I’m going to start this by apologizing to anyone I might offend on the topic of fluoride. Although, I can’t imagine a Dental Professional believing anti-fluoride is the way to go, I have heard there are a few. There’s a lot of controversy amongst the general population and this article isn’t [...]

By Dr. Deborah Marynak

I recall my years in private practice as very hard work. It wasn’t the Dentistry that exhausted me; it was the daily running of the office. Inventory, payroll, quarterly taxes, and Staffing issues were constants in my professional life. I felt there weren’t enough hours in a day to deal with [...]
