Ship's Captain Forced to Be a Dentist at Sea
Updated: Aug 12, 2020
Many people have felt alienated from their dentists during the lock down caused by COVID-19. Many dental conditions have been left to fester as people have searched in vain for treatment and advice. Those in small, under-serviced communities, those working remotely and those stranded at sea, as we will see in this video, have all suffered terribly as we all try to find ways to cope with lock down.
