The History of the Tooth Fairy

The History of the Tooth Fairy

Like America’s other two famous folklore figures – Santa Claus and the Easter Bunny – the tooth fairy slips in and out of houses in the middle of the night to deliver gifts or money to sleeping children.

Common Tongue Problems

We roll it, wiggle it, and wag it – without it, we can’t speak, chew, swallow, taste, whistle, lick, slurp, and laugh. Your tongue is a mobile, dexterous group of muscles that affects every movement in and out of your mouth. Its surface is covered with small, fleshy protuberances called papilla, which contain most of […]

How Sugar Causes Cavities

It’s the matter-of-fact phrase used by moms worldwide, after you’ve been caught rummaging through the candy dish before dinner: sugar will rot your teeth out. But is this just a suburban myth or does mom know best – will eating sugar cause cavities? The truthful answer is yes and no: sugar does play a role […]

Women in Dentistry

By the year 2020 women are poised to become the predominant faces in dentistry. [1] Today, female dentists make up nearly half of the field and that percentage is expected to increase in the upcoming years – as of 2013, 60% of young practicing dentists under the age of 44 were women. [1] And if […]
