In Restoratives Community news, the International Association for Dental Research meeting kicks off this week in Barcelona, Spain, and we'll be bringing you several stories about dental materials and restorative techniques based on research presented at the conference. First up: one of the first studies to produce clinical data on the survival rates of one-piece zirconia implants. Read more.

And over in the Coaches Corner, Dr. Don Deems challenges readers to revisit the dreams they've given up on and renew a commitment to realizing them.
