“It’s not worth doing if you’re not going to do it right” is a principle that Dr Krauss and Bakersfield Smile Design strive to live by. After earning multiple scholarships to attend Loma Linda University School of Dentistry, Dr. Krauss applied that principle and received multiple awards before graduating in 2001 with a Doctor of Dental Surgery (DDS) Degree. He is a member of the Amarican Dental Association, the California Dental Association and the Tri-County Dental Association. When Bakersfield dentist, Dr Krauss, began his education in Dentistry, he made a commitment to excellence which is reflected in by his commitment to stay at the forefront of his field by frequently attending educational conventions, seminars and training courses in order to stay current on the latest advancements in the world of dentistry.
Over the past 10 year Dr. Krauss has remained at the forefront of technology in order to provide his patients with a less painful dental care experience. His continuing education includes advanced training in implant dentistry, full-mouth reconstruction as well as keeping up with the latest innovations in cosmetic dentistry.
“Through the latest advancements in dental technology just about any dental issue with a patients teeth or smile can be corrected; however even the latest high-tech procedures can result in below average results unless they are used by an experienced, skilled and artistic dentist with a keen insight into a patients wants and needs. One of the reasons I love being a dentist is that the possibilities with your teeth are limitless. The high end technology that is available today enables me to give you an amazing, healthy, natural
Northam (D) said he was lifting the ban on elective surgeries he imposed five weeks ago, allowing doctors, dentists and veterinarians to resume seeing patients on a non-emergency basis beginning Friday.
That ban, which applied to hospitals, outpatient surgery centers, dental offices and veterinarians amid concerns that the state’s hospitals would be overwhelmed by a surge in coronavirus cases, was originally scheduled to expire last week, but Northam extended it to May 1.
On Wednesday he confirmed that he would not extend it further, touting the decision as proof that the commercial and social restrictions he has imposed have successfully slowed the spread of the virus.
Northam said the change also was possible because of the work that state and medical officials have done to secure more capacity for treating and testing coronavirus patients. But he warned that if cases surge again, it might be necessary to reinstate restrictions.
Meanwhile, Sen. Chris Van Hollen (D-Md.) pleaded with Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) to impose safeguards when the chamber resumes its work in Washington next week to avoid risking the spread of the virus.
In his letter, Van Hollen said that recalling Senate lawmakers and staff members to Capitol Hill without precautions that maximize telework, minimize support staff, and institute temperature checks and rapid testing would undermine stay-at-home orders imposed across the District, Maryland and Virginia.
“While the Senate has critical work to do on behalf of the American people, we must be attentive to our role in controlling the spread of COVID-19 and have clear plans in place to ensure the safety of the staff and Capitol Police who support our work and care for the Capitol,” the letter states. “. . . I am ready to get back to the Capitol but you have an obligation to ensure the safety of all the staff that work there.”
McConnell’s office declined to comment beyond referring to a radio interview in which the senator said that “it’s essential for senators to carefully man our [stations] and support those folks who are out there on the front lines.”
Van Hollen called the D.C. region a “covid-19 hotspot.” The District, Maryland and Virginia on Wednesday reported 106 new deaths and 1,471 new infections — bringing their total number of coronavirus cases past 39,000 and total deaths to 1,818.
The District, which Van Hollen noted was shortchanged in a federal relief act, is scrambling to manage the pandemic — including limiting service for the Metro rail and bus lines that many Senate staffers use to commute to work.
D.C. officials said Wednesday that covid-19 restrictions and closures might need to be extended another three months under the “most stringent” scenario.
In a town hall Wednesday on reopening the city, District officials said a less stringent approach to reopening would phase in reopening in two to three months. The most stringent option would extend current closures for three months.

Do you have many patients with peri-implant mucositis? Do you know what is more important when treating these patients? Here are five tips:
1st Advice: Pay Special Attention To Risk Groups
Peri-implant mucositis is very frequent. Systematic work together shows that more than 63% of patients with implants consulted suffer from it. Smokers suffer especially. In the case of patients with total prostheses supported by implants, more plaque is usually found in the support elements than in patients with partial prostheses. Therefore, pay special attention to these patients at risk.
2nd Tip: Avoid Going Further
If peri-implant mucositis occurs, the situation may get even worse, and there is a risk of periimplantitis. To avoid this, it is necessary to reduce mucositis, since subsequent damage can be very serious. A measure of known efficacy is the mechanical removal of bacterial deposits. The additional use of selected preparations for the control of germs can contribute to the success of the treatment.
3rd Tip: Perform Periodic Reviews
Periodic reviews are essential in the case of patients with peri-implant mucositis. They check if the peri-implant tissue shows symptoms of inflammation and if there is a recession. It should also be carefully observed if plaque has accumulated in the implant.
Making bacterial deposits visible with a fluorescent indicator liquid (e.g., Plaque test) helps to advise the patient as to the causes. The risk areas, which require special attention during brushing, are clearly identified. The motivating success of dental hygiene is easily demonstrated. Similarly, you can explain the possibilities and usefulness of professional dental cleaning. Thus your patients will be more willing to invest in these measures.
4th Advice: Perform A Professional Cleaning
Periodic professional cleaning of the teeth should take care and maintain in the long term the quality of the surfaces of the more or less resistant materials and the hard tissue. This is true both in the case of implant treatments and for restorations or natural tooth substance. It is essential to avoid irreversible scraping with an unsuitable cleaner, either with prophylactic pastes or very abrasive cleaning powders. On the one hand, microorganisms settle earlier on rough surfaces. On the other, resin or ceramic restorations lose their aesthetic shine and tend more to discoloration.
5th Advice: Oral Care According To The Problem
The personal oral care is very important for oral health and long – term conservation of implant treatments. It is even more important when a mucositis has already occurred. Similarly, the depth of the users’ bags was reduced. During the entire application period, no stains or changes in flavor were observed. The use of the mild flavor gel was high. An oral care gel should be easy to use. Thus it can be easily integrated into the daily brushing routine.

Whitening procedures have effectively restored the smile of people with stained, dull, or discolored teeth.
Before development of dental implants, dentures were the only alternative to replacing a missing tooth or teeth.
In just two or three dental visits, a veneer can reverse years of stains caused by foods, caffeine and tobacco use.

Irwin Smigel, a pioneer of aesthetic dentistry who brightened the smiles of celebrities like Elizabeth Taylor, Tony Bennett, Jimmy Fallon and Bruce Willis, died on Monday at his home in Manhattan. He was 92.
The cause was complications of pneumonia, said his son, Robert Smigel, a comedian and screenwriter and the voice of the puppet Triumph the Insult Comic Dog.
Working from his office on Madison Avenue, Dr. Smigel (pronounced SMY-gell), a second-generation dentist, advanced two techniques that transformed the appearance of teeth in countless patients beginning in the 1970s.
One was laser whitening, in which a laser beam activates a chemical bleaching agent applied to the teeth; Dr. Smigel helped develop and popularize it.
The other was a bonding technique, which had been used for fillings; he applied it to dental imperfections using layers of laminates and veneers.
Dr. Smigel credited a number of colleagues, among them Dr. Michael Buonocore and Dr. Raphael Bowen, with also making breakthroughs in the bonding process.
In bonding, instead of gold or porcelain caps being applied, the tooth is etched with a buffered acid solution and then painted with a liquid acrylic. A composite resin is then patted on, shaped and hardened for 20 seconds with a beam of either white or ultraviolet light.
Bonding was originally known as acid-etching, Dr. Smigel told Global Health Nexus, a publication of the New York University College of Dentistry, in 2004. But he stopped using that term in 1975, he said, after he was interviewed by the New York radio personality Long John Nebel.
Recalling that interview, Dr. Smigel said: “During a commercial break, he said: ‘People will be frightened by the thought of acid used in their mouths. Why not call it bonding instead?’ And it’s been known as bonding ever since.”
Dr. Smigel once demonstrated the technique on “The Mike Douglas Show,” enlisting a man from the television studio audience to undergo it.
Dr. Smigel attracted patients from all over the world and had continued to practice until about two years ago.
He and his wife, Lucia Smigel, who survives him, also developed a whitening toothpaste called Supersmile.
“The eyes may be the soul of the face, but the mouth is the first thing people look at,” Dr. Smigel told New York magazine in 1981. “Now bonding has given us the possibility of instant transformation, since it can be done in a matter of hours, not days and years.”
He added, “Nothing will have the emotional impact on the public that bonding will.”
Irwin Elliot Smigel was born on Oct. 9, 1924, in Manhattan, the son of Dr. Sebastian Smigel and the former Bella Soloway. He graduated from Stuyvesant High School, New York University and the N.Y.U. College of Dentistry.
In addition to his wife, the former Lucia Shvetz, and his son, he is survived by a daughter, Bellanca Smigel Rutter, a lawyer for Supersmile, and six grandsons.
Dr. Smigel founded the American Society for Dental Aesthetics in 1977. Two years later, he wrote
San Antonio – A Northwest Side dentist said he welcomed Monday’s news from Gov. Greg Abbott about allowing dentists and doctors to reopen, but he admits it’s going to be a little bit of a process to open back up.
Dr. Willie Cantu, who owns Smile Solutions in the 13100 block of Northwest Military Drive, said he will probably will start seeing patients Monday.
Cantu said he and his staff will review their supply of personal protection equipment to make sure they have everything they need.
Texas Gov. Greg Abbott has released his plans to reopen Texas. Here’s what we know
He also said they will probably use their parking lot as a virtual waiting room to make sure social distancing is practiced.
“Today was welcome news, but we’ll have to certainly take baby steps to kind of get back started again because it’s been a bit,” Cantu said. “And, we got to get a lot of folks in, and hopefully everybody remains patient and understanding that we’re trying to work through, you know, some real difficult times with keeping everybody safe while still trying to treat patients.”
Cantu said he understands there will be some patients and staff members who may not be comfortable coming back but he said he’s ready to go back to work and his office will be operating in a way to keep his patients and staff safe.
COVID-19, the respiratory disease caused by the new virus, stands for coronavirus disease 2019. The disease first appeared in late December 2019 in Wuhan, China, but spread around the world in early 2020, causing the World Health Organization to declare a pandemic in March. The first case confirmed in the U.S. was in mid-January and the first case confirmed in San Antonio was in mid-February.

World of Horror is borne of strange circumstances, which might explain why the game itself is so unsettling. It plays out in five short stories set in a seaside village in 1980s Japan, whose residents are falling into mass madness while eldritch monsters rise from the seas. Eerie chiptune music plays throughout the game, frantic and propelling. People have gone missing, festering demons are walking the streets, and sushi chefs are serving omakase with human eyeballs on the platter.
Fight scenes are turn-based, forcing you to stare down your fears and face slaughter one move at a time. It’s your job to investigate, stay sane and complete all five segments before the world is consumed by this otherworldly horror — or before the twitchy scissor demon stabs you to death. Whichever comes first.
This rich world of terror is presented in 1-bit black-and-white scenes, as if a HyperCard application had a wriggling, six-legged baby with horror-manga legend Junji Ito’s complete anthology. Most developers create their games using tailor-made animation programs and game engine software, but Kozminski is doing all of his work in Paint, specifically because it’s a crappier program.
“Creating art in Paint is actually really inspiring and somehow relaxing,” Kozminski said. “The limits of the program really force you to get creative with it, which is a huge thing. I guess 1-bit black-and-white art is the closest I can get to simulate that comic book feel, too.”
Kozminski discovered Ito through one of his most celebrated works, the short story The Enigma of Amigara Fault. Kozminski randomly stumbled across a scanlation (a fan-uploaded manga scan) of The Enigma of Amigara Fault years ago, and the final panel was seared into his memory, featuring a grotesque, formerly-human creature emerging from thin cracks in a mountain, groaning, “DRR… DRR… DRR.”
Kozminski’s obsession with horror has more classical roots, as well. Back in 2004, when he was a teenager, he read Top Ten Horror Stories by Michael Cox, an anthology of age-appropriate versions of classic tales like The Pit and the Pendulum, The Hound of Baskervilles and Frankenstein. This was how he discovered HP Lovecraft, another clear influence on World of Horror, which sees the hideous rise of the Old Gods.
