Youth sports: You can learn a lot by talking to a dentist
Chambersburg Public Opinion
Tom Kuyper writes, "'OK now, you're going to feel a little pinch.' That's the same line every dentist tells you before they stick that needle in your mouth and give you a shot of novocaine. That's the line I think they all learned in dental school. 'Pinch?' I don't think so, wrong! And, why do they always ask you questions when they know you can't answer because your mouth is wide open hosting 10 fingers and a drill? Well at a recent dental visit to my dentist, Dr. Aaron Verbarg of the Phoenix Dental Studio, I had an interesting talk with him about dental issues as it relates to children and sports."

Broncos' Welker using his head in picking new helmet
By Denise A. Valenti
The NFL's conference championships are over, and the Super Bowl opponents are set — the Seattle Seahawks and the Denver Broncos. And the TV networks, radio broadcasts, Internet blogs and newspaper columns had plenty to say about Broncos wide receiver Wes Welker. Welker had walked onto the field the previous week for the first time after a series of concussions with a different mouth guard and an oversized helmet covering his head. The helmet was different from the one that he had worn earlier in the season and was chosen for added protection against head injuries.

The 3 modes of a universal adhesive: Part I — Self-etch
Dentistry IQ
Until the popularization of self-etch adhesives in the late 1990s, dentists had to rely almost exclusively on the total-etch technique. While this procedure results in strong enamel bonding, we know it can also be very technique-sensitive and involves several bottles and steps. Therefore dentists welcomed the introduction of one-bottle, self-etching materials. Although these materials typically involve some sacrifice of bond strength, they come with a lower risk of postoperative sensitivity and have a more straightforward technique. However, add in the additional concept of selective enamel etching, and it's easy to see why bonding techniques have become so confusing.

Website design key to dental practice growth
American Dental Association
Owning and managing a successful dental practice means more than just providing a quality service, according to PBHS. Dentists are faced with the challenge of finding time and resources to create an online presence, connect and communicate with existing and new patients and manage their online reputation. The first step in this process is building an effective website. The questions many dentists ask are, "Whose website stands out?" or "Which website is the most effective?" The keys to unlocking successful dental website design may take effort but the return is well worth it.
