According to the Hispanic Dental Association, there is an extreme shortage of Hispanic dentists available to deliver dental care to a historically underrepresented minority in the United States – namely Hispanics. This shortage is all the more alarming due to the disproportionate nature of practicing Hispanic dentists and Hispanic individuals applying to, attending, and graduating from dental schools across the nation. Dr. Noemi Cruz-Orcutt is one of the few dentists in the entire State of Iowa who speaks Spanish and English fluently and the only one, outside of the University of Iowa, that grew up in a Spanish speaking country. The ability to speak English and Spanish fluently, growing up in a Hispanic culture and being an excellent dentist provides her patients a truly comprehensive dental care experience. Spanish speaking patients routinely express their gratitude throughout their dental care to Dr. Cruz-Orcutt on how comforting it is to have a dentist that not only speaks their language but also understands their background and culture. “I enjoy when I am able to share my native language and culture with patients that otherwise might not receive the dental care they need,” states Dr. Noemi Cruz-Orcutt of Mint Springs Dentistry. “I understand there is a disparity among Hispanic patients being able to have access to care and I want to make sure they know I am here to provide the dental care they need and ensure that they feel comfortable at the same time.” Born and raised in Puerto Rico, Dr Noemi Cruz-Orcutt completed a Bachelor of Science degree in Natural Sciences as a Valedictorian at the University of Puerto Rico. Dr. Cruz-Orcutt earned her Doctor of Dental Surgery degree from the University of Iowa College of Dentistry. While receiving her dental education, she was involved in dental research and was an active leader in various dental organizations, including the Hispanic Dental Association. Due to her academic performance and commitment to patient care, she was inducted into the Omicron Kappa Upsilon (OKU) National Honor Dental Society, in addition to receiving other dental awards. She practiced as an Associate Dentist in Charlottesville, Virginia prior to moving to Mason City, Iowa. Dr. Cruz-Orcutt is also a member of the Academy of General Dentistry, the American Dental Association, Seattle Study Club, Spear Education Study Club and The Dawson Academy. Dr. Cruz-Orcutt lives in Mason City with her husband Dr. Kevin Orcutt and their two children, Lukas and Adaliz. The family enjoys the outdoors with their dog Raleigh, photography, traveling, music and the company of friends and family. Mint Springs Dentistry is accepting new patients and provides excellent comprehensive dental care for the entire family at their 851 South Taft Avenue location in Mason City, IA.

A seminar on the topic, ‘Pain Management in Dental Practice - Strategies for Prevention & Management' was organized for dental professionals by Advanced Periodontics and Implantology (API), a premier clinical and education center in Michigan, spearheaded by Dr. Monish Bhola (DDS, MSD), a Diplomate of the American Board of Periodontology, on September 15, 2017 in Livonia, Michigan from 9am-12pm. Dr. Bhola, who is the Director of API, stated, “API organized this CE seminar in accordance with the change in rules enforced by Licensing & Regulatory Affairs Body (LARA) with effect from 1st September 2017. According to the new guidelines, dentists in Michigan now have to complete a minimum of three hours of pain and symptom management education instead of one hour, for all future renewals of their license.” Dr. Daniel E Becker, DDS (Associate Director of Education for the General Practice Dental Residency at Miami Valley Hospital in Dayton, Ohio) conducted the CE seminar and covered four main topics in his talk, namely ‘Overview of preemptive versus rescue pain management’, ‘Non opioid and opioid analgesics in dental practice’, ‘Use of Glucocorticosteroids before and during special surgical procedures’ & ‘Local anesthetics’. Dr. Becker, who lectures extensively for dental organizations & universities on topics related to pharmacology, dental pain, sedation & anesthesia told the audience, “American Dental Association (ADA) states that dentists should consider Non-Steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) as the first line of treatment for the management of acute pain. Dental pain belongs to the category of musculoskeletal pain and for several decades, studies have repeatedly shown that at conventional dosages NSAIDs are generally superior to opioids for managing musculoskeletal pain. Therefore, whenever an elaborate surgical procedure is planned, optimum blood levels of an NSAID should be established preoperatively in patients while their dental and oral tissues are still under the effect of anesthesia. Such preventive pain management can save patients from desperate attempts for seeking rescue pain relief.” Dr. Becker informed the audience, “According to ADA, dentists should recognize multi modal strategies for management of acute postoperative dental pain in order to avoid the use of opioid analgesics (pain killers)." He added, “A better understanding of the non opioid options available in dental pain management can help curb the growing epidemic of over-prescription of opioids by physicians and dentists. Patients should be given optimal doses of NSAIDs round the clock at regular intervals; the combination of acetaminophen and an NSAID provides greater analgesic effect and can prevent the need for opioids. An opioid should be added only if pain persists even after the dose of an NSAID, acetaminophen, or their combination has been optimized. Such a practice will decrease the amount of opioid required to only a fraction of the maximum permissible doses.” Dr. Becker also stated, “It has been found that Glucocorticosteroids are very effective in reducing post-surgical pain & inflammation. Local anesthetics are the most effective method of managing pain associated with dental treatment with Lidocaine being the most commonly used local anesthetic in the United States.” The seminar was attended by over two hundred dental professionals and was highly appreciated. Dr. Bhola, who is among the top faculty members at the Zimmer Biomet Institute (http://www.zimmerbiometdental.com), a state of the art training facility with locations all over the world stated, “API strives to elevate the knowledge and skills of its members through regular CE programs. In 2017, it has offered twenty hours of CE Lectures in periodontics, dental implants, restorative dentistry, pain management & infection control apart from hands-on courses (on site and off site). Dr. Bhola (DDS, MSD) was a Professor & Director of Graduate Periodontics & Implantology at The University of Detroit Mercy, School of Dentistry. He is the recipient of the prestigious Bud and Linda Tarrson Fellowship award given by the American Academy of Periodontology Foundation and a fellow of the Pierre Fauchard Academy and the OKU Nu Nu Chapter, a National Honor Dental Society. He has been voted Detroit Hour Magazine’s Top dentist every year since 2010 and is a world expert and authority when it comes to bone grafting and dental implants. He conducts several training courses in Periodontics and Implantology for dentists from all over the world (http://www.drbhola.com) and has over thirty peer-reviewed publications in leading dental journals. API is becoming one of the premier dental institutes in Michigan with its unparalleled content and quality of continuing education courses.
