ADA Testifies on Priorities for Oral Disease Prevention Funding

Washington, D.C., May 3, 2011—"We cannot 'drill and fill' our way out of dental disease," said Dr. Matthew Neary, chairman of the American Dental Association's (ADA) Council on Government Affairs, speaking before members of the House of Representatives today. "But we can prevent it—which is a more cost-efficient and a better way of reducing oral disease."

Dr. Neary told lawmakers that the Indian Health Service's Early Childhood Caries Initiative, a program designed to determine the level of disease as well as the best prevention methods, must receive adequate funding if it is to continue its valuable work. Dr. Neary asked that Congress accept the Administration's request to increase the program's funding by $726,000.

DENTSPLY MAILLEFER Press Conference: One File is Enough

After the International Dental Show 2011 endodontics is no longer what it used to be

Cologne, Germany/Ballaigues, Switzerland May 4th, 2011 — One single file per root canal preparation – that sounds like a new era in endodontics. How this will turn out in daily practice was explained at the DENTSPLY MAILLEFER press conference during the International Dental Show on March 25th, 2011 given by the CEO of the company Pierre-Luc Maillefer, marketing manager Didier Lakomsky and Dr. Uwe Radmacher, an endodontist from Lampertheim, Germany. The event was entitled: „New pathways for endodontic treatment and for improving success rates“.

Pierre-Luc Maillefer opened the event with a brief historical overview of the roots of the company, which has been part of the DENTSPLY group of companies for more than 15 years. It was founded back in 1889 by his ancestor Auguste Maillefer. Originally a master watchmaker, a typical trade for the Jura region of Switzerland, at the age of 40 he decided on a second career and became a dentist. Since then his company, based in Ballaigues, Switzerland, combines the meticulousness of the traditional precision engineering workshops with dental innovation.
