Journal of the Massachusetts Dental Society

The award-winning Journal of the Massachusetts Dental Society is published quarterly and contains a variety of articles on treatment methods, clinical diagnosis, medical and dental research, and professional and business information of interest to dentists.

Dental procedures involving drilling at very high speeds generate debris, such as amalgam, tooth enamel, and calculus, often also traveling at high speeds. In the absence of proper protection, this debris may find its way into the eyes of the practitioner or dental assistant. This article describes the eyewear recommended to avoid serious injury.    

Also in this issue:
•    Substance Abuse and Tooth Destruction
•    Dental Practice Demographics in Massachusetts
•    A New Integrated Oral Health and Care Model in Primary Education
