“Number 14” Not sure what this is or who made it. It might even be a dental school tooth morphology project. Whatever, it is beautifully rendered and photographed.

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.

You’ve already done some online training in the Dentrix Resource Center. Why not take a few Dentrix Essentials tests and show your team what you can do with Dentrix?

When you pass a test, you’ll receive a certificate and some much deserved respect. The tests are short and you can take them anywhere you have a computer and Internet access. There’s no cost to you or your practice because Dentrix Essentials tests are included with your Dentrix Customer Service Plan.

Want to show what you know?

  1. Go to Dentrix.com/mastery and at the bottom of the page click Take a Test
  2. Log in with your practice’s Dentrix Customer ID and ZIP code.
  3. Create an account.
  4. Click the Take a Test tab.
  5. Select one of the Dentrix G7 Essentials tests.

Note: Make sure you start with the Dentrix Essentials tests. The Dentrix Mastery Tests are longer, more challenging, and they require an additional fee.

Hmmm. Most significant data breaches in medicine and dentistry are not individual dentists but medical and dental plans.

From Health IT Security:

Delta Dental of Arizona is notifying an undisclosed number of individuals that their personal and medical data was potentially breached by a phishing attack in July.On July 8, the dental insurer discovered suspicious activity on an employee email account and launched an investigation with help from third-party forensic investigators. They determined an employee fell victim to a phishing scam giving a hacker access to the email account…

…The notification did not explain the delay in reporting the incident. Under HIPAA, covered entities and business associates are required to provide breach notifications within 60 days of discovery.
