The purpose of this study was to investigate dental anxiety in a university setting, specifically the University of New England Oral Health Center. Surveys were used to gauge patient anxiety, determine the sources of their anxiety, and propose further approaches to reduce patient anxiety. This project assessed dental anxiety in 28 adult patients using the modified Norman Corah's Dental Questionnaire, and calculated the prevalence of dental anxiety in OHC... Read More

Poster presentation outlining a retrospective study conducted in order to better understand the needs of Maine residents and provide the appropriate oral health care in the future.
Background and Overview: Dental caries is a progressive, irreversible microbial disease affecting the hard tissues of the tooth. It is the most prevalent chronic disease affecting the human race. Once it occurs, its manifestations persist throughout life even when the lesion is... Read More
Remineralization Of Enamel Lesions Proximal To Dentin Cavitated Lesions Restored With Resin Modified Glass Ionomer In The Primary Dentition
Christina McCann, David Velek, Dzhuliya Servetnik, and Nicholas Wentworth
Poster presentation of research proposal addressing: the evaluation of dental hard tissue remineralization proximal to glass ionomer restorations. It is hypothesized that glass ionomer used in class II restorations will provide significantly more bioavailable fluoride and hard tissue remineralization on the proximal surface of adjacent teeth as compared to the same restoration completed using resin composite materials.
