Dental Problems over Christmas

Dental Problems over Christmas

Where to begin. The food, the booze, the gifts or the bit of crackling that just broke your tooth in half! We all worry about something over the Christmas period, from have we got enough food, or have we spent enough on the present for the distant relative that we see only at Christmas? But have you thought about what happens if you or a member of your family needs a health care provider over this season? So, let’s put this into a hypothetical scenario. You’ve just sat down for your Christmas dinner, rather it be a traditional roast turkey …

SAD- (Seasonal affective disorder)

SAD- (Seasonal affective disorder)

It’s that time of year again when the leaves are falling from the trees. Its dark when we leave for work and dark when we finish work for the day. So why, I ask myself, am I feeling so down and glum this time of year? We’ve had the fun of bonfire night with all the fireworks and now the craze is all about Christmas. I am excited, but I still find myself feeling so tired, sluggish, low on energy and feeling depressed most days, feeling as if I’m worthless and every day just feels like a struggle. Well help …

Brush your teeth to keep the dentist away

So once, twice, three times how many times should we brush our teeth a day? Well, how long is a bit of string? People have so many different factors to think of including patients who wear braces, patients with dentures and children who are just not going to co-operate as some people will be able to relate too, I’m sure! First off, its your mouth and it’s the entry point to your whole entire digestive system and your overall health so why wouldn’t you want it to be clean and healthy. We all make time for hair, makeup and picking …

A silver lining

A Silver Lining

Towards the end of 2020, we all had hope and could see the light at the end of the tunnel.  Approved vaccines, Christmas bubbles and the end of a devastatingly upsetting year. With the new strain, came the cancellation of Christmas bubbles, the start of a tiering system, and ultimately our third national lockdown. 10 months of lockdowns, isolation, social distancing, and grief, what is new about this new year? The struggle to keep positive, safe, and well during the previous months has at time been challenging.  But somehow, we got through. I have been fortunate that my family have …

Sunshine

Sunshine in a Bowl

Its no secret that summer makes everyone smile! Who doesn’t love the summer? The warmth, the sunshine, the longer days. But why does the summer make us happy? Other than the escape from cold, wet and miserable months, we get Vitamin D! Maintaining healthy vitamin D levels can keep you feeling happy and productive. But more importantly it plays a key role in our immune health and this is especially important in these winter months and during this pandemic.

NEBDN Topical Fluoride Course – A student perspective

I have recently completed and submitted my Record of Competence (ROC) for the Topical Fluoride Course.  The main reason that I opted to study towards this course and not the online certificate in fluoride application is because it is accredited by the NEBDN. Working and studying during a pandemic has been challenging in all aspects.  The reduction of routine care really took an impact on the amount of opportunities there were for me to apply fluoride and also to be able to treat a wide age range of patients that is required. However starting the pilot course at the beginning …

Motherhood and Education

As a woman, I pride myself on multitasking. Juggling the nursey drop off, working part time and keeping my home clean with a stocked fridge. I didn’t think it possible to add any more to my busy weekly schedule. Until Covid-19 struck! After the novelty of being permanently at home with my family during lockdown I began to miss my work. My surgery, my patients, my input and skills, I missed everything that was my normal. I started to revaluate my working life and how important my career had been to me.  And actually still is. After returning to work …
