Dental Hygienist's Work Conditions Can Affect Care Delivered to Patients

Bio Medicine has issued the following news release:

The favorite hygienist normally seen for care may not be there the next visit to the dental office. Sometimes, the public relies on people without knowing the risks their profession places on them. Take the average hygienist, for example, generally they work for a small business, and although their job is ranked as one of the top paying and most desired professions, that may, or may not be true. US News ranked dental hygiene the 5th best profession to pursue in the United States. US News estimates hygienists make annual salaries of about $71,110, even while many work part time. US News also expects 33.3 percent employment growth for this field up to 2022. (http://money.usnews.com/careers/best-jobs/rankings/the-100-best-jobs). The problem is, for many hygienists this perception does not match the environment they currently work in.

Brokers' take

Tat Hong Holdings | Hold

April 20 close: S$0.64

Target price: S$0.63

OCBC Investment Research, April 20

Tat Hong issued a profit guidance statement last Friday evening as the group expects to report a loss for Q4 FY15, attributed to weak performance of its Australia wholly-owned subsidiary amid challenging business conditions due to the slowdown in Australia's economy and mining sector. Hence, the group is also expected to recognise significant charges for the impairment of goodwill and assets, which is non-cash in nature. With that said, the group expects to remain profitable for FY15, citing a stable underlying performance . . . Due to the muted outlook for its key market, a net loss in Q4 FY15 and lower growth in FY16, we reduce our fair value from S$0.75 to S$0.63. However, as its share price has fallen by about 18 per cent over the past five months, we think that the negatives may have been priced in. Thus, we maintain our "hold" rating, while we wait for further details when results are released on or around May 29.

Signs Of Oral Cancers And Prevention Tipsearly Indicators:; Oral Cancers Are An Overlooked But Too Often Deadly Scourge Advanced Indicators: Oral Cancer Prevention Tips:

What did baseball great Tony Gwynn, former Presidents Grover Cleveland and Ulysses S. Grant, psychiatrist Sigmund Freud, producer Bruce Paltrow and movie critic Roger Ebert have in common?

If you guessed they all died from oral cancer, you'd be right.

The "C-word" strikes fear in the hearts of many. You probably wouldn't be shocked to hear that, in our country, the cancers that kill the most are lung, breast and colorectal cancer in women, and lung, prostate and colorectal in men. These are well known. Oral cancer, however, doesn't get much coverage.

Inside Dentistry Addresses the Economic Imperative of Oral Health

Bio Medicine has issued the following news release:

A growing body of research suggests an association between oral and systemic health, particularly in terms of the impact of periodontal disease on chronic illnesses, including diabetes and cardiovascular disease, and pregnancy outcomes.
