OSHA & HIPAA Seminar.

Every year, after the craziness of the Holidays, our office participates in the annual OSHA & HIPAA training seminar hosted by Harris Biomedical. Thankfully, we don’t have to travel too far as it usually takes place in the Maggiano’s in Tysons Corner, literally a 5-minute drive from our office. Harris Biomedical has this seminar every year in the Tysons Corner area. Look out for their flyers in the mail around the beginning of the year. Check out their website for more information: http://harrisbiomedical.net/.
The four-hour seminar consisted of a two-hour session dedicated to OSHA and another two hours dedicated to HIPAA. Breakfast was included! For those who don’t know what OSHA or HIPAA means, here’s the breakdown.
The Occupational Safety and Health Act, aka OSHA, are a collection of regulations that are managed and required in most states, Virginia being one of them, to guarantee employee safety and good health. OSHA, or referred in Virginia as VOSH, instructs employers how to…

Does flossing really matter?

Recently, we came upon an article, 17 Health Advances Every Woman Deserves to Know released by the editors of the Harvard Woman's Health Watch.

One of the 17 concerns was: does flossing really matter? The simple answer: yes, it does. It reads as followed: A recent report has some people thinking there's no benefit to flossing. But before you toss your floss, consider this: flossing helps prevent periodontal disease, which is linked to higher risk of diabetes, heart disease and dementia. What's more, gum disease is also associated with a greater risk of serious degenerative diseases. To avoid periodontal disease make sure you brush your teeth at least twice a day AND floss before bedtime, eat a healthy diet and have regular dental check ups.

We often get patients that unfortunately don't floss or we get patients that say they do but their teeth tell different stories. Endodontists are known for being the heroes and heroines of saving teeth so we can't express enough h…

Steven Tyler was in town!

Back in April, we received a Wolf Trap brochure for summer concerts in our office. As Dr. Choby scanned the brochure, her eyes landed on the concert on June 21st. Immediately, she called Wolf Trap and bought a ticket. You might be asking: what her very excited to order so quickly? It was Steven Tyler. After missing out on the Sting concert that was earlier in the year, she took full advantage og her Wolf Trap membership. After a five chat with the Wolf Trap representative, she was set to see Steven Tyler.

After two full months of root canals treatments, emergencies, having our office laptop stolen and other personal things going on, Dr. Choby was anxious for the 21st to come along. And let me tell you, the wait was worth it! Last night was amazing! Especially after a long day at work with back to back treatments.

The show kicked off at 8PM, with a group of women playing a few songs as an introduction to Steven Tyler. The women were great! They were the perfect group to introduce the m…
