Heat turns up in GA over dental implants on dogs

Georgia Regents University defended the school’s experimental dental implant procedures on dogs. But after the Humane Society‘s announcement of the school’s canine purchases from Class B vendors – vendors that can buy animals from shelters and other unknown sources,  the school has made some changes. Since the story broke in November, and an undercover video from The Humane Society Investigation of a dog experiencing a painful procedure went viral, the school has since changed their vendor choices. Now, they use solely Class A vendors – vendors that obtain animals specifically bred for clinical trials. The Humane Society  announced publicly that they will attempt to get the school to stop performing dental implants on dogs completely.

Regional Managers’ Meeting Leaving Crowd Inspired

During a recent Benco Dental Regional Managers’ meeting in AZ, the team had the opportunity to meet and  be inspired by W. Mitchell, author of ‘It’s Not What Happens to You, It’s What You Do About It.‘ Mitchell, who was burned in a severe fire and later paralyzed in a completely separate accident writes to tell his story and to help heal others.

“…nothing, absolutely nothing is absolute. Your life is entirely what you decide it is. It is your spaceship, your up, your down. The universe starts in your head and spreads out into the world. Change what happens in your head, and the universe changes.” – W. Mitchell

It’s a lifestyle, baby.

Heck what kind of cars do they like to drive? Dentists have a life too. And Incisal Edge  is the first magazine to explore dentists’ lifestyles. Plus you can always suggest ideas to the magazine by simply contacting the editor:
