CEDAR FALLS, IA -- (Marketwired) -- 01/14/14 -- As a Cedar Falls dentist with more than 30 years of experience, Dr. Thomas J. Strub recognizes the significance of staying abreast of the latest advances in dental treatment techniques. Upholding the importance of education and networking, Dr. Strub says one of the ways he discovers new and more creative solutions to patient care is through dental study clubs. Currently, Dr. Strub is a member of the Minnesota Academy of Comprehensive Dentistry, a large-scale, invitation-only academy, and a smaller, intimate eight-member group called Really Profound Opportunities (RPO).
For a dentist who offers a range of treatment options, from dental implants to teeth whitening to routine dental cleanings, Dr. Strub says the advantages of membership in both clubs is invaluable. "There are several benefits. Number one, it keeps you on the cutting edge of the techniques, instruments, equipment, and materials out there. Probably the biggest benefit is you get to connect with some of the top one to two percent of the dentists in the United States. Especially with our eight-man study club, if I've got a question about different techniques or a different case, or some questions about how to do [something], they can give one of those people a call around the U.S. and see what they're using and doing; how, or if they've handled a case like this; and get some input and ideas on how to proceed."
The mission at Minnesota Academy of Comprehensive Dentistry is to provide dentists with a unique forum to present, study, and discuss topics in all fields of dentistry so they can enhance their clinical skills, expertise, and standard of care. "Just the connecting with some absolutely phenomenal dentists is really important," says Dr. Strub. "It gives you a number of different ideas, and keeps you in touch with the leaders in dentistry."
In a recent blog post, "What is a Dental Study Club? Find out How Dr. Thomas Strub Stays Up-to-Date on the Latest in Advanced Dentistry" Dr. Strub explains that RPO is distinctive because of the quality of its members. Two of the members are on the faculty at The Pankey Institute, which is known as a state-of-the art, leading dental education center in the U.S. Additionally, one of the aspects Dr. Strub finds most beneficial of RPO is its emphasis on practice management. Once a year, a practice management consultant is brought in so members can discover different ways to improve the relationships in the practice among the patients and staff, which is something that Dr. Strub finds to be extremely helpful.
Because Dr. Strub's philosophy is to provide an exceptional quality patient experience in combination with advanced dental care, he says that his membership in dental study clubs helps him fulfill both aspects of his practice's mission. In-between meetings, the dentists also maintain an open dialogue, sharing expertise and experience via phone or email to ensure they stay up-to-date on the latest techniques and materials. By emphasizing best practice management skills, examining patient cases, and discussing a variety of topics in restorative, cosmetic, and family dentistry, Dr. Strub says the dental study clubs help him provide patients with cutting edge dental care and an exceptional treatment experience.

What do a firewall and a fortress have in common? They are no longer strong enough to protect the valuables housed inside. Like the walls of an old fortress, the cracks in the firewall are allowing the bad guys to slip in - unannounced and unnoticed. By the time these thieves get in, the damage is already done and the network is already compromised. Intellectual property is easily slipped out the back door leaving no trace of forced entry. If we want to reign in on these cybercriminals, it's hig...

We are reaching the end of the beginning with WebRTC, and real systems using this technology have begun to appear. One challenge that faces every WebRTC deployment (in some form or another) is identity management. For example, if you have an existing service – possibly built on a variety of different PaaS/SaaS offerings – and you want to add real-time communications you are faced with a challenge relating to user management, authentication, authorization, and validation. Service providers will w...

The term culture has had a polarizing effect among DevOps supporters. Some propose that culture change is critical for success with DevOps, but are remiss to define culture. Some talk about a DevOps culture but then reference activities that could lead to culture change and there are those that talk about culture change as a set of behaviors that need to be adopted by those in IT. There is no question that businesses successful in adopting a DevOps mindset have seen departmental culture change, ...

WebRTC defines no default signaling protocol, causing fragmentation between WebRTC silos. SIP and XMPP provide possibilities, but come with considerable complexity and are not designed for use in a web environment. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Matthew Hodgson, technical co-founder of the Matrix.org, discussed how Matrix is a new non-profit Open Source Project that defines both a new HTTP-based standard for VoIP & IM signaling and provides reference implementations.
