The New Year is a time for resolutions — which has led me to think of the true meaning of that word. Resolution is defined as “a firm decision not to do something.” That doesn’t sound so positive to me. I am more invested in the word resolve, defined as to “decide firmly on a course of action.” That’s more like it! As leader of the MedMark team, our vision and our goals for 2020 are positive — we don’t want to “not do something”; we are going to take action on many exciting innovative, creative projects for our readers and advertisers. This year, on our media side, we continue to inform and educate through DocTalk videos and podcasts. We are especially excited about our new dental sleep medicine ZZZ Pack Podcast, which will bring news and views from some of the most knowledgeable sleep-focused dentists in the niche. Also, Dr. Rich Mounce will feature many of our most popular authors on his Dental Clinical Companion Podcast. In the past few years, I have been fortunate to help motivate our audience by interviewing some phenomenally inspiring people — Shaquille O’Neal, Tony Robbins, Simon Sinek, and Dr. Oz, and I will continue to connect you with those who can encourage you to expand your horizons.

Our print and digital articles continue to keep you on the cutting edge of clinical and practice management ideas and information. In this issue, for their CE, Drs. Filipe Amante and Patrik Zachrisson discuss a technique called “partial extraction therapy” for specific clinical circumstances that leaves a buccal fragment in situ, allowing for the preservation of the periodontal ligament, and an ideal soft, hard tissue volume preservation and vascularization. Dr. Johan Hartshorne’s CE aims to enhance understanding of the fundamental principles required for safe and effective use of CBCT technology — an imaging modality that increases diagnostic and communication capabilities, produces high-quality and accurate images, and is relatively easy to use. Dr. Matthew Hallas provides a case study on a new mode of therapy that uses high-frequency vibration for enhancing the integration of implants. In our Marketing column, Jackie Raulerson offers tips on writing articles in an organized and understandable way that both editors and readers will appreciate.

2020 has just started, and the opportunities to expand your practice potential are endless!  Along with our constant resolve to inform you through the written word of the most current technologies, products, services, and techniques, keep watching for us online and in person at major dental meetings and events across the United States. Please continue to contact us with your article ideas or if you want to take part in one of our online chats or podcasts. This year, “resolve” along with us to “embrace the exceptional.” Start the decade as we have — deciding firmly on a course of positive action based on solid science, facts, and innovation.

 

To your best success in 2020!
