Happy New Year – Highlights of 2020 – Part 1 – January to March

January 4, 2021

This year would have to be called a black swan event since the last back swan event of 100 years ago – both pandemics. The Spanish flu started in earnest in 1918-1920 when the War to end all Wars carried the flu to the ends of the planet with the returning soldiers, travelling on large ships and aircraft. The virus originated in Europe or possibly USA.

The virus killed more people than the war.

Fast forward to today and another virus, Covid-19, has caused a pandemic and is wreaking havoc with the world.


The highlights of 2019 part 1, part 2, and part 3, showed a historical perspective of normal life! Then a blog on celebrating Australia Day but Australia showed how harsh a place it is with devastating bush fires.

The month stated with the final part of highlights of 2019. The rest of the mouth dealt with the Treatment of Enamel Defects (Hypoplasia and Hypo-calcification) – Prevention, early intervention, and restoration.

These defects are life-long in the permanent adult teeth.

As these defects mean a weakening of the enamel constant monitoring is needed. The defective enamel is more porous and weaker in strength. Over time normal activity can wear this weaken tooth material. Regular monitoring is very important.
