    More common than arthritis, gum disease (periodontitis), an osteoimmune disease, affects millions of North Americans each year, and leads to bone loss. Researchers have identified Adseverin, a protein in the body, as the key driver behind the bone loss associated with the world's most common inflammatory disease.

  • What Red Flags Could Your Team Be Giving Off in the Interviewing Process?

    1 May 2015 | 9:00 am
    During the typical interviewing process, most companies focus on identifying red flags and weeding out candidates who are not ideal. While this is a necessary practice, employers should also give consideration to the red flags their team members could be waving, and how this may be deterring future hires. As the executive, managerial and professional labor market has become overwhelmingly candidate-driven in the last few years, more employers are realizing they must overhaul their interviewing procedures, to attract top performers who frequently have several job offers at their disposal.

    While large corporations in other industries may rely on automated applicant tracking systems to sift through resumes and attempt to identify the best candidates for an open position through keywords and algorithms, most dental practices employ a much simpler approach of reading through candidate resumes and CV’s manually.

There are two regularly used interview methods: The Traditional Interview and the Behavioral Interview. I highly recommend incorporating both when you interview candidates for your associate dentist or staff positions, as each method offers valuable insight about a candidate’s professional and personal qualities.

  • Caution: Falling Axioms

    David Baker
    6 May 2015 | 5:00 am
    With a background in advertising, I am keenly aware of the influence that engaging and colorful words can have on the acceptance of an idea. However, I had not connected this with the business axioms that are so often embraced without challenge. Axioms are “statements or propositions regarded as being established, accepted or self-evidently true.” I wondered about the cultural consequences of not challenging these underlying beliefs when I read an example in “The Hard Thing About Hard Things” by Ben Horowitz. It caught my attention, perhaps because I have often shared…

    Only One is Good There are three possible outcomes when adding technology to the office only one of which is good. One: The office buys a new high tech system then throws team members at it with little or no training and no plan for implementation. This all too common approach almost always results in frustrated staff and wasted money. Two: The dental office spends the money to buy a technology system then spends additional time and money training a staff person to use it.

    The modern practice is a long way away from the old dental practices serving up massive paper files, heavy metal dental equipment, and impossibly hard to reach on the phone. The reason for deploying cloud-based technology services may vary from practice to practice, but the fact of the matter is, cloud computing is going to take on an even more important role (whatever it may be) in your practice in the near future. According to a research conducted by In-Stat, the healthcare industry is expected to spend more than one billion dollars in public cloud computing services by the end of the year.

    Public health actions achieved positive health outcomes -  but fluoridation is not one of them.We've now learned that in the 1970's the sugar industry conspired with government officials at the National Institutes of Dental Research to take the heat off of sugar as a proven cavity-causer. Using tobacco industry tactics, "Big Sugar" convinced federal government dentists to look elsewhere for solutions such as unproven fluoride remedies.So it's no surprise that, after 70 years of fluoridation, tooth decay is at crisis proportions. And sugar is finally being blamed. For…
