Consideration For Care For Your Patient With Cerebral Palsy, Katlin R. Cannon, Melissa Stowe, Brooke Ryan 2018 Virginia Commonwealth University

Consideration For Care For Your Patient With Cerebral Palsy, Katlin R. Cannon, Melissa Stowe, Brooke Ryan

Dental Hygiene Student Scholarship

Cerebral palsy (CP) is a common developmental neurological disorder affecting about 2-3 children out of 1,000. CP is the result of infant brain damage or abnormal development resulting in impaired muscle control, coordination, tone, reflex, posture, and balance. These patients are unable to control motor movements of their muscles of mastication and facial expression, causing excessive drooling, clenching, bruxism, and other oral health-related issues. This lack of motor control affects their ability to swallow and often limits these patients to a liquid diet. This can lead to vitamin deficiencies and result in further developmental problems. As an example, a ...


Dentistry In The Bible And Talmud, Samuel Greif 2018 Livre de Lyon

Dentistry In The Bible And Talmud, Samuel Greif

Health Sciences

The Talmud is a big voluminous work written in the Chaldaic language about two thousand years ago. It is the great Jewish encyclopedic work of knowledge, comprising the Jewish learnings and literature between about 200 b. c. e. and 300 c. e. It is the great reference book, employed for two thousand years, always rendering abundant material of both interest and value for topics of every description. The contributions of the Talmud to the history of dentistry are entirely new to the English reading public. They have found no mention in any of our historical works heretofore published. The author ...

Cpap-Mad Combination Therapy For Cpap Intolerant Patients With Moderate To Severe Osa, Jacob Stadiem 2017 University of Nebraska Medical Center

Cpap-Mad Combination Therapy For Cpap Intolerant Patients With Moderate To Severe Osa, Jacob Stadiem

Theses & Dissertations

The treatment of obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) allows for a multidisciplinary approach between dentistry and medicine. Continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP) is the gold standard for OSA treatment, but the non-adherence rates are high. The mandibular advancement device (MAD) has a higher acceptance rate than the CPAP, however the efficacy is much lower in cases of moderate to severe OSA. This thesis attempted to evaluate if there was a change in compliance when a MAD was added as a combination therapy to moderate to severe OSA subjects that were currently non-compliant with their CPAP. In addition, the change in air ...

Foxo1 Deletion In Keratinocytes Improves Diabetic Wound Healing Through Mmp9 Regulation, Chenying Zhang, Jason Lim, Hyeran H. Jeon, Fanxing Xu, Chen Tian, Fang Miao, Alhassan Hameedaldeen, Dana T. Graves 2017 University of Pennsylvania

Foxo1 Deletion In Keratinocytes Improves Diabetic Wound Healing Through Mmp9 Regulation, Chenying Zhang, Jason Lim, Hyeran H. Jeon, Fanxing Xu, Chen Tian, Fang Miao, Alhassan Hameedaldeen, Dana T. Graves

Departmental Papers (Dental)

Keratinocyte migration is a key aspect of re-epithelialization during wound healing. Matric metalloproteinase 9 (MMP9) contributes to this process and deificiencies in the MMP9 lead to impaired healing. Inappropriate expression of MMP9 also contributes to impaired re-epithelialization. Previously we demonstrated that FOXO1 was activated in wound healing but to higher levels in diabetic wounds. To address mechanisms of impaired re-epithelialization we examined MMP0 expression in vivo in full thickness dermal scalp wounds creared in experimental K14.Cre+.Foxo1L/L mice with lineage-specific Cre recombinase deletion of floxed FOXO1 and compared the results to control littermates. MMP9 was induced during ...

Effective And Ineffective Clinical Teaching And Instruction In Dental Hygiene School, Vicki Gianopoulos Pizanis 2017 University of New Mexico

Effective And Ineffective Clinical Teaching And Instruction In Dental Hygiene School, Vicki Gianopoulos Pizanis

Teacher Education, Educational Leadership & Policy ETDs

Introduction

Educators who teach in a clinical setting, primarily in healthcare fields, while having knowledge of the subject, having skills in what is taught, and having experience in the field, often have little-to-no training in teaching. This results in instructional practices being based upon intuition and experience. Becoming aware of how qualities and characteristics of clinical instructors affect adult learners’ educational experience through evidence-based research, and using its implications, would help promote more effective instruction and ultimately improve student learning.

Methodology

A mixed methods study using Grounded Theory and Critical Incidence technique was conducted to study junior student, senior student ...

Orofacial Pain Overview: Getting Rid Of The Riddles, Andrew L. Young 2017 University of the Pacific

Orofacial Pain Overview: Getting Rid Of The Riddles, Andrew L. Young

Andrew L. Young

While most pains that find their way to the dental office are dental in origin, some have less familiar roots: muscular, joint, neurological, headache, sinus or psychological. All of these roots can at times masquerade as a toothache. The purpose of this article is to alert the dentist to the select features of each root that distinguish it from the rest, resulting in efficient and appropriate treatment.

Collaborative Learning: Students’ Perspectives On How Learning Happens, Abdulaziz Almajed, Vicki Skinner, Ray Peterson, Tracey Winning 2016 School of Dentistry, The University of Adelaide, South Australia (currently Department of Dentistry, Prince Sultan Military Medical City, Riyadh, Saudi Arabia)

Collaborative Learning: Students’ Perspectives On How Learning Happens, Abdulaziz Almajed, Vicki Skinner, Ray Peterson, Tracey Winning

Interdisciplinary Journal of Problem-Based Learning

Collaborative learning (CL), a core component of inquiry-based learning approaches, aims to support students’ development of key skills (e.g., working in multidisciplinary teams). To design effective CL activities, we need to understand students’ perceptions about CL. However, few studies have examined students’ understandings of CL. This qualitative study aimed to address this gap by analyzing participants’ constructions of their CL experiences. Focus group data (14 first- and 14 fourth-year dental student volunteers) were analyzed by an inductive thematic analysis strategy. The findings explained students’ perspectives of key factors for facilitating positive learning within an inquiry-based CL context, namely having ...


Another Piece Of The “Silence In Pbl” Puzzle: Students’ Explanations Of Dominance And Quietness As Complementary Group Roles, Vicki J. Skinner, Annette Braunack-Mayer, Tracey A. Winning 2016 The University of Adelaide

Another Piece Of The “Silence In Pbl” Puzzle: Students’ Explanations Of Dominance And Quietness As Complementary Group Roles, Vicki J. Skinner, Annette Braunack-Mayer, Tracey A. Winning

Interdisciplinary Journal of Problem-Based Learning

A problem-based learning (PBL) assumption is that silence is incompatible with collaborative learning. Although sociocultural studies have reinterpreted silence as collaborative, we must understand how silence occurs in PBL groups. This essay presents students’ explanations of dominance, leadership, and silence as PBL group roles. An ethnographic investigation of PBL groups, informed by social constructionism, was conducted at two dental schools (in Australia and Ireland). The methods used were observation, interviews, and focus groups. The participants were volunteer first-year undergraduates. Students attributed dominance, silence, and members’ group roles to personal attributes. Consequently, they assumed that groups divided naturally into dominant leaders ...
