Happy New Year – Highlights of 2020 – Part 3 – July to September

January 18, 2021

The second half of the year began with the predicted second wave of infections has happened overseas. In the USA people enjoyed the Memorial Day holiday as a normal day at their peril. They had the worst one day spike in cases since the start of the pandemic. In Australia we have had protest marches, with people ignoring the health warnings and the real evidence of second wave infections from overseas.


This month began with a recap blog series – Dentistry and the Coronavirus 2020 followed by the real issue of the coronavirus was Preventing Future Aerosol Infections.

The world also changed for learning. This meant conferences and further dentist development education had to go online with the Dentist at Large during Covid 19 – Different! blog.

July ended with a non Covid blog on Shaping Up Teeth; about the appearance of teeth can often be improved in appearance and function by often small changes to the anatomy of the teeth.

Covid was still with us with Covid-19 Second Wave!?, “Well it happened. In Victoria through incompetent quarantine management of overseas travellers who had Covid-19 and a protest march, it has spread into the community and into NSW”. I think similar scenarios have repeated itself many times since then.

End of August was a reflection on Dental Health Week – How Much Sugar is Hidden in Your Trolley? Part 1. Sugar-sweetened beverages such as soft drinks, energy drinks, sports drinks and even fruit juices are packed with sugar. These drinks provide no nutritional content and increase your risk of developing tooth decay as well as a range of other health conditions like Type 2 diabetes.


This month was devoted to the Dental Health Week theme – How Much Sugar is Hidden in Your Trolley?

Dental Health Week – How Much Sugar is Hidden in Your Trolley? Part 2 – Reading the Labels

It’s important to read the Nutrition Information Panel found on the food label to make a proper healthy choice.

Dental Health Week – How Much Sugar is Hidden in Your Trolley? Part 3 – Understanding Sugar

Remember foods the claim to have no “added sugar” often have a higher level of sugar from natural sources, but these sugars can still cause tooth decay.

Sugar Less Chewing Gum

Sugarless chewing gum increases the saliva flow often five-fold. So when you are not eating, the chewing gum stimulates the salivary glands to pump saliva to protect the teeth, the mouth and allow proper swallowing function.

The month ended with Covid 19 therapy… Escape to the Mountains – Dentist at Large.
