Attracting top dental talent
By Scott E. Graham
If a dental practice has poor employee morale and is always looking for new hires, there is definitely something wrong there. Owners who are excellent clinicians can lack business savvy, which unintentionally creates problems that can be visible to the outsider looking in. In today's competitive dental marketplace, where candidates are researching potential employers as deeply as they are being researched as potential hires, attracting top talent requires a practice to be the best place to work in the local dental community. And it has to look that way.

NFL accused of quashing concussion-preventing helmets
Newsmax Health
With a device called ProCap, Bert Straus says he invented headgear that could reduce concussions in National Football League games. He never got the chance. The ProCap, which took him eight years to develop, was gaining ground among players until he brought it before the NFL committee dealing with brain injuries. The panel disparaged Straus's invention, prompting the league to warn players they risked death wearing it. Now the NFL and Riddell face lawsuits filed by more than 4,000 ex-players, including the family of San Diego Chargers standout Junior Seau, who committed suicide.

Through its policy decisions included in the new rules, HHS clearly indicates the importance of ensuring standalone dental benefits remain one of the options being offered to consumers, both inside and outside of the Exchanges, after full ACA implementation in Jan. 2014.

No visors? The ayes have it, for now in NHL
The Globe and Mail
There are two certainties in every NHL season: The visor debate will be resurrected when someone gets hit on or near an eye by a stick or a puck and there will be players who offer all sorts of reasons why they refuse to wear one. The question of making American Hockey League, ECHL and amateur players wear visors or forego any insurance payments is moot because using them is mandatory in those leagues but the NHL, home to the highest-paid players in the world, remains the most notable holdout.
