Who is behind the research? Who has control? These are questions to consider.

What is a doctor? Is there a sacred trust? What makes it important? We’re not just supposed to make our money and leave. There is a higher purpose. Let me explain.
Here's how to upgrade YOUR dental practice.
Today, I talk about passion in providing orthodontic care, how it transforms a doctor’s life as it transforms children' lives, and why finishing and detailing in ortho is an ubiquitous challenge. This is the video addition to my article in the latest issue of the Journal of the American Orthodontic Society.
If you are a doctor who loves treating children, you may find incredible joy and transformation of YOU, as well as of patients, in treating without sedation or O.R. THEN, the child AND parent can become greater, more capable, more appreciative and healthier.
While you can't be perfect, you CAN be excellent!
Here are some pointers on how to do that.
Today I discuss how to determine the needs, if present, in the growing child in primary and/or mixed/transitional dentition. How to examine? Is there a need? And, if so, how to diagnose and plan which therapies would be best for the child.
Often, I get questions from parents - including other dentists - about developmental challenges with their own children. This particular question from a dentist-DAD, about a 3-year-old mouth-breathing child, deals with a frequently-encountered developmental problem in small children.
