While many in New York state were anxiously awaiting word as to whether public and private schools teaching grades K through 12 in New York state would be allowed to reopen this fall, some institutions of higher learning were far along in the reopening process. At Touro College of Dental Medicine at New York Medical College, third-year dental students on July 20 began making the rounds of treating patients at Touro Dental Health, a facility with 109 dental treatment chairs used not only in teaching dental students their craft, but also as a dental clinic serving the community with affordable care.
Class of 2020 alum Dr. Justin Goff has been chosen by the American Dental Association to be a featured contributor for their online series, “My New Dentist Life.” Each year, the series follows the experiences of a promising young dentist upon graduating from dental school.
September is Dental Infection Control Awareness Month (DICAM), and this week’s focus is on Personal Protective Equipment (PPE)!⠀ ⠀ At Touro Dental Health (TDH), proper PPE usage has always been important to us. Masks, gowns, gloves and goggles have always been a requirement for our students, faculty, and clinical staff - all of whom are trained in proper donning and doffing.⠀ ⠀ With COVID-19, we increased our PPE standard to include face shields that are manufactured in our onsite lab as well as head and shoe coverings. Additionally, all of our TDH personnel are fit tested and receive custom fitted masks to ensure maximum protection and comfort⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ #tourocollegeofdentalmedicine #dentalschool #dentists #dentistry #dentistsofinstagram #dentistsofinsta #smile #teethpeople #futuredds #futuredentists #dentallife #dds #Westchester #westchesterliving #lohud #picoftheday #oralhealth #DICAM20
Meet D1 Daniel Brock! Coming to TCDM all the way from Henderson, Nevada, Daniel attended Brigham Young University in Utah, graduating with a B.S. in Exercise Science.⠀ ⠀ Daniel served on a two-year long mission to Uruguay with the LDS church, an experience, he shares, inspired him to peruse a career in dentistry⠀ ⠀ “I got to spend time with people in some very humble circumstances who unfortunately didn't have access to healthcare. Seeing how much oral health can impact a person's confidence made me realize that I wanted to help people feel confident in their smile,” says Daniel.⠀ ⠀ In regard to what dental field/specialty he may want to practice, Daniel shares that he is interested general dentistry but that he is also fascinated by Periodontics and Oral Surgery. ⠀ ⠀ In addition to knowing Spanish and Portuguese, another fun fact about this future D.D.S. is that he has yet to have a cavity!⠀ . ⠀ .⠀ .⠀ ⠀ #tourocollegeofdentalmedicine #dentalschool #dentists #dentistry #dentistsofinstagram #futuredentists ⠀ #smile #dentallife #teethpeople #dds #lohud #Westchester #westchesterliving #picoftheday #oralhealth #futuredds
