Spiritual Warfare

By Sam Molind, DMD / December 28, 2020 /

The problem for many Christians is that they have no concept they are living in a war zone. Too many Christians trudge half numb through this life oblivious to the perils all around them.

My fellow in training was standing beside me; she had been the one to actually examine Mrs. Stovall. ā€œI owe it all to God,ā€ she said. ā€œAnd, of course, to you, as well,ā€ she added politely. ā€œI agree,ā€ I answered. ā€œThis is Godā€™s business.

Howā€™s your balance? I started a ā€œsenior yogaā€ at my fitness club which is basically a stretch and core strengthening class. I really needed it! It helped me get over the muscle spasm left over from my spinal surgery last fall. One of the exercises is to stand on one leg and move the other leg to the front and the side, back and forth. AND THEN, reach down and touch my foot! Needless to say, the instructor keeps reminding us, if you are losing your balance, just put your foot down. Itā€™s definitely a good core builder!

But we are told our lives will be more difficult. That does not sound good. There will be a reward, but not necessarily in this lifetime. Jesus is not always a ā€œnice guy.ā€ Do we want to believe what is pleasant and easy, or what is true? Even though I donā€™t like my phone bill, I know it is true.

Working in Light of Eternity

By Elizabeth Flaherty / August 10, 2021 /

Throughout dental school, I have been actively seeking a rhythm of work and rest that honors the Lord, serves my patients and allows me to truly rest. This became of paramount importance to me because, if Iā€™m honest, I knew this was something I had failed at for a large portion of my life. During college, I watched one of my roommates and best friends observe the Sabbath every Sunday. Blake would be running out the door with a picnic blanket and a football in her hand as I was cramming in last-minute studies for the week ahead. It was not that I never took breaks, but I could never bring myself to take off an entire day every week. Since elementary school, I had always strived for perfection in my work, so it was no big change for me in college to stay up late, wake up before the sun, incessantly check off to-do lists and barely enjoy the feeling of finishing one test before moving on to study for the next one. Looking back now, I realize how much of that striving was actually rooted in fearā€”fear that my future rested entirely in my own hands, fear that this is what was required for my life to be of value and, ultimately, fear that my ability to serve in the future was based entirely on my performance now.

For Glory and Glorification: Part 1

By Christian Medical & Dental AssociationsĀ® / August 22, 2019 /

ā€œā€¦To Him belong glory and dominion forever and ever. Amenā€ (1 Peter 4:11, ESV).

Everywhere I go I carry a little brown NIV Bible. This particular Bible possesses significant sentimental value to our family. Firstly, it is the Bible my father used during my wifeā€™s and my wedding. In between the pages are love notes from my wife, drawings from son, an ultrasound of my daughter, our wedding vows and other cherished memories that are all used as bookmarks. Furthermore, inside the cover is a note written by my father. This note details some of his emotions regarding his role as a first-time officiant of our wedding. Despite his fears, he found comfort in the fact that his role was ultimately ā€œall about God.ā€ In other words, it was a moment for Godā€™s glory and our glorification of Him. That is the ultimate message that will be discussed in this blog series.

Be Open to Godā€™s Surprising Will

By Jennifer Wade, DDS / July 20, 2021 /

If you had asked me my third year of dental school where I would be in five years, I would not have told you Memphis, Tennessee. Iā€™m from Texas, and Iā€™m one of those Texans who felt like they would always be in Texas because, as the catchy song goes, ā€œGod Blessed Texas.ā€ At the same time, I felt God called me to do dentistry for a specific purpose. When looking at my options in Texas, everything felt like it would just be something to do but not what God was calling me to. Iā€™m still not proficient at seeking Godā€™s will, but I was even less proficient then. The Lord had to drop an opportunity right in my lap for me to think outside of what I thought was possible. He had me open an email from CMDA that I almost ignored, and I read a description of the CMDA Dental Residency [+] program that pulled on all the heart strings of what God used to lead me to dentistry. It described working in urban community clinics in Memphis, Tennessee to serve patients with the spiritual love of Christ and physical healthcare through dentistry. It also offered discipleship and a call to expand this vision beyond Memphis to other underserved settings in the U.S. and abroad.

An Old Evangelist and the Password to DentrixĀ®

By Steve Cartin, MDiv / August 18, 2020 /

ā€œCall unto me, and I will answer thee, and shew thee great and mighty things, which thou knowest notā€ (Jeremiah 33:3, KJV).

Itā€™s hard to guess how many annual revivals I have taken part in or led in 34 years of ministry. One stands out above all the others.

Itā€™s impossible to count the dentists Iā€™ve worked with in the U.S., United Kingdom and Ireland. God has blessed me to know some of His choicest servants in the course of the ministry of dentistry. One stands out who must remain nameless for reasons we shall see later.

WPC Pulse: August 2018

By Women Physicians in Christ / August 10, 2018 /

A number of years ago I purchased a Cocker
Spaniel puppy to help distract and entertain some
children I was caring for while their mother was
dying of cancer. We named him Cappuccino, as
he was buff-colored. The kids had a great time
playing with Cappy, who was adorable, but he had
multiple health issues over his lifetime of 12 years.

A Salt and Light Revolution

By Sam Molind, DMD / July 21, 2020 /

In some ways we are living out the famous words of Charles Dickens:

ā€œIt was the best of times, it was the worst of times, it was the age of wisdom, it was the age of foolishness, it was the epoch of belief, it was the epoch of incredulity, it was the season of Light, it was the season of Darkness, it was the spring of hope, it was the winter of despair.ā€

When was the last time you asked yourself ā€œWhat kind of doctor do I want to be?ā€ I donā€™t mean what specialty or what branch of medicine in which you desire to practice, but what kind of doctor do you really want to be? Many of us chose our specialty early in our medical school days, or even before medical school started.

WPC Pulse: May 2018

By Women Physicians in Christ / May 10, 2018 /

My husband is convinced that if even one person in a group outdoor activity does not come prepared for inclement weather, then bad weather will occur. For example, if all are prepared with rain gear, then it wonā€™t rain. But if even one person forgets the rain gear, then there will be rain. I think CMDA staff may have decided to adopt this philosophy because this year the attendee gift for the CMDA National Convention was an umbrella with a flashlight built into the shaft. Historical data would show this to be a tremendously useful gift for this meeting.

We were seeing him in the hospital because his blood counts had dropped, probably nothing serious. As we talked, I learned he was a Korean War veteran and asked him if he was at the Chosin Reservoir, in that “Coldest Winter” where more than 100,000 Chinese poured over the Korean border and drove U.S. soldiers south though cross-fire and frostbite.

Letā€™s face it. Not everyone in the dental ā€œindustryā€ has a passion for oral healthcare. For some, dentistry is a moneymaking opportunity. Christian owners of businesses are sometimes overwhelmed, sometimes misunderstood and sometimes conflicted.

WPC Pulse: April 2018

By Women Physicians in Christ / April 10, 2018 /

I had my annual physical recently, having called for an appointment last fall. She has been my doctor for more than 30 years and caught my colon cancer early so Iā€™m still here today. Much to my surprise, she ordered several tests. Each test precipitated a referral to another specialist because they were abnormal. My appointment book is filled with doctor visits up the wazoo!

Persevering in the Perilous

By Caren Abraham, DDS / July 6, 2020 /

ā€œWatch ye, stand fast in the faith, quit you like men, be strongā€ (1 Corinthians 16:13, KJV).

For most of us on the planet, life has been turned upside down over the last few months. An event that no one (or possibly very few) living today personally remember has taken the world by storm, and many are struggling to adjust to a new way of life. Society appears to be fragmenting, not just across the country but around the globe. Just before all these things began, I moved to Kenya to start a dental clinic in a rural mission hospital. This is something that has been on my heart for many years. I have been here a few months tackling Swahili, and now I am working to acquire materials and doing administrative groundwork for the clinic. There are many days when I feel like Iā€™m running an uphill marathon.

Keeping the Main Thing the Main Thing

Predictions

By Robert E. Cranston, MD, MA (Ethics) / August 9, 2018 /

In medicine, patients and families want to know diagnoses, therapies, risks, benefits and side effects of proposed treatment options. At times the thing they most want to know is what is likely to happen to themselves or their loved ones based on possible interventions. This, however, may be the most difficult answer to give people.

Breathing Prayer

By Jennifer Wade, DDS / June 29, 2020 /

I know itā€™s not a new concept, but it was new to me and may be new to you as well. Itā€™s a way to get your mind to sit still and focus on the Word of God and hear His voice. You pick a short verse or verse portion and repeat it by saying the first half as you breathe in and finishing it as you breathe out.
