Dental "Insurance" is Just a Coupon (the short version) by Dr. Richard S. Wilson Jr, DMD, FAGD Dr. Richard S. Wilson Jr, DMD, FAGD graduated in 1987 from the University of Pennsylvania School of Dental Medicine. He then completed a General Practice Residency at the Albert Einstein Medical Center. He taught on a part-time basis at Penn Dental for four years, and at Einstein ever since 1992. Dr. Wilson is a member of the American Dental Association, the Academy of General Dentistry, the International Academy for Adhesive Dentistry, and the Philadelphia Academy of Stomatology, a dental continuing education society founded in 1894 which is the oldest of its kind in the United States. In 2001 and 2003, Dr. Wilson served as President of the Academy of Stomatology and for years was Essay Chairman, arranging four scientific lectures each year. He is now Historian. Concerned with best treatment outcomes, Dr. Wilson innovated by bringing the Surgical Operating Microscope into our dental practice. Our treatments are performed with unparalleled light and magnification. Another vital factor in treatment excellence is the comfort and well-being of all the folks responsible for those treatments. Dr. Wilson has recently fabricated bespoke fixtures and equipment that greatly improve the ergonomics of our dental office. This, in turn, improves patient care. Dr. Wilson has been married to his wife, Michelle, since 1984. She is Vice President and Portfolio Manager at Provident Bank–which was founded one hundred eighty years ago! They have two daughters, Amanda and Jenna. Dr. Wilson enjoys music, astronomy, restoring antique Telechron clocks, and especially recumbent bicycling. In 2014 he published his first novel, The Man Who Wore Mismatched Socks.

The Man Who Wore Mismatched Socks by Dr. Richard S. Wilson Jr, DMD, FAGD Rick Wilson was born and raised just outside of Philadelphia. I attended Marple-Newtown High School, Muhlenberg College, University of Pennsylvania School of Dental Medicine and then a splendid residency at Albert Einstein Medical Center. I entered dental practice and started gleaning lessons from many people, including numerous and diverse patients over the years. At the same time, I marveled at the power governments, corporations and the media have over our lives, and at the way they shape our world. I wondered--are we powerless in the face of humanity's great creations? Are we at their mercy? And an even more important question arose--is it morally defensible to treat human beings as interchangeable, anonymous, disposable cogs in an industrial, government or military machine? And then one day, all the things I had learned led me to a powerful conclusion: "A human being is never a commodity. Not for any reason, not under any circumstances." And then I started writing.

Lack of access to dental care causing oral health epidemic in Oregon. Representative Cedric Ross Hayden DDS spent his professional career as a dentist before joining the Legislature and now sits as the vice chair of the House Health Care Committee, so he has always been involved with health care bills and specifically dentistry since his first session in 2015 said Austin Parrett, Hayden’s chief of staff. There is lots of support and we are not expecting any issues. According to Miranda E. Davis, DDS, MPH, dental therapists can meet most dental needs in small communities where residents otherwise must drive hundreds of miles for care. She pointed to the success of the program started in Minnesota back in 2009. Minnesota has since licensed more than 100 dental therapists.
