Leading Dermatologist, Charles E. Crutchfield III, MD Refuses to Offer Dental Treatments

Original Article

Eagan, MN – In a statement issued early Friday afternoon to his staff and colleagues, Eagan, Minnesota-based, board-certified dermatologist, and Clinical Professor of Dermatology, Charles E. Crutchfield III, MD announced that his medical practice would not be conducting dental examinations, filling cavities, or otherwise engaging in dentistry of any kind. He stated the decision was irrevocable and would be effective immediately.

Recently, Dr. Crutchfield has had several patients tell him, in horror, that their dentist has offered them Botox injections administered by a dental assistant while still in the dental chair. “The allure of practicing in an area that a professional, or the professional’s staff, have no training or experience can be tempting to make a quick buck, but I believe we owe it to our patients and our professions to perform procedures for which we are competent,” Crutchfield explained. “Society’s limitation of practicing medicine to licensed professionals, like doctors and dentists, is based on the belief that a license equates to training in that area. Even as more professionals, like, say, dentists – or worse yet, their assistants – perform medical treatments like Botox that are well outside their training and licensure, real professionals will suppress any greed reflex and focus their practice on areas they know.” Continue reading Leading Dermatologist, Charles E.

How Does Wine Have “Notes”

Have you ever been to a wine tasting, or read the copy on the back of a wine bottle? If so, then you know that wine has notes. For example, a snooty waiter may inform you, “This full-bodied Chardonnay is heralded as having notes of vanilla and citrus with a walnut finish.” This doesn’t mean that the wine is infused with vanilla, citrus fruits, or nuts. It’s just how our brains(and taste buds) interpret some advanced microchemistry.
Grape juice becomes wine through fermentation. Yeast is added to grapes and grape juice, and it eats the sugar found naturally in fruit. That, in turn, creates alcohol. Along the way, thousands of complex chemical compounds—still within the grapes—are formed. Even though those compounds are still by and large made of grapes, the molecules have been rearranged ever so slightly that they taste different from just grape juice or wine. The brain (and taste buds) interprets them as other, more familiar flavors. For example, let’s say that fermentation creates a chemical compound that has a similar structure to that of apples. Even though the wine is made of grapes, the taste buds will taste that chemical compound, even just a little bit, because the
molecules in that compound are arranged like an apple molecule.
