Of course we see fear, pain, trauma, loss, difficulty, discomfort, disagreement, mistakes, uncertainty as things gone wrong.
Try to think those may be SOMETHING THAT WENT RIGHT, but for reasons that are not yet clear.
Then look back in your life, and see if you can find examples of that happening.
You may be surprised.
Today I discuss how to determine the needs, if present, in the growing child in primary and/or mixed/transitional dentition. How to examine? Is there a need? And, if so, how to diagnose and plan which therapies would be best for the child.
Often, I get questions from parents - including other dentists - about developmental challenges with their own children. This particular question from a dentist-DAD, about a 3-year-old mouth-breathing child, deals with a frequently-encountered developmental problem in small children.
Do you wonder if you are on the right track?
...what your life’s purpose is?
Life can be and is, often scary, confusing and a walk on the wild side.
Just look at the choices you have right now, and choose to be busy with what seems the most desirable choice.
Be happy now.
The sun will break through the clouds and your path will find you.
The pediatric dentist can do amazing — almost miraculous — life-transforming treatment WHEN he/she provides outstanding, needed orthodontic and orthopedic treatments. Here’s where to get outstanding orthodontic education. Joy for you and joy for the parents and patients!

How easy it is to take others’ opinions into oneself. And often not even realize it.
Sometimes it is what you learned as a child, and often it is what you BELIEVE others think of you.
Complex! Not even what people really think, but rather what we THINK they think!
Regardless, here is a power thought for your day,
“I now go beyond other people’s fears and limitations,
and I now go beyond MY fears and limitations.”
Why is Straight Wire Orthodontics NOT enough?
Why do our pre-programmed brackets not give us desired finished results?
The power of your thoughts is incredible!
Every one of your thoughts emits a potent message out, into the Universe.
That power joins the power of many others' thoughts, and even the movement of molecules in the things around us.
Your powerful 'cosmic waves' are part of the Universe, the sea of energy we live in. And they boomerang right back at you with more positive vibrations in your life!
Here’s a fabulous power thought for your day:
“Every day, in every way, I’m getting [better and better; healthier and healthier; stronger and stronger; happier and happier…]"
Choose happy, positive and energizing vibrations for your thoughts. It can make you exactly that - happy, positive and energizing!
Happy day, today and EVERY day!
To understand the heart-brain connection is priceless when you work with your young patients and their parents.
