Twelve-month randomized controlled trial of 38% silver diamine fluoride with or without potassium iodide in indirect pulp capping of young permanent molars (December 2022 Article 2)

JADA December 2022

Background.
The clinical and radiographic effectiveness of 38% silver diamine fluoride (SDF) with and without potassium iodide (KI) was tested and compared with resin-modified glass ionomer cement (RMGIC) in indirect pulp capping of deep carious lesions in young permanent molars.

Dental restorative materials containing quaternary ammonium compounds have sustained antibacterial action (December2022 Article 1)

JADA December 2022

Background.
This narrative review addresses dental restorative materials with sustained anti-bacterial action, especially those containing quaternary ammonium compounds. Secondary caries occurs around restorations, causing further loss of mineral and breakdown of the restoration. Lesions adjacent to restorations account for more than 40% of needed restorations. Restorative materials with antibacterial properties will potentially solve this problem.

Keywords.
Caries prevention; antibacterial restorative materials; secondary caries; quaternary ammonium compounds.

JADA November 2022

Background.
The International Caries Consensus Collaboration (ICCC) has published recommendations on carious tissue removal to treat cavitated carious lesions in a manner that preserves hard tissue and retains teeth long term. This study quantifies The National Dental Practice-Based Research Network dentistsuse of selective caries removal.

Keywords.

Assessment of dental health care personnel protocol deviations and self-contamination during personal protective equipment donning and doffing (November 2022 Article 2)

JADA November 2022

Background.
Dental health care personnel (DHCP) may be at increased risk of exposure to severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2, the virus that causes COVID-19, as well as other clini-cally important pathogens. Proper use of personal protective equipment (PPE) reduces occupational exposure to pathogens. The authors performed an assessment of PPE donning and doffing practices among DHCP, using a fluorescent marker as a surrogate for pathogen transmission.

Keywords.
Masks; eye protective devices; gloves, protective; health, occupational; dental infection control; COVID-19.

Amplifying Voices: Decolonizing History (Recorded Webinar)

American Dental Association on-demand webinar
This webinar was recorded November 2022.

Overview
In celebration of Native American Heritage Month, the ADA and the Society of American Indian Dentists hosted this panel discussion "Amplifying Voices: Decolonizing Dentistry." American Indians and Alaskan Natives (AI/AN), also referred to as Native Americans, currently suffer from the worst oral health outcomes in comparison to any racial or ethnic group within the United States.

The discussion covers:
• Ways to make dentistry more inclusive to indigenous populations (patients and professionals)
• How the infrastructure/profession of dentistry may challenge indigenous cultural values
•Ways indigenous populations celebrate culture in their practice
• Oral health disparities and barriers indigenous people face due to marginalization
• Personal experiences about their indigenous heritage and how it has informed and impacted their careers as dentists

Moderator: Sarah Rodgers, DMD

Panelists
Darlene Sorrell, DMD
• DezBaa Damon-Mallette, DMD
