Carestream Dental Introduces Digital Dentistry Difference Education Campaign

Initiative will transform public understanding and conversation about dental tech; updated Carestream Dental branding reinforces digital focusCHICAGO—Carestream Dental, an industry-leading provider of integrated digital dental solutions, introduced its Digital Dentistry Difference public education campaign today at the Chicago Dental Society Midwinter Meeting. Through this campaign, the company will directly educate consumers about the benefits of digital dentistry and will arm doctors with resources to prompt conversation with their patients, solving a significant awareness gap that research suggests is harming patient perception of doctors and the oral healthcare industry overall. According to the first Global Digital Dentistry survey —commissioned by Carestream Dental in November 2019 to measure public attitudes, perceptions and behaviors related to dental technology—patients across the globe believe that the oral healthcare industry lags behind both optical and orthopedic in terms of the technology used. Even more surprising, less than half of patients even believe their doctor uses very advanced technology.“It is a missed opportunity when you consider that doctors are investing in digital dentistry to improve patient care, yet many patients do not understand the level of advanced digital technology the industry offers, or how it can change their lives,” Ed Shellard, D.M.D., chief dental officer, C arestream Dental. &ldquo...

Disrupted sleep and circadian rhythms are linked with substance abuse risk. Human studies that investigate relationships between sleep, circadian rhythm, and substance use reward generally rely on indirect means to infer dopaminergic function, such as functional magnetic resonance imaging. In this issue of the JCI, Zhang and colleagues used positron emission tomography (PET) to image striatal dopamine D1 (D1R) and D2/3 receptor (D/3R) availability in healthy adults. The authors assessed rest-activity rhythms, then conducted PET scans using radioligand antagonists selective for D1 receptors or D2/D3 receptors to measure D1R...

CONCLUSION: The high proportion of children requiring restorative treatment and late age at first dental screening show needed investments in educating general dentists, medical students, and pediatricians about oral health guidelines for pediatric patients.PRACTICAL IMPLICATIONS: Communicating the importance of children establishing a dental home by age 1 year to parents and health care professionals may help reduce disease burden in children younger than 6 years.PMID:34521538 | DOI:10.1016/j.adaj.2021.05.020

We compared two quantitative evaluation methods.METHODS: Interim scans from 43 patients with anaplastic lymphoma kinase-negative PTCL from the 'Positron Emission Tomography-Guided Therapy of Aggressive Non-Hodgkin Lymphomas' trial were re-analyzed by qPET (relating residual lymphoma-related uptake to liver uptake) and ∆SUVmax (relating interim scan to baseline scan). The endpoint was progression-free survival.RESULTS: qPE...
