Leaders Or Managers: Who Will Define A New Vision For Dental Education?, Fred Certosimo 2010 Virginia Commonwealth University

Leaders Or Managers: Who Will Define A New Vision For Dental Education?, Fred Certosimo

General Practice Publications

Leaders and managers are vital to any organization; however, each possesses intrinsic characteristics ideally suited to produce entirely different outcomes. Modern dental education finds itself in a predicament as it assesses new ways to meet the ever-changing demands of its profession and the superimposed mega-issues and global concerns of the new millennium—all competing in an organization and curriculum imprisoned in the first two-thirds of the twentieth century. The purpose of this article is to highlight the role of leadership in dentistry and more specifically dental education. It compares and contrasts characteristics commonly found in leaders who seek long-term, outward-looking ...

Philips Institute for Oral Health Research Publications

Background

Available bacterial genomes provide opportunities for screening vaccines by reverse vaccinology. Efficient identification of surface antigens is required to reduce time and animal cost in this technology. We developed an approach to identify surface antigens rapidly inStreptococcus sanguinis, a common infective endocarditis causative species.

Methods and Findings

We applied bioinformatics for antigen prediction and pooled antigens for immunization. Forty-seven surface-exposed proteins including 28 lipoproteins and 19 cell wall-anchored proteins were chosen based on computer algorithms and comparative genomic analyses. Eight proteins among these candidates and 2 other proteins were pooled together to immunize rabbits. The antiserum reacted strongly ...


Assessing Student Perception Of Conducting Cumulative Final Examinations In An Eight-Hour Format Comparable To The National Board, Gail Aamodt, Kelli Shaffer 2010 Pacific University

Assessing Student Perception Of Conducting Cumulative Final Examinations In An Eight-Hour Format Comparable To The National Board, Gail Aamodt, Kelli Shaffer

Faculty Scholarship (DHS)

The National Board Dental Hygiene Examination is often approached with concern and anxiety, especially for ESL students or those students with test taking anxiety. Many programs offer or recommend students participate in board preparation courses to help students review and ultimately succeed in this examination process. At Pacific University, an alternative testing procedure was created to help students integrate knowledge from multiple courses, reduce test taking anxiety and enhance success on the NBDHE.

Polishing Esthetic Restorative Materiai, Caren M. Barnes 2010 University of Nebraska Medical Center

Polishing Esthetic Restorative Materiai, Caren M. Barnes

Faculty Publications, College of Dentistry

When esthetic dental restorations are encountered during charting, they should be included in the treatment plan for the specific polishing procedures that are required. If the brand and type of esthetic restoration are known through the patient chart, the polishing procedures and products used should be those recommended by the manufacturer. If not possible, alternative polishing procedures should be used. A cleaning agent containing feldspar and rubber polishing cup can be used on all esthetic restorative materials with no chance of damage to the surface characterization.

The principles for polishing esthetic restorations are the same as for natural teeth. If ...

Nanotechnology In Dental Sciences: Moving Towards A Finer Way Of Doing Dentistry, Vuk Uskoković, Luiz Eduardo Bertassoni

Pharmacy Faculty Articles and Research

Nanotechnologies are predicted to revolutionize: (a) the control over materials properties at ultrafine scales; and (b) the sensitivity of tools and devices applied in various scientific and technological fields. In this short review, we argue that dentistry will be no exception to this trend. Here, we present a dynamic view of dental tissues, an adoption of which may lead to finer, more effective and minimally invasive reparation approaches. By doing so, we aim at providing insights into some of the breakthroughs relevant to understanding the genesis of dental tissues at the nanostructural level or generating dental materials with nanoscale critical ...


Prospects And Pits On The Path Of Biomimetics: The Case Of Tooth Enamel, Vuk Uskoković 2010 Chapman University

Prospects And Pits On The Path Of Biomimetics: The Case Of Tooth Enamel, Vuk Uskoković

Pharmacy Faculty Articles and Research

This review presents a discourse on challenges in understanding and imitating the process of amelogenesis in vitro on the molecular scale. In light of the analysis of imitation of the growth of dental enamel, it also impends on the prospects and potential drawbacks of the biomimetic approach in general. As the formation of enamel proceeds with the protein matrix guiding the crystal growth, while at the same time conducting its own degradation and removal, it is argued that three aspects of amelogenesis need to be induced in parallel: a) crystal growth; b) protein assembly; c) proteolytic degradation. A particular emphasis ...
