10 steps to solid fees for your dental practice
Dentistry IQ
Fee adjustments are a necessary part of running a high quality dental practice. If you're hesitant to increase them, it's important to ask yourself if you're compromising quality for low fees. Do you forego necessary investments in staff training? Do you bypass updated equipment and more efficient systems because you're afraid you can't afford more than the status quo?

NBC Sports
Major League Baseball has unveiled the first step in an initiative aimed at reducing pitcher injuries. It's called "Pitch Smart," designed to educate youth players, parents and coaches about how to better avoid arm injuries. This is important because, as Dr. James Andrews noted last spring when a rash of Tommy John surgeries hit Major League Baseball, the cake on arm injuries is often baked back when the pitcher is young, not when he is already a professional.
