Scientists conclude dinosaur had gum disease
China Daily
About 190 million years ago, a dinosaur got a toothache after biting into something hard. In fact, the damage was so bad, it damaged the gum. Scientists found the fossilized jawbone of that Sinosaurus, which could be the earliest discovered animal that had a dental disease. Scientists from China, the United States and Canada held a dental consultation on the dinosaur, taking X-rays and writing a report on its toothache, which recently was published in Chinese Science Bulletin.

How much will healthcare cost in retirement for dental professionals?
DentistryIQ
Healthcare costs rank as one of retirees' biggest financial concerns. But the sooner you plan for this cost, the better you'll feel about your retirement security. Keep in mind, too, that the chances of those costs being offset by retiree healthcare insurance grow slimmer each year, as fewer and fewer employers extend healthcare benefits to retirees.

Surgical Restorative
The free gingival graft is a surgical procedure frequently used in periodontics to increase the amount of keratinized tissue surrounding a tooth or a dental implant. Keratinized tissue plays a major role (around teeth and dental implants), helping to maintain and facilitate oral hygiene. This surgical technique was introduced almost 50 years ago in 1966.

The importance of reference checks

Q: "Do you contact every reference listed by a new employee?"
A: Dr. Sheri B. Doniger writes, "This is a very interesting question. I know that in our quest to hire someone who we feel is a perfect match from the initial interview, we may skip over one of the most important parts of the new employee acquisition paradigm. We had a recent experience with a prospective employee. She looked great on paper. She wanted the hours we had posted, and we decided upon a mutually agreeable salary. She was anxious to start as soon as possible." (May require free registration to view article.)

Busting dental myths
RDH
We've all had that uncomfortable moment when the way we practice is challenged. Perhaps while sitting in a CE course or maybe it was conversation with that new hygienist and recent graduate your office just hired. It is easy to be dismissive and think it's "just their opinion," but more often than not, the information or the conversation haunts us a bit, and we think, "What if they are right?"
