Dental Treatment Planning

Before you agree to have dental work performed, you should have a clear understanding of what procedures will be involved. A dental treatment plan is a contract with your dental provider. The treatment plan should outline both the goals and nature of the treatment as well as the expected costs. Although a treatment plan can be verbal or implied, it is good practice to obtain written agreement for the sake of everyone involved. Learn more

The Effects of Smoking on Oral Health

Everyone knows that smoking is bad for your health. But did you know how much damage is done to the teeth and gums by the consumption of nicotene? Oral cancer, bad breath, black hairy tongue are just some of the effects. Gum recession, delayed healing of the gums, periodontal disease, (smoker's palate), as well as staining and tar deposits on the teeth can also occur. This article looks at oral cancer in more depth.

Tips for Writing an Scholarship Essay

An important component of the scholarship process is the required essay. When you have found the perfect scholarship, do all that you can to increase your chances of being accepted. Here are some tips to help you.

Featured Article

What if, in addition to scholarships, grants and loans, you had a way to build your own stream of steady income to pay for dental school? What if, as a dental student, you had a website designed to get patients for your NERB examination? I have been so very fortunate, after searching and being very apprehensive about spending money on products that claim to work, to have found such a system. I am so delighted to share this information with you, in the hopes that if you are thinking of building a website that can potentially earn you hundreds, if not thousands of dollars each month, then I would strongly recommend that you check out SBI, otherwise known as Site Build It. Take a moment to read my journey.
