New concussion law guards children in sports
The Columbus Dispatch
Heads up, Ohio: The state is officially joining the nationwide trend of making head injuries in youth sports a legal matter. Under the law, a young athlete showing concussion symptoms must be removed from a game or practice and not be permitted to return to competition for at least 24 hours and until cleared by an authorized physician or licensed healthcare provider. Ohio joins 44 other states and Washington, D.C., that have passed laws similar to the first concussion-specific law covering youth sports, enacted by Washington state in May 2009.

Annual $2 billion spent on dental injuries prompts National Youth Sports Safety Foundation to sound the alarm on dental protection
PRWeb
In 2012, the National Youth Sports Safety Foundation predicted that more than 3 million teeth would be knocked out in youth sporting events that year. The foundation also said that athletes who don't wear mouth guards are 60 times more likely to suffer damage to their teeth. The cost of replacing these 3 million knocked out teeth can cost $9 billion initially and $90 billion over a lifetime. Fortunately, in the case of the worst injury, the knocked out tooth, there is an inexpensive backup plan: The American Dental Association Accepted Save-A-Tooth system. The Save-A-Tooth allows a knocked out tooth to be preserved for at least 24 hours until it can be re-implanted by a dentist.

The dentist's role in the prevention of sports-related orofacial injuries
International Dentistry SA
Many patients present requesting aesthetic dental treatment in order to rectify the sequelae of dental injuries received while playing sports.

Green cleaning and healthcare facilities
By Stephen P. Ashkin
In its simplest terms, green cleaning means cleaning to protect health without harming the environment. It refers to the use of cleaning chemicals, tools, equipment and other products that have a reduced impact on health and the environment when compared to conventional cleaning products used for the same purposes. While the adoption of green cleaning strategies has moved quickly in some industries, such as education, commercial offices and hotel/hospitality, it has moved at a slower pace in many healthcare locations.

The new face of oral cancer is getting younger and younger and sadly, the fastest growing segment of newly diagnosed cases is nonsmoking, young adults. Why is this?

Is there any such thing as good debt for a small business?
CreditCards.com via Fox Business
Debt often is associated with poor planning or being in financial straits. But for a small business, there are times when it's smart to use debt as a financing option. Knowing when is the tricky part. According to the Experian/Moody's Analytics Small Business Credit Index, there was a 20 percent increase in overdue payments that were less than 60 days late.
