5 years later: Haiti still recovering from earthquake — dental team takes mission trip
DentistryIQ
It's been five years since the horrors of a 7.0 magnitude earthquake rocked Haiti, and though things are much improved, the country is still far from recovered. Since January 2010, people have continuously visited Haiti to offer various relief efforts, including U.S. dental teams armed with the tools to relieve dental pain and replace teeth. One of the most recent groups to visit and offer new smiles is a group of nine dental professionals from various Aspen Dental offices. They came together from many areas of the country for the same purpose – to give back. The group was organized by Dr. Schatzie Vincent, whose parents hail from Haiti.

3-D technology becoming common in dental offices
USA Today
Name something you can easily get made for you in an hour: A pizza? Try half an hour, and that's counting delivery. Eyeglasses? Easy for places that have their own in-house lab. A dental crown? Wielding a 3-D scanner that looked like a bulky electric toothbrush, dentist Randy Raetz spent a few minutes in a patient's mouth one recent morning, getting three-dimensional images of a set of front teeth, the opposing arch and how they fit together in a bite.

Flabby gums are worse than flabby abs, says dentist
ScienceDaily
When you hear your dentist or dental hygienist reciting numbers while the inside of your mouth is being examined you may think your teeth are being counted. Not so. Your gum health is actually being assessed. "Gum health is measured by millimeters on a scale of 1 to about 9 with a calibrated dental instrument," says a clinical dentist. "The exposed space between the gum and the tooth or root is measured. The more space between the tooth and gum, the higher the number and the greater the likelihood of gum disease."

How to network with other dental office managers
By Jill Nesbitt
Sometimes, being a dental office manager can be a lonely job. The clinical team works together with the dentist in the operatories, perhaps you have a few front-desk team members who have become close — and here you are, sitting in your own little office working away by yourself. If part of your responsibility in the office is entering insurance payments, you know that you can spend hours working on the computer — all while the phone is attached to your ear as you are multitasking calling insurance companies to follow up on outstanding claims.

Contrary to popular belief, dental care for baby teeth is vital
Medical Xpress
Dental researchers hope to vastly improve oral health in children by countering a common misperception that dental care for baby teeth isn't important because they just fall out anyway. Researchers at Case Western Reserve University School of Dental Medicine in Cleveland and the University of Washington Northwest Center to Reduce Oral Health Disparities in Seattle plan to launch and test this fall a behavioral intervention to change what parents and caregivers believe about the importance of keeping baby teeth cavity-free.

Chewing gum could be beneficial
Dentistry Today
If you chew gum, you may be in luck. A new study suggests that chewing gum may be as beneficial as flossing. Researchers from the University of Groningen in Holland determined that chewing gum for 10 minutes can remove 100 million bacteria from the mouth. This number is roughly one tenth of the bacteria living in the mouth at any moment.

The importance of SWOT analysis in dental practices
Denistry IQ
In today's competitive environment, dental practices must become more business-minded. For years practices relied on demand to seek supply, or in simple terms, waited for patients to come to a dental practice when in need. There has recently been an uprising of the middleman, whose role is being played by more than just insurance. Today the middleman is Facebook, Twitter, Yelp, Google, and other social media and search engines.
