4 ways to handle the inevitable negative review
The Huffington Post
Jay Gierak writes, "My dentist once had a customer slander him on Yelp in an effort to get out of a bill. He asked if I could help, hoping I might know someone at Yelp fix the problem. The review persisted online for years, as did my dentist's pleas for help. My dentist's story is not uncommon. Negative reviews from unhappy customers, peeved ex-employees or close competitors are a challenge for local businesses, legitimate or not."

Beyond practice management: The pursuit of happiness
DrBicuspid.com
Dr. Don Deems writes, "All of us look for ways to care for our patients the best we can while also being a viable, profitable business owner. No one said we had to work for free, that we weren't entitled to the rewards that have come to us from the risks, investments, grit, and determination we have all taken on to be where we are today. Yet there is a fine line I would like you to look at very closely. It's the line between making money and doing the right thing for our patients, colleagues, and profession."

DrBicuspid.com
Coating toothbrush bristles with chlorhexidine appears to reduce concentrations of some harmful oral bacteria more than coating them with silver nanoparticles. A study presented at the International Association for Dental Research's 2013 annual meeting found that chlorhexidine-coated toothbrushes reduced concentrations of Streptococcus mutans by 99.8 percent 16 hours after the toothbrushes were immersed for three minutes in a microbe-containing suspension.

14 unhealthy things you're doing to 'save time'
TODAY
Too busy to stay healthy? It's no secret that leading a healthy lifestyle often feels like it takes more time than most of us have. So found a survey by the American Public Health Association in which 34 percent of adults said they were too busy to fit in things they knew were good for them, like eating right and exercising regularly. (Should you tackle both eating healthy and working out at the same time? Not necessarily. Do this healthy habit first for the best results, a new study finds.)

In a recent study, they showed less inflammation, less periodontal damage and better dental home care. However, their dental status was worse than that of nonvegetarians. Very few investigations have been conducted on the possible correlation between a vegetarian diet and periodontal health, and the sample sizes in these studies are small.

Atrophic patients have more options with new dental implant
DentistryIQ
Patients with severe atrophy of the jaw are not typically considered good candidates for dental implants. However, the introduction of a new type of implant five years ago is challenging that standard. Combined with the All-on-Four concept of inserting the implants, the new implant can benefit a wider range of patients, including those with degeneration of bone in the upper or lower jaw.

More action needed for seniors' oral health
The Huffington Post
Roughly 75 million Americans are considered to be the generation known as baby boomers, or those who were born between 1946 and 1964. This large portion of the population may have reinvented retirement and created a unique community for themselves, but they also have trouble with their oral health. According to a recent study by Procter & Gamble, baby boomers' dental health isn't up to par, creating other health issues throughout the body. Senior oral health is important to maintain because bacteria can build up and cause tooth decay, bad breath and gum disease.
