Youth concussion study helps orient prevention programs
Western University
When it comes to the causes of concussions in children and adolescents, it's all about four Ws for Douglas Fraser. "The real goal was to see who was getting injured — who, what, where and under what circumstances," said Fraser, a professor in the departments of Paediatrics, Physiology & Pharmacology and Clinical Neurological Sciences at Western's Schulich School of Medicine and Dentistry. "Once you answer those questions, then you can implement targeted injury prevention programs."

Dentistry iQ
We all know that the healthcare industry has been going through significant transformation. However, while many Americans struggle to obtain the oral health care they need, dentistry has remained largely untouched by reform.

One-third of Americans haven't visited dentist in past year
Gallup
About one in three U.S. adults say they did not visit the dentist at some point in the past 12 months. The 64.7 percent in 2013 who said they did visit the dentist at least once in the previous year is essentially unchanged from the rate found in 2008. Women are more likely than men to report visiting the dentist annually. These findings are based on interviews with 178,072 American adults conducted during 2013 and with 354,645 adults conducted during 2008 as part of the Gallup-Healthways Well-Being Index.

Reactions mixed to CMS decision to release payment data
By Pamela Lewis Dolan
For the first time since Jimmy Carter was president, the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services has posted physician fee-for-service payment data to its website for public review and analysis. While researchers and number crunchers applaud the move, some in organized medicine are issuing warnings that the data should be used with caution as it can be misleading when taken out of context. CMS made the file available with a caveat that there are limitations to the data — a point with which the American Medical Association agrees, which is why it has successfully advocated for more than three decades to keep it private.

More adults smile at idea of getting braces
New Orleans Advocate
While braces used to be almost exclusively an onerous rite of adolescence, improved technology, more affordable treatment and the fact that a stellar smile is now regarded as essential to professional and social success have led legions of adults in New Orleans and across the country to get orthodontic treatment later in life. According to data provided by the 17,000-member American Association of Orthodontists, about 20 percent of orthodontic patients in 2012 were older than 18. About 1.2 million adults were treated that year, a record high and a 40 percent increase from 20 years ago.
