Quicker, easier, and safer infection control products for the dental assistant
Inside Dental Assisting
The implementation of infection control in the dental setting requires a team approach. Although the ultimate responsibility of an effective infection control program resides with the dentist, all team members play integral and critical roles. Dental assistants and hygienists are the team members who provide the daily operation of most infection control protocols for the dentist. These personnel clean and disinfect operatories, maintain dental unit waterlines to an acceptable quality, and process instruments such that they are packaged and sterile and ready for use in subsequent dental procedures. Each of these activities requires time, care, and attention to detail.

All-female dental staff tired of boss being politically incorrect
DentistryIQ
QUESTION: I recently read an article regarding political correctness in the workplace. The dentist I work with is oblivious to political correctness. Very few of us who work with him feel comfortable truly sharing our ideas with him. The dentist is the one male in the practice and he is the practice owner. We are a staff of six women, and unfortunately he often makes us feel inferior because we’re women. How do we steer him toward being politically correct, or is it too late?

Coaching good people to become a great team
AADOM
Teamwork is at the heart of all great achievement. The question isn't whether teams have value, it's whether we acknowledge their value and use it to become better team players. Without a well-functioning team, you know that your practice will be held back and that you will waste a great deal of your energy. When your team is in a state of disharmony or dysfunction, everyone and everything is held back. On the other hand, when your team is coordinated, working cohesively toward a common set of goals, and they feel a sense of co-ownership of your practice, the practice can't help but thrive.

Research finds tooth enamel fast-track in humans
ScienceDaily
Researchers have discovered a link between prenatal enamel growth rates in teeth and weaning in human babies. The research found that incisor teeth grow quickly in the early stages of the second trimester of a baby's development, while molars grow at a slower rate in the third trimester. This is so incisors are ready to erupt after birth, at approximately six months of age, when a baby makes the transition from breast-feeding to weaning.
