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.


The Massachusetts Dental Society would not be 150 years strong if not for the efforts of the members who selflessly volunteer their time to the Society and organized dentistry. Meet the four MDS members who were selected as the 2014 William McKenna Volunteer Heroes: Drs. Thomas M. Cleary Sr., Traci Portnoff, Michael Putt, and Frank Schiano.

This issue of the Journal also features a special pull-out 16-page insert highlighting dental practice transition brokers in the New England area to help educate our members on selecting a transition
company.

Stress is something we all face at one time or another, but does cramming for a test or feeling the pressure of bills really wear on our oral health as well as our nerves? Stress has already been linked to many serious health conditions, including heart disease and stroke, and now it seems that stress has been caught—this time red-gummed—in yet another unsavory act of hostility upon our bodies: gum disease. One recent Tufts University study claims that emotional stress contributes to gum disease because of its inflammation-causing effects.
