A dentist created a cake shield to protect birthday guests from germs

frank lampard

Even in the era of COVID-19, Florida-based dentist Billy Kay wants people to be able to blow on their birthday cake and let guests eat it, too.

Kay, who lives in Boca Raton and specializes in prosthetic dentistry, said he often ruminated on how many germs are spread when people blow out their birthday candles. For about 30 years, the grandfather of four thought about different ways to protect cakes from the invisible spit particles that most party goers chose to ignore. In March, however, a lot more people were suddenly very concerned about germs with onset of the pandemic. So Kay decided to create a prototype out of one of his many ideas he had been storing away.

By April, he had manufactured the very first Top It Cake Shield and now the product is set to officially launch online Sept. 15.

The cake shields come in three different

NEW BRUNSWICK, NJ — While New Jersey residents have cautiously started going to hair salons, outdoor restaurants and doctor’s appointments again, many are still reluctant to see one person in particular: The dentist.

The American Dental Association said they expect dental revenues to be down by as much as 40 percent by the end of 2020. And as recently as two weeks ago, the American Dental Association said they “respectfully yet strongly disagree” with advice from the World Health Organization, telling people to avoid routine dental care due to coronavirus risk.

Cecile Feldman, the dean of the Rutgers School of Dental Medicine in Newark, said she thinks seeing a dentist is actually low risk according to current knowledge of the virus.

Polymers prevent potentially hazardous mist during dentist visit

Polymers prevent potentially hazardous mist during dentist visit
Using polyacrylic acid solution in water as irrigation fluid in dentistry reduces risk of aerosolized pathogens. Here, the polymer is shown forming snakelike threads near the tip of a vibrating cavitron scaler (top), and it forms spools near the tip of a turbine-driven dental drill. In both cases, aerosolization is completely eliminated. Credit: Images created by Jevon Plog.

Researchers at the University of Illinois at Chicago couldn’t stop thinking about the spinning, vibrating tools in a dentist’s office that turn water into mist and send it flying into the air. If that mist contains a virus or some other pathogen, it is a health hazard for dentists and patients.


In a paper published this week in Physics of Fluids, Alexander Yarin and his colleagues discovered that the forces of a vibrating tool or dentist’s drill are no match for the viscoelastic properties of food-grade polymers, such as polyacrylic acid,

Even in a normal year, I try my best to avoid the dentist. It’s not just the physical pain, but the financial hit my bank account takes each visit.

With coronavirus raging through Southeast Los Angeles, the last place I wanted to be was in a dental chair in a Cudahy strip mall with my mouth uncovered and wide open. But that’s where I was Tuesday, staring at a wall painted like a pink princess castle, wondering how much money I was losing on this risky business.

Thinking about making a dentist appointment? What you need to know

frank lampard

Thinking about scheduling a dentist appointment? The World Health Organization encourages a remote consultation first, and that any routine non-essential care (like checkups or cleanings) be delayed until there is a sufficient reduction in COVID-19 transmission rates.

Though if rates are low in your area and you’re overdue for an appointment, reach out to your dentist to discuss. According to Dr. Chad Gehani, the president of the American Dental Association (ADA), dental health is “vital to overall health.” Though it’s important to note that a visit may look a little different these days.

“Many times people do not comprehend that teeth are attached to the body, to the bone and head, and that it is as important to take care of their teeth as their organs,” he said. “Most of the dental diseases are preventable and, if detected in an early stage, they are very inexpensive and they are very
