Edward F. Rossomando University of Connecticut School of Dental Medicine, Farmington, Connecticut, USA Abstract After W.D. Miller proved a causal relationship between microbes and dental caries and periodontitis, the repair and replacement of damaged or lost teeth resulting from microbial activity dominated 20th century dental practice. In this study, I predict that in the 21st century dental practice will shift to the treatment of those dental diseases not caused by microbes. As dentists already treat some nonmicrobial diseases, I will focus on craniofacial malformations, the group of nonmicrobial diseases usually called birth defects. Some examples include dental dysplasias, cleft lip and [...]

1 INTRODUCTION It would be difficult to identify a report that has been as influential in guiding 21st century dental practice as the Gies report published in 1926.1 While his conclusions are well known, what was always of interest to me was what he was thinking and who was he consulting with as he prepared his report. Recently, I uncovered a correspondence between Gies and Dr. Simon Flexner, Director of the Rockefeller University in New York. A comparison of this correspondence with the contents of his final report suggested to me that Dr. Flexner's response altered his thinking and could have [...]
Augmented Intelligence: The Future of Dentistry With the increasing pace of technological advances, one group has made its mission to help build a collaboration between industry and schools to introduce dental students to the latest innovations that can ultimately help their patients. “We want to show the students something about the dental profession that they probably wouldn’t see because of the economic constraints on a dental school,” said Edward Rossomando, D.D.S., Ph.D., president of the Center for Research & Education in Technology, or CRET.

Editorial: Dental Hypotheses: Has Do-It-Yourself Alignment for Malocclusion Doomed the Orthodontic Specialty?admin2022-01-08T15:45:37-05:00
[Downloaded free from http://www.dentalhypotheses.com on Friday, January 1, 2021, IP: 241.187.251.232] Has Do-It-Yourself Alignment for Malocclusion Doomed the Orthodontic Specialty? TECHNOLOGY AND DO-IT-YOURSELF ORTHODONTICS IN THE 21ST CENTURY Orthodontics is the dental specialty that diagnoses and corrects malocclusion of teeth during and after eruption. Treatment involves the use of forces on teeth to shift their position. Traditionally the magnitude and direction of these forces are determined by the orthodontist and appliances fabricated for the application of these forces. Several years ago, digital technology was developed specifically for orthodontic treatment. By using computer guided design and manufacturing, appliances were fabricated that [...]
