Early Orthodontic Treatment: Is it Really Necessary?
Sara Andrews, DDS, MS
As a full-time practicing orthodontist, treating patients of all
ages from 6 to 78 years old, I see the occlusal factors that
cause dental destruction daily. I ask myself: “Could early
orthodontic intervention have prevented this?” Too often I
see a teenager with impacted maxillary canines and they’re
resorping the roots of the neighboring laterals, and I lament:
“If I had seen this patient at age 8 or 9, I could have done
something to perhaps avoid this.” I hereby, aim to encourage
you to shift your thinking from fixing problems to preventing
them by screening for early orthodontic problems.
Early or phase I orthodontic treatment remains controversial
because many orthodontic problems can wait until teenage
years to be corrected, but there are some that can’t and after
reading this you will be able to identify certain patients that
should be referred during the mixed dentition. Phase I
treatment will initially incur a longer treatment time and a
higher financial cost, but at the benefit of preventing a
lifelong occlusal factor continuing to cause destruction.
In the mid-mixed dentition child (typically age 8-9), make sure
to look at the maxillary canines on the radiographs and
palpate for them. Excessive mesial angulation of the
maxillary canine heading toward the apex of the lateral is an
early sign of impaction. Also look at all the six-year molars .
Occasionally, they erupt mesially and cause early loss of the
primary second molars leading to severe crowding, and
impaction of the second premolars.
In posterior uni or bilateral crossbite the benefits of maxillary
expansion are many. Skeletal expansion of the palate via a
Rapid Palatal Expander (RPE) can only be achieved at a young
age before the fusion of the palatal shelves. Thus, the midmixed
dentition stage is the ideal time to refer the patient with
a crossbite. Another benefit for widening the palate has also
been a reduction of nasal airway resistance, thereby
improving breathing through the nose.
While most children can wait until the permanent dentition to
have treatment, early orthodontic treatment can have
significant benefits for a child with specific needs. If we can
prevent a tooth from becoming impacted, enamel from being
worn, gingiva from receding, incisors from fracturing, and
increasing a child’s ability to breathe easier, let’s not miss the
chance to do so.
Please have your young patients no later than 8 years of age
get an orthodontic evaluation with the orthodontist you use,
so we can make the lives of our patients better together.
A crossbite (anterior or posterior) is often an early sign of
growth discrepancy of the jaws; most commonly a narrow
and/or retrusive maxilla. If left alone, significant enamel
attrition can occur. A single tooth anterior crossbite often
causes labial displacement of a mandibular incisor causing
premature apical migration of the gingiva. These problems
are best addressed early.
An overjet larger than 6mm puts the maxillary incisors at
significantly higher risk for fracture. I often see traumatized
and in some cases devitalized maxillary centrals in a child.
Orthodontic treatment can prevent damage to these teeth
and maintain them for a lifetime if diagnosed by the referring

A True Star In Dentistry
A Conversation with Dr. Art Dugoni
Ben Yount, DDS
Dr. Arthur A. Dugoni is one of dentistry's most distinguished and beloved members. He was the
president of the following organizations: the San Mateo County Dental Society from 1960-1961, the
California Dental Association (CDA), the American Dental Association (ADA), the American Board of
Orthodontics, and the American Dental Education Association. He was also dean of University of the
Pacific School of Dentistry from 1978-2006. He made advancements in dental education, patient care,
and the profession as a whole. In 2004, University of the Pacific honored Dean Dugoni by renaming the school University of the
Pacific, Arthur A. Dugoni School of Dentistry.
Dr. Dugoni is larger than life. He's an orthodontist, a veteran, an educator, someone who believes in organized dentistry, and is
a family man always. He is the reason why there are so many modalities in oral health care today.
During the 1990's, while president of the ADA, he was on a commission that was laying the groundwork for how medicine and
dentistry should be carried out. There were medical doctors, pharmacists, heads of universities and governors, but he was the
token dentist. The conversation was on managed care and Dr. Dugoni studied the proposal noting that all the other
professionals had signed the document. He saw where his signature was to go, put the pen down, and said, “You're taking
medicine down the wrong road in which they'll be controlled for the rest of their lives and to the bottom line. That's not in the
best interest for the care of the patient and I'm not signing it.”
The healthcare professionals and lawmakers looked to Dr. Dugoni in astonishment, but now dentistry was out of the
government's control and this allowed for group practices, solo practices, and corporate models to coexist. Dr. Dugoni
maintained the autonomy for dentists and patients by letting them choose how they wanted to provide and receive dental
While Dr. Dugoni was working at the ADA, he was also the dean at Pacific where he implemented the humanistic approach the
school is known for. He made it so the students, staff, and faculty were all on the same level, being each an integral part of a
team dedicated to excellent patient care. This created an environment where everyone stood behind an idea that was greater
than themselves and championed it along with their leader. Dr. Dugoni said, “The teams we built are the best teams, but
they're only 1/10 leader.”
At 94 years old Dr. Dugoni has slowed down just a bit. He only goes to the dental school three days a week to do his work at the
foundation. He embodies giving back to the profession that made us. We can all give back a small portion per month to the
dental schools we graduated from and over time it will equate to a much larger sum. That money will not only improve the
dental schools, but it will also help decrease the cost of a dental education and just might decrease the financial burden on
Dr. Arthur A. Dugoni is a hero among dentists. He has more awards and accolades than can be listed here and although he is
proud of his achievements, he is a humble man. I truly believe that he looks upon his accomplishments not entirely as his own,
but of those of the profession. One of his attributes that sets him apart is his remarkable ability to remember your face, your
name, and to always make you feel special. I relate this to us dentists writing down a trip our patients might be taking or an
activity they like to do. We keep the conversation going six months later. Dr. Dugoni sees dentists at events years later and
keeps the conversation going.
I recently met Dr. Dugoni at his home and the first thing he asked was, “How's your biking?” Few people outside of my family
and friends know how passionate I am about bicycling. Dr. Dugoni remembered. I was touched, and I knew this meeting would
Dr. Dugoni is a beacon for advancement, always looking to perfect the care for patients whether through legislation or
education, and always with a personal touch. In his home is a display case filled with awards, plaques, trophies and medals.
Beside them are pictures marking great moments and a few sentimental pieces, a toy car and his Navy uniform. Along the walls
and shelves are photos of his family. He has 7 children, 15 grandchildren, and 8 great grandchildren. He exudes dentistry at its
highest level, but family and relationships are his true passion. We should all be grateful to be part of Dr. Dugoni's dental family
so let's continue to make him proud by giving our talents and our time to our dental schools and the dental profession.

Life After Dental School
Doing More With Less
Nes Morales, DDS
Take vitals. Wait. Faculty Check. Anesthetize & place rubber
dam. Wait. Faculty check. Begin prep. Wait. Faculty check.
This is a process all too familiar for any dental student. Once
graduation comes, gone are the faculty that oversee every
step of your work and now comes the time to transition into
the working world. As nice as that sounds, there are some
significant differences between dental school and the
working world. In this article, I will be talking about some
tips, tricks, and things to expect as a new dentist.
One aspect to be prepared for is to perform dentistry with
significantly less equipment at your disposal. My dental
school had a wide variety of equipment available (ie.
electrical handpieces, oscillating tips, every kind of bur
imaginable) at an almost limitless supply. In the working
world, you will likely have less of a variety and amount of
equipment to use. I recommend to try to “do more with
less” and practice being efficient with a smaller amount of
to have if you were considering practice ownership in the
Lastly, I believe it's very important to enjoy life outside of
dentistry. As wonderful as the profession is, it can be very
easy to feel stressed out, overburdened, and exhausted at
times. There's more to life than work, and dentistry is no
exception. Whether it’s planning a vacation, playing guitar,
or just seeing your friends, make sure to make time for the
things and people you enjoy.
Although the working world brings new challenges, there
isn't anything a motivated new dentist can't handle. I
strongly believe that as long as you work hard and are nice to
everyone, amazing things can happen.
Questions/Comments? Feel free to contact me at
firstname.lastname@example.org or IG @drnesmartin
In addition, I believe any appointment (especially an
exam/treatment planning one) should be taken as an
opportunity to impress your patient. Confidence is key and
is something patients can pick up quickly. As a dentist, I
believe it's our responsibility to help patients understand
not only what their treatment plan consists of but why
exactly each treatment is needed. One technique that
works well for me is that I try to co-diagnose with my
patients, where I show them their x-rays/photos and see
how they interpret it. I feel it's a great way to clarify any
confusion they might have and it helps build trust. I also
believe that if a patient is confused and does’nt understand
their treatment plan completely, they will most likely not
Another aspect that will come up for a new graduate is the
topic of dental insurance. Is the clinic you're looking at PPO,
HMO/DSO, or fee for service? How will that affect you? I
would suggest speaking with your front office or the
primary dentist/owner on learning some of the nuances of
dental insurance and how that can directly affect you as a
provider. Additionally, I feel this is a practical conversation

Working in Corporate Dentistry
An Insiders Look
Prerna Vijan, DDS
Having the opportunity to work in different clinic settings including corporate chains and a private dental clinic has greatly
broadened my outlook towards dentistry. Both of these experiences have vastly enriched my knowledge and skill sets.
Currently I work as a managing dentist at Western Dental and this role has provided me a different perspective towards the
field of dentistry. In this article I will share my experience of working in a corporate dental chain. Most of my views are based
on my personal observations. In addition, I will also list the reasons as to why one would choose to work in a corporate dental
Why work in Corporate?
I found corporate dental clinics to be very structured in the way the clinics function. The structure is set by the head company.
Despite there being differences in the working of individual clinics the standard functioning protocols are laid down by the
head company making it very smooth for clinicians to practice in a consistent pattern. There are on-boarding trainings held by
field trainers for team members to help them transition smoothly into the structured flow of the clinic as well as training the
clinicians to use the electronic health record software to access and document in a patient's e-chart.
In corporate dental clinics the practitioner generally sees a large quantum of patients per day. Not only do the individual
offices book appointments, but the corporate call centre also helps in scheduling new patients to ensure we have a full
schedule. The exposure to a large patient pool teaches everyone to work together with great efficiency in order to ensure a
smooth continuum of daily operations.
An important aspect of working for a corporate dental chain is that we are multitasking. We deal with managing a
large/continuous flow of patient pool all while constantly striving to create an experience in which every patient feels they
have walked into a private dental clinic.
8 | San Mateo County Dental Society | smcds.com
One of the major advantages of working in a corporate clinic is that we have multiple specialties under one roof. We have a
team of periodontists, oral surgeons, sedation specialists, orthodontists, pediatric dentists, and endodontists visiting our
clinics a couple days per month. This helps in treating our patients comprehensively wherein the general dentist works
closely with the specialists to ensure excellent patient outcomes. This also creates an opportunity for team members to learn
from each other and have a great support system wherein we grow together.
We are fortunate to have numerous CE courses and access to a career centre where we are constantly updating ourselves
with the latest protocols and guidelines in dentistry. In addition, there are multiple training programs including implant
trainings and comprehensive patient care that help us enrich our knowledge and skills to ensure that we are learning and
expanding as successful clinicians daily.
An important aspect in corporate dentistry is the high level of emphasis put on quality dentistry. We have a Peer Review
Board that ensures that we perform quality care in accordance with the highest standards while serving our patients at all
I am currently a managing dentist at Western Dental. This role entails performing comprehensive exams, treatment planning,
performing treatment, helping train new associate dentists and team members as well as being involved in managing a heavy
flow of patients. Moreover, I am responsible for overseeing the smooth functioning of the daily clinic operations. Working as
a managing dentist has not just helped me polish my clinical skills, but it has also helped me emerge as a manager. I am a
mentor and a leader wherein I am privileged to ensure that I lead by example motivating my team members and carrying
others with me as I grow.
I would like to conclude by stating that working for a corporate dental chain has something for everyone. Whether it is a new
graduate who wants more exposure, a seasoned dentist who wants to work in a well-structured system, or someone who
wants to take on a leadership role, corporate dentistry is a great place to be.

Dentistry: Image in Peril
Ben Yount, DDS
“What Your Dentist Isn't Telling You” was the title of an article in the May edition of the well-known
publication, The Atlantic. Ferris Jabr was the writer and he chronicled a dentist who was doing
procedures on patients that were unnecessary. Jabr then went on to talk about how unscientific
dentistry is as a whole and the disconnect between medicine and dentistry. He questioned the
necessity of fluoride for adults, the need for a healthy adult to see a dentist more than once every 12-16 months, all while
saying “no matter how charming your dentist is they're probably trying to pay back their student loans.” Is this what
people think of dentists? Being a dentist myself I came to the conclusion that there's a perception problem among the
general public towards dentistry and we need to change this.
In our practices, dental patients are healthier now than ever and it’s not by chance. People want to keep their teeth for
life and through science we understand the risk factors for tooth decay and gum disease and we're teaching our patients
prevention. Jabr’s article really made me think how far dentistry has come. In the not so distant past adults with missing
teeth were prevalent and by the time many people reached middle age having dentures was common. During that time
dentists were only treating the disease. People now are seeing their dentist regularly, sometimes for quarterly
cleanings, and there’s value in that. We’re no longer just drilling, filling, and billing. We’re asking
why people get tooth decay and why people get gum disease. We’re seeing entire families and
watching for patterns. Having treated the parents we can predict the outcome of their children’s
gums and teeth. There are other factors too such as smoking and poor oral hygiene which we’re
educating our patients on. In terms of cavities, CAMBRA is widely used. It stands for Caries Risk
Assessment and Management and it’s an evidence based approach to preventing and managing
tooth decay that’s approved by the American Dental Association. We now have a clear
understanding of which bacteria are responsible for causing cavities and we’re classifying patients
within certain risk categories and treating them accordingly. We may call ourselves family dentists,
general dentists, or dental specialists, but we're all dental scientists.
Jabr argued that dentistry and medicine are separate exemplifying the notion that people’s
mentality for going to a routine dental visit tends towards being “just a cleaning” somewhat like
getting a haircut. Instead dentists and dental hygienists are teaching their patients that oral health
is part of their overall health and a routine dental visit is more like an annual physical. Articles such
as Jabr’s just adds to the mentality that oral health is not necessary which is misguided.
By definition we as dentists are caring for a patient’s gums and teeth yet we’re treating the entire
body. At each checkup we’re doing a head and neck exam looking for lumps, bumps, a discoloration,
and potentially cancer. We’re also consulting with our patients' medical doctors on their health,
discussing previous or upcoming operations, and if what we're recommending requires us to
proceed with caution. Dentists across the nation are also taking their patients’ blood pressure and
opening the conversation about living healthy through diet and exercise.
We as dentists know we’re part of the solution. Articles such as this are not the root of the problem,
but some writers, media outlets, and the public have preconceived notions about what dentistry is
today. Dentists took an oath to do no harm. Of course there are dental and medical doctors taking
advantage of their patients, but they’re the minority.
Jabr’s article in The Atlantic gives the dental community the opportunity to open the conversation
between dentists and the public. I hope this writing empowers dentists and brings awareness to
patients across the nation to show that dental health is imperative and that the dental team is a
pillar in society.

Reflections in Nepal
Mina Desai, DDS
My name is Mina Desai and I'm a general dentist in San Carlos. As many of you know I was the president
of the dental society in 2017. What some of you may not know is that I have a passion for traveling the
world and providing my services to those in need. I have gone out of the country on dental missions
three times and I recently went to Nepal with my 22 year old son to work with the Global Dental Relief
group and help monk children.
The monk children of Nepal live in extreme rural conditions in the temples among the Himalayas. My young patients told me
stories of how they got to the clinic. One of these stories was of a group of children that had gotten up before the sun rose,
walked 2 hours down the mountain to catch a bus that took them another 2 hours through dust laden roads to arrive where I
was. Me and the other dental personnel did all that we could to take care of these children. In a short period of time we saw
708 patients and provided $134,750 worth of dentistry.
My son and I truly enjoyed providing all types of dental treatment to the monk children of Nepal and they were so grateful.
Part of the experience was not only to do dentistry, but to trek among the mountains. For six days we hiked and finally made it
to a clearing where we had a beautiful view of Mount Everest in all her glory. Right then I realized that I had found my calling
and I am so proud to be a dentist. Treating the underserved from around the world and within our local communities is the
way I enjoy our wonderful profession the most.
