ABC News
Mia St. John is obsessed with getting whiter, cleaner teeth. The five-time World Boxing Council champion in the super welterweight division said her quest for pearly whites grew so extreme she was brushing and bleaching constantly until her dentist intervened.

It takes a team
By Kimberly Bland, CDA, EFDA, M.Ed.
From the late 1800's up through the mid-20th century we recognized a small team of individuals as our total oral healthcare experts: the family dentist and his dental assistant later joined by the dental hygienist and the dental laboratory technologist served all the needs of the dental consumer.

Restroom hand dryers spread more germs than paper towels, study finds
HealthDay via Medline Plus
Those air-blown hand dryers in public restrooms may spread far more germs than conventional paper towels, a new study suggests. British researchers placed a harmless type of bacteria on the hands of volunteers in order to simulate poorly washed hands.

7 reasons your dental practice should move to the Cloud
DentistryIQ
"Companies that don't take advantage of cloud computing will be in the minority in less than six years." These words come straight from a recent article in Inc. magazine. Conversely, if your practice is considering a cloud-based computing system, you'll be in the majority in 2020. Dental practices are not immune to this technological shift. Driven in part by the need for mobile computing and the use of electronic health records, more dental practices are moving to the cloud.

Dental Products Report

The National Dairy Council works hard to convince us that their product helps us grow "strong teeth and bones," though many people don't realize that the calcium in dairy lowers the body's pH balance and is difficult to digest and utilize, especially when pasteurized.

Addressing concerns about teeth grinding in young children
Inside Dentistry
Questions to dentists and staff from parents about preschool children "grinding their teeth" while sleeping are very common because parents are often concerned that the child is causing damage to their dentition. Although the noise from bruxism may be unsettling for parents when it is coming from their young child, fortunately it is usually not harmful. Grinding is commonly reported in children under age 7 and typically stops around the time their first permanent molars erupt.

Myths about denture patients
Dental Economics
In today's economy, dentists are learning new techniques and procedures as a way to increase production in their offices, and to reduce open time in their schedules. Others are increasing marketing spending to help drive new patients to their practices. Given this scenario, dentists today should consider removable prosthodontics as a viable source of both new patients and income to their practices.
