Impact of developmental defects in enamel; Keller on practice blind spots; imaging and dental artifacts

Dear DrBicuspid Member,

An international team of researchers examined more than 1,700 Brazilian schoolchildren from different sociodemographic backgrounds to learn about the impact of developmental defects in enamel. The results could help spotlight patients who will need closer attention from clinicians early in life to help them maintain a healthy mouth. Read Associate Editor Rob Goszkowski's article here.

Practice management consultant Jan Keller helps you explore, and work through, the blind spots in your practice. In her first column for DrBicuspid.com, she explores the idea of an annual meeting for your practice: why every practice, no matter the size, should have one; who should participate; and how to get the most out of the meeting.

Dental artifacts are a significant problem for positron emission tomography and magnetic resonance imaging (PET/MRI) scans. But a new method using active shape models and landmarks has been successful in finding -- and correcting -- artifacts. Read Associate Editor Rob Goszkowski's article here.

In case you missed this last week. The authors of new review published in the Journal of Dental Research hope to increase the understanding of dental, oral, and craniofacial manifestations of rare bone diseases and improve the ability to diagnose and treat these conditions. They identify four physiologic processes that cause these diseases and detail their dental manifestations. Read more here.

The American Association of Orthodontists Annual Session starts in a couple of days. The American Association of Endodontists Annual Session is next week in Washington, DC. We're also less than a month from CDA Presents in Anaheim, CA. Will you be attending any of these conferences? How do you determine which sessions you will attend when you are at a conference? I'd love to hear your thoughts.
