The Columbia University College of Dental Medicine, 1916-2016: A Dental School on University Lines / By A.J. Formicola
Columbia University Press, 2016.

"In 1916, Columbia University established the School of Dentistry (now known as the College of Dental Medicine). In 1917, the university merged the school with the newly acquired New York Post-graduate School of Dentistry and New York School of Dental Hygiene. To those working in the health sciences, the move was a powerful signal of a field on the rise. It recognized dental medicine as a key component of individual and social well-being and initiated a monumental era in medical innovation and progressive public health outcomes.

This hundred-year history shares the turbulent story of dentistry, a medical field in the making. It recounts the institutional battles and research controversies that set the terms for the development and practice of dentistry. The assimilation of the dental school into the university system was not smooth. Rivalries played out in public and in private; traditionalists fought the inclusion of a young and evolving medical approach. Once the school found its footing, the College of Dental Medicine developed rapidly, and by the end of the twentieth century, had successfully launched a series of global outreach programs that immeasurably helped impoverished and underserved communities worldwide. The school's work now includes transitioning the field into the digital age and effecting even greater change in the lives of those without access to high-quality dental care. Featuring fascinating biographical details of the school's major teachers, administrators, and graduates, this book secures the reputation of Columbia University's College of Dental Medicine as a global leader in advancing the public good."

"This study assessed which behaviour management techniques, BMTs, pediatric dentists are using, and find effective in treating patients with Autism Spectrum Disorders, ASD and identified influences which contributed to their use. Surveys were mailed and emailed to 1669 members of the American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry. Seven hundred eighty-nine (48.2%) completed surveys were returned. Nearly 60% of respondents treated children with ASD weekly or more frequently. Of the 23 listed BMTs, General Anaesthesia, Tell-Show-Do, Distraction, and Non-verbal Communication, were considered effective. Seventy percent of respondents were primarily users of classical BMTs. Pharmacological and classical techniques, are used frequently, but may not be effective. Time and costs limit the use of modern techniques. Cost efficiency and long-term patient management were the most influential factors in selecting a BMT; patient co-operation was the least influential. Pediatric dentists recognized a need for further education related to behaviour management of children with Autism Spectrum Disorders."

"This book presents the current state of research on the basic scientific aspects of root canal biofilm biology within a clinically applicable context. Root canal biofilms are complex polymicrobial structures adhering to the root canal surface that are formed by microorganisms invading the pulpal space of teeth, and are associated with persistent root canal infections. Concerted efforts to study root canal biofilms have been made in the past decade, resulting in the publication of observational and experimental studies that detail the morphology and biology of these structures in infected root canals. In addition to confirming that bacteria in root canals do not exist in free-floating planktonic states as previously assumed, this new information on root canal biofilm infections has provided an opportunity to re-evaluate conventional clinical protocols and improve endodontic therapeutic measures."

Faced with the exponential development of Big Data and both its legal and economic repercussions, we are still slightly in the dark concerning the use of digital information. In the perpetual balance between confidentiality and transparency, this data will lead us to call into question how we understand certain paradigms, such as the Hippocratic Oath in medicine. As a consequence, a reflection on the study of the risks associated with the ethical issues surrounding the design and manipulation of this “massive data” seems to be essential. This book provides a direction and ethical value to these significant volumes of data. It proposes an ethical analysis model and recommendations to better keep this data in check. This empirical and ethico-technical approach brings together the first aspects of a moral framework directed toward thought, conscience and the responsibility of citizens concerned by the use of data of a personal nature.
  • Defines Big Data applications in health 
  • Presents the ethical value of the medical datasphere via the description of a model of an ethical analysis of Big Data 
  • Provides the recommendations and steps necessary for successful management and governance of personal health data 
  • Helps readers determine what conditions are essential for the development of the study of Big Data

Early Nutrition and Long-Term Health: Mechanisms, Consequences, and Opportunities: A Volume in Woodhead Publishing Series in Food Science, Technology and Nutrition / Edited By J.M. Saavedra and A. Dattilo
Copyright 2017 Elsevier Ltd. 

The nutrition of an individual during gestation and the first two years of life—the first 1,000 days—sets the stage for lifelong health. Nutrition quality and quantity in this period can influence the risk of developing diseases that constitute today’s epidemics. Early-life nutrition can program the body’s tissues, organ structure and function, and metabolic and immunologic responses. These factors impact growth, development and cognition, and the risk of cardiovascular diseases, allergies and obesity. The first part of Early Nutrition and Long-Term Health examines the mechanisms by which early nutrition affects the risk of developing these conditions. The second part of this book reviews specific non-communicable diseases (NCDs) associated with early nutrition. The third part discusses the effects of nutritional programming from fetal life to toddlerhood. Prevention of over- or undernutrition in early life, rather than dietary, behavioral or therapeutic interventions in later life, is likely to have a greater return on society’s investment in coping with the modern epidemic of NCDs.

Examines the relation between early life nutrition and long-term health

Covers the mechanistic aspects of nutritional programming and its impact on risk of chronic non-communicable diseases

Reviews associations between infant and child diet and its effect on growth, development, cognition and later occurrence of cardiovascular diseases, allergies, metabolic conditions and obesity

Health Industrialization discusses the way healthcare professionals distinguish between medicine, surgery, and diet and lifestyle guidelines. In other words, the ways that medicine aims to provide quantity of life. 

Men and women would rather remain in good health as long as possible and compensate for the deficiencies that crop up to the best of their abilities. Hence, they are looking for quality of life that results in tensions brought on by different objectives. This book hypothesizes that this tension is the cause of an industrialization of medicine or health that depends to a degree on the point-of-view we choose.

  • Offers the key to understanding how this new form of industry will spread to create real change in the field of patient care 
  • Explores ethical issues and analyzes the various technologies at work in this transformation

Understanding Dental Caries : From Pathogenesis to Prevention and Therapy / by Michel GoldbergSpringer, 2016.

"The present book focuses most exclusively on the carious lesion, going from the initial pathogenesis of the lesion, mild enamel alteration, to deep dentin lesions, which appear as a major pathology with pulpal irreversible incidences. The therapies and prevention of the enamel decay are analyzed in the fi rst part of this book. After a brief description concentrating on the structure and epidemiology of the diverse forms of enamel alterations, carious lesions are reported. We describe successively enamel softening and analyze the etching pattern of acidic effects on enamel. Doing so, we moved from the superfi cial etching to the initial enamel carious lesion. Bacterial films and acidic biofi lms of the dental plaque lead to the formation of active and/or inactive lesions. The methods used for an accurate diagnosis of the carious lesion were improved during the past few years, and a specific chapter concludes the first part of the book, by reporting new diagnostic methods."
