He seemed like a natural on stage and loved the part. We expect Hollywood to be calling for him soon!

Dental implants are becoming more commonplace in prosthodontic treatment. In fact, the American Academy of Implant Dentistry reports that 3 million people in the United States have dental implants, and that number is growing by 500,000 each year. Also, these implants have a 98% success rate. And since these procedures are surgical in nature, infection is a key concern, prompting many dentists to include antibiotics as part of the treatment.
But antimicrobial resistance also is a potential danger. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) notes that at least 23,000 people in the United States die each year due to bacteria that are resistant to antibiotics. A team of Australian researchers, then, set out to see if there is any consensus for antibiotic prescriptions for healthy patients undergoing implant placement, finding that such usage does not improve clinical outcomes.
In their study, “Is There a Consensus on Antibiotic Usage for Dental Implant Placement in Healthy Patients?” published by the Australian Dental Journal, these researchers concluded that implant practitioners should apply principles of antimicrobial stewardship and not use antibiotics as a routine measure in healthy patients. Alex (Joon Soo) Park, BPharm, one of the researchers and a student at the University of Western Australia School of Dentistry, recently shared their insights with Dentistry Today.

We recently celebrate 10-year anniversaries of our employees Kathy, Sherry, and Alyssa 1 at Tutto Fresco Restaurant.
While we were at the restaurant, Danielle and Alyssa 2 created a catchy Wahl Family Dentistry jingle. Maybe Danielle’s next destination is Madison Avenue!

When Dr Mike arrived at his office on the morning of April 1, 2017, he was shocked.
Apparently, a band of marauding dental staff members, led by Robin had foiled him!

Kira is a freshman at Delaware Military Academy and for her English class was assigned to write an essay about her favorite teacher. Kira’s favorite teacher was her middle school (Brandywine Springs School) Spanish teacher, Mrs. Beverly Igo. Kira wrote a beautiful essay and all the students had to submit their essays to TeenInk.com. Kira’s essay was chosen #1 for January 7, 2017 and was featured on the front page of the Nonfiction/Educator of the Year section of TeenInk.com for the entire day. Since Kira almost never checks her email, she did not find out about this until March 2017, and apparently it’s not on the website anymore, but we are very proud of Kira, and we are thankful that Kira has had so many wonderful, dedicated teachers at Brandywine Springs and Delaware Military Academy, including her favorite Mrs. Igo.
