The FCC issued an advisory Tuesday that warns companies not to block personal Wi-Fi devices.
…In response to the public outcry, Marriott had already sought to clarify what it was asking for.
“Marriott International listens to its customers, and we will not block guests from using their personal Wi-Fi devices at any of our managed hotels,”
via FCC prohibits hotels from blocking guests’ Wi-Fi.
I find it amazing that WiFi is free at a mid level hotel like Hampton Inn and you have to pay at an upscale Marriott.
Do not put the tower on the floor, it is likely to be damaged from cleaning activities; it could easily get wet from spills or mopping and it will pick up lots of dirt and dust. It needs to be close to a power supply and allow access in and out for various cables. For example if you position under the chair you will need to run monitor cables and USB inputs under the floor to the tower.

Digital Radiography is no longer new; it has been on the market for close to thirty years. If you are not using it you probably have a convincing personal excuse. On the other hand you could compare film x-ray users to a dentist still using a belt driven handpiece in 1995, thirty years after the air turbine was invented.
There is no longer any excuse. Make 2015 the year you lower your patient’s exposure to radiation, improve diagnostic efficiency and reduce the cost of taking radiographs. If you are still wondering what to get and are concerned about costs check out my comprehensive technology guide, “Digital Radiography”
The “Digital Radiography” guide exposes nine myths about digital radiography and it will answer the basic question…Why bother? It then provides step by step help choosing and then setting up digital x-rays.
You will learn about; the five part imaging chain, the sensor wars, image enhancement and much more. And what will come as a complete shock to most dentists… there is even a budget and financial analysis that shows how digital radiography is actually cheaper than film.
“Digital Radiography” will answer all your questions, provide a plan and show you how to save money… all delivered in a fun and easy to understand style.
Having a full set of patient images is a huge benefit for treatment planning, actual patient treatment, continuing care and dental-legal documentation. With film, taking processing and storing images was such a time consuming expensive and tedious task we never did it. With digital photography it is fast inexpensive and easy. Every dentist should have a set of photographic images of every patient just as we have a set of x-rays. The only reason we don’t is a relic from our pre-digital past.
More wisdom from Seth Godin:
It’s quite natural to be defensive in the face of criticism. After all, the critic is often someone with an agenda that’s different from yours.
But advice, solicited advice from a well-meaning and insightful expert? If you confuse that with criticism, you’ll leave a lot of wisdom on the table.

“Out of the Mouth a Babe” Hmmm interesting?
Dental art is anything that depicts teeth or dentistry in an interesting or artistic way. If you have any suggestions for future Dental Art pieces please send them to me or give me a link. Thanks.
