My dentist boss no longer tells me he appreciates me
Dentistry IQ
QUESTION: I'm a dental assistant who has worked for my dentist for more than two years. For the first year of my employment, the dentist complimented me everyday. This treatment felt great and made me strive my hardest. I know I'm a great assistant and I’ve continued working to my very best, yet I rarely get praised anymore. I've brought this up to the dentist and he says I'm the best. But I long for words of praise. I find myself feeling very bitter. Any suggestions?

Patient-centered brochure examines antibiotics in dentistry
American Dental Association
The American Dental Association patient education brochure Antibiotics and Dental Treatment (W307) can help to clarify who should take antibiotics before dental treatment and who should not. In dentistry, where the long observed standard has been to prescribe antibiotics for dental patients with orthopedic implants and for those with certain heart conditions (as a precaution to ward off infective endocarditis), it's a better move, in most cases, to bypass antibiotic prophylaxis, experts say.
