From the Bulletin of Dental Education - ADEA Tell Your Senators to Oppose the Graham-Cassidy Amendment! The Senate is planning to consider an amendment by Senators Graham, Cassidy, Heller, and Johnson this week to the American Health Care Act of 2017 (H.R. 1628). This amendment would put at risk the health of more than 21 million Americans each year during 2020 to 2026 by reducing their health coverage, benefits, and access. Medicaid expansion has helped to increase dental care utilization rates among publicly insured children. The proposal removes the certainty states count on to be able to provide oral health care coverage to the most vulnerable children and adult populations, including those impacted by natural disasters and public health emergencies. Please take a couple of minutes to contact your Senators by Wednesday, September 27, 2017 to let them know how detrimental this amendment would be to patient dental care for vulnerable populations. Ask them to vote “No” on the Graham-Cassidy Amendment.

VCU Dentistry shared Virginia Commonwealth University's post.
Dear Members of the VCU and VCU Health Community, This Saturday, a group of protesters plans to rally on Monument Avenue, just a few blocks away from the VCU Monroe Park Campus, in support of preserving Richmond’s monuments to the Confederacy. Counter-protesters also plan to assemble nearby in opposition. Public safety officials from across the region, including VCU Police, have a plan in place, but this is likely to be an emotionally charged, volatile and unpredictable setting. For your safety, I strongly encourage all members of the VCU community to avoid this area Saturday. There is precedence for violence at this kind of demonstration, and your safety is my paramount concern. We all have the freedom of speech, expression and peaceful assembly. As members of a research university community dedicated to education and creativity, we take those freedoms seriously. We also have the autonomy of sound judgment, and we recognize that difficult or contentious debates can be productive only when the threat of violence will not drown out our voices. I will always support and encourage all of our people to stand up for your beliefs. But we must do so without physical confrontation and harm. Our educational mission—and indeed our democracy—depends on humans listening to and learning from each another and moving forward together, not silencing either by act or by intimidation of those with whom we disagree. As the national dialogue becomes more vitriolic, we at VCU double-down on our core values of diversity, inclusion, civility and mutual respect. That commitment takes every one of us, from all backgrounds, working together across demography and discipline. Our diversity has always been our trademark, and we recognize that it is also what makes us great. Our commitment also takes persistence, and the acrimonious national conversation tells us that we still have much to do. We must continue to speak up as a university community, to reinforce our values, to come together and to listen and learn from one another – always respectfully and always safely. Sincerely, Michael Rao President VCU and VCU Health System

VCU Dentistry shared Philips Institute- VCU School of Dentistry's post.
Congratulations to Dr. Janina Lewis, Justin Hutcherson, Kat Sinclair, Ross Belvin, and Qin Gui on publishing their paper titled, "Amixicile, a novel strategy for targeting oral anaerobic pathogens". Amixicile is an antimicrobial compound that targets a different mechanism than any other drug on the market which may lead to less acquired resistance against it. It has been shown to be very effective against a variety of periodontal pathogens. It has possible uses as a prophylactic as well as a therapeutic treatment.

The oral microflora is composed of both health-promoting as well as disease-initiating bacteria. Many of the disease-initiating bacteria are anaerobic and include organisms such as Porphyromonas gingivalis, Prevotella intermedia, Fusobacterium nucleatum, and Tannerella forsythia.
