DUX Dental Kicks Off 2014 Bib-Eze For Boob-Eze Campaign To Benefit Breast Cancer Charity PDF Print E-mail


OXNARD, CALIF. – SEPT. 2, 2014 – Today, DUX Dental kicks off the sixth-annual “Bib-Eze for Boob-Eze” campaign to benefit Barbells For Boobs, a non-profit breast cancer organization that is dedicated to the early detection of breast cancer, with an emphasis on women and men under the age of 40. During the Bib-Eze for Boob-Eze program, dental offices are invited to take a photo of the dental team using Bib-Eze disposable bib holders and then post it with a caption on social media sites with the hashtag #Bibeze4Boobeze. For every photo posted with the hashtag, DUX Dental will donate five dollars to Barbells For Boobs. In addition, the pictures with the most re-tweets and shares will be featured in the October issue of RDH Magazine. The Bib-Eze for Boob-Eze charitable campaign begins today and runs until Oct. 31 in honor of Breast Cancer Awareness Month. For more information visit www.bibezeforboobeze.com.

“We love the Bib-Eze for Boob-Eze campaign because it engages the dental industry in a fun, social way. But most importantly, the campaign is a great cause that recognizes Breast Cancer Awareness Month. We are excited to support Barbells for Boobs again this year because it is an organization making a tremendous difference for people who are often overlooked as at risk for breast cancer,” said Stacey Williams, Director of Sales and Marketing, DUX Dental.

During the last five years, the Bib-Eze for Boob-Eze campaigns have raised thousands of dollars to fight breast cancer. The campaign will culminate at the end of National Breast Cancer Awareness Month, when DUX Dental will donate up to $7,500 to Barbells For Boobs.

Barbells for Boobs has a two-fold mission. They aim to detect breast cancer in its earliest stage in order to prevent a infinitely more serious problem. The Barbells for Boobs grant program provides funding to breast centers nationally as a resource for thousands of men and women who do not qualify for government funding or other charitable resources in the detection of breast cancer. It is committed to raising awareness and diagnosis of breast cancer in symptomatic people who are under the age of 40, and who thus often don’t meet the current requirements for screening that favor patients over 40. For more information visitwww.barbellsforboobs.org.

Made from lightweight, elasticized fiber, Bib-Eze are disposable bib holders that remove the risk of cross-contamination from bib clips in the dental environment. Research shows up to 70 percent of reusable bib chains retain bacteria even after disinfection[1]. Bib-Eze disposable bib holders give the dental patient peace of mind that the holder is free of bacteria. They are also more comfortable for the patient since they are not cold on the neck, have no sharp edges and stretch to fit. Self-adhesive ends secure the one-time-use holder to any bib and are easy to remove for disposal.

Forum Offered at CDA North Gives Dentists a New Take on Technology Options PDF Print E-mail

SAN FRANCISCO—A corporate forum at CDA Presents in San Francisco asks general practitioners to consider cone beam computed tomography (CBCT).
“Principles and Clinical Applications of CBCT in Dentistry—Time to Change Strategy,” presented by Carestream Dental and led by Nestor Cohenca, D.D.S, examines the clinical applications of CBCT and reviews potential benefits of the technology for diagnosis and treatment planning. Attendees will gain a better understanding of the impact of CBCT on treatment outcome and improved predictability.
The forum takes place 3:00-5:00 p.m., Friday, Sept. 5. Two Continuing Education (CE) credits are available to attendees of the course.
“You cannot treat what you cannot see,” Cohenca, the course instructor, said. “CBCT provides us with a more accurate diagnosis and treatment strategy, thus, increasing successful outcomes and avoiding further complications.” 
Although CBCT technology has been available to dentists since the early 2000s—and has experienced a massive surge in popularity over recent years—most general dentists are still not trained to understand its benefits, indications and interpretation. 
CBCT scans provide a complete visual image covering multiple planes, including axial, coronal and sagittal. They offer several benefits over both 2D and computed tomography (CT) imaging, such as higher-resolution images; more accurate linear measurements; faster acquisition times, which reduce the chance for patient movement and retakes; lower radiation; and even user-friendly software.
“A single radiograph is a two dimensional shadow of a three dimensional object,” Cohenca said. “Mathematically, that means we only see 66 percent of the actual anatomy. A CBCT, however, produces a three-dimensional digital image while providing significantly less radiation to our patients.”
These 3D digital images also serve as an excellent tool when discussing treatment options with patients. It is much easier to convince a patient to accept a treatment plan when the doctor is able to reveal an issue on a 3D image that actually looks like the patient’s mouth rather than a flat, 2D image with distortion and overlap.
Cohenca serves as professor of endodontics and pediatric dentistry at the University of Washington and Seattle Children’s Hospital. He is a Diplomate of the American Board of Endodontics and was one of the pioneers in the use of CBCT technology.
CDA Presents takes places in San Francisco, Calif. Sept. 4-6, Moscone South. Attendees are also encouraged to visitCarestream Dental in booth number 1312.

White House Nabs Google's Megan Smith to be CTO of Administration PDF Print E-mail
Megan Smith.jpg
 
In 2009, President Obama created a (in my opinion) much needed post of White House CTO (Chief Technology Officer).  Since that time, the job has only been held by three people, with Ms. Smith being the third.
 
Personally, I can't think of many better choices.  Let's face it, for this job you want someone with some serious tech background and Ms. Smith certainly has that.  Until picked for the CTO position she was vice president of Google's department called Google X.  This is the free wheeling, outside the box thinking part of Google that deals with special products/ideas the employees come up with.  That area is where the way cool projects are developed.  She has seen the work done on Google Glass, the balloon based high altitude universal wireless project, and the car that drives itself (sans driver) just to name a few.  Someone with those types of projects under her belt should be well suited to help the US government with its technology issues, questions, and projects.
 
Let's face it, outside of areas like the NSA, CIA, and other national security type departments, the US government is badly in need of someone that can help them with technology (think the Obama-care website debacle as one).  
 
The government's need for someone with serious tech chops is pretty obvious.  We *need* someone like Megan Smith to help lead this charge.  Here's hoping she can do it.
 
Also, this is not a *guaranteed* type position.  This is a job that was created by President Obama in 2009.  That means the job has the potential to cease to exist when the next president is elected.  My personal feelings are that this should be a full time position that does not exist at the whim of one administration or another.  Heck, I even feel this is a cabinet level job… it's that important.  Of course, I'm just a molar mechanic and no one from the halls of power ever calls up and asks my opinion.  If they ever did, I know what I would say about this subject.  To me it's a pretty simple decision.
