This reflection acts as my fourth reflection since I have started my internship at Comfort Dental under the Guidance of Dr. Trino Nuno. The semester is coming to an end, and I have enjoyed my time at Comfort Dental., I previously had a clinical and administrative internship at Smile Works Dentistry in Rockwall, Texas and I can now tell you that my experience at these two dental practices was incredibly different. At Smile Works, I quickly got used to the way the practice was run because it was not that complicated and I only had one doctor’s schedule to manage. However, at Comfort Dental I still struggle with managing day-to-day functions. The reason I struggle is that Comfort Dental has three doctors and a lot more staff. Also, the computer system that I mastered at Smile Works is not the same computer system that they use at Comfort Dental. I got the chance to use all to same skills in this internship. I answered phones, checked that patient’s insurance plans are eligible to be billed and scanned paper documents into a hard drive.
Last February, the Supreme Court issued its opinion in North Carolina State Board of Dental Examiners v. Federal Trade Commission (Dental Examiners). The case concerned the Board’s decision to stop teeth whitening services by non-dentists in the state. The Federal Trade Commission alleged that the Board had violated antitrust laws by attempting to limit competition by its teeth whitening decision. State entities such as the Board generally were thought to have immunity from antitrust laws, but the Supreme Court’s decision reversed this long-held belief and found that state boards could be held liability if certain conditions were met. The major condition was that the board be made up of a majority of active market
Regardless of your political stance, dental care is a service that all people should have access to, privately, or publicly.

A preliminary question is what are antitrust laws? They are a series of laws designed to protect competition in the marketplace. Antitrust laws prevent restrains of trade or commerce. Black’s Law Dictionary defines antitrust laws as “[t]he body of law designed to protect trade and commerce from restraints, monopolies, price-fixing, and price discrimination.” The main law regulating antitrust is the Sherman Antitrust Act, which makes it illegal for individuals or groups to restrain trade or commerce. Besides the Sherman Act, the other law that factors into Dental Examiners is the Federal Trade Commission Act, which prohibits any “[u]nfair methods of competition.” This law serves as the basis for the majority of Federal Trade

The purpose of the Maine Board of Dental Examiners is to provide protection of the health and safety of the citizens of Maine. There is a multitude of topics covered during monthly board meetings from acting as a judicial branch for cases involving dental professionals to approving licensures applications. The January meeting consisted of a variety of topics that precipitated the use of the codes of ethics to make decisions. Subjects discussed at the meeting that involve ethical decision making pertained to licensure renewals/interviews for licensures and
The Greater New York Dental Convention held on 26th November 2017 focused on issues relating to dental hygiene and practices. There were some exhibitions in that convention displaying various dental diseases, hygiene practices, and dental technologies. One of the exhibits that caught my eye was the exhibition by Amanda Vera and Tiffany Andron from New York City College of Technology. First of all, their poster was well designed with a well selected them for the poster which was visually attractive. The color schemes were appealing to the eye and could easily attract passersby. The layout of the poster was also clean with words having a clear font, not too dull.
Dental Examiners is likely to have a significant impact on both antitrust law and on state governments. State boards covered under Dental Examiners may face antirust liability in the future, and there remains a lot of uncertainty about what boards are covered under Dental Examiners. First, we will need to walk through what impact Dental Examiners will have, and what legal requirements it sets out. Second, we will need to examine what Kansas Boards will likely be effected under Dental Examiners. Third, we need to review what approaches other states have taken to address Dental Examiners. Finally, we need to examine what possible approaches the State can take to address Dental Examiners.

CAI has already seen the adverse effects of a member with his own agenda, but a bad board member is far less potent in a larger group than in a smaller group. It also allows for the board to collect a multitude of members with a wide variety of skills that could improve the organization. With more members with fewer responsibilities, each member could hone their skills and accomplish their set goals more efficiently (Worth, 2009, p. 115).
