Adults Can Join Famous Faces With Braces

Believe it or not, orthodontists continue to encounter adults who believe they are “too old” for braces.

As technology improves and braces become less visible and bulky, more adults appear willing to jump on the bandwagon- even famous adults.
Some orthodontists say that when treating adults, orthodontic treatment tends to accomplish more than just proper alignment of the teeth. They see big boosts in confidence and self image once they are finished with their treatment.

Technological advancements in orthodontics make it possible for more adults to correct malocclusions including spaces between teeth, underbites, crossbites, overbites and crooked or crowded teeth.

In addition to braces with smaller, clear brackets, systems such as Invisalign- a series of clear, custom-fit plastic aligners that gradually shift teeth into proper alignment- are popular among adults.

Another common option adults are attracted to is the Incognito system. Incognito braces are the only ones on the market that are entirely customized to the contours of each individual patient’s teeth. These braces are lingual, meaning they fit onto the back of the teeth. They are not noticeable when worn.

Most of the incognito braces providers, often use the treatment on adult professionals who want more comfortable, fast-acting treatment, but don’t want people to see that they are in orthodontic treatment. Musicians who play wind instruments, or anyone who feels self-conscious about wearing braces that are visible can be treated with Incognito braces.

Regardless of a patient’s age, orthodontic treatment can help maintain a healthier mouth, a more pleasing appearance and teeth that are more likely to last a lifetime, according to the SmileTalk article.

Some adults seek treatment to correct problems with the alignment of their jaws or teeth before those problems lead to more serious or additional damage. Other times, adults just want to feel more confident about their appearance, so they seek to correct cosmetic issues with their teeth that have bothered them for years.

It is important to note that even if orthodontic problems are viewed as cosmetic in nature; those problems could have the potential to cause damage over time. When teeth and jaws are out of alignment, they can cause premature wear, gum disease and advanced tooth decay. If left untreated long enough, you could require reconstructive treatment or surgery to correct the most serious problems.

eLearning – Start Treating Your Employees Like Adults

to benefit tremendously from the perpetual stream of advances on the technological front – provided, of course, that professionals within the healthcare industry are actually able to incorporate them into their practices. While some of the more complex tools and equipment require specific physician knowledge that only advanced training can eventually produce, there are certain basic advancements that are heavily contingent less so on sophisticated medical knowledge and more so on general employee compliance. One such example is the electronic health record, a development within the medical industry touted for its ability to improve patient care while streamlining the notion of managing a practice.

Though the cost of EHR implementation is perhaps the single greatest barrier to widespread adoption among medical providers, employee training can also pose a rather significant challenge to those tasked with the notion of getting their practices on board. After all, EHR training is a time-consuming prospect, and one that overworked employees don’t tend to welcome with open arms despite the career advancement opportunities it affords.

Despite the widespread availability of online learning management systems designed to teach healthcare employees the ins and outs of EHR utilization, many providers are still choosing to opt for in-person training and mandate that their employees follow suit. Unfortunately, this poses a problem from multiple angles – namely, the fact that classroom training is not only costly and inconvenient, but in some cases, downright unappealing to those forced to sit through those lectures.

The fact of the matter is that most employees within the healthcare field are used to spending their days doing hands-on work and helping patients, not taking notes during slideshows or sitting through classes. Furthermore, the archetypal classroom setting does not tend to represent an atmosphere with which most adult professionals today are comfortable. For this reason, providers who are truly intent on incorporating EHRs into their practices ought to strongly consider the benefits of eLearning as they relate to employee morale.

Forgetting about the fact that eLearning, on a whole, is cheaper than in-person training, one can’t argue that employees are far more likely to embrace the notion of logging onto their computers at home as opposed to spending their evenings and weekends in classes. Although professionals within the medical field are certainly used to the notion of career advancement courses, that doesn’t mean that they necessarily relish those after-hours sessions or weekend lectures.

Despite the fact that ongoing training can ultimately benefit the employees at hand, in the eyes of many professionals, in-person training is essentially akin to serving some sort of punishment sentence. As one ten-year veteran of the healthcare industry puts it, “I work hard all week to do my job well, so having to spend a weekend at a training course is kind of like serving adult detention.”

Whereas classroom training can easily produce some unfavorable connotations, eLearning, by contrast, offers the benefits of professional education in a much more “adult” setting. Rather than subject employees to set study hours, providers who invest in online or computer-based learning management systems can offer the people who work for them the opportunity to receive training on their own time, at their own pace, and in an environment with which they are far more at ease – their own homes. Additionally, those who allow their employees to undergo EHR training via eLearning are, in essence, sending a sign of good faith to the people who work relentlessly for them without nearly the same degree of glory or compensation. By simply trusting employees to pace themselves accordingly and take the training process seriously, providers are likely to notice a shift in attitude toward EHR adoption on a whole. And the better employees feel about the notion of learning to use EHRs, the better service they’ll be able to provide to their patients and bosses alike.

The Benefits of Using Professional Adults As Babysitters

As more and more members of the middle class find themselves being thrown out of work and unable to find a new job, on average, for more than 18 months, options for babysitters have never been greater. It might not normally occur to you to ask that professional-looking woman you see sitting at Starbucks if she would be interested in babysitting, but she just might be sitting there, day after day, sending out resumes and getting no response.

Rather than babysitters being solely the domain of teenage girls and “granny” types, hiring an adult from the professional world has lots of advantages. First, they are used to getting paid for doing a specific job, and are used to performance standards and taking direction. Second, they realize that while it is ideal to love one’s job, it’s also OK that there are parts of it that they don’t have to particularly be crazy about in order to do a good job. This type of perspective and maturity is not often found in teenagers, for example, who might be likely to quit if things get too difficult or occasionally unpleasant.

Third, adults who have recently left the workplace are often lonely for the company of other people, and also miss the structure of needing to be at a particular place at a particular time. In other words, they miss having positions of responsibility and authority, that they used to have in their jobs. Babysitting, even though it is in a home environment, means that they are responsible for the “childcare department” of your “company” (family), and as such will enjoy working hard and doing a terrific job. They are also usually comfortable discussing money and business arrangements, and can communicate with you in a business-like manner, including by email, text message, and social media platforms. This is a boon for the busy working parent who doesn’t have time to play “phone tag” with a sitter who spends too much time yakking on the phone.

Fourth, professional adults can be a wealth of information to your children about their careers and their experience in the workplace. They might direct your children to a particular course of study, or continue to act as a kind of mentor when they inevitably return to the working world. These people may be influential in the communities, and have a wealth of connections that even you, the parent, may not have. Who knows, since they’ve been spending so much time job-hunting, they might even know of a great job opening that would suit you better than them!

Babysitting may not have a glamorous title or offer a corner office and a fancy country-club membership. But adult professionals may welcome that informality and change of pace in looking after your children. They may even be so inspired by babysitting your children that they end up launching their own daycare center, or even train to become a nanny! So the next time you see a lonely professional forlornly emailing out resumes at your local library or coffee shop, ask them if they’d be interested in a new direction for their career: by looking after your children.
