additions of the New York Times. So maybe we can maybe you can help us the New York Times ended up being recaptured first client now when you solve the caption next to a few random letters and numbers there. Was also a picture of a word from an old issue of the times the computers couldn't read when you typed in that word, you weren't just protecting the internet from spam? You're also helping to turn a hundred years of old newspapers into a searchable digital archive, and I have to say, I just love this sort of while you're doing one thing. You're also doing something else like deficiency of this. Like, it just it delights me, you know, it's like the old dream of writing your exercise bike to power the lights in your house or something which by the way Lewis told me when he was like eleven he had that dream, and then he like looked into it and realize oh, actually like a person, right? An exercise bike as a terrible way to generate power. As Lewis was getting recaptured going Google came out and announced they were starting to digitize every book like every single book in the world or something they sold. Lewis was doing for the times and in two thousand and nine Google bought recap show and started using it to help digitize books and then a few. Later. Google started using captured tests that showed pictures of addresses on the sides of buildings when we saw those captures we were making Google maps work better doing a little more work for Google, unpaid. So that is the end of Louise's capture story, but a little digression. He started a language company where people did online translation while they were learning the length which same like doing one thing actually doing other thing idea. This company became super popular it's called dual lingo, in fact, it got so popular that they got rid of the translation part. Now, it's just this app that millions of people use to learn languages. Okay. End of Louis end of digression. So now, it is the 'oughts and for a while capture is working the spammers are held at bay. And then someone figures out a work around. Shady businesses started showing up online and offering to break capture for anybody willing to pay. Chris Canaan is a computer scientist who started looking into these businesses around two thousand eight and it's one of. Those things like until you actually think oh, actually let's go seek this up. See how hard it is to find. You might think. Oh, this is some shady cybercriminals underground thing. But Nope, you can just Google for it, you could find a dozen of these services. Very competitively priced with all that stuff. Chris wanted to know like what's going on here? Like is it for real do these services work? So he and his colleagues decided to act like spammers. I mean, they didn't do the spam part. But they did more or less everything else. They built a bought. And this bought went around the web bumping into captures. And automatically every time the bought hit a capture test. It would send it off to one of these services that offers to solve captures for money, and what do those services do exactly they pay human beings to sit in front of computers all day long and solve one capture after another. So some person sitting in front of a computer gets a capture from Chris's bought solves the test in a couple of seconds sends it back to Chris's Bhatt, which enters the solution into a web page and boo. Yes, that is the plain vanilla version just to see like. Does this work? How long does it take? But Chris and his colleagues also had some other questions they wanted to answer. So they did something else they made up their own captured tests to send out to the solvers. Some of those tests are said what time is it and the answer to those tests told them what time zone the people salting the test lived in. They'll wanted to know what languages the solver spoke. So they made captures with weird instructions in lots of different languages Chinese Spanish Italian Tagalog Portuguese Russian, Tamil Dutch, Hindi German Malay Vietnamese Korean Greek Arabic Bengali Canada Klingon in Farsi. I'm sorry. What was the one before? I see Klingon Klingon the made up language from Star Trek maiden. Of course, not. But they did it because they wanted to just like sort of push these services like how far will these capture solvers go. There's no way they're going to be able to answer this. But the answers we saw showed us. I think we got something like a one percent accuracy rate. But it. Was on something that was so incredibly long of a question that it couldn't have been right by chance. So presumably one of these capture solvers recognized that this was Klingon either new Klingon just because at the no or looked it up online. When was actually able to successfully solve this capture. That was written in Klingon you found the greatest capture solver on earth. Yes. Based on this part of the study, not the Klingon part put the languages and the time zones. They figure out that a lot of people seem to be doing this work in Russia, China and India, and they realize this is a huge industry. People have started calling it capture farming, and it is basically human beings opening the capture gates for an army of bots and capture farms work, usually they were right, usually they were very fast. So that so the services were legit. I mean, they were potentially illegal. But they did the thing that they said they were doing correct. Yeah. One of the most interesting things about cybercrime as a marketplace. Is that it works like any other like business to business type marketplace, your reputation is really important there. You're not gonna keep your capture solving business in business, unless you're actually solving those captures and how much did it cost one US dollar per thousand captures solved so incredibly incredibly inexpensive. But this is a task that takes a typical human, you know, about fifteen twenty seconds. Yes. But God, I mean, you really. Feel for the people doing the work. Yes. So if you are spam or these workers will solve captures for you around the clock for a tenth of a penny per thousand that price is obviously like mind breaking low, but it is still not zero. And it is still enough to weed out a lot of people it weeds out people who are just trolls making spam. Accounts for fun and people who are just posting garbage comments on million garbage websites hoping to sell a few extra dollars worth of garbage products. So even with the capture farms catches still are working to block a lot of people. But what would happen if you could teach a computer to solve the captures then you wouldn't need the farms and the farmers anymore. The price would go to zero and the spammers could go wild.
Can Whitening Products Really Damage Your Teeth?
"Well, now, we have a report that ingredient in whitening strips is actually harmful to deep layer of the teeth. They say that hydrogen peroxide in it, the active ingredient in over the counter whitening chips may be harmful to the layer under the name of the teeth. They say the teeth are made up of three layers the outer Anabel, the underlying Dentin layer, and connective tissue that binds to the gum. The middle layer Denton is rich in proteins and has a lot of collagen strong. Most studies on the safety of hydrogen peroxide have focused on the Anabel. Now, the chemical is known to penetrate, the camel and just reached the Denton. Even though in miniscule amounts. According to Dr Hewlett associate dean of dean school of dentistry spokesman for the American dental association. It wasn't volved instead of explain it. Now, the senior author of the study Kelly Keenan and associate professor of chemistry Stockton university of New Jersey said in a statement that she and her colleagues sought to further characterize what your hydrogen peroxide was actually joined to the collagen. Now, I'll whiting Prenton the United States can approximate or carbide peroxide accords the American dental association. So you're tire teeth and artificial saliva. The researchers actually watched the collagen in Denton breakdown. Into smaller proteins when treated with hydrogen, peroxide. So what passed the Anabel into the Denton? They say results show that the trailer without a proxy concentration. Similar to those found of whitening strips is enough to make the original collagen protein disappear. Now, they caution against generalizing the results obtained and teeth that aren't necessarily still the body these were extracted teeth because you know, your teeth in vivo, maybe a little more resilient than in vitro in vivo means in a living body in vitro means in a lab or Petri dish.
