However, a different type of trip that a German tourist recently took on Lombard Street in San Francisco was a very unwelcome surprise.  After she fell, her husband saw that her bridge had fallen out, and her face was bloody. He thought fast and Googled “dentist” on his iPad. Dr. Cynthia K. Brattesani’s name came up on the search as very close to them.

The winter holidays bring with them both happiness and reflection — it’s a time of looking back on memories and looking forward to hope. That’s why this story, my story means so much to me. As Manager, Public and Media Relations for DEXIS, I have many reasons to be thankful. I am grateful to be an integral part of a company with a conscience. DEXIS gives back to the community through donations of equipment and time, through worthy causes such as Give Kids a Smile, Mission of Mercy, and TeamSmile, just to name a few.

Posted by Jackie Raulerson

2013 commemorates the dental hygiene profession’s 100-year anniversary; and from a technological standpoint, there is no greater time to be a practicing RDH! Ask any hygienist who graduated from school more than 40 years ago; she may reminisce about an era when she wore a white uniform and nurse-type cap on her head; and cleaning a patient’s teeth meant using hand scaling only. Imagine that!  As hygienists moved into scrub-type garb, technology moved forward by leaps and bounds. Ultrasonic instrumentation and jetted prophylaxis devices created benefits for patients as well as efficiency and effectiveness for clinicians.
