These days paying for health and dental care is complicated and expensive. Learn more about Ethical-Dentistry-Reflections-Dental-Care here.

Reflections Dental Care Eases The Burden

Even more adding dental care to your insurance can be a burden too.

From The Bunker Blog Gives Readers Options

Firstly every now and then I like to use The From The Bunker Blog at The Bob Davis Podcasts to give podcast listeners and subscribers content they can use. That’s why this blog deals with Ethical-Dentistry-Reflections-Dental-Care.

Recommending Reflections Dental Care In Maple Grove Minnesota

Secondly when it comes to dental care, one of the best recommendations I can make is Reflections Dental Care in Maple Grove, Minnesota.

Here’s why

Reflections Dental Care is known for its patient focused approach. Moreover Reflections Dental Care is owned and operated by two great friends of mine; Doctor Anupam Gatecha and Reflections Dental Care’s business manager Hetal Gatecha.

One On One Patient Focus

Certainly in this day and age of corporate volume oriented businesses the one on one customer focus is often lost.

Why “Doctor G” Started Reflections Dental Care

Doctor Gatecha wanted to focus one on one with patients and that is why he started Reflections Dental Care.

The idea behind this amazing clinic was to reflect his values as a Dentist.

Ethical-Dentistry-Reflections-Dental-Care
It’s All About Patient Focus and Giving Time

Patient Focus

Dr G’s approach is patient focused, rather than market focused.

A Big Plus

And obviously that focus turns out to be a big plus for patients.

Yes There Is A Discount Plan

For example, the Reflections Dental Care’s Discount Plan.

Real talk…Dental insurance can be an expensive and difficult proposition for both the patient and doctor.

The Reflections Dental Care discount plan allows you to pay just three hundred dollars for a whole year.

Included are two cleanings, two x-rays, two exams, flouride treatments and a 15 percent discount on other services.

The good news?

No insurance middleman.

No haggling over bills.

Because Reflections Dental Care’s discount plan eliminates the middle man.

This is a great plan if you’re just getting started in life.

In addition it’s valuable if you have kids.

And if you have young adults just coming off parents’ medical and dental plans at 26.

Why Discount Plan Is So Important

Reflections Dental Care’s approach is to make sure you’re getting regular cleanings and visits.

Checkups and Cleanings Mean Better Dental Health

In addition with regular checkups and cleanings your Dentist can deal with issues before they become problems.

No Copay With Reflections Dental Care Discount Plan

Certainly with the discount plan, there’s no copay.

Even more there’s no issues with insurance, when you change jobs.

Introducing Doctor G

Friends of Reflections Dental Care in Maple Grove affectionately call Doctor Anupam Gatecha, “Doctor G”.

Philosophy

Doctor G started reflections because his philosophy is to give time to patients,

Giving Time

Doctor G and Hetal say giving time helps Doctor G understand your concerns as a patient.

Moreover giving time allows Doctor G and Reflections Dental Care to provide more options to you because your concerns are better understood.

Genuine Concern

This genuine concern for individual patients is why Reflections Dental Care exists.

You can see Reflections Dental Care’s concern and attention to detail in the photos of Reflections Dental Care’s Clinic in Maple Grove, in this edition of my blog.

Unique and Positive Experience

Patients at Reflections Dental Care report that the experience is completely unique and the best they’ve ever had.

Moreover people who refer Reflections do so with high confidence.

Family Focused Too

If it’s check ups, cleanings, X-rays, emergencies, braces and other dental issues with your kids, Reflections Dental Care is family focused.

Ethical Dentistry

To sum up, It’s about the ethical practice of Dentistry and the patient.

Finally if you’re looking for ethical dental care I can also happily refer you to Reflections Dental Care.

Battlegrounds-Too-Close-To-Call-Bob Davis Podcast 955

Battleground States Too Close To Call

Firstly it may be a surprise to some but the battleground states are too close to call. Secondly these days pundits follow each other. They strive to make predictions. Learn why I say this in Battlegrounds-Too-Close-To-Call-Bob Davis Podcast 955.

Media Setting Up False Expectations

More importantly for the country, these commentators are setting up false expectations.

Above all this has been a consistent feature of my podcasts regarding polling in swing states, since January 2020.

Why Do We Play The Game?

Finally I believe we play the game to find out who wins. We don’t call the winner before the game starts.

USA Has No Direct Presidential Election

It should certainly go without saying but we do not directly elect presidents in the United States.

Media Obsessed With Popular Vote

Therefore a media obsessed with national polls and performance ratings is setting us all up.

What I Don’t Do

I don’t do national polls. In addition I don’t talk about approval ratings or name recognition. Reporting on the betting tallies for the election is also out.

Above all I do not care who wins this election. So it’s easier for me to analyze poll results where they matter.

Don’t Use The Term ‘Accurate’

To go further we do not use the term ‘accurate’ when discussing polling. I am only concerned with whether the poll’s methodology and structure is reliable.

Swing States Have More Balanced Party Vote and Are Electoral Vote Rich

When it comes to the selection of the president in short, the battle is in electoral vote rich states with more balanced voting histories. In other words not all one thing.

Swing States Decide

To clarify the states that will decide the presidency are these states.

Still Close

In the same vein I check the polls in these key states everyday and I keep seeing the same result. Certainly there are ebbs and flows when it comes to preference but overall it remains a very close election.

Standard Deviation and Point Spreads

For example even though one candidate might appear to have a 3 point, 5 point or more lead it doesn’t mean the other candidate couldn’t close that lead and win with a very small plurality on election day. In addition some polls consistently over estimate support for either the democrat or republican candidate.

Ties and Damn Ties

Unfortunately and most importantly our media doesn’t seem to understand that in survey research, two, three, five and sometimes six points, could actually be a statistical tie.

Yep. Too Close To Call

Therefore too close to call.

To sum up this is a must listen podcast roughly thirty days away from November 3rd.

It is by no means decided because it’s too close to call in the battleground states.

There-Is-Something-Going-On-Bob Davis Podcast 954

Have You Ever Felt Like There Is Something Going On?

Firstly have you ever felt like there is something going on? Something you can’t quite put a finger on. More importantly a feeling welling up from deep inside. That’s what There-Is-Something-Going-On-Bob Davis Podcast 954 is all about.

Feelings Rule In This Podcast

Second I know this is weird. Therefore this is not a ‘fact-based’ podcast. This is about feelings and trusting your feelings or intuition.

Wanting To Go!

Most importantly many people seem to have this instinctive urge to ‘get away’. To ‘Go’. So this podcast is for them.

Everyone Wants to Go To Ground

In addition real estate in rural and exurban areas is hot right now. Lots of houses in the city up for sale. RV’s sales and prices are through the roof.

All At Once

Seems like everyone wants to hit the road, move to the country. All at once.

Is There Something Going On?

Certainly this begs the question. Is this some kind of animal instinct. Like going to ground before an earthquake?

What Do We Do With Our Instincts?

Moreover do we listen to our instincts or rationalize them away? And, what happens when we do that?

Not Everyone Can Be A Nomad Or Buy A Farm

Meanwhile life goes on. Not everyone can become a nomad or buy a farm.

The Rational And The Sensitive

Finally some do not feel the urge at all.

Doesn’t Mean There Isn’t Something Going On

On the other hand if some feel it and some don’t one doesn’t invalidate the other.

Feel The Feels

In the same vein I’ll just say I feel this urge strongly.

Trouble Ahead

Even more, my instincts tell me there’s more trouble ahead and this might be what some people are reacting to.

Mayhem And Madness…Seem Normal Now

In the same vein, fill in the blank with whatever mayhem you think we might have to face.

2020 Is A Very Strange Year

Given what we have already dealt with in 2020, I don’t think anyone can say, “That’s not going to happen”, with any degree of confidence!

Strange Brew

In conclusion, I don’t know what I’ll do with these feelings.

Speak My Truth And Move On

Finally I do know that I can’t move on with my regular podcast schedule without getting this off my chest. That is what I do in There-Is-Something-Going-On-Bob Davis Podcast 954.

No-News-Is-News-Bob Davis Podcast 953

No News IS News

These days the first thing to know is no news, IS the news. We’ll talk about it in No-News-Is-News-Bob Davis Podcast 953.

Objective Sources?

Most important for this walk and talk podcast is that some people think there are still ‘objective sources’.

Podcast Integration

First of I do walk and talk podcasts for a reason. These freewheeling podcasts are my way of integrating the ‘heavier’ podcasts I’ve done recently.

Therapy

Walking and Talking is therapy for me.

Weirdest Election Ever

Secondly we’re less than 60 days away from what is sure to be one of the weirdest US elections in memory.

Poorly Served

As a result of walking and talking I hit upon the idea we’re still being poorly served by all kinds of media in this country.

Lies are Truth…Truth Is A Lie

Even more is the question of where people turn when the intent of every source is to convince, manipulate or spread lies as ‘truth’.

Pundits Addicted To Predicting

Above all my focus lately has been reporting on political polls. In No-News-Is-News-Bob Davis Podcast 953 I take a few shots at the so called pundits and their predictions.

Rediscovering The Battleground States

Certainly the media has recently rediscovered the so called ‘battleground states’. In recent elections, mostly located in the central US.

Bob Davis Podcasts Has Been In The Battlegrounds All Along

We’ve been discussing the battleground state polls exclusively since 2019. In addition, most of the media aren’t reporting those polls properly currently.

National Polls and Manipulation

Above all this is the place to get analysis on key state polls without the partisanship. In addition I don’t make predictions and I don’t care who ‘wins’ this election.

Realignment

Finally as I think we’re in the midst of a political and social realignment. No one can tell you where that’s going to end up.

Something IS Wrong

For instance the feeling we all have something is wrong but we just can’t put our finger on what it is.

Walking Through A Late Summer Night

To sum up it’s always better to walk through a still late summer night and talk these things out.

That’s what a walk and talk is all about.

(Editor’s Note: I hate it when I have to do corrections, but this was a big mistake, so…Mentioned a Real Clear Politics metric which compares 2016 averages to 2020 averages between Hillary Clinton’s poll numbers then to Joe Biden’s now. I reversed those numbers. Biden is running about one point ahead of Clinton in the top battleground states and substantially better than the former Secretary of State in other metrics. However this doesn’t change how close the polls are overall in the battleground states. But given that I reversed the numbers, the analysis that Biden is running behind Clinton doesn’t work. All the more reason not to do analysis of the polls on the run in a walk and talk podcast.)

Spacetime-Is-Making-Us Crazy-Bob Davis Podcast 952

Spacetime Did What?

First of all spacetime is as much a mystery to me as to anyone else. Learn more in Spacetime-Is-Making-Us Crazy-Bob Davis Podcast 952.

We’re All Nutty Now

But something happened in deep space recently and it might be effecting us now. Secondly I’ve done a number of podcasts about how nutty everyone is right now.

Thoughts Invading My Brain

Finally as I counted down the final hours of Labor Day Weekend and essentially the end of summer these are the thoughts invading my brain!

Front Porch Podcast

So join me on the front porch, in the rain, for Spacetime-Is-Making-Us Crazy-Bob Davis Podcast 952.

Black Holes

Above all, in May of 2019 astronomers detected a collision of two black holes millions of light years from us.

Collisions Light Years Away

To clarify this collision happened millions of years ago and we only saw it last year. Find out in Spacetime-Is-Making-Us Crazy-Bob Davis Podcast 952.

Spacetime Was Disrupted!

However as the light reached us here on Earth, so did the disruption in spacetime.

Shock Wave!

Even more while these kinds of things are fairly common out there in deep space this collision was epic. Two giant black holes and one giant interstellar shock wave!

New Reality?

Certainly ever since Einstein we’re living in a new reality. We think of reality differently in the last one hundred years than we did a hundred years before the theory of relativity..

Developments You Might Have Missed

And I wonder whether these seemingly benign developments out there in deep don’t effect us here in time. Deeply. The Metaphysical community certainly thinks it’s possible.

Crazy You Say?

However that’s crazy, right?

Crazier Than Today’s News?

Not any crazier than people going nuts at Walmart because they’ve been asked to wear a mask.

Deep State

Or quoting an unidentified person from the Internet who has ‘inside’ information on the mysterious workings of the ‘deep state’.

Maybe This Explains It

Therefore consider this explanation for what ails us.

Changes In Magnetic Fields

In conclusion human beings are animals, and we are very small in comparison to the rest of the universe we live in. What if we are more deeply effected by changes in our gravitational and magnetic fields?

Time Of Change

Likewise there’s no question we’re in a time of change.

Chem Trails You Say?

Some say it’s social media. Others, electronic energy fields. Chem Trails.

Collision On The Edge Of Town

In short, why not magnetic and gravitational fall out from a collision of black holes out there on the edge of town?

(Editor’s Note: In this podcast I suggest modern humans coexisted with Cro Magnon man. I meant to say Neanderthals. And it is documented that so called modern man existed with its closest predecessor. However there is also research that suggests that indeed Cro Magnon may have also coexisted with the more advanced Homo sapiens.)
