Aparatul dentar cel mai bun si mai rapid Sâmbătă, apr. 30 2011 

Am citit un articol foarte interesant, pe care „consumatorii” de forumuri ar trebui sa gaseasca rabdarea de a-l parcurge.

Nu este adresat pacientilor, insa sunt dezbatute acele „frequent asked questions”:

  • care este cel mai bun aparat care sa scurteze timpul de purtare a aparatului dentar
  •  tratament precoce la copii versus amanarea pana la 11-12 ani
  •  marketing (aparat cu bracketi din safir, aparat Damon, Speed, Invisalign) versus statistici obtinute pe seama cercetarilor si studiilor de specialitate
  •  „instant orthodontics” sau ” social six treatment” sau pe romaneste „vreau sa-mi aliniez doar dintii din fata”
  • extractii de dinti pentru  a crea spatiu
  • o muscatura buna sau doar castig estetic?


Si mi-a placut ca nu da sentinte, dar este un semnal de alarma in ceea ce priveste conflictul dintre stiinta si antreprenoriat, pentru ca acesta nu rezolva problema pacientului: nici un plus privind calitatea sau timpul de tratament, ci doar in ceea ce priveste COSTUL.

„That’s the problem with mixing business and science” 😦

Care este cea mai buna pasta de dinti?? Joi, mai 20 2010 

Si eu as vrea sa stiu care este cea mai buna crema hidratanta, antirid, cel mai bun sampon etc.
Deci intrebarea mi se pare legitima. De cele mai multe ori sunt intrebata insa ce pasta de dinti folosesc, asa cum sunt intrebate mereu vedetele in revistele mondene despre diverse lucruri pe care le prefera.
Pana acum le recomandam paste de dinti cu un gust care sa le placa, astfel incat periajul sa devina o placere.
De cand am descoperit Parodontax, mi-am schimbat complet parerea. Prima impresie este de gust neplacut, datorita concentratiei mari de plante medicinale, insa te obisnuiesti curand. Ce mi-a creat insa dependenta de Parodontax este senzatia nemaipomenita de prospetime dupa periaj……e greu de explicat in cuvinte, pur si simplu simti diferenta!

P.S. Folositi periuta soft sau pe cea medium umezita, altfel va puteti irita gingiile

How to make a girl smile Joi, mart. 18 2010 

„If you know how to make a girl smile, then you will automatically be more successful with women in general. People like to smile, it makes you feel warm and fuzzy inside and these feelings will be associated with the person who has made you smile. Wouldn’t you like a girl to feel warm and fuzzy when she thinks about you ?

Here are the kinds of smiles you are trying to get:
•Genuine smile
•Compliment smile
•Impressed smile
•Happy smile
And here are the kind of smiles you want to avoid:
•Polite smile
•Weird / “You are insane” smile.
•I own you smile
Situational smiles
The easiest way to make a girl smile is to make use of the environment that you’re both in at the moment and to highlight something funny that is occurring. There is always something interesting, or funny happening if you pay attention to it.

For example, if you’re both waiting in line… make eye contact so that she notices you, and then immediately go into a huge fake yawn hinting that you’re bored of waiting line. This works great if there’s a huge line and no one is talking. The key is to be funny while retaining your dignity. If you make a fool of yourself, you’ll get the “you are weird” smile.

A more verbal approach in situational smiles would be to point something funny out to her. Usually talking about other people or items is an easy way to score a laugh. If you were grocery shopping and you happened to be in the cheese isle, you could say in a serious tone: “This cheese reminds me of the moon”, and then break out a small grin. Its dumb, but it works. ( Here’s a little more information on lines to make a girl smile )

Avoid pre-canned material
Of course, the WORSE way to make a girl smile is to use someone else’s joke or canned material. If it doesn’t come out as spontaneous and natural, then it will trigger the polite smile. What ever you do, do not ever tell a joke with a beginning, a middle and an end. These will NOT trigger any attraction what-so-ever. In fact, what this says is that you are trying to impress her and this will consequently lead to less attraction.

Body language smiles & smiles attract smiles
Sometimes giving a genuine smile will result in receiving one as well. “Give and you shall receive!” The best place to try this is in a setting where you are busy and CANNOT immediately talk to the woman in question. The smile says: “Hello, I’m interested and I WOULD talk to you, but unfortunately I’m busy right now and I can’t, so I might later if you return the smile”. Imagine you were hard at work, waiting tables, lifting boxes, actually doing something… and you saw an attractive woman you wished to talk to but at the moment, just couldn’t. A nice genuine smile would be infinitely appropriate and would peak her curiosity assuming she found you remotely attractive.

If you don’t end up talking to her, then she’ll leave thinking: “Oh I should go back to that place where that guy smiled at me… maybe he’ll still be there and won’t be busy this time” 🙂

Conversely, if you DO talk to her, she’s likely to be much more receptive and excited to get to know you. 🙂 🙂

The worse place to give a big smile as an opener is at a club, bar, party or any social setting. This immediately says: “Hello, I don’t have the guts to talk to you”. In those situations, talk first, THEN smile.

Comedy: Exaggeration and misleading
Assuming you’re hanging out with the girl, exaggeration and misdirection are the best ways to make someone smile. Its the essence of all comedy and it works for professional comedians as well as for you.

If you can get a girl smile, she’ll usually be more attracted to you. All those good feelings get associated to you and consequently, you end up being the guy who makes her feel good. The last and most powerful way to make a girl smile is called using the “cocky and funny” technique. Not only does this technique work every time, but it also triggers powerful feelings of attraction at the same time. Not only will you learn how to make a girl smile, but you’ll learn how to create powerful attraction as well.”

Flush men who brush Duminică, mart. 14 2010 

„It is a known fact that all men are liars. That being the case, how can a woman know if a man truly means it when he says, „I love you?” She can’t. Instead, she needs to look to his behavior to determine the truth. In the past, psychologists have suggested a woman pay attention to a man’s sleep position or his car in order to determine his true feelings for her. Unfortunately, studies show these theories, while good, are only accurate

89.6% of the time. Fear not ladies; a new study uncovers a male behavior that reveals his true feelings for you accurately 100% of the time!

Men who brush their teeth meticulously, taking time to clean each tooth individually, are incapable of ever truly loving a woman long-term. They may love one for a short period, but cannot ever love her forever. They are nitpicky and will inevitably find fault with something she does. Then they will find fault with something else she does. Then something else. And then something else. You get the idea. See how a relationship with such a man will eventually unravel? Men who brush meticulously cannot love.

Men who brush their teeth without method or care, just going at it with all kinds of random motions and gestures, are too indecisive to love. They will like something a woman does one moment, than be agitated by it a mere instant later. Men who brush without method or care are incapable of love because they don’t know what they like. A man who doesn’t know what he likes will always be curious about what he’s missing in his current relationship and inevitably end said relationship to see what else is out there. (56.7% of women in relationships with such men suffer severe injuries in the bathroom while sharing the mirror. The random flailing gestures used to scrub the teeth result in critical elbowings and pokings.)

Men who brush their teeth up and down are bipolar. They cannot love. One day they are manic, excited about everything; the next they are scraping the bottom of the barrel, unable to even find a reason to get out of bed. These men see no worth in themselves, so they always question what women could possibly see in them. They have low self-esteem and men with low self-esteem are incapable of love.

Men who brush their teeth from side to side are shifty. These men are capable of love… with a different woman every night! They are only interested in one thing… and it’s not a woman’s shoes. Stay away from men who brush side to side; they can’t love because they want every woman they meet, never giving one enough time to win their sincere affection and interest.

Men who brush their teeth in a circular motion ARE capable of love. But, these men are boring, always returning to the same habits. If you date one of these men, expect to spend every Saturday night at home watching his favorite movie for the umpteenth time. He’ll want the same meals on the same nights (chicken on Tuesdays, macaroni and cheese on Wednesdays…). End relationships with such men. There is an 84% suicide rate among women who marry such men and a 14% divorce rate. The remaining 2% of women who stay with men who brush in a circular motion wind up in comas from utter boredom.

At first look, this airtight theory gives little hope of women finding love, doesn’t it? Not true at all. Take a closer look; there is one type of man who has not yet been discussed.

Men who don’t brush their teeth at all are the men to love. They are easy going, yet consistent in their due diligence to let their teeth rot away. They don’t have annoying habits, like whistling or tapping their teeth with their fingernails. They don’t care what they have for dinner, as long as it’s blended into a nice mush. Their income is supplemented by a steady flow of cash from the tooth fairy (until the last tooth is lost). These men are confident; they don’t need teeth to feel whole or important. They are not vain or shifty; a prettier woman is not going to turn their heads. Plus, according to the U.S. Department of Health, the average male spends 197,321 minutes of his life brushing his teeth. Think of all that extra time your toothless lover will have for you, you lucky girl! Men who don’t brush truly love their significant others. Where can women find such men? Don’t worry, ladies, it’s easier than you think. Men who don’t brush are everywhere. You can find them sleeping on park benches or in their cars. Sometimes they can be found fighting with pigeons for scraps of food littering the ground. Some are quite resourceful, able to make entire homes out of a cardboard box.

Open your eyes, ladies, and find true love. Find yourself a man who doesn’t brush today! Flush all the others; they’ll only break your heart.”
