In 1976, I did not know what I wanted to do with my life until a friend told me about a dentist who was hiring and was willing to train someone to be his assistant, Cynthia K. Bradley says. I took the job and the rest is history. I initially started as an on-the-job trained assistant, which lasted six months.

Several genes affect tooth development in the first year of life, according to the findings of a study conducted at Imperial College London, the University of Bristol in the U.K. and the University of Oulu in Finland.
