All of your patients are famous
Dentaltown Magazine
Imagine for a moment if a patient of yours recently died. During the course of his life he spent a small fortune on his failing teeth. He had numerous extractions over the years, finally getting dentures and in his remaining years, he owned multiple sets of dentures. Are you proud of the care you provided or do you consider his dental time with you less than successful? Ultimately, this can be a glass half-full vs. half-empty type of discussion.

More than just the 'girls up front'
By Theresa Sheppard
A well-trained insurance administrator and treatment coordinator are valuable members of the dental team. They can usually assist the doctor with increasing monthly production by several hundred to several thousand dollars. Just think of what that would do for your practice. Only the doctor can diagnose and determine a treatment plan. But after the treatment plan is complete, the insurance administrator can add valuable insight in respect to sequencing and timing of specific treatments. The key is open communication between doctor and team.

Yahoo Sports
Generally, the enumerated sporting goods advances called for focus squarely on helmets and padding. Now, one new biometric company feels it may have an answer that will help make it much more clear when a player has suffered a case of head trauma, and it doesn't involve a new helmet or more or better padding. Rather, it focuses on the technology involved in the oldest and most common part of a player's gear: Their mouthpiece.

Scientist says human teeth 'no longer fit for purpose'
Daily Mail UK via DentistryiQ
Human teeth are "no longer fit for purpose" and we could eventually grow a beak one day, scientists have claimed. British researchers are exploring several ways in which humans could develop better teeth, or even a beak like a pufferfish to avoid having to visit the dentist. Scientists from the University of Sheffield have said that having a limited supply of teeth is impractical as we live longer than ever before. They have isolated the cells responsible for enabling fish to create an endless supply of teeth throughout their life.
