The traditional procedure involves using a dental drill to break through hard tooth structure and to remove the softer decay. Some dentists now use dental lasers rather than or in addition to the traditional dental drills . Some dental lasers produce their own anesthetic-like effects

A dentist who visits Yukon communities to provide service was recently forced to use his drill on himself.  

According to another dentist — Helmut Schoener, who lives in Dawson City — it's because bureaucratic rules prevented him from stepping in to help the ailing doctor.  

Schoener said Dr. Chris Wisniewski had a toothache while working in Dawson a few weeks ago. Schoener is retired, but still has a licence to practice — and some 40 years of professional experience.

"[Wisniewski] said, 'I'm developing a toothache and it's getting worse — hopefully I can make it,'" recalled Schoener. "I said, 'look, there's no problem — I'll gladly help you out." 

Schoener said Wisniewski accepted his offer, and he called the territorial health department in Whitehorse to get permission for Schoener to use the dental facility in the Dawson community hospital.

But the answer did not leave him smiling.

Schoener said the Department of Health and Social Services denied him access. 

Baseball has no legal duty when fan hit by ball

  Baseball has no legal duty when fan hit by ball Going to a baseball game should be fun. But for Dan McCracken, a Blue Jays fan who wanted to see Jose Bautista’s final home game last September, a visit to the Rogers Centre was a costly experience .He was hit in the mouth by a foul ball off the bat of Blue Jays catcher Russell Martin. The tickets he bought with a friend were in section 130AR, Row 4, just down from the third baseline.“The ball hit my front right top tooth,” he says. “The tooth was partially dislodged and I received a few lacerations on my lip that required stitches.”A doctor on site at the Rogers Centre stitched him up and pushed the tooth back into place.

"This is an ironic twist — most of the people in town know that I provided dental services for the last 40 years."

Meanwhile, Wisniewski continued on his community rounds to Old Crow. His toothache got worse, according to Schoener.

"So he decided, with help from his wife and assistant, to drill his own tooth and put a filling in there. Poor guy," said Schoener.

Not a new issue, Schoener says

Schoener said he has asked the government in the past for permission to do emergency dental work, but it won't allow him. 

"The argument was it would be unfair to other Yukon communities if Dawson received dental emergency services by me," he said.

"And on top of it, I would provide the service at no extra expenses for [the Yukon government]. It would be a free service, no obligations financially."

Schoener said he can't understand the government's reasoning.

Wild boars on the lam in Yukon subdivision

  Wild boars on the lam in Yukon subdivision 'They’re true to their name — these animals are quite wild. They don’t respond well to human interaction,' said Jesse Walchuk, an agricultural officer with the Yukon government. The seven animals — all female, and each weighing about 200 pounds — apparently escaped from a farm in the Mendenhall subdivision area, west of Whitehorse, several weeks ago. People have occasionally spotted the animals in the bush, and some Mendenhall residents have been concerned to see the beasts regularly wandering onto their properties. "We're seeing them in our yards almost everyday," said Laurie Lee, who lives in Mendenhall.

"I am puzzled and surprised ... in my opinion, it does not make any sense," he said.

"The argument that it would be unfair to other communities, I find truly absurd and nobody can comprehend it. By the same token, I could say, 'Well, they should close the indoor swimming pool down in Dawson because there isn't one in Carmacks or Pelly Crossing.'"

Schoener said he's spoken with Klondike MLA, Premier Sandy Silver, about the issue.

"Unfortunately — and surprisingly — [he] seemed to support the decision by the department ... I'm truly puzzled," Schoener said.

Calls from CBC to the Yukon's health department, and to Silver, have not been returned. 

CBC also reached out to Wisniewski, but he was not available for comment.
