There are great benefits of locum tenen work, both on the employee and employer side. Locum tenens can fill in for as little or as many days as possible for a variety of reasons. In certain situations, they might even be requested to become a permanent replacement. It is important that we understand the benefits for both the employee and employer to see if it is the right fit for you. No matter what point you are at in your career, considering to be a locum tenens provider is a great option. Many join in during transitional periods in their career or at a time when they are not ready for the pressure to run their own office. Becoming a locum tenens provider can help you advance in your career as a dental professional. According to Barton Associates the main reason why providers go down the locum tenens provider route is because of freedom. It allows you to work in different locations and facilities before you make a commitment to start your own practice, retire or join a practice. It is also a great way to manage a work life balance. You can work as often or as little as wanted. Being able to have freedom in your schedule is highly desired by many individuals. There is great flexibility in locum tenens work. It is also often considered a way to earn extra income. Some individuals even do locum tenens work for pre-retirement planning. Perhaps they are retired but are not quite ready to call it quits. Some other instances where you can utilize locum tenens work include vacations, staffing training times, while searching for permanent staff members and overall challenging situations in the office. No matter what your current situation is, locum tenens opportunities are sure to fit your needs. Utilizing a locum tenens provider can help to keep your facility prepared during both planned and unplanned leaves of absence. It allows staff members to have job stability during times where the primary dentist cannot be in the office. Since patient care is most important, locum tenens providers are there to make sure your patients are always receiving great care. Here at Complete Dental Staffing, we make sure that we hire qualified individuals to fill the job. Our locum tenens understand staffing might be needed within short notice, which will help for last minute gaps to be filled. Overall, locum tenens provide great benefits for dental professionals. Flexibility is one of the largest driving forces for employees. For dental offices, it is great to know that CDS can help fill the gaps when needed. Feel free to reach out to us to receive more information or to discuss locum tenens work further. We look forward to hearing from you. Source: Why Work Locum Tenens? | Barton Associates. (n.d.).

Did You Know?
With oral health being spotlighted this month, it is especially important to understand your overall oral health. That is why we have gathered information for you to share with your patients so they can increase their understanding of oral health. Feel free to share this information on your professional web pages or to print out for your offices to share with your patients directly.
It is noted that poor oral health can affect the whole body. There are very simple guidelines that can help for us to eliminate and prevent poor oral health. These include brushing your teeth 2 times a day with fluoride toothpaste, replacing your toothbrush every 3 – 4 months, flossing once a day and visiting the dentist every 6 months. These tasks may seem easy, but many people are affected by poor oral health. The following are facts about oral health.
- 1. More than 1 in 4, or 27%, of adults have untreated tooth decay.
- 2. Nearly half of all adults, 46%, aged 30 years or older show signs of gum disease.
- 3. Severe gum disease affects about 9% of adults.
With this knowledge, it is important to properly take care of ourselves to prevent diseases. In order to do so we must look at all areas of our lives. Lifestyle choices can play a large part in our oral health as well. It is also important to talk to your dental professionals to see what else can be done to take care of your oral health.

Each year on March 20th, World Oral Health Day is celebrated across the globe. This celebration was originally declared in 2007 but was not put into full effect until 2013. There is great correlation between the celebration and the certain date it falls on, being the 20th of the month. The reasoning’s are as followed.
- Seniors must have a total of 20 natural teeth at the end of their life to be considered healthy.
- Children should possess 20 baby teeth.
- Healthy adults must have a total of 32 teeth and 0 dental cavities. Expressed on a numerical basis this can be translated as 3/20, hence March 20th.
The purpose of this celebration is to bring about overall awareness of improving oral health. Below are facts about oral health. It is important to know the facts so we can better take care of ourselves.

November 1st is National Brush Day!
The ADA, The American Dental Association, asked dentists if they pass out tricks or treats for Halloween and 76% of the dentists who participated indicated that they do hand out candy for Halloween! Some pair this with a toothbrush and reminder to brush, but not all!
If you are looking to pass out more teeth-friendly alternatives, check out some of these options:
Glow Sticks! Who doesn’t love glow sticks!
Trick-or-Treating Beverages! Pass out some decorated water bottles! A great thing for the trekking trick-or-treaters to have!
Pumpkin Oranges! Decorate oranges with fun pumpkin faces! Be sure to use non-toxic markers.
Sugarfree Chewing Gum! Make sure it is okay for the kiddo, but sugar-free gum is a great addition to the Halloween bucket! Research shows that chewing sugarfree gum after eating (meals or candy), helps prevent cavities by stimulating saliva production!
Tricky Trinkets! Spooky fun could include spider rings, vampire teeth, witch fingers, and whatnot! Fake mustaches or funky glasses too!
Crafty things! Stickers, stamps, pencils, etc all make for great fun treats for your little visitors!
Bubbles! Playdoh! Notepads! Mini-Flashlights (perhaps to make a few future dentists!)!
