However, today the same work is now accomplished with just one highly skilled and trained professional. The dental assistant has proven to be a necessity in the modern dental practice, with ever increasing educational and career opportunities. More

Well-paid dental assistants to blame for high costs? Please.
Dentistry IQ    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
The presidents of the Edmonton and Calgary Dental Assistants Association responded to an article posted by a dentist who blames the costs of dentistry on having to hire "quality" dental assistants. Wow. That's a new one, I must admit, writes Dentistry IQ editor Kevin Henry. My first reaction was, "You have to be kidding me!" However, on second glance, I think I must give kudos to the dental assistants in that part of the world who appear to be earning the pay they deserve ... and to the dentists who are paying them what they deserve.

Dentists nationwide partner with The Oral Cancer Foundation to raise awareness
PR Newswire    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
A serious change in the cause of oral cancer is taking place nationally, and its implications are impacting the American public in a manner that a decade ago no one would have predicted. For decades, oral cancer (also known as mouth cancer, tongue cancer, tonsil cancer, and throat cancer) has been a disease which most often occurred in older individuals, who during their lifetimes had been tobacco users. Most cases were ultimately the result of lifestyle choices. Today that paradigm has changed. A common, sexually transferred virus has replaced tobacco as the number one cause of oral cancers, Human Papilloma Virus number 16 (HPV16). This is one of the same viruses that are responsible for the majority of cervical cancers in women. More
