How to Find the Right Dentist for You
We, at Yellow Springs Dental Care always attend to our patients' concerns.
But in our complicated healthcare system, it seems that some maladies rate higher than others.
Among medical specialties, some are more prestigious than others.
The more highly ranked specialties and diseases involve vital organs. Those ranked lower involve chronic conditions. But age and the bodily location of diseasecan contribute to high and low prestige.
Certain diseases consistently rank at the top (myocardial infarction, leukemia, brain tumors) and others at the bottom (fibromyalgia, anxiety neurosis).
How Diseases stack up
Here’s the complete list of diseases, ranked from most prestigious to least. Note that 38 is a small number of diseases, so there are conspicuous omissions, such as breast cancer.
Myocardial infarction [heart attack]
Pulmonary embolism [usually a blood clot in main artery of lung]
Extra uterine pregnancy
Meniscus rupture [knee cartilage tear]
Ulcerative colitis [type of inflammatory bowel disease]
Duodenal ulcer [ulcer in upper part of small intestine]
Sciatica [injury or compression of sciatic nerve]
Bechterew’s disease [ankylosing spondylitis, spinal arthritis]
Femoral neck fracture [top of the thigh bone]
Inguinal hernia [abdominal protrusion through inguinal canal]
Apoplexy [bleeding of internal organ]
Hepatocirrhosis [cirrhosis of the liver]
But have no doubt--at Yellow Springs Dental Care the mouth is always TOPS!
