How do you manage a patient undergoing an allogeneic bone marrow transplant?
Oasis Discussions
The allogeneic bone marrow transplant (BMT) is a medical procedure that may be employed for the treatment of several hematologic malignancies including, but not limited to, aplastic anemia, myelodysplastic syndrome, acute and chronic leukemias and lymphomas. BMTs typically involve the insertion of a central venous catheter (CVC), high dose chemotherapy and, in some cases, total body irradiation, prior to the infusion of the related/unrelated donor stem cells. This procedure carries a significant risk of morbidity and mortality. Patients generally require a period of hospitalization in isolation for approximately four weeks for recovery during which time they will be pancytopenic.

Tackling infection control, behind-the-scenes
Dental Assting Divas
Infection Control in the dental office has been a recent hot topic. At East Berlin Smiles, we have always made it a standard to uphold the guidelines for infection control by the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). Before you enter the examining room, all surfaces, such as the dental chair, dental light, drawer handles and countertops have been cleaned and decontaminated. As often as possible, we will use disposable items that are discarded after each patient. Non-disposable items like the dental tools or handpieces are cleaned and sterilized between patients.

Why every dentist should participate in Dentistry from the Heart
Dentistry IQ
Twitter 0 LinkedIn 10 Share It's an unfortunate fact that in the current age of rapidly advancing medical technology, not everyone can afford even the most basic dental care. Medical insurance can often be too expensive for many people, and those without insurance find themselves unable to afford some of the most important procedures needed to ensure dental health. To serve as a solution to this dilemma, Dr. Vincent Monticciolo founded Dentistry from the Heart (DFTH). DFTH originally began as a free day of dental care offered from Dr. Monticciolo's office. Twelve years later, it's burgeoned into an organization that includes hundreds of other dental practitioners with events in a number of other countries, including Ireland, Canada, Puerto Rico, and Australia.

Facts and myths about tooth decay
Dr. Perrone
Tooth decay results from the action of bacteria that live in plaque. Plaque is a sticky, whitish film formed by bacteria and food debris which adheres to the pellicle (a protein layer on the tooth surface). The plaque bacteria sticking to tooth enamel breakdown the sugar and starch from food particles in the mouth to produce acid.
