The obstacles to dental care for adults with disabilities
The Globe and Mail
When Graeme Rush is happy, he jumps up and down. When he is unhappy or in pain, he sometimes hurts himself, biting his arms or banging his head with his fists. Mr. Rush, now 26, was diagnosed with autism at the age of three. He does not speak or write. For months beginning in 2006, he banged his head so hard and so often that he permanently damaged one ear. His parents, suspecting his behaviour might have something to do with his teeth, sought dental treatment.

McGill low cost dental clinic making big move
CJAD800FM
McGill University is moving its low cost dental service clinic closer to campus and the clients they serve. The undergraduate teaching clinic is moving from the Montreal General Hospital to a bigger space right across the street from the university campus on Sherbrooke at McGill College Avenue. Dental students offer basic services under close supervision of professors at a lower cost than that of a regular dentist's office. Their clientele is mostly retirees, immigrants and low-income earners.

Halloween candy: A tooth's worst nightmare
Natural Gumption
What kid doesn't love to stuff his face with every halloween candy he can possibly imagine? On Halloween night, he enters the veritable buffet of candy and treats. While he may be satisfying his sweet tooth and perhaps overdoing to the point of utter gastronomical distress, he actual teeth may be undergoing their own distress. Of course, it's to be expected. We all know candy and teeth do not get along, but there are some candies that are far worse than others. This shouldn't put a dampener on the night’s festivities, but it's good to know ahead of time about the journey your child's are about to embark on (and your teeth too)!

Challenges an office manager faces: Managing the schedule
By Jill Nesbitt
One of the most critical responsibilities an office manager has is to manage the schedule. A properly managed schedule keeps the dental staff busy and reduces chit-chat time. It also keeps the focus on our patients instead of on "what did you do last weekend" conversations. The schedule dictates our profitability and is a visual reminder of our effectiveness. So, we know it’s important — but how does an office manager successfully manage the schedule?

Grinding your teeth
Castanet
Grinding your teeth, or bruxism as we call it in dentistry, is a condition that I observe daily in my practice, but many patients I meet don't have a clear understanding of the significance of their symptoms or whether something should be done about it.

Dentists say you need to floss, Science says you don't.
Forbes
While working as a research fellow at the Primate Research Institute at the University of Kyoto in Japan, French ethologist Jean-Baptiste Leca witnessed a sight that would prompt a toothy smile from any dentist. One day, a 14-year-old female Japanese macaque named Chonpe plucked a string of hair, stretched it taut between her hands, and ran the strand between her teeth. She was flossing.

Scientific American
Which came first: fangs or bony armor? For years, paleontologists have thought that the first bones to emerge were teeth, and that the protective armor coverings of early fish, made of similar material, followed. But now, a study reveals that the truth is the other way around.
