Posted October 12, 2018 11:01:10When it comes to dentistry, you have to keep it simple and make sure that you’re not wasting your time and money, according to a new study by University of Florida dentistry professor David Hennigan.
He recently published his new book, Dental Secrets, in the American Journal of Preventive Dentistry, and recently spoke with The Globe and Mail about how it’s all about being on time, how to handle a patient’s anxiety, and what to look for when someone is stressed out.
What are the tips you have for someone who wants to do their own dental care?
Dr. Hennig says that the key is to have the time, energy and desire to get out there and do the right thing.
I’ve always been a very focused, driven person, he says.
If you look at my work, I would have been able to do my job and do my practice in a very short time if I didn’t have my work schedule.
I have to say that when I started practicing, I had to go out and get the toothbrush every day.
I’d say, ‘This is my job.’
I didn-t want to do that because I felt like I was wasting my time.
But now, I have a little bit of an edge.
I don’t know how long I can hold out, but I know I can do my work.
How do you handle a person’s anxiety when they’ve been in the hospital for so long?
I can tell a patient is feeling anxious because they’re constantly thinking about it and they’re trying to figure out how they’re going to get back to their normal life, so they’ll be in a state of shock.
They’re really upset.
I’m a little hesitant to start working with people when they’re feeling that way.
But if you know that someone’s going through that, then you can go into a situation and start working on them.
Do whatever it takes to make sure they’re OK.
What do you think of the current state of dentistry in the United States?
When did dentistry become such a big deal?
I think that dentistry is really in decline.
I think that’s the main reason, but it’s not just the dentists.
There are other things that are happening, too.
When we were going through the Great Depression, people went out and found people that they knew and that they would be good partners for them.
It was like that now.
People are just not doing that anymore.
How does this affect dentistry?
The thing that I find really interesting about dentistry and what I find so interesting about what dentistry does is that it has a big impact on society and on our health, so it’s really an indicator of our overall health.
In a lot of countries that have a lot more dentists than we do, dentistry becomes a major part of their healthcare system.
When you have more dentistry being available, you’re going out there for more dental procedures, and that’s why there are so many problems in America today.
What kind of tips do you have in your practice?
I’m not going to tell you all the things, but if you’re really anxious, don’t do it.
The first thing I would do is remind them that I have dental hygiene, I’ve been doing this for a long time, and if you have any problems, you should call me.
Then I’d get them in my office and they can come and see me.
Do they understand what I’m talking about?
They can see me and they’ll know.
Do you think that is going to make them more likely to do the dental work?
That’s going to work out very well.
I would never tell them, ‘No, I’m really scared.
They’re not going anywhere.
It’s just, you know, it’s scary.
You know, just keep the patients safe.
The other thing is, they don’t understand how to get their teeth clean.
So, they go to a dentist and they ask for a sample, and the dentist just looks at it and he says, ‘I’m not sure.’
And then they go back to the room and they say, [laughs], ‘I don’t want to take that sample.’
So they’re really confused.
What do you do?
You’re not doing your job.
I can give you tips on how to do your job and make it as safe as possible, but at the end of the day, you do the job, you clean the teeth, and you do it the right way.
How did you decide what kind of dental care you wanted to do?
When I started teaching, I thought it would be interesting to do some of these kinds of studies and to try to get people to do dental care that would make a difference in their lives
