Yes, it's safe to go to the dentist

insider.com There's no evidence of coronavirus transmission in dental offices to date, and dentists are taking extra precautions during the pandemic.

Well it's been an AWESOME Friday here at Pipeline Plaza, for soooo many reasons! On this Rosh Hashanah eve, wishing everyone L'Shanah Tovah--a Happy New Year! Heaven knoooows we need a
new, good year! We're supposed to say a blessing for all we're thankful for so I decided to put mine in print.

I am super thankful for all the surprises that were bestowed upon me today; I'm super thankful that no one in my family, friend circle, or fabulous patient circle has lost their life due to COVID. Many contracted it---but they've all recovered. Double awesome!

Most of all, I'm more thankful than I can put into words that this half warrior, half wonder came into my life. I don't know what pot of gold I came across or what rainbow formed over this office without my knowing, but I cannot imagine my life without this smiling face in it. There isn't a day that goes by that at least one, if not allll, of our patients tell me how much they LOVE her. Not "like her"...love her. Her sweetness is contagious. She runs this office like a well-oiled machine and she knew not one, single thing about dentistry before she started working here. I hear stories from colleagues and old classmates about their struggles with staff since COVID hit...many are stressed to the hilt and have been left high and dry without notice. I am so fortunate to go home each night knowing every detail of running this office has been tended to, and that this smile is going to greet me each morning. For those who still haven't met her, you don't know what you're missing!

To Taryn-my-Dynamo...a million thank yous for all you do for us, thank you for enriching my life, thank you for cracking me up each and every day, and thank you for your service to our nation.

L'Shanah Tovah & L'Chaim,
Dr. Dina

Since we won't be in the office on Monday for our "Monday Fun-day" post, here is a little humor for your Friday! 😄

Another patient just decided to invest in their smile by saying "Yes!" to Dental Warranty! It's a great day to give yourself some peace of mind!

Because seriously, what if your dog eats your nightguard?! 😂🐶

Happy Monday-Funday! 👑

Too awesome not to post..even though one or two pics you've seen before! This dapper dude is several months into sporting new front teeth via implants and crowns. The tissue that he has around these teeth is amazing, incredible, and perfect! Thanks to the wizardry of Dr. Jean-Claude Kharmouche. Keeping tissue on the front teeth, especially the pink "V-shaped" papilla between each set of teeth, is a huge feat in dentistry. H.U.G.E. Looks easy but is one of the hardest things to accomplish. And how 'bout those amazing, lifelike crowns courtesy of SvenTech Dental Lab?! I'd say we freaking nailed it and this guy is one happy camper!

This thoughtful note sure made my week!

As we all know, Dr. Dina is a perfectionist. Having a perfectionist as your dentist is obviously a huge score on your part! You know that she does amazing work and won’t let you leave here with anything less than that. However, she can’t protect your teeth from those crazy mishaps in life--like chipping your crown while you’re playing catch with your kid or biting down too hard on an olive pit. Every time we need new dental work the first thing that runs through our heads is “Oh boy, are my benefits going to cover this?” (It’s okay, you can admit it!) Well, it doesn’t have to be that way. You can now protect your dental work such as implants, crowns, restorations, nightguards, and more, from those unforeseen circumstances! How… you ask? We have partnered with an amazing company called Dental Warranty and together we can offer a 6-year warranty protection to our patients. Benefit providers can be tricky with their pesky 5+-year frequency limitations, waiting periods, and missing tooth clauses. Instead of paying for a new crown (or other dental work) out of pocket if something unforeseen happens, we will cover the cost up to the original fee! Our partnership with Dental Warranty will provide you with the peace of mind you deserve after investing in your oral health and smile. Do you travel a lot or plan on moving? Your warranty follows you nationwide! How cool is that?! Give us a call today to see if you can add a Dental Warranty to your recent dental work. 😃

[06/24/20]   Another awesome email to end our day!

"Hello!
They're doing great - thank you!!! I was going to send you a note this AM anyway - thank you SO MUCH for being so great with them and their different personalities! Your patience, kindness, and "magic" made it a painless experience for them and less traumatic than it may have been. They enjoyed multiple popsicles when we got home and the tooth fairy was pretty good to them, too.

And THANK YOU for letting me be with them! I wasn't sure if I'd be allowed in and was very grateful to have been able to hold their hands and reassure them.

You ARE the best, Dr. D!! We love you!!!

Love, Lori

Such a sweet note to receive...

Pretty much sums it up!

My dynamo and I are ready, wrapped,and opened for business! Check out the photo for proof. You can't tell, but we're smiling beneath our Ghostbuster uniforms and ready to fight off the germs! We had a successful, though exhausting, week last week. We are uber-thankful to all the patients we saw who went along with the new protocols and procedures without a complaint and with full understanding and empathy. It means a lot!
Taryn was like a little Roomba last week...whirling and whipping around the office to ensure every task was accomplished in a timely fashion. She was answering calls, making calls, taking temps, performing pre-screens, doing the 2nd disinfection of each operatory, disinfecting counters and pens, presenting our new Dental Warranty to patients, and, and, and....! She was amazing! She has been thrown into the fire due to COVID and has had to learn some important things on the 'fly'. But, true to her dynamo status, she has done a fabulous job. I can't wait for all my patients to meet her.
We still have over 60 patients to reschedule and catch up with, and still required to prioritize appointments based on the aerosols that are produced, but rest assured our goal is to be back up to speed by mid-summer. Due to the new protocols, it is impossible to see the same number of patients each day as we did pre-pandemic, so please bear with us. We hope everyone is staying healthy but getting out and enjoying the sunshine and warmer weather.
Hope to see y'all soon!
Dr. Dina and Taryn-the-Dynamo

Welllll...the bell rang today and "school's" back in session! It was a hectic day trying to get used to our 'new normal' while staying on time and performing to the standards we have always delivered. I was beyond touched to receive this gift today from a special lady...it was wrapped beautifully to boot. More importantly, the sentiment on the card made my heart so full!
Since I'm still reeling from losing our Jamie, it's so nice to know someone else appreciates the type of relationships I try to develop with my patients! I fear the new COVID protocols will no longer allow these close relationships to bloom, but I'm going to fight it as hard as I can. Thank you SOOOOO much Jo G., for starting my day off with such awesomeness. You truly have no idea how long gestures like this stay with me. We're 'lifers', that's for sure!

For me, dentistry and life often mimic each other. In life, we have good friends and best friends; in my job, I definitely have good patients but I also have a few who are favorites because of the special friendship we’ve created. Today, as I write this through tears I cannot stop, I want the world to know about one of them. It’s hard to find the words to tell you about the amazing person Jamie Eubanks Tinschert was. Absolutely beautiful inside and out. Jamie was gentle-natured and laughed easily, but had a warrior spirit. She fought until the bitter end with a resolve and determination that few could. I remember the day 8 years ago that she told me she was diagnosed with Multiple Myeloma. We cried together for a long while, and I went home and cried alone that night, knowing what her journey would likely be. Through it all, she truly never gave up the fight—she did boot camp daily through her chemo treatments, ran a 5k 6 months after her stem cell transplant, then came a half marathon, and then she hiked Mt. Havasu to raise money for research! I’m sure I’m forgetting something else amazing, but this shows her fortitude.

Jamie adored her husband and never failed to say something amazing about Ronnie every time I talked to her. Most importantly, she was an INCREDIBLE mother—her 3 boys are truly the kindest, most handsome, and empathetic kids I’ve ever known.

Jamie and I used to laugh at how far we’d come because it didn’t begin that way! I remember the day she walked in in 2007, unannounced, and I was typing notes at the front. I turned to see this woman standing there whose eyes were boring right through me! She began hurling questions so fast my head was spinning, and she was emphatically pounding her hand on the counter as she spoke. She had an arm full of bracelets and it was so noisy and I remember thinking “Is this woman gonna’ calm down?!” Looking back, I realize she just needed me to earn her trust. She had been through multiple rounds of braces and Invisalign and nothing worked, and she wanted a perfect smile. She ended up being my first cosmetic case in my new practice and the results were fantastic. When I see her pictures now I take comfort in knowing the smile looking back at me is the one we created together, and that I did earn her trust.

During our last phone 'date' a few weeks ago, we laughed as I reminded her of the many nutty things that seemed to happen when she was at my office, most notably the time she backed into my car. I still drive it and that little dent now takes on special meaning. 😊

The sadness is so raw but I am so thankful to have a goodbye note from Jamie that I can keep forever. How many dentists, truly, are that lucky?

To Josh, Justin, Kyle, Ronnie, & Todd…words are insufficient but she loved you…beyond. You created a family structure that most can only envy. I hope that brings you some measure of comfort during this difficult time.

Rest easy, beautiful friend. You are gone far too soon and will be missed more than any words can say. Your final words to me I’m sending back to you, now, “I love you so much.”
Dina

[05/03/20]   With the 'highs' come the lows. I've always used my office page to highlight great things patients say or send, beautiful outcomes of the cases we do, and to memorialize those who I have lost. Today is one of those days, sadly, for a memorium. This one didn't come to me readily...it took some searching to find out about Diana, whom I had been doing my best to keep tabs on. Diana was my sweet and gentle Italian mama who had been bravely fighting Stage 4 breast cancer for 10 years! Her visits became more infrequent so I'd call her every few months to check on her. When I didn't hear back, I knew something was wrong. Diana was just a likable lady...we bonded over our love of children. She was a proud mom of 4 and an elementary teacher. She continued to work these past 10 years, through the chemo., through the fatigue, and through the pain. That tells you what type of spirit she had! She was another one who would come in for an hour's visit and it'd turn into 2 hours at the end of the day because we'd talk so long. Through her tears she told me every, single time that she felt 'safe' in my office and that is why she opened up so much. I take great comfort in knowing I affected her that way. I have seen all of her kids over the last decade, but it was the two youngest I saw the most. #EmmaCierski and #OliviaCierski....I want you to know how often your Mom talked about you girls, how proud she was of you, and how very much she loved you. If she tells her dentist, that's sayin' something! I know you already knew these things but you can never hear it too many times. I am so very sorry for your loss but so thankful to have known your beautiful Mother.

[05/01/20]   I was so sad, yet HONORED, to receive this email yesterday! This is when I know I do impact some people's lives, sometimes, and that is a great feeling! He lives and works in Utah and I've never even seen his picture to put a face with a name, but I feel like I've known him for decades. Small gestures like this are super appreciated, especially in these wonky times.
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Hi Dr. Dina,

I had to share the sad news with you, I am no longer employed by ###XX. As you are fully aware, Covid-19 has impacted the dental industry, hard! So hard, it reached the doors of ###XX and they had major layoffs. I will be honest, I didn't think my job or department would be impacted as much as it was.

I wanted to say goodbye - for now! I have hopes of returning to further my career. It will take some time to get back to the level of representative needed to service the dental community, but I will be waiting and ready to join when that time comes.

Truth be told, you are the only Doctor I said goodbye to. From our first interaction years ago to our latest, I've always been impressed with your ability to be more than just a Doctor, but a good friend as well. My interaction with most, if not all Doctors is 100% business, 100% of the time, but not you! And because of that, I say thank you!

I hope you and your staff have been healthy and safe throughout this pandemic. I know I don't need to ask about the financial impact this has had on your business. I hope and pray you can get back to work soon and re-establish your day to day activity with a smile and an optimistic approach to the future.

It's been a pleasure working with you, but most important, I'm grateful for your friendship.

Best of luck,
Chris

[04/30/20]   Helllloooooo everyone! I don't know how many patients actually read my FB but I'm trying to reach out any way I can, en masse. I have already received so many messages from peeps wanting appointments. It is gratifying that so many of you are ready to go! But...in light of the Governor's conference yesterday I do have to make some things clear. Just because we got the 'go ahead' doesn't mean I/we can. Most of us in the dental community find it ironic that being in THE riskiest profession we were given the okay to be the first to open. Doesn't really add up.
For me, personally, I still am not sure when I will be able to reopen, as I cannot do so until I have proper PPE in my office. The supply chain for the needed PPE is still empty--in fact, today one of my suppliers said "It's the wild, wild west out there" and trying to source things from legit vendors is getting harder and harder. There are so many fraudulent dealers.
This week we also received a 52 PAGE MANUAL from the ADA on all the rules and protocols we must put in place in order to see patients. Setting that in motion doesn't happen overnight.
From a patient perspective, you need to be aware of what is coming and how things will change. I know we are horribly behind on appointments and that won't end any time soon. We will be seeing FAR fewer patients each day, certain procedures are still not encouraged, and many are being encouraged to be modified. Once we reopen, it is still highly likely that current appointments will be cancelled and rescheduled in order to prioritize needs and meet protocols. I have not yet determined what I will personally do but it is being encouraged NOT TO POLISH teeth with toothpaste during cleanings. We are to remove all the bacteria and 'big stuff', per usual. But, you may not leave with that slick, squeaky clean feeling.
There is a fairly extensive "precheck" patients will need to do prior to their appointment. Taryn will be performing most of these by phone, and I will be posting the required documents on our website so that you can print and complete as much as possible at home, to save time.
Per the requirements, we will no longer be allowed to have patients waiting in the reception area. Including parents. You will have to wait in your cars, call us upon your arrival to let us know you are here, and then we will call you back when we're ready for you to come inside. There will be a hand sanitization that you will have to do, immediately, along with a health questionnaire, and temperatures must be taken. ALL PEOPLE ENTERING MUST ALSO BE WEARING A MASK. I know that sounds crazy since you'll be opening your mouth for the subsequent hour, but we don't make the rules.
I suggest everyone bring a sweater because the office will now be VERY COLD due to the Ghostbuster attire I have to wear. The surgeons and endodontists who saw our emergency patients for us these past 6 weeks have said it's almost impossible to breathe through the n95 masks and it tires you out quickly. Thus, we need cold temps. and will have to schedule longer appointments. Dentistry requires 100%, non-stop concentration. It was already exhausting...COVID takes it to another level.
This has been a novella but there's no way around it. I am glad to know everyone I've spoken to by phone or email is healthy. I only had 1 patient contract the virus, to my knowledge, and she is okay. Congrats. Michele N.!!
Taryn and I look forward to seeing everyone. And though our faces will be basically saran-wrapped, we'll be smiling beneath.
Cheers!
Dr. Dina
