Hart M. Dixon Jr., an accomplished dentist, died peacefully with his family by his side on Wednesday, March 14, 2018. He was 89.

Born in Columbia, S.C., Dixon knew at a young age that he wanted to become a dentist. His late parents, Mary and Hart, and other siblings worked hard to send the youngest of 13 children to Howard University in 1945. He was only 16 years old at the time, yet graduated four years later in the top percentile. It was at Howard where he met his wife, Harriette Davis.

After undergrad school, Dixon served as a corporal in the U.S. Army. Afterwards, he was accepted to Howard’s dental school and later interned at Harlem Hospital in New York City. It was at Harlem Hospital that Dixon honed his skills.

There was a large “village” of family and friends who influenced him in his early years and helped build his strong commitment and motivation to work hard and to unselfishly help others.

His loving parents, siblings and host of family and friends were beside him at all times, offering advice and support as he grew into a distinguished pillar of the community and an admired mentor to others.

If you thought your trips to the dentist were unbearable, just be glad you aren't this 538-pound grizzly.
An eight-person team of veterinarians knocked out Albert the Grizzly last week to give him a root canal and extract one of his teeth.
The veterinarians also ventured into the mouth of his buddy, Hank the Tiger, who had five root canals, which took more than three hours to complete. Both the creatures are from Lions, Tigers & Bears, a wildlife Sanctuary in Alpine, California.
The dental work on Hank took longer than expected and the team wasn't able to perform scheduled dental procedures on bobcats Mia and Clarence or Cassara the Leopard, according to a Facebook post from the sanctuary. Both Hank and Albert are in "excellent" health following their surgeries, the sanctuary wrote in the post.

The world’s first hands-free toothbrush that takes just 10 seconds to clean teeth could save people hours in the bathroom every year, its inventor claims.

Given that we spend a mammoth 108 days of our life brushing our teeth, the Amabrush promises to take all the hassle out of scrubbing, rinsing and flossing.

All you need to do is press a single button, wait ten seconds and you’ll have perfectly clean teeth, the creators say.

Get rid off halitosis (unpleasant smell):


There are many methods and varied protocols for examining halitosis. Chemical and enzymatic tests determine the presence of bacterial species and their metabolic products or enzymes in the mouth, while halitometers precisely quantify gases but not halitosis itself. Examinations by the human nose (ie, self assessment, feedback from others, or organoleptic test by an examiner) directly target halitosis, however organoleptic examination alone is insufficient for a definitive diagnosis when the individual has no complaints about halitosis. The underlying reasons why patients seek consultation concerning halitosis are usually based on their own assessment and the opinion of others, even if those assessments are not correlated with oral odorous gas measurements.

Prevent Dental Emergencies:

We all know a few fixes and have some remedies in handy for when we are faced with a toothache but most people rarely think about how to prevent them. The best approach for dental issues is to take all the necessary steps for staying healthy. The biggest mistake most of us make is thinking that we only need to pay attention to our teeth when they hurt. Just brushing them once a day might not be enough to keep your teeth and gums healthy.
