Have you ever dreaded going to the dentist? If so, you are not alone. A visit to the dentist can be very anxiety-provoking. This fear can often lead to putting off dental work, making things worse. If you are the parent of a child who fears the dentist, you can attest to the difficulty of coaxing a child into the dentist's chair if they don't want to be there. Or, you yourself may be fearful of the dentist. This is not an uncommon fear, especially if you have had a negative experience in the past.

Call them germs, viruses, bacteria, fungus, or plain ol' “icky” – they are the micro-organisms that can cause infections and disease. Being disease-free from these contaminants is known as “asepsis”, and that is what the dental world strives to achieve.

The strategies to eliminate dental infections depend on many factors. For dental professionals, these can range from the most basic, yet necessary, steps, such as washing hands with soap and water, using gloves during procedures, and using medicine to treat infections if they should start.

I may be foolish at times, but never will I intentionally allow myself to look stupid.  I have a colleague who buys every hot tool, technology or gizmo the first day it is available. He doesn’t just buy it; he shows it off.  “Hey, Joe, look what I just got.”  My response is always mediocre at best.
