I visit my dentist on my regular check up and it's fairly safe....

Everyone should go at least once a year for a check up. I think some people don’t go because they don’t have the money.

This article is about US dentists. How about one about Japanese dentistry?

Yes and yes on this ! Go. Haven't been for 10 months and time to go. Oral health is really important.

I am usually diligent about dental appointments but am worried about one next week. I plan to call the dental office and request the tech use both an N95 face mask and a face shield or I will cancel my appointment. My last appointment six months ago the tech only wore a surgical mask and no goggles. That is not enough considering the more virulent strains of Covid present today and the generally higher infection rates prevalent.

Remember, be true to your teeth, or they will be false to you.
