Oral surgeon helps dentists

Dr. Andrew Chang of West Coast Oral Surgery, 9855 Erma Road, suite 100 in Scripps Ranch, is extending a helping hand to area dentists by installing protective Plexiglas shields on their counters during the coronavirus pandemic as they serve patients.

“When I first noticed the protective shields going up at Costco and the local grocery stores, I thought of going to Home Depot and seeing if they had Plexiglas that I could customize. … Then I went home and designed some brackets that would hold the shields in place at the front desk counters and any other counters,” Chang said.

He ran the idea by a dental colleague who liked it, so Chang installed a shield at his office.

“It was so well-received that I felt I should reach out to my other dental colleagues and offer them the same thing,” Chang explained. “So, I’ve been systematically going to dentists in the Scripps Ranch/Mira Mesa area and installing as many of these shields as I can.”

Since he started this project, he noticed Plexiglas has become rather rare, so he continues to scour Home Depot stores to find more.

As an oral surgeon, Chang has developed relationships with numerous local dentists, he said.

“I just wanted to do anything I could to help them reopen safely to protect not only patients, but themselves,” he said.

West Coast Oral Surgery, which remains fully open as an essential service, received a shipment of additional N95 masks from the U.S. Dental Triage Network, which they then donated to a local fire station.

“It was surprising how much it was needed. … They were really, really appreciative,” Chang said.

  50. I put money in placed a bet and now it won’t allow me to put it back to my card don’t fall for it, do not download this app it’s a scam Few types of betting are more time sensitive than sports betting, due to the ongoing and transitory nature of games and matches. It’s easy to miss out on betting opportunities simply because you get busy doing something else and forget. A retail sportsbook isn’t going to get on the horn and call you with a reminder to place a wager except (maybe) if you bet a ton of money. However, a sportsbook app can send you push notifications to jog your memory about bets you want to make or have made, regardless of how big your wager is or will be. BetMGM kept all the positives of the old playMGM app such as prop bets galore, and added more in-game betting options, colorful images for each betting market and a weekly promotional schedule. Betting is a breeze with its popup betslip that is hidden until you are ready to place your bet and constantly updating odds keep you in the game even after kickoff. If you haven’t checked out BetMGM in a while, it may be time to give the mobile app another look.
