News Bulletin : ADA News Bulletin June 2011
8 JUNE 20 11 DENTAL FEES SURVEY ONLINE FOR 2011 ADA AND THE WRIGLEY COMPANY SHOW COMMITMENT TO NURTURING NEXT GENERATION OF DENTISTS For the first time this year the annual Dental Fees Survey will go online to our members in private practices. The survey will request the usual fees charged for selected items in Australian private practices at 1 July 2011. The online survey will be sent out in mid-July by ACA Research to all general practitioners and specialists in each state with email addresses. Please return this important survey. Some members have arranged to provide their fees directly to the ADA by De-Identified Data Capture (DeIDC) through their practice software. A maximum response to this important survey will assist the Association to represent the interests of members with the solid backing of current, reliable and representative quality data. Peter Barnard In addition to the Grants announced earlier (News Bulletin, May 2011, No 398), The Wrigley Company is showing its commitment to nurturing and fostering the development of Australia's next generation of dentists with another grant, The Wrigley Company Foundation ADA Study Grant for Dental Students from Rural and Remote Regions. This study grant joins the ADA's existing grants program for dental students, but is available specifically to dental students from rural or remote areas that are studying in a regional educational institution, recognising the additional challenges they face in having to study away from home. The Wrigley Company Foundation ADA Study Grant for Dental Students from Rural and Remote Regions will award one USD$5,000 grant to an enrolled dental student who is an ADA member and is a resident of a rural or remote area of Australia. Judging for this study grant will be conducted by the Grant Review Panel, comprised of four ADA members and one Wrigley representative. The successful applicant will be announced during the ADA's Dental Health Week (1 -- 7 August 2011).

CHRONIC PAIN -- TIME FOR A REVIEW? As Brett Taylor says in this interview with Dr Barry Sessle, dentists are great at acute pain, not so good with the other kind. Learn how men are different from women and how we can un-learn to be in pain by using our plastic brains. IMPLANTS ARE JUST LIKE TEETH, ONLY BETTER -- RIGHT? Dr Stephen Cottrell points out that teeth are not just space maintainers for implants and discusses how to maintain implant peri-gingival health in this interview with Dr Mark Bowman. CAN'T PLACE IMPLANTS AFTER BISPHOSPHONATE THERAPY? Dr Sree Koka says think again as he mines years of dental and medical patient data at the world-renowned Mayo Clinic and comes up with some surprising findings that link standing teeth numbers and hip fractures. In this two-part interview with Patrick Meaney, he explains other links about risks of implant placement in patients taking bisphosphonates and what to do if you have to remove teeth in these patients. A METH-MOUTH PRIMER Dr Pat Sammon discusses this very difficult and disturbing modern phenomenon, that may be coming to a surgery near you soon. Michael Vandiver finds out how to manage these challenging clinical situations. BONUS VIDEO Dr Sue-Ching Yeoh, Oral Medicine Registrar at Westmead Hospital, provides a comprehensive review of oral medicine for the general practitioner. Patrick J Meaney
