Hello, I have a question. I am in search of the absolute best cosmetic dentist, specializing in single front tooth crowns. I know this is one of the most difficult procedures for a dentist so I truly need the VERY BEST in the Atlanta area. Any guidance or recommendations would be greatly appreciated!
Please join us at MUSC-CDM for this wonderful program with Dr. Frank Milnar on Saturday, March 30, 2019 at the College of Dental Medicine in Charleston. #dentists #education #dentaleducation #MUSCJBECDM

Hello fellow dentists! As you all are aware, GMOM is taking place in Augusta, GA this year from August 9th - August 11. We are still in need of LOTS of volunteers. Everything from patient guides and patient educators to restorative dentists and restorative assistants are still needed! Please consider volunteering yourself and your dental team for this very humbling experience! Register to volunteer using the link below:
Greetings, I am DeVonte Johnson, Community Outreach Director for the Love Your Smile 5K. We created the Love Your Smile movement to address the oral health disparities in our country. From the public health perspective, oral health has continuously been buried under all the other health concerns like HIV/AIDS awareness, heart disease, smoking, etc., even though 1 out of 3 adults in the US have untreated dental disease. Though our partnerships and social influence, we hope to make a profound impact on the culture of dental care advocacy and its connection to wellness! Our inaugural race is set for July 15th at the Historic Fourth Ward Park! We would love to have your organization be apart of this amazing event.Please let me know if you have any additional questions. See you race day! Registration Link

COVID-19 DENTAL PRACTICE OWNER FAQ'S thanks to our partners at Oberman Law Firm

Are my employees eligible for unemployment if we close the office?

Yes. If your office is closed for a period of time due to COVID-19, or your employees work less than full time during a week, your employees may be eligible for the payment of unemployment insurance benefits. Depending upon state unemployment laws, there may be a waiting period, such as one to two weeks, before they would be eligible for benefits. Unemployment insurance is available to employees who become unemployed through no fault of their own. An office closure due to COVID-19 is not the fault of the employee.

Some states, like Georgia, may require employers file partial unemployment claims for the benefit of their employees who are still employed, but currently working less than full time due to a lack of work. Please check with your local department of labor to confirm.

If an employee imposes a self-quarantine because of their potential exposure to COVID-19, such employee may not be eligible for unemployment insurance benefits. The employee is choosing not to work, and it is not the employer’s decision.

[03/17/20]   COVID-19 DENTAL PRACTICE OWNER FAQ'S thanks to our partners at Oberman Law Firm

Do I have to close my dental practice?

Currently there is no requirement that you close your dental practice. However, every precaution should be taken to help reduce the transmission of COVID-19. According to the American Dental Association, such precautions may include, but are not limited to, screening patients for their potential exposure to or risk of having the virus, use of personal protective equipment, taking the temperature of all patients before performing any procedures, cleaning and disinfecting public areas frequently, providing a waiting area that can accommodate “social distancing”, use of a rubber dam when appropriate to decrease possible exposure to infectious agents, use of high-speed evacuation for dental procedures producing an aerosol, autoclaving handpieces after each patient, and having patients rinse with a 1% hydrogen peroxide solution before each appointment.

While it is not mandatory, many dental associations, including the American Dental Association, are making recommendations that dentists voluntarily suspend all elective, non-urgent or non-emergency dental care for a period of time ranging from two (2) to three (3) weeks. The decision of whether a particular procedure may be necessary for a particular patient should be made on a case by case basis by the treating dentist in the exercise of his or her professional judgment.

Generally, elective procedures are those which may be beneficial but not absolutely essential at that time.

The situation on whether to close your practice or not should be monitored closely as the mandatory rules and recommendations for each state are changing rapidly.
