    Pulpdent Corporation, Virtudent partner to increase access to dental care for New Hampshire children
    Pulpdent Corporation (Boston, MA) is working in collaboration with Virtudent, the a US commercial teledentistry practice, to increase access to dental care for low-income children in New Hampshire. Pulpdent has donated 800 applications of Embrace Varnish for Virtudent's program at the Boys and Girls Clubs of NH. The majority (88%) of Virtudent's on-site dental appointments at the Boys and Girls Clubs of New Hampshire include a Fluoride Varnish treatment. Pulpdent has donated 800 applications of Embrace Fluoride Varnish to Virtudent's program for the Boys and Girls Clubs of NH. According to the CDC, over 15% of children and adolescents aged 2-17 did not see a dentist in 2015. Virtudent's research suggests that low-income youth lack access to dental care due to the uneven distribution of dentists in the US and the relatively small number of dentists who accept Medicaid. Virtudent currently offers on-site dental care and teledentistry services to 4,200 children at 8 Boys and Girls Clubs locations throughout New Hampshire.

    New studies link perio health to kidney health
    “Periodontal health has again been linked to kidney health in two new studies presented at the recent 2018 International Association of Dental Research (IADR) meeting in London. The studies found a significant association between chronic kidney disease and signs of poor periodontal health.
    “In one study, periodontal inflammation was associated with a decrease in kidney function, and in the other, patients with worse clinical attachment levels (CAL) were significantly more likely to have worse kidney function in the future. The research adds to the growing body of research that demonstrates the intricate relationship between oral and systemic health…” (click here to read more)

    School demolition crews unearth 124-year-old time capsule
    Construction crews tearing down a former middle school in Massachusetts have found a 124-year-old time capsule. Local news reports crews found the time capsule under one of the front steps of the former Swampscott Middle School. The capsule is dated April 28, 1894, the day the school was dedicated. It contains two newspapers, remnants of military uniforms from the Civil War, a war medal and names of locals who served in the war. Planning Board Chairwoman Angela Ippolito says they were aware the time capsule existed but weren't sure where it was located. She says the discovery was “quite a thrill.” The items are now heading to the Northeast Document Conservation Center for assessment.
