A Very Lucky Argument to Lose
A Very Lucky Argument to Lose
Pick people at random, then tell their stories: That's what Steve Hartman does with Everbody Has A Story. Twelve hours after picking Guy Leith out of the phone book earlier this summer, Hartman was already searching for his story. Two days ago, Guy couldn't have made the back page of his local circular. Now, he was about to tell his story, in his own words, to all of America.Hartman spent a few hours talking with Guy, a 57-year-old retired park ranger who lives in Washington, Iowa. As often happens, Guy tells him that he doesn't have one. "I thought we're pretty average and I wouldn't have anything exciting to put on TV," says Guy, a soft-spoken man with a passion for fishing."I just love to fish. I fish in the spring, I fish in the fall, I fish in the winter. I like to fish all the time if I can," Guy says. Hartman asks whether he would rather give up fishing or his wife. Before Guy can answer, his wife Debbie chimes in: "That's not fair!"The two met at the dentist's office. "She was the one who cleaned my teeth," Guy says. He asked her out during an appointment, with his mouth full of dental instruments. Twelve years later, they now live happily with two children and two pets, his tenacious bird-hunting dog and her cocky cockatiel parrot.The first lead came over coffee, when Guy's stepdaughter Lindsey said she remembered seeing some old slides in the basement. Guy had been to war. "He doesn't talk about it much," saysDebbie.Sometimes the best stories are the ones no one talks about. Until, of course, some stranger comes to town and, starts asking, "What is this man's story?" Track Hartman's travels via the Everybody Has A Story archive. But the story of this 57-year-old retired park ranger is not about any one particular aspect of his life here today. It's about the simple fact that he is alive at all. Guy says he shouldn't really be here. "Sometimes I feel I have a little cat blood," he says, referring to the number of lives he's already used up. He says he knows he lost at least one off the coast of Alaska, when the crab boat he was working on almost sank. "I thought I was going to die," he says. He also crashed his motorcycle once at 80 miles an hour. He wasn't wearing a helmet, but didn't even break a bone.But his closest close call is the one that makes him wonder most. In 1966, Guy, then 22, had been in Vietnam barely half a year. His battalion was on a rescue mission right on te enemy border. Night was falling, and Guy and a friend were settling into a foxhole they had dug earlier that day. Two sergeants came along, and took the foxhole for themselves."So we argued a little bit, not much, walked over another 10 yards and started digging another foxhole," Guy remembers. It would prove to be the most important argument he ever lost."Then we started getting hit with 60-millimeter mortars and I think it was the foutth or fifth one that lit right in that foxhole that we had dug originally," Guy remembers. "And the two of them that were there didn't make it: the staff sergeant and the first sergeant."At the Vietnam Memorial in Washington D.C., 58,000 stories are etched in stone. And although you cannot see it, this one is there, too. Somewhere between two lines of type, the name of Guy Leith is not there."You wonder why you made it and they didn't," says Guy. "I never come up with a real reason." For the longest time, Guy thought maybe he was here to rescue someone from a burning building or perform some heroic deed. But now he says you can't torture yourself waiting for answers like that to strike. He says all you can do is enjoy the quiet moments until they do. The meaning of life, he says, lies not in the catching, but rather in the fishing. MMI, CBS Worldwide Inc. All Rights Reserved
Dangers of Swallowing Dental Instruments
Dangers of Swallowing Dental Instruments
Patients who swallow dental instruments are at risk and may need referral to hospital for further assessment, says UK-wide dental defence organisation MDDUS.All practitioners should realise that emergency medical assessment is required when any object is inhaled, but swallowing an instrument can be just as harmful to the patient.'Swallowing a crown or amalgam could pose a reduced risk to the patient but for endodontic instruments such as hand files or fractured tips of dental instruments such as scalers, patients should be referred to hospital immediately for assessment,' says MDDUS dental adviser Claire Renton (pictured).'MDDUS has dealt with cases where patients have swallowed an endodontic instrument or the fractured sharp end of an ultrasonic scaler during a scale and polish and even parts of faulty handpieces. While all professionals should be aware of the seriousness of inhaling objects, some believe that there is no need to refer a patient who ingests a dental instrument.'However, in these cases, the practitioner should explain to the patient that they need to be examined and assessed at the hospital as a precaution.'While swallowing an object may pose a reduced risk, a medical practitioner should be the one making the judgement and so the patient should be referred to A&E, complete with letter containing their dental history.'It may be beneficial to provide an identical object to help the doctor with their assessment. This gives the doctor sufficient information to judge whether a 'watch and wait' approach can be adopted or if surgery is required to retrieve the object before it does harm to the gut.'Practitioners should make a clear note of the incident in the patient's records, outlining the treatment given and whether a referral was made.'
Hundreds Protest Kidnapping' in Norway's Child Welfare System
Hundreds Protest Kidnapping' in Norway's Child Welfare System
Driving rain in Oslo didn't put the several hundred protesters off from making their viewpoint heard, as they assembled by the city's Central Station, before marching towards the parliament building. Banners were held aloft, with messages including: "Children are not business," and, "Bring back our children." They are angry at the Norwegian foster care system 'Barnevernet,' (Child Protection Service), which has seen families in the country lose their children for alleged abuses, such as accidently dislodging a child's loose tooth. Eva Michalkova, who is originally from the Czech Republic, has felt the wrath of the Barnevernet, after she lost her two children."It's a mixture of feelings. It's sadness, frustration, it's a feeling you you don't know what to expect and all you can say is used against you, all you can do is used against you. So it is very difficult," she told RT's Ruptly video agency.READ MORE: 'Similar to Nazi foster care': Czech president slams Norwegian child welfare Michalkova's case stems from an incident in 2011, when her two sons were taken into protective care, after one of her children told a nursery teacher that his father had "groped inside his pajamas," the Norwegian online newspaper Nettavisen reported. No charges were ever brought over the incident, but the Barnevernet placed the children into two separate foster families. The children's parents have since divorced, but Eva is fighting a legal battle to regain custody of her kids. The incident brought a furious response from the Czech President Milos Zeman, who in February compared the Barnevernet system to Nazi Germany's infamous 'Arian breeding program.'"The boys are in a foster facility similar to Lebensborn. Their mother can meet them for 15 minutes twice a year. She must not talk in Czech to them. In other words, the kids are being estranged from their national identity," Zeman said, as cited by the Czech News Agency. In October 2014, the Barnevernet snatched the young son of a Russian couple after the child told classmates that his mother had pulled out a loose tooth. According to Natalya and Sergey Shianok, their son Oskar, who was five at the time, had told fellow kids at his school that his mother had accidently yanked out one of his baby teeth. Natalya explained that she was helping him to pull a T-shirt over his head and knocked out a tooth that was already loose. The Barnevernet said this was child abuse and that the mother had deliberately knocked the tooth out."For the moment Oskar remains in the care of a Norwegian foster family, and his mother has no idea where," says Igor Lapitsky, head of the Russian consulate in Norway, reports RadioVesti.ru.READ MORE: Javelin dentistry: Former Olympic champ removes daughter's tooth with spear In comparison, former US athlete and Olympic gold medal winner, Bryan Clay won praise from across the internet, when he tied a piece of dental floss to a javelin, which he then threw, to dislodge his daughter's loose tooth. Marius Reikeras, a human rights activist is critical of the Norwegian government's spending on Barnevernet, saying that the money could be more effectively channeled elsewhere."We are putting a lot of money in the Child Welfare System. No country in the world puts more money per capita than the government when it comes to CPS. If we could help these families, if we could provide these families with the money we put into the CPS system instead, I am pretty much sure that we could help almost every family," he said. Norway's Child Welfare Services says on their website that they are committed to providing help and support to children, adolescents and parents who are experiencing challenges or difficulties within the family. The service adds that parents are responsible for providing care and protection for their children. "The Child Welfare Services must base its actions on the best interests of the child. Sometimes the child's best interests conflict with those of the parents. The Child Welfare Services' first duty is to provide help and support to the parents, so they can take good care of their children," the service's website said.
The Invention of the Toothbrush
The Invention of the Toothbrush
"The first thing I do in the morningis brush my teeth and sharpen my tongue."Dorothy ParkerAs I recall - the kid loses a tooth and it gets stuffed under a pillow before he or she drifts off to sleep. (Sometimes it's stashed in a glass of water beside the bed...I've been told it's easier to find the little bugger that way.) And when the sun cracks over the horizon a replacement is often found - be it a quarter, a buck, or a gift - and its all thanks to The Tooth Fairy.The Tooth Fairy is this mythical, make-believe, whatcha'-ma-call-it that nocturnally twitters through the night air and speeds from bedside to bedside collecting the fallen teeth of little children, sometimes leaving a trinket for the tooth as an honorarium for its loss. It gives the rug-rats a false sense of belief in the intangible, a whodunit to solve, and forces them to begin to distinguish the difference between the actual and the make-believe, thus beginning every child's mistrust of its parental units.At about six years, baby teeth naturally start to wiggle, loosen and usually fall out so that adult teeth may have their permanent home. And while this event might cause any kid to completely freak out, it's a normal part of life and it happens to us all-Tooth Fairy, or not.Although it might be natural for teeth to fall out as a child, it isn't for adults, and one of the best ways to make sure that your teeth stay firmly planted in your adult head is by daily committing to brushing them. That means getting in there a few times a day (at the least, once in the morning and once in the evening, but best after every meal) with a brush and your favorite toothpaste...it's the optimum way to remove plaque, which consists mostly of bacteria. (And of course, remember to shut that running tap off while you're brushing and sing "Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star" in your head-when the song is done, you're done!). A toothbrush can get most of the oo-and-goo, but the flotsam and jetsam left behind is easily tackled with dental floss. When you get into the swing of flossing you'll discover the thrill of what many consider the best way to remove plaque from all of the nooks and crannies along the gumline where periodontal disease most times begins. (A regularly scheduled professional cleaning and polishing by a dental hygienist is also a nice touch.)And to keep your toothbrush fresh as a daisy - after brushing - rinse it completely with water, allow it to air-dry (who invented that silly toothbrush-cozy...heh?), stash it at least six feet away from a toilet (ewww...yes guys, that's how far you splash!) in an upright position and without touching other toothbrushes. The manufacturers of synthetic toothbrushes recommend disposing of them every three or four months, too. And it's also a good idea to break-in a new toothbrush once you have finished with a cold.Because it's such a common item, one would think that the toothbrush would have been made in the seven days that the heavens and the earth and Adam and Eve where created. (I just assumed they both must have had Pepsodent Smiles-didn't you?) This week, however, marks the observance of the humble toothbrush's creation. (How do I know these things? Don't ask, just trust me!)The toothbrush as we know it was invented in the 15th century in China and was originally concocted of boar's hair or horsehair and bamboo or bone. Immediately loved for its functionality, toothbrushes were hauled back by the boatload to Europe by travelers to the East, thus introducing the Western world to a new and convenient form of oral hygiene -quite possibly Western man's first attempt at it ever! (Next, I think, came deodorant, but that's for another blog.)The modern, disposable toothbrush that we've all come to know and love, however, is most often made of more durable and long-lasting synthetics and plastic. And all of this made me start to thinking about how we need to be mindful of the small stuff that makes up our lives and how small actions can have big consequences. Take for instance the simple act of throwing away that synthetic and plastic toothbrush:If you consider that the average human life expectancy today is about 78 years and then multiply that by the times one might replace a toothbrush (every 4 months or so) you get a grand total of 312 toothbrushes used and then discarded by any given individual during his or her time on the planet.Then, figuring that each toothbrush weighs 16.5 gm, in total, every person on the planet (about 6,602,224,175) throws away approximately 11 pounds of toothbrushes in a lifetime. Soooo - if 6,602,224,175 people throw away 11 pounds of toothbrushes each, we're stuck with something like 72,624,465,925 pounds of non-biodegradable waste. That's 36,312,233 tons - a pile the size of 80,000 Statues of Liberty. (It sure redefines the line "...the wretched refuse of your teeming shore" from the famous Emma Lazarus poem found at Lady Liberty's feet.)So the next time you or someone in your household needs a new toothbrush, consider switching to a newfangled biodegradable one made of corn or potato starch, flax or wood fiber, and natural bristles. You can easily find them on line.Although The Tooth Fairy could once ease the pains of losing baby teeth - powerful as she (or he) may be - nobody can make 36,312,233 tons of discarded toothbrushes disappear. That heap of non-biodegradable trash can only vanish by not making it in the first place.Now go floss!

The Odd Truth, April 22, 2004
The Odd Truth is a collection of strange but factual news stories from around the world compiled by CBSNews.com's Brian Bernbaum.Newman: Not In My Name PRINCETON - Paul Newman is appealing to Princeton University to end a campus tradition in which participants try to drink one beer an hour for 24 hours.Newman's Day, set for Saturday, derives its name from an apocryphal quote attributed to the actor: "24 beers in a case, 24 hours in a day. Coincidence? I think not." Trending News Reinvigorated Dorian lashing coasts of North and South Carolina Only crew member to die in boat fire had just landed her dream job 911 call from Kevin Hart car crash released: "He's hurting" Bricks of cocaine wash ashore in Florida after Hurricane Dorian Man parks smart car in kitchen so Dorian won't blow it away Students have been known to show up for class inebriated or with beer poured into coffee mugs.There's additional concern because the day coincides with a weekend when the university hosts hundreds of prospective students.Newman's lawyer sent the university a letter calling for the tradition to stop. The actor founded a center to help prevent substance abuse after his 28-year-old son died of an overdose in 1978.The university says it doesn't not sanction the event.Blended With Salt, Splash Of AntifreezeOMAHA, Neb. - A bench trial is under way for an Omaha woman accused of spiking a margarita with antifreeze, then serving it to her former sister-in-law.Maureen Plambeck is charged with attempted murder. She is accused of using antifreeze in mixing drinks for Kris Cerveny during a two-hour drinking session last August. Cerveny ended up in a hospital intensive care unit, where she stayed for three days recovering from ingesting four times the lethal limit of antifreeze, prosecutors said.Plambeck admitted in court Tuesday to putting the antifreeze in Cerveny's drink, but said she only wanted to scare her.Her attorney, James Martin Davis, asked Douglas County District Judge Gerald Morgan to find Plambeck guilty of the lesser charge of first-degree assault."Admittedly, it was a half-baked idea," Davis said. "But the intent was to make her sick, not to kill her."Plambeck and Cerveny had been struggling over the care of the ailing Tracy Horton, who is Plambeck's brother and Cerveny's ex-husband, Davis said.Plambeck became Horton's guardian after the couple's divorce and she was concerned that Cerveny had been allowing Horton to drink alcohol - which Cerveny denied, Davis said.Doctors had told Horton that drinking alcohol could kill him. Plambeck waived a jury trial.Quack Dentist Busted In Garage OperationWEST PALM BEACH, Fla. - Patients who had dental work done by Jairo Herrera may want to get a second opinion.Herrera, 60, was arrested Tuesday on charges he ran an unlicensed dental office out of his garage.Police said Herrera told them he made more than $100,000 last year pulling teeth and making dentures, crowns and implants.He was charged with practicing dentistry without a license, use of dental equipment by a non-dentist, operating a dental lab without a license and dispensing drugs without a license.West Palm Beach Detective Lt. Mark Anderson said police found a dental chair, moldings, needles and vials of a local anesthetic as well a lab to make dentures, crowns, bridges and implants in the neatly kept two-door garage. Police said they weren't sure how long Herrera had been working out his home, but that he used to do dental work in his native Colombia.Herrera was released Wednesday from the Palm Beach County jail on $3,000 bail.Charcoal Dog PantiesCEDAR RAPIDS, Iowa - Dogs may no longer be the butt of their owners' jokes, thanks to Frank Morosky.Morosky, owner of Flat-D Innovations, has developed a product to reduce the odor of flatulence in dogs.Two years ago, Morosky, who runs the business with his partner, Brian Conant in Hawaii, developed a similar product for people. He said he could only laugh when people first asked if he could make it work for dogs."For a year, we said, 'No, that's stupid. Nobody would buy that for a dog,'" Morosky said. But Morosky changed his mind after a customer asked him to custom make a pair of full underwear using his material. It was during that project that he realized making charcoal-lined panties for dogs might just work.Morosky has developed two versions that will go on sale later this month. One, similar to a G-string, will sell for about $20. The other, a denim diaper with a detachable charcoal pad inside, will sell for about $50.Veterinarian David Graeff of Animal Care Hospital, said flatulence is common in dogs, but is not a medical problem."I think it would be great if they could find a way to keep them (the diapers) on," said Graeff, adding that many dogs won't wear a bandage without tearing it off.Graeff said pet owners often jokingly blame their own flatulence on their pets."Unfortunately," he said, "the dogs do get blamed for this, no matter what."Caught In A Coffee Caper FAIRBANKS, Alaska - It happened in North Pole, Alaska - a man used a video camera to record his apartment being burglarized, apparently by a neighbor's friend intent only on stealing coffee and creamer.Arnold Reed became suspicious that someone had been pilfering his coffee after his upstairs neighbor said she smelled coffee in her own apartment but knew she didn't have any.Reed borrowed a video camera and caught Hall's houseguest stealing French vanilla coffee from his freezer and hazelnut coffee creamer from his cupboard.He told the Fairbanks Daily News-Miner that if the guy had just asked he would have given him some coffee.The videotape showed the thief using a butter knife to gain access into the home. He was jailed on $500 bail.German Postman Caught Auctioning Stolen PackagesBERLIN - A German postal worker admitted to putting packages up for auction over the Internet after a search of his apartment turned up a hoard of missing deliveries, police said Thursday. The 37-year-old letter carrier, whose identity wasn't released, started siphoning off packages and offering their contents on online auction site eBay last summer, police said. In all, more than 100 went missing, and police estimated the total value at $23,700.While the German post office noticed that packages frequently went missing on his round, it was unable to prove anything until a musician whose clarinet mouthpiece went missing in the mail blew the whistle.After the package failed to arrive, he found an identical item on eBay - offered by the postman, from the western town of Gelsenkirchen. He bought it, but also informed police.Police found the missing mouthpiece at the apartment of the postman's girlfriend and then searched his own apartment - turning up piles of missing packages.The man confessed to stealing the mail and was released after questioning, police said.14th Century Italian Poet's Skull MissingROME - Experts hoping to reconstruct the features of Italian poet Petrarch by examining his bones have a problem: The skull in the 14th-century writer's tomb is not his. Researchers discovered Thursday that a skull in the marble casket believed to hold Petrarch's remains probably belonged to a woman, according to project leader Vito Terribile Wiel Marin. He insisted, however, that the rest of the bones were Petrarch's.Marin said tests showed the DNA of the skull was different from that of the other bones - and that therefore the head could not be that of the literary great. Marin says physical marks, including a leg injury suffered while riding from Florence to Rome in 1350, confirm the other bones were Petrarch's."Don't ask me where the real cranium is, because no one knows where it finished up or who took it," Marin said. "Think of all the craniums in the world - where would we look?""Our only hope now is to make an appeal in the hope that someone who is the descendant of the thief might return it anonymously," he said.Petrarch was born in Tuscany in 1304 and is famed for the poems he dedicated to his mysterious love, Laura. He is considered second only to Dante in the pantheon of Italian writers.He is widely seen as the founder of humanism, the study of classical civilization that paved the way for the Renaissance.Marin's team suspected from the shape of the skull that it belonged to a woman, and DNA tests showed this to be 60-70 percent probable, said Marin, speaking by phone from his home in the Padua area. Petrarch's tomb is in Arqua-Petrarca, the village in northeastern Italy where the poet died in 1374.

Heritage Plaque: Our Ancestors' Health Read From Teeth
Heritage Plaque: Our Ancestors' Health Read From Teeth
By Sharon Levy (Image: Michael Kirkham)Ancient microbial DNA on fossil teeth has opened a fresh window on our ancestors, revealing that civilisation has altered our mouth flora for the worseALMOST a millennium ago, a middle-aged man was buried in a graveyard in Dalheim, Germany. He had taken some hard knocks in his life - a fist fight had torn incisors from his jaw. And oral hygiene was clearly not a priority: his remaining teeth carried a thick coating of plaque, the gunk that modern people battle with toothbrush and dental floss. We should thank this unknown man for his grim chompers, however, for his dental plaque is now opening a surprising new window to the past. Inside it is a beautifully preserved record of the microbial community in his mouth when he was alive.We have just begun to understand that the microscopic organisms that live inside and on us are not necessarily pests or freeloaders. Outnumbering our own cells by 10 to 1, they form ecosystems called microbiomes that play a vital role in keeping us healthy. Which microbes we harbour depend on our environment, diet and lifestyle. Since our ancestors co-evolved with an array of microbes and parasites that people in most developed countries no longer encounter, human microbiomes must have shifted over the millennia as we made the transitions from hunter-gatherers to farmers to urbanites. But bacterial remains rarely survive the ravages of decomposition and fossilisation, so direct study of ancient microbiomes seemed out of reach. The discovery that plaque holds the well-preserved remains of a rich microscopic community has been a revelation.
Hundreds of Former Patients Tested for HIV Or Hepatitis After 'unhygienic' Dentist Is Accused of Ign
Hundreds of Former Patients Tested for HIV Or Hepatitis After 'unhygienic' Dentist Is Accused of Ign
Precautionary blood tests have been performed on hundreds of people after it emerged a dentist was suspended for flouting infection-control standards.More than 1,300 people have contacted a helpline and another 600 former patients of Desmond D'Mello have visited a dedicated clinic amid fears they could have been infected with blood-borne viruses, including HIV and hepatitis.NHS bosses made a plea to more than 22,000 people thought to be at risk, urging them to come forward.The recall - believed to be the biggest in UK medical history - affects all patients who were treated by Mr D'Mello at the Daybrook Dental Surgery in Nottingham over a 32-year period.The allegations surrounding Mr D'Mello emerged after a whistleblower secretly filmed him treating 166 patients over a period of three days in June.The footage showed the dentist allegedly breaching infection-control standards.Meanwhile the latest CQC report by health inspectors who examined the surgery in July found medical equipment was stored in a staff toilet, posing 'a risk of these items coming into contact with body fluids which may be contaminated'.NHS England said 1,333 patients had so far called the helpline, and more than 600 people had gone to a clinic set up to deal with queries and perform precautionary blood tests.A spokeswoman said 452 patients had so far been tested at the clinic in Arnold, Nottingham.It emerged that detectives are investigating possible links between treatment given by Mr D'Mello and the death of a 23-year-old patient.Amy Duffield died unexpectedly in August last year, prompting Nottinghamshire Police to make inquires on behalf of the coroner.The force stressed it is not a criminal investigation. Miss Duffield's death came three days after she fell ill with flu-like symptoms and heart palpitations.The cause of death was given as viral acute myocarditis, the Telegraph reports.Mr D'Mello has been suspended pending a full investigation amid claims he kept medical equipment in the staff toilet and failed to wash his hands and change his gloves between patients.A Nottinghamshire Police spokeswoman said: 'Detectives are now working to establish if there are any links between the death and the dental treatment she received. This is all being undertaken in close liaison with the NHS.'She said an investigation into the death of another woman, 29, who died in August 2013 found 'no evidence' of any links between her treatment and her death.NHS England said Mr D'Mello is not infected with any of the viruses himself. But they said his alleged failure to follow clinical standards may have put his patients at 'low risk' of infection.Within an hour of the recall's announcement yesterday worried patients had started queuing outside an emergency walk-in clinic set up for them.Martin Clamp, 24, a construction worker from Daybrook said: 'When my partner told me about it, I was speechless. I came straight down to the centre and registered to be tested.'I had three teeth out earlier this year and there were no problems but it makes you think.'It all makes me feel uneasy, worried and a little bit scared. I've been going there all my life and if I've got something in my blood and passed it on to my partner, she could have given it to my son when she was pregnant.'Emma Hopewell, 27, from Arnold, said she was worried about the situation because she is eight months pregnant.She said: 'I'm having to get my children to go and have blood tests because of this, and I'm pregnant I shouldn't be having to worry about it.'I think it's disgusting. It's a small dentist so I know they kept files in the toilets, so it wouldn't surprise me if he kept equipment in there as well.'She said they had been given packs with advice in and now had to wait 14 days until they find out the results.Her mother, Iris Brace, 54, also of Arnold, said: 'It's absolutely disgusting.To think that our whole family has been going to see him for so long and now we're all having to get tested over this.'Meanwhile one former patient of Mr D'Mello, Chris Dalkin, told MailOnline he had only ever been impressed by his dentist of more than 20 years.He said: 'He is a brilliant dentist. Professional, courteous and the same goes for the staff.'A very popular dentist as the large numbers involved prove.'The whole thing stinks. I hate to think what Mr D'Mello is going through.'Those patients deemed at risk will be tested for blood-borne viruses, which include HIV and Hepatitis B and C.NHS bosses said yesterday the practice is now under new ownership and the new owners have no links to Mr D'Mello.In a bid to track down all patients treated by Mr D'Mello, a hotline, which will operate seven days a week, has been launched to advise patients.Speaking at a press conference in Mansfield, Dr Doug Black appealed for former patients of Mr D'Mello to come forward for screening.He said: 'The whistleblower provided us with evidence to support these claims, including covertly-filmed footage of Mr D'Mello, which was filmed over a three-day period during early June this year.'This footage appears to show multiple failures in cross-infection control standards whilst patients were undergoing dental treatment. In simple terms,'This means acceptable hygiene standards did not appear to be followed by Mr D'Mello whilst he was treating dental patients.'None of us could be assured that these apparent lapses in practice were only limited to the days on which the covert filming was taken.'For this reason, we have recommended that any patient who has ever received dental treatment from Mr D'Mello be called back for screening.'Dr Black said screening will involve a discussion with a clinician and may require a blood test.He added: 'We are extremely sorry for the undoubted worry and concern people may feel on hearing this news.'I would like to stress again that the potential risk is low but would encourage anyone who has been treated by Mr D'Mello to contact the advice line.'Effective treatments are available for these blood borne viruses, which is why it is important to identify anyone who may have been at risk of infection, however low this may be, so treatment can be started if necessary.'We are working closely with Public Health England to resolve this issue as quickly as possible and provide support and assistance to those who may be affected.'He said NHS England have written separately to the 166 patients filmed without consent to explain what has happened, and to offer assurances that the video footage will remain securely stored while the investigation is ongoing.But he said it will not be possible to write to each of the 22,000 patients within an 'acceptable time frame' because some of those who were treated visited the surgery as far back as 1982.Mr D'Mello, who studied at the University of Manchester and qualified in 1977, was suspended for just 18 months in August by the General Dental Council, pending the start of the investigation.Dr Black added: 'Since August the former Daybrook Dental Practice has been under new ownership by Southern Dental, which is not in anyway connected to this incident but has offered ongoing support and cooperation to our investigation.'A Care Quality Commission report into the practice from July this year, highlighted concerns over hygiene standards throughout the practice.The report by inspectors noted: 'We observed the staff toilet and the room next to the toilet were being used as store rooms for equipment.'This posed a risk of these items coming into contact with body fluids which may be contaminated.'This risk had not been identified by staff at the dental surgery and no action had been taken to minimise it.'We saw that mops and buckets for cleaning the practice were stored directly next to the staff toilet, in the same room, which again posed a risk of this cleaning equipment coming into contact with body fluids which may be contaminated.'Chair of the British Dental Association's General Dental Practice Committee, Dr John Milne, said: 'There is absolutely no excuse for putting patients at risk.'We champion the highest standards in dentistry, and rigorous infection control procedures need to be at the heart of any practice, large or small.'Clinical experts from Public Health England have established there is low risk of exposure.'But today these patients need some reassurance, and recall is therefore a sensible precaution.'Dentists across the UK are setting high standards, and any exceptions are both regrettable and rare.'But today's news does raise questions about the current inspection regime.'We've long argued that dental experts need to be on the front line for inspections.'We must ensure we have inspectors who know what good practice looks like, and we will be working closely with the Care Quality Commission to make that a reality.'Katherine Murphy, chief executive of the Patients Association, said the fact the allegations could refer to a 32-year period is 'particularly concerning'.She said: 'It is worrying to learn that there has been a potentially serious breach of infection control procedures at this dental practice.'What is particularly of concern is that it has continued over a 32 year period. It is clear that patient safety has been put at risk, and this should not have been allowed to happen.'Patients will understandably be anxious and worried in case they have been affected.'NHS England and Public Health England must ensure that they do everything possible to contact every patient who may have been put at risk. It is vitally important that there is effective and clear communication with patients.'Patients deserve an explanation for what has happened at this practice, and the public must be reassured that it will not happen again. Patients deserve far better than this and standards must improve.'David Corless-Smith, director of Dental Law Partnership, a law firm specialising in dental negligence, said the recall is 'deeply shocking but not altogether surprising'.He said: 'Unfortunately, we see this kind of appalling malpractice on a daily basis and work on behalf of patients to bring rogue dentists to justice.'He added: 'For far too long dentists have been considered to be untouchable with patients who have had appalling treatment too afraid to come forward or unsure of how to tackle dental malpractice.'Today's case in Nottingham is lifting the lid on an issue that affects every single one of us.'Professor Andrew Lee, a public health expert at the University of Sheffield, called for calm and said the risk to most patients will be low.He said: 'In reality I think the risk would be quite low and I think it is important that the public maintains a degree of perspective here about the real actual risk posed to them.'It is easy to conflate our fears about visiting the dentist with these isolated incidents of poor practice.'Most patients attending the dentist will probably have pretty low-risk procedures carried out on them, often with single-use instruments, so they would not be at risk.'There is a very small cohort of patients who have what is termed an 'exposure-prone procedure' - a more major dental procedure where the risk is potentially higher, so presumably they are the group of greater concern. Public Health England (PHE) states (this is) 160 such persons out of 22,000.'He said blood-borne viruses cannot survive for very long outside the human body.He added: 'What NHS England and PHE are doing is following standard protocol in carrying out a 'look-back' exercise. This is good practice and precautionary.'Dr Rosemary Gillespie, chief executive at Terrence Higgins Trust, also moved to reassure patients that the is a 'next to no risk' of HIV being passed on from dental equipment that has not been sterilised properly.She said: 'NHS England has confirmed that the dentist in this case does not have HIV.'The suggested risk is likely to relate to dental equipment not being properly sterilised between appointments.'It is right that these patients have been recalled, but we would reassure anyone who has been contacted that there is next to no risk of HIV being passed on in this way.'HIV is a fragile virus, which becomes inactive minutes after leaving the body.'For the virus to be passed on via dental equipment, it would have to be passed from one mouth to the next far more quickly than most appointments would allow.'Today's announcement and the recommendation for mass screening is believed to be the biggest in medical history.In the past, NHS trusts have instead written to patients who could be at risk.Last year, two NHS boards contacted thousands of patients after it was revealed that a dentist practising in Scotland had HIV. The dentist, who worked at a surgery in Paisley, west of Glasgow, also provided emergency cover at a hospital in Dumfries.Following the discovery, 3,000 patients were told that they could be at 'very slight risk'.In the past 25 years, 10,000 patients have been tested in Britain as a result of 'HIV-related patient notification exercises'.In April 2014, the rules surrounding HIV in healthcare workers were changed. Bans on those with HIV being able to carry out certain dental and surgical procedures were lifted.Worldwide, there have been just four cases of clinicians infecting patients, according to the GDC.Are you a former patient of Mr D'Mello?
