All that's new in the world of dentistry

Dental Team

There is a large team of dental professional volunteers here at the Olympic Polyclinic, so it is always nice to work with different people and also discover a GDPUK lurker in our midst too, which I threatened to post the picture of him working if he didn't make a GDPUK posting today :)
We are still seeing some unusual cases too - what do you say/do to someone who complains of pain and bleeding gums under their bridge, which in this case has metal abutments on an upper lateral and second premolar, with pontics replacing the canine and first premolar with a ridge-lapping design?


We are all mucking in together here and don't mind wondering in and out of each other's surgery, giving second opinions etc, because realistically some of these treatments can be completed before the Olympics finish, but in many mouths not all the care they ideally need.
With Ramadan we are also finding many patients attending for often complex treatments late in the evening, which when you've done a long shift already, having someone turn up for surgical extractions at 11pm at night isn't really the ideal, but we accomodate the Atheletes and team members needs as best we can.
