Everyone should check out this great write up on the comparison of dental costs to items of lesser importance that we don’t even question the cost of.
For those who have extreme fear of the those necessary visits to the dentist, check out this book:
A week or so ago I published my new book called “How to beat Dental Phobia” I wanted to offer it for free but in my rush I didn’t tick the right box and it went out on sale instead of for free. I have now resolved this small error and its back on Amazon for free until December the 4th!
I wanted to offer it to anyone that has a “Phobia of the Dentist” or knows anyone that has. This book is ground-breaking in its ability to lower and even get rid of, completely any fears that anyone may have about going to the dentist.
But that’s not all……..
Something else that I offer in all of my self-help books is my help and support. If you download my book and feel you need help with anything I will work with you for free, helping you deal with…

Really powerful pictures showing you the reasons why you should take care of your teeth!
Warning: pictures are really, really stomach turning!
So with the recent scandals in dentistry such as the BC rogue dentist providing unlicensed treatment to patients; I thought I put together a little guide to help you watch out for shady dentists as well as tips for finding a good dentist.
1. Do Your Homework and Make Sure the Dentist is Licensed to Practice.
This is one that people sometimes assume. We assume that the dentist is trained and licensed to practice. Even dentists from overseas that would like to help patients in Canada or the U.S., must complete training in the country they wish to practice in.
Standards of care in dentistry differ from country to country and I’ve heard that there are significant costs difference in some countries. One of my friend’s once told me her sister had her teeth extracted in another country for $5. I’m not saying that it was bad quality but $5 would hardly cover the costs of sterilizing the instruments, the supplies such as gauze and cotton rolls and not to mention the dentist’s time. I know if it were me and I had someone quote me $5 for a procedure that impacts my health and is very, very painful if done incorrectly without freezing; I would think twice.
So how can we ensure that the dentist we’re seeing is licensed. For Canadians, the Royal College of Dental Surgeons of Ontario or RCDSO has a dentist lookup feature on their website to ensure your dentist that you’re thinking about seeing is licensed.
For those looking for a new dentist, here’s the link:
So I’ve been pretty busy with the start of school, but I do have several more tips and pointers for those looking for a new dentist. So check back shortly and until then remember to brush and floss every day.
Tongue Cleaning with your tooth brush helps get rid of bad breath.
For those who gag when brushing or using the tongue cleaner, form a fist with your non-dominant hand and it’ll help stop the gagging feeling.
Bad Breath Tip
Imagine going to your dentist and seeing this?!?
