A Tale of Two Dentists

Reflections on Choosing Wisely During a Trip to the Dentist

Meeting over coffee recently, Drs. Christine Goertz and Michele Maiers discovered that each had recently been to the dentist. After comparing notes, they agreed that their dentists were both professional, friendly, conducted a thorough patient history, and performed an appropriate examination. Then both dentists wanted to take intraoral X-rays as part of the examination process.

Battlefield Acupuncture: A Non-pharmaceutical Pain Reduction Option

Air Force Colonel Richard Niemtzow introduced the BFA protocol in 2001 as a subset of auricular acupuncture. In 2013, $5.4 million was awarded to the Departments of Defense (DoD) and Veterans Affairs (VA) to teach BFA to healthcare providers in both the military and department of Veterans Affairs and assess it.

Chiarotto et al. developed a core outcome set for use in clinical practice with accompanying suggested measures for patients with low back pain.

"People like to understand things. It’s an earnest and charming quality of the human race. We like to flip to the back of the book to look at the answers. We like it when there’s a tidy way to summarize things. One or two takeaways, please. It’s why Aesop’s fables continue to do so well."
