Symptoms of measles may appear in oral cavity before other manifestations of disease
American Dental Association
Polio. Tuberculosis. Whooping cough. In the 20th century, thanks to vaccines and drugs, these diseases were under control in the U.S. But the needle is moving again on infections worldwide among certain thought-to-be-contained diseases. One of them is measles. The first signs of measles occur typically in the head and neck region and in the oral cavity. But some dentists may not have had the occasion to actually see these symptoms due to years of successful control of the disease.

Listening: A how-to guide for group practice administrators
By Jill Nesbitt
We've all heard it before; we are supposed to listen. We know we need to listen to our staff so we can understand their needs and concerns and then help solve the problems so we can accomplish the practice goals. But knowing and doing are very different. How do you really listen to your team? After a number of years, I learned just how much listening was necessary in each situation to understand the problem and then take action to solve it. Quickly.

Disgruntled team members tired of office affair
Dentistry IQ
QUESTION: Other team members and I suspect that the dentist and a team member are having an affair. We think it’s been going on about three or four months. While the dentist is divorced, the other team member is married, practically still a newlywed! The clues aren’t too hard to pick up on, including both of them leaving early one Thursday for "separate" trips. This wouldn't even be that bad except her work is starting to suffer and she's getting away with it. She takes off early more often than not, she takes long lunch breaks, and if she forgets to do part of her job, she barely gets a reprimand. She listens to us for a few days when we ask her to change her ways, but then goes back to doing as she pleases. I think the two of them believe they're being "careful" at work, but we can feel the tension and see the signs. What can we do? Do we just have to live with this until it blows over?
