Women Entrepreneurs Prove It's Not Just A Man's World
I had the honor of speaking this week at a women's business association luncheon on the topic of entrepreneurship. When I mentioned to my wife the day before that I was speaking to group of women entrepreneurs she asked, "Why on earth would they ask you to speak?"
In her defense my dear wife has no idea what I do for a living. She's never read a single one of the several hundred columns I've written. She's never attended a function where I'm speaking or sat in the audience at any of my seminars.
“I have a patient who can taste methamphetamine in his denture.” One of Safelink’s clients called a few weeks ago to ask our assistance with answering a question posed by one of their dentist clients. The patient was a methamphetamine user prior to imprisonment and has now informed the dentist that he can taste the drugs in his denture. This brought up the question as to whether the drugs can be absorbed into the denture and then could the dentist or technician who is repairing the denture be exposed to the drugs.
Most of us, at one time or another, have worked from a to-do list. They keep us grounded and scheduled to task by reminding us of the things we have committed or planned to accomplish. It is indeed quite pleasurable, with pen or pencil in hand, to cross an item off the list and feel that sense of accomplishment. In fact, if I happen upon something to do that was not on the list to begin with, I often add it just so I have the pleasure of crossing it off. Sometimes though, the most significant item on a to-do list is not even on the list at all!
These secrets will help you make the shift from stage fright to stage delight and boost your career in the process
The ability to stand up and speak comfortably and effectively before audiences is a widely recognized leadership and success skill. And yet, opinion polls tell us that many people rank public speaking as their No. 1 fear. No. 2 is death.

My business partner and myself are childhood friends. We started our laboratory together in 1981 and we worked together in another laboratory for four years prior to that. We have basically spent our entire lives, or most of them, working or playing side-by-side. While it’s not technically a family business, it might as well be one. I don’t know if this is true, but I have heard that as many as half of the dental laboratories in the U.S. are family businesses.
Working with electricity can be dangerous. Workers in the dental laboratory environment don’t typically work with electricity directly as do engineers and electricians, but they do work with electricity indirectly and may also be exposed to electrical hazards. OSHA recognizes electricity as a serious workplace hazard. Electrical injuries consist of four main types: electrocution (fatal), electric shock, burns and falls caused as a result of contact with electrical energy.
