Dentist Dr. Frank Roach Atlanta Explains the Field’s Most Common Area of Practice, Centered Around Preventive and Restorative Care

Press release content from Accesswire. The AP news staff was not involved in its creation.

ATLANTA, GA / ACCESSWIRE / October 9, 2020 / Focused on preventive and restorative services intended to promote optimum oral health, general dentists make up more than two-thirds of the profession. A popular dentist based in the so-called Peach State of Georgia, Dr. Frank Roach Atlanta explains more about the field.

“Often I’m asked, ‘What is general dentistry?’” says Dr. Frank Roach Atlanta, speaking from his office in the Gwinnett County city of Norcross.

According to Dr. Frank Roach Atlanta, as many as 80 percent of all qualified individuals-those using their dental degree in some fashion-in the United States are considered general dentists. “Distinct from those who are focused primarily on one area of dental practice, such as periodontics, general dentists handle an array of different services, vital to the continued oral health of their patients,” he explains.

The general dentistry field, Dr. Frank Roach Atlanta goes on to illustrate, primarily covers preventive and restorative services. “General dentists may also take care of cosmetic procedures,” adds the expert, “as well as overall health concerns, such as in the case of obstructive sleep apnea.”

For many people, the one healthcare provider that they see more than any other is their dentist. Invariably, this will be a general dentist, says Dr. Frank Roach Atlanta. “As general dentists, we are the primary providers of dental care to patients of all ages,” he points out.

Routine visits, Dr. Frank Roach Atlanta suggests, to a family dentist, are the most common occurrence in a general dentistry practice, followed by professional cleaning, and, in the presence of decay, the process of filling an affected tooth.

The majority of patients are advised, Dr. Roach says, to visit their dentist at regular intervals to keep their pearly whites in tip-top condition. “Anywhere from quarterly to once or twice per year should be the norm for a typical patient,” proposes Dr. Frank Roach Atlanta, “although a quick conversation with your chosen dentist will provide a more concrete idea.”

All general dentists, Dr. Frank Roach Atlanta reports, have successfully completed four years of education at an accredited dental school. “They will also have fulfilled the requirements of their local state licensing board,” he explains, “including testing and, in some instances, continuing education.”

Proudly practicing dentistry for more than two decades, Dr. Frank Roach is based in the Atlanta-Sandy Springs-Marietta metropolitan statistical area city of Norcross. Norcross, in turn, is located in Gwinnett County – a suburban county of Atlanta in the north-central portion of Georgia. Home to almost a million people, Gwinnett County is the second-most populous in the so-called Peach State after Fulton County.

In addition to general dentistry, Dr. Frank Roach Atlanta also focuses on dental implants, veneers, and teeth whitening, among a number of other services. In his spare time, Dr. Roach is a keen scuba diver, an avid tennis player, and is the proud guardian

ASH Releases Clinical Practice Guidelines on the Use of Preventive Anticoagulation in Patients with COVID-19

ASH Releases Clinical Practice Guidelines on the Use of Preventive Anticoagulation in Patients with COVID-19

PR Newswire

WASHINGTON, Oct. 8, 2020

Evidence-based recommendations will inform prevention of COVID-related blood clotting

WASHINGTON, Oct. 8, 2020 /PRNewswire/ — Today, ASH released new guidelines to help clinicians prevent serious blood clotting complications affecting COVID-19 patients. The recommendations suggest that clinicians should use a standard prophylactic anticoagulant dose over higher doses to prevent clotting in patients who have been hospitalized with COVID-19, including those in intensive care.

Abnormal blood clotting has been reported as a complication associated with increased risk of death in patients with COVID-19, particularly hospitalized patients. The guidelines address both critically ill hospitalized patients – people who are ill enough to require intensive care – and acutely ill hospitalized patients – people who require monitoring and treatment in the hospital but not intensive care. It is common for clinicians to administer anticoagulants to these patients upon admission to try to prevent formation of blood clots; however, there is uncertainty regarding the right dose to give. For both acutely and critically ill patients, the guidelines suggest the use of a standard prophylactic dose of anticoagulation upon admission to the hospital. The use of higher doses of anticoagulants is not recommended, as it may pose greater risk for serious bleeding that outweighs potential benefits. However, the guideline panel highlighted the importance of individualized decision-making and acknowledged that a higher dose of anticoagulants may be appropriate in patients judged to be at especially high clotting risk and low bleeding risk.

“COVID-19 is the most important public health problem of our lifetime, with more than one million deaths worldwide. Data suggest that abnormal blood clotting plays an important role in why patients die or get very sick from this disease. Thus, it is important that these patients be given anticoagulants to try to prevent clots, and data available right now suggest that standard dosing provides the best balance of benefits and risks,” said ASH President Stephanie Lee, MD, of Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center. “Equipping clinicians with evidence-based guidelines that focus on the prevention of clotting has the potential to save lives.”

In June 2020, ASH formed a multidisciplinary, internationally representative panel to develop the guidelines. The panel was chaired by Drs. Adam Cuker, of the University of Pennsylvania; Holger Schunemann, of McMaster University; and Reem Mustafa, of University of Kansas Medical Center. The panel urgently examined all available evidence, including early reports from observational studies. Development of these guidelines, including systematic evidence review, was supported by the McMaster University GRADE Centre, a world leader in guideline development. At this time, the best available evidence is very low quality, and the recommendations are framed with conditions, explanations, and a call for more research. The systematic reviews and recommendations will continue to be maintained and updated, especially as better evidence from randomized clinical trials becomes available.

Local dentist practice offering free dental work to military and veterans on Freedom Day

MADISON, Ala. – This Thursday is National Freedom Day, where businesses offer their services to military personnel and veterans for free as a “Thank you for your service.”

Divine Expressions Family Dentistry in Madison is offering free dental services for veterans all day Thursday.

They ask that you call to make an appointment in advance by calling 256-837-1200.

Doctor Laurentis Barnett says this is the fourth year they have participated, and it’s their way to say “thank you.”

“What they live with PTSD and all the things that they go through, the emotional health that they need is often forgotten. So when I go in with an exam with any patient, I don’t just work on their teeth. You know I do a health check, to make sure they’re doing ok mentally physically emotionally, and spiritually. It’s about working on the total patient so with the veterans, it’s making sure we remember their mental physical spiritual, and their dental health as well

He says in past years they’ve seen many veterans who really needed the care, and hope that those who need it will come again on Thursday.

Gentle Medicine: Be Less Interventionist And Other Changes To Routine Practice

Numerous criticisms of medical science have been articulated in recent years. Some critics argue that spurious disease categories are being invented, and existing disease categories expanded, for the aim of profit. Others say that the benefits of most new drugs are minimal and typically exaggerated by clinical research, and that the harms of these drugs are extensive and typically underestimated by clinical research. Still others point to problems with the research methods themselves, arguing that those once seen as gold standards in clinical research – randomised trials and meta-analyses – are in fact malleable and have been bent to serve the interests of industry rather than patients. Here is how the chief editor of The Lancet medical journal summarised these criticisms in 2015:

Afflicted by studies with small sample sizes, tiny effects, invalid exploratory analyses, and flagrant conflicts of interest, together with an obsession for pursuing fashionable trends of dubious importance, science has taken a turn towards darkness.

These problems arise because of a few structural features of medicine. A prominent one is the profit incentive. The pharmaceutical industry is extremely profitable, and the fantastic financial gains to be made from selling drugs create incentives to engage in some of the practices above. Another prominent feature of medicine is the hope and the expectation of patients that medicine can help them, coupled with the training of physicians to actively intervene, by screening, prescribing, referring or cutting. Another feature is the wildly complex causal basis of many diseases, which hampers the effectiveness of interventions on those diseases – taking antibiotics for a simple bacterial infection is one thing, but taking antidepressants for depression is entirely different. In my book Medical Nihilism (2018), I brought all these arguments together to conclude that the present state of medicine is indeed in disrepair.

How should medicine face these problems? I coined the term ‘gentle medicine’ to describe a number of changes that medicine could enact, with the hope that they would go some way to mitigating those problems. Some aspects of gentle medicine could involve small modifications to routine practice and present policy, while others could be more revisionary.

Let’s start with clinical practice. Physicians could be less interventionist than they currently are. Of course, many physicians and surgeons are already conservative in their therapeutic approach, and my suggestion is that such therapeutic conservatism ought to be more widespread. Similarly, the hopes and expectations of patients should be carefully managed, just as the Canadian physician William Osler (1849-1919) counselled: ‘One of the first duties of the physician is to educate the masses not to take medicine.’ Treatment should, generally, be less aggressive, and more gentle, when feasible.

Another aspect of gentle medicine is how the medical research agenda is determined. Most research resources in medicine belong to industry, and its profit motive contributes to that ‘obsession for pursuing fashionable trends of dubious importance’. It would be great if we had more experimental antibiotics in the research pipeline, and it would be

OPENING SOON: A dentist practice like no other

STANDING in the long room, you are hit with an overwhelming sense of awe as your eyes are drawn upwards to the ornate pressed metal ceilings.

It is the centrepiece of the heritage-listed Customs House that dominates the corner of Sydney and River Streets in Mackay opposite the Pioneer River.

And inside, sixth-generation local and proud new custodian, Dean Williamson, has been busily transforming the building into what will be his first dental practice.

“Everything we do has to be reversible,” Dr Williamson said.

“It’ll just be me to begin with but we’ll plumb for four surgeries.

“Down the track, it will be great to have three other dentists in as well.”

But retrofitting the 1902-built building has extra challenges besides the heritage considerations.

Dr Williamson laughed that he had not yet figured out how to change the light fittings hanging from the impressively tall ceiling space.

But he and the family were becoming pros at polishing brass, with just one of door handles taking about four hours to complete.

The building also features an original fireplace, leadlight doors, arched windows, extensive moulding and a Milners safe guarded by a six-inch thick steel door.

“I had a look, and Milners actually made some safes that went on the Titanic as well,” Dr Williamson said.

Picking up the keys to the building a fortnight ago coupled with a 100-page booklet on how to care for it, he plans to open Dean Williamson Dental with a soiree by mid to late November

“It’s daunting for sure, but I think the excitement outweighs the scariness of it,” he said.

“I just can’t believe that we’re the custodians of it.

“I know Allmans have done a lot of renovations to the place in the past and I suppose we just want to keep looking after it.”

“I kinda liked being on the other side of the chair,” Dr Williamson said with a laugh.

4 Concepts To Use To Enhance Your Dental Practice

Dentists whiten enamel by a simple process, but nonetheless not one thing you are able to do at home, not less than not in a really efficient method with the identical normal of results. 1. We already have a universal government well being care plan that is not excellent but works fairly effectively for most individuals-it’s known as Medicare. Orlando, Florida is such an attractive vacation and travel spot, it is understandable that some patients journey from a distance to this particular observe for their dental necessities.

The explanation cited was overwhelmingly the truth that private insurers intrude too much with obligatory remedies even when the affected person has satisfactory protection, and the lack of coverage or sufficient coverage to cowl necessary treatment in other patients.

Dentists aren’t going to compromise the operate or well being of your mouth for a beauty process. Whereas, there are various different ways of engaging in common healthcare, it is clear that doing so has many essential benefits to the medical and financial well-being of the residents of those nations.

This basic procedure will determine a course of action for you and your dentist with a view to get and preserve your enamel and gums healthy. With no recall system within the office, the calling and scheduling of overdue sufferers is left to the office supervisor and hygienist who work within the office.

My remaining suggestions for this product that does work are 1) use it for 14 days, just as you’d one of many expensive tooth whitener kits from the dentist; 2) do not brush up into your gum line; 3) use the 3D Whitener at evening and your regular toothpaste within the morning so you don’t neglect your gums.…
