  • Research finds tooth enamel fast-track in humans

    20 Nov 2014 | 9:32 am
    Researchers have discovered a link between prenatal enamel growth rates in teeth and weaning in human babies. The research found that incisor teeth grow quickly in the early stages of the second trimester of a baby's development, while molars grow at a slower rate in the third trimester. This is so incisors are ready to erupt after birth, at approximately six months of age, when a baby makes the transition from breast-feeding to weaning.

  • 3 Reasons You Can’t Just Ask Customers What They Want

    Larry Emmott
    17 Dec 2014 | 8:00 am
    From TechCrunch: “The first reason you can’t just ask customers what they want is that they aren’t always attuned to what they really need. Steve Jobs famously said, “People don’t know what they want until you show it to them.” via 3 Reasons You Can’t Just Ask Customers What They Want | TechCrunch. I first linked this article as an example of  “A car is not just a faster horse.” but found another gem as well. Typically, it is easier for people to review and comment on something that is placed in front of them rather than asking to imagine something that doesn’t yet…

    Computer keyboards are notorious grunge hideouts. Many studies have found keyboards to be covered with grime and crawling with germs. Incidentally the filthiest keyboards were found in lawyer’s offices, but that is another story. As dentists we have an obligation to keep our treatment room computers clean and germ free. There are various ways of doing this. One way is to use water proof rubberized keyboards that can be sprayed and wiped down. In broad terms there are two types of sprayable keyboards. One has the keys raised like this: These work but are hard to really clean as the user has…

Don’t Sue: As reported in the ADA News Dr. Yvonne Wong decided to file suit when she received a negative review on Yelp which she thought was false and unfair. The result Dr. Wong lost the suit, she has no legal recourse and to make it worse, much worse, she was ordered to pay over $80,000 in defendant’s legal fees.

So today is the Tuesday before Turkey Day and our office just had our annual Thanksgiving potluck luncheon (and of course, I ate too much).

This is a rather ubiquitous problem shared by many people as evidenced by the plethora of dental products on the market catering to sensitive teeth, Sensodyne Toothpaste being the most readily recognized.
