Just recently, I received the two-step Pfizer Covid vaccine; everything went just fine, and other than a little soreness in my shoulder, I didn't notice any other symptoms!

Every person in the world suffers from some sort of fear, but did you know, approximately 60% of the U.S. population suffers from a form of anxiety, fear, or phobia toward dental procedures? This is truly an unbelievable amount!

Aristotle, the famous Greek philosopher, once wrote about three very distinct types of friendships in the eighth volume of The Nicomachean Ethics; the friendship of utility, the friendship of pleasure, and the friendship of the good. Out of these three types of friendships, there is only one that will last the test of time, which is something we all strive to achieve.

We had to cancel an upcoming flight to Mexico because of the new CDC restrictions that may have prevented us from returning home. We had a couples trip planned, and we didn’t want to get stranded from our kids. But there are still plenty of fun things to do stateside.

Can you believe how mild this winter has been so far? I bet that in March we will get dumped on with snow here in the Salt Lake Valley! The good news is we have passed the winter solstice, so the days and evening daylight is now getting longer.

A couple of weeks ago I shared an email with you about a motorcycle accident which we witnessed. It got me thinking about being more careful on the roads when we are driving and when we are on two wheeled vehicles. (I spend a fair amount of time on my mountain bike and road bike so I’m always on the lookout!)

Audiology is the study of normal and disordered hearing. It involves both a scientific discipline and a clinical profession. An audiologist is a health care professional that is educated in both of these areas. The entry level degree is a doctorate. The audiologist is credentialed through a professional accrediting body usually after a one year residency and then licensed in their state of residency.

Last Friday night we were driving through 9000 South to my brothers house for an outdoor movie night with the family, when all the sudden in a congested area of traffic, we heard a loud screeching crash.

There is a lot of speculation about the Coronavirus and how it works these days. Is it spreading fast? Is it better than projected? Or is it worse than projected? Can it be transferred on surfaces or not?

I love to work out. Now don’t get me wrong, I’m not posing to be a super-workout-junkie. I just love the feeling of exercise and how it clears my mind and helps me feel better about everything in life. One of my favorite Christmas gifts ever are my AirPods my wife gave me, because of how much I love to listen to books and podcasts while I bike or go to the gym. I typically exercise 5-6 days per week, but some of my workouts are just 30 minutes.

I've always been amazed at logistics. For under 60 cents you can get a piece of mail or an important letter across the country, in under three days. We have many patients who work for either UPS, FedEx, the postal service or long haul and short haul trucking.

I work in a very dangerous environment. In fact, dentistry was rated as the second most dangerous career today. You will probably burst out laughing like my wife said when I told her that being a dentist was the second most dangerous job today.

Over Thanksgiving weekend I got hit with a lingering cold. Have you had your turn yet? I figured I’d “get it out of the way” early this winter. It could have been much worse, I didn’t miss any work or family activities. No flu for me.

I took this photo from an airplane, at around 5:30 am on October 25th on my flight to Denver for a Small Business conference. When I landed in Colorado, everyone was talking about the early snow this year and the predicted 15 inches of snow to fall later that weekend - one of the earliest in years according to the people I spoke with in the area.

There are a lot of things in life we take for granted. Recently, our 3 year-old Nora turned on a hose and left it running near the window well, which seeped nearly 200 gallons of water into our basement. Thank goodness for those powerful fans from the flood company, a warm climate that week, and our dry air in Utah.

A few weeks ago I was driving and noticed a billboard that said “How was work today?” and it linked to this website: howwasworktoday.com/good-vote/. I of course love my job and our fantastic patients, so when I arrived to somewhere I could stop the car, I voted thumbs up right away.

I wanted to take a minute today and talk about two benefits of having a Smartwatch that you may not be aware of. Now smartwatches are all the craze and right now and it started a couple of years ago with the Fitbit as we started to track you know how many steps we take and exercise and those kind of things. I think one of the best things about it is it makes us all a little bit more aware of what's happening with our health and what we're doing with our day.

If you have a tooth where the bacterial infection from a carious lesion, aka a cavity, has reached the pulp of the tooth. Other indications for Root Canal Therapy are for cracked or chipped teeth, fillings that are too close to the pulp and cause irreversible inflammation, and certain other types of injuries a tooth may have been subject to such as trauma. Lingering sensitivity to temperature changes, discomfort upon biting, and tenderness of gums around a tooth and signs of an abscess are also signs of a tooth that may need Root Canal Therapy. Root Canal Therapy is an excellent pain-relieving procedure.

This summer has been a lot of fun, as usual, it’s a fantastic time of year. We have so much to do all around us. Recently our oldest son, Judson turned 11, which reminded me that I have now been a father for 11 years. Wow. Time flies fast. It also reminded me of something I learned from Jerry Seinfeld that relates to parenting. This principle also relates to exercise, friendship or anything else that requires hard work and discipline in life.

Now that summer's here you're probably looking forward to get outside and enjoy some sunshine and enjoy all the great summer activities we have around us and you know if you're like me it's great to be out in the warmth and doing all the fun activities that we have in our natural surroundings.
