Could red wine be used to prevent dental cavities?
MNT
Its healthful effects on the heart are well documented, but a new study suggests another part of the body may benefit from moderate red wine consumption: our teeth. The researchers behind the new study, which is published in the Journal of Agricultural and Food Chemistry, explain that the oral cavity is "an enormously complex" and unique habitat within the human body. Hundreds of microbial species co-exist within the human mouth simultaneously. Because the teeth are "non-shedding surfaces," microorganisms are able to adhere to them for long periods of time, which can lead to the formation of biofilms and dental plaque.

4 bad excuses dentists use to avoid Internet marketing
Dentistry IQ
In my experience, Internet marketing has helped my dental practice more than anything else I've tried. I've gotten lots of new patients just from hiring an agency to do search engine optimization (SEO), among other things, for me. Although it's very useful, many of my colleagues are afraid to make that leap to Internet marketing for various reasons. But these reasons aren't credible and they lead to less qualified people taking business from the dentists who really know what they’re doing.
