This is what we all strive to do. This is a column created to embody a hands-on approach toward user-friendly solutions for our lives.
Each month I discuss concepts relating to women dentists, their lives, and their work. I focus on alternative dental products, Web sites, books, concepts, and organizations that simplify our world.

Don’t miss one of the best patient-education tools. Using fluorescence, the DIAGNOdent peers into enamel to detect carious breakdown. When monitored early, caries may be introduced to therapeutic interventions. The louder the sound, the greater the risk of deep decay. DIAGNOdent is worth the investment because sometimes large areas of fluorescence do not appear on radiographs or are undetectable with an explorer. Visit www.kavo.com or call (800) 323-8029.
