Q. Can you get influenza after a dentist visit? I’ve been to the dentist yesterday and I woke up sick. Is it considered mal practice?

A. o..relax..first of all you can get the flu anywhere and anytime. Secondly- it takes more than a day to develop symptoms so yo probably got it from someone else. It’s not mal practice anyway, and stop thinking on how you can get money off your dentist :) here is a Southpark episode about it:

Q. How can I take an ADHD child to a dentist? He is afraid of the dentist and get nervous when he even hears about visiting a dentist. He gets even more active and uncontrollable.

A. My son is 9 w/ ADHD and extreme impulsivity. At 1yr. he was developmental delayed. Dad moved to AZ about 3 yrs. ago & didn't tell us. Son has been through therapy & medications & in special ed w/ me. Had a rough road in school, but the teachers loved him. He gave me alot of trouble so this past June I agreed to send him to his dad. This is what our son wanted. Now son calls crying, hiding under bed, in his closet, he says he is afraid of his dad, he shakes when his dad yells & son wants to move back home to me. He says he hates his dad. Dad won't talk to me on the phone, just laughs & says "send me child support". Dad never took son for parenting time long term. Just weekends when dad lived here. I hate to hear my son cry. I want my son back. Dad took him off all meds, he is struggeling in school & now suspended for 4 days for teasing 8th graders! Dad hasn't gotten his hair cut ever, hasn't taken him to the dentist for his spacer since some teeth got p

Q. What are the dentists going to do if I have Pit and fissure caries? I look at my teeth and i see tiny black stuff on the fissures of my molars. I am so freakin scared. Are the dentists going to do something painful?

A. Well you will have to see a dentist if you want an answer on what kind of treatment they will offer you. Today dentists use good anesthesia so anything they will do is not supposed to be painful.
