Guest post on "The phone microbiome" from Georgia Barguil in Jack Gilbert's lab
In conclusion, there were more biological differences between shoes and phones than between the three geographical locations. Phones and shoes harbored microbiomes representing the environments they most often came into contact with. Phones were closely related to the skin and upper respiratory tract, and shoes reflected the bacteria found in soil and the environment. Although many of the groups found both in shoes and phones have pathogenic representatives, you should not be scared, as it does not mean that you are going to get sick. Most of the isolated, characterized and sequenced bacterial groups available in the sequ...

Who needs a waiting room?
Passing through Jacksonville, FL, I took the opportunity to catch up with "the Lean dentist," Sami Bahri, about whom I have written before.  Walking into his office, I was struck by this view of his waiting room.  This is a more or less typical situation.  Patients entering the clinic are immediately escorted into a treatment room.  Organizing a clinic's work flow to produce an efficient treatment of patient flows is a direct result of Lean process improvements.  I joked with Sami that he should find some other use for this space, like starting a book store or something!One of the things I like abo...

Vitamin D Linked To A 50 Percent Reduction In The Incidence Of Dental Caries
A new review of existing studies points toward a potential role for vitamin D in helping to prevent dental caries, or tooth decay. The review, published in the December issue of Nutrition Reviews, encompassed 24 controlled clinical trials, spanning the 1920s to the 1980s, on approximately 3,000 children in several countries. These trials showed that vitamin D was associated with an approximately 50 percent reduction in the incidence of tooth decay. "My main goal was to summarize the clinical trial database so that we could take a fresh look at this vitamin D question," said Dr. Philippe Hujoel of the University of Washingt...

Coping, cooperating, and crankiness
I have had enough of serious blog posts on financial stuff and now am back to my normal (whatever that may be) level of zaniness in the crazy world of my health.Monday I had a regular six month check up with the dentist. Something I hate/fear/detest more than almost anything - its right up there with those little medical adventures that might make me feel a 'twinge'. At the appointment, it was decided that I need two bonds which are relatively painless and quick and could help prevent future issues. I am all about my long term health (or what is left of it) so opted to have them. It was also pointed out that I have two old...

Rembrandt Stain Dissolving Strips: In the Beauty Brains Bathroom
This week I’ve been using Rembrandt’s Intense Stain stain dissolving strips. I’ve always been intrigued by the way companies have incorporated hydrogen peroxide (the same tooth whitening ingredient that dentists use) into home use products. The trick, of course, is how to keep the peroxide in contact with your teeth while it does it’s job. On one hand there are gels that are held against your teeth with plastic inserts. On the other hand there are removable plastic strips that you wear for 30 minutes or so. Rembrandt has a unique approach with these strips that dissolve in your mouth after 5 to 10 m...

Point 4 and Prodigy to be discountinued
From Kerr,You have been a loyal user of Point 4 and/or Prodigy, and your works have undoubtedly shown the quality and longevity of these two Kerr composites. In 2009, Kerr introduced Herculite Ultra, a nanohybrid composite that combines the clinical legacy of Herculite with advanced science for a very strong yet esthetic and easy-to-use composite. Because Kerr now has a composite that rivals and even surpasses Point 4 and Prodigy in handling, strength, and esthetics, we believe it is time to transition users of Point 4 and Prodigy to a better and more advanced product that is Herculite Ultra. If you have yet to try Herculi...

D-Blog Day: Our Offer Is Still Open!!
My friend Gina Capone (who's now a mother ..  many congratulations to Gina and her husband!!) started this quite a few years ago, and we're fortunate that it endures even today.  It's D-Blog Day.  The 2012 theme is confronting the mainstream media; we're encouraged to write an open letter to any print, broadcast or online media outlet about handling diabetes — why it's important for them to cover it, what have they gotten right or wrong, and what the reporters and editors need to know when relating diabetes topics to the general public. The link to all of the D-Blog Day posts can be found at: http://d...
