Question for dentists about the state of the U.S. dental economy

2021.12.03 02:31 m4x0rz Question for dentists about the state of the U.S. dental economy

It is my impression that two things are simultaneously true as a prevailing condition:

  1. There are many millions of people who need dental work done that either aren't getting it, or having to wait weeks before every step of the process. Countless lives are put on pause and brought to ruin by dental woes that often become medical/emergency woes.
  2. Crushing economic pressure is put on those who choose to get into dentistry, from unbelievable dental school costs/debt, to savage competition to acquire the customers that actually can afford to pay fees that don't require a dentist to work all the time. Too many potential clients simply cannot afford anything, and things like medicaid in many states screw over the dentists. It's also not worth practicing in some areas due to lack of density of clients that can afford to pay.
Now, I'm sure there are many True Believers that want to dismiss the woes of those who don't make it to the success end of the bell curve of general systemic conditions, but it seems to me that in this country, there are major impediments both to people getting dental care, and people that want to provide it.
Do you agree with me that this problem exists, and what would you say causes it, if so? Any angle, technological, professional, regulatory, economic, political, social, admistrative, etc. is welcome.

2021.12.03 02:31 Derpazoid69 Is this legal? (possible raid of reserve fund)

I live in a condo in Edmonton Alberta that I own and have been paying my condo fees.
I got a letter from the management company saying I would have to pay an extra $215.83 per month as a result of a reserve fund study starting January 2022 until December 2022. There was an AGM today. I didn't go but they called me so I asked about the payment. they said it was to "restore the health of the reserve fund"
The letter contained a budget breakdown as follows:
From January to December 2020 The reserve Fund contributions were $21,870.96. The expenses were Intercom $3,201.45 Paving $47,927.25 for a total expense of $51,128.70. Total reserve fund was $72,999.66. There is a line stating Total other expense $72,999.66 leaving the reserve fund $-35,487.72 for the year. The same thing happens with the January to September 2021 Reserve fund contributions totaled $12,758.06 Reserve Fund study was $5197.50 Total Reserve Fund $17,955.56. Total Other Expense $17,955.56 Leaving a total negative of $-14,845.53. Now I'm not an accountant and I only have a basic understanding of accounting but it sees to me this "Total Other Expense" is the condo board/management company removing money from the reserve fund to do who knows what with it. Am I wrong or did they raid our reserve fund? There is no breakdown of what this "Total Other Expense" is.
Is this even legal? Can they just take the reserve fund money like that? I want to get a lawyer. I've lived in the building over 5 years and this is the first time something like this has happened. Google says companies that provide condo management services are regulated by the Real Estate Council of Alberta so I will email them and see what they say.
On the chance the management company/condo board can't provide a breakdown of this "total other expense" which just so happens in both cases to conveniently equal the exact about of the Total reserve fund would I have a case if I went to a lawyer?

2021.12.03 02:31 Lord_Trolldermort Does anyone else only keep playing this game out of spite?

To the people on your "team", when you play against them on the other team. Everyone on Dota is hateful, toxic, and I do my darn best to give as good as I get, sometimes giving before I get. I gave up trying to improve MMR because it is literally a coin toss whether a game of won or lost, it's like gambling but none of the skill. The reason is because you're lumped with 4 ****tards who will feed, troll, chatwheel laugh, hoard neutrals, ks and all that good shit every single match.

I usually start playing Dota because something happens that gave me lots of free time, recently it's injury from work. But what keeps me playing even my life situation improves is out of spite. I hate literally everyone in Dota and do my best to unwind after a long day at work to ruin their games. Dota is not a co-operative strategic game, it's more like you vs 9. 5 on the enemy team that stands in the way of MMR and 4 on your own team that stands in the way of MMR.

Sure, you might have guessed that I play at a very low behaviour score bracket, and Herald forever. But Dota the game is built to encourage toxicity, I'd have to be Jesus turning ma cheeks every single game to try and get behaviour score back to 10k. But I ain't Jesus, so my BS will never improve. Tried several accounts over the years, not bought, just new ones with fresh behaviour. Every single time, always <500MMR / Herald, F <3000 Behavior. I mean I could "git gud", but what's the point. I already throw perfectly winnable matches just so some toxic ahole on my team lose.

2021.12.03 02:31 dudunoodle My estimate of how much EIDL money is still left and a warning to the Sole Proprietors

My estimate of how much EIDL money is still left and a warning to the Sole Proprietors So by compiling data from different sources, this is what I found.
1) As of Sept 24, there was roughly 150 billion left
2) Based on SBA weekly publication, between Sept 24 to Dec 2, SBA approved $38.4 billon loans. Not dispersed, but approved.
3)Infrastructure Bill will pull $31 billon out of EIDL
So if you do the math, we got about $81 billion to work with.
Also according to SBA's weekly report, they exhaust about 5 billon a week. That gives us 16 weeks maximum. So yes, March 2022 is looking very likely when this program cease to exist.
To save you some time, I got the numbers here
Also there is an internal audit on SBA's failure to prevent many Sole P and individuals who should not have received the amount they received. So if SBA does act on it, a lot of you will get audited. Source:

2021.12.03 02:31 CharismaChecke Squid Game Glass Bridge Drinking Game

There's two shotglasses, one with vodka and one with water. One person stands arms length away from the other, holding the two glasses. The other person must guess which glass is which and drink one of them. The person holding the shotglasses gets the other.
The game ends when you get through 15 pairs of shots or when someone taps out. The shotglass holder wins if they trick the guesser into drinking more than half the vodka shots.

2021.12.03 02:31 spirit_whsprer Freeing a girl from demon oppression

WARNING: A lot of talk about religion, and my beliefs, if you don't want to hear it, don't read this. If you read this, don't gripe and complain about what you read. If you can read it and not get offended please do. If you post something discussing what you don't believe, I will approve it again, it does not bother me.
This is actually a part 2 to a banishment I did for a family. About 8 months later I get home from work just after midnight one night, and there was a desperate message on my machine for me to call them back. I wasn't going to call anyone that late, so I go in and fix my bedtime half a pot of coffee. I have always been weird, drinking a half a pot of coffee will put me to sleep faster than anything. So about the time my coffee gets done, and I pour a cup, the phone rings. I pick it up, and it Jayson, the man hat left the desperate message earlier.
He said, the church down the road is sponsoring an exorcism on a young girl, and they are not having any luck, is there any way I can come down. Now it was over a 45 minute drive to his house, then on over to the church, it's already going on 1am. I said Yes, I would be there asap. About 25 min later I pull up at his house (I won't say how fast I was going). He jumps in the van, and gets me down to the church, I pull up to a back-side door. Right as I park and cut off the engine, 4 men come running out that door. Don't forget, I'm still in my pizza uniform, covered in corn meal, and dough, and other toppings, along with pizza sauce. I sit there and say my prayers, wait for my answer from God, then I get out, walk up to the 4 men, it seems they ran out when the girl and the chair she was tied to started levitating, and she was chanting something that just put the fear into them. But at least she stopped reciting the ritual book of two exorcist, the other two men were her family.
So after listening to them cry, I said gentleman do you want to see how it's done? They said how what's done? I said banishing the demon, and there is one, I can feel it from here. They tried to stop me, they were "professionals" and it was dangerous in there. I laughed and said c'mon, and waved them in as I walked in. I walked up to a 13 y/o girl. I looked back and forth between her and the men, then said, cut her loose. The 4 tried to argue, my guy started loosening the straps. They were like are you crazy, I said "I command you in the name of Christ Jesus do not move", there was a horrible growl from the girls body. After she was loose,, I asked how and why the demon had chosen her, it took a minute, and finally the girls body said she was stupid enough to use an Ouija board, and just invited me in.
I said, ok it's time for you to go home, she started growling and trying to lunge at me, but could not get out of the seat. Me and my friend had to just kind of push the 4 back out of the way so I could do my thing. I walked up to her put left hand on her shoulder, took my right hand, lifted her chin, to a soft growl from her. I looked into her eyes, and said I am just the messenger, I have no power over you, but I"m not the one commanding you, Jesus Christ commands you to leave this girl, return to hell, and never return. She looked back into my eyes, tilted her had to the side. Then you saw peace come over her face, and the voice of a 13 y/o girl asked, who are you? Those two exorcist were mad, they had been trying for 3 days with no luck. I come in and actually accomplish th goal in 30 seconds, in a total of 10 minutes, I found out all kinds of information. The two family members were really happy.
I didn't mention everything I discussed, and it wasn't quite as easy as I mentioned, I think I had to tell it twice maybe three times to leave. But it should be that easy. If you believe and have faith, and you not only have God's permission, but he called you to do this, then nothing can stand against you. They had something missing, I don't know what they were missing. That was and is not my business, the only thing or person I need to worry about, is me and my relationship with God. I think I'm closer to him know than I was back then. Stay tuned, another story to come, whenever I get the chance.

2021.12.03 02:31 DoflamingoGT question about "worst case scenario"

hello, i'll remove this post later but was just wondering, what is the "worst case scenario" that can happen with activision blizzard's situation when it comes to wow? if it escalates to a worse point would it affect the game's servers or is it independant from them? i dont really care what they did but it will suck if something happens to wow or diablo because of that, they seem to be holding their own so far despite all the backlash so i guess the worst have passed or not

2021.12.03 02:31 Sophie_Garland Thought of the witches position in the comedia de'larte?

They have a more neutral role, sometimes helping and sometimes hindering the other characters, and I think of this as a representation of stories such as baba yaga, and wonder how accurately this represents us IRL. As something of an outside force, with their own unique opinions and not necessarily ready to side themselves with any one path.

2021.12.03 02:31 MusicaX79 Melee weapons need Balancing.

After being forced to play 100~ games of fiesta and having to deal with hammers and swords so often. Can we please be given back the technique of meleeing swords right when they are about to hit. That way we can still knock back swords at the cost of our shields. Instead of just instantly dying if you don't have a repulsor. As for the Hammer you need to add back the damage based on distance from the hammer. Taking the same damage at the edge of the hammer's area of effect as you do from a direct hit with the hammer, has never existed in Halo for a reason.

2021.12.03 02:31 PredZeppelin How far out does everyone zoom?

I’ve been playing with 3500 since the plug-javascript-into-searchbar days. From what I remember, zooming out much more than that would cause people to clip in and out and only appear in the 3500ish area, making further zoom not worth the eye strain… V’s videos look closer to 5000+, so just wondering if that’s where people play, and if it works well or not.
