Natural Landmarks Preservation Contest Highlights What’s Worth Saving

Posted on February 28, 2020

Vote for your favorite Chicago, Dallas, Houston and Seattle-area sites


Vote for the landmark you think is mots "worth saving" at aae.org/landmarks


The American Association of Endodontists (AAE) – representing the dental specialists who save your natural teeth – is launching today the second “Worth Saving” Landmarks Contest. This is your chance to vote aae.org/landmarks for your favorite of these four landmarks: Dallas’ White Rock Lake Park, The Houston Arboretum and Nature Center, Olympic National Park just outside of Seattle and Chicagoland’s Illinois Beach State Park.  The competition is meant to connect the importance of saving your natural teeth with the preservation of other precious treasures, like beautiful U.S. landmarks.

“Along with your natural teeth, endodontists understand the inherent value of saving things that are meaningful to people,” said AAE President Dr. Keith V. Krell. “We are thrilled to host a contest for the second year in a row that highlights four important natural landmarks throughout the U.S. that are meaningful to so many local citizens and visitors.”

Voting begins today and is open until April 22, 2020, at 5 p.m. PST. The landmark with the most votes will receive $20,000 toward its preservation fund and a goal of $30,000 or more in free endodontic services in the city in which it is located. Last year, the Charles River Esplanade took home the crown of landmark most worth saving; therefore, the city of Boston received $59,000 in free endodontic care.

Read more about last year’s contest here.

“We had a tremendous experience being part of AAE’s inaugural landmarks contest last year,” said Michael Nichols, Executive Director of the Esplanade Association. “The funds we received to program, enhance and maintain the park were a fitting way to honor the 10th anniversary of the park being named a Boston Landmark by the Boston Landmarks Commission. Being named ’the Landmark Most Worth Saving in America’ in 2019 will help us work to revitalize the Esplanade for the next decade and beyond.”

These four beautiful contest locations feature nature at its best.

        The White Rock Lake Park is located approximately five miles northeast of downtown Dallas and encompasses over 2,000 acres of land and water. The park offers numerous family destinations around the lake including picnic areas, historic facilities, sailboat marinas and a popular 9.33-mile trail system that encircles the lake.

        The Houston Arboretum and Nature Center is located just a few miles from downtown Houston and is a 155-acre urban nature sanctuary dedicated to educating visitors about the natural world and protecting crucial native habitats in the heart of the city. Visitors can enjoy nature by walking on almost five miles of trails, exploring hands-on exhibits in the Nature Center building, or attending one of several hundred yearly classes and events.

        Olympic National Park is located just outside of Seattle and is one of the best places in the country to see and feel the wild. The park encompasses nearly a million acres and protects a vast wilderness, thousands of years of human history and several distinctly different ecosystems.

        The Adeline Jay-Geo-Karis Illinois Beach State Park offers a full range of recreation opportunities at one of the most unique and beautiful natural settings in America. The 4,160-acre park is the only remaining beach ridge shoreline left in the state, with dunes and swales, sprawling marshes, forests of oak and vast arrays of animal life and vegetation.

Colgate-Palmolive $1M Gift to Support Penn Dental Care Center for Persons with Disabilities, Establish Innovation Laboratory

Posted on February 28, 2020

Penn Dental Medicine has received a $1 million gift from the Colgate-Palmolive Company to help advance patient care through the new Penn Dental Medicine Care Center for Persons with Disabilities and the development of the Colgate Innovation Laboratory there. Through the Innovation Laboratory, to be embedded within the Center, Colgate experts will work side by side with Penn Dental Medicine faculty, students, and researchers throughout the University of Pennsylvania to assess needs and develop and refine new dental products that facilitate optimal dental care for patients with disabilities.

"This dynamic partnership with Colgate-Palmolive, a global leader in oral care, will help Penn Dental Medicine address the diverse dental needs of patients with a full spectrum of disabilities. For some, that may include the creation of entirely new types of personal care products," says Penn Dental Medicine Dean Mark Wolff. "Together, we will work to make the lives of this underserved population easier and healthier."

A fall 2020 opening is projected for Penn Dental Medicine's new Care Center for Persons with Disabilities, to be located within the School's Robert Schattner Center at 240 S. 40th Street. The 3,500-square-foot Center will be dedicated to providing preventive and interceptive oral health care for patients of all ages living with all forms of disability and is estimated to serve approximately 10,000 patients per year in the 12-chair facility. The Center will be outfitted to serve patients on wheelchairs as well as a gurney. In addition, there will be a stimulation room with low lighting and sound baffling to accommodate patients with sensory sensitivities.

Worldwide, millions of people—as many as 57 million in the United States alone—live with acquired and developmental disabilities. Many lack access to properly trained dentists and dental specialists, and to the equipment and products required for successful treatment. In addition to providing the highest quality of patient care and support, the Center's comprehensive educational program will train Penn Dental Medicine students to confidently provide safe, effective, and empathetic care to patients with disabilities.

"A key goal of the Center will also be to educate practicing dentists, hygienists, teachers, nurses, and caregivers on how preventive practices and teamwork can improve the quality of life for both the disabled and their families," adds Dean Wolff. "We plan to develop and report on best practices through targeted publications as well as organized dental and research groups nationwide." Penn Dental Medicine will also measure the impact of this type of innovation model on student learning and build data on how a prevention-focused approach can improve the care experience, oral health, and quality of life for patients.

"The creation of the Colgate Innovation Laboratory and innovation team at Penn Dental Medicine marks an unprecedented opportunity to help overcome the disparity in oral health care for patients with disabilities by developing innovative, cost-effective products that will improve the quality of their lives," says Patricia Verduin, Chief Technology Officer at Colgate-Palmolive.   "We look forward to joining forces with our esteemed colleagues at Penn Dental Medicine to aid in the development and implementation of novel preventive and therapeutic strategies to address the oral care needs of people with disabilities in collaboration with their caregivers and healthcare providers, ultimately improving their oral and overall health," says Maria Ryan, Chief Dental Officer at Colgate-Palmolive.







Poor Dental Health is Associated With Dementia

Posted on February 28, 2020

An article published in Experimental Biology and Medicine (Volume 245, Issue 3, February, 2020) (https://journals.sagepub.com/doi/pdf/10.1177/1535370220904924) describes an association between dental health and dementia. The study, led by Dr. J. L. Caffrey, in the Physiology and Cardiovascular Research Institute at the University of North Texas Health Science Center in Fort Worth, Texas (USA), reports that a history of chronic dental health issues increase the odds of dementia.

As the world population successfully ages, increasing numbers of the elderly are experiencing mental lapses that gradually progresses into Alzheimer's disease. Despite the prodigious societal and medical cost of this emerging pandemic, a clear cause and resulting therapeutic approach remain elusive.  Recent studies suggest that damage to the brain results from local inflammatory cells defending the brain against a recurrent though low-level microbial assault. This hypothesis suggests that any process which helps maintain an infectious reservoir (chronic oral, lung and/or gastrointestinal illness), promotes the access of the resident microorganisms to the brain, or compromises the brain's ability to exclude microbes from entry would increase the odds associated with acquiring dementia. One corollary within this hypothesis suggests that the microorganisms which populate the mouth have a privileged route of access to the brain by traveling backward along the short nerves between the brain and mouth.

In the current study, Dr. Caffrey and colleagues examined the association between oral health and dementia using an unprecedented number of new dementia cases (200,000+) identified in the National Insurance Database for the entire population of Taiwan. There were more women affected than men which appeared to result from their greater representation in the aging population. Factors that alter perfusion or oxygenation of the brain like stroke, hypertension, diabetes and pneumonia increased the odds of dementia. Records from the prior 10 years indicated that dental procedures that quickly restored homeostasis lowered the odds of dementia and a history of chronic dental problems raised the odds of dementia. Dr. Caffrey said, "Prevention and delay are key goals in the approach to dementia. Good dental care and perhaps simple daily dental hygiene with regular brushing and rinsing with an antibacterial mouthwash may be a productive intervention, especially among populations already having increasing difficulty performing their own routine daily care. Second, the impressive analytical power of this broad database strongly suggests that a coalition is needed among patients, the medical/dental establishment and major cloud-based enterprises to create an even better worldwide resource database to allow the research community to efficiently examine a wide spectrum of current and future public health issues with a never-before-realized confidence and precision."

Dr. Steven R. Goodman, Editor-in-Chief of Experimental Biology & Medicine, said, "Caffrey and colleagues have utilized the Taiwan National Insurance database to study associations with dementia. They demonstrate an association between good dental health and decreased occurrence of dementia. These results, while not demonstrating causation, suggest that an important prevention procedure could be steps as simple as daily use of anti-microbial mouthwash and seeing dentists on a regular schedule."

Dentsply Sirona Announces One Hour – One Visit™ Toolkit for CEREC Users

Posted on February 28, 2020

New marketing kit elevates U.S. CEREC users’ ability to promote one-hour, one-visit crown solutions to customers.

When surveyed, patients overwhelmingly said that they would consider switching dentists if they had the option of a one-hour, one-visit crown. That’s exactly what Dentistry Powered by CEREC offers.

To help doctors build their practice through single-visit, in-office restorations, Dentsply Sirona put together an extensive and integrated marketing toolkit—now available to download by U.S. CEREC® system owners at https://dentsplysirona.com/1hour1visit.

The One Hour – One Visit toolkit elements can be downloaded, customized and used in a number of compelling ways.

     • Showcase the message in your office with a waiting room video, posters and patient brochure

     • Enhance your online presence through social media, banner advertising and content on your own website

     • Reach patients in their homes with a reminder postcard and a series of informative emails

The One Visit – One Hour toolkit is designed to give practices the flexibility needed to make it their own. Materials can be download and used “as-is,” or customized with a practice logo, contact information and other messaging. Use all the materials for a complete campaign or pick and choose what will work best for your practice.

“Marketing my practice with CEREC has really differentiated myself from others in the community,” said Dr. Mona Patel, Bayshore Dental in Whitefish Bay, WI. “My existing patients are referring friends and family and new patients are calling asking for a CEREC crown by name. Continuing the highest standard of care and patient experience with all the in-office materials has been a marketing tool in itself. I cannot practice a day without my CEREC technology, and I love that my patients can understand why!"

The University Center for Dentistry in Basel Is Dentsply Sirona's First Major University Project in Switzerland

Posted on February 27, 2020

For the very first time the International Special Clinic Solutions (ISCS) team at Dentsply Sirona brought to life a major project at a Swiss university. The university dental clinics, the school dental clinic and public dental clinic of the University Center for Dentistry in Basel (UZB) have been brought together in the new building, allowing patient treatments, teaching and research to be closely interlinked under a single roof.


Since 2019 dentists, dental and prophylactic assistants and hygienists have been performing more than 80,000 treatments a year in the new five-story UZB building. By merging the previously separate sites, the goal is to offer personnel, patients and students the best possible technical infrastructure for working, a complete range of treatments and an innovative learning environment that satisfies the state of the art. Dentsply Sirona International Special Clinic Solutions was selected as the project partner after a public tender and accompanied this pioneering turnkey solution from the groundbreaking ceremony through to the handover of the keys in August 2019.

Everything under a single roof

The UZB provides dental care at cantonal, regional and national level and, as a Basel-based center of expertise for dentistry, offers both primary care and specialist treatments for demanding cases in addition to university research and teaching. Thanks to the organizational, procedural and spatial pooling of expertise and strengths, the UZB promises to ensure more efficient interdisciplinary exchanges, less bureaucracy and enhanced teaching and research.

To achieve this goal, the UZB opted for 84 Dentsply Sirona Sinius treatment centers with additional state-of-the-art endodontics and implantology functions as well as a further 5 Intego Pro Turn treatment centers, which enable ergonomic working for both right- and left-handed users. Moreover, the 57 intraoral Heliodent Plus X-ray units can be used in a variety of ways in all areas of the UZB. During pre-clinical training at the UZB, future dentists and dental technicians have 33 simulation units at their disposal.

With this large-scale project, Dentsply Sirona is underpinning its position as a global market and technology leader in the field of digital dentistry: Students and teachers are supported during pre-clinical training by a multimedia teaching system. The clinical equipment management software solution Vionex offers safe and configurable hygiene management and is a valuable tool for all Dentsply Sirona treatment centers and simulation units. With this, the hygiene and technical status can be quickly monitored from anywhere in the clinic. Furthermore, the tracking of all instruments in the center ensures smooth work processes, the highest possible hygiene standards and comprehensive work documentation.

With commissioning now complete, Andreas Stutz, CEO of the UZB, draws a positive conclusion: "The University Center for Dentistry in Basel, UZB, chose Dentsply Sirona within the scope of a public tender as its offering best satisfied the criteria. In addition to the price and functional requirements, we also set store by reference projects and services and support. The delivery, installation and commissioning of the 89 treatment centers and the 32 simulation units in the phantom hall went without a hitch, something which certainly cannot be taken for granted. Just a few months after commissioning, we can confirm that, based on user feedback, the decision for Dentsply Sirona was spot on."

First visitors and further projects

The first delegations of foreign university deans, professors and dental specialists have already visited the new building and were able to see for themselves the impressive realization of this project against the backdrop of day-to-day university life.

Following the success seen in Basel, the next major Swiss project for ISCS is pending: In opting for 78 Sinius treatment centers and 14 Heliodent Plus X-ray units, the Center of Dental Medicine in Zurich has also chosen in favor of solutions from Dentsply Sirona.

Delta Dental of Tennessee Launches New Initiative to Encourage Students to Drink More Water

Posted on February 27, 2020

Delta Dental of Tennessee Launches New Initiative to Encourage Students to Drink More Water

To commemorate its 55th anniversary, Delta Dental of Tennessee (Delta Dental) today announced a new grant program to replace existing water fountains at 55 elementary schools across the state with Elkay bottle-filling stations.

Providing access to drinking water throughout the school day gives students a healthy alternative to sugary beverages like soda and sports or juice drinks. Drinking plenty of water can help combat obesity, increase energy levels and may improve students’ cognitive functions. Further, if fluoridated, drinking water also plays an important role in preventing cavities.

"Our mission at Delta Dental is very simple: ensuring healthy smiles. And that starts with educating children about the importance of taking care of their teeth at a young age," said Dr. Phil Wenk, CEO and president of Delta Dental of Tennessee. "Drinking more water, especially fluoridated water, is good for your teeth and good for your overall health, and using a refillable water bottle is good for the environment. I am excited to celebrate our 55th anniversary by sharing this important message with students across Tennessee over the coming months."

All Tennessee elementary schools are encouraged to apply ahead of the April 17 deadline. To apply, interested schools should:

     • Visit https://tennessee.deltadental.com/wcs for more information and to complete the online application.

     • Create a short video highlighting how water is good for your health and teeth, why your school needs the bottle filling station, or what makes a healthy smile.

     • Share that video on social media with the hashtag #WatersCoolTN and include a link with their grant application.

     • Include photographs of the current water fountain that the school would like to replace, which will help inform the installation process for selected schools.

The 55 selected schools will receive a water bottle filling station, including installation, and toothbrushes for all students. Ten schools will also win a pep rally with Delta Dental’s Ambassador of Smiles, Marshall Molar, and water bottles for every student and staff member.

Grant announcements will be made during National Drinking Water Week (May 3-9, 2020). The water bottle filling stations will be installed over summer break at all 55 winning schools, and the pep rallies at the 10 selected schools will be scheduled for when school resumes in fall 2020.

"Water’s Cool @ School" grant applications are open through April 17 at https://tennessee.deltadental.com/wcs.
