Do not even consider this place. You wait for an hour each time. then they do work that is unnecessary as well as having students do the work rather than the dentist. Do not go here.

Operating as usual

[06/12/20]   We hope this message finds you and your family in good health. Our community has been through a lot over the last few months, and all of us are looking forward to resuming our normal habits and routines. While many things have changed, one thing has remained the same: our commitment to your safety.
Infection control has always been a top priority for our practice and you may have seen this during your visits to our office. Our infection control processes are made so that when you receive care, it’s both safe and comfortable. We want to tell you about the infection control procedures we follow in our practice to keep patients and staff safe.

We added an Oral Aerosol Vacuum and Air Purification System to the patient operatory which cleans the air in a highly efficient manner. The Oral Aerosol Vacuum is the perfect way to minimize the aerosols and debris so it isn’t dispelled in the operatory. Its filtration system will remove airborne pathogens including bacteria and viruses. Installing the Air Purification systems throughout the office will turn over the air up to 12 times per hour.

Our office follows infection control recommendations made by the American Dental Association (ADA), the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA). We follow the activities of these agencies so that we are up-to-date on any new rulings or guidance that may be issued. We do this to make sure that our infection control procedures are current and adhere to each agency’s recommendations.
You may see some changes when it is time for your next appointment. We made these changes to help protect our patients and staff.
For example:
• Our office will communicate with you beforehand to ask some screening questions. You’ll be asked those same questions again when you are in the office.
• We have hand sanitizer that we will ask you to use when you enter the office. You will also find some in the reception area and other places in the office for you to use as needed.
• You may see that our waiting rooms will no longer offer magazines, children’s toys and so forth, since those items are difficult to clean and disinfect.
• Appointments will be managed to allow for social distancing between patients. That might mean that you’re offered fewer options for scheduling your appointment.
• We will do our best to allow greater time between patients to reduce waiting times for you, as well as to reduce the number of patients in the reception area at any one time.
We look forward to seeing you again and are happy to answer any questions you may have about the steps we take to keep you, and every patient, safe in our practice.

We will be resuming all emergency, non-emergency and maintenance procedures starting May 4, 2020.
We are offering TELEDENTISTRY(video call ) if you wish to consult the doctor before visiting the office.
Please call the office or visit our website to schedule your appointment for office visit or Teledentistry.

We value your trust and loyalty and look forward to welcoming back to our offices.

Sincerely,

MGH is first center in New England to test drug for novel coronavirus

For those of you who have had difficulty opening the Boston Herald article below.

Another way to help get the benefits of nitric oxide--- taping!!

Use the white "paper" tape you can get at most pharmacies and tape your mouth closed, often a single piece is all that is necessary. If your nasal airway is clear you should be able to tolerate and sleep with it in place all night long. Many people have developed a bad habit of sleeping with their mouths open. This is an orthodontic trick to help a kid develop improved oral posture.

Also today. In one of Boston's largest homeless shelters, about 1/3 our 150 residents showed positive results for coronavirus testing, but are symptomless. Currently, there are no theories why this is happening. Since immune response determines in great part how one responds to the coronavirus, it's possible that many of the homeless have developed strong immune responses due to the exposure of homelessness. IMHO.

https://www.massgeneral.org/news/article/mgh-is-first-center-in-new-england-to-test-drug-for-the-novel-coronavirus

massgeneral.org The Infectious Disease Division at Massachusetts General Hospital (MGH) is the first center in New England to enroll patients in an international study of the antiviral drug, Remdesivir, which aims to treat those with the novel coronavirus (COVID-19).

Fighting the COVID - Masks

With the new requirements for wearing masks around town, here are a couple of articles about how effective they are. Time to shave!!!

Dear valued health care professionals,

There has been much recent discussion around the use of wearing face masks in public. The CDC, amongst other authorities, has recently changed their guidance concerning this practice. Wearing a face mask is common in much of Asia but has been less common in North America and Europe. Below we share some interesting peer-reviewed published data relevant to this topic.

Two studies on the topic of masks are linked below. The bottom line is people should follow the Taiwanese example and wear some type of mask in public. Taiwan has been performing remarkably well relative to many other nations during this Wuhan flu pandemic. According to Radonovich et al. (2019), a less expensive medical mask can be as effective as an N95 respirator mask. If you do not have access to either an N95 mask or medical mask there are online videos on how to make your own face mask. Remember, a mask is but one part of the equation to protect yourself, your loved ones, and your community. Social distancing, frequent and thorough hand washing, disinfecting / cleaning your surroundings, and laundering clothing and showering when returning home are all important. Let's all be safe out there!

Many of us may be experiencing tedium, frustration, anxiety, etc., as the weeks of isolation and restricted movement continues, but this too shall pass. Know that communities worldwide share in the common goal of defeating the microbial enemy and this common bond unites us all. We are each, in our own way, under a cloud of grey but a beacon of light is on the horizon.


Face Masks

Tracht et al. (2010) used mathematical modeling at the US Los Alamos National Laboratory and considered H1N1 influenza: “If N95 respirators are only 20% effective in reducing susceptibility and infectivity, only 10% of the population would have to wear them to reduce the influenza A (H1N1) cases by 20%. We can conclude from our model that, if worn properly, facemasks are an effective intervention strategy in reducing the spread of pandemic (H1N1).”

Click here to download the study:
https://public.lanl.gov/sdelvall/papers/Tracht_Masks.pdf


Radonovich et al. (2019) published a study in JAMA and reported “no significant difference between the effectiveness of N95 respirators and [less expensive] medical masks in preventing laboratory-confirmed influenza among participants routinely exposed to respiratory illnesses in the workplace.....This supports the finding that neither N95 respirators nor medical masks were more effective in preventing laboratory confirmed influenza or other viral respiratory infection or illness among participants when worn in a fashion consistent with current US clinical practice.”

Massachusetts General Hospital the first to test nitric oxide on pandemic patients

Nasal Breathing Might Help You Fight the Covid 19 Virus, Part 4

Sometimes people, including staff, think I pull things out of space. I have had several peer-reviewed articles in professional journals over the years, and try to make sure that I have references for what I write down.

Nitric oxide's role in respiration was Nobel Prize winning research in 1998. It's naturally found in nasal breathing, not oral breathing. It can play a anti-viral role as has been seen in the past, as can nasal rinsing with hypertonic solutions. Found this up to date article today!!

Nasal Irrigation and Gargling

Nasal Breathing Might Help You Fight Covid 19. Part 3.

Hypertonic saline solutions have been used for years to help open clogged nasal passageways. Likewise a review of the literature shows multiple citations where there has been shown to be a reduction in the number of the viruses and bacteria. Do your own research on PubMed.com, a literature base funded by NIH.

Below is a "recipe" given by a couple of doctors for their home "brew". If the ick factor or inertia, is a problem for you, COSTCO was selling a Neil Med package with two irrigators and a supply of saline packets for about $16.00 last week.


BaleDoneen Method - Urgent Action to Help Abate COVID-19

We are excited to share this important information that has the potential to STOP the spread of COVID-19!

This recommendation is simple. The science behind it is complex and solid.

We encourage you to review the attached PDF, follow the recommendations for yourself and family, and pass it along to your patients.

Finally, we have posted additional content / published studies that support our findings and recommendations. These are located on the BaleDoneen Member Portal under Science & Education in the COVID-19 Documents folder.

Together, we have the ability to make a difference!

Grandmother’s Remedy Can Abate COVID-19 – Dr. Bradley F. Bale and Dr. Amy L. Doneen
Many elders remember being told as youngsters to gargle with salt water to avoid getting a cold
or sore throat. Well, guess what? Grandma may not have known why this was a good idea
scientifically, but generations before her spoke of its effectiveness.

Thanks to Dr. Sandeep Ramalingam and colleagues, we now understand the reason why saline
spayed in the nose and gargled in the throat can kill the common cold virus.
We also know about the cleaning power of bleach and are using it to wipe down surfaces to kill
COVID-19. Have you ever wondered why this works? There is a chemical in the bleach which will
kill pathogens, including fungus, bacteria and virus. The chemical is called hypochlorous acid.
Obviously, it is not safe to inhale or ingest bleach. However, we do have an easy and safe
alternative! When we put salt water (hypertonic saline) in our nose and mouth guess what our
cells create? You got it, hypochlorous acid!

With this knowledge, Sandeep and colleagues conducted an experiment. They studied 60 people
who had developed a common cold. Interestingly, twenty-five (25%) of these colds were caused
by one of the common coronaviruses. Half of the people used salt-water gargles and nasal
inhalation and the other half did not. The hypertonic saline users had milder symptoms and the
duration of the cold was significantly blunted. More importantly, due to the current rapid spread
of Covid-19, saline significantly reduced the spread to others by 35%. This is likely due to much
less movement of the virus from the infected person into the environment.

A somewhat similar study was performed in 400 children 6-10 years old who developed colds
and influenza. 1/3rd of the children were treated with conventional medications while the other
2/3rd used nasal saline (sea water) spray. These children were followed for 12 weeks. The
children who used nasal saline regularly had quicker resolution of infection and less
reappearance of illness.

Want even more exciting news!? Another study in 46 adults followed for one year showed using
saline nasal rinse daily significantly reduced the incidence of upper respiratory infections.
Our country is taking bold actions to curtail the spread of COVID-19. We should be bold enough
to listen to sage advice from our ancestors. Science has shown us WHY Grandma’s remedy
works!

In light of the tremendous transmission rate of COVID-19, it is our recommendation that we
follow Grandma’s advice and use saline water gargles and nasal irrigation daily. Within two
weeks Grandmother may be smiling from heaven observing a dramatic reduction in the spread of COVID-19.

Homemade hypertonic saline solution:
Ingredients:

• 4 cups of freshly boiled water (rolling boil for 3 minutes to purify)
• 2 Tablespoons (tbs) of sea salt (or table salt) (non-iodized salt preferred but not critical)

How to make:
• Wash the hands thoroughly
• Choose a clean container/flask.
• Add the salt. Pour the freshly boiled water into the container and mix thoroughly until salt completely dissolves.
• Close the container with an airtight lid and store in the refrigerator.
• Make a fresh batch every 24 hours.

To make a smaller batch, use 1 cup of water with one tsp of salt.

How to use:
Go to website for complete instructions on how to perform nasal irrigation and gargling - http://www.elvisstudy.com/nasal-irrigation-and-gargling.html

Frequency of use:
• If you have symptoms or a confirmed case of COVID-19, repeat the usage up to every two hours during first few days as symptoms are present.
• If you are asymptomatic and do not have known COVID-19, repeat the usage every four to six hours as a preventative measure.
• At this point in time (March 22, 2020), we recommend all people in the USA do this hypertonic saline nasal irrigation and gargle.
• We recommend continuation at least until the CDC no longer considers COVID-19 a serious threat in this country.

Dr. Bradley F. Bale and Dr. Amy L. Doneen
