New Display at Bibby Library: ADA Caries Classification System

March 31, 2015

After a long silence, the Bibby Library News & Tips Blog is active once again!

Today’s entry is a guest post from Neelam Jadeja, Dental Resident affiliated with the NYS Department of Oral Health and Bibby Library’s Student Employee.

She writes:

Dental caries, one of the most common oral diseases, has been classified by the dental profession with the older, more surgical classifications which do not include initial noncavitated lesions, such as white or brown spots.

As other therapeutic models have been developed and used to prevent, treat, and reverse caries, the American Dental Association (ADA) developed the Caries Classification System (CCS) to incorporate more interceptive nonsurgical efforts.

The new treatment planning module of the electronic dental record system, Axium, includes the ADA CCS to record caries diagnosis. Although it is intended to be an easy-to-implement system, the dental professionals find the new module to be very confusing, time consuming, repetitive, and so on.

Therefore, it is essential to understand the ADA CCS, because the activity level of the lesion over time is included with the other clinical characteristics such as lesion location, site of origin, and extent.

These variables are necessary to determine which clinical treatments and therapeutic interventions are appropriate to control and treat these lesions. Furthermore, this new classification provides essential features to assess caries risk, to trend progression or regression of caries, and to determine effectiveness of caries management strategies and preventive programs.

To learn more about the ADA CCS go to: http://www.urmc.edu/miner/mdl.aspx?U=http://dx.doi.org/10.1016/j.adaj.2014.11.018

You can also read the article in JADA at Bibby Library.

I hope you like it!!

Thanks,

Here’s an excerpt:

A New York City subway train holds 1,200 people. This blog was viewed about 7,300 times in 2014. If it were a NYC subway train, it would take about 6 trips to carry that many people.

January 29 is High Noon at Miner Library: Medicine in Movies & Television

January 23, 2014

 

Dr. Kildare. MASH. Scrubs. Grey’s Anatomy. One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest. Call the Midwife.

Medicine_Telelvision
These are just a few of the hit movies and TV shows that have captured the funny, dramatic, and mysterious sides of medicine.

Please join us at Miner Library on Wednesday, January 29 at HIGH NOON when librarians Linda Hasman and Valorie Hallinan will take you on a whirlwind tour of medical drama on the screen and how it has changed to reflect the times.

Sit back, relax (bring your lunch or popcorn if you’d like) and enjoy scenes from classic and ground-breaking drama, and some of the latest and greatest shows still in production. We’ll solve a few medical mysteries and watch a medical “blooper” or two, when the writers and directors obviously forgot to consult the experts.

Everyone is welcome to this free event. For more information, contact Linda Hasman at 275-3399 or Valorie Hallinan at 275-6873.
