Practicing Dentistry During A Pandemic

There is no question that how we practice dentistry has changed (as it should) to adapt to the times.

A Note About Opioids

  • Drews Dental
Opioids are narcotic pain relievers that require a prescription from a medical professional.

Around the Water Cooler with the Business Team

  • Peter Drews, D.D.S., M.A.G.D.

As licensed and credentialed dental professionals, the first day of the last month of the year usually means at least a couple of us (ok, just me) are scouring emails, filing cabinets, and even under […]

Avoiding The Dreaded “Denture Face”

Obviously, you can’t easily tell the difference between two human skulls unless you happen to be into forensic anthropology or forensic odontology, but it’s important we start with the bones behind the face (and smile) to talk about how dentures can actually affect your overall facial appearance. Keeping It All Together (Dem Bones) Let me […]

  • Peter Drews, D.D.S., M.A.G.D.
For those of you who may not be familiar with the Mannequin Challenge, and perhaps wondered if your favorite dental office had lost their minds when we posted a video of the team holding various crazy poses last week, allow me to share a little background.

Why You Should (Still) Floss

  • Kristie Lake, DMD
Inquiring minds want to know what Dr. Drews and Dr. Lake think about the recent associated press report that states studies don’t support flossing. The AP article has certainly made its rounds. Here’s the general gist: The AP looked at the most rigorous research conducted over the past decade, focusing on 25 studies that generally […]
