The dentist is available to see you now. It’s safer than you think –

For the past several months, many of us have been fearful of leaving home, let alone visiting the dentist. But as restrictions have eased in the past weeks, many health leaders are encouraging patients to add dental visits to their agendas again.

Dental offices were closed across the United States and Costa Rica after being advised in March by the American Dental Association and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention to close their practices to all but emergency care. Some remain closed, but most dental clinics are now open and ready for business, albeit with new safety protocols to keep patients and staff safe from the risk of viral contagion.

In Costa Rica, the restrictions against routine care have been loosened, allowing patients to attend dental appointments. Is it really safe to go to the dentist now?

“The concern about the risk of transmission of COVID-19 during a visit

Apple’s Connectivity, Fitness And Services

No iPhone 12 – but pretty much everything else.

The question for Apple is: Will the slew of offerings announced this week be enough to bring new users into its ever-expanding ecosystem, and also keep current consumers, well, consuming?

On Tuesday (Sept. 15), Apple unveiled a slew of watches and services in a bid to give a tailwind to hardware sales and boost its services business.

We saw announcements tied to the Apple Watch Series 6, the Apple Watch SE, bundles tied to Apple One and the Apple Fitness+.

At a high level, the Apple event underscored the convergence of devices and a wide range of services to be consumed over those devices – centering in this case on health, music and connectivity in general (and some operating system updates).

Perhaps no surprise, in the age of the pandemic, is the health pitch.

A dentist has been sentenced to 12 years in prison for nearly 50 charges including reckless endangerment and unlawful dental acts, after he filmed himself extracting a patient’s tooth while on a hoverboard.

Seth Lookhart, from Anchorage, Alaska, was found guilty by a jury in January on 46 charges including Medicaid fraud, embezzlement, reckless endangerment and unlawful dental acts.

Anchorage Superior Court Judge Michael Wolverton said on Monday that Lookhart put multiple people’s lives at risk by sedating them for extended periods of time.

Mr Wolverton said: “In reviewing all this over and over again, I have a visceral response – you darn near killed some people.”

According to local newspaper, Anchorage Daily News, a former employee told investigators in 2017, when charges were filed against Lookhart, that the dentist was performing more intravenous sedation on his patients than necessary to boost his profits.

Second, although Fitness Plus isn’t yet available, you’ll be able to redeem the offer later this year when the service launches.

Yes, it’s safe to go to the dentist

  • There has been no evidence of coronavirus transmission in dental offices since many reopened in May.
  • Dentists have universal precautions in place to prevent the transmission of any infectious disease.
  • Oral health has a cascading effect on overall health, so it’s important to keep up with your cleanings and preventive dental care.

Some people might be hesitant to visit the dentist during the coronavirus pandemic, especially after the World Health Organization suggested not to in an August announcement.

However, it’s actually a low-risk activity for the patient, said Amesh Adalja, an infectious disease expert at the Johns Hopkins University Center for Health Security.

“I would be more worried about my dentist than I would myself contracting the virus there,” Adalja told Insider.

Dentists aren’t too concerned either. After the WHO’s recommendation to delay routine dental care in certain situations due to COVID-19, the American Dental Association released a statement saying

Zwift raises $450 million for gamified fitness to cycle past Peloton

Zwift has raised an astounding $450 million to expand its online fitness platform for runners and cyclists in direct competition with the likes of Peloton, Apple, and others.
