Week in Review: Cone-beam imaging and your practice; ransomware attacks; and student loans

Dear DrBicuspid Member,

DENVER - One of the most popular presentations at any ADA annual meeting is the one given by technology expert Dr. John Flucke. On Thursday, Dr. Flucke gave a well-attended and entertaining presentation on the topic of how cone-beam technology can improve a general practitioner's practice. Read our coverage here.

The best part of covering a meeting such as ADA's is getting to talk with people who are making a difference. Whether its day-to-day practice, a new technology, or some subtle shift in thinking that reflects today's, and tomorrow's, reality, it's inspiring to hear what those involved have to say. I know I speak for everyone here at DrBicuspid.com when I write that we do appreciate the opportunity to bring you their stories.
