Providing dental care to seniors often comes with challenges, according to a story in the Washington Post. The ADA reports that a fifth of people age 75 and older haven’t seen a dentist in the past five years. Dugoni School faculty members Dr. Elisa Chavez Luna and Dr. Paul Subar share how Pacific is involved in geriatric care – from educating dental students on rotation to treating patients in our clinics.

Good news! Dental schools are attracting increasing numbers of women and minorities. Why? Dr. Ruchi Sahota, Pacific Dugoni alum and ADA spokesperson, points to the flexibility of the profession: “As a woman, it is empowering to be able to have a profession where I can set my own hours, whether or not I was a mother." http://ow.ly/QbOn4

What’s so special about teeth found in the Roman Forum dating back to the first century AD? “The real reason these teeth are so interesting, though, is that they are the first clear evidence for the practice of dental extractions – and very skilled extractions at that – in the ancient world and that they come from the Roman Forum itself.” http://ow.ly/PovcO

Researchers are working on a smart mouthguard to help dentists diagnose and treat bruxism. “Equipped with sensors, the mouthguard detects how much force is being applied on it by the teeth as well as which teeth are doing the grinding. The information can then be sent to a dentist via a mobile device.” What do you think about this new technology? http://ow.ly/PlcpL
