Thoughts on those patients with cracked teeth walking into your practice

Dentistry is back in the news again -- and the reason why is very interesting.

In a recent New York Times article, Tammy Chen, DDS, discussed how she saw more tooth fractures come into her practice in a six-week span after she reopened her doors following COVID-19 than she had in the prior six years.

Dr. Chen offered several reasons as to why this was happening, including stress brought on by the pandemic.

Here's my guess: If Dr. Chen is seeing this in her practice, you and I are seeing it in our practices as well. What do we do about it? And how do we make sure our patients are not only taken care of in that visit but also in the future? That's what I talk about in my video below.
