Rogers Dentist No Longer Gnashing Teeth Over Bankruptcy Case
A Rogers dentist’s plan to sell his practice backfired earlier this year, resulting in a trip to bankruptcy court. L.B. Stringfellow was in talks to sell his office to “a big corporation,” according to Stringfellow’s bankruptcy attorney, Carl Hopkins of the firm Hopkins & Holmes PLLC of Van Buren. Hopkins said he didn’t know the name of the firm, but the agreement was “soft.” As a result of the sale talks, Stringfellow’s employees bailed, and “that just left the business reeling,” Hopkins said.

A View From the Losing Side of Health Care
For the last three hours I've been crunching numbers, trying to figure out how not to pay $600 to $800 a month for a health insurance policy that won't cover any medical expenses until I've paid anywhere from $7000 to $9000 in deductibles. Then, even if the deductible is met, I'd only get partial benefits until I pay an out of pocket maximum ranging from $11,000 to $14,000. I'd reach these totals only from a catastrophic health event - a hospitalization, emergency room visit, or devastating diagnosis. I finally conclude that I have no choice. I'll be paying for the promise of a service that I'm not likely to use in 2016. ...

Fillings can 'do more harm than good', researchers warn
ConclusionThis longitudinal study aimed to assess risk factors for decay in teeth next to newly-placed fillings. The study found that around 60% of people experienced decay of the enamel or dentine in previously healthy neighbouring teeth. In teeth with existing decay of the enamel at the start of the study, more than 40% progressed into the dentine. The researchers found that both patient and dentist-related factors were associated with the risk of the progression of decay. This study has a good sample size, but because of its design, it is unable to prove causation. Though the study found patient factors and the treating...

What is a Tonsillolith?
This study evaluated panoramic radiographs versus computer tomography (CT) for tonsillolith detection. CT identified tonsilloliths more often, 46.1%, vs 7.6% for radiographs, CT also identified many tonsilloliths that were of smaller sizes (59 of then were < 2 mm in size). Radiographs detected no tonsilloliths that were < 2 mm and most were 3-5 mm in size. If dental imaging is performed for children, panoramic radiographs are used more often and therefore may not detect the tonsilloliths at all, and/or the tonsilloliths in children may be smaller and therefore not identified. Learning Point A tonsillolith is a living...
