Colon cancer linked to mouth infection?
HealthDay News via WebMD
An infection from a common type of mouth bacteria can contribute to colorectal cancer, a new study suggests. The bacteria, called Fusobacterium nucleatum, can attach to colon cells and trigger a sequence of changes that can lead to colon cancer, according to the team at Case Western Reserve University School of Dental Medicine. The researchers also found a way to prevent the bacteria from attaching to colon cells.

PROBE TIP FROM THE AAP

    Recent National Health and Nutrition Evaluation Survey (NHANES) data reported that almost half of American adults over the age of 30 have some form of periodontal disease, meaning there are much more people with periodontal disease, and many do not know it. The Academy continues to educate the general public to this staggering statistic, but you can help inform your referring colleagues. The AAP offers several resources to help you start the conversation about periodontal disease prevalence and what it means for collaborative care.

Michigan dentist to make Uganda his new home
DrBicuspid.com
For Dr. Ryan Shinska, moving to Uganda to provide dental care for the poor is a matter of putting his Christian faith into action. The young dentist will work in a clinic in Jinja, where most of the residents have never seen a toothbrush, never mind a dentist. On his second trip there five months ago, Shinska saw a boy trying to clean his teeth with twine. "Toothbrushes are kind of a foreign thing," he told DrBicuspid.com. "Lots of people there are walking around in a lot of pain because there's no access to care. They try to take out teeth and leave the roots in. It's pretty common. But I have the tools and resources to do something about it." (May require free registration to view article.)

Team morale suffers when dentist is constantly late
DenistryIQ
Q: Our dentist is always late every morning and coming back from lunch. His idea is that if he has a well-trained team it is OK for the boss to arrive later than he expects us to be there. What can we do to let our boss know that his lateness is not doing anything for the office morale? We, too, have children to get off to school in the mornings, but we are expected to always be on time no matter what else may be going on in our personal lives. He uses taking his children to school as his early-morning excuse. As for lunch, he feels that making patients wait for him makes him look more valued, or so he says.

RDH
Q: A friend began working for my boss four months ago. She is an RDA with coronal polishing on her license. Prior to working here, she worked at a pediatric dental practice for a few years. My dentist realized she could "clean" teeth and is now allowing her to perform more than 20 prophies a month.

New dentist has poor presentation skills, confuses patients
DentistryIQ
Q: Our passive dentist gives patients so many treatment choices that patients leave the office confused. How can we help our dentist have a bit more confidence in presenting treatment? We know he's young, but his case acceptance is very poor and we know why. Most of the team members who were with the older, previous owner have 20 or more years of experience, and he has five.

5 reasons why workplace flexibility is smart talent strategy
Forbes
Most of us, at some point in our lives, have worked in organizations that are rigid and unyielding. You know, cubicle world — acres of gray carpeting bathed in florescent light. We all know these kinds of work cultures breed mediocrity. They deaden the soul (not to mention productivity and creativity). A company may be able to survive being managed that way, but it won't soar. Because top talent will have no interest in working there.

Dentist who used copyright to silence her patients is on the run
Ars Technica
A lawsuit regarding a dentist and her ticked-off patient was meant to be a test of a controversial copyright contract created by Medical Justice. Just a day after the lawsuit was filed, though, Medical Justice backed down, saying it was "retiring" that contract. Now, more than a year after the lawsuit was filed, the case against Dr. Stacy Makhnevich seems to have turned into a case about a fugitive dentist.

Why sharks don't get cavities
The Atlantic
Sharks live lives that are, to human sensibilities, mostly unenviable. The creatures are constantly moving. They are hunted by predators far higher than they are on the food chain. They are often made to dine on man-made trash. But sharks, as a group, do have one evolutionary leg (fin?) up on us humans — one that has nothing to do with the terrifying sharpness of their enormous teeth and everything to do with the evolutionary resilience of those teeth. Sharks, it turns out, can't get cavities.
