Are your dental team members lone 'silos,' or do they take 'team' seriously?
Dentistry IQ
General Motors chief executive officer, Mary Barra, and the company she runs are taking a beating over the ignition switch fiasco that, as of this writing, has led to considerable fallout for the corporation that taxpayers bailed out just a few years ago. As Ms. Barra faced scrutiny during hearings on Capitol Hill, during her testimony she lamented the "silos" in the organization and a "culture" that was focused more on cost. No question, GM is a huge company, and what society is witnessing is yet another example of what system failure looks like on a titanic scale.

Learning how things fall apart: How bonded materials, from airplane wings to dental crowns, lose their bonding
Massachusetts Institute of Technology via ScienceDaily
Materials that are firmly bonded together with epoxy and other tough adhesives are ubiquitous in modern life — from crowns on teeth to modern composites used in construction. Yet it has proved remarkably difficult to study how these bonds fracture and fail, and how to make them more resistant to such failures. New research reveals how bonded materials, from airplane wings to dental crowns, lose their bonding.

Viewing dentistry in a new light
University of California, San Francisco via Medical Xpress
Dental X-rays expose patients to radiation, require time to process, and can only "see" a limited amount inside the mouth. Now new optical techniques developed by UC San Francisco's Daniel Fried, Ph.D., use light to take instantaneous digital images that can provide a better picture of one's teeth and could one day zap cavities with pinpoint precision.
