Hygiene/ Dentist wars

Does anyone else think that hygienists are moving mad on social media? To continually undermine dentists as being completely unable to 'clean' teeth is surely outrageous. Completely understand that any skill, with lack of regular use, can start to become rusty. But as dentists, particularly of the younger generations, the last thing we'd ever do is undermine/ condescend to any of our colleagues. It's inherently part of our training to value other members of the team: any such disrespect rightly gets sent down the FTP pathway - but hygienists apparently have free reign?

Can anyone for the US enlighten me how these sorts of dentists still have their licence? https://www.instagram.com/reel/C667buPSYmq/ I thought that US dentistry is at the highest possible level in the world, and still someone like this can still practice, and not have their license revoked? Using bogus studies to back up their iatrogenic treatment plans and preying on uneducated people. submitted by /u/thinkagain1234 [visit reddit] [comments ..read more

Can someone help me with any advice.. Patient came in today for an urgent appointment (I’ve never seen her before). She had a surgical extraction done of the UR3 - last standing tooth and now turning her fully edentulous. Complaining of swelling and pain from the extraction site almost a month since the extraction was done. On examination, 1mm periapical swelling next to UR3, erythematous and very TTP+. She says it’s a burning sensation and is very sore to touch, however no pain at rest. My suspicion was an infected root left behind, but there are no radiographic findings of note and there ha ..read more

What exactly is the ADA doing these days?

With new schools opening up with $500K+ tuitions, PPO reimbursements staying stagnant, DSOs metastasizing even faster across the country I have to wonder if it's just gross incompetence/apathy on the part of the ADA or if they've just become so corrupted it's time to start over. I can't think of any other explanation. submitted by /u/JohnnySack45 [visit reddit] [comments ..read more

Interviewed at a clinic that heavily treats E1 - D1 lesions with Curodont (D2991) instead of doing fillings. This leans more MA as a clinic. Have not heard or used it. Wondering what real old experience has been for you all while I look up the research. Thanks. submitted by /u/meisterluv [visit reddit] [comments ..read more

Billing/coding question for radiographs

by /u/daein13threat

Let’s say you need to take a BW or PA of one area of the mouth, but the assistants end up taking several radiographs in a row to get a good one after missing the first few times. Do you only bill/code for the one good diagnostic radiograph once it’s captured, or actually bill for how many were taken? submitted by /u/daein13threat [visit reddit] [comments ..read more
