Korean Academy of Prosthodontics via NCBI
A survey was performed to identify the level of mouthguard use, awareness, wearability issues and attitude toward mouthguard among elite Korean Taewondo athletes. Results showed that, considering the high level of willingness to wear mouthguard if the problems rectified, it is thought that together with efforts in providing more mouthguard information, the work of sports dentistry to research and improve mouthguard will be invaluable in promoting mouthguard to more athletes.

Why won't my patient: Getting even your toughest patients to better oral health
Dentistry iQ
Is this scenario familiar? Your patient's home care is practically nonexistent. You bring in Mom and show her the situation. Everyone agrees that improvement is needed. You make a product recommendation, show the patient, and Mom how to use it and out the door they go. Six months later, nothing has changed. Mom just shrugs, and your patient, well, he or she seems to just care less. What we generally overlook in this situation is changing our tactics. Chip and Dan Heath, in their book, "Switch: How To Change Things When Change Is Hard" identify three core aspects that are needed to drive change.

As dentistry changes, practitioners must adapt
Sacramento Bee
America's dentists are stuck with a major, nagging toothache: Not enough people are going to the dentist; those who do don’t spend much. A combination of factors are reshaping the dentistry mold. Dental benefits by employers are eroding. Reimbursements rates by insurers are stagnant. Some patients are postponing — or giving up — their routine dental care. For many, it’s about scrambling to figure out a new future. For some, that means staggered scheduling and Saturday office hours in order to accommodate working adults, the folks mostly likely to have dental insurance.

Study: Basketball had highest rate of dental traumatic injuries
Greer Today
During football and basketball seasons dentists know they can expect safety-minded parents to be asking about mouth guards for their kids. Fortunately, mouth guard use has been mandated for high school football players since 1962. The NCAA subsequently adopted the same policy for college football in 1973. In addition to football, the mandate extends to other contact sports as well, including hockey, boxing and lacrosse. So which sport is the worst offender? Basketball.

The effect of ceramic primer on shear bond strength of resin composite cement to zirconia
Journal of the American Dental Association
Researchers investigated the use of ceramic primers combined with self-adhesive resin composite cements on the shear bond strength to zirconia and compared them with one conventional resin composite cement. Data showed that ceramic primer in combination with self-adhesive resin composite cement demonstrated a positive effect on SBS to zirconia and should be used for cementation. Long-term adhesion to ceramic plays an important role in the longevity of dental restorations. Therefore, the authors recommend that clinicians use a ceramic primer when cementing zirconia restorations.

When the dentist is your wife
National Post
Ontario's legislature has adopted a private member’s bill that seeks to loosen draconian regulations that prevented medical practitioners from providing legitimate professional services to their spouses. The restrictions were well-intentioned, and sought to ban sexual relationships between medical professionals and potentially vulnerable patients. But when enforced to their full effect, the law resulted in absurd cases where chiropractors were losing their licences for performing spinal adjustments on their significant others and dentists polished their spouse’s teeth at their own risk. Preventing sexual exploitation is a worthwhile goal, but this law simply went too far.

The story of Pearl Grey: Dentist turned author, adventurer
Dr. Bicuspid
It's hard to fathom what kind of parents give their son a girl's name. Surely they can't be oblivious to the virtual certainty that the child will be forced to fight throughout his life, like the Johnny Cash song "A Boy Named Sue" proclaims. Such, though, was the case of Dr. Lewis Grey, who named his son "Pearl." Grey, an Ohio farmer, became a dentist in 1861 by apprenticing himself with an established dentist — the professional norm at the time.
