The evolving demographics and economics of dental practice require consideration as the profession plans forfuture changes in the dental workforce, the makeup of the population and ongoing access to care crisis. This paper is a sampling of U.S. Census Bureau reports on demographics and an appraisal of JADA and ADA News statements regarding the economics of dental practice, as well as a review of historical developments of the profession's perceptions of dental education and government support for dental care...

Jack M Saroyan
After 70 years of community water fluoridation in the United States, still over 100 million people do not have the benefits of dietary fluoride. The saturation level may have been reached. Salt fluoridation can be an adjunct method for improving children's dental health in noncommunity water fluoridation areas. It is used worldwide and the World Health Organization recommends it when water fluoridation is not feasible as it is equally effective in the prevention and control of dental caries. The author calls for a debate on this proposal by organized dentistry...

This investigation describes the factors associated with patients' initial decisions to seek dental care, including the corresponding number of visits and the types of services received during a dental visit episode. Data came from the nationally representative Medical Expenditure Panel Survey (MEPS). Episode-specific dental visits were further classified into three categories, based on type of services received: preventive, treatment-based, or a combination. Among individuals with a visit episode, 78% of the episodes consisted of a single visit...

Dentists justifiably bridle at having to compromise what they believe, based on evidence, is in the patients' best interests based on reimbursement rules of benefits providers. Benefits providers justifiably bridle at having to pay for services not contracted by those who purchase insurance. A particular case involving performing multiple quadrants of root planing at a single appointment is used as an example of this tension. One alternative is for the profession and the industry to seek to negotiate a win-win joint position...

This case study examines changes taking place in the Oregon dental care system. Data were obtained from interviews with senior executives from several delivery organizations.

Paul Glassman
Disruptive innovation is a process whereby companies or industries that have succeeded in the past by producing ever more sophisticated and expensive products and services end up losing their customer base because eventually others enter to serve a market more in line with true consumer needs. The U.S. oral health system has followed this path and is now perfectly positioned for disruptive innovation. Among the innovations that are already disrupting the industry and will increasingly do so are consolidation of dental practices, bringing care to where people are through telehealth- health connected teams and Virtual Dental Homes, and payment systems that provide incentives for lowering costs and improving the health of the population...

The literature is equivocal: dentists are either as susceptible to substance abuse or somewhat more susceptible than the general public. Most of us have suspected at one time that a colleague was troubled by excessive alcohol consumption or prescription pain medications. We often sit on the sidelines, waiting for an ideal opportunity to help, wary about offering unsolicited advice or invading the privacy of a colleague. When the problem is confronted and intervention begins, we hold our breath, yearning for a healthy outcome but dreading the worst...

This presentation is an interim report on the American College of Dentists Gies Ethics Project. Following the example of William Gies, our work has been grounded in empirical studies, with progress on the first 11 projects summarized here. The following general patterns are beginning to emerge: (a) the traditional model of individual dentists guided by abstract principles seems to exhibit some inadequacies; (b) ethical cases suggest that patients and dentists hold common views or what should be done and why in some areas but they diverge in others; (c) dentists place high value on technical excellence and income and relatively less on ethics and oral health outcomes; (d) ethics education in dental schools has not achieved the status of a discipline and is showing signs of receiving less attention than in recent years; (e) focus groups of both patients and dentists are concerned that private standards that differ across dentists as to what constitutes appropriate care are eroding trust in the profession, both among dentists and between dentists and patients; (f) recent economic trends highlight growing fragmentation within the profession; (g) practice is losing its direct relationship with patients as it becomes more commercial; (h) dentists are confused about their role in self-regulation and thus compromising public trust; (i) dentists seem to be willing to tolerate a significant number of their colleagues cutting corners; (j) educating individual dentists about ethical theory is unlikely to be effective in bringing about needed professional behavior...

David W Chambers
James Rest proposed a model of moral behavior with four components: sensitivity, reasoning, character, and courage (or action). Research has shown that moral character is a complex construct. Multiple moral self-concepts exist within each individual, and different context predispose various of these to become dominant in different settings. Moral priming is the practice of manipulating the environment to favor the use of appropriate moral self-concepts. A study is reported, demonstrating that dentists can be primed to express more moral views based entirely on context...

The major shift in dental education in the past couple of decades has been away from process-clock-hours and number of clinical procedures-to outcomes. In order to be accredited today, schools must document that their graduates have the skills, knowledge, 8nd values required to begin independent dental practice. There has been a corresponding change in assessment methods. Graduates must demonstrate independent competency in all aspects of dental practice, and schools must provide evidence that their programs function as claimed...
