'Grey's Anatomy' creator Shonda Rhimes responds to petition to fire Jesse Williams

Dr. Avery is here to stay.

Jesse Williams, the actor who plays Dr. Jackson Avery on “Grey’s Anatomy,” gave a speech about race and criticized police in America at the BET Awards on June 26, and it apparently offended some people.

>> Watch the full speech here

Those who were offended by the so-called “racist rant” have created a petition calling for the actor’s dismissal from the show, and so far, it has more than 16,000 signatures.

“Jesse Williams spewed a racist, hate speech against law enforcement and white people at the BET awards. If this was a white person making the same speech about an African American, they would have been fired and globally chastised, as they should be, but there has been no consequences to Williams’ actions,” the petition reads.

>> BET Awards: Jesse Williams delivers impassioned speech on race in America

In a defiant twist, another petition was filed that supports Williams and calls him, “a brave leader.” That petition currently has more than 25,000 signatures.

“Jesse Williams is a bright man, passionate spokesman and a committed advocate of black people and #BlackLivesMatter who took a public stand on BET Awards show, risking his job and career for his beliefs,” the supportive petition explains.

“Grey’s Anatomy” creator Shonda Rhimes also had something to say about the petition calling for Williams to be fired.

On Monday, she took to Twitter to express her feelings, writing, “um, people? Boo don’t need a petition. #shondalandrules.”

Mic drop.

Fans of Shondaland applauded “the boss” and showed their appreciation on social media.

Root canal: Surgical Center, insurance plans ease the way

Root canal: Surgical Center, insurance plans ease the way

 With nine specialists on staff and many insurance options, having a root canal performed at Alliance Surgical Center is a painless and efficient way to save your teeth.

 Dr. Scott Howell, a Harvard-trained endodontist with more than two years of residency in root canal procedures, works with our professional anesthesiologists at Alliance Surgical Center.  

 Although American endodontists and dentists do more than 15 million root canal procedures every year, myths persist about them being painful and causing infections in the rest of the body, according to the American Association of Endocrinologists. These are based on almost 100-year-old research, which recommended teeth be extracted and not saved.

 Rather than spreading myths, the association provides these facts: Nothing can sufficiently replace your natural tooth. An artificial tooth can sometimes cause you to avoid some foods. Keeping your own teeth is vital so you can keep consuming the wide variety of foods needed to maintain a healthy diet. 

 If your dentist recommends pulling a tooth, ask whether root canal treatment is possible.

 A trained endodontist, using the correct restoration methods, can cost effectively treat teeth with damaged pulp. A root canal is usually less expensive than extraction and placement of a bridge or an implant, which may require more office visits to treat adjacent teeth, gums and other tissues.

 Endodontic treatment also has more than a 90-percent chance of success. Many root canal-treated teeth last a lifetime.

 A patient should consider root canal as an option, even if he or she lacks the money for treatment. Most patients now have more insurance plans to choose from than ever before.

The Signature Smiles office accepts non-managed care, indemnity (traditional) and PPO out-of-network insurance plans. The PPO dentists are not part of any managed care network, including HMOs and DMHOs. 

 There’s no need to fill out PPO dental benefits forms; the office accounting staff takes care of that. 

 Your dental insurance policy, however, is an agreement between you and your PPO insurance company. PPO dental insurance helps make some treatments more affordable. Some PPO dental insurance benefits include braces.  

 The in-network short list includes:

  • Aetna
  • Ameritas
  • Anthem

What to Look for When Selecting a Pediatric Dentist

What to Look for When Selecting a Pediatric Dentist

The American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry (AAPD) recommends you bring your child to a dentist once their first tooth comes in, or by their first birthday. But, not all pediatric dentists are the same and finding the right one who takes good care of your family while providing a relaxed and stress-free environment can make all the difference. This checklist will help you select the best care for your child’s dental needs.

Where to Find Pediatric Dentists

  Finding a dentist in your area who is affordable and specializes in kids’ dentistry is half the battle. Try asking for recommendations from friends and family with experience. You can also ask your child’s pediatrician for a referral at the next check-up. The AAPD website has a pediatric dentist search tool to help you find someone with plenty of experience with kids. Make sure to ask about their training with babies, adolescents and children with special needs. A pediatric dentist should have two to three years specialty training following dental school, in which they limit their practice to treating children only.

What Kind of Care to Expect

Your son or daughter will likely be visiting a pediatric dentist from infancy until they’re a teenager, so it’s good to know what proper dental care is needed at various stages of growing up. For example, you’re going to need oral exams and risk assessment when your child is an infant. As they get older, preventative care like regular cleanings, sealants and fluoride will be necessary. Eventually, your child will be assessed for potential orthodontic treatment to straighten teeth and correct improper bites.

Comfortable Atmosphere

A trip to the pediatric dentist should not be a scary experience for your child. They’re more likely to have healthier teeth if their attitude toward the dentist feels more fun than fearful. Make sure your pediatric dentist’s office has plenty of kid-friendly activities for your family while you wait in the lobby. Is the office staff friendly and accommodating? How does the dentist respond to a child who is upset or scared? These are all questions to ask yourself before choosing the right pediatric dental care

The Education and Resources You Need

 It’s important for your dentist and staff to educate you and your family on proper dental care at home. Ask for resources on caring for infant and baby teeth, get a demonstration for proper brushing techniques and learn how diet can affect teeth. With your baby, you’ll need to know how to deal with dental habits like teething, thumb sucking and pacifier use.

You don’t have to settle for just anypediatric dentist. With a little research, you can find top-rated and kid-friendly dentists for your tiny tots without too much hassle or stress on your wallet.
