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.

I hope you like it!!

2014 in review

December 31, 2014

The stats helper monkeys prepared a 2014 annual report for this blog.

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.

Eastman Dental Clinic in London.

Eastman Dental Clinic in London.

Eastman Institute for Oral Health, earlier known as the Rochester Dental Dispensary, was the first dental clinic to be funded by Mr. George Eastman. However, Mr. Eastman was so pleased with the Dispensary’s work that he helped fund five other clinics in Europe in the cities of London, Rome, Brussels, Stockholm and Paris, to provide dental care for children. From 1929 to 1937, Dr. Burkhart, the Dispensary’s director, represented Mr. Eastman in official visits to establish the clinics and was present at each dedication. Many of these clinics, which were the first of their kind, are still active today.

Eastmaninstitutet, which was dedicated in 1936, is located in Vasastaden, Stockholm, Sweden. Like the Rochester dispensary, the Institutet had a dental hygiene school.

The London Institute, now University College London (UCL) Eastman Dental Institute, is now the largest postgraduate dental academic centre in Europe, and known for dental education, research, and clinical care. You can read more about The Eastman’s history in this 2007 British Dental Journal article

Here’s a 1923 announcement in San Jose News about the Rome clinic, courtesy of Google. Premier Benito Mussolini was present at the dedication in 1933. The Eastman Dental Hospital of Rome is currently the largest dental center in Italy.

The Brussels clinic stopped treating patients in the ’80’s, and is in the process of becoming a museum for European history.

Below are a few photographs of the Paris clinic. Want to know more? Visit our online exhibit on Eastman’s European Dental Clinics Print materials are preserved in EIOH’s Bibby Archives.

Several children read while sitting in the children’s waiting room at l’Institut George Eastman in Paris, France. The large boxlike structure in the background is a birdcage, or “atrium.” Atriums were a prominent feature in all of the children’s waiting rooms at the Eastman dental clinics.
