Dr. Bicuspid via TheraBreath

Famous for their gapped-tooth grins and rub-some-dirt-on-it mentality, NHL players take the brunt of the battle, leaving everything — including their teeth — out on the ice.

That's where Dr. Donald Goudy Jr. — the official team dentist for the NHL's San Jose Sharks — comes in.

More concussions reported among high school athletes
Reuters via FOX News
Between 2005 and 2012, concussions among high school athletes became more common with every passing academic year, according to a new U.S. study. The results are consistent with other studies noting an increase in high school concussions in the last 10 years, though it's still not clear whether the rise is real or due to increased awareness of the symptoms and dangers of concussions — leading to more children with blows to the head being noticed and cared for, he told Reuters Health.

Using an employee file to improve your dental practice
By Jill Nesbitt
What if I told you there was an easy way to cut the staff drama, more consistently enforce office policy and have your team solve their own problems? An employee file serves all these purposes. An employee file is a folder for each of your staff members that stores their application, required medical forms, licenses and documentation about their work performance. The documentation piece can be simple — a blank piece of paper with the employee's name at the top works just fine. So, what do you write?
